Re: what made it gear dependent? were you happy with elf as race for champion?

Anything that requires certain weapons/gear to be competitive is gear dependent. Champions need a lot of care and feeding. They are vuln bash, semi vuln dirt disarm and vuln grapple, strip, weaponbreaker. You lose your weapon while blind and you are running or dead. So now you have to try and cover those weaknesses. Monks don't have that weakness. You can blind my monk all day long, and I can still survive, because my defenses don't depend on a weapon. There are some things that will nerf defenses on a monk. Anything that attacks Str/Dex(Boneshatter) will nerf a monks defenses if they don't have it covered. But as a monk I'm not likely to die to that, just more likely to GTFO and return when I'm better.

Elf was a decent choice for champion, but after comparing to the storm thats running around right now, I wonder if storm isn't a better option with a polearm in certain situations. Storm won't bat for crap, but Fend is nice, and if you enlarge, theres a high chance of lag there, almost as much as Bat I think. But don't bother wielding a staff as a storm. I didn't do much testing on elf with pole for defending but I know Elith does it a lot and seemed to do as well if not better than mine, so my assumption that staff was the go-to for elf might be misguided, but I didn't do enough testing.

Hope my rambling helps.

If you delete your champions when you lose an eagle staff, you're going to have a bad time

I guess it is hard to find a cursed staff (I can only think of one); thank you for the explanation/feedback (n/t)

His personal beliefs make it difficult for him to get into the head space necessary to truly RP evil.

Dalbrin 211 January 12, 2019 09:03AM

pretty much.

Welverin 237 January 12, 2019 11:09AM

Dude, the best evils think they are the hero.

He can only play a monk. The automation of the build is great for him. Puts away the whole thought process. And, monks aren’t allowed in scarab. (n/t)

Pretty sure I made you rage delete at least two characters when I played my Druid....

Welverin 222 January 11, 2019 12:05PM

I'm not even playing and I've made him rage delete 4 guys. n/t

jalim 113 January 11, 2019 12:32PM

It's your greatest talent. Nt

No, this is your hero
