View Full Version : got a coral, which spell to upgrade?

12-06-2004, 04:32 PM
i think there are only 4 possible spells worth the very rare coralspectral ward, ursine elder, contagion, or grey wind. (does ursine elder use a coral tho or something higher?)currently my spells are.spectral ward apprentice 3contagion adept 1grey wind adept 1ursine elder apprentice 3wailing haze adept 1healing ritual adept 1totemic aid apprentice 2that said i belive the best choice would be spectral ward ... however im already 23 and we get a new ward at 26, so would i be better using it on something else or would adept 3 spectal ward be equal or better than ancestral ward at apprentice 1the other spells that i consider candidates are already adept 1 and i hear that adept 3's are bugged and atm not actually better than adept 1's? any input would be much appreciated

Ursine Elder is Tier 3.I'd be more likely to look at Grey Wind as the others can be replaced soon unless you think you are likely to stack 2 DOTs at one time. I had the same problem myself recently, but I still haven't got around to finding a sage/scholar related tradeskiller yet.

yes but grey wind is already adept 1 and i had heard there was no real difference from adept 1 to adept 3 yet, note that i dont know that for a fact as none of my spells are yet adept 3, thats just what ive heard

<DIV>I'd probably use it on contagion. Stacked DoT's are good. Grey Wind would be good also, but may be less useful as you continue to level and replace it for a more powerful DD.</DIV>

<DIV>I got my spectral ward upgraded to adept 3, even tho I have ancestral ward also.</DIV> <DIV>The spectral ward sticks better at adept 3 than ancestral ward at app 2 (need palladium for upgrade).</DIV> <DIV>Also having two wards that are good is nice. No problems with recast time and stuff.</DIV> <DIV>I think I will be using spectral ward also for a long time even after I got ancestral ward to adept 3.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>If you are more a solo'er, you probably don't need the ward upgraded and better damage would be nicer, but if you are main healer a lot in teams</DIV> <DIV>that do red^^ mobs, the upgraded ward comes in very handy.</DIV>

<DIV>What does the Coral do exactly? is it simply a piece of a recipe needed to Create the Adebt 3 version of the spell?</DIV>

<DIV>I am currently a lvl 23 shaman and lvl 20 sage with all of the advanced scholar books.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I found a coral and had a similar idea.  Upgrade gray wind.  Unfortunatly, some of the adept 3 version of spells are currently missing from the advanced scholar books and gray wind is one of them (unless it has been added in one of the patches this week).</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Instead I upgraded contagion and it currently does around 30 per tick and I haven't regretted it.</DIV>
