Do Attuned & Boosters (+5's) combined Break the set?

Recommended Posts

I have 3 Luck of the Gambler sets of 5 all with +5 boosters 4 of them 50's with level 25's for the LOTG 7.5% Global Recharges.

 

Will Attuning the just the level 25 Chance for global recharge's I have slotted break the sets and remove the 3.75% S/L & 6.25% Mez resist the 5th slots provide?

 

 

+5-ing the level 25's gives me 15% Defense instead of 12% but if I Attune them market is showing them at 15.9%.

 

 

Do I keep +5's or can I Attune them for slight increase?

 

The same goes for any other sets, like Steadfast for instance.

Yup, what tidge said.  Only the Winter sets and ATOs get broken if you attune them.  Although in rare cases where the 2 and 3 slot bonuses are just that good, you can make 3 of the set superior and that would give you both the set bonus for 3 regular and 3 superior (Defender Vigilant Assault comes to mind).  That being said, most people that split the sets tend to put 3 superior in one power and the other 3 superior in another.  But sometimes builds are tight and that can work in those cases.

Is that a thing?

In a tight build where you need more recharge and you cannot split up the set, yes.  In most cases there are other options so it is rare but I have seen people do it.

The reason you see a difference on attuned versus a level 25 of the same IO is because attuned sets are level-equivalent (they level with you, exemp with you). They are ultimately a better choice if you plan on exemp'in down at all.

 

The only scenario where I'd suggest it being worth boosting a specific enhancement would be one-offs and basic IO's, or in situations like proc slotting a power and using a slot or two for Dual/Triple IO's to max out those values as much as possible for those two pieces.

 

Also, you can attune one piece out of the set in a single ability, and still retain equivalent set bonuses (if I recall correctly). Meaning you could attune the 7.5% Global LotG, and 50+5 the rest of the pieces and still get the collective bonus.

Yes, there are several AT-O's where 2 or 3 pieces have a beneficial bonus that exceeds going for a full set. Masterminds and Scrappers are two other cases. One of the MM sets gives +10% Global Rech at two pieces, and one of the Scrapper sets gives a big push to S/L Def at 3, so it is common for people to slot them accordingly and catalyze them into Superior status. Very rarely will you ever see someone slot an entire set into one ability, and only catalyze half of it.

Overwhelming force has 3% damage for only 3 slots but don't see any Attuned option to make it purple.

 

My build is very unique but works for me, I +5 where ever I could that doesn't waste them.

Lets just say I wont need yellow inspirations any time soon with all the purple sets I have slotted, although It lacks in the tohitbuff department.

 

With the added Attuned I think things rounded up nicely.
