My understanding is the Devs didn't bother removing focus effects for the Time-locked Progression servers as it would be a global change. When you consider how few are actually going to be available (and how difficult some of these will be to acquire in the early days of the servers) I can see why they didn't bother taking them out.

Despite diminishing returns after level 20, few of the rank I's are obtainable solo or even with proper-levelled groups prior to level 20. Rank II and III will also take some time to saturate the market...

Besides, I like lists...

I've added the rank II focus effects to the list. There's a couple of ones impacted by Temple of Sol Ro quests that I have left off for now as I have heard those quests aren't active on TLP servers.

Also note that quite a few hotzone added drops (i.e., to lower guk) have focus effects but it is my understanding that those are not on the TLP servers for some time to come.

A few of the rank IIs have comments or questions noted if it was unclear if they would be available.

I had also missed reanimation efficiency and haste rank I so I added those to the lists.

Pet focus are not listed as they have a convoluted history. Read Iben's post a few posts down the thread here to get a summary of the history of pet focus. Going by this, mages have their little class (and pet) specific focus items in original world. Necros will get one when Plane of Hate is available and the switch to generalized to all pet classes foci happens with Luclin.

There are of course, many more rank II focus items in game, but they are placed in Kunark and Ykesha mostly, with a smattering in Velious and PoP requiring quests.


Let me know if I have missed anything, I'll edit it in.

This is a great list. Thank you so much for putting it together. I'll definitely be referring to it later on.

Cheers.

I've added in the Rank III's. Fear and Hate are open on TLP now (prior to Kunark) so there is some gear options for those that can tackle those zones.

Note that only some rank III's will come in with Kunark (though Veksar has quite a few... but when is it live on TLP?). Velious brings nearly all of them in, but almost always on raid mobs.

For non-raiders, the tradable or groupable rank III's don't really come into play until Legacy of Ykesha. Since the rank IV craftables (i.e., Ceramic ____) come out for most effects in Planes of Power that is just one example that explains the historic lack of appetite for gear-hunting in most of LoY.

After that it's the crafted augments that servers I played on never had for sale, with The Serpent's Spine making acquisition of rank III's easily doable by a very casual player.

Note that some effects have very few items in the game with them on it (even up to House of Thule). I forget exactly when tribute came into play, but it dramatically alters a caster's outlook on gear needs.

*Some Temple of Sol Ro quests (rank II I believe) are missing from the list. Since it is not clear if the quests are all active on TLP it would be nice for someone to reply here if/when they have completed one that is not listed.

**Also please feel free to suggest any I have missed, I will add them in.

One question about focus effects: is the level cap relevant to the player's level or the actual level of the spell?

Thanks for the links Yther, that helps me out tremendously. I noticed a few level 40+ players (on TLP servers) wearing items with (insert focus)I items and thought that they would be useless at and after level 25 with the 5% diminishing per level. I'm only level 13 so I haven't got to test it myself.

Thanks again, I tried to search for the answer myself but was hindered by beer consumption.

I'm still wearing the +3 int rings from killing cubert repeatedly for the quest. The focus is only rank 1 (and I have replaced it) but the cost of upgrading (100+ plat for +2 or 3 int in the slot) isn't worth it at the moment for me.

Many of the other rank II's I would like are just not being seen in /auction, I can't or haven't been able to camp them yet, or people want more plat than I have seen so far.

Also, some low level spells are still cast at higher level. The focus effects we are talking about usually work the same for the various ranks, just have a level limit for decay. So extending your lowbie snare with a rank 1 item makes sense if you don't have a rank 2 and so on.

I generally stick with lower level snares until resists become a problem, or the mana required for the higher level ones becomes insignificant, whichever comes first. There are many utility and aggro spells like this. And on the TLP servers, I'd think it'd be even more appropriate, as mana pools and mana regen will be low for quite a while.

Similarly, with a good set of rank I focus effects, the lower level spells may be more mana efficient with the foci than the higher level ones without.

Yther Ore.

Any chance you're still around and would be willing to add Kunark focus effects to the list? Maybe with a (Kunark) after them or something?

Also you've missed all the class specific sol ro armor that has focus effects, like the cleric and shaman BPs that have extended enhancement II on them.

I've been looking through the individual lists of focus effects to see which ones are Kunark and it's a nightmare. Like mana perservation III, there are a lot of items listed but it looks like only 1 that drops in Kunark, Obulus Death Shroud.

Kunark Focus list now exists here .


Any specific missed item should be mentioned in the thread so it can be added to the original post.

I'm not sure I will get around to doing Velious or Luclin any time soon. Big rate ups to the user(s) that take that on. Please do them in their own thread if you do as this will be more useful for future progression servers.

At some point a blended list might make sense as well. I'm thinking on that (or just adding the classic ones forward to the Kunark list as they would still be available). Thoughts?

Yeah, I'm on Phingel right now, this list is pretty much only useful on progression servers.

I just wanted a list, keeping them separate with links to each other is fine as far as I'm concerned. I just wanted the info in a list somewhere. I'm not picky. Thanks again :).

Rokyls Channelling Crystal was under rank 3 of extended enhancement already.

Your second link is clipped, what item did you mean?

Upcoming Mangler progression server has focus effects locked out until Luclin. Not clear on the official boards yet if this is a global change for all future servers, or just a Mangler server thing.
