as an LR mage
I dont know what to think. At first , when I saw the nice stats on an UNDEFEATABLE FAUN +8, I thought these NEW staffs would be bomb. It gave glacier dmg too to my 2nd element(sick) along with higher AP and ELE as other top staffs.
BUT the new staffs are hard to get a hold of at the start of the expansion, let alone upgrading them right away to +8
EDIT: I just noticed the -70 AC, pretty gay imo.
I think that LR mages with Chaotic+8's, Exceptional Elixir+8's, and Elysium+8's will still be fine after the expansion. Im still curious whether the RONS armor is better than a complete8 set. Is there any new uniques btw(MAGE UNIQUES)
