    I would like to re-suggest again that there be no limitations on Divine/Martial/Arcane Skills. I now have two Axe Of The Titans and I'm dying to use Novice Slicing... and once again, Manifold Healer* sucks.

    *EDIT* Yes, I was referring to Manifold Medic. Manifold Healer is good. That's still besides the point though!

    I think you've reversed two similarly named skills:
    Manifold Healer - rare - is good
    Manifold Medic - epic - sucks

    And I think you just shouldn't be able to use divine or arcane skills :)

    Well it's settled then. We need some legendary Arcane and Divine skills.

    More items? I'm down.

    Still waiting for an actual run at this.

    Currently impossible because Resistant Hide is Common, so even if the other two cards are Rare the item will only be Epic.

    Good point. Then I want the Rare (and exclusive) Exploding Mage Hide. It has two Resistant Hides and a Festering Brain trait (Duration 4, Range 2, rarity & quality as required) which delivers Arcane damage equal to the maximum health of the mage if the mage is killed. Flavor Text: My death will be tragic to those nearest me.

    I'd say anything without a Legendary item available means you have to use Epic.

    Not sure how many people could even make a team with just using Legendary (and Epic for Divine / Arcane skills). It would be fun to run a tournament like this, but I'd expect participation to be extremely low.

    I think we could run a super-casual tournament. Just have everyone interested register here, and then have a round-robin lasting a week where people will try to play as many as possible. Every casual game I have played has been hilarious so far...

    I could be convinced to try out a casual tourney.

    I just want a casual game when opportunity arises. No need to make an elephant out of it... its a cat after all.

    sporting some nice firemage gear. If arcane shell was only armor:2

    Even though I can never find anyone to play with (and when I do I always lose), anything that makes me happy to find a otherwise useless tokenless shield is OK in my book!

    Since this is AristoCAT, here's my party:

    Level 4 Dwarf Wizard

    Three Lives
    Level 10 Human Priest

    So I picked up some more stuff... including Advanced Crushing #2 and Porior's Nimble Mace, and later if I get a Bludgeonator or something I would like to change this up for MAXIMUM CRUSHING POWER
    .. But until then, here are my Legendary Frenzy Fighters:

    [GL] Skazbar
    The Crushinator
    Level 18 Dwarf Warrior
    Can we say Lung-ity Bash-ity?

    [GL] Dukthagi
    Bleneth's Disciple
    Level 18 Dwarf Priest
    Rockin the triple Bleneth's items for maximum Frenzy. Sometimes uses Hawlic's Surging Shield, but it's not nearly as cool.

    [GL] Barazagril
    The Magic Chopper
    Level 18 Dwarf Warrior
    And this guy is all about slicing and dicing.

    Ok well I've garnered a few more legendaries since my original post, figured was time for round 2.

    1 x Wavering Faith

    1 x Shimmering Aura
    2 x Minor Heal
    2 x Touch Of Death
    1 x Dangerous Maneuver
    3 x Consuming Spear
    1 x Wild Run
    15 x Spear Of Darkness
    3 x Dodge
    2 x Elven Trickery
    2 x Enchanted Harness

    I could have added more mass frenzy with Bleneth items but I just wanted to cram as many vamp spear attacks as possible. I think I've reached the max possible on a priest with a total of 18 (someone correct me if I'm wrong) Lack of overall mobility, frenzies, and no healer skill means her meow is worse that her bite probably

    3 x Crusher
    1 x Reliable Mail
    1 x Bloodied Block
    8 x Unnerving Strike

    1 x Mighty Hack
    2 x Wounded Block
    1 x Sprint, Team!
    1 x Wild Run
    3 x Dodge
    1 x Icy Block

    Overall lowish dmg but hopefully the crusher makes up for it somehow. Only 1 atk is non-crush and he has lots of unnerving so I shall dub him "wall-breaker"


    So I'd say that while not exactly competitive, this deck is a definite improvement over my original submission. Hopefully a tourney comes out someday so we can try out all these strange builds :D

    p.s. before anyone asks I don't actually have that cat priest figurine ;)

    i wouldnt say the Spear Vamp Cat lacks mobility. Unless you can't take the thought of "spending" a dodge here and there and actually use the trickery to move from A to B.
