By the way, has rend life been changed again very recently? I was just playin a new, low level necro and rend life has been doing consistantly less damage than my normal attacks. Maybe it's more based on level now?
Or maybe i'm just imagining it...

We fixed a bug that accidentally doubled the damage contribution from the reaper's weapon to rend life. Remember, the damage from rend life depends on both the power of your reaper's weapon AND your equipped damroll. This explains why rend life has been doing more damage than originally designed, especially at lower levels (where hardly anyone has any damroll yet).

If it was dampened a little, would be because the damage it used to do at low level was tremendous and was hard to stand up to, so that equals lots of little lowbie trash.

Rend life was doing crazy damage; it was alarming how quickly one could get it up to demolishes and devastates. The change seems to be pretty severe though...my dam roll is only in the low teens, but it is still very frustrating to see 'hits' and even 'grazes' on rend life.

Which means your damroll contribution to rend life is completely negligible. If you're going to rend seriously, boost it to 20+ damroll at the very least. You'll need well over 50 damroll to max out rend life damage (and before you scoff, I can name over a half-dozen recent mages and clerics who have had 50+ damroll, including at least two still-active ones).

If you have no damroll to speak of, then you'll need more levels for a stronger reaper's weapon. As a comparison, how much damage did chill touch used to do at your level?

As you level up, be sure to try creating a new reaper's weapon from time to time to see if you can create more powerful ones as well. Since you'll be killing stronger and stronger mobs as you level up, it should be rather trivial to enhance your new reaper's weapon beyond your old one.

Yea, everything you say is true. I'm just sore because a few days ago necromancers were easy to solo rank out of the low levels and now its not so. But I suppose they're just not meant to do that sort of thing.

LOl yeah reaping blade is great. This one time, there was this group a necromancer wanted to get into, so he attacked and completely stomped this illusionist. Later, the illusionist comes back and even with sanc, get stomped again because colour spray was only doing decimates and wounds to an unsanced necro, and hob spark did better, but too bad the necro resisted it a lot. through sanc this necros regular attacks were decimates, and rend life was even better. I had to lmao, cause the illus was so helpless.
