From a thread on EQLive, posted by Mykalla; I updated the links and added mob names and proc rates.
Okay, so, boomsticks for a 71 cleric:
Time Lapse procs (750pt magic dd)
Wrapped Glass Shard – From DoN miniraid (Shogurei, Guardian of the Sands), soloable by a t4 geared SK, provided you’re not really under-AAed. Can’t take a merc in. Proc mod 0.
Void Mace – DoDH 70 spell mission (The Shattered Seeker), mercs usable in here. Proc mod 0.
Wand of Dark Waters – Ruins of Illsalin (A Forgotten Guardian), open zone so have at with mercs. Proc mod 0.
Illuminated Hammer – Yxtta, old raid mob (Primals), but it’s an open zone- I’d use the SK for it. Proc mod 0.
Hammer of Hours – Plane of Time, Terris-Thule. No merc, but your SK should be able to handle it. She’s a damned sight easier than Vallon Zek, too, who has a stupidly long stun and an FD, from a soloing perspective. Proc mod 0.
Conflagration procs (622 pt fire dd)
Wand of Magma – Tirranun’s Delve (Fire Goblin Scribe), easily doable. It’s not no-trade, but I doubt you’ll find one on the bazaar, since no one goes there. On the plus side, that means the mob might already be up. Proc mod 0.
Scepter of Forbidden Knowledge – Txevu (Ikaav Nysf Lleiv). Once again, technically a raid mob, but it’s a static zone, so you can merc in there. Proc mod 0.
Dustdevil proc (582 pt magic dd)
Aged Smoldering Cudgel – This weapon has a 188% procmod on it, so it will fire more often. Xygoz fears, so use your SK- easy solo for him, run through the zone, feign off aggro, solo Xygoz, and hopefully pick up an Aged Left Eye of Xygoz for the SK while you’re at it. Hardest thing about this mob for you will be finding Xygoz up, since people still go to get the ALEX. Proc mod1 188.
If, what you are, in fact, after, is a spam hammer (so called because they spam you with messages like crazy due to the increased procrate), I would try to hit the bazaar and look for:
Templar’s Censer – It’s from the brief Cazic-Thule revamp (Tae Ew Templar), but unlike the weapons from the entire Secrets of Faydwer expansion, which have no mod, it has a procrate modifier of 275%, if not quite as high as the standard spam hammer of 500% in modern times, and 530% on the PoP-to-TSS raid ones. It also has heroics. Proc mod1 275.
Marrowfall – Oceangreen Hills (Putrescent Bonelord), easy as pie for your SK to kill, if you can’t find one in the bazaar. Proc mod1 500.
The Time spam hammer from Vallon Zek (Hammer of Holy Vengeance, Hand of Retribution, 75 – 100 dd, proc mod1 530) would probably be a fairly sucky solo, as I said, due to the stun and FD, but that’s another one.
If you want to get in touch with any of the SOE Community Leaders, here’s a list including forum name, class and highlighting members of two top guilds that are over-represented in the programme. (continue reading…)
