This last week/weekend was a bit of a challenge. The Gurobo’s have been passing around something making each other sick or we knock the illness down only for it to climb back up and try to take us down again. The wife is recovering the slowest but i think once she is mostly over it she will be done. I have more training this week Tues-Fri and it is currently -0.1 . Aka fuckin cold. I thought i was over all this shit last week then i spent the day training, 7+ hours out in the cold hardly moving as the main carrier had the heater blowing on him and jumping in and out of the LLV. Burrrrr.
So lets just say other then laying on the couch watching Stargate: Atlantis and wrapping up Rescue Me; I have been rocking the xps on Butterz. I really like where she is right now, well except in the DPS area but I just need to deal with that as there is not a ton more i can due in that department other then a few hard to handle tweaks.
So time for another project. I am thinking Java.
For whatever reason he went from being super fun and almost unstoppable to not so much in a single TR, TO THE SAME BUILD. Tobril keeps trying to convince me that it has to be something to do with the enchantment changes but I just think that maybe the melee/caster hybrid dog is not going to work any longer. So it is time to pick a horse I guess and go with it. And i am thinking melee, that was Java’s original role so time to get back on it.
So to that end i swapped out of the skullsmasher that i was not proficient with without help and looked to my Raid box for help. First of all i had an Toughness feat that i could swap if i wanted to pick up a proficiency. Sure i could have taken simple weapons and gone back to the Skullsmasher but i want to try something “more powerful” at least in a vacuum.
Tinah, looks good and there is the benefit of having one or two other long swords in my pack pocket, but it feels less strong combaired to some of the other weapons. Tobril is currently using a Celestia on his current life and while it seems powerful I would rather keep open the idea of a bard doing CC for EEs. Right now about the time i have everything hit with a song Tobril has run in hit his 18 cleave buttons and woken the whole area with the Sunburst effect. Balisarde, would do a ton of work. Java is mostly way under geared (like most of my alts) so it wouldn’t be a bad call. But the dps would be a joke. Mornh, isn’t bad at all, but I have stunning/seeker covered in the off hand. So then there was the dagger and the bastard sword. Both are good, Agony wouldn’t need a feat swap but is less good then Nightmare. Which is all upside other then that whole the only bastard sword i have is it thing.
Okay so debate; what one handed web weapon is the best for a melee dog?
Also keep warm thoughts in mind for KS this week. Damn it is like hell is freezing over.
