  • Aldor or Scryers

    I've been going back and forth on this since Sajier's initial post in Tactics. There are obviously great tailoring patterns and enchanting recipes available from both groups. I was hoping to hear which factions others were taking and some of the reasons why. I'm looking through the items from each side's vendors as well but I'm pretty sure that the listings I have are wrong from what I remember seeing last night.

    Anyway, if some of you (especially you enchanters and tailors) have decided - post which way you went. It would be nice to have multiple people in guild that can make the items from each faction.
    Gigan - Shaman (Resto)
    Pistos - Semi-retired Shadowpriest
    ...and other distractions of various levels.

      Re: Aldor or Scryers

      As a neglected miner/engineer (however Azeroth is now my personal goldmine) it's tougher for me to decide as it's purely on gear. That being the case, I went for Aldor as a DPS mage.

      Now, for long term great loot items Scryers may be better for their neck and ring pieces. The main draw for Aldor is their staff and chestpiece, both of which I think get replaced by better items if I'm not mistaken. So to take advantage it'd be wise to jump into the rep grind fairly quickly as you only need honored and revered to get those.

      As usual, it only really benefits to grind if we've got a DKP system, otherwise people will defer to waiting until large end-game raids to get all their stuff. I need to start studying the loot tables to figure all this out before I start grinding my life away.

        Re: Aldor or Scryers

        As a leatherworking hunter the decision took me a bit but I decided on Aldor after looking over what each side had.

        The shoulder enchants a hunter would want from either seem to blance out (little more crit than ap with Scryers and ap than crit with Aldor).

        The Aldor offer a ring a hunter would want and a hunter usable sword while the Scryers only had a dagger as far as I could see.

        Patterns for leatherworking are a choice between FR gear and a +def armor kit from Aldor or AR gear and a +mana regen armor kit from Scryers.

        P.S. A small perk for Aldor is they have a back door out into Nagrand. Nice view. ;)

        P.P.S. For an enchanter Scryers might be more convenient since they have an enchanting trainer 'in house' so to speak but I'm not really sure that's a bit deal.

          I went Scryer's. I liked the +dmg spellthread..and the shoulder enchant was superior. That, and I liked the scryer's backstory better, which made it all the easier.

                I took Pistos to the ebil Scryers - Tailor/Enchanter

                EDIT: Will probably take Colte to the Aldor side, but just a gathering toon so it doesn't really matter much.

                        Re: Aldor or Scryers

                        I probably should get around to working on the rep, but there's just so much else to do.

                        Can someone tell me if the shoulder enchants are locked to your specific class role or if you can pick a different one.

                        As a LWing Hunter I see the Magister Armor Kit (+3 mana/5 second) being more profitable then the Vindicator's Armor Kit (+8 defense rating).

                        If we're locked with shoulder enchants then the Aldor honored and exalted shoulders for hunters (+26 AP -> +30 AP and +10 Crit) trumps the Scryer versions (+13 crit rating -> +15 crit rating and +20 AP) simply because the honored version is more useful for the length of time you'll be using it. However, if we could pick from any shoulder enchant then the Scryers would have the advantage because the healer shoulder (+5 mana/ 5 second) is superior to the honored ranged damage dealer enchant.

                        When I eventually get around to it my priest (Mirra) will go with Aldor because the +healing tailoring gear mixes better with my build and play style.

                        Still up in the air with my hunter though. :(
                        My sanity is not in question...
                        It was a confirmed casualty some time ago.


                        Light, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of the people I had to kill because they ticked me off.

                            Talara went Aldor only for the shoulder enchants...nothing else of Aldor/Scryer pertained to me.
