Barb merc

Post by mahitovec on Tue Dec 24, 2013 10:18 pm

I want to talk about his bonuses.

A1
Code:
Starts with 30 energy, +6 energy per level
Defensive Harmony: slows attackers by 25%, +1% per 5 levels


A2
Code:

Starts with 20 energy, +4 energy per level
Suppression: crushing blow 25%, +1% per 5 levels
Grit: damage reduced by 25%, +1% per 5 levels


A3
Code:

Starts with 200 energy, +20 energy per level
Unearthly Power: +250 energy factor to spell damage, +5 per level
Warp Armor: total defense +250%, +10% per level


A5
Code:
Starts with 10 energy, +2 energy per level
Mountain King: 20% bonus to strength and dexterity, +1% per 2 levels

Looks "a bit" unfair. A2 mercs get almost 40 free cb and dr while barb gets dex and str which are useless on merc anyway. Barb mercs might have some more useful bonuses i guess. Archer's bonus is awful too but they got sol rw atleast ^^

However, the great issue in mercs is the dying chance... inmortal mercs, or afk mercs when their life goes to zero, they can be a far more useful...From there, Act III is 1 of the best mercs, cause GOIF spell (insta heal) and warp armor (crazy defense). None other merc can do that, and cause tht, they die very often in ubers...

Lastly, barb and act II merc, both have a great problem: they're melee...meaning they can't stay alive in ubers or v/s bosses...

the trick under barb merc is, you can always equip him with dmg to motw OR spell dmg to motw items... which adds really ridic advantage Smile
same thing goes to act2 merc too but spell dmg to bloodlust bonus items are generally amason specific(iirc still)..
also SoR debuff and summon more gay barb is another cool instruments they have.

i agree they are decent, but they might have some avoid or something else to have because current bonus sucks

but i think u dont have to pay too much attention to merc because they are almost useless in late game especially when you come with uberquests, the best idea is to equip yourself well (this is my experience gained through playing  Blob Blob Blob Blob

Mountain king makes Tennousuuhai easier to wear, not useless to me. Not to mention the high damage they can spit out, the great buffs, nice slew of gear choices, and his near immortality when compared to you and other mercs. Best merc of the bunch imo.

Maybe Dizzy !! And as i said this is my own experience  Bouncing Mr. Green , i just wanna put forward an idea and hope to help him in someway  Spinning Mr. Green But you can see im talking about late game Mr Green's Umbrella and i myself see that thay cant be in the role of a shield to guard you when coming with ubermonster, as well as almost not able to help with bosses that instakill you Mr. Green's Weed , (but anyway their damage and buff can be useful in certain situations  Blob )
