I have no clue on what to upgrade next, In this and next post I'm going to try and point out some of the things that I do know, but then I'm stuck :)

I've got 2 minions whom are wearing the following:

1st minion:
Amulet of Focus [0] (+12)
Breastplate of Expertise [18]
Elven Cloak [4] (+11)
Boots of Fortitude [12] (+32)
Elven Gloves [3] (+12)
Cornuthaum [0] (+13)

2nd minion:
Noldorin Spellcasters [0] (+15)


Then, stat wise:
The Amulet is giving me a 36% increase in Evasion and a 36% increase in Ablative Shield
The Cloak is giving me an 11% increase in Evasion
The Gloves are giving me a 12% increase in Evasion
The Boots are giving me a 16% increase in Direct Damage for my 2nd minion and Familiar
The Cornuthaum is giving me a 26% increase in Dispel Magic and Ablative Shield.

The Gloves on my 2nd minion give it and for the Familiar a 15% reduction in Anti-magic Field effectiveness.

Oh, I forgot to mention:

I currently have 10 million in cash and want to spend some, if not most, of it for the upgrades.

List of blacksmith prices in no particular order: (all from current to current+1)
Cornuthaum: 30 million
Noldorin Gloves: 6 million
Amulet: 4 million
Cloak: 1.6 million
Boots 1.2 million
Gloves: 1 million

bump, any other ideas even though these sound solid?

Quyen July 15 2011 12:24 PM EDT

uhh.. go for the AoF first :D

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] July 15 2011 3:46 PM EDT

BoFs for sure.

QBRanger July 15 2011 3:51 PM EDT

AoF

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] July 15 2011 4:06 PM EDT

My reasoning: AoF = 6% increase close to 8% if you waited a little longer, but it will not help vs the majority of teams fighting you.

BoFs = 2.5 just shy of 3% damage increase team wide, so really a total of 6% damage increase, and decay boosted by leadership works wonders.

I'd go for damage increase personally as I don't think more AS or even more evasion is going to save you much from the people fighting you, either that or wait till you can take the AoF to +14 and do that instead.

Green shards are good to upgrade ;)

QBRanger July 15 2011 4:33 PM EDT

Remember the AoF will boost the hp of 2 of your minions/familiar in addition to the extra evasion.

QBRanger July 15 2011 4:34 PM EDT

Sorry, just the first minion.

I'm with Xeno on the BoFs, a few hundred thousand HP probably isn't going to make too big of a difference compared to a damage boost.

Upgrading the BoF and the Spellcasters will hurt my team the most. (You're currently on my fight list)

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] July 16 2011 2:05 AM EDT

oh and I just realized my %s for the AoFs were off, it was supposed to be 6% for the +14 and 9% for +15, I wasn't paying attention when I wrote that.

So yeah that extra 6% wont do much for you imo

Thanks for all the replies, this afternoon I'll look what I can do about the upgrades themselves :)
