It does what it says on tin, but it really should come with a mental health warning for the under 70’s (RR that is). It can cause depression. Because only when it’s installed, does it really make you aware of the fact, that you’re a puppy in a pit full of mastiffs.
Without a doubt it’s very useful. I tend to use it at the start of each scenario, to get a feel of the relative merits of my own group mates and my opponents on destro. It will normally give me a good indication of how the fights going to go, it also lets me know how well my team are going to do in terms of acquiring RPs. Lets put it this way, if you’re surrounded by gray <64s then you’re probably in for a severe beating.
In big fights it also tells me who to not bother healing anymore, because basically they’re not worth saving. Let me put it this way, if you’ve a choice between healing a slayer RR88-91 and archmage around RR32, then it doesn’t take Einstein to figure out who’s going to be bringing home the bacon, or in our case RP’s. I mean I do wonder why the low RR’s always push themselves to the front of the fight, only to get smashed by some Magus farting in their general direction. I know in the case of melee, there’s no real choice, but there’s no reason on gods green earth that the ranged players should be anywhere near the front.
So yes, a most useful add-on, but probably for all the wrong reasons. At least it tells the lower ranks which characters on the opposing side to leave alone till the very end. I can’t remember which blogger brought it to my attention, but thanks it’s been a real eye opener.
If you don’t already have it, grab it from here, you’re only doing yourself a disservice by not having it installed.
