Quickest Kill Strategy? (in General)

{CB1}Lukeyman March 19 2007 12:51 PM EDT

In your mind, what is the quickest kill strategy?

Quad HoC archers

Single FB mage with junction FF, HoC, AGs -- would be another idea that wouldn't be affected by Evasion (but would be affected by AMF, MgS, etc.

single toa tank with sod and explosive shots. 1/4 hp 3/4 str.

3 MM mages, one FB mage in front training half FB half AS, one junctioned SF, all wearing HoC. FB mage eliminates 20HP enchanters and then 5 MMs promptly hit targets in round one - and since they are separate MMs, if the minion dies the next one is targeted.

Anyone get the impression G Beee just does not fight fair?

That would be very vulnerable to AMF OB.

Kultur - right, but who's trying to make a resistant strategy? The minions only have to last a maximum of 4 rounds. The idea is for your opponent to be dead by the end of ranged ;)

Single FB mage. Training only FB and Junction. HP would help too but not for the "quickest kill".

Equip would be pretty much just mage armor + FF and HoC.

Or the same with SoD instead of FB and ST/DX trained. How much depends on your opponents.

FF + HoC and you can figure the rest out for yourself.

Ultimately a good strategy should kill quicker than your opponent can kill you. The grey area is how many opponents you should target, best is to target everyone and beat everyone. But to target everyone and beat only a third of them is worse than to target half and beat half. So target as many different strategies as you can beat (this means leaving yourself very vulnerable to others).

Either the goal is to kill exceptionally quickly. Such as in the above examples.
Or to survive longer than your opponent can.
The former is entirely dependent on the strength of your weapon (either FB level or NW of your SoD - and I am also referring to it's attributes such as attacking multiple minions at once and facing ranged penalties or multiplied evasion) and the latter is dependent entirely on the weaknesses of your opponent's weapon of choice and your creativity.

I prefer to survive because those who appear weak are weak, those who appear strong are weaker. Simply put, opponents are weaker than I am (and you are) strong.
But that's just my opinion.

I hope these musings aren't too far off the topic of this thread, it just touched on a theory in the back of my brain and I figured it to be a good enough excuse to ramble once more.

one huge ELB that thing of freed will do it, a ToA, HoC, some seekers, archery, and a single minion.
And watch the overpowered ness of the elb show its ugly face once more.
