What to do with $2.5 mil CB2??? Strat help! (in General)

AdminShade September 2 2005 5:05 AM EDT

Inspect my character if you like or ask me details if you want because you could need them IF you actually want to help me out a bit:

What should I do with the 2.5 million CB2 that I currently have?

Should I upgrade Weapons, and if yes which and what (X/+) ?
Should I upgrade Armor, and if yes which?
Should I buy some special item, and if yes which item?

Please try to help me a bit since I'm a bit at a loss here as to what to do :P

Displacement Boots would always be a help.
And I just happen to have a pair ;P

I think if any of us would help we would need to know the exact stats on your character, IE skills and items.

I will be happy to help you out if you want. You can always CM me the stats if you want.

Ranger, check Shades "Make my strategy better, if you like to help :)" thread below. :)

And nowhere on that post I can see, does it state the item stats.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 2 2005 6:35 AM EDT

Nope, you right! no items stats...

But the character ones are there.

If you aren't too set on keeping the HoD maybe you should think about a HoE. A +10 HoE is under 300K NW and would add another 12k to your ST and with you going BL now more ST is better.

AdminShade September 2 2005 12:19 PM EDT

Well the reason I threw away my Tulkas' Gauntlets was that the ST bonus was too small to actually do any good, the Elven Gloves work very well for me now.

Also my HoD is named and a new HoE would undo that naming, I could keep a spare HoE perhaps but that would be a worry for later in the game :)

I would put half the money into x on your VB and half into the + on your bow.

QBRanger September 2 2005 3:50 PM EDT

A few thoughts on what to do with the cash.,

First get a corn, that will increase your AMF and AS helping you with both defense vs give you more HP for both minions.

Second, as Glory said, raise the x on the VB and the + on the enforcers xbow, but I perfer....

Third, Raise the x on the VB to +75 or so and get an assassins xbow. I know with less str they do less damage, but with less dex, they will never hit you.

AdminShade September 3 2005 7:16 AM EDT

hmmm buying a corn would be a good decision.

raising the x on the VB and the + on the enforcers xbow will be a good decision also.

but changing from my exbow to axbow is something i wont do, sorry :)
