Strategy.. (in General)

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] November 16 2010 4:03 PM EST

Just a little strat I thought up, looking for some input :).

*Morgul Hammer
*Sling of death
*Amulet of invisibility
* A pair of DB's
*Elven Gloves
*Shield of capacity

On this minion I would train a large VA, and split the rest of the experience into strength and dexterity.

Minion 2 would be your typically Phantom link minion. It would be very crucial that you phantomn link all of the enemies damage or else your tank won't make it to melee (it only has 20 hp).

The goal with this strategy would be to hopefully have your phantom link minion last all 6 ranged rounds and a little bit into melee so your tank can do some very impressive life leeching.

All in all not really a viable strat but with some tweaks, maybe I'm onto something after all? ( might be possible with a PL minion with over 15 million hp and really high ac?)

i would trained 1/3 ST 1/4 DX and the MAX VA with your RoS, PL minion would train HP to PL 5:1 with a either Tsa or go max AC.

but you would die to GA in a heart beat. other than that if you can keep on par with your enc youd be ok.

I would dump the SoD since it can't leech life and GA would wipe your tank the first round of range.

Yep, you require hardcore DM for this strat

You wouldn't require any DM.

At Max, GA (before armour reduction) deals 60% retuned damage.

With a Morg and VA, you'd leach 60% dealt damage.

So you should not only cancel out any GA, but even regen a little bit due to reduction from AC.

The problem would be;

1) DM removing your VA
2) MoD

Problem 1 is being addressed by the RoS. The MoD will still kill you dead though.

Apart from as Horse said, the SoD will kill you. ;)

Drop the SoD and go with an ExBow, GA will be all but useless against you in Ranged so you can last until Melee where GA will be nullified by your MH/VA Combo. Max out your AC and train like Attack Posture said and this will be a winning strat.

I opted against the exbow because then the shield of capacity would be all but useless.. Suppose I could switch to a buckler of mandos though, the shield of capacity isnt a must, but it would be pretty awesome to hit for 20 million and leech 60% of that.. The fight log would be hilarious.. ;)

Here are my suggestions. For one SoC doesn't fit in with your strat. You should either drop the AoI and DB or drop the SoC. Also, you won't need more than a base VA boosted by the RoS, remember that it boosts the VA by 1/2 tat level plus gives the DM defense.

There are a couple things you could do. For one you could move the RoS onto the PL wall and add a base VA to him. Then you could put a TSA on the tank and I would also suggest removing the AoI for either AoAC or AoM. The other way you could do it is add an AoI on the PL wall as well. Also for a shield I think MgS or BoM would do much better. Even if you still have the RoS on the tank, you can have a MgS as well as the RoS boosted levels don't get 0ed out. I also suggest an Exbow instead of a SoD. You wouldn't really even need a small AMF but it would be better to try and fit that in unless you go with the double MgS which actually would be an option. Also you definitely want at least some trained HP on the tank for GA return from the exbow. There are a few other ways you can go with that strat as well.

You realize the size of the VA required for this is equivalent to the blow, right? 20M levels of VA leaves little room for anything else.

It would be nice to get like 10 mil HP instantly though. Of course the only people you could really do that with would be me and nov and a couple others.
