'Phantom Link Wall' in Wiki (in General)
August 24 2006 4:29 PM EDT
Can we please stop calling this a wall? It's only causing confusion, as a wall and a phantom link minion have very different properties to be effective (the never ending need for HP is the only thing they have in common).
I am definitely with bartjan on this. There has got to be something else to call it. Battery... something lol. I like battery :)
So instead of WM. BM

we had battery for a minion wearing an AoI, and training PL and HP, so it never got directly hit.
that was sefton's idea and name.
I know. Thanks Sefton! I stole your idea.

so just to clarify, thats a PL battery not whats in the wiki.
there is not much to call it.
PL Meatshield? it's still there to die and take damage.
or would that be the same as calling it a wall?
A wall is a minion with High AC. Sticking PL on it defeats the purpose of having such high AC.
I'm with Bart on this. :D
Been calling them PL Walls in chat for quite some time....
Find there are 2 types in use among newbs: the PL E with little or no HP being pure AS(casted or casting) otherwise improper use due to lack of HP and the PL W which is all HP because some don't think so clearly. Mocking PL use because there isn't a good PL Wall strat for newbs or made by newbs, rightfully so mind you. The PL E is probably the only one recommendable and I wouldn't call that a wall.
Use wall because we can't agree on anything else. Other name I thought about was PyLon which seems somewhat fitting. Or dumb it down to PLon which covers the use. Sponge is 2 letters too long. ;)

PL minions are as much Walls as minions with Direct Damage spells are Tanks...
