Spells & Abilities
From a post on EQLive by Blurred_Memories:
My priority AA routine is like this:
First – Get anything that will help me live longer. Rationale? You can’t do (expletive deleted) if you are dead.
Second – Get anything that directly or indirectly grants a power that is unique, awesome, and / or abusable like beguiler’s directed banishment, enhanced forgetfulness, fog of memories etc.
Third – Get anything that helps reinforce the likelihood or strength of your most used or necessary spells.
Fourth (or as needed) – mana regen. yes i know mana total will get you on leaderboards but i’d gladly give up 3/4 of my mana bar for double my current mana regen.
Lastly – convenience aa’s like perma lev or mass group buff etc.
*and as a rule, passives before clicks.
LIVE LONGER AA’s:
I highly recommend combat agility, combat stability, natural durability, shield block if you use a shield, and general sturdiness. All of these are passive aa’s and either give you more hit points or keep the ones you already have from disappearing as fast.
Veil of Mindshadow, Hastened Veil of Mindshadow:
keep this buffed below all your other runes since it takes longer to refresh it.
since self stasis lasts its full duration whether you need it to or not, I made this social so i could use Friendly stasis like a slower bard fade:
line1 /tar blurred
line2 /pause 1
line3 /alt activate 8702
line4 /alt activate 8702
the pause is necessary or you end up casting on your previous target. now click off friendly stasis and go back to (expletive deleted) things off.
Mind Over Matter / Mana Draw:
These two work great in combination for when your healer is dead and you are taking massive ae damage, or accidentally tanking.
good passives to have are:
Mezmerization Mastery: this allows permanent lock down of an infinite number of mobs with the blue gem ae mez.
Earthen Allure, Dreamlike Allure: anything that helps lessen the chance of mez resisting should always be considered.
Quick Buff: This i got primarily so rebuffing runes would be faster, but it also is beneficial for rebuffing battle rezzed allies.
Auroria Mastery, Total Domination, Spell Casting mastery,
Bite of Tashani, Dreary Deeds
2nd spire of enchantment, 3rd spire of enchantment.
Whenever you go to use one of your spires, please announce it in the chanter channel which spire you are casting and on who before you actually cast it. If two chanters notice same cleric needs mana we do not want to waste a spire by tagging the same person in the same 10 seconds.
Escape (59/9) and SoS (63/6) are usually the first two “automatics”
run speed (51/3, up to 5 at 61)
Triple Backstab (65/3×12)
enhanced aggression (66/5×15)
Veteran’s Wrath (67/3×9) req CF6
Precise strikes (70/9×5) req Precision/3
planar power (61/2×5, etc)
Ambidexterity(59/9)/Sinister Strikes (65/12) req Ambi
nimble evasion (61/1×5)
Various hasten escape/stealth, etc
I think that the basic general path for a cleric is well understood: get run speed 3, SCM 3, Divine Arbitration, Healing Gift 3 (required for CR), Celestial Regen/Renewal, then get Healing Adept 3, Radiant Cure 1, and MGB (if you raid). It’s after that it starts to get tricky.
I favour Spell Casting Reinforcement 3 and SCR Mastery, Mnemonic Retention, then some mix of the various missing Archetype AAs (CA/CS/CF/SCF/ND/MC), and the further ranks of HA/HG and CR, plus Planar Power/Innate Enlightenment. (continue reading…)
I am upgrading my cleric’s AAs. He had 75, now has roughly 90, and I need to look to the next few. He has: run speed 3, regen 3, SCM 3, SCR 3, DvA, CR, RC1, HG 3, HA 3, MGB, SCF1, MC1, CA1, CS1, ND1 and probably a few more that I forget.
SCS, GoM, Healing Boon, SCF3, UD3, CA3/LR5, MC2, Div Res, Run Speed 5 all come in secondary to the above list, but still important.
I need to start to plan upgrades for my druid’s AAs. He’s 62, and has been for a while, and may well stay 62 for a while longer. Unless I decide to drag him along to Time (or CoA) raids, in which case he’ll get the necessary levelling. (continue reading…)
A couple of notes included on why these spells are considered rare. Probably missing a lot. Most of these combines need a piece of parchment and a quill. Priest spells can be combined by any int caster; int caster spells only by members of the same class as can use the spell.
Levitation: dew clover, Yaeth’s 70 left (enchanter only: Yaeth 65 left and right)
Everlasting Breath: sliver of moonstone, Yaeth’s 50 left (enchanter only: Yaeth’s 63 left and right)
Lots of classes, each drop only from one rare mob (in the Deep, I think).
Remove Greater Curse: Yaeth’s 73 right, words of apparition
Arch Lich and one of the Rhags in Ssra. Can also be bought in N Ro LDoN, 800 points.
Several general enchanter spells drop, but are uncommon – Forlorn Deeds, Augment. Go to Skyfire, or the kobolds in Velks (depending on which expansion the spells were released in).
Illusion Vah Shir: Keris 7 left and right
Drops only from the Shissar Assassin in Ssra, needs a rogue to access the room.
Dead Men Floating: words of agony and asylum
No, not Dead Man Floating, the group version.
Augmentation of Death: words of anguish and expedition
Demi Lich: words of awareness, revenant, tenancy
Despite being a level 56 spell, this used to be level 60, and still only drops from level 60 mobs in Kunark.
Gangrenous Touch of Zum’uul: words of abrogation, constancy, distress
Drops from 2 mobs in Chardok; only marginal use.
Word of Redemption: Yaeth’s 114 right, Yaeth’s 108, rune of conglomeration
Divine Intervention: Toharon 21 left, Toharon 22, words of recourse
Both level 60 Kunark drop spells.
