I got it, and am happy with it for the stats/slow proc. Swapping in 2 weapons for Swarmcaller is annoying.

If you can get the ToV 2h though, I would just skip the epic entirely for an easy swap with Swarmcaller.
Which tov 2hander is being referenced here?

Yea I didn’t level with my EC. I expect with it that would have been pretty fun.

I’ve said this before but swapping between slow setups is less of a dps loss for SW than it is for 2h. You are adding utility to a utility class with it. Absolutely nothing wrong with a swarmcaller though. I considered getting another today after just getting a Cek 2h.

2h Slow setup:
DW tash stick(s) (very low dps, not always needed)
Swap to Swarmcaller (low dps, two clicks)
Swap to dps weapon (one click)

DW slow setup:
DW or just primary tash stick (very low or just low dps)
Switch main to EC for slow (medium dps)
Switch main to DPS (one click)
Or…switch to BFG whenever and disc (HIGH dps)

If you are just one-clicking the DW gives more flexibility. If you are quick unlike me it’s not as horrid of a loss, just annoying.

DW setups also give some decent stats for pulling or tanking. Both epics is almost 200hps I recall. Swarm or most 2h’s are 0-50’ish.

Oh that is pretty tasty, yeah! What is an easily attainable haste for ranger when not using offhand/swiftwind?

Modern raids maybe Yeli neck, Zlex or Dagarn belt, Yeli gaunts.

You can cap with a spiked seahorse and shiss. Leaving 25attack off the table though. The 2h is pretty good. I was using SCHW’s to finish up the raid and it was keeping up on with normal geared people at 88% haste.

Meljeldin, Bane of Giants?

That dropped for the guild last night.

Maybe in 5 years I could get it. If I played everyday.

If you have access to the sky cloak then CoF or Seahorse Belt will work fine. You will already be at 84% haste with that setup, and after 34% you only get half of the benefit of additional haste. The first 34% reduces the delay by half of the possible reduction, and the other 66% reduces the other half. For example, a weapon with 40 delay is reduced to 30 delay with 34% haste. 100% haste reduces the delay to 20.

Good info thanks.

Sub-question: BFG sounds fun. I'm concerned they may not be planks left on the server.

How must-have is a BFG for a Ranger?

It's only way to achieve rogue dps, if that is your goal. Ranger still has utility without, but part of their job is killing in raids.

If they merge green more will be available. There are a few now on blue and they are like 120-150k I think. I got mine for 60k a couple years ago.

Itís really just more utility. As a normal weapon if you keep making and feeding it Tolan arrows it performs like a 11/18-12/18 seemingly if stuff isnít rooted or fleeing. You get double damage and crits. On disc itís basically double-damage for 2 mins (10-12k or so). A long fight much of that advantage disappears.

We did a Faydedar the other say. It was another quick fight (1.5mins). With shiss, wolf form, and 8dmg arrows I did 107dps. A top tier rogue did 157 lol. But I expect I still did about twice what the average ranger would have. Or 30% more than a ToV geared one.

Itís really just more fun. And they donít drop so Iíd rather spend the plat on that MQ than a Earthcaller. You will definitely get one of those if you keep at it! Itís a time locked server.
