So I got my hands on a Celtic Tribolt with +25 base MA, and since the repair fees are much lower than I thought they would be (like holy hell, 1/4th of Savage), I plan to make it my main wand. Since it'll have much higher MA, it'll be replacing...
1 - My S5 Speed+12% Savage Lightning (made for rafting and lockdown before the magic speed changes hit NA).
2 - My S6 CC+5 Savage Fire (used for murderizing things).
I also have an S5 CC+5 Savage Ice (originally made for niche uses and training), but I'm going to keep that for Blaze since it does much more damage there and I can IS->Blaze with it.
My MA is...
~238 with no bonuses.
~263 with the wand held.
~281 with titles (Magic Weapon Master and Merlin).
~306 with titles and the wand held.
For upgrades (before gem), I plan to go for the CC+4 and +12 MA upgrade path because +speed is tempting, but only 7% isn't worth it.
Thing is, I rarely use mage as my main offensive form, usually it's secondary to melee (Lightning Rod Blinkers) or situational (CC Firebolt stuff that scares me). So I rarely, if ever, bother to change titles for +MA.
I currently have +42 max damage from enchants, and when holding the wand and my gear and using a normal BFO (no instrument) my character screen damage goes from 522->673 max, a gain of 151.
So uh... any specific insight on red versus blue for this case on the Tribolt?
