What do you think is better? (in General)


Drama May 8 2009 6:39 PM EDT

What do you think is better between a GoM/MC duo or a EG/EC if I want to get more hit in one round with a tanks that has an equal dex/PTH ratio?

EG/EC, it's more important to keep your BTH than to gain a few extra PTH.

Do not also forget the EG/EC combo will raise your skills, giving you more xp to use for other stats/spells/skills.

But why would one use EGs on a tank? For a tank there are really only 2 gloves to consider.

BG if your missile damage based vs TG if your melee damage based.

The TG gives more strength, yielding more ENC load and more damage.

TGs also give a bit more AC than EGs, which helps a bit.

Also, if you go with the GoM/MC route, your stuck using a 1H weapon to get those bonuses. With the Salvage Yard, you can use 1H or 2H weapons using the EG/EC.

What is BTH :S

Drama May 8 2009 6:52 PM EDT

I was thinking about a 3 minion team.

first with AS, leadership and RoS

second is a tank with str/dex, BL and MoD/SoC

third has haste, PL, EC and a EH

That's why I wanted to know wich item to pick.

Thanks for the fast answer.

Base to hit.

For melee weapons it is 60 for 1H and 40 for 2H.

For missile it is 100 for the ELB, 90 for the Mageseeker and compound, with 60 for the SoD and xbows.

BTH is your chance to hit with equal dexterity.

With max dex advantage, typically 4x dex, you get 100 added to it. With no dex advantage you can get to 0 to hit.

Evasion and DBs can only lower your Chance to hit to your Base for the weapon. So even with max dex advantage using an ELB, if they have +1000 DBs', you still have a 100 chance to hit.

PTH is plus to hit, which is the plus on your weapon, plus naming, plus additions such as the ToA, MC and GoM. This can entirely be countered by evasion and DB. With dexterity having no effect on it.

Your 3 minion setup if very nice.

However the ROS does best with 4 minons.

I would have a 4th using GA and DM. Keeping the DM to your max allowable by the ROS level.

I would also have a 100k or so AMF on your 3rd minion to help vs decay. Not much but enough to stop the 50% HP effect.

Also, think about a missile weapon, either a SoD or exbow to help soften up your enemies. Nothing massively high but enough to help a bit.

Tell me, would evasion be good on first minion?

And do you get nerf in your stat using a missile weapon, a melee and a shield?

QBRanger May 8 2009 7:07 PM EDT

I would think the xp is best spent on more AS. Combined with GA and the RoS it packs quite a punch.

No to Q2.
