Dumb game design.
3 potency is about 7% dps. Not insignificant. But you also lose malus
Right because signature spells and whirlwind/seize are not major factors in a fight. You people are clueless, and it pains me to read your ridiculously stupid posts.

You can balance as you like and gimp yourself based on what you like more. If you need something go buy in the AH or ask in /trade. Easy and simple.

And i can count the number of fights i won/lost with a 3% difference on the finger of one hand, meaning that, if you have won or lost that fight, in the majority of the cases will not be thanks to that 3%.It is better to have it, sure it can help...will it win the fight? definitely not. And, actually, chosing a title will give you the 3% increase in that title, but you will GET (not lose) maluses for all other forms of damage....so being able to do 6/7% more dmg in fire magic at the cost of -2/4% in everything else surely is not going to change the course of a battle...Quote from: ruckus98 on February 14, 2018, 08:19:49 pmRight because signature spells and whirlwind/seize are not major factors in a fight. You people are clueless, and it pains me to read your ridiculously stupid posts.You need 1 title for your weapon and that's it...signatures? are nice to have sure. Will they win you the fight? again, no.Even going full combat specced you will not be able to access all signatures anyway, so does it also means that if i go full combat spec but chose the "wrong" schools (according to the meta that dictates us what is "mandatory" to have to avoid being gimped) i will surely lose? i highly doubt it.Even taking 1 melee weapon and 1 mage school, you are complete in both magic, melee and archery...you just miss those mere 3-4% dps and you can still have 2 crafting titles.If you think that going that route you'll have gimped yourself and are doomed to lose all pvp because "he had 5 combat titles" you're just trying to justify your losses and pointing at game faults while you lost simply because he was better than you
