So I’ve been highly anticipating this defensive rider for over six months. Finally a chance to narrow a portion of the ever widening gap.
Saved my sigils (other than token boost) and on its release I shall have it. Yay! I am happy (as much as possible without seeing percentages) with what I saw on the FB stream in regards to his attributes. I decided I would actually go second page and get his armor since there’s no way to know when I can craft my own and every little bit helps. Having made that decision I grin with anticipation waiting for the last bit of info I need, elemental type. What dragon do I get to put on my perch!?! Excitement mounts. Then I hear it. Fire!!! Yay! Wait… What…? I rack my brain thinking of a Mythic fire and fall short. Now somewhat leery I dash off to my castle and search every drag. Two, there’s two Mythic linage drags with fire element, Mehaten (Sapphire) and Rhyo (Obsidian). Trying to keep positive I say to myself, there must be more in the divines so I dive right in. One… there’s one Mythic divine with fire, Corthanak. So while I’m still really glad there’s a defensive rider I guess he gets to go naked and show off those perfectly drawn abb’s because there’s no need to waste all those sigils for armor that I can’t use. Sigh…
Honestly I believe the defensive rider should be generic when it comes to element and I find it hard to believe the element they gave us is the least useful one in the game. So my advice is get the rider skip the gear.
Edit: Better advice is make sure you can use the armor before you buy it.
I’m following my original advice
2nd Edit: Through this thread I have learned that I was mistaken. I tested by placing ice armor on a chaos rider and found that the seasonal riders are indeed generic and any gear can be equipped to them regardless of their given element. Being that this armor is going to have the only defensive boosts that I have access to for a while I may change my mind once the stats come out and save it for a future Mythic. It wouldn’t be the first time I ignored my own advice.
