bard does pretty good down in level 5
slow going, but no problems so far.
thats a Crazed mage vs a Burning Mage.
if ya haven't played with them yet, they are a little tuffer then the old Evil Mage Lords, hehe!
a few of us went the other day and I had no problem discoing them occasional fail but not to bad
not sure whats with the mana diversion though they were doing that to me also especially its seemed if I ran masteries
the burning guy is fire colored!
Hey Poo, could you help us old bards out a bit here and tell us if you use any of the "masteries" in the "new" Shame? And are those "new" mages subject to my Repond Slayer lute?
i havnt done any real experiments, but i assume they are repond.
as the normal EML's are repond (thats Evil Mage Lords)
on my disco tamer i find that even though i dont have med or focus, that dropping the disco mastery on the unbound EVs helps a LOT with getting them down faster.
so disco, dragon on, dispair whenever i can get the mana for it.
as for my pure bard i have been running the provo mastery with him.
gives all my summons more UMMMF
so disco, provo, drop some EVs and put on mastery or both.
some direct spells.
i also have been using my Vollems down there and they have been eating stuff up good.
course im being a winp and letting either a warrior or dragon take the hits and i put my vollems in after.
hope that helps.
Can you explain (to a bard that did the "masterys" to get the book, but has never "used" them in battle) what you mean by "put on mastery or both" above ^^^ ?
either one or both of the spells.
for the provo ones they just run in the background and give ya perks.
same with the peace ones.
the first provo one gives your summons and pets and anyone in your party and within a radius of you a big boost in HCI, SDI and DI.
so when i say put on a mastery, that just means i cast the spell to turn it on.
and both, means i cast both spells so both are running.
Both the Provo mastery AND the Disco mastery at the SAME TIME? I thought you could only use one mastery at any given time?
thats correct, you can only use one mastery at a time.
BUT, each mastery HAS 2 SPELLS!
and you can cast BOTH spells a and have them both running at the same time.
just eats more mana.
If you do any of the vortexes or elementals, a disco/sampire is by far best. With my air ellie slayer double axe I do 120ish dmg on average and doublestrike every 3 hit or so and sometimes I drop a tribulation on them for added 60 dmg per hit. I killed 3 unbound EVs in the time it took a disco/tamer in my guild to kill 1.
And yes, the mages are repond slayer.
typically i go in with my warrior with a wind ele slayer.
and my disco tamer with a rune beetle.
that way i disco the UEV, warrior honors and takes him, beetle comes in and armor corruption.
tamer drops on mastery.
i can outkill plain sampire in more then 1/2 the time.
but i should, cause im there with 2 toons, hehe
i love it when people come up and see 3 UEV's on my warrior and i can tell they wanna ask if im ok, then they notice im taking no damage and all 3 of the EVs are going down in chunks with every whirlwind hit.
there is something to be said for spellweaving.
i was in there with my spellweaver tamer and when i started dropping WOD on the EVs they went down FAST.
level 6 crystal and maxed out SDI and diso on it allready and pow, WOD just rocks them!
but it rocks everything really.
