I'm planning on making an alt sometime :p I'm really interested in a thrust merc. But just curious, are they good or bad?
Any input appreciated ;D

hard to make a good ToA temp for thrust, or harder i should say. you get far less wepskill (dmg stat is dex/str average) than u do with 100% str based slash/crush. and you dont get the juicy malice proc...

overall i'd suggest u go HO/Highlander crush or slash 15str-10qui and you'll be happy with the dmg output whichever u go for.

If you're gonna do it don't gimp yourself.

Str Dex Slash/Crush WS Thrust WS
Avalonian 45 60 45 52.5

Briton 60 60 60 60

Highlander 70 50 70 60

Saracen 50 80 50 65

HO 90 40 90 65

Inconnu 50 70 50 60


Occy has a nice thrust template, my inconnu thrust merc is still a working progress, but if you're HO go slash or crush not thrust their weapon skill is sick.

My merc is thrust, because I didn't have any thrust characters yet, and she's briton because briton chicks in chain are sexeh.

:flame: If u wanna do something even better go 39 thrust, 39 slash, 50 dw and use dw styles :flame:

Having resistance advantage on target > liddul epeen ws number...gets u most targets vulnerable. Not tried do template to this though :p

slash/crush is a better combo, due to one toa template needed and the crush stun... if u wanna dual spec that is.

Mercs aint zerks either, we use base spec styles alot, crush: the stun chain, slash: backslash.

THE best spec for a merc btw is

39 parry
42 crush
50 shield

or maybe 42 parry and 39 crush.

Ya its up to your view to things...would personally give left arm for that anytime stun chain as zerker ;)

Played high rr blades bm & pierce merc...both fully toa´d ml´d...slash is so bad vs mid chain.

if you have your heart set on a thruster make a saracen, has a lot more flair than other races, and top notch dmg output as far as thrust goes ( HO has same WS but less qui so )
