The tier 11 bonuses have been released. While early tier gear never has spectacular bonuses, I feel slightly underwhelmed by these.
- Balance 2P Bonus – Increases the critical strike chance of your Insect Swarm and Moonfire spells by 5%. / Instant
- Balance 4P Bonus – Whenever Eclipse triggers, your critical strike chance with spells is increased by 99% for 8 sec. Each critical strike you achieve reduces that bonus by 33%. / Instant
The 5% crit bonus has always been an early bonus for us, although I think I’d rather have it be on Starfire and Wrath like the early Wrath bonuses. I’m not convinced our DoTs are going to be that worthwhile.
As for the 4 piece bonus, it’s basically giving us 1-2 free crits. Um… yay?
