<DIV><FONT size=2>I have noticed that we are spread very thin on key abilities with no real "niche" in the world of EQ2 where we excel.

<DIV>Ok made some fixs...</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Also I know we have different lines of DD spells but the main compenent is DD so I lumped them all in 1 section to keep the list from being too spread out.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>What level is Torment anyhow? I dont even have that spell on my list!</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>As for Gloom and Melancholy, I put those in their own catagory as they main use later on is debuffing a mob for large DD spells to land</DIV> <P>Does the list look closer now?</P><p>Message Edited by Nibbles on <span class=date_text>03-10-2005</span> <span class=time_text>01:31 PM</span>

<DIV>Its a descret lines </DIV> <DIV>or from your list will looks like that Seizure is upgrade for Ego Blast ... which is not</DIV> <DIV>or if may forms false impression that Despair is not upgrade for Melancholy and those 2 dots not share same timer and not overright each other</DIV> <DIV>Technically Gloom is sitting on separate timer with Melancholy and Despair for a reason its "enchantment" skill and Mel and Desp are "Protean"</DIV> <DIV>Btw if you look close on debuff component ...Despair Adept 3 1100-1650, cannt recall Melancholy, Gloom around 330-500 at Adept 3. Ravage Psyche 1100-1590</DIV> <DIV>Torment lvl 46 spell or 45.6 spell - btw check my post "Spell lets share impression" - I posted detailed discription on every single coercer spell from lvl 20 to lvl 50 and updated list as soon as I was getting new information</DIV>

<DIV>The 3 AE you listed share the same timer. We dont have 3 AE, we choose 1 and that is it.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

This will give a very clear view on how the scaling of all our spell lines are out of whack and maybe give a starting spot.</P> <P>In the slim chance of a development person seesthis thread - is there somewhere we can get the direct numbers that each spell shuold have in out line at Adept 1?<BR></P>
