Good Synergy gear for Paladins?Follow

So far, from a PLD perspective, this new system is pretty disappointing. Concordia and other etchable swords offer nothing over Joyeuse, Koenig Shield can only be etched with very situational "versus" defenses, etc. I saw a Rosenbogen with +6 Sword WS Accuracy, which could be nice for Vorpal, though at this point I almost never use that WS in endgame situations... anyone found anything worth going after, whether old gear etched or new armor sets, for reasons beyond looks?

I'd say you pretty much summed it up. Only other things to look at is some limited use ebon/ebur/furia gear. I haven't personaly pieced together all the possibilites, but it does look like it's worth the money/effort to me anyway.

I have been trying for weeks to figure out something thats worth a **** for pld, and i just cant find much, i have some various vs mob + def etched items, but thats pretty fail to begin with. I am hoping to get ahold of some of the ninjitsu + enmity evo's to see if i can plug them in on certain pieces to give me a slight boost when casting ichi/ni as pld. But i am not sure they would even work on those.

I'm pretty sure it'd "work", but you don't have much base enmity to start with on those spells. Only things I've see at all worth looking at for evoliths are:

Divine Magic Recast -x%

and

Light Enhancing Magic Recast -x%

No idea if there's something worth putting these on, however.

If the Darksteel Harness or the Ebon/Furria/Whatever sets can be etched so that they would take the Light Based Enhancing Recast -% evoliths, I think I could see an argument there for them. Being able to shave off a few seconds from Stoneskin would be great for PLD/RDM. The others aren't nearly as crucial, but it wouldn't hurt. I currently put -PDT% anywhere I don't have

Does anyone know if this affects the casting time like Fast Cast does or is it specifically recast? The former would be awesome, the latter would mostly help with Stoneskin (and would most likely be worth it).

The other consideration is if we can get these on good strong +MIND pieces so we both boost Stoneskin AND lower recast at the same time.

Ok, was bored and this got me thinking, so here's what I've come up with:

Ebur Galea (head) with -4% Recast of you choice

Ebur Haubert with -5% Recast of your choice

Ebur hands/legs/feet with -3ish% Recast of your choice (can't remember the max for these)

Concordia with -3-4% Recast of your choice

Don't know of any other gear that can hold these evoliths atm. Also, keep in mind that Ebur can hold the largest evoliths of this type. Furia can also hold them, but smaller caps.

Keep in mind, the lowest you can get your recast timer is 50% so when you account for your base haste + haste via spell, it might not necessarily be worth stacking -recast. As is i generally have a 22 recast on Flash/NI whem tanking and i am not touching haste cap. Not to mention, if youre trying to recast stoneskin every 15 secs.... with a casting time of 10 secs, youre burning a **** of alot of time.

Eh, it only happens occasionally (usually while soloing AQ and I rush into it a little without fully buffing). Since I'm soloing, usually the only haste I have is what gear I have, so having recast pieces would help.

It was more of a "something we can really get out of synergy" rather than a "I must have this piece."
