Re: Healing items like Khanjari

Bottom line.

Does Jari have a healing effect? Yes

Is that healing effect overpowered? No

Why? Because it doesn't change anything.

Can I get a reason as to why Jari heals too much? I don't really see that, it just says, Jari heals too much make it lower... but no explanation. On the other thread you said that Jari negated need for healer, based on what? Are you referring specifically to in zone? In twinking? Both?

Jari in no way negates the need for a healer. Jari in no way designates what I can or cannot kill as a rogue. Jari is a useful tool, but the Rogue/Ele combo is going to be sick because of the spells and sneakiness as long as both players are skilled. Remember one key thing, put whatever gear you wan...
