I recently resurrected a template I loved to play, in short it has gm alchemy on it. I used to run a 50 ep ring but I have a really really nice 25 ep ring that I would prefer to use, and with the 5 mage tali I get a total of 40 ep. So what is the difference between 40 and 50 ep? With gm alch I know i get another 30% added on so I suppose the question is what is the difference between 70 and 80 EP? I also was curious if the melisande wines do more damage vs a greater explode. Finally does anyone know how ep and/or alchemy will effect the adjustments to cure potions that are planned for the new changes? I suppose I could do trial and error, but it would be nice to know before I plan a suit around 40 ep and find out it is a big differnce compared to 50ep. This is for pvp also.. so throwing potions at ettins or w/e isn't going to give me a real good idea of what to expect.
