Build:A/Mo_Assacaster



Build:Team - AB Smiteway

Wins in AB by taking advantage of the fact that unintelligent (including Artificially "Intelligent" a.k.a. AI) foes will not kite from RoJ the way they will from other AoE spells. The build also uses 2 knockdowns for use against intelligent foes, and is therefore not simply a gimmick build taking advantage of an AI anomaly.

1.Assacaster

Build:A/Mo_Assacaster

Usage

  • Call targets. KD foes so that they cannot escape from RoJ's effect.
    • Call Iron Palm when moving into a mob of foes so that the Protter can use Balthazar's Aura on you.
    • Human healers are your primary targets, NPC healers are secondary.
    • Note that your Iron Palm target must have a hex or condition, so:
      • Pay particularly close attention to your caller's Scourge Healing targets.
      • A hex can act as a trigger for Iron Palm on foes that are not conditioned for any reason. Coordinate your team's hexes.
  • Be sure not to attempt to KD a foe who is already KDed. Note that it takes 2 seconds for foes to stand up again.

2.Vengeful Smiter

<pvxbig> [build prof=Mo/Rt name="Team - AB RoJway 1.Vengeful Caller" smi=12+1+1 div=8+1 res=10][Ray of Judgment][Reversal of Damage][Vengeful Weapon][Smite Condition][Smite Hex][Scourge Healing][Castigation Signet][Bane Signet][/build] </pvxbig> usage:

  • Call targets. Use Scourge Healing on any target that might receive significant healing.

3.Protter

<pvxbig> [build prof=Mo/E name="Team - AB Quadruple RoJway 3.Protter" smi=12+1+1 pro=10+1 div=8+1][Ray of Judgment][Reversal of Fortune][Judge's Intervention][Guardian][Smite Hex][Protective Spirit][Glyph of Lesser Energy][Balthazar's Aura][/build] </pvxbig> usage:

  • Maintain Guardian on healer by default. Guardian others when advantageous to do so: targets of enemy melee, pre-prot the Iron Palm user during RoJ.
  • If a member of your team is being spiked, using Prot Spirit is your primary responsibility (not RoJ).
  • GoLE→RoJ→Balthazar's Aura on the KDer when it is in range of foes (this is likely to happen when it moves into touch range for Iron Palm).


Equipment:

  • A +5 energy, 20% enchanting, 20/20 prot weapon set.
  • Some standard defensive & high energy weapon sets with Smite & Prot requirements.


variants:

Maintain Guardian on healer by default. Guardian others when advantageous to do so: targets of enemy melee, pre-prot the Iron Palm user during RoJ.

4.Healer

<pvxbig> [build prof=Mo/A name="Team - AB Quadruple RoJway 4.Healer" hea=12+1+1 smi=12+1 div=3+1][Ray of Judgment][Patient Spirit][Dwayna's Kiss][Signet of Rejuvenation][Castigation Signet][Bane Signet][Dark Escape][Return][/build] </pvxbig>
Equipment:

  • A defensive weapon set:
    • +30 health +5 energy crippling weapon
    • +30 health shield with -2 damage while enchanted inscription.
  • Some standard 20/20 & high energy weapon sets with Heal & Smite requirements.

Note: Do not equip an "of enchanting" weapon when casting Patient Spirit.

Usage

  • Healing is your primary responsibility.
  • Patient Spirit→Dwayna's Kiss is your main heal.
  • Use RoJ when your team is not under pressure (and all red bars are full).
  • Dark Escape to counter a spike and/or for IMS.
  • Return to escape from AoE, snares, touch-range skills, melee, projectile spells etc. Optionally follow up by calling a RoJ spike on a foe crippled by Return.

Variants


Dark Escape is less useful if enemies (often confused upon encountering a team of 4 monks) are spiking your teammates rather than you (as they should). In this case, consider another skill in its place:

  • Smite Hex (for a hex-heavy meta)
  • Smite Condition (for a condition-heavy meta)
  • Heal Other

Counters

Running headlong into 12 enemy players at a shrine when you should be capping an undefended shrine first.

Variants

Experienced teams can use Superior Smite runes for increased damage (for faster capping) at the cost of 75 health (making you more vulnerable attacks from enemy teams).
New players who have trouble avoiding enemy teams may opt to add a second healer in place of another build of their choice.
Another option is to swap the RoJ Healer for a Mo/A WoH Shadow Arts Monk with extra prot & heal in place of the usual the hex & condition removal spells. Change the builds as necessary to avoid having 2 players with attribute points in Protection Prayers. Note that this makes the team more defensive and less offensive. This team is referred to as Triple RoJway (while the standard build is called Quadruple RoJway).

Build:Team - AB RoJway

The build also uses 2 knockdowns for use against intelligent foes, and is therefore not simply a gimmick build taking advantage of an AI anomaly.

  • Call targets. Use Scourge Healing on any target that might receive significant healing.

2.KDer

<pvxbig> [build prof=Mo/A name="Team - AB RoJway 2.KDer" smi=12+1+1 div=11+1 dead=6][Ray of Judgment][Reversal of Damage][Smite Condition][Smite Hex][Castigation Signet][Scourge Enchantment][Iron Palm][Entangling Asp][/build] </pvxbig> usage:

  • Iron Palm foes inside RoJ's effect.
    • Call Iron Palm when moving into a mob of foes so that the Protter can use Balthazar's Aura on you.
    • Human healers are your primary targets, NPC healers are secondary.
    • Note that your target must have a hex or condition, so:
      • Pay particularly close attention to your caller's Scourge Healing targets.
      • Scourge Enchantment can also act as a trigger hex for Iron Palm on foes that are not conditioned for any reason.
  • Entangling Asp only after your Iron Palm target stands up again. Note that this takes 2 seconds and gives you time to use a skill or two.
  • Use Scourge Enchantment on players who use enchantments (watch for yellow triangles on monks, dervishes and necros).

3.Protter

<pvxbig> [build prof=Mo/E name="Team - AB Quadruple RoJway 3.Protter" smi=12+1+1 pro=10+1 div=8+1][Ray of Judgment][Reversal of Fortune][Judge's Intervention][Guardian][Smite Hex][Protective Spirit][Glyph of Lesser Energy][Balthazar's Aura][/build] </pvxbig> usage:

<pvxbig>[build prof=any/any][optional][optional][optional][optional][optional][optional][optional][optional][/build]</pvxbig> Optional professions: Rt/any, Mo/any, N/any, D/any Optional skills: Strength of Honor Ritualist healers with 13 Spawning power can be effective casters of Great Dwarf Weapon, but other weapon spells and professions will generally result in reduced performance of the team build.

0 to 5 Optional

Suggestions: Additional frontliners, rangers, minion master

Usage

Everyone: Maintain all enchantments and weapons. Backliner(s): Maintain WoQ on yourself then maintain Great Dwarf Weapon on your frontliners. If may have 2 WoQ ritualists, assign each one to half of the frontliners in your party.

Notes

If Deldrimor ranks are high, then fewer players will be required to maintain Great Dwarf Armor on the whole party. This frees up another slot for an optional skill. Frontliners without Great Dwarf Armor can also be replaced by heroes.

Build:Team - Luxon Zos Shivros Channel Rway FFF


This build farms 325 faction per minute by killing Luxon Adepts in the Zos Shivros Channel Challenge Mission from maximum bow range. This makes it extremely resistant to failure, because the players never step within range of the Adepts' spells.

x8 Expert's Dexterity Ranger

<pvxbig> [build prof=R/any exp=12+2 wil=3+1 mar=12+1+3][Poison Tip Signet][Read the Wind@18][Expert's Dexterity][Triple Shot (Luxon)@12][Forked Arrow@18][Dual Shot@18][Keen Arrow@18]["I Am The Strongest!"@10][/build] </pvxbig>

Equipment

Required:

  • Zealous Flatbow ("of Fortitude" recommended for insurance against failure)

Optional:

  • Sundering (or Poisonus) Flatbow of Fortitude (can be used for a slightly quicker kill in situations when your energy is certain not to run out)
  • Zealous Flatbow of Marksmanship (best mix of damage and e-management)
  • Sundering (or Poisonus) Flatbow of Marksmanship (maximum damage-per-second)

Max armor with Superior Vigor, full Survivor & Vitae (see also Variants)

Usage

1 player is assigned to each of the nearest 4 Luxon Adepts and 2 players to each of the 2 most distant adepts.
Map

Map of Luxon Adepts

  • Upon spawn, each player begins running towards the correct Adept and activates "I Am The Strongest!" (so that it will be recharged when its effect ends).
  • When nearing longbow range of the Adept, activate skills left to right (the ideal time to activate ED is just before the RtW activation completes). Maintain RtW, spam all other skills (activate them immediately upon recharge).
  • After killing an adept, a player heads for another Adept that a teammate needs help with and resigns while on the way.
  • When the last adept is destroyed, the player assigned to it resigns (efficient teams can optionally wait and resign after gaining the 50 faction holdout bonus at 1:00)
  • Repeat (using up-arrow in the chatbox allows faster resignation on repeat runs)

Variants

A/R Expert players may use the following for the fastest possible kill: <pvxbig> [build prof=A/R crit=12+3 wil=3 mar=12][Read the Wind][Triple Shot (Luxon)][Dual Shot][Keen Arrow]["I Am The Strongest!"][Critical Agility][Way of the Master][Critical Eye][/build] </pvxbig>

Equipment

R/any Expert Player Expert player without Assassin primary may use the following for the fastest possible kill: 3 Superior runes to achieve the stats 14E 9W 16M, 20% Marksmanship mods on all bows, max armor with max energy. <pvxbig> [build prof=R/any exp=11+3 wil=6+3 mar=12+1+3][Poison Tip Signet][Read the Wind][Expert's Dexterity][Triple Shot (Luxon)][Forked Arrow][Dual Shot][Keen Arrow]["I Am The Strongest!"][/build] </pvxbig>

Notes

Projected faction per minute calculation: (1 minute mission start timer + 1 minute to destroy all Adepts)/(6 Adepts * 100 faction/Adept + 50 faction holdout bonus) = 325 fpm (LaTeX Equation coming soon) Projected faction per hour calculation: 325 fpm*60 minutes/hour = 19500 faction/hour

If this faction is used for skills or guild, your title increases by about 40k every hour of farming (and 80k on a double rewards weekend).
