Combine Vampuric Aura + Bloodlust? (in General)

MissingNo July 20 2008 11:55 PM EDT

Hm, just an idea. Since apparently a lot of people think melee tanks need some buffing, how about combining vampuric aura and bloodlust? Not too many people use VA, I think, and it has the potential to be a really good skill. But who cares about VA when the BL is necessary for tanks? Well, if you combine them into vampuric lust or blood aura or whatever, that'd make the melee tank more viable.

Bloodlusted Minions inflict tremendous damage with physical attacks during melee rounds.Often used along with VA. BL has reduced effect when its level is low relative to ST.

From the train page.

"Often used along with Vampiric Aura (VA)."

The BL are already good as it is. But the VA could definately use a buff!

Or you can just use a BoTH or MH :-/

Bloodlust is just fine as a skill.

VA is only unloved because there are more loved EDs - as a non-DM'able skill, it would become extremely overpowered.

In short, fail.

Oh, right. I was under the wrong impression VA was a skill. =p Nevermind. Actually, I mean, if tanks are so underpowered as people seem to be advocating, why not?

hehe but making VA a skill is kinda interesting.

I use BL, VA and a MH :P
