How to use Greater Abyssal Tears to great effect
Just thought I'd share a little project I'm working on. It involves turning two legacy 60% crit dmg rings with crappy stats (for my melee char) into two solid legacy melee rings.
Here's the rings I started with:
First step is to put an Eternal Alexandrite into the rings.
Second step, hit each ring with a Greater Abbysal Tear (GAT).
CAREFULLY Rinse and repeat these two steps until all the undesired mods are stripped off the rings.
*If you forget to put an Alexandrite gem into the ring before using the GAT, you'll probably lose your legacy crit stat!
These are my cleaned-up rings, after all the bad affixes were rolled off:
Only reason I kept the life and rage generation on hit was because I wanted these affixes, could easily have stripped those off.
Now for the hard part: slamming on new stats with Greater Erebian Tears that you actually want. I've yet to figure out if I should use gems to influence my GET slams or not, but either way the process is:
1) slam on a stat, if it's bad, roll the ring back to a clean state, using Alexandrite gems and GATs.
2) if it's a good slam, keep slamming.
You'll reach a point where you have 3 or 4 good rolls before you need to make the tougher choice of trying to clean off 1 bad stat or keeping it to preserve the other 3 or 4 good stats.
Ran out of GATs mid-project so I'll update post the final product once my rings are finished up. ^.^
