my 3box team...
« on: February 18, 2009, 12:38:39 PM »
recently i decided to pull the beastlord out of bot status, and start to actually work on him.  by no means is he uber or will i ever claim that he is uber, but for right now he is a better tank then my 69 warrior.  currently he is just shy of 12k hp, 2040 ac, and an "amazing" 8 shielding (i dont think magelo is current but will update it later today)..

then i decided that i wanted to get a real tank, because i know sooner or later there will be something my beast lord wont be able to tank, and since i refuse to use the merc's.. i moved my gimp_warbot01 to his own account and started threeboxing. 

my main who's a cleric has been the foundation to this new litte group of own (or at least i hope).. and he's "decently" geared..

but i've hit a brick wall when it comes to where to level gimp_warbot01.. i want to take the warrior to 70, get a few hundred aa (RSS sounds tastey at that level) until the warrior can actually start tanking something.. as of right now in mpg its pull with the BL, slow, send in pet, hit auto attack... send in war_bot turn on auto attack kick, knee strike, set it and forget it... then heal as needed with the cleric.. and finally go back to BL to finish off the mob.
but being that the cleric is 81, and the BL is 78.. they are sucking up xp like a ShamWOW sucks up water... is there a better place that doesnt require alot of work (kind of like MPG's set it and forget it style), or am i doomed for now to stick to MPG?

Remove cleric from group, and heal by hotkey.  Stay in MPG (likely), or hit up a hotzone.  MPG has very few hitpoints for the xp, and is good up until 74 or so, imo (lower w/ the bst tank being higher though).

If WAR is 69 though, you should try out RSS - he can zone in, so take a look see...w/ a cleric, your bst will have no issues tanking there (mine did at 70 w/ most group gear, and a 5k mana cleric bot)  XP is good there duo until you turn 78 and mobs go light blue...so, should be very good duo w/ the BST.
TURNCOAT!!!!!

Yes agree. If you ever want to pwr aa or level a toon keep toons out of the group and just make sure u do more dps. I got about 500 aa's so far with new expan with having my cleric out of group and me just dpsing away. You may want to look at  SSRA or CoD hotzone.

small update to my ordeal...

well its not quite set it and forget it as i'd like.. but as long as i dont get confused on which window i'm jumping to (three boxing off one machine).. i'm fine..

even with the cleric and beast lord in the group, xp is as far as i care, kicking ass and taking names.. (its not the 10% it was when either toon was level one, but eh we'll never match that again)

i've found that he can even hold his own against the statue camp (granted i dont want him being the "main tank" just yet.. aggro issues).. and i've only wiped once, but thats due to the lovely pathing in the zone and mobs wanting to bring half the area with them if you're too close to the statue..

iirc when sk was 65ish I stopped him and just slaughtered cubbies in wos for aa. He got all his runes and I made probably 500-600 k on runes all said and done hehe (could reach and keep down 9-10 named phs). I think I leveled to 67 and worked all important aa and then moved to MPG or something.
As a side note 71-75 aa in valdeholme if there are no asshats permacamping the pit >.<
