<DIV>YO!</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I'll keep this short and sweet as I have seen some fairly long messages regarding wards.</DIV> <DIV>I am not taking a side as I feel I haven't the right to do so being so low level at this point and time.</DIV> <DIV>I am only lvl20(had 70 shaman)</DIV> <DIV>Played EQ1 for 5 years(but totally realize and enjoy the difference in EQ2) so I realize what an inept healer is alllll about.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>O.K.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Most of the statements seem to boil down to lack of mitigation for wards.</DIV> <DIV>It is not fair that other priests heals account for mitigation.</DIV> <DIV>In addition, its the "style" moves abilities etc.. that are tearing up the wards in one or two shots.</DIV> <DIV>Slow being a factor in this doesn't count because it doesnt affect speed of "style" moves that are doing the majority of the damage.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>AC and MITIGATION DO NOT AFFECT "special" ATTACKS!!!!</DIV> <DIV>Period.</DIV> <DIV>End of statement.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>So if one side is going to argue that wards are useless because they dont count for mitigation, and they only soak up one hit at higher levels and slow isn't a factor because the real damage comes form those "styles" then.....</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>The fact that mitigation has ZERO affect on said "styles" should not the be the complaint... AMOUNT of damage warded would seem to be the better fix.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>It is hypocritical to say that our wards suck because they go off before mitigation and then say that only the "style" attacks of the enemy do any significant damage.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Just a thought. I like my Mystic at this point but as I stated, I am too low level to have an opinion as to what "needs" to be changed.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>2 Priest stacking in same group ideas will be for another post <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>P.S. If I am totally off base please inform me as to what I misconstrued.</DIV>
