    So, how is my weapon? Comparison table

    I think it will be helpful for all the new Elementalists, who are trying to get to max. Level at the moment and those who will follow as secondary characters to find a comparison on how good or bad your current weapon really is and if you should upgrade to a new one.

    This table below shows you Fine (mostly, some Masterwork) crafted weapons you can make yourself as an Artificer (Weaponsmith for daggers) or buy fairly cheap (up until Lvl 60/65 items) on the trading post.
    Rare (yellow coloured) or Exotic (orange coloured) weapons have higher damage values than the items listed here. They rate approximately 2 to 3 damage classes higher, meaning a rare dagger that requires Level 50 can be as good as a Level 60 Fine crafted dagger (will try to fine exact numbers if possible).

    What I did not incorporate into the table are the stats of the armour, like having "+ Power" or "+ Vitality"

    Too many numbers? Want a rule of thumb?

    Try not to run around with weapons that are more than 10 Levels below your max. You will notice a significant lack of punch to raw Power based damage, once you hit areas that do not scale you down.

    A little explanation for the info graphic:

    • The left column is for players who want to augment their path of critical damage and direct damage. This probably means favouring Fire & Air Magic as your main damage dealers.
    • The right column is for players who want to augment their path of condition damage over time. These upgrades are for players that favour Earth & Fire Magic and degeneration via the conditions of those skills (Bleeding; Burning)

    The higher up on the graphics the more the upgrades augment active and aggressive game play and play style, which some might call a "glass canon" stereotype. Adding just the upper two groups will result in Toughness being below 1k and the ability to self heal very limited (if no points in Earth or Air Magic traits are spent).

    The further down on the graphics the more the upgrades augment defensive and controlled game play, which increases survivability. While Knight's is a general "aggressive" component, Soldier's provides a lot of staying power.
    Cleric's, Magi and Shaman's will fit your game play, if you like the support role, as you can heal others better and revive allies faster due to the Healing component. A full set (Cleric's; Shaman's) will lack some punch when fighting foes.

    The "Magic Find" of Explorer's & Traveller's adds a passive component, as it does not involve combat stats, like the others. Therefore it was put on the lower end of the graphic, despite the fact that two stats contributes to damage. In a three dimensional graphics, those two would be separate "branches" of the graphic.
    It was just a method of organizing to put them there.

    It seems like my warrior gets really good weapon drops compared to my ele. The warrior needs a trailer to carry all her weapons and my ele gets a drop only to sell it because once again the weapon is equal to the current +/- 4 points.
