Effidian 02-22-2008 01:08 AM

<p>This is an updated version of the old T7 list(<a rel="nofollow" href="http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/posts/list.m?topic_id=372638" target="_blank">http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/...topic_id=372638</a>).  This list is intended to be the best gear you can get without raiding.  It is mainly targeted at a group setting, or stuff to get before you get replacements in raids.  For soloing, you will probably want to hang onto some of those items with healing and stun procs.  If you have suggestions for pieces, throw them out and I'll edit this list if we find better pieces.</p><p>Some points about these pieces:</p><ol><li>A haste item is really nice (I'd even say necessary).  There are 4 listed.  The Cloak of Flames, Baldric of the Di'Zok Warlord, Darkened Gauntlets, and Faceless Shield.  Items with "Haste" do *not* stack, while items with "Attack Speed" do.  Usually, "Haste" items have larger values (20ish), where Attack Speed increases are small (1-5ish).  So, make sure to wear one "Haste" item.  The Cloak of Valor is very nice for DPS, so I'd recommend against a haste cloak.</li><li>Item names are linked to lootdb, so just click on them to see the item.  I just list the more important stats, however, lootdb isn't always accurate, so if what you see isn't the same as what I have listed, try linking it in game.  Because of this, I very well could have missed some items that are better than the ones listed.  </li><li>Some slots have more than one item, where it wasn't clear to me which was better, or they are alternates for haste item slots.</li><li>The 8 dps on the Tunare earring is really nice unless you hit the diminishing returns curve in groups you are typically in.  If you have enough dps in your typical group, then swap in one of the crit earrings. </li><li>Honoring the Master Chef has 2 good Ranger option rewards.  The chest piece, <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.lootdb.com/eq2/item/464321480" target="_blank">Coat of the Culinary Apprentice</a>, and the wrist item, <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.lootdb.com/eq2/item/-1818008858" target="_blank">Wristwrap of the Culinary Apprentice</a>.  Both are listed below, but you can only choose one.</li><li>Lines in <i>italics</i> are alternates for pieces that are random no-trade drops.</li></ol><p>Legend:</p><p>RDA = Ranged Double AttackRC = Ranged CritCA = CA Damage</p><ul><li>Head - <b><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.lootdb.com/eq2/item/-1654149422" target="_blank">Cowl of Many Disciples</a></b> 30 str, 2 RC (Maiden's)</li><li>Head -

<p>The difference with the haste stacking is usually haste is a large number +20 or so and Attack speed is usually the smaller ones +1, +2 etc.   From what i've seen all items with attack speed stack but you can only use one item with haste on it. </p><p>Before the nerf the shield from Fear was attack speed so it stacked with your CoF or DT amulate or your other haste item - then they changed it to haste and it was worthless.</p>

Webin 02-22-2008 08:45 PM

See Effidian.  This is why I like you.

Gisallo 02-25-2008 07:05 AM

<p>Now here's a question.  Just got up to 71 and am a wondering.  Is it worth my Plat to buy the lvl 72 Mastercrafted Melodious Chain armor pieces (except the hands, I have Darkened Gauntlets already for that and the haste rocks).  As I will be 72 before weeks end just want to know if I should save my 5-7 plat for other things with the expectation of questing for these items.  </p>

Lodor 02-25-2008 08:53 AM

<p>For the belt slot there is the faction bought one from the reet in KJ. Also the set sleeves with the 2 RDA on them.</p><p>Also i know most rangers wont care but I imagine someone willing to put the time into it the pvpers might like a list that is more pvp based.</p>

Effidian 02-26-2008 04:20 AM

<p>I wonder if wearing 3 pieces of the Impetuous Strike set would be worthwhile to get the 2 RDA bonus?  The shoulders (which give 2RDA), the gloves, and probably the hat.  Wearing those 3 pieces, you gain 51 str, 24 int, 4 RDA.  Wearing the other 3 pieces listed would give you 93 str, 35 int, 2 Attack Speed, 3 RC, 80 CA, 5 Ranged.  Seems like a lot to trade off for the 4 RDA, but double attack is very nice.  Guess it is time to do some parsing...</p><p>The next question would be, would wearing 6 pieces be worth it for the damage proc?  I'm missing the hat and boots, so I can't try that yet.  I need to get the hat and try that out (since I really wouldn't want to give up the Trooper Scale boots).</p>

<p>The reet faction belt is:</p><p> Krup Belt Of Evasion</p><p>+15 str, +1 ranged, +1 ranged crit, +42 CA damage</p><p>I think the best non raid belt for rangers.</p>

xandez 02-26-2008 03:03 PM

this or the scorpikis faction belt with +42 STR etc... (mentioned in other thread)++Xan

Effidian 02-27-2008 10:23 PM

<p>Added the Krup Belt of Evasion.</p><p> (Already had the Scorpikis belt listed.)</p>

Effidian 02-28-2008 01:27 AM

Added Darkened Gauntlets to the set for Haste.  The Fireproof gloves are kinda weak, and the Cloak of Valor and the one of the other belts are pretty nice, so if you use either of those slots for Haste, you loose out on a nice piece.

For now just leave the Pig Sticker on there. I haven't tested the Anaphylaxis vs the PS yet so I can't say for sure which is better. </p><p>The only reason I had the CTL on my list was because it is FAR supperior to the GBoB and I wanted to be sure Rangers upgraded to it at level 68 instead of using the GBoB all the way to 75.

By the way that is what I like the most about playing a Ranger. The people behind the toons are some of the most helpful I have ever met and have helped me play my Ranger so much better since the day I started 3 years ago, and in fact help me to play Danean better and better every day. </p><p>The only other improvement I would suggest is changing over to EQ2WIKI for your item links.

<p>Thanks Danean (sorry I keep calling you dbmoreland, I always see your name when I reply and it is listed as dbmoreland.  <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY<img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />" width="15" height="15" /> )</p><p>I'll leave the CTL off the list since it is a bit out of place (since it would belong in a progression list).  </p><p>And I'll work on switching the item links over to EQ2I.  (Edit: Gah, they don't have all the items.  I'll keep this in mind and try to figure something out.  I also like that the item link is right at the top of the page in LootDB.)</p><p>I PM'd a moderator for help on the sticky cleanup, so hopefully we'll get some changes soon.</p>

I'm having trouble finding the "Honoring the Master Chef" details. Anybody by chance have a link or info? I'm getting nothing from EQ2i and Allakhazam's.

<p>Added Ironhide Gloves.  </p><p>Made slot names match in game names.</p>

I'm just curious on this. I just did a quick run of the numbers here and I came up with 666 Str for all this equipment, then you'll add whatever your race would have and any AA points you chose. I've taken a substantial Str loss already in upgrading to some of these.Is there a target for what our Str should be? Is there any consensus on how much Str is equivalent to 1 point of RC? I'm now less than 550 strength when I used to be approaching 700 and am curious about what you guys know.
