Hi folks,

as I am just getting back into the swing of things I wanted to ask before I go deconning:

Is a lvl 75 Third Age LI always the superior of any lvl 65 (or even 60) second or first age?  And if so, can anyone clarify what the advantage to the TA is, other than spendable points (I assume those are higher)

I am immediately most interested in this as it relates to LM - in the past, the class item for an LM might have been superior at lvl 59/60 of, say, a First Age, vs a lvl 65 Third Age, whereas weapon DPS normally mandated moving to the highest level available, regardless of Age, for weapon-wielding DPS classes

hope that makes sense - thanks a bunch

My understanding is that for most Class LIs a Lv75 3rd Age is better. The exceptions are Burglar Tools and Champion Runes, where Lv65 1st and 2nd Ages are better by virtue of there being more legacy points to spend with the same mathematical values in legacies. The only drawback of Lv65 burg tools and champ runes is that one cannot equip Lv70+ relics on them.

Hey Leth,

Good question. I need to find the table, but for DPS (including LM) all 3rd Age 75 >1st Age 65.

For tactical classes, the tactical damage rating is now a flat increase. It is 2.5% (cannot recall which) per rank and there is no more DR. I believe a 1at Age 65 goes to like rank 22? while a 3rd age starts at 27.4 and goes to 43.4. A fully maxed 3rd age will do ~21% more damage than a level 65 FA. A second age 75 does 11% more damage than a 3rd age and a 1st age 75 is about 6% higher than a 2nd age 75.

The rating numbers on legacies are higher too (but not the cool-down, %s, and range legacy modifiers).

As for outgoing healing, it is even more impressive than damage on the new rating scales. Therefore, a 3rd age LM book for raids, is a good idea.

Finally, relics. The Extraordinary Relics are worth a 65+ although T7 probabaly are not worth it over 65 Extraordinary for Shard cost

Therefore, there are a couple reasons you would not get a 3rd Age.
1) LM DPS BOOK - since you get statics on this and you don't rank up the outgoing healing on it, the 65 FA is better here

2) Champ/Burg Runes/Tools - due to points and that the incoming healing is not updated. It's to be fixed I believe, a FA 65 is good hear or even a 65 SA.
