    Well yeah that's common sense stuff, I also have a couple sprint team and a team run but I guess I was talking more of cantrip style attack moves (lots of flank would be very good here) and the fact her boots are devoted mostly to armor. Another issue she has is lack of blocks. But its Aristocat so its all good :D

    What's the highest rating an aristocat build has hit in ranked play?

    Oh man, I just hit 1500, so I'm going to stick with my real team, but if I happen to nosedive I will definitely have to give it a shot.

    Inspired by @CT5's video and a desire to show off some of my new legendaries and figures, I'm trying to put together another Aristocat team.

    First of all, I'm doing Pure Aristocat: Legendary or nothing in every slot. So no Nimbus, AoA, or Resistant Hide.

    My dwarf burn wizard is pretty solid, and I can do an okay buff or vamp priest, but how best to show off my prehistoric elf warrior? I've got Focused Crushing, and at first I was going to try 2x The Bludgeonator and Porior's Nimble Mace, but elves don't really want to get up close and personal, so I switched to Vibrant Pain, Crazy Sal's Halberd, and The Strongarm, but I'm still uncertain.

    I could drop the priest for a crushing dwarf warrior to back up the slashing elf.

    Since I'm taking off work for the holidays, I thought I'd see if I could actually win a ranked MP match using an Aristocat build. So yesterday I dusted off my current MP party, made a couple tweaks, and actually won the first game I played! Then I started alternating wins and losses and I decided that as much as I loved my Lunging Bash elf warrior, she was dying way too fast (mainly because I'm impatient and keep sending her in first). So I swapped her for a boring old burst wizard, and my new build has a win rate of 78%, enough to put my guild in tenth place for the season.:) Of course, part of that win rate is because I'm starting at 1000 ELO.


    I'm using "Pure As Possible" Aristocat rules: epics for arcane skill and divine skill, legendary for everything else. I don't run humans because I don't have any of their racials yet (I'm buying Bloody Command if it ever shows up in the stores).

    Just posting here to say that if you see me in the MP lobby, invite me to a match! I've got a couple of teams set up that I haven't tried yet....

    I liked how empty pockets is better than most of the divine items :p
