Revision as of 00:57, February 28, 2011

The PvXwiki community finds this to be an important part of the metagame.

If you disagree with this rating, please discuss it on the build's talk page.

This build has been designed for the following use:

The MQSC (Mount Qinkai Speed Clear) build uses teams of smiters, tanks and a finisher in combination with a runner in order to farm Luxon faction at Mount Qinkai in Hard Mode from Aspenwood Gate. With an average team, faction rewards can come anywhere from 9.5k-11k a run and runs take 7-12 minutes. Groups are normally formed in the European German districts.

Party members should split into three teams (Update With Current Meta):

<pvxbig> [build prof=mo/ra smit=12+1+3 Beast=9 divin=9+1][Essence Bond][Retribution][Holy Wrath][Smite Condition][shield of judgment][Edge of Extinction][Ebon Vanguard Assassin Support][Rebirth][/build] </pvxbig>

Equipment

  • Superior Protection and Smiting Headset
  • 40/40 Smiting Prayer set

  • High energy set

Usage

<pvxbig>

  • Follow the tank and:

    • Use Blessed Signet [[Blessed Signet] for more energy if needed.
    • Cast Holy Wrath [[Holy Wrath] as often as possible.

</pvxbig>

Variant for More Experienced Tank

<pvxbig> [build name="y smit 2" prof=monk/eleme smitin=12+1+3 divine=12+1][retribution][essence bond][holy wrath][shield of judgment][air of superiority][by urals hammer][intensity][Rebirth][/build] </pvxbig>

Equipment

  • Superior Smiting (Head) + Minor Divine Favor
  • 40/40 Smiting Prayer set
  • Enchanting Set for casting SoJ
  • High energy set

Usage

<pvxbig>

  • Follow the tank and:
    • Cast Retribution [[Retribution] + Essence Bond [[Essence Bond] on the tank.
    • Take the blessing from the priest.
    • Cast Air of Superiority [[Air of Superiority] + Holy Wrath [[Holy Wrath] before the tank aggro's a mob.
    • Wait for the tank to take aggro (the Finisher also has to wait).
    • Cast &quot;By Ural&#039;s Hammer!&quot; [["By Ural's Hammer!"] + Intensity [[Intensity], and Holy Wrath [[Holy Wrath] when you can (For small groups - You should have enough energy).
    • Cast Shield of Judgment [[Shield of Judgment] too (For massive groups - You should have enough energy).
    • Always keep Air of Superiority [[Air of Superiority] on you to recast quickly, remove conditions, gain Health, or gain Energy. The extra experience given can help you in decreasing Death Penalty.

</pvxbig>

Notes

  • This build is much faster, but is riskier as well.
  • The healing from the boosted Favor Divine helps the tank slightly.
  • Only 2 Bonds grants you 2 extra Energy regeneration pips.
  • You need to have fairly high ranks in Asura, Dwarf, and Sunspear title tracks to be efficient.

Counters

  • Getting killed.
  • In a fast run (or with a slow Wallow team), wallows might still be patrolling the area when killing the Rit Boss, so keep an eye on the compass.

Variants

<pvxbig>

  • The tank may ask for Vital Blessing [[Vital Blessing] or Life Attunement [[Life Attunement]. Replace one of the PvE skills to fit, and move atrributes from Divine to Prot.

Beach Team

Beach Smiter

Attributes and Skills

<pvxbig> [build prof=Mo/? smi=12+1+3 pro=12+3 divine=3+1][Essence Bond][Retribution][Vital Blessing][Holy Wrath][Shield of Judgment]["Blessed Signet"][Ebon Vanguard Assassin Support][Rebirth][/build] </pvxbig>

Equipment

  • As high health as possible
  • A 40/20/20% staff is preferred, but any staff with 20% enchants will do.

Usage

<pvxbig>

  • Cast Essence Bond [[Essence Bond], Retribution [[Retribution], and Vital Blessing [[Vital Blessing] on the Beach Tank, and maintain them.
  • Stay back while the tank aggro's mobs, and wait until all of the melees have stopped moving before casting or recasting your spells.
  • Cast Holy Wrath [[Holy Wrath] and Shield of Judgment [[Shield of Judgment] on the tank upon engage.
  • Renew Holy Wrath [[Holy Wrath] whenever possible, as it will quickly run out otherwise.
  • Use Ebon Vanguard Assassin Support [[Ebon Vanguard Assassin Support] to more quickly take down targets that aren't dying fast enough. You can also use it as a meat shield if you accidentally pull some of the aggro.
  • Cast all enchantments prior to popping any Oni groups, as Shadow Shroud [[Shadow Shroud] prevents any more enchantments afterward. This shouldn't happen, however, because the beach team does not normally travel near any Oni pops.
  • If the tank gets a Condition while fighting Naga, it means he's Dazed. Use Purge Signet [[Purge Signet] on him if you have it.
  • If the tank dies, use Rebirth [[Rebirth] to revive him.

</pvxbig>

Variants

<pvxbig>

  • Life Attunement [[Life Attunement] instead of Vital Blessing [[Vital Blessing]
  • Purge Signet [[Purge Signet] instead of EVAS (shouldn't be needed with experienced tanks).

</pvxbig>

Counters

  • Pulling aggro and dying.

  • A 40/20/20% staff is preferred, but any staff with 20% enchants will do.

Runner

Attributes and Skills

<pvxbig> [build prof=W/P str=12 comma=12]["Incoming!"]["Fall Back!"]["Can't Touch This!"]["I Am Unstoppable!"]["By Ural's Hammer!"][Pain Inverter][Signet of Stamina]["We Shall Return!"][/build]

  • Incoming is interchangeable with &quot;Charge!&quot; [["Charge!"] as the player sees fit.

</pvxbig>

Usage

  • Follow the Beach Smiter, stopping to get the quest Return of the Yeti from Magistrate Kin near the entrance to the zone, until you come to a fork.
  • Split off and run down to where Kayali the Brave is.
  • Make sure you get the aggro of the Naga and bring them close to Kayali's group so that they primarily kill the assassins (most important part), and possibly Kayali. Your job is then done.
  • If any Smiter dies, and that group doesn't have a way to Resurrect him, you may be asked to run over and use a resurrection skill.

Counters

  • Failing to pull enough Naga to the Outcasts.
  • The boss group containing 2 Outcast Assassins, Kayali, and a Death-hand will probably wipe the Naga group. Make sure you kill the Assassins if this happens. It's also possible to pull the farthest Naga group to Kayali's group, though this is very hard.

Variants
