Well, haven't seen one of these in awhile and I've been thinking about possible strats for my NCB and needed some help. I want to accomplish two things with my NCB: first, have a powerful CoC Mage and second, maximize effectiveness of a PL minion or at least use one well. If you can think of any changes, or an entirely different strat then feel free to post here (good thing there isnt a 2k reply fee ;) )
Beginning strat: Single CoC/RoE mage. Training all HP and CoC.
Middle-lower level: add an enchanter or wall/tank (see below for specifics) or both at the same time?
High end: WEM(W/T/E) ... yes that is a single WTE minion. Now let me explain.
For my mage:
Gear: AG's, CoI, Corn, DB's, MCM
Training: CoC and HP ~200k mpr?
I am thinking a base protection (maybe a (20), not sure). I also am considering GA but fear that may dillute his EXP too much.
For my enchanter:
Gear: Corn, ToE (am also considering RoS)
Training: AMF(obviously) and AS (or GA depending on what tatt I choose)
Now the WTE:
Gear: EC's, EB's, EG's, HoE, TSA, BoM, big BoTh something like x80 +30(to save DX penalty and get the drain effect)
Training: This will be my PL minion with most (~60%)of his EXP going into HP's. Some DX (to hit mages) and a bit more ST to boost damage. Its on his enchantment that I am up in the air about. My initial thought was GA if infact is train AS on my enchanter. Now I'm thinking maybe put the Prot (20) on him, seeing as I will only need a fixed amount EXP. The PL level is what I am most concerned about... I'm thinking keep it small to avoid him dying too quickly (as I want to let him get to melee to do some damage and get some HPs back from drain)
Wall: No brainer. ;p I'll be putting a MgS on him most likely. No weapon to avoid extra damage from GA (or RoBF... yeah, ok)
Room for input:
Choice of tattoo (ToE or RoS or maybe a LRoBF)?
Should I add a small VA so that my mini-tank can actually make surplus HP's?
When should I add my minions?
Level of PL?
See any obvious weaknesses?
Oh yeah, can I get a copyright on this? }:)
If you're still reading, I truly am sorry this has been WAYYY too long.
