Here is my particular original strat that I like very much ^_^ and I am partially using it atm, and Need the AoJ (That I'm renting from Henk as is) for it ^_^

4 minion, works best if one is much bigger than the rest...

Wall with about 2 mil nat hp trained and over 350 ac, also has AP trained, and if you so wish SS. Equips of AoAC, Cml, AC, SC, HoD, TG, MS, T Shirt ^_^

Enchanter with about 5-10 mil AS trained. Equips of Corn, BoE, and AoF

Enchanter with about 5mil DM trained. Equips of Corn, BoE, and Aof

Enchanter with about 5 mil GA trained. Equips of HoC, NsC, AoJ, and a Big SF or Hal ^_^ (if Hal take off the NsC for BG)

Strat is quite solid against the splash damage from Sod and some Elb damage... Should hit max GA if GA isn't dispelled, should also have around 4 mil hp per minion with almost 6 mil on front Wall. Awesome reducer of spread damage and can dish out some damage back ^_^

Second strat is 3 minion

Enchanter with 10-15 mil AS trained. Equips of Corn, Aof, and Of course a huge Ros

Enchanter with GA trained. Equips of Corn, BoE, Aof

Enchanter with DM trained. Equips of Corn BoE, Aof

The Ultimate Stalemate Strat ^_^ Should have huge amounts of HP and should kill any damage dealers in no time... Could also switch out the RoS for an Robf ^_^

Note: strategy relies on unproven/currently nonexistent junction effects

1: AoJ, HG's, EB's, SoC, HoE
-Familiar: Jigorokano Familiar
-Skills: Bloodlust, VA

2: AoF, NSCs, SBs, Corn, BoE
-Skills: SS trained to ~10% of the JKF's HP, AMF, base Decay

3: AoF, NSCs, SBs, Corn, BoE
-Skills: Ablative Shield, base Decay

4: AoF, EBs, BoE, EC
-Stats: HP
-Skills: PL

Obviously, the strategy depends on having the Jig survive until melee. Minion 4 helps ensure this by soaking up all the ranged damage, while minion 2 uses a big (boosted) AMF to help deter Fireballs and Magic Missiles. Minions 2 and 4 are supporting enchanters, obviously. Minion 2's SS is undertrained a bit but the Corn, SBs, and BoE should more than counter this, so SS will be at full effect for your barefisted ninja minion. Minion 3's AS is a pretty obvious, boring, and extremely effective choice. The AoF's on 2/3/4 are there to boost the AS even more, creating a much better blanket to allow the Jig to survive until he can start crunching.

Minion 1's equipment is optimized for Junctioning. It's pretty standard stuff for a UC minion. I realize Bloodlust currently seems to not affect Jigs, but I hope that gets fixed. Assuming it DOES work, VA ought to be trained to the highest Bloodlust-boosted hulksmash your Jig does, so he can leech a ton of health in the first round (hopefully bringing him over his max, or restoring some of the health he lost during ranged). Then it's just a matter of letting your only source of damage (unless you count AMF, but I sure don't) pound away at the opposition, hopefully outdamaging the other side and healing enough to survive thanks to VA.

The build suffers significantly from DM and has a weakness to magic damage. The PL wall is there to help ease the DM weakness (my original idea was to have a 3rd enchanter), and the big AMF should help decrease the damage the team sustains from spread damage spells at least. SG is still quite scary.

Shrug, just something I came up with that might be fun to try.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] March 23 2009 2:00 PM EDT

nice build goodfish

More builds the merrier!

blackshadowshade March 23 2009 2:14 PM EDT

OK, what about this? (also based on as-yet not programmed AoJ features)

Single minion, no intrinsics, no skills, no spells, no tattoo. Oh, and an AoJ, naturally.

Wins every time! ;)

Andy March 23 2009 5:45 PM EDT

Four minions.

1 trains AS the others train DM

All minions wear corns and SB and 3 wear AoF.

One minion AoJ an IF to NSC and SB.

This should win because I made this in the five seconds I had XP

Salvador Dali March 23 2009 6:05 PM EDT

archer + AoJed Hal
both archer and hal benefit from the archer equips, therefore making this extra-efficient.

Wizard'sFirstRule March 23 2009 8:32 PM EDT

you get maximum bonus when fighting up. and there is no such thing as a tank-only team, so I guess it is targeting mages. To beat mage, you want MgS Wall with PL, a AMF minion and throw in a third with GA and a RBF.
1st: 100% AMF
2nd: 100% GA
3nd: RBF with AoI, train 100% AS
4th: train a smallish PL, and rest HP, Max wall gear.

Admiralkiller [Cult of the Valaraukar] March 23 2009 9:18 PM EDT

Leave my AoJ on a storage character and let it rot.
That is my strat.

Goodfish March 23 2009 10:17 PM EDT

I don't think that will win you the AoJ, Admiralkiller. ;)

Unappreciated Misnomer March 23 2009 10:49 PM EDT

that was funny though Admiral.

first minion casts MM
wearing HoC,SB,BoE,AG,Coi,AoL

second minion casts GA
wearing Hal,AoJ,BG,HoC,DB

third minion casts AS
wearing Corn,SB,BoE,AoF,NSC,EC

it is just for fun and it really needs DM to live longer at higher levels unfortunately, but the concentration of experience is superb lol

bump for good measure.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] March 25 2009 3:15 AM EDT

this contest is not going as I hoped it would.

winner winner March 25 2009 12:53 PM EDT

First minion PL wall with EB, EG, TSA, MGS, EC, SoC, AoI
second minion enchanter training AMF and SS Corn, SB, BoE, AoF
third minion enchanter training AS IF, AoL, DB, NSC, HoC
fourth minon wall all exp into HP, with full wall gear

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] March 25 2009 1:04 PM EDT

How could I not suggest;

Single Minion training UC and ED/ED of your choice.

Junctioning HG, HoE, EB

The idea would be to boost your Jigs UC to massive levels, by Junctioning over Trained UC and getting the effects from Dex increasing items and HG twice.

This would abuse Uc's naturally high PTH (1.2 time the Effect).

With an 8 Mil Trained UC and an 8 Mil UC on your Jig, you've hit a +360 weapon *before* and item bonuses!


Mikel March 25 2009 1:46 PM EDT

3 Minion Team.

First Minion
Train HP
Pure Wall (Wall Gear to get your AC up to over 300),
Use Adam/SC/AoAC/Tulks/T-Shirt/HoD/MS/CML or DB's if you can get away with it, so you can slow Tanks down as well.
This will slow the RoBF Down and front hitting Mages.

Second Minion
Train AMF

3rd Minion
Another Wall in the back
Train HP/PL

This one will slow people down hitting you from the Front and will regenerate HP to keep him alive longer.

It could use some tweaking, also interchangeable with the Jig.

QBRanger March 25 2009 2:16 PM EDT

2 minions

First archer, using elb. Equipping TSA, AoM, DB, MgS, EC, BG, HoC

Second tattoo holder using HF. Equipping Corn, BoM, AoJ, BG, EB.
Learning DM and evasion.

The enchanter in front, the archer in back.

bump again, sunday last day!

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- March 28 2009 1:39 PM EDT

Four minion team. Three Walls and an AOJ Familiar.

For simplicity I will say Hal.

Minion 1 and 2 are Hp/PL only with full wall equipment. TSA/MGS/ as high AC as possible.

Minion 3 is the AoJ minion wearing full Hal boosting items.

Minion 4 is another wall setup like 1 and 2.

Minion three will need a base fireball to make the hal spawn in front of it as opposed to behind it.

You setup the PL levels so that it forces the kill order of the minions to look like this.

1-4 kill order.

So the farthest back minion will die first, then the front one, then the one with the Hal equiped, then the 2ed one (in front of the hal) then the Hal.

With really high AC // MGS (high dmg reduction) plus the TSA on three minions will basically give the Hal as much time as possible to deliver as much pain as possible. The only way he will be taking damage is from GA.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] March 29 2009 10:20 AM EDT

slowly getting to a draw

[P]Mitt March 29 2009 11:35 AM EDT

Single Minion, AoJ:
Minion Equipment:

Minion Trains:

Strategy qualifiers:
The JKF won't hit until melee: Therefore in order to have it survive through ranged, it will train AMF to lower any DD spell (since they have a 100% accuracy) It will train Haste to boost its already-impressive DX, and combined with Evasion and DBs, will make it an extremely hard target to hit during ranged.

The rest of the items serve to boost its UC, which (combined with Haste) will allow it multiple hits during melee to quickly take apart its victims.

[P]Mitt March 29 2009 11:36 AM EDT

Sorry for the double post:
I submitted my entry before reading all of the other entries;

It seems like my strategy is similar to GL's except in a couple respects. If it is not distinct and unique enough, I withdraw it.
