I'm gonna start posting builds here soon.

HA Decap Spike

Warrior

<pvxbig> [build prof=War/Assassin axe=12+1+1 strength=12+1 shadow=3][Executioners Strike][Body Blow][Decapitate][Bull's Strike][Rush][Flail][Death's Charge][Resurrection Signet][/build] </pvxbig>

Equipment

Personal preference between armor vs elemental damage, or survivors. Make sure to put a Stonefist insignia on your hands. Zealous Axe and Furious Axe. Bring a sundering/vamp if you want as well.

Usage

You're the caller, and the major part of the spike. Your job is to build up adrenaline, then spike an unsuspecting target.

Equipment

Survivor's with a stonefist (duh). Furious, sundering, vamp or elemental hammer.

Usage

  • Maintain Splinter Weapon on your frontliners at all times
  • Hold Glaives Ashes at all times. Note: make sure you manually drop the ashes, if they drop from time expiration they will not trigger damage.
