Nearing the end of my NCB... (in General)

Relic January 19 2008 4:54 PM EST

Hey all, I am nearing the end of my NCB. One more day in fact and I am faced with a decision.

1. Save/Buy enough CB2 to buy more minions and re-vamp my strategy (losing valuable MPR in the process), each additional minion is 25.5 mil. With the RoBF I have been stagnant for quite some time.

2. Continue fighting single and keep falling further and further behind the pack and eventually drop from the 7 BA rate to 8 BA rate.

3. Or, try selling my character and start another NCB. However this time, I would be a single UC minion or single CoC minion. Mainly because I would like to be able to use a RoE to help boost my exp. What would you guys suggest?

Another Run, considering Horseguy has proved that 6/20 regen is possible with NCB...

Another thing to take into account is the following:

Purchasing 3 minions would cost: 25,508,102 * 3 = 76,524,306
The additional MPR gain would be: 1,524,346 * 1.34 = 2,042,623

So, for 76.5 mil CB2, I can buy just over 500K MPR. That seems a bit spendy to me. So, another run might be the thing to do.

Do another run, but you absolutely must have a named RoE worked into you strat. I am happy with my NCB, but heres what I would suggest (or what I would have done differently):

Single minion up to 500k mpr, then hire depending on how strong you need your supporting minions. Only have clan members in your fightlist regardless of your challenge bonus. I have learned, unfortunately rather late in my NCB, that clan characters give much higher rewards then non clan characters. I easily cost myself over 100k mpr because of overlooking this.

Be prepared to spend about ~55 mil CB to crack 6/20.

I would suggest spending less money on Ex Shots, no matter what you choose to do. For real.
