errata


Addendum to the previous post: it would appear that the Elixir of Empowerment will actually be classified as a 'guardian' elixir? I'm not sure I follow the reasoning behind that since it's only purpose is to help you do more damage, but I'll take it if that's the case.

--------------------------

Ordinarily, something like this wouldn't warrant attention, but it was particularly ridiculous. A level 19 dwarf asking me for gold cited needing money to buy a tabard. But the thing was... he was wearing a tabard at the time. I pointed this out to him and he proceeded to take it off before my very eyes and insist that he wasn't.


Sheesh people. ;)

LOL!! That's screwed up so badly.

I've been looking for something like the Elixir of Empowerment since I started reading the strats for Kara.

The way I'll be using it, and perhaps Blizz was thinking the same thing when they classified it as a Guardian Elixir, would be to make up for a +spell penetration gear deficiency. That stat can help (a lot) with my mind controls breaking early in, say, Botanica.

As a healer I don't gear for either +hit or +penetration, and it definitely shows when I'm required to bust out the cc abilities. An elixir is just the sort of thing I can use in those situations, rather than having to remember to bring along my DPS (ha!) set.

I wish I knew of something that affected +hit though - I've read that that's the stat to stack when you're talking about Holy spells like, oh, shackles on Moroes. What I wouldn't give for a little more reliability on those. :)

Yeah, spell hit is what determines if something is going to resist your Shackle.

It goes something like this...
Monster level
Same as yours = 4% chance to miss/reisist
1 level higher = 5% chance to miss/resist
2 levels higher = 6% chance to miss/resist
3 levels higher = 17% chance to miss/resist
4 or more levels higher = just forget about it
