Trinket Trouble

Postby Celles » Fri Oct 31, 2008 7:07 pm

Alright. I picked up Figurine of the Colossus last night and I'm not sure if I should use it over my other trinkets for tanking. Any advice and why?

My other 2 trinkets are Argussian Compass - which is know is sort of rubbish but the stamina on that thing seems invaluable - and Dabiri's Enigma - the defense of which is pushing me to 500, so the loss of the defense hurts but can be made up with +Def gems.

That trinket nowadays is purely an (op) farming trinket.

Keep it for the future, but it's not really worth using while tanking anymore (used to be great to reach uncrushabilty)

Depending on your gear level it's a great aoe pull trinket. I equip and use it every time I do heroic MrT and pull the whole room before the second boss. Considering the other two trinkets you linked I'd use it over the Compass because unless the rest of your gear is BT or higher you will need the block value. Although crushings were removed from boss level mobs unless you're under the level cap, a block is still better than a hit.

It's the heal on block use effect of the figurine that is valuable nowadays. (Before 3.0, the on equip BR was nice for the big contribution it made to your 102.4%). As has been said, nice for insane bursts of AOE tanking but situational.

By contrast, Dabiri's engima's on equip defence is very helpful after 3.0 to keep uncrittable. If you are at 102.4%, however, it's on use feature gives you nothing (as extra blocks are the next thing to fall off the attack table after hits), so you may find better defence trinkets (the one from SL, for example, or even the regal protectorate).
