Champion or DK?
« on: 05:35:12 - 08/10/11 »
Hi everybody,

I'm coming back from a long break and trying to decide on my tertiary class, I'm currently a mercenary.

A couple of friends are Scout-->DK and Wizard-->Inq, and I'm trying to figure out whether we'd be more effective as a coli team if I went DK or if I went champion and played kiai + spirit.

Any suggestions?

Hello, welcome back to Estiah. :)

Well to be honest, going DK wouldn't give you much (besides maybe Lobotomize past lvl 47), while Champions can synergize well with most strategies, including spirit (I've seen some funny kiai-powered spirit teams). So I'd definitely go champion (besides, dex-third champion would be good with banes and bane champions do well in 1v1 at higher levels).

DKs are not that bad, but Kiai opition is a better choice.
Go the Novice route, if u wanna go Champ (assuming u are not Fighter yet)

Dreadknight Braedan takes 55 spirit damage
Flame123's willpower remains at 17
Flame123's auras duration is increased by 1 turn(s)

Dreadknight Braedan collapses of exhaustion.

Thanks for all of the advice!

So the consensus is that Champ - DK - Inq would be viable as a spirit or bane coli team?

it's viable if champion is a con dump.
u still need some good deck building skills to pull this out.
Also, there's a possibility that this team will fail to pyro-pyro-pyro.

DK is ok in the early 40s, but really offers only Mind Cry and Lobotomize for group synergy.  Otherwise your class charms are useful in some PvE situations, or as a vexing reminder that you really should have made your decision on a more practical basis than a cool class name.

 
151 Gothmogged uses [Violette's Roses]
Gothmogged targets Root of Corruption
Root of Corruption takes 125 melee damage
Root of Corruption is defeated.
229  Gothmogged uses [Nature's Claw]
Thornscourge the Defiled takes 212 melee damage
Thornscourge the Defiled is defeated.

There are a few examples of DK's who've made the class work for them... just not many. In terms of group synergy though, *nothing* synergises like Kiai - that charm alone make a champion one of the most sought-after classes for groups.

I'm at 567 out of 900 now.

My first thought was to continue just working on skills (focusing on int skills) until I get 40, then start drinking int elixirs and working on skills until I'm close to 41, then eat some int food and do a few jobs to close the gap and get kiai.

Thoughts? It's frustrating but not really game breaking in the long run.

Sounds just fine, just do elixirs though, food sucks. :P
