Ritual or Star Mother on priest


#1

I didn’t realize how similar Ritual Robe and Star Mother are until a couple minutes ago. I’ve been farming Ritual for my priest, but I just got Star Mother and I’m really not sure which one is better. I feel like surprisingly Star Mother prevails. When using Star Mother over Ritual you lose 8 wis but gain 3 def and 15 mp. Which one would you use on priest? Maybe neither and you prefer a different robe?


#2

I would go for the star mother. 8 wis increase the heal of most tomes by <15hp which is just bad.

Soulless or anointed also should also be good

Star Mom’s the better option for a more balanced playstyle.

If Tomes ever get a more substantial increase-per-wis, then Ritual might beecome a more interesting option (especially with IC/OoC)


#5

I’d only use ritual with sorc or with a cult set necro, the extra wis isn’t ever really worth the hit to the other stats you’d get from other robes.


#6

If you vote other please reply and specify which robe. I’d love to know!


#7

What is IC and OoC?


#8

It is an upcoming mechanism to balance gameplay.

If you get hit that deals 15 or more damage, your pet ability cooldown increases by 3 seconds. In Combat mode will last 7 seconds.

OoC means after that 7 seconds, your pet’s abilities cooldown returns to normal.

Aside from Sakura’s short explanation, you can read the full post here, since there’s a LOT of additional changes tied to various aspects of it.
iirc they’ll likely bee releasing it in parts - so there’ll bee seperate updates for the actual system and, say, the DPS changes.

I’d say use Ritual unless you have a Sorcerer with the Scepter of Devastation. You’d be better off using the star on other classes because ritual (and wismod) is basically useless on staff classes.


#11

I’d just run star mother personally theyre both really good though


#12

I voted ‘other’:

If you are worried you might die even despite priest’s ability, I’d choose Soulless for the +60HP. :heart:
If you are annoyed at priest being slow or speedy with no inbetween, I choose Water Robe for the +6SPD. :running_man:
If you feel you are INVINCIBLE on the heal machine known as priest, choose Alien Matrix for the 7% fame. :sunglasses:

Perhaps if you want even more heals there’s a case to use Ritual, but because it has more direct effect on sorcerer/necro/mystic I’d save it for one of those. Probably that is a pet-dependent decision, because I feel like I never run out of MP on priest for how much I need to heal (90/90 pet). Maybe if going Prot-bananas Ritual can be a good pairing to help Prot? I don’t play like that on priest though so can’t comment.

StarMo is certainly fine as an all-round robe, and I would happily use it in most situations. You’re right they’re quite similar aren’t they. Of course what ring you choose affects it too; it’s always good to combine the stats and view the robe+ring as an ensemble.

Tlatoani’s shroud, for that insane mp boost and juicy 10 WIS increase, in exchange for fragility. But that’s not a problem for priest, isn’t it? Now I would have an actual reason to be afraid of things as priests, instead of only watching out for shotguns. In fact, because of that high survivability I get too much confident about it and thats when I die.
