My new MPB (in General)
Just for comparison folks.
With a tiny amount of Str (around 40K), a x114 BoNE and a non maxed BL, I'm now hitting for more damage per blow, than my old UC character did (that had about a x75 weapon and a lot more Str...).
The point I want to make with this, is if using a physical weapon, it's now very viable to put more xp into other areas (say for example a massive AMF or EC) than it used to be.
As you can now do significant damage without having to spend a significant amount of XP.

a BoNE has a higher base damage than UC (approx. 75ish)
and on the exp thing, if you were to put more exp into AMF say, your damage would be less than what it COULD be if you put that exp into st
Scy, of course if you trained everything into damage dealing stats, you'ld do more damage than if you didn't. I was trying to say that now I do way more damage in a non damage optimised set up, than I did before the change in a purely damage focuses one. So you can still do well and focus in something other than damage.
I think the base for UC is about 74, the size of a katana? So that shouldn't make too much difference.

Or you could look at it the very opposite GL. That now is more important then ever to gets lots of strength, to take advantage of the super weapons all tanks now have at their disposal. .... just saying
:) I think my point was that you could make a tank team with a 3.5 Mil AMF and still be viable, as with a good enough weapon, you would still be able to put out a lot of damage.
So if people are complaining their AMF doesn't stop DD, maybe they should train it more?
There's now a choice to do so.

Or.. you would just make a two minion ET. E= AMF. T= ToA
no DD =D
;) Minion number doesn't matter. It could be TEEE for all that it matters. :)

NOT true. AMF has an effect thats affected by how strong their DD is. So, I THINK, that means that 3 AMF's with same xp in them all combined as one with the same, would be less effective, The advantage of course would be that it would take extra rounds to get through them.
Actually, due to the increasing costs, it would be slightly (although minutly) better. :)
AMF, like the other enchantments, stacks by levels, it then works out an effect from that total.
2 * 100K AMF = 1 * 200K :)

so you have a nice big AMF, and you say, oh, look, my AMF is soo powerful
while those "uber" and "overpowered" mages can just get killed in one round of melee with a large weapon, or in however many rounds of ranged, ala seeker arrows
(proven: nymandus vs. ranger)
(proven: mikel vs. tuffbunny)

ditto to the "eh?"

What he is saying is that who really needs a large AMF when equipping a large elb with seekers does the job much better. Spend all those xp you would put into AMF into another enchantment to boost your tanks abilities. For instance GS to boost its strength.
IE: Nymandus vs Ranger

Okay, thanks for making it human. Personally, I do not see ANY reason for a tank to train AMF when the very irksome DM is sitting right there. Seeker the mage, DM the enchantments, Elven gear the tanks. You win =D
