Hi guys, since last update I havent had the time to log in to check out the whole starlit crystla biz, but have read about it. I wont be able to play lotro for maybe one or two weeks so I figured to ask you guys if its's worth attempting to grind these crystals when i start playing again.
Waht do they exactly do to Minstrel weps/books? I hasve read they would increade the tactical healing rating of books and the tactical damage of books. I have a pretty nice 2nd age healing/anthem of composure buffing book which is my pride and joy, and an ok 2nd age dps club when i go warspeech (my healing wep is a 3rd ager and my warspeech book is a 3rd ager). Besides imrpoving tactical rating, what else would they do?
Thank you for replying Escander. My 2nd age book has the following legs: Healing & Motivation, Inspire Fellows, Bolster Courage and Raise the Spirit (all tiered up to 6, I get all but Raise the Spirit to 10%, RtS gets up to 8%) plus these two minors: Anthem of Composure (tactical) and Anthem of Composure (resists). So its safe to assume that the crystlas would update the two minor legs plus the tacticla healing rating? If so, how exactly doe sit work: Each crystal would improve healing tact rating AND the two minors by small increments? Or would each crystal improve different things? ( As in: 1st Crystal Healing tact, 2nd crystal minor legs, etc..)
If I ever get my hands on crystals I'll follow your example and post screens of my weps.
Anybody else has screenies of before/after crystals?
I took these pictures as I was attaching 3 crystals to my book. I was traited red so the last one is me traited 4b/3y with cry of valor and Ao3a on. I see it as a 5.2-8% healing increase with the crystals (8% once traited blue). This also puts a maxed 3 crystal 2% healing behind a maxed FA, and 7% healing behind a maxed 3 crystal FA. Not bad, but not game breaking either.

Star-lit crystals are awesome improvement to second age books. If you have first age books don't bother slotting crystals on it.
I have FA lvl 75 songbook on my minstrel, sloting one crystal will increase your tactical healing rating by merely 0.7, so in total with 3 crystals by 2.1. In my opinion - not worth it.
2.1 tac healing is roughly 4% healing. when you are capped in everything else most raid mins will improve everything they can. Just think about the craziness we go through for an extra 10% healing... trait blue, use valuable healing time to use Ao3a, or the stupid long cast time of Major balad now.
