RoBF change now makes single E a possibilty! ;) (in General)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 22 2007 8:20 PM EDT

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! ;)

Kong Ming September 22 2007 8:45 PM EDT

We can just train a base FB to not take active damage from the RoBF ;)

AdminNightStrike September 23 2007 12:30 AM EDT

How will a base FB do that?

Lumpy Koala September 23 2007 10:33 AM EDT

hehe I personally think this strat will rock LOL

1/3 evasion
1/3 CoC
1/6 HP
1/6 AMF / dispel


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!!"

Kong Ming September 23 2007 10:40 AM EDT

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.

QBRanger September 23 2007 10:41 AM EDT


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.

Kong Ming 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.

Talion September 23 2007 12:58 PM EDT

Does AMF protect against the RBF?

lostling September 23 2007 1:00 PM EDT

no it does not :) neither does GA

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 23 2007 1:52 PM EDT

Now, Evasion +DB + AoF with RBF, or Evasion + DB + AoI with RBF?

lostling September 23 2007 1:53 PM EDT


AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 24 2007 3:06 AM EDT

EB or DB?

QBOddBird September 24 2007 9:03 AM EDT

Why would you choose EB?

Flamey September 24 2007 9:09 AM EDT

Using Evasion.

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] September 24 2007 9:16 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.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 24 2007 9:52 AM EDT

Ash, I must admit I'm tihnking of emulating you with Evasion + EB + EG + AoF. :)

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] September 24 2007 10:24 AM EDT

It's ToA archer all over again :P

QBJohnnywas September 24 2007 10:26 AM EDT

Just wait for the posts about how it should be nerfed....

At least people might just leave the ToA alone for a while....

lostling September 24 2007 10:30 AM EDT

nope i still think TOA's PTH should be edited to same as DB/ROBF + evasion

Talion 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.

Talion September 24 2007 10:34 AM EDT

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

QBJohnnywas September 24 2007 10:35 AM EDT

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.


Talion September 24 2007 10:38 AM EDT

"A big ToE can protect against the RBF"

The ToE only provides a way to obtain stalemate. Not a win or even a draw.

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] September 24 2007 10:50 AM EDT

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.
