I want to know what tribute benefits everyone uses if any1 uses them right now I got
Arm of Power (str overcap)
Body of Divinity (sta overcap)
Bulwark of Honor (AC)
Strength of Body (HP)
Symphony of the Rabbit (agi overcap)

Trophies
Trophy of Dreams (agi overcap and AC)
Trophy of Sleep (HP, End, and AC)
Trophy of the House (str overcap)
Trophy of the Rooms (sta overcap)

I also got the Idol of Severilous and Idol of Talendor which are on another account.

I don't like the heroics lines because they use up to many points but I want to make the best use of it all.

If you're talking about wasting tribute points, ditch str/sta

Arm of Power Tier 10 (Str overcap)
Arm of Power II Tier 1 (Str Overcap)
Arm of the Hero Tier 9 (+18 HStr)
Bulkwork of Honor Tier 10 (Increased AC)
Eyes of the Hunter Tier 8 (Accuracy increase, this is parseable increase to DPS... search the forums for my posts)

Total cost 1281 per 10mins

I use Familiar of the emerald Jungle since I have had shitty luck getting Naggy...



For Trophies I use

Essence of Talendor Tier 9 (45AC 150HPS)
Essence of the Fallen Tier 4 (45 AC 150HPS 20 Corruption)
Trophy of Dreams Tier 5 (30AC +18 to Agi cap)
Trophy of Sleep Tier 5 (30AC 150HPS/END)

251 cost per 10 mins

Obviously my focus is dmg and AC overall!

slightly better one Rten if you don't want to wait for naggy: http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=79027

And I only mentioned str/sta being a waste if you're worried about points. The benefits are there but miniscule (less than the others).

Working on getting Trophy of Sleep or winning the lottery with LoN free cards. I don't give them real money for that.

I'm curious why you don't run Fury of Combat. Did you parse no benefit from it? It should increase your flurry rate in theory. I remember your parses for Eyes of the Hunter which made me put it into my lineup. I don't remember any parse for Fury, however.

Fury of Combat is parsed in both these threads. It does help.

@Archus, I have a memory of an article or conversation that explained that there was no benefit to Fury of Combat... which is probably a pretty lame reason to include or exclude anything. I will try an knock out a parse replacing bulkwork of honor... as it should have 0 impact on dps. If anyone else finds/does a parse first, please let us know... as I would be interested in finding out for sure. And yes if it is parseable DPS increase I would drop Bulkwork for it.

Thanks for the links and parses. Confirmed what I was already pretty sure of.

I parsed Fury of Combat last year, forget where my post was though. It does increase 2 flurrys per minute or around there.

Total Flurries 15935 or 32.8 per minute



Notes: I use the Charm which is affected by the number of guildies in the zone, so during the parse it is possible that my HStr varied by as much +5. This would of course also affect atk… but over all I do not see it having much real impact (if avg hit changes that would be a sign that it was a cusp number that did matter).

Conclusions:
The Fury of Combat at rank 3 added 4 flurries per minute which translated to 171DPS or for me ~1.4% damage increase. Which for a few pp, is actually more of a gain than I was expecting. So I have swapped it in...

And I did not use any of the clicky dps increases or have raid buffs during these parses, but I do not expect that would change the % gain in any case.
