    But the bow can replace the bloodcrimson one lots of healers are using, only reason I'm grinding for that stuff.

    The ratio of experience-spent to experience-returned is actually pretty solid (75-85% depending on grade) when you use a higher-grade Hiram item as a mat. So even if your item doesnt roll what you want, you always have the option of waiting until you find/make a lower-grade one that DOES have the stats you want, and then feeding it your old item to raise it super quickly.

    Also, for people who are intent on getting very specific rolls, I highly recommend looking into "arcane recycling." It works something like this:

    1) Find a Grand of your type with at least one stat you like.
    2) Your Grand + any Arcane + any Grand = ROLL, get a Rare at 87% exp
    3) Your 87% Rare + any Grand + any Grand = ROLL, get an Arcane

    4) didnt get the rolls you wanted? Now you have a spare Arcane. Return to step 1

    Works for 1H and 2H weapons, but i havent tried it for armors yet. This will of course slow you down vs people who are just raising their items with less-than-optimal-stats, but its the most efficient way i can see to get the maximum number of rolls per items found. So if "perfect roll" items are what you're all about, i'm thinkin' it'll be handy.

    Hope that helps!

    The droprate is fine considering this gear is on delphinad tier. I grinded for 10 hours and got 100 drops, without any loot buff. The problem is not the droprate but the mobs are being camped 24/7, if I had a free spot I could farm even more, but you gotta tag mobs and pvp, that slow your drop per hour.

    Good to know it's that high, I was expecting something similar to erenor which is less than 50%.

    Thanks for the roll tip, I'll try that if I fail to get 1 of the 2 option I want for my last stat. Still hoping RNG will be kind to me at the last min.

    I had a feeling something along those lines would work, but it's nice to see that it's so favorable.

    I just farmed for an hour with 80% loot buff and didn't get a single drop. Like everything that gets released in this game its just another disappointment that leaves you hating yourself for daring to hope that this time they'll do something good. I don't know why I bother.

    i farmed for around 4-6 hours. i got 70 haram gears, i got my first bow drop on the 65th haram.
    i only used 2 loot pots and bear. not in a war zone.
    you need 115 haram gears to get celestial 0% with bonus xp i got 9.5% bonus xp.
    im 10.5k gearscore melee and i bet mages can farm more efficiently than me.
    i got 40 silver crates and around 70 haram sooo they are more common than silver crates.

    I lost it at this point lmao. Do you realize that this is supposed to be catch up gear? People who farm these on fresh start are 3k GS and during that 4-6 hours they get 10 pieces.

    It's delphinad tier that's capped at celestial, that's pretty big difference. It's worse than the epic epherium that some people are running already day 1.

    You also can't temper it. Just another reason calling it delphinad tier isn't accurate.
