So I have been really enjoying my Main Samius – Am(evoc)Wiz/rog in Shiradi with the different stances running. And I was talking with Tobril on Teamspeak about why I like the Rainbow/Double Rainbow line.
Then we finished up the raid we were running and I swapped to Javabot to get a little xp who happens to be a rank short of taking double rainbow at the start of our screwing off and after a few runs has the points to double up. I was so excited to see how this stance would boost Java’s Dps, as you all know he is a winter wolf melee style DC based druid so he could use a little boost to push him over into the big boy club…
But a few more quests looking for any rainbow procs and I saw none…
I could cast like an ice storm or an earthquake and see the occasional proc but nothing from the any of my wolf attack spells? That seems wrong to me.
They are offensive spells, they cost SP, use spell slots can’t be cast in anti-magic zones. WFT?
So I am turning in a bug report. And I will ask any of you that might also be rocking animal form druids to do the same. This seems wrong to me and needs to be changed.
So on Samius I have been “gathering the low hanging fruit” destiny wise anyway. This last weekend, thanks to the xp boost, I was able to break into the primal destinies. Unlike some of the other lines I felt like I could be bothered to put points into this this line and I am super pleased.
Did you know that all the Shiradi procs also trigger on spells? Can’t say that I did.
Hmmm I am an evocation AM right now. That means I throw a lot of Magic Missiles around. Trust me for 2 sp for 150ish damage is fairly good way to throw SP at a mob. And is really stainable. If like me you cycle those clicklies I can web and then just spam MM, Avenging light, un-meta-ed MM, ChainM, un-meta-ed MM about the time to start the chain again.
So to say I have a lot of shots at the different Shiradi effects is an understatement. It worked so well, even though I was only level 2 in Shiradi, I stayed for the xp durning our EE runs.
Think I am tier 3 now with the prism-rainbow line running and oh my! Almost every MM cast has a little something per cast. But now I am seeing 2 effects per cast of MM. And if you thought 2 sp for 150 points was good add in a 2d10 and a d100 more damage. I can’t wait until I can fire up double rainbow effects.
The question for me becomes, is there enough depth in the destiny beyond prism-rainbow-double rainbow?
I don’t think so but I can see redoing some twists for “fun” quests adding Prism Double Rainbow to Brace for Impact if I am willing to lower my DCs from twists and park in a caster destiny.
It will fall to how much fun double rainbow ends up being.
