After toa arrives group setup is going to change a bit - as far as i can guess it will be mixed setup with bodygarding tanks and DD casters dealing out damage. Would be interesting to hear opinions on future alb, hib and mid fotms =D

healer classes will be able to place power/heal wards. this means every x seconds all characters in x radius will get healed for massive amounts. They will never go out of power = endless heals, shrooms.

When ToA comes out rvr will be fucked up, only thing you will see is that group setup camping every milegate with 200+ shrooms. everyone passing by is 1shotted. Meanwhile this group is hiding in the room protected by another 100 shrooms, heal wards....

ToA will destroy DaoC

I've seen setups like this when my m8 was playing on US, just nothing you can do about it.

well 200 shrooms oneshot people, so they only get like 1 rp per person?
to my knowledge animist pets dont only leech xp, they also leech rp. and loads of it.

Healing/power fields were promptly nerfed and no longer stacks.

I'm making a h/o merc like sissyfoo said


main reason is i don't have a tank class atm and want one but also may as well wait for ToA to try something different...

What will be funny is if all the fotm mercs a few months ago reroll half ogre oO

---

Sorcs are fotm in albion atm far too many of them as are theurgists to a lesser extent

why would hibs wanna change their current pbaoe setup? seems to me that setup gets even better with toa.

as for alb, HO merc prolly gonna be fotm, but it should wear off after a while, as I cant rly see how an alb tank grp would be able to win vs hib pboe, seeing how the mercs cant kill anything HO or not.

mids.. will prolly see a bit more pbaoe grps

Example of toa frontloading =D
notice bofed cleric at 3-08 - killed by hero and bm joining later on as if bof was not up.
(though lavis is most well outfitted bm on server)
That would be a great example if it wasn't cause of the fact that he has full qui buff, haste buff and is probably using 20+% toa haste aswell. The fact that his assist train consist of 3 people with pre-nerf battler doesn't hurt either, nor does the fact that US ppl just don't seem to get "guard". ;)

Just watching the vid you can see him swinging that battler at about 3s which means he is pretty close to maxed out swing speed for a slow 2hander (for hibs atleast, mids get lower with cel). Frontloading means you try to swing as slow as possible to get a little more damage on the first instant hit, ie the opposite of what the guys in that vid are doing. :cheers:

pets max leech 25% of the xp (there i also that count for rps if it does)!!
so lets say u get 1k rps per kill (i know u dont but make the calculation easier) divided by 8 = 125 rps to u b4 pet leech
25% of 125 = 93,75 pr kill to u after pet leech (dunno if the formel round up or down)!!
so fare from 1 :)

remember this calculation only count if pet leech rps, as i dont know b4 u begin to flame me for making it!!

afaik thats per 1 pet, if you got 200 pets you aint gonna get much rp ;)
thats how i understand it at least.

Animist shrooms take 50% of your xp AND rp if they do all the damage, that's overall not per shroom.

will MoC really be so good for bards?? I'm not planning to get it atm cause activating MoC just to get one mezz off seems a bit too much points for one thing. Maybe good to mezz a whole zerg, but then again the zerg will have tons of unmezzers aswell.
