Ranger Essence Spends

Recommended Posts

I've only been playing about a month and my Ranger has now hit the fun of level 66.  What sort of direction should I be thinking with Essence?

I think at least a point in Soul-Busting Arrow it's a must,  as you are still in leveling process you don't have many CP yet and essence cores can be rather pricey over +4, i would put 2 or 3 lv in Stunning shot  and the rest in Precision and Power.

at higher lvl would be a good idea to improve your Breath of Nature to Blessing of Nature, as the HP per CP  ratio is better than investing into Health, and you get 10% increase in the heals received inlcuding serums.

For pvp the godstone supression passive is really useful, and ofcourse reaching to 180 CP to unlock Mau Blessing would be great.

Mau Blessing is very cool. http://aioncodex.com/us/skill/4881/

Until we have more Essence, I'd say put it all in Precision. That will make every skill a little better.

Once we have more to play with, we can experiment with different setups for free.

I tried:

  1. Stacking Precision.
  2. Stacking Power.
  3. Power/Precision combo.
  4. Precision/HP combo.
  5. Precision/HP/Power combo.

and

  1. Stack Essence into 2 or 3 skills.
  2. Spread the Essence over as many skills as I can.

Currently I put no Essence in the "Enhance Character" tab at all. All Essence is in the Archdaeva/Daeva Skills tabs.

  1. Putting 3 Essence into Power will give us the same benefit of socketting into our gear one +3 Power Manastone, i.e. garbage.
  2. Putting 9 Essence into Power will give us the same benefit of socketting into our gear three +3 Power Manastones, i.e. garbage x 3.
  3. Putting 20 Essence into Power will give us the same benefit of socketting two +10 Manastones. (sounds good, I guess; however,)
  4. Essence has diminishing returns; each time we add 10 Essence we get less then the previous 10; the more we stack, the less we get. 
  5. 6 slots x 5 gear pieces + 12 slots from fused bow = 42 Manastone slots.
  6. Putting Essence into the "Enhance Character" tab is like getting a few additional Manastone slots. (from 42 slots to 43, 44, or 45.) It's not a big deal.

Spreading my Essence out over as many skills as I can works best for me.

Thanks for the Insight MayBlue.  I've tried a few ideas but nothing really works.  So may just go the same as you and dump it into Precision.
