Which is better? (in General)
June 4 2007 1:16 AM EDT
I was wondering which is better for my wall tank: VB or BoTH
Currently I've got this 2 with me:
A Vorpal Blade [63x250] (+47) 4,550,355
A Blade of Thuringwethil [73x303] (+28) 3,027,465, and I can get it forged up or trade it for a bigger one.
My UC minion normally manages to reduce the dexterity of the opponent's tank to negatives (at least I think) so hitting should not be much of a problem even with the low dexterity of the wall tank. The UC minion is managing about twice the damage of the wall tank and I'm thinking of boosting the strength of the wall tank to just below the UC minion (so that exbow and axbow will still seek my UC minion and miss). This should allow it to do decent damage since I'm mainly defensive and I want to be more offensive.

This is the character I'm talking about:
I tend to suggest VB for walls...
Walls live longer, which tends to pit them against ToE heavy AC teams, therefore the VB shines.

If you weren't a UC team I would've suggested the BoTH instead, because It's a wall so it strives on HP if it lands any hits it can gain a lot helping it survive longer, which is cool. But novice brings up an excellent point, as a UC tank you find it extremely difficult to kill Walls/High AC/ToE teams.
I think you should use the VB, it'll help against those *defensive* teams, meaning it'll give it more chance to hurt them back, seeing as you're defensive too.

So far 2 counts for the VB. I noticed that my wall tank has a lot of HP at the end of most battles so I'm also leaning towards the VB to do more damage against defensive teams.
it depends on people you attack really, if your opponents are mostly above the break-even point for the VB-BoTH then VB, else use both

Surely assembler is for real players :-p
Assembler? Mnemonics are for weaklings ;-P Straight up Hex, mate!
You won't need a VB for a long time. Novice is right, but only during end-game play. Since you're primarily a wall, you have tons of DX-reducing armor on. Therefore, DX isn't much of a concern, so stick with that and ditch 1-handed weapons. Go with either a MH, or a bone if you also train PL and/or don't deal enough damage. Later on, you will have to consider switching to a VB.
Er... your character is retired?
