Strat Help: Squishy Team Needs It (in General)

FailBoat[SG] [Forever Alone] May 19 2009 3:11 AM EDT

So, as of recent, I've noticed that I'm falling behind, horridly, in growth compared to those on my fight list. I'm trying to figure out the best way to optimize the damage I can do to try and make this a little easier on myself.

The current stats for my team are:
Dispel Magic 382,613 382,613 306,090 EXP: 4.5mil
Ablative Shield 1,004,346 1,004,346 502,183 EXP: 11.8mil

Magic Missile 426,102 426,102 125,334 EXP: 5mil

A Halidon Familiar lvl 629,869 MTL: 906k

I know I really need to get gear for both the enchanter and the Mage, but the mage is a new minion and I'm in debt right now so they're going to have to wait. I also know that I need to insta up my Tattoo but again, in debt, so that will have to wait.

I'm wondering if anyone can see any easy changes I could make to make this team more effective. I don't really have any gear to fall back on right now as I'm mostly paying off my debt although I do have a base MsK. <.<

Thanks in advance!

In all seriousness, when me and goodfish have our contest this summer, you could easily win some or all of the equipment you need. So hang tough!

Otherwise, all I can suggest is rentals.

Why have 2 different damage dealers?

You could make your first minion all AS, the second all DM.

And you should rent gear.

You certainly need to rent the following:


All of which is greatly increase your HFs damage.

A BoM and EBs are optional.

But certainly get the first 3.

You're right Ranger, I really do need to rent that stuff. And switching what was trained has made a slight difference. My main issue with it right now is most of the people on my fight list are doing twice the damage I am, if not more. And the only reason I'm surviving is the sheer size of my AS and the lack of DM from other teams.

So, my newest thought is to leave my second minion as a pure DM, or switch it to AS and let the first minion pick up DM. But retrain the first minion to be an archer. I have a MsK on my storage character but can't decide how I would go about doing that retrain plus I think I'd rather have a ToA than a Hal for my team.

Any ideas on how to make this transition?
