Paladins, I have a question. Is it hard to figure out which classes would like which of your magical buffs? After my priest had the following scenario last night, I was wondering this and was all angry and going to write up a learn2play post, but instead have decided to post perhaps a guide on who wants which buffs, and in which order. Well at least if I was a paladin which order I’d give the buffs. I’m no expert on all the classes, but hey, at least my guide won’t have you giving might to a priest.
Okay, first let’s review which buffs are available:
- Blessing of Kings – Grants 10% bonus to all primary stats (i.e. strength, stamina, intellect, etc.).
- Blessing of Wisdom – Grants XX mana per 5 seconds.
- Blessing of Might – Grants XX attack power.
- Blessing of Sanctuary – Reduces all damage taken by 3% and increases stamina by 10%. Also when the target blocks, parries, or dodges a melee attack they gain 2% of maximum displayed mana.
Okay, so now that we’ve reviewed the blessings at hand, let’s talk about what this means and how we should use them. Oh incase you didn’t figure out the XX is a variable depending on the rank of the blessing. Most blessings last for 10 minutes, the greater blessings last for 30.
In order to assist you I have made a handy chart, feel free to print this and keep it next to your computer. This is how I see it. Of course I may stand to be corrected, but of the classes I’ve played, which is nearly all of them, this is what I would think. Please feel free to comment on anything you think is more important. This chart is applicable for 5-man dungeons.
