New Minion Ideas.. (in General)

INDColtsFan18 June 24 2008 6:47 PM EDT

Pretty soon im going to be recruiting a new minion. I need some ideas as to what kind of strat I should go for.
What are some good 2 minion teams?
What gear do i need?
Any advice helps!

I vote you go quick kill.

Junction + HF
Magic Missile Mage

Lots of HP, attacking from the front and the back, and the HF has the PTH to hit past the average Evasion. Plus you are not exclusively vulnerable to either AMF or EC, which is an invaluable trait to have.

Obviously, I believe the day of the dual damage dealer team is here ;)

I want to keep FB,
would an EM team work?

with say HF on the enchanter.

then fb mage with full gear.

how would junction benefit me, i dont really understand it? So any gear my enchanter is wearing would transfer to the familiar?

sorry for 3rd post. but here is what weahve came up with in chat.

Minion 1: Enchanter

Steel Familiar
Altar's Gloves
Amulet of Leadership

Dispel Magic
Minion 2: Mage

Mithril Chain Mail
Cloak of the Istari
Displacement Boots
Noldorin Spellcasters
Helm of Clearsight
Amulet of Invisibility

Ok, I need some more advice on this strategy, anything would help.

What OB suggested sounds solid, too. OB's one of those crazies who sees the strats that will just be ownage.

However, I would go with what Gun said and put your FB Mage in front with an AoI on. The only disadvantage to this would be that SoD-users would fire their Ex Shot right at your Enchanter (or familiar; I'm not sure which goes in front, but neither of them have Evasion), and the splash would hit your FB mage anyway.

Also, what are you using Dispel Magic for? To combat Guardian Angel and Ablative Shield? I suppose I can't think of a better EO for you to use.
Speaking of Ablative Shield, you could train that part way on your E, too, if you wanted. It would help both your mage and familiar to last that much longer, plus it may help spread damage for an extra round or two (against FB or CoC). Of course, the AS could be dispelled, but DM is the least-trained stat in the game (I think?) and it seems like single minions tend to use it (I.E. people you will fry with concentrated FB damage + MM damage)

thank you, yeah i will put the mage first so it should end up being
MFE, as in mage familiar enchanter. i think thats how it would go....
