Back To Work (in General)

So I've been hardcore researching strategy lately since I came back and I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out the weak points in the strategy. As in what teams I'll "dominate" and which teams with blow me back to the Stone Ages.

Enchanter-Full DM...Corn
Tank-Haven't quite figured the exact training yet but I figured the standards for ST HP DX and Archery.


I wanna possibly add a Phantom Link wall later down the road when I acquire the gear. I'm thinking WTE at that point? Alright everyone go to town tell me where I messed up :).

Your strategy idea (minus the wall) is what Warlord Darkfurry uses on his character "Lord of Wars." It relies on heavy DM to remove AS and GA so the archer can finish off the weakened enemies.

From what I can tell, the drawbacks are:
- Higher ranged damage output.
- Non-ED reliance tank users.
- Stronger tanks.

Adding a Wall would help in no way from what I can see. Your team relies on ranged damage to kill. Adding a wall would only spread your xp concentration, thus lowering your damage from the archer and your DM enchanter. Another variation of this is using a Halidon instead of the ToA, which would then follow Ranger's "Heroes" and miteke's "Law." However, they lack the exp on the DM enchanter because they both hired late.

Therefore in my opinion, keep the two minions early on and use a Halidon on the Enchanter. This would allow you to keep a large DM with xp concentration while freeing up your archer to use ST boosting items (primarily the TSA). Not only does this keep your archer up with ToA users (somewhat), you have much higher AC to combat GA. Ranger's increased AC caused me to start losing to him (my team is massive AS and GA use). Darkfurry's huge DM fizzles my GA, allowing him to freely kill my team with no retribution. I believe a combination of Ranger/miteke and Darkfurry's strategy will yield great results.

As a matter of fact, if you don't use this... I might for my NCB if I use one :)

Ha thanks a ton Rawr, dark pointed out to me the drawback of the wall and its been knocked out. I was looking into the Halidon's but I still wanna play with the ToA for now to see if it'll yield better results. Also a money issue stands for that too haha. Thanks for the tips though I might play around with that a bit down the road.

Ranger experimented with the ToA I'm not sure how it went but as far as I can tell he reverted back to the Halidon. You could probably ask him for further advice on the ToA.

He actually helped me with the initial plan. He's been a lot of help since I came back with 2 or 3 strategy's I've wanted to try. He had nothing bad to say about the ToA but, I feel I might want to discuss it with him now.
