View Full Version : Just found a Purloin Essence Master (On Permafrost)

<DIV>Is this a useful skill and what is a good fair price to set for this?  I realize this sounds like a server specific question but I cant imagine these get found everyday so your advice is appreciated.  I'd rather not be hated by every Troub on the server or be known as a gouger either<img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV>

Tbh I don't think it's worth that much. The spell (atleast at adept1) does not return more power than it costs. Perhaps at master lvls it will return more than the cost in which case it's more useful, I doubt anyone has any info about drain/return values for it at mastervalue though.

<DIV>@pure fun: you either haven't figured out what to use power drains for or you play on Permafrost and want to keep the price low. </DIV> <DIV>Purloin Essence may be the BEST Troubadour spell against major boss mobs. And I can't imagine what the going price on this will be...</DIV>

@yarghon : Yes, I have no idea what I'm talking about. Powerdrains are useless to 45+ xpmobs since they die too fast. Bossmobs most damaging abilities usually are innate abilities, they are timed specials that can be executed even if it's stunned/out of power/... Furthermore, taffo's dazzling ditty (app1) drains about half of purloin essence (adept1) and does a fair bit of damage aswell. Till there are some hard numbers about purloin essence master1 it's hard to determine its effectiveness, it could be similar to raxxyls energizing harmony (+23 at adept1 to +26 at master1) which isn't exactly a stellar improvement.
