the obvious score drop occurred, heh, but i need to outfit the team with what i own to balance his score , re-train is definetly an option.
heres what he looks like

William Wallace (EXP: 6,209) unlearn all for 25.5mil

HP: 1,948,000
ST: 20
DX: 20
Bloodlust: 41,000
Protection: 59,984

Princess Isabella (EXP: 5,514) unlearn all for 28mil

HP: 20
ST: 20
DX: 20
Evasion: 100,000
Decay: 1,000
Ethereal Chains: 2,018,000

Hamish (EXP: 4,483) unlearn all for 24.8mil

HP: 1,970,000
ST: 20
DX: 20
Decay: 1,000

Robert The Bruce (EXP: 5,691) unlearn all for 27.9mil

HP: 20
ST: 20
DX: 20
Antimagic Field: 2,086,500

maybe loking at ...

1 1/3HP 1/4DEX 1/3STR Archery (AC,EB,EC,BG,HoE,AoAC or AoM,ELB,BoNE)

2 EVA(40) 1/3HP 2/3MM (DB,MCM,AG,HoC,CoI,AoI)

3 GA (Corn,JKF)

4 AMF (Corn)

i dont know how at what point i should stop training GA, and maybe add another skill. i have crappy weapons but alot of decent mage gear, and there is always rentals!

I would suggest a strat similar to NWO:

1) MM
2) GA
3) DM/Prot
4) AS

You can then use RoS, ToE or pretty much any familiar with that strat.

Except Id move your damage dealer to the one with the highest EXP.

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] February 22 2007 4:05 PM EST

you are a forger? If so I would hold out until march and see if we get another period of free retraining.

QBsutekh137 February 22 2007 4:10 PM EST

NWO strategy is fine, just be sure you keep a lot of native HP. *smile*

Oxcha strategy is very effective and well-balanced too.

Then there's the Koy strategy, the tank/wall/leech using a ToE... Another great strategy.

There's a lot of rock/scissors/paper up here, though, so it is hard to be effective against everything...

GO PATS February 22 2007 4:28 PM EST

(I'll just put my idea in, and I will go down in order of total EXP, highest MPR at the top)

1. 1/3 HP, 1/4 ST, 1/3 DX Archery (1.00) (TSA, EB, EC, BG, HoC, AoI, ELB (big x), BoNE (big x)

2. Evasion(40) 1/3 HP, 2/3 MM (DB, EH, AG, HoC, CoI, AoI)

3. Evasion (40) 2/3 DM, 1/3 GA (EH, DB, SC?, Corn, AoF)

4. AS, Junction (1.00) (JKF, EB, EG, Corn, AoF)

#3 has evasion and DB's because he will be targeted first by SoDs and you want ExShots to miss... AoF's to help with AS & GA (no DM penalty)... EB's and EG's on #4 to help with junction cost and to help JKF with DX... I suppose #4 might want an AoM instead... Put more DX than ST on #1 and pump up the x on your ELB and BoNE... EH's on #2 & #3 because the DD resist is worth the tiny penalties to DD and EO/ED's...


TheHatchetman February 22 2007 4:35 PM EST

what would you be trying to accomplish with only 40 evasion? With such low HP, a tank would crush you in a single strike. Evasion is all or nothing when you're dealing with low HP vs. big tanks... And using AC with EB/EC kind of defeats the purpose of the AC... AC is another all or nothing thing at the top... a heavy Evasion wall behind a AoI'd damage dealer may prove extremely valuable against tanks. then you could keep the AMF nice and large, and possibly train another AMF on your 3rd minion so it looks like:

minion 1: damage dealer (probably a BL tank with VB)
minion 2: 2m+Evasion with full elven gear(maybe large DB as opposed to EB, but they'd better be HUGE)/AoF
minion 3: all AMF
minion 4: all AMF

looking at this, I'm kinda wishing i didn't withdraw my bid... :P

TheHatchetman February 22 2007 4:37 PM EST

forgot, you may want to add a base AS with a big RoS on one of the enchanters :P

muon [The Winds Of Fate] February 22 2007 10:50 PM EST

I'm not sure how well it would work in the top flight (considering DM) but I still like my strat: similar to NWO's, but without the MM minion.

AS + junction (this should be your 28mil exp char) -> SF

No wasted exp depending on the team you fight given that DM is useful against pretty much every team, as is GA, and your AS will always be useful.

I know, big DM's might be a problem ;-) But other than the occasional PoisoN, it should be a decent strat...

QBOddBird February 22 2007 11:43 PM EST

If you're going to fight, this is cool....

but if you are going to forge, do NOT retrain.

But I think you should fight!

Underage Drinking [Battle Royale] February 23 2007 12:47 AM EST

sit and bleed, i was hoping to sustain a score higher than my mpr.

Underage Drinking [Battle Royale] February 23 2007 12:49 AM EST

its so overly simple it works? what about tweaking it with mage gear?
