<p><blockquote>Alternate: Siphon Armament: Increased mitigation gained by 33% more than before. Can now be cast on a raid ally. </blockquote></p><p>Until yesterday i could cast Siphon Armament on anyone in my Group. I mostly cast it on a Plate Healer in the MT or OT group. Now its Raidwide but on Figthers only. But since there only 2 Tanks in a Raid most of the Time Please SOE tell me on which Fighter should i cast it? On our MT? <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

Wohoo ... triple nerf! Strength buff gone, Reaper weakened and this. SOE really knows how to kill fun.

FTL. </blockquote>Only Paladin / Crusaders can transfer mit to people. Not all tanks can. And that is probably a bug if it is usable on tank ONLY. You should /bug it because i dont think it should be tank only.

Master I Pledge of Armament gives you 425 mit. 5 AAs in Siphon Armament gives you 467. Since it works raidwide it lets you use another non-crusader as someone giving you mitigation. Whether or not that's worth the 5 AA points to you really depends on your situation. I think for some it might. Not for me though.

This was a fix.. I remember it being on the description when i got it.. Though in its current form now and my situation I specced out of it last night.. Percentage of usage while tanking went from 100 to like 20% Its realy not a 5 aa value at that rate... Maybe more for raiding while tanking and you have the spare fighters. But normal groupings i rare see another fighter.

To those of you who are complaining about this, cry me a river.  If you had read the description from the beginning then this change should have never come as a surprise.

<p>Like the entire Paladin Description compared to in game ? =P </p><p>or Like +89.6 spell Damage ?  when they realy meant to say ohh its alot less or...... Unhallowed Strength which gives STA and spell dmg and ......... realy you could dig up alot overall. Never trust descriptions fully or make mistakes in classes ..... </p>

<p>Ok So issue here is how is Siphon armament Balanced with AA spent for it Vs Despoil AA or Siphon Str.. Or Sacrilage ... Or Graven Embrace or ... Pretty much anything realy now that i think more on it Rofl..</p><p>Every other AA gives a Gain Prominetly Used all the time.. Besides this one now ... This requires to have a another fighter besides sk or paladin (why not just armament) to even be used ... I can see it now /1 lvl70SK LFG EoF/KOS Blah blah ... Require another fighter in group for best mit result from my AA... lol. and to what avail ? If a take a casters or my healers mit they would die fast, if i take a fighters mit they can still take the hits ? the caster/healer dieing fast is so overbalanced ? lol </p><p>Ohh no wait i got it, If a raid wants an SK to tank to full Specced potential the raid will need a extra fighter which promotes more fighters for raid ? why not get guard problem solved ...........They have more HP and with avoidence being the thing now .....</p><p>Its not a complaint its just an observation of what it is now.. I dont care i specced away from it and getting the AA gain Elsware at this point with no regrets. </p>
