    Yeah, that is a really good point about getting enough Magicka back with the resto staff alone. When the stuff hits the fan, I am spending most of my time on my resto bar anyway and would barely have time to get off a heavy attack with my destro stave.

    I am looking forward to the day (some day) when RNGeesus will bless me with two decent swords so I can actually try dual wielding. In the meantime, Destro staff is fun when you have a really good group that needs minimal healing and we are basically just another dps. Then again, when I have a really good group and we are just running a random for the daily or a pledge, I pretty much just sit back, grab a sandwich and let them carry me through it haha!

    Thanks for the updates and I love dinking around with the builds.

    One day I just happen to be doing normal WGT and I told someone in the random pug that I was looking for an SPC sword. The group laughed like I was never gonna get one, and on that same run the tank got the drop! Everyone flipped shit. It was truly the luckiest drop ever!

    As for the IA sword, those are difficult but more common since you have 12 people in group and practically no one wants that item anymore. I advise running trials on Vet if you can because the shit sets drop less and IA/VO have increased drop rates.

    A few additional questions:

    – Does the heal from Funnel Health only affect one single person at a time, randomly?

    – How vital would you say the Troll King set is? I ask this mostly for aesthetic reasons because the single shoulder pad look drives me nuts. xP

    – What kind of DPS numbers should I be aiming for?

    Thanks!

    1. Yes, it always affects you but also affects only one additional person. As far as i can tell it is indeed totally random which is why it is necessary to spam it.

    2. The Troll King is incredibly necessary as it provides a safety net for anytime anyone gets struck really hard. I would not go without it, but it completely acceptable to not use it. You will just kinda be handicapping yourself a bit from your full potential if not using it. To be honest, I truly hate the look of my character which is why i wear a costume and hide my helmet 24/7.

    3. Of course you want those numbers as high as possible. My funnel health is consistenly critting between 13k and 15k, but I’m pretty sure I will be getting that up to 16k here pretty soon.

    Are there ways to get costumes other than the few options in the Crown Store?

    How are you getting so high on FH?? Mine hits for 4k and a 7.1k crit with a 69.3% crit score on my character. I’m only averaging about 9k DPS total during single target fights (way higher for AoE fights).

    edit: 4.9k and 8.3k with Sap Essence buff and Combat Prayer buff. But still, nowhere near your numbers! I’m CP307 with CPs in the suggested trees.

    Costumes can be acquired through achievements. Look at your costumes section to see what achievement unlocks which costume. Personally, I wear the DB costume :D

    My CP is maxed out which helps a lot. Most of it has to do with my gear though. I have in the guide what I currently run and that is getting me up that high. My highest FH can hit for 16K but that is with buffs Major Sorcery, Combat Prayer, Aggressive War horn, SPC and debuffs on boss IA Major Vulnerability, and Soul Harvest (but I don’t normally use this ulti even if I have it available).

    Additionally, The passive from Mages Guild and Undaunted boost your magicka like crazy! Remember 5 light, 1 med, 1 heavy is ungodly beneficial.

    Your dps and heals are based in these stats in this order: Spell Damage, Spell Crit, Max Magicka.

    Aim to get your spell damage and Max Mag as high as possible. Spell crit should be No more than about 68% otherwise you will receive diminishing returns. All of these things also benefit healing as well.

    Keep the questions coming :D I’m happy to help.
