Yea for plunkquest no way Swiftwind beats the 56 damage bonus instead of 11. I donít know the effect of the attack but itís not 45 extra per hit.

Quick bows are better with a 2h too but the number of arrows you need to last a disc let alone a long raid fight are insane. I only bow down Lucan with my Dagarn since heís has low hps and almost every hit is a damage bonus one.

Man, itís generally not great for anything but small groups and soloing, but in that instance, itís leaps and bounds better than Swarmcaller/Wurmslayer. Itís damage is a good deal better than Wurmy, and you donít have to worry about an additional haste item when using a Swarmcaller. Not to mention the attack on the Swiftwind just compounds how much better it is not having to take it off just for a slow proc.

I canít even explain how much easier and more fun soloing got once I snagged my Earthcaller. Plus it looks cool as hell.

I had earthcaller and still used sboz from 46-60, the dps out weighed the random procs on just normal exp grinding, it only shines really on low man content where ya have no other slow, ie: juggs duo with a cleric .

Or almost every Aary where 15 seconds into the encounter raid leaders are asking for people to try and slow proc it. Or pretanking Klandi with WS.

There are actually a lot of raid fights that a ranger can help with a proc. Every proc resist met with a jolt keeps you pretty aggro neutral.

Swarmcaller is for the poor, Earthcaller is for the ballers. If ya don’t got it, you’re prob mad about it. Just sayin

You have raid full of DSM shamans if they can't do the aary slow , rangers should be bopping it.

Donít agree at all. I had a SBoZ as well while leveling mine, and the Earthcaller cut down my downtime so much. Solo grinding became so much easier and more efficient.

proc is too random for me, its great when you need a slow, but just grinding if you proc at 10% the mob would of already been dead with a sboz, depends on what ya fight i guess. its just niche for me, i use it when its needed but thats pretty rare.

I mean itís definitely all about RNG. But I found over the course of an hours solo grinding session I would get far more kills in with the epic. Itís not a make or break item, but for me, it made grinding way more efficient. I pretty much exclusively soloíd to 60 and it just made things so much faster for me. Different strokes I guess.
