Single Minion Strat? (in General)
Any ideas? Roughly 24 million levels to work with. Ideas have to be good enough for competitive play. I can't afford to go tank and the strat must use a tattoo.
Example possible strat:
5 mil HP
15 mil MM
2 mil dex
2 mil evasion
Equip a RoBF, EBs, HoC, NSC, AoF and SoC.
Who knows? If there is actually a strat I like I might give you a prize :D
Eh, GA would probably kill you too fast with that strat. Although I wouldn't mind that ;)

Single CoC mage.
12m hp 12m CoC (maybe 11:13)
Tattoo of Endurance
use AoAC,NSC,CML,MS,HoD (or HoC, but I'm going for more dmg reduction),

5mil DX 5mil ST 10mil AS 5mil evasion small AMF (yes I realise this is 25 mil lvls, just do the math to scale to 24 because I don't want to)
Junction Jig familiar
equip EB, HGs, HoE, AoM, SoC, MH and choice of ranged. probably either SoD, Axbow or Exbow

just fixing, the 2nd strategy should not have AoM as items listed, since we're junctioning the Jig
Yea, wear 2 amulets at once ;)
Equipping RoBF, DBs, HoC, MSK, BGs, AoM, and BoM.
Put about +100 on your bow, then the rest into x's. This shouldn't be too expensive of a tank.

NSC, RoBF, SoC, DBs, Corn, AoF
Try to kill off the damage dealers with GA, then let your RoBF take its time during the 50 melee rounds eating the other team away.
Hehe, I like that strat OB, it is very similar to the one we had originally came up with before we started that char.

A big Decay would help a lot too, Decay + GA = _really_ vicious.
7mil AMF, 7mil GA,AP, base decay and 10mil hp
RoBF, corn, DBs, SoC, small MoD or MH
why base decay on a minion with so much HP? wouldn't a random AMF own you?
no base decay then i don't care

I found that when I made the switch from IF/EF to RoBF, I had to drop off a lot of people on my list.
NSC, RoBF, SoC, DBs, Corn, AoF

Not very effective considering a vast majority of the higher up characters have DM.

If you don't mind me asking, what's wrong with your current build ?
Or are you simply too bored with it and just want a change, not necessarily an improvement ?

All AS (Yes, 24 millions levels of AS)
Giant Ice Familiar
Junction + NSCs.

I always wondered why you went with an IF.
As a single minion one has a huge disadvantage in lack of kill slots.
Therefore one should want to kill quickly.
MM is the ideal spell to do this.
Combined with DM, it is very effective.
I would say, with 24M levels you can do an outstanding build.
With 24M levels:
HoC, NSC, AoJ, SoC, SB. DBs if you can afford it. +101 DBs is about 15M which combined with evasion may be very nice.

I like rangers. Another good one could be half as half dm and reink to a halidon
In the past IF has given me the most targets from all the DD familiars. The reason is because I definitely have enough HP to survive in ranged and a few rounds of Melee. In those few rounds of Melee I deal more damage than my SF familiar would ever do.
Truthfully, because of DD and ranged nerfs coupled with ranged penalties, I can't see MM dealing enough damage without investing a bizarrely high amount into it. Not even a 8.5 mil SF is enough.
Killing in ranged is much harder than it used to be.

You're right. So far none of the proposed strats really is an improvement from my current one. But it's worth keeping an open mind to possibilities. You just have to have a little faith that the community might give you something you didn't see :D
Currently, even after the junction nerf I can't think of another strat that is more balanced offensive and defensively and truly take advantage of the single minion exp concentration.
I'm not fond of a lot of the EO orientated suggestions. Because of EO's stacking abilities, it doesn't take advantage of being a single minion. In general if a strat could be done much more effectively with two ore more minions, I'm not that interested.
the best single minion strat i found when i was highest was the robf, if your tat was high enough, with no offense on the tat holder.
the best xp distribution from my testing was 1/4 xp in each:
boring but effective!
