2-Minion Strategies (in Contests)

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 19 2008 1:23 PM EST

I'm going to start an NCB in 3 weeks or so, and I'm looking for some two minion strategies, so say 300k to the person who can give me the best idea for one. (Has to be two minion, if it's really good, then maybe 3-4 minion.)

And if I can't find any, then here are the strats I'm looking at:
Strat #1:

1st Minion
Corn, BoF, AoL, RoS

2nd Minion
CoC / HP / AP
Standard mage gear, AoI, SoC

Strat #2:

1st Minion
AMF (or EC) / GA
Corn, BoF, AoL

2nd Minion
Junction / AS
Hal, BGs, AoM, EBs, AoF, HoC

Comments on those strategies, and new ideas will be welcome. :)

The first strategy is very similar to what I'm using (But haven't yet gathered the equipment for).

I'm using Fireball and an FF instead of CoC and RoS, though.

Here is the strategy I am using

1st Minion

AMF (fairly small to counter decay)
GA (put the rest of XP here)
Corn, Spell Boosters, Amulet of Leadership,
Shadow Cloak, BoF

2nd Minion

Decay (base is fine)
AS (rest of XP here)
AoF, IF, DB, Noldorin Spellcasters,
Shield of Capacity

1st minion:

Corn, BoF, AoF

2nd minion
Shocking Grasp
HoC, AoF, BoF, NSC, IF

That's what I used before I stopped playing (Not SG, though). It was really effective! It's possible (likely) that I'll go back to it in a while. I'm not doing it at the moment as I can't afford the equipment.

1st. Minion.
Train half in fireball and half in ablative shield.

2nd minion
Phantom link

3rd minion
Phanton link wall

4th minion phantom link wall.

I think a strat like this would be fun. Just think of as a charactor like GoD with 4 killslots with a ton of hp =D.

1st minion
CoC mage
Wall Armor

2nd minion
AoF and elven gear.

For your strat #2, I'd recommend giant strength on the first more than GA. I hear from a lot of people that Hals are useless in melee, so you might as well take advantage of them as much as possible while they are still useful, and adding more strength is a great way to do that.

Personally I'm liking OB's and Ranger's ideas. (Ranger CM'ed me an idea for a 2 minion team, one training MM/HP, another training AS/DM w/ an SF). Titan's is also good, and thanks to everyone who's entering so far!

#1 Full AS
Enchanter gear and/or some leadership stuff

#2 AMF/GA/Junction
I would not worry about exp spread here on this minion. My 4 minion team uses 1 minion with half AMF/GA and it's working beautifully. Junction either an Ice familiar (my personal favorite because its the most damage, or an Electric Familiar. You may have problems with other AMF/GA with the Ice, but since you have one minion focusing all on AS, it shouldn't be a big problem. EF is pretty solid all around.

Don't go the RoS route, it's not very efficient compared to a familiar strat. I don't really understand the whole RoS craze right now ><

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 20 2008 7:13 AM EST

I have decided to go with my own Hal strat. So, I'll be giving a 100k to Titan, Ranger, and Rawr, whose strats I liked the best. Rave get's an honorary 100k for his GS suggestion.
Thanks everyone!
