Re: Spirit Plane of Bhaal

I'm against changing ALL the warrior gear in SPoB to be TANK gear. Not every warrior chooses to wear all mage gear all the time. On Dlur I generally run around with somewhere between 53 and 57 damroll with perm haste and only wear HP rings and I tank just fine (even when I'm burning on shield thanks...

Re: Icecrag Adjustments

You forgot possibility of rareload blued steel pauldron loading on ruin/havoc fight. I can't remember stats on it as there are so few of them in the game, but i think it's borderline between Tier1/Tier2 hitter gear. Still not worth fighting Ruin/Havoc for though really. But yeah really I think the u...
