So if I read this data right.

Turgur's Insects (lvl 51)
Decrease Attack Speed by 16% (L51) to 90% (L61

Togor's Insects (Lvl 38)
Decrease Attack Speed by 11% (L38) to 80% (L61)

Means our scaling looks like this.
Lvl 51: 50% vs 16%
Lvl 52: 53% vs 23%
Lvl 53: 56% vs 30%
Lvl 54: 59% vs 38%
Lvl 55: 62% vs 45%
Lvl 56: 65% vs 53%
Lvl 57: 68% vs 60%
Lvl 58: 71% vs 67%
Lvl 59: 74% vs 75%
Lvl 60: 77% vs 82%
Lvl 61: 80% vs 90%

So we shouldn't bother to use this lvl 51 spell until we hit lvl 59?!? Am I missing something?
75% Really?

I have the AA version as well as the spell. I have noticed that unless I cast this on green or gray MOBS the best I can get is a "partial" what is the % and is there any AA or other debuff (Malo line) that can get me a full 75% on mobs that are at my level or higher?

3 second cast, 6 min duration 75% slow - the game of everquest has been designed around this one spell since it came out, and its still the most powerful spell in the game.

The game was balanced around complete heal, not slow. Though slow was an important spell, it never matched the sheer brute force influence of complete heal on clerics which dominated the game in every major encounter until it was very slowly phased out by massive gear HP inflation.

All group play was designed around the need for a slower. Single groups could be healed by shamans and druids, not just clerics. Now, when it comes to Raid encounters I tend to agree that those were balanced around Complete Heal.

Slow percentage

Anyone have any idea if they've increased the slow percentage past 75% with Omens of War for Turgur's? Seeing that they haven't given us [shamans] a new slow, and enchanters can now slow for up to 75%.

Uh... which Enchanter spell exactly was that that slows for 75%?

This spell is located in Firiona Vie. The vendor's name is Shelae Wolfkin. In fact many 50+ spells sell off her.
