Strat Talk (cont.) (in General)

Hey everyone!

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.

Yours truly,
Dreky

ok first thing VA and BoTH/MH dont give leech to a VA minion so go for an ELS or BoNE if you want a W/E/T minion as for tats if a mage is your main damage dealer go for a ToE (IMO the best mage tat because of AMF backlash reduction) definately go GA on this minion for an enchantment and AMF/AS on the E as you are going to be a melee based team.

that should read PL minion :)

CoC mage up front with ToE (so the damage they would do is already reduced) and PL/HP minion in back (so it takes the reduced damage at a reduced rate for your mage), adding like 10k DX and 100k STR with a BoTH so you gain back HP for PL.


That's the most efficient thing I can think of.

I would start with FB first then as you get enough HP built up to last into Melee switch to CoC.

FB RoE to 666k (since you hate fb so much)

hire three minions buy RoS/ToE/Whatever (or get an RoBF and keep fb, which if done right could be the master fb strat)
and either convert to CoC, or Str and DEX.
