What do warriors hate the most?

  1. Hard to pin

  2. Dodge

  3. Sparkling cloth armor

  4. Other warriors with Vibrant Pains

  5. Pie

    Got my second VP and tried to make a ridiculous step attack build. I still suck against 3DC. I suspect the problem there is me.

    1st warrior - step attacks, dodge and pathfinding
    Level 20 Elf Warrior

    2nd warrior - step attacks with elven maneuvers
    Level 20 Elf Warrior

    Buff bot and team moves
    Level 20 Human Priest

    Basic strategy:
    1. Cast mass frenzy.
    2. Hit people with nimble strike.
    3. Blocks suck.
    4. Toughness really sucks.

    Infused or troll's ire instead of the Blog's?
    Glinting eye instead of Whiteglow?
    Go VP, bejeweled, rageblood and just use a twisted shield?

    Based on his avatar it's pretty obvious: some cats :)

    No cats were harmed in the making of this build.
    I got my first VP from Randimars. Second from a MP gold chest.
    I only have 51 unique legendaries (including 6 treasures). It's not like I do tons of farming. I have had a couple of people complain that I should be rated higher (currently at 1500). I probably should stop playing toy builds if I want my rating to go up.

    Having played a similar build for ages (and gotten up to #1 at one point), I have a few recommendations that will help your warriors out:
    1. Better card cycling. If your goal is to NS as often as possible, throw in some more cheap items with traits, such as Crusty Helm and Perilous Ringmail, and Goat Boots. You don't really need team run (at least on these maps) when you can just NS wherever you want. Card cycling was the #1 thing that improved my deck, which was in a similar place as yours.
    2. In turn, this will give you an extra token or so for some more powerful weapons. such as Infused Greatclub or The Bludgeonator. 9 points of damage with NS is great, but when you can follow it up with another 11 or 20 point hit w/o moving, you'll be smashing wizards (and elves) much more quickly.
    3. More blind rage. Raging Battler is a great card and Apprentice Ferocity a good substitute.
    4. If you have a 2nd (or 3rd) Slippery Shield, use it!
    5. Change all your characters to Dwarves. :)

    I realize I used the card tag instead of item - apologies! For some reason I can't edit my post, as it continually says I'm not logged in.

    Crusty Helm's trait does not cycle. You could use Weakling's Helm, same armor cards and tokenless with a manageable negative trait (that cycles)!

    Obvious Maneuver cycles in MP, but not SP.

    People are talking MP battles here so the trait of the crusty helm cycles.

    Thanks for the tips Captain.
    I used to play dwarves with more traits. I wanted to try something different to see if it was competitive. Dwarves are definitely better.
    I've got 6 slippery shields. I've leaned toward using four major and two minor tokens on weapons for warriors but nothing wrong with VP, Lochaber, Infused (I don't have a bludgenator). That would leave two majors for slippery shield and racial (probably solid rock or perfect stoutness).

    I've enjoyed using lots of officer's harnesses for SPRs, but hard to pin is just better. I wish there was a better warrior counter for SPR.

    Thanks guys, I did not know that!

    The true answer to the poll is SPR. Hands down.

    Don't use "https" at the front of the web address of the forum. It's bugged and it's causing your autologout issues. Using "http" will make the problem go away.

    IF you are having issues with 3DC builds then the 2 best ideas are Slipperies on everyone and maybe Arrogent Armor if you keep getting encumbered. But it is the build I have the most problems with using my WWP build. I dont do as well because I lack any VPs, but lately I have had some more success using Frenzy Aura as armors seem to be more popular lately.
