Completely anti-tank? (in General)


MissingNo July 22 2008 4:22 PM EDT

I was thinking about moving away from the MM/SF combination and going completely anti-tank. I've untrained most of my MM leaving only a small one to deal with little minions and put most of that exp into HP/evasion.

Instead of my MM mage I've turned the SF into an EF and it has become my main damage dealer. The only problem so far is my EF is way below my MTL so it's not doing as much damage as it should.

Anyway, does anyone have any suggestions on how I could tweak this strategy to make it better? I get a 184 effect of evasion as it is now, and have roughly 2m HP. The MM is only at like 800k.

EC to replace AMF?

Just a small AMF to take care of small decays. An EC that big won't make a difference.

AS+GA+kill slots+MM pwns tanks... and just about all single minions :P

I was thinking with a high enough evasion I'd be unhittable. And all that extra HP just in case. And I really like SG, so I wanna use my EF.

"I was thinking with a high enough evasion I'd be unhittable."

You would be right.

/me spanks Joker for liking SG.... o.O

Why go anti-tank?

There are less and less of us out there. Best bet is to go anti-mage with tons of AMF and a mage wall.

He's catching all the new tanks when everybody else goes anti-mage :P

I guess no one has suggestions?

If you want to go anti-tank, do Evasion + RoBF.

I hate myself for even suggesting this, as it is the ultimate anti-my-team strategy.

insta up your EF

Why not RoBF?

MissingNo July 23 2008 9:20 PM EDT

RoBF on the evasion minion or on the enchanter? If I did go RoBF I probably won't need AS then.

Then that's good, right? See, you are getting advice after all!

MissingNo July 23 2008 10:34 PM EDT

Yeah. But that doesn't answer anything though. XD

QBsutekh137 July 23 2008 10:35 PM EDT

There are no answers, that's why it's a fun game, overall.

Shapoopie July 23 2008 10:37 PM EDT

And I think with all the talk over the past couple of months about how Evasion is so deadly for tanks, I think what Tchoob said is basically what you need. And yes, that is advice.

Anti-tank seems to be working well for my latest NCB (I only chose this route due to lack of gear and funds...) With the abundance of single-ToA archers (still!) and a new wave of Halidon Familiar teams, RoBF and Evasion is working wonders!

My setup at around 1.25m MPR looks like this. Notice the lack of HP due to the fact that I do not get hit very much by physical damage.

Hit Points 600,000
Evasion 4,582,000 2,900,000 196 163
Antimagic Field 1,500,000 1,500,000 ?

I have been able to keep a very high challenge bonus (80-100%) for the entirety of my NCB thus far. My next test will be the SFBM... though something tells me RoBF is more effective at being anti-tank.

OK. JUst changed to it. I seem to be able to at least keep everyone on my fight list, as well as add a person. This is sweet. If only I had a bigger RoBF though..

get some dbs my friend

MissingNo July 25 2008 11:45 AM EDT

I don't have enough money to get really big DBs. The EBs I have now are boosting my evasion by a lot, so they're more useful at the moment.
