beautiful strat builds (in General)
October 30 2008 1:07 AM EDT
:) name me some.... and the reasons :)
My character has the best strategy I've ever came up with since playing the game, but it seems like I'm missing something obvious that I can fix. I suck at strats though (my NUB got me to a 400k char, who got me enough money to buy a 1m mpr forger.)
I get beat by teams with larger tanks, high evasion, or a really high G.A. (it has to overcome an effective 3.8m DM.)

heavy tank ftw! No seriously... It's looked at as an incredibly difficult and ineffective strat, but it's the second most OP thing in CB atm (first being SG :P)
Obviously any combo with AS, GA and a DD on 4 minions. Just to get the ball rolling. Works great with familiars or RoBF
Single Minion, AS+DM with a junctioned Hal is a great growth plan right now. It kills SFBM with ease, as well as ED based teams. Train minor FB to kill slots.
I'll think of more later...
I think Hal is pretty OP right now.
not really, a large Hal doesn't even compare to the damage of my IF. In the higher ups, Hal kinda hits a dead end.
A 8.25m level Halidon does scratches compared to a DD familiar of the same level.

I'd say single Archer until 500k MPR and then add in a Enchanter-wall with the new AP trained.
single minion with 3 meatshields sounds nice right now :)

I really loved my first single UC guy. I bought an single FB mage, swapped the FB for UC and chucked a ToA and Helms on him. Up until that point very few people had focused the xp concentration into UC - it was the weakest strat apparently. I'd wondered how it would work if you treated it the same way you did a DD spell. And with great results. Within a week or two of starting it the first UC is OP threads started appearing. Lovely.
single minion, named RoE with 3 base minions, train a big AS, with a small damage source on the main minion somewhere
Anything with either CoC of UC as the only damage source. If it works well, it's even better :P
My favorite strategy (yet probably horribly ineffective):
Any Tat you want (perhaps RBF or familiar)
AP <-- used to be Evasion
Heavy-ish gear (MS, MCM, CML -- or SB)
I don't know why, but it's always been my favorite strat ever since I started playing CB. (I actually did run pretty succesfully a while back.)

:) its interesting to see that most people dont go for OP builds and stuff like that...
Hatchet did it...
reasons: getting the W against Mikel
I really like my sandwich build. I like it because it's layered. And because it uses a JKF. And because it's compact; I don't have to deal with 4 minions and balancing their XP distribution based on what's important and whatever. It's elegant, I think.

I love my PL/Wall, MM, MM, AS 4 minion team. Beautiful, not in the least. Powerful.....well I think we can all agree that MM is the least used of all the DD spells. But i've been playing the same team for over 2 years now, and nothing else I can come up with suits my gameplay style.

I beat Mikel too heh. Heavy RoBF ftw.
