it's an incredible ring for doing damage.

I added it to my archon build, stats show ~10K dps drop, but the reality is elites just melt infront of you.

I find it frankly unbelievable that an SoJ isn't on every players finger. I think it gets ignored because the paper sheet DPS doesn't reflect it.

It takes a really amazing ring to beat SoJs in terms of damage-dealing vs elites/bosses. Ring gives 0 into EHP though, so switching out a nice occy ring for an soj would take a very big chunk out of a player's survivability.

I keep a nice one with -5 disintegrate cost for ubers and higher mp levels.

Well for us CM/WW the CR cc is worth the survival if the SOJ has it... of course :) Though I agree

We did some experiments on MP10 ubers with my SOJ with 30% against elites and 7% crit chance added to EB..

My sheet DPS was down to 120k against the other CM wiz better geared with higher aps and sitting at 160K sheet..

Our monk runs a meter and end of each uber fight I placed 5-8% higher overall damage than the other CM wiz.. considering we both we locked on each pair of bosses pretty much beginning to end of each fight I think it's a fair assessment this ring is a pretty nice addition to your tools regardless of build.

my build doesnt work with soj. I got one in box but ias drops too low to fuction well.

it's actually overrated. take any of my rings i lose 25% dps and build doesnt work

I have 13% to elite without it.... SOJ is not for CM especially since ring can be 6 crit now.

SOJ is just ok for CM (with 6-7 ET), not great.

SOJ is BIS for archon.

Everyone....barring heavily geared CM...should have one to swap for ubers and elites as they are incredibly cheap....I got my 6% crit RoF 30% dmg for like 3.5m gold... aand the loss of dps sheet is meaningless when you factor in a straight 30% esp if you can make up for the crit with the special whether you are CM or whatever

Best way to sort them is search for:

-All Armors

Select

-Bonus Damage to Elites 25+(sort to how high you want)
-Maximium Arcane Power

This will list every 25+ SOJ for Wizards only. Still not great but better than sifting through every class.

AH!! Awesome! Thank you! I've been trying to figure out the best way to search through them for my class. :) You can also just search for 20+ since there's nothing else like it.

As a DH, I search for Max Discipline.
