    its pretty non-standard running 6 OB on warriors and wouldn't recommend it but hey whatever floats your boat.

    All I've seen (or at least all I've lost to as far as warriors were concerned) was OB with quick run / war cry thrown into the mix. Personally I despise OB which made me stop playing warrior builds and soon after that stop playing anything else than occasional drafts. What floats my boat are bashes and stabs in builds that can outmaneuver and/or manipulate but these are far from competitive so I couldn't really play those outside of SP. In MP i scarcely played OB and whatever advantage I accumulate over several turns by playing smart or as Jade puts it 'out-teching' my opponents can very easily go down the drain if my opponent manages to play two attack cards on me. The consistency of OBs being drawn without the need for card draw engines suggests that people are (or at least were) playing more than one of infused greatclub et al type of weapon.

    If what you're saying is that the meta matured and warriors are not relying on OB than I will seriously consider investing in my warrior gear and try the usual MP again.

    I'm not running any OBs nor Almighty Hacks on my warrior. They are definitely not necessary.

    I'm running a stab warrior and a bash warrior, 0 nimble strike and 0 Obliterating Bludgeons. It can be done.

    I've been looking for double Firestorm arcane items forever, and finally Randimar has an Azgul's Orb (and I can afford it!). Is it still worth 2500 since the nerf? Most of my SP playing is still based on Firestorm.

    Thanks, I bought the Orb and a second St Ulrich's Bones (because you can't get it from the Loot Fairy and I don't play MP or leagues much). And thanks the the crazy Loot Fairy this last week I've still got enough cash for another Legendary if something wonderful shows up tomorrow.

    You can't? Couldn't it show up when the Loot Fairy is in any of the 15+ adventures?

    Nope, because Bless has an introductory level of 23, so you can only get it from the treasure hunt reward, MP chests, purchased/league chests, or shops.

    That sounds familiar but I don't remember how we actually know that. Isn't Almighty Hack a level 21 card as well?
  11. Sir Veza

    Sir Veza Farming Deity

    As far as I can see, it's controlled by item. Giant Skeletal Arm has an introductory level of 27, and St Ulrich's Bones has an introductory level of 23. For everything else it is 18 or less. The introductory level for The Hackmaster is 1, so it drops by item level.
    The White Star Diamond doesn't drop anywhere except the initial completion of The White Star because it's a level 30 item. I think that covers the oddballs.

    Hey guys, got a few im not sure about but im leaning towards no on all of these. However, ive often missed out on a gem so any input is appreciated.

    Bendolth's Pauldrons : Even with the buff to Hide Strips, i feel like this isnt worth the cash.

    Fabrian's Shield : All nice cards, especially with the buff to catch arrow, but im leary of spending big money on something that could have dead cards if your opponent doesn't play a wizard.

    Ring Of Majestic Healing : I have one already, but more importantly i feel like the nerf to FS basicly nerfed the efficiency of team heal. Before you could always run team heal as chances were decent you would face a FS team or you could use it to great effect on your own FS team.

    Xlaka's Sacred Bundle : St. Bethan's Charm just seems better for much cheaper. I mean, why would they even make this legendary in the expansion?

    So anyways, feel free to point out the error of my ways. Thanks!

    It's the Level field in the Cards table (near the end of the line, between the set number and slot names); introductory levels for items are just the highest card level on it. The card with the highest level is Perfect Block at level 39, but the only cards available to players above 18 are Bless and Massive Chop. I think the whole concept is a bad idea.

    Fabrian's Shield isn't a total write-off if your opponent has no wizards. Nobody runs triple warrior, they always use at least one priest/wizard if not more. After all, when your opponent suspects you may have a Block Any card they will throw Bad Luck, Triple Heals, Misguided Heal, Mind Worm or possibly Purging Burst at you (not to mention Entangling Roots) in the hopes it will remove that. Plus Defender's Block is awesome. You never know.

    When it comes to certain... divine items, there are some you must consider. See Xlaka's Sacred Bundle, St. Bethan's Charm, and Jygpin's Healing Ring.
    The thought on Xlaka's Sacred Bundle is that it provides Inspiring Presence AND Mass Frenzy (not to mention healing). Bethan's/Jygpin's only have one or the other. I would use the Bundle in a new experimental build if I had one. See also Skull Of Savage Iljin, Knife Of St. Blenko for Inspiring Presence, and any Bleneth's items with Mass Frenzy not to mention the quintessential St. Olf's Fiery Pike.
    I don't think I would outright buy the Bundle unless I was sure that was the perfect item for my build. You have options.

    OK so we have some new Rarities this week!

    Bleneth's Skull #2
    ...Do I need another one? I have one of each item already except Tome.
    This is a neat weapon. 3 card draw attachments on one weapon? Cool.
    Asmod's Telekinetic Chain
    Telekinesis is such a great card now. This item has two, and it's tokenless.
    Bynzer's Black Spear
    OK we all had this in the Daily Deal but now I have time to make some money for this? I've had a lousy time with using vampires so far...

    By next week I should be able to afford to buy one Legendary, and my current choices are Dark Drewg's Mace and Focused Crushing. Or I could save my money in case even better things show up in the Daily Deal.
  17. Krodis

    Thanks for the insight Jade! I passed on them for now, but i do see your point on the possible baiting advantage of catch arrow on Fabrian's. But now on to this week!

    Bleneth's Frenzy Tome : i know this should normally be auto buy, but i already have one, and a Bleneth's Skull and Bleneth's Frenzy Charm so i feel like i should hold out for Bleneth's Frenzy Medallion. That being said, its hard to turn down more 2x mass frenzy for 1 blue.

    Illusion This is one i think i will buy, as it is very unique and there are very few items with illusory barrier. Anyone played with this at all?

    Mullik's Blisterstaff : So i already have one, but its so good i want a second. Not only is it awesome for low lvl farming, but with the buff to Force Cone it has become excellent for 2 war 1 wiz support with Smoke Bomb.

    Anyways, am i overvaluing any of these?

    Nope, you seem to know what you're up to Krodis.

    -Tome: If you have a Skull AND a Tome, you really don't need two tomes unless A: You really want to swap out a Skull and use the greater token elsewhere or B: You're using crazy Savage Curse vampires like I am.

    Illusion is pretty sick, I see Illusory Barrier being used in MP and it's overwhelmingly strong in Death March.

    The Blisterstaff you *probably* don't want to use 2 of on a single wizard/2 warrior party. For farming, it's good but I would often prefer Staff Of The Inferno. Force Cone IS amazing, but what I find funny about it is that they changed the mechanics and now it damages + moves the furthest target first, which is very useful but funny how you can kill the furthest target . Try buffing it with Savage Curse XD

    Pick your favorite tokenless legendary divine weapon: Cudgel Of Wrath, St. Portia's Maul or Dark Drewg's Mace. Now carry on...

    I really want Perfect Focused Crushing but for Aristocat :p

    Sound right to me.
    Randimar is working hard to drain my funds. 8 new legendaries last week and two more today. There are also a few I'd like more of, but the most tempting is a second Mordecai's Staff Of Magma. There are only a few SP levels where it's usable, but it can be helpful.
    Edit: I use 4x Mullik's Blisterstaff for tokenless farming. One advantage is that if you can't quite get all the enemies in range, you can move your mage and the rest of the pile a little bit closer.

    I don't have any of those divine weapons yet (and Randi has the Cudgel this week too, but I like Drewg better).

    And it's Focused, not Perfect (and this isn't the first time I've seen that mistake), and I was thinking of Aristocat too.;)
