#19222, "RE: Underrated legacies."


          


>Renewal of the Spring

This is something of a niche legacy; for various reasons, it can be very good if you're worried about age death or expect to run your character into low con. It has some nice benefits even if these things aren't the case, but, for characters where these things aren't a concern, probably another legacy choice is better.

>Vanguards Desire

Also something of a niche legacy; PvPwise, it only really shines in fights with one sizeable group pitted against another sizeable group, which is fairly rare. I tend to think of this as the 'Hell trip leader' legacy; it's got some fantastic uses in big group exploration. If you're not interested in doing things like that, this probably isn't your best choice.

I'm okay with there being some fairly niche choices like this, since there are so many choices.

>Mercy of the Typhoon

Saw some rework maybe two years ago. I know some people have had it since then but I don't know how much the changes have ever been talked about. I've definitely seen some characters that didn't pick this legacy that I thought should have, just seeing the way their fights tended to play out.

Much like Surrounding the Sunrise, this is probably a better pick for characters who see a lot of group vs. group or them-solo vs. group fights, and a less good pick for a character who mostly gets one on one fights.

>Forsaken Thoughts

A great pick for anyone especially worried about communers or holy/unholy damage. If rot or wrath or whatever is what keeps killing you or giving you trouble, this is a great legacy.

>Fluid Deceptions

A good legacy, albiet one that's often overshadowed lately by Striking for a lot of the kinds of characters that would normally have been expected to take it. Probably best picked by characters that need or have a plan for its special disarming effect. (Also a good pick if warriors with Striking are your bane, incidentally.)

>Space Between Heartbeats

One of my absolute favorite legacies. Also recently overshadowed by Striking being in vogue, since it also somewhat tends to favor smart/quick warriors vs. brawny ones. I think this is a pretty good legacy even in a vacuum, but sees its full potential realized in conjunction with spec and/or other legacy choices that plan for it. (Most obvious example: this is a great pick for a character who disarms their opponents a lot one way or another.)
