Much respect to the standard SIB charts from Solaris.
However, I found myself using his chart as a starting point and then having to look at a couple other things from entropedia and elsewhere.
So I set out to make a nice looking chart with all the basic info needed to maximize the SIB system at a glance.
What is included:
1. The starting SIB level
2. The max SIB level
(having both of these shows the item SIB range which is extreamly important)
3. The Dmg/sec for weapons.
4. Updated images of the VU10 items
SIB = Skill Increase Bonus
Certain items give extra skills for increasing durations of professional levels. Using SIB items gives faster skill gains and thus faster professional leveling. Maxed SIB items are also good choices for economical gameplay because you are getting the most use/pec.
(Non-SIB items require 100 levels to get the max use).
Here are the major weapon systems:
I will add more charts for other items if these seem useful to others.
Look for new SIB threads to start in appropriate locations once I begin charts for other the professions.
