BiS; Resist Sigils

October 19, 2011

 

Hello everyone, this guide is designed to help you setup your resist sigils for raiding. Resist sigils are simply Sigils you fill with specific lesser essences for resist against a specific element.

Currently Death and Water resist sigils are needed for HK (Water especially as you progress deeper into HK) while Fire sigils might be helpful for the new 10 man raid instance Rise of the Phoenix due to release for 1.6. In terms of old raid content, Life resist sigils are nice for GSB while death might be useful for RoS. I have unfortunately found a use for Earth resist sigils but I bet this will change soon!

Vendor lesser essences can be brought in your capital city. They cost 2500 planarite and 50 inscribed sourcestones per lesser essence. Vendor* essences cost 1500 planarite and 20 inscribed.

Raid lesser essences can be obtained from the respective Raid Rift (i.e. Death resist lessers would come from Death Rifts)

Effective Sp is calculated as Wis*0.75 + Int*0.25 + Sp. Resist sigils are ranked in terms of effective sp. Effective Sc (not listed, can be calculated as Int+ sc)
