View Full Version : Was conversing a friend cleric got an idea

<DIV>Um  was wondering if a group could try this out.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>gruop make-up</DIV> <DIV>9 Paladins,  equel or near equel lvl.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Why I think this would work.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>1  6 healers.   not the best,  but it would equel the same as 2-3 main healers.</DIV> <DIV>2  tanks       use one as the MA  he uses board and sword.  everyon cast offering of armament on him.....23-2500 AC at lvl 24.  if anyone else gets aggro for some odd reason, they can tank it for a few minutes.</DIV> <DIV>3  we will lack hte DPS of wizs, but you have two more damage dealers than in a normal group where your primary or both helers are out of the fray watching and healing.</DIV> <DIV>4  Wards up the wazoo</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>How it would work</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Pick the best equiped, preferrably highest lvl pally as the MT/MA.   He does knights stance, blessed and vigor of trust on himself.  The other 5 use offering of armament and vigor of trust on him.  the MT equips board and sword....ancient kite shield and barik sword of thunder prolly be best.   the other 5 equip the best 2 handers they can get their hands on, seen afew good crafted ones and a good hammer drop from SH (steel maul)</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>So lets do the math.  a pally can heal 178 at lvl 22, or 200 at lvl 24,   every 5 seconds.  it uses more power than the ward, but is more effective.  so ytou have 6 people that can heal at those amounts.  the MT shold use righteous blow  (that the one that does small personal heals right)  their main nuke,  prolly righteous anger at my lvl and heal themselves.   the others use their two best nukes,   righteous anger and the two hander attack and heal</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I am just wondering how well this group could take on serious mobs.   orange^^s and red^^s     honestly,  I think they would be unstopable...but besides the lack of debuffs and group buffs...dont know what else I am missing.      and think about all the purty lights from cry of conviction and righteous anger going off every second or two.....and how many procs would be oging off.....</DIV>

<DIV>It would take forever to kill anything.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Might as well have one healer for their buffs, which are better than ours. Might as well have one scout to flip HO's and give much better buffs/dps. Might as well have a mage for buffs and dps (or mezzing).</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I'm not saying it wouldn't work.. I'm just saying it's not ideal.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV><FONT face="Comic Sans MS" color=#330099 size=4>- Bladezilla Killa -</FONT></DIV>

<DIV>Well, I know it is not ideal....but think about it.   Get a group of 5 of your pally friends together,   hop on your holy Steed  and run around the steps.   I t would look awesome.   Especially to go hunt undead like that....be a bit of RP in it.  seeing as how those are our mortal....or immortal enemies   I really cant think of anything cooler than having all those pallies running around on horses in plate and vanguard tearin it up...especially if you can get 2 or 3 groups together for raid mobs.</DIV>

<DIV>this won't work cuz you're not gonna be able to stack offering of armaments on one tank, they'll just keep overwriting each other or not taking hold.</DIV>

Count me in for the mombo lines of ponies and shattered bones.

<DIV>ok  well  I didnt know htat offering didnt stack,  I will have to try that out of course   jsut to check, but that sucks if not  and why wouldnt it!?!?  BAH.</DIV>

<DIV>because it would be overpowering.  the same reason you can't have multiple same buffs from other classes on you at the same time.  otherwise you could get multiple haste casting group members stacking massive haste on the fighters.  or super high HP buffs stacked on top of each other, etc.  it wasn't any different in eq1.  you couldn't cast 5 virtues or clarities on someone and have them all stack.</DIV>
