Not all classes are created equally.  Sure, give Sky's a 200 hp cure every 3 ticks.  Don't care about that.  They 6x oblit whenever they want at legend.  Some classes are great for the 2 man setup, others more for solo, others for 8 mans.  Stop talking about nerfing classes.  That is not what we need in this game.

Don't you dare touch animate!  That's the only reason anyone would ever play the class.  If we went through all of the OP things for each class, we could make a similar case for how ridiculous other things are.  I'm fairly certain almost every fight in the game could be healed now without a cleric, so if we want to take away the one thing cleric can do well, stick the fork in them.

I would leave the corpse power the same on animate and lower the number by 1. Since you get a gate charmie as well that can do decent damage

It's all relative.

I did Amity, Glymmer, Argentine, and various other hard fights with my white robe and shaman. Conversely, Frostbyte fist-bapted me. Well skilled, spelled, geared and strategised characters can do a lot, but certain things will also counter your crew. There are fights that break animates... just not many.

Back to the point... I agree animate is pretty beasty, but given how boring clerics are it would seem unfair to take away their most enjoyable function. It could probably do with a nerf though. There's no other spell that is as good for PVE... other than heal maybe.

So let's stop ignoring the elephant in the room...

Animate Dead is bapted. I shouldn't be able to deal 6 annihilate/obliterates a round with crap animates, then 6x obliterate/mutilates on top tiers. Add in rapture and there's another 2x obliterate/mutilates.

This needs to be changed. Max one corpse, No weapons. Make them the same strength as a mid-high tier corpse right now with a good weapon on and leave it at that.

This spell is utterly broken.

It's been this way for years and people were saying that clerics needed love not nerfs.  Has something changed?  Corey's suggestions do make sense though. Maybe throw in some quality of life (like summoning circle can bring grouped corpses or something) and start selling shark jaws again.

idk. I've had several legend skies and yeah some shit would engage me but unless the mob was noshoot like lord in sanction then it wasn't a huge deal

Clerics are better with animate to single target i suppose, but not overall. A sky in awesome eq hitting single target 6x per round while hitting 4 or 5 other things at the same time and bursting for another 5 hits or so plus weapon specs, while being nobash and able to improve group dps for a short time... hands down the best.

Sky is single handedly the best dps in the game.

On any fight harder than frostbyte, skies are completely useless because the mob has some sort of engaging special that ignores evade or is noshoot or is stoneskin.  their usefulness in duo and endgame is highly limited.  but yes, they do shine in their niche.

Thats my whole point... why does everything have to be made to compete with all the other things? Sky is single handedly the best dps in the game. Nothing else even comes close. So why should it also play the part of a miniature healer?

Clerics are better
