Is there no lvl 60 version of this item?
For those that don't know, this is a new WSG reward that requires friendly. Purchase price is 3.5g
Not sure but I think you're approaching it wrong. Since vulnerability bonus on damage would add a percent of your damage (based on how negative the resistance actually is) it means that if you already have a lot of +damage this is a valid option. In the case of the new AV ring with a similar equip bonus: A percentage of all the damage added as vulnerability bonus is more than likely to be more than the +33 damage from the ring of spellpower. If it's not, that target had resistances - and this could have made a difference between a (partial) resist / hit. As for these trinkets, you can wear two (one for 10, and one for 20), but I rather wear my ToEP / ZHC combo.
There is a L60 version, but they haven't added it yet. It was listed on Test - reduces by 30.
With this & curse of elements on any non-flame mob in MC, I can pyroblast for 2000-2600.
Anyone doubts that, here's a screeny of my second highest Magmadar damage. I missed screenying the highest.
You can purchase the level 40 and level 20 trinkets and equip them both for a total of -30 to magical resistances on a target.
Extremely useful for the lock on banish duty in MC since they've recently buffed elemental/reaver resists in the lava packs (many more partial resists since 1.9)
I just did WSG for as long as it took to get this, so in case you want to, here's what it took to get from nuetral to friendly.
All of these numbers for around level 40, haven't done enough to see if anything changes as you level.
Every flag captured is 14rep, 3 captures and you win the match. Turning in the reward for winning is 50 more rep, if you lose you get 1/3 of the reward, so about 17rep.
max: 92, min 17. median 55.
Depends greatly on your sever if you faction will win all the time, or if you will never even get 1 flag, but assuming you lose as much as you win, and that games end early often enough, you will need 50 games. Best possible case would be 32games, worst would be 150, but you can do better then that :)
Note you'll also be getting honor for this, and you should easily get rank 3, which means a discount on pretty much everything. That alone makes this grinding worth it.
It only reduces the mobs resistance for your spells. Not your groups.
It DOES work in PvP and PvE
Banish @ MC. I rest my case.
It's stupid but when a spell misses it actually says "resist" in white. When a spell is actually resisted it says "resist" in yellow.
Copying from somewhere:
"For non-binary spells, the 'to hit calculation' and the 'resist calculation' are entirely separate. Misses show up as white resists, while resists show up as yellow. No amount of +% to hit gear will change your yellow resist chance, and no amount of spell penetration will change your white resist chance."
In other words this item reduces your target's magic resistance to all types of spells by 20 (cannot be less than 0 though). It DOES NOT increase your damage done by spells. It decreases the chance of your spells being partially resisted, and hence increases the chance of your spells doing maximum damage. It also decreases the chance of a complete "yellow resist".
It DOES NOT decrease the chance of a complete "white resist", which is 4% when fighting a mob or player of the same level.
(Lev 20) 174 Honor + 30 WSG Marks
(Lev 40) 380 Honor + 30 WSG Marks
Can I have 2 of these hell good trinkets at the same time?
Ya, it is unique, but you can wield the level 20 version at the same time. Just not two of the level 40.
Will there ever be a lvl 60 version of this? Like 10 stam and -25 spellresi?
Anyone know if this reduces resistances below 0? If so, that would be super imba!
Looks like I'll have to be doing more wsg.
again, it takes friendly reputation to get this.
This is a really good trinket at 60 as a warlock. For PvP I would take this over Eye of the Beast simply because most of my time is spent DoTing people up and running from masses of rogues. Most people probably have a minor amount of SR, and all undead have 10 SR, so it is definatly better than Eye of the Beast for PvP. For PvE, I'm going to have to test it out with a DPS meter. 2% crit is really good for MC and AQ, especially since I can get chain shadowbolts off. Don't know about ZG though, since the mobs there die so damn quick.
What rep level is required for this one?
As of 1.9, players cannot reduce target resistances below zero. However, at level 60, most players have at least some resistances to magic, so this would be a huge potential boost to damage spells, especially for mages who rely on fire and face PvE-geared opponents. Reducing a target's resistance from 20 to 0 is equivalent to a 5% boost in damage over a long period of time. (4 resistance = 1% damage mitigation. No I don't have the math to show you.)
The reason they changed it was ostensibly because Warlocks were using Curse of Shadows/Elements to obtain negative resistances on targets, which very rarely lead to monster crits.
This item is too strong for a lvl 40 trinket...
its sold from the warsong gulch faction vendors. there are two different ones: a level 40 and a level 20 one. the level 20 one has +4 stamina and -10 resistances. it takes friendly reputation to get.
i couldn't actually buy this one, only the level 20 one. when i tried to buy this one it showed up as a question mark in my inventory. 3g60s for a question mark, woo hoo.
