I just got an epic drop that I hadn't heard of and wasn't expecting:

Indeed it is! And Sign of Algorab is quite attractive as well.

Yep. The nice thing with those is that they have the same stat requirements. My INQ is getting close - about 40 more DEX and she'll be able to use them. 2 Rubies at the moment, but haven't made the charms yet.

Edit: Hands Off, It's Mine at level 49, with 1700 Armor, 2400 Ward, and 26 WP left over at the end:

So what guild(s) are the active maintankadin people in these days? I'm not sure how many, if any, people are active in the "official" maintankadin guild. I have a 43 assassin that I'd prefer to have somewhere more active.

I'm in Shadow Song Goblin Tribe (SSGOBT).

Apart from a few IRL friends and WoW guildmates, it is mostly composed of my own alts and those of my wife. :)

Very nice! :)

Deckbuilding exercise time! Did you ever put together your BDC/Premonition deck for your champ? I just got the skill and Premonition charms and also Phantom Claws as an experiment:

Selected gear: 55/65 charms

Blood Drake Curse x5
Premonition x5
Vital Point x5
Tremor Punch x5
Phantom Claws x5
Battle Tempo x5
Luminous Idea x5
Skull Greaves x5
Forest Medicine x5
Champion's Crest x5
Night Cloak x5

This is a bit different than the other BDC/Premonition decks - I'm using Tempo and all 3 Fist delayed banes to try to lay down a bunch all in the same turn. Not using the +next delayed auras - only Skull Greaves. (No Boiling Blood either as you can see)

Working ... ok in skirmishes. Not great against Spirit as expected (but not as awful as I thought it'd be). Auto-loss vs Wardens, but oh well.

Any blatant improvements you can see?

Ehhh, I cobbled some patchwork contraption together (didn't have the patience to farm 5-of of each required charm).

It worked decent enough against random PvP opponents who attacked her, but yielded no major coli victories.

Warning!!

Blood Pact just got whacked by the NERF-stick. It now consumes the +2 Bane when you use an EA. (Odd, but that's what they did to it...)

I've tried making a boiling blood / release seal / retreat / skull greaves short deck. Its pretty brutally effective, but loses to spirit rather easily!

hmm, its been a while since anyone posted here, but hopefully people are still around. I'm thinking of making a new alt soon and was wondering if anyone doing the same wanted to trade apprentices?

Step 1: Get full sets of Energy Bloom (Frost Fortress), Accoutrement of Misery (Prelex), and Crystalline Ice (Last Echo). Untie Threads (Bitter Nourishment) helps too, but isn't necessary.

Scorching Sands is pretty easy but you MUST have "self -aura" to do fight 2. Heh - self-purge works too I guess, so Kyud's Analyzer would be fine too *laugh* Fight 3 is figuring out how to knock all the various effects off of the storm - it's a pretty cool concept for a fight.

Solace in Solitude is harder, especially fight 2. I've been doing both fights 1 and 2 with an aura-deck (crystal of dawn, etc), but they have to be tweaked differently. Fight 4 is hard too - tons of cumulative armor and some way to damage him, but can't use auras.

Unless I'm doing something horribly wrong, Energy Burst/Analyzer isn't even remotely enough. Guess I'll spend the next month farming a playset of Emphatics. :(

Hmm - it sounds like you're doing something horribly wrong. I don't use Analyzers, only Energy Burst (and Untie Threads for the couple guys that have run Bitter Nourishment).

My notes say: No banes (they all cleanse every turn), No auras (they hurt you), no summons (get reduced). No CPB. Reduce self-aura (Energy Burst, Untie Threads). Lots of EAs are fine, and you don't need a full deck. Non-CPB melee, but +next is fine. Incidental Armor/Ward is good too - stuff like Battle-Forged Lance.

The RNG will still get you every once in a while on this one too. *shrug*

Edit: You need a bit of WP too. Here's my assassin's sample deck:
Selected gear: 58/66 charms
Energy Burst x5
Mach Fist x5
Sonic Blade x5
Kiss of Lesath x1
Photo-Linked Handgrips x2
Mace of the Blessed x4
Glorious Hammer x1
Battle-Molded Axe x5
Battle-Forged Lance x5
Kysin Guardian Blade x5
Dragon Rage x5
Luminous Idea x5
Hilt of Saiph x5
Rapier x5

The epics don't really matter - just big base damage.

Hmmm... my lvl44 Warlord's experiences indicate otherwise. :(

Ah well. Maybe I should just try doing it achievement-style, with a shortdeck based on Grip of the Whirlwind, Niflungars and delayed auras. :D

Heh. I take it fight 3 (Lez/Nip, again) is the problem?
(Though you may need to farm some specific things for all 4 fights...)

I do that with a 50-charm deck and have a ton of self-spirit cards.

Lay Bare, Desperate Fortress, and Cocooning Cloak are required, and then the rest should be dual-rune magic damage with as much debuffing (or armor/ward) as you can squeeze in.

Bone Freeze is really good, and stuff like Dancing Flames.

NO EAs!

As far as the others, here are my notes:
- 1: Debuff Rune hits, Cum-WP, lots of damaging EAs. (No banes, avoid auras)
- 2: Cumu-Focus*20, Song Chaos, Blacknerve or Weaver's Gloves (TBN).
- 4: AoE Cumu WP, Will Attraction, Ward Repulsion, Natures's Claw, Tanking.

(Fight 4 is a PITA if you can't use Circle of Hands - Lawful Will by itself is not quite enough)

Indeed they are.

I tried using a longish deck with self-spirit, but Lez and Nip invariably tore me apart within the first dozen turns. Finally got lucky with a 30 card setup, 10 of which were self-stuns.

The main problem, as far as I can tell, is Lez's Smothering Shadows (AoE cleanse), since it removes the -next debuff from Years of Experience (and whatever debuffs I've managed to land on Nip). On his immediately following turn, Nip usually stabs me with a Herokiller for a metric ton of pain.

Of course, F4 is even worse, since I'm two and a half months' of daily elixir drinking away from being able to use Circle of Hands. On the kill, I once again got lucky, and managed to extend Lawful Wills a few times via timely Emblems of Support.

(On the brighter side, F2 was a cakewalk, especially once I've figured out that the initial turns of protect granted by the ally at the start of the fight can fuel Jade Gauntlet for cheap 10 turns of cumulative focus)

Jabari wrote:NO EAs!


Actually, on one of my experimental attempts, I found out that it's quite possible to use EAs here:

As long as Lez doesn't manage to land a successful Terrorize stun on you or your ally, Plague Hawk doesn't trigger.

The basic deck I use for WWAMS 3:

Gear 'WWAMS 3' By Bloodtooth: (50 charms)

Bone Freeze x5
Permafrost x5
Dawn's Melody x5
Icy Slasher x5
Lay Bare x5
Cocooning Cloak x5
Enhancing Light x5
Void Bolt x5
Nightclaws x5
Desperate Fortress x5

Not 100% obviously, but lots better than anything else I was trying.

You mean "I suppose I'd better start farming those Wriggling Larva", right? :)

Those drop from Fight 3, but very, very rarely. Take 2 of those, go to Night Tear (for crafting mats), then to Eversweep and craft Ardent Abominations with them (after getting yet a couple more Loyalties from KoNM).

Then, get 2 more of the Larvae, and craft 2 Purifying Larva there in Gaea's Dawn (mats are in Lumina next door).

On fight 4, put those 4 summons in your deck - if at least one of each is active when the Succubus uses a certain charm, it triggers a combo that gives you the last achievement for that dungeon, and a [Vital Force]. 2 of each gets the combo most of the time, but not always.

*whew*

Now, gather in Gaea's Dawn to open up a new shop with much cool stuff. It lets you convert pebble types - for example, you can change a Small Amber Rubble to a Tiny Emerald Shards. Mats are a [Vital Force] (see above) and 3 PvP gems of the color you're changing the pebble to.
