Single minion or three? (in General)
Is there really any reason I should stay as a single minion?
I thought I'd get XP concetration. But, with three minions, I can just about keep the same level of concentration, if I specialise them.
At the moment, I have a single minion with roughly;
Now, if I split the EO/ED onto another two minions I could get;
GA: 33.3% (A little high here, but I can add in a little EC!)
No PL, no AoI.
My tanks is a bit smaller, but I gain two 20HP meat shields. Very usefull for facing the large damage ELBows can now do during range, plus I'll get a little EC on top.
Is there any reaon why I should stay as a single minion? :/
Plus, if the two 20HP minions do last to melee, any Tank hitting them will kill them instantly, but have to suffer burning from the Aura of my RBF.

I don't see one. Other then the cost and the adding of PR with no gain in stats. lol so I guess there is a reason. On the + side... you will be a better forger :)
The first two minions take care of BL tanks with ELB's...sweet!

I'd stay as one, but that's because I'm cheap. That's just one Corn you've gotta buy instead of two ;)

Well, adding EC might help lower damage dealt to you. But at the same time, you're losing a lot of hit points from your tank (12.2%). Which might not be a good thing considering your dex and str are really low, so you really don't deal as much direct damage as other builds.
I would go into detail, but I don't know whether ToA tanks (whether it be a 1 minion or 4 minion team) die from GA/RoBF before killing you.
You could do 2 minions easy though.
EO and ED. I could do two minions.
It wouldn't really lower my Main's HP, and I could still add a small EC to him, while keeping a 70/30 AMF/GA split on the other minion.
Only need one corn then. ;)
At least it's one round versus massive ELBows! And if I'm lucky, the second minion might even live past a couple of FB rounds, with the Aura reduction to a spread FB from my RBF.
And it's another pain for BL tanks if we start the fight in melee.
Two minions it is then! ;)
