Strat Question (in General)

FailBoat[SG] [Forever Alone] December 14 2005 6:33 PM EST

And its not a dumb one. I've done some Wiki digging, and a little thread diving, but I still can't find an answer to the question that is bothering me. I've been wondering if I should move my "tank" Hopeless up to the second, or even first, slot in my roster since he seems to last forever and a day with little to no damage to his health when I fight people at my score rating. Since that is what I plan on doing, fighting score rating only instead of power rating, should I leave him where he is or move him to the top so that he can be a secondary meat shield for my mage who is pretty much the focal point of my team.

You could move the tank up front, put the FF on your enchanter, and armor the mage up...

The only problem with putting him in front is the damage the mage and FF will inflict on him in melee.

I'm waiting on armoring the mage until I can buy the "uber" gear for him, which should be in about a year or so with how quickly I play. :D

a few months ago i muved my tank up front with my mage in the back. i worked out much better. the only difference is i have a ToJ in the middle not a FF. the friendly fire may be the downside but, you may consider changing tats.

Yeah, right now I'm happy with the added damage from the FF since I really can't decide on what to switch to. I've been trying to get supportership for the ToJ but I think that its a buy only item now since the Troll Armor is the new one. Or am I mistaken?

As this is the sort of strat change you can try without really losing anything (I know maybe a few lost fights) I suggest you experiment yourself.
