Quick question. Is Uthalam's Ring really worth getting? I figure for TP Raja's and Blitz win and for WS Raja's and an STR ring would be best. I'm kinda leaning more towards a Jalzahn's Ring for Cor.
not that i know what to wear these days, but i'll note that even before the level cap started going up, ulthalam's ring was for a) salvage onry, and b) lazy people who know the difference but don't care about the .5% DoT (random example number) you lose to the winning competitor ring, and c) people who don't know any better. it's nothing special out of assault. from what i'm hearing about the game these days, ACC is capped pretty much all the time nowadays (and if it weren't, there's better ACC rings than 4ACC+4ATT anyway.
in short, no, it's not a very good ring. again, i wore it because i was (a) and (b) above for awhile, and i was a monk.
edit: if it's not clear (which it probably isn't), in most cases these days, "winning competitor" should be well ahead of ulthalam ring. eg capped ACC situations, it loses to more rings than you can probably name off the top of your head, and by a fair amount (i mean, if ACC is capped, the chances are good that going from ulthalam to better-competitor-item is a bigger increase in damage than going from nothing at all to ulthalam).
further edit: p.s. if i could talk to myself from the future when i was picking rings, i'd have picked the MACC ring for BRD. Edited, Dec 16th 2010 5:06am by milich
