GS and Haste, two weaknesses? (in General)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 15 2006 8:19 PM EDT

The XP put into GS and Haste (it has just hit me!) has two counters, to most everything else's one. GS and Haste can be reduced by both DM and EC. Do you think it would be reaosnable to give GS and Haste some form of protection from one type of a smaller protection to both? Or is it ok for them to be coutnered by both? :/

They both get boosted by bonus giving items. Pretty fair if you ask me. You just need to make sure you train them as high as you can. Or wear a RoS.

They get dropped by axbow and exbow as well.....

I've been using haste for a while now and it's really surprising how few people there are with either DM or EC big enough to drop it down enough to neutralise it.

When I used GS & Haste on Dogs of War, they were never that high (maybe 200-250k, at the highest point, after boosts). Out of a fav opponents list of 30+, and about 8 "big kids" who beat on me regularly, only 2 or 3 could dispel them to any great effect...

I think that unless we see a lot of really high level DM popping up, they are pretty good as is. :)

they also don't get the penalty that AS does

But extra HP is a big help where as an enchanter with plenty of ST & DX is much harder to make efficient use of...

HP is HP. It's job is to get dropped by damage. There isn't another skill/spell that reduces your AS score apart from DM.

Haste and GS could (potentially) get reduced by both DM and then EC on the same team.

While as an ED they get boosted by a Corn, they don't get any benefit from +STR/DEX armour.

they are deadly on a 4 minion ToA tank team.

who would want to go Single Tank team? when you can go 4 minion and get basically the same stats with enchanters? just less HP?

and as edy said, there is no penalty to GS and Haste.

The best usage of GS/Haste.

Transformer teams aren't that great anymore.

QBOddBird September 16 2006 12:30 PM EDT

Transformers!™ weren't that great to begin with. Especially that Bumblebee guy, whatever his name was...
