RoBF change now makes single E a possibilty! ;) (in General)
Late night, I'm a little worse for wear, but the new 'active' RoBF damage makes the possibilty of a single GA E team viable, as it's now able to kill no weapon enchanters. :)
Something to think about! ;)

We can just train a base FB to not take active damage from the RoBF ;)
How will a base FB do that?

hehe I personally think this strat will rock LOL
1/6 AMF / dispel
ROBF + DB + NSG + HOC + AOF
ROBF +AMF against mages and all those super buffed evasion against tanks. Given the right MPR, should have quite a potential to be shouted at "ZOMG THIS IS overpowered!!"

Don't the minion need to try to attack the RoBF minion in order to get burnt? I thought that was how it will work now.

in melee rounds, the RBF wearer burns the first minion of the enemy (unless protected by an AOI) automatically for a nice amount of damage, dependent on the RBF's level.
September 23 2007 10:45 AM EDT
oh, that's how it works now. Interesting. Maybe I'll try it out and see how well it works now.

Does AMF protect against the RBF?
September 23 2007 1:00 PM EDT
no it does not :) neither does GA
Now, Evasion +DB + AoF with RBF, or Evasion + DB + AoI with RBF?

Why would you choose EB?
September 24 2007 9:09 AM EDT
...Because they give an insane boost to Evasion, and are dirt cheap to upgrade to give that insane boost...
All depending on the Evasion level, of course. Higher the better with EBs.
Ash, I must admit I'm tihnking of emulating you with Evasion + EB + EG + AoF. :)
It's ToA archer all over again :P

Just wait for the posts about how it should be nerfed....
At least people might just leave the ToA alone for a while....
September 24 2007 10:30 AM EDT
nope i still think TOA's PTH should be edited to same as DB/ROBF + evasion
September 24 2007 10:31 AM EDT
I agree. And it's even worst in my opinion: I see no way to counter GL's strat except by using a bigger RoBF.
I think the obvious solution around the problem is to allow GA to retaliate damage to the minion wearing the RoBF. That would obligate RoBF characters to at least choose between DM and AMF and also to train a respectable amount of HP.

My comment was in response to Monsieur Ash's post about "ToA archer all over again".

A big ToE can protect against the RBF, but actually killing an evasion/RBF minion seems like a tricky thing to do.
Evasion blocking tanks, RBF blocking DD spells and other RBFs AND ex shot splash damage.

"A big ToE can protect against the RBF"
The ToE only provides a way to obtain stalemate. Not a win or even a draw.

As much as I love my new toy, Talion is most probably right. GA should retaliate.
As is, I am pretty sure one can make an invincible team using the RoBF.
