NCB Ideas (in General)

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 8 2012 8:16 PM EDT

It has come to my attention that i don't actually have many people i can beat with my current strat so i am looking at running an NCB.
Because it has been a while, anyone have some ideas on some simple, cost efficient strategies i could run?

RoS or RBF are the most efficient with cost/benefit.

What is a RoS strategy? 4 minions with AS or GA on them?

RoS strat:

Typically 4 minions. The order can be played with.

Minion 1: AS with RoS
Minion 2: DM and AS with DM up to 40% of RoS level
Minion 3: GA and AMF, typically 100k to 1M AMF to protect vs base decay
Minion 4: Attacker. Be it tank or mage. I find the best and cheapest is either a MM or SG mage. SG is just too freaking powerful especially vs GA.

If you go with a mage as minion 4, the cost of the strategy is not much. You use the AS/GA axis to take out most of your attacker and your mage to clean up the rest.

With the NSC, the fact your xp on the mage is diluted opposed to a single or dual minion character is not as worrisome. Just learn mostly DD with a touch of HP if you want.

A very cheapish and very effective strategy to fight up very high and get a large CB as long as possible.

If you want a RBF strategy look no further than Dudemus' character Damage Control.

The RBF does need a wall type minion to help stay alive as you want the battle to drag out as long as possible.

For that reason, I prefer a RoS strat over the RBF due to initial cost of items. Wall armor upgrades can get expensive. And DM can hurt you greatly nerfing your SS.

Robf strat is good for climbing the ranks since it helps mitigate MPR imbalance between you and some of the characters with high MPR in the dead zone. From my experience, training a big AMF is a very popular thing with this strat but the effect seems to be diminished when going up against a big familiar strat

Be the cool kid and put the RoS on a base GA and commit all that minions XP to something else and never train GA or keep it very low >_>
