Thx for the updates guys - should now be reflected in the initial post. Check it out! And pay attention to the number of players as well as the roles + virtues! We are getting there awfully fast. We are 12 lvl65 at the moment which can make out a good raid. Of course a Cappy/mini back-up would be nice + reserves - but this is for the raids. Bear in mind that for the initial 3- and 6-man instances we can actually start to combine things soon...how very motivating :)

As once Augrim pointed out (the goal), its good to see that most lvl65 players have motivation for this.

Thank you Wip for the initiative.

I'll be happy to join kin raids with Nem and Sel.
Nem has 8/20 vitrues @10
Sel has 12/20 vitrues @10


p.s. Having more than 5 virtues at 10 may be useful (especially the ones which gives fear, poison, disease, shadow resistance and ranged/tactical defence). They can be swapped according to instance needs.

Having more than 5 is definately recommended, and you shouldn't be set in stone with just 5.

But tbh only maybe 10 of the 20 are actually any use. The primarily ones you will be interested in are stat/morale/power building ones, with the flexibility coming from which mitigation you use. For example, even with melee classes, there are times when tolerance should be used instead of innocence and so forth.

I don't put any stock into the status resistance virtues. The values aren't great, and secondary stats even worse. Compare to, for example, a captain's muster courage which adds ~6500 resist and can be kept up permanently.

Counted on you Sel :) Glad to have you in!
And in terms of virtue-flexibility you are both right of course. I willingly admit to setting the count to 5 out of pure fear...since I would probably end up as fish-food in case the idea didn't take; killed slowly by a hard-working grinders :D

Anyways, the fact that you have now stated the benefits - it will probably become a priority later (when the grind-hatred has been somewhat forgotten).

Thanks to equipment dropped in NCF, StH and LT T2 raids under the excellent leadership of Grim, and some epic questing resulting in a 2nd Age level 65 sword, Aed has had a step improvement in his DPS effectiveness. Ranged offence is close to 8000 - something like 7800 - and crit ratiing is about 5000.

Next objective - to get a 2nd Age bow and get rid of the 3 remaining Moria Blue Set clothes (jacket, boots, gloves) he's wearing for something better. Possibly bits of Nenuial but not sure.
Edit - A lot of progress made; Aed now wears 4 Helegrod, 1 DN and the Footman's Leggings from StH T2.
Edit - Now ROR is around 9200 with 615 agi so goes up to 9700 when buffed; unbuffed crit is about 5200.
Edit - Have a 2A 65 bow which is a thing of true beauty - 4 major tier 6 legs, 2 more decent legs for empowerment scrolls, Beleriand damage, maxed.
