Forum:Renewing combat training guides
Lately, I have noticed that most of the combat guides are in fragments, a combination of old and new monsters/methods. I have gotten tired of this, and am offering to completely rewrite the guides. It would be mostly 2-3 monsters per genre, but would most likely be added to fairly quickly. Leave your opinion below.22:29, June 6, 2013 (UTC)
Comment - With the advent of EoC, most of the strategies for (pretty much every) monsters generally the same.
Action bar 2 - Mage
Wrack Sonic wave Impact Chain Combust Dragonbreath Asphyxiate Wild Magic Regenerate Rejuvenate Mystic Might Food
Using a Polypore Staff with a Dragonfire shield in inventory to utilize Rejuvenate.
Action bar 4 - Melee(Dung)
Slice Punish Smash Cleave Sever Kick Regenerate Ultimate Strength Dungeon Home Teleport Create Gatestone Gatestone Teleport Group Gatestone Teleport
I don't use food for dungeons after EoC.
Action bar 5 is empty
For melee, use Slice/Punish and Resonance/Preparation to build up Adrenaline before using Berserk. Then immediately build up for Assault, then immediately use Sever (and maybe Kick if it's a boss) before doing the same.
For mage, I just use Wrack/Sonic Wave along with the 4 abilities next to it just to get enough Adrenaline to use Asphyxiate/Wild Magic. I usually reserve the threshold abilities for enemies with full health, so it won't waste Adrenaline.
- Didn't you read the title? It's RENEWING COMBAT TRAINING GUIDES. I.E., from level 40 to level 50, kill rock crabs. Where did you get that from? 23:45, June 6, 2013 (UTC)
- That's a good strategy, Jlun2, for those with the levels to use all those abilities. It doesn't help with what to kill and when, however.
Comment - good plan, Ice Rush. No objection from me on a complete rewrite of the guides.23:52, June 6, 2013 (UTC)
In what way should I rewrite them? Should I separately type them out, then submit them, or spam backspace, then rewrite right then and there?22:35, June 7, 2013 (UTC)
- Well spamming backspace seems terribly inefficient. Highlighting and pressing delete is far better.
- I'd say write the new versions of the pages up either on word/open office/other word processor of your choice or in your own sandbox (User:Ice Rush12/Sandbox, or whatever you want to call it), and then replace the entire page with your new version when they're done. This minimises the risk of edit conflicts, "loss of session data" and other large-edit frustrations. 22:38, June 7, 2013 (UTC)
