    That's actually the argument for full-timing Eos. I've tried it out, and I end up spending almost all of my time in CS DPSing, dropping out only on the bigger hits to toss out a lustrate or something.

    The argument I've seen used is that the extra dps from staying in CS outweighs the 50% uptime of 3% haste.

    At least someone can read.

    I don't have any gold stars, sorry.

    Eos saved my ass in A3S final phase. Sometimes you have to make deals with the devil.

    So when did Whispering Dawn become interruptible without you losing it?

    Eg. Moving pet midcast used to eat it.

    I also noticed this running expert roulette when Eos get pushed back midcast, I can cast it again.

    Oh neat, only took 2 years too.

    So do people run Melds for Alexander Savage? I have been trying to find a definitive answer and people are like 50/50, some like to use melds some don't. It seems it is more personal preference, or does it depend on your other Healer?

  10. #90

    I use 3 accuracy melded accesories for savage.

    Which pieces do you use out of interest and other than the 3 Accuracy what else did you meld, I assume Crit?

  12. #92

    I use neck, bracelet and ring, and yes, accuracy/crit.

    I do the same thing as Octo, except I have vitality on one of the pieces. Same slots, as well. I also use Grilled Sweetfish for more accuracy.

    Has anyone found any good uses for Dissipation? I legit forgot I even had a level 60 skill for the longest time. I've had many arguments recently about whether or not it's a good skill.

    I feel like any situation where I find myself needing Lustrates, Indoms, or Soil is not a situation where I want to sacrifice having a Fairy for 30 seconds. 20% healing potency is nice but the fairy is much preferred. The only thing I can come up with is using it for Energy Drains, which is probably a small DPS increase in a situation where you absolutely don't need fairy heals for 30 seconds. 2 of the Energy Drain MP restores pretty much cover the fairy cost at least.

    Just curious if anyone uses it at any point, maybe a specific Savage phase?

    Can you cancel the buff to recast your fairy?

    Its useful for burst phases or where there is downtime. Like before the Oppressors jump you can dissipate to spam 3 more energy drains and you'll have fairy back up before they land.

    I also use it at the start after a wipe to get stacks instead of using aetherflow. That saves some time so you can spam those charges first then use aetherflow to get them back instead of waiting 1 min for the CD.

    There are other situations but its very situational. There were alot of times I knew if I had an extra lustrate or 2, it would have prevented a full wipe.

    When Savage was new, I used it on Faust during the last 10% or so. Not necessary now. Maybe if your co-healer can solo-heal for a while, for dps... but other than that, only thing I can think of is anything similar to Faust where you're healing a shitton of damage in a short period after which you don't need to heal (wipe or win, in faust's case) at all.

  19. #99

    I don't use it for the healing boost; I use it for if I want 3 more stacks of aetherflow RIGHT NOW (either for more dps with energy drain, or more lustrates needed for immediate heals)

    I use it during a planned fairy switch in A4S. I kill Selene on the third leg with disappation and continue to DPS using the stacks. By the time mortal revolution casts dissipation wears, and I can swift cast Eos for leg 4+.
