Tier 4 2-piece Set Bonus

Postby Prepared » Wed Jul 25, 2007 2:27 pm

Thanks to Blizzard's history of vague tooltips - and I was heading out the door, so I can't test this myself - but... does the two-piece set bonus give the bonus damage to just the Seal damage, or also to the Judgment of those same Seals?

It's more or less for theorycrafting purposes.

From what I have seen, it's just the seal's damage.

From blizzard history we also know that they have crap set bonus designs and when you get a really good one it will one be lost due to better gear, They should get rid of them and boost gear stats or make them choosable or something from a pool of different ones.

Man what is up with this. Lore gets a DKPSig and now it's the in thing? :P
Just kidding

Pretty sure it's just the seal's damage, not the judgment as well. I'll try to keep an eye on the numbers though.

I bet a lot of people didn't know the URL until now.

I used to use that other one, but it seems like every other week I need to remake it. F that. :P

On-topic: That sucks. I'd almost rather switch it with the Retribution set bonus for +15% to JotC damage. If that's calculated after my Libram of Zeal, and Imp. JotC (which I have), it'd be hot.

It's just a coincidence, I definitely haven't used my powers of mind control (which I definitely don't have, by the way) to coerce the entire Maintankadin community into slowly replicating my every action until I have an unstoppable, unkillable army of Paladin tanks with which I can control the western world.

Yep, definitely just a coincidence, not that other thing.

Lies! You're mobilizing your forces before the gathering storm. It has been foreseen.

I dunno Flolah, I like the 10% to seal bonus. With Reckoning up and an extra 10% tacked onto my seal procs, that's a nice boost to threat. I calculated it out exactly once, but I lost it...

Plus, you don't always judge Crusader on a boss. If you've got a threat lead, you can use Wisdom and give the mages a chance to catch up - and if you do, the Crusader bonus goes out the window. A ret paladin is almost always going to judge Crusader for the crit bonus though.

I rarely, rarely switch to Wisdom, really. No fight has me so mana-starved I can't pop a mana potion (Void Reaver comes to mind) and unless I'm being hit, I don't generate enough threat with Wisdom up on him to be able to keep up with our two Druids and the Warrior.

I do believe there should be some kind of option, but I can picture that mechanic being very clunky and buggy.
