archery tanks (in General)

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] May 23 2007 12:51 AM EDT

nope they arent overpowered at all, just got my butt kicked by a 1minion archery tank who is over 100k mpr under me, he 3 times triple hitted me and every time with 1 to 2mil dam, all my 3minions and my IF where in - 4mil hp, that isnt normal!!

I'm assuming you are referring to The Force, in which case, no, it is not normal at all. Did ya notice he's equipping Platypus Phlegm [6x10400] (+250) (Elven Long Bow) $230,072,556. His PR takes a hit, but I'm sure he isnt farmed for many CPs :P

LOL, that Elb is not normal at all. I guess you should remove him from your list and try to rent it next time it is available.

Lol, I have no problems with him; a nice addition to my fightlist!

:) think he should use seekers

the archery items and spells are to powerfull, a 500k mpr char that does 1.5mil dam isn't normal its overpowered i tell ya!

Which is why people are trying to explain to you that the damage is coming from the massive ELB... It's not normal for a 600k MPR char to have a huge bow like that. Thats the BIGGEST bow in the game... It's got the largest NW, the largest X and the largest + out of all ELBs...

AoD: if a player invests that amount of money to his team, so be it :)

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] May 24 2007 3:20 PM EDT

i know its the ELB just pointing out that tanks are overpowered

He ends up with over 2 mil PR, I'd say he's getting robbed.

Adminedyit [Superheros] May 24 2007 6:08 PM EDT

ahhh, remember the good old days? when just FB was overpowered. :-)

BootyGod May 24 2007 6:13 PM EDT

I remember how I still insisted on using a VB and CoC against it rofl.

200k on a NUB.... those were the days rofl...

edyit, remember when you bit? ;P

And about this. If it's overpowered it will be changed. Leave the poor, broken, bleeding horse alone.

For the 90th time, the elb is not overpowered.

As other have said, there are quite a few ways to beat one.

1) Massive evasion, put all your xp into evasion and you likely may possible be missed. Of course if they use a TOA your dead meat.

2) Massive EC, put all your xp into EC. However if they have a TOA, the PTH and str will likely mean the EC is worthless, since with 0 dex they will hit you, and with a small amount of str will put you into the negative millions.

3) Use a familiar for that 5th kill spot. But then again when you enter melee rounds your down to 1 minion vs virtually their entire healed character, minus any damage you have done with your puny MM or FB.

4) Just avoid that character and cringe every time you see him/her farming you.

5) Spend countless cb2 on 400 AC and use a TOE and pray it stops just enough damage to have your wounded character fight an almost fully healed one in melee.

So please refrain from such an obvious post to give yourself an advantage. It is very childlike and uncool also.

/me loves to use sarcasm whenever possible.

i know a secret no one else knows.......

Ranger loves ELBS.

isnt it awful?

i mean ELBS, for crying out loud!!!!

You know what else.......?

The best way to kill an archer, is with an archer

errm nope :) accually all you need to do is balance your skills ;) remember for a fact that the higher you lvl a skill the more little the return is... eg 10 exp per lvl diversify and you will see higher returns... i wouldnt go into the maths here but it IS possible to be more efficient then a single tank.... TOA or not ;)
