    :scratchh:

    Runic Spellthread adds 27 spell damage and 18 stamina to pants, but requires 10 Primal Mana and a Primal Nether to make, plus you have to be Exalted with Scryers to learn the pattern.

    Mystic Spellthread adds 25 spell damage and 15 stamina for only 5 Primal Mana, and only requires Honored rep.

    Does anyone else think Runic Spellthread isn't exactly worth it? On a marginal value basis it's a mere 2 spell damage and 3 stamina, for 5 Primal Mana (which can be a pain to farm) and a Primal Nether (BOP drop from 5-man dungeon final bosses).

    I'm going for Exalted with Scryers anyway for the epic caster ring, but I really don't see myself making any Runic Spellthread until they buff it. I'm all for squeezing every last drop of damage out of your gear, but c'mon.

    It is highly marginal, but I made one for me anyways. I can make if you need. I have some nethers too.

    I don't need it right now, Mystic is good enough at least until I get some pants I'll be keeping a long time (e.g. Spellstrike). If I find myself with extra Primals one of these days maybe I'll make one. My current goal is to make the Spellfire set, so any Primal Manas will be going toward that.

    From the 2.1 Patch Notes:

    Don't know what "slightly" is, but apparently my opinion was shared.

    That seems more reasonable to me.
