Freelance Ramblings / Focus Degradation Chart
« on: March 03, 2011, 05:53:28 PM »
I meant to get this up here a little sooner, sorry!

With HoT and a level increase a lot of decaying foci comparisons arise.  It becomes important to know whether your old raid foci are better or worse than current expansion group foci, or whether your current expansion group foci are better than the foci in xyz tier of the raid content we are currently hitting.  For those who aren't exactly math wizards, this can be a daunting task.

An awesome necromancer over at the serverwide boards by the name of Solithan put together this downloadable document that you can plug your foci and spell level into to see how far the foci will have decayed.

I would advise everyone that uses foci to download this little nugget of gold (whether dmg foci, heal foci, det hast, bene haste, bene duration, etc etc)

Here is the link to the post on Necrotalk.

note: If you downloaded this before non-damage foci were in it (such as raid legs, group legs, raid det range, group det range, etc) the author has now added those in so you can re-download the file if you would like them.

Necromancer / Necro DPS

Largly, in this thread, I will just be pointing necros to some already created awesomesauce over at

Necros may have one of the simpler combos to creating their dps, but it is easily one of the most difficult to implement.

The first thread that all necros should read is: DPS tools - what you will need and never outgrow

The second thread that all necros should read is: Necro DPS - Spell Casting Order v2.0

Those two threads are absolutely gold.  Few classes in EQ have a community that is half as useful as the necromancer one.  Anyone not taking advantage of said community is seriously handicapping their game play.  There are countless other invaluable threads on basically every subject relevant to a Necromancer on that site (I know because I have started, posted, or read a high majority of them).

If you are truly serious about wanting to DPS at the top as a Necromancer, I highly suggest you also subscribe to necrotalk.  We give away all the ub3r 1337 secrets in the subscriber section  8-)

I will probably add to this a quick and dirty guide on how to use all the tools mentioned in the two threads above.

Happy hunting!
