Specs and RAs for many classes

Conversations about the Gaheris server.

Specs and RAs for many classes

Postby giledoms » Thu May 09, 2013 8:03 pm

The goal of this post is to aggregate some of the more general (see cookie cutter) specs for playing on Gaheris.

This list is built based on specs I found on the internet and from the following forum posters (in no particular order):
1) Warriorperson
2) Pentegarn
3) Electro

UPDATED: 31 May 13

Could use some other builds!

Archer builds are always welcome and some solo builds!

DISCLAIMERS:

1) I do not directly credit each spec author, since that is not practical. The same spec may have been posted many times by many different posters, but I only mention the poster that I found to have posted the spec

2) I do not claim that these specs are the “best” spec or the only way to spec. This post is to promote discussion and help new players with their specs

3) I may cut/paste specs from posters without quoting them and may edit their specs to elaborate a bit. If I quote you, your name is in the above list.

4) If there is an error of a spec or I miss understood its purpose please send me a PM and I will fix it

General RA Advice:

Main Tanks (Heavy Tanks): MTs can fill both the MT and blocker role. They need to be able to hold threat and help survive heavy hits in the main tank role. Therefore, the following RAs are recommended: MoBlock, Dashing Defense, Ignore Pain, Avoidance of Magic, Toughness, Augmented Constitution and Augmented Dexterity are all helpful to survive tanking or blocking.

Blockers: The key RA to max first is Mastery of Blocking (MoB). After you max that you want to max Augmented Dex (Aug Dex), since Dex does impact blocking (.05 block per point or 20 for 1% block). Can max both by 4L8.

Casters: For pure DPS keep the Mastery of Magery (MoM), Wild Power (WP), and Augmented Acuity (Aug Acu) levels equal and level them in order I listed (MoM1, WP1, Aug Acu 1, MoM2, ect.). If you are casting spells from a line that is less than level 50 you need to put points in Mastery of Focus (MoF) before you do anything else. (Note: MoF can not take spells above 50, so if your spell line is 50 you do not need it and if your spell line is 48 you only need first rank to be max). If you find you need mana regen (like on a bainshee to afk farm) put points in serenity as well.

Healers: More powerful and less costly heals is the name of the game so you want Mastery of Healing and Wild Healing. Divine Intervention (DI) and Perfect Recovery (PR) are also very helpful if your healing class can obtain them.

Making a comprehensive list is difficult, because there are probably millions of possible specs, and most combinations are viable in a group setting. You could cover the most common cookie-cutter builds fairly easily, but a lot of classes rewards split speccing if done intelligently.

Yup, I agree with what you have to say. I am focusing more on players like me who haven't played in so long that just knowing some good specs to start out with makes the game much more enjoyable. For example, I did not know Dex made such a huge difference for Blocking until I looked at your warden spec. I am going to update the list with several general specs I found later today.

Actually dex probably effects blocking the least out of all the variables, so if you need to drop 10 or 15 dex in your template, it's not that big of a deal. I'm not saying you should ignore templating dex or using dex buffs completely, but if you can make an amazing template that might not be amazing if you have 101 dex, I say go ahead and keep it amazing.

BiggehDon, thank you for pointing out. It has been corrected. On another note this is a work in progress and I still have to add several other specs and get some RA recommendations for most of the classes, which I hope to do this week.

Thanks a lot Tork.

I linked this from the DAOC Knowledge page, renamed it, changed the formatting, and edited the headings slightly.

Only one substantive change was made: replaced "buffer" with "chants" in name of pally spec. I assume that was a typo.

Going to give this a try for a class I don't see listed. I'm doing this partially based on relearning the game and partially from experience over half a decade ago (on RvR/RP servers at that) so I'm not offended by corrections (and YMMV)...

Valewalker
Type of spec: spell or melee DPS with some limited support (diseases, off tanking, respectable positional styles)
Works well with: Lol, Alone. In duos/groups, rarely the best addition to a combo or group but also rarely the worst. (Note: if with partner(s) who debuff resists, or you can find mobs weak to them, later melee styles are Heat dmg, lifetap is Energy)
Used well: If you really like Hybrids, if Friar and Thane both didn't feel quite right. Solo, best used with some room to move (Grasping Roots style + stepping back mid fight + lifetap, learn it, love it). Groups, come to terms that you're not the most useful but learn you're rarely redundant with anyone so you're a solid +1, you also require little healing support.
Spec
50 Scythe, 40 Arboreal, 15 Parry [if castable AoE disease interests you] <--- having tried both, 1.5% parry isn't worth losing AoE disease
50 Scythe, 39 Arboreal, 18 Parry [if it does not, if you like specs that spend literally every point]
ML path: Neither is exceptional, I went Stormlord because 50 scythe sets you on styles and powers 1 and 10 are both usable. I read some people do Battlemaster for Faultfinder.
CL path: Stat buff line strikes me as the most useful, though I'm not deep down it yet.
First RA's
playing with what I could solo with just my initial 20-30 RA pts...
MoFocus 2, MoPain 4-5, MoParry 4-5, WildPower 2-3, Aug Dex 4-5, Ignore Pain 1 contender for spare pts [the rare fight you start OoMana or not enough space to grasping roots+step back+lifetap]
RA note
MoConcentration 3-4+ was useful in RvR days but on Gaheris grasping roots/step back/lifetap is soooo much easier to pull off (and unintended adds less likely), those 15-22+ pts I wouldn't consider til mid-high RR at earliest.

Alternate Spec (if grouping assured)
46 Arboreal, 44 Scythe, 17 Parry [have not tried, friend used for grouping back in day (looking offhand, instant disease, less need for conflag since not solo*, better group dps buff]
*note: I would never give up 50 scythe/conflag if solo.

I often play toons with very un-cookiecutter specs, so here are a few alternatives. I am not going to list what my gear is, nor the order in which I chose my RA's, I don't have that much time tbh.

Midgard, Hunter:
38 sword
45 beastcraft
50 archery
3 stealth
Perks: can use 1h or 2h, after champ 3 can use a small shield w/ 1h, can charm a level 45 pet, and cast an insta pet as well. High damage from archery. Their RR5 actually cancels root till the timer runs out.

RA: Aug Dex VI (cuz I'm a dorf), AoM V, MoPain VIII, Falcon's Eye IX, Determination III, Wild MInion VI, Toughness II @ RR 9L1


Hibernia, Animist:
36 Arboreal
4 Creeping
40 Verdant
Perks: yellow pet pbaoe, pbt through harbinger pet, aoe and single target bombers, forest hearts, yellow abs realm buff, root and resist realm turrets, decent single target lifetap.

RA: Aug Acuity III, Serenity III, Wild Power IX, MoFocus V, aug dex IV, aug con III, physical defense VIII, MoMagery VI @ RR 9L1

I'll add more later if there is interest, I play these toons from solo to raids and they work well once you learn the ins and outs.

That's an interesting hunter spec. I never thought about the fact that you really don't need much in the way of stealth for pve.

aye power shot really eliminates the need for stealth at all, the draw time is long, but unlike crit shot which pierces a bubble and leaves it intact (like on mystics in the laby), power shot goes through with high damage and bursts the bubble. Some people like stealth for sneaking around and exploring but imho why sneak when you can clear the path ;)

Grevdar beat me to it Apath, I had been contemplating a Hunter for my last unused Mid spot, thinking I might have to give it a try.

I don't think I'd totally tank stealth but I'd been planning on a composite 44-50 stealth and your post made me realize... why? If I just aim for 25/36, most of which can come from items or RR's, I'll still be able to move and stay hidden when I need to and that enables SOOOOOO many other toys by shaving off those points.

---

Touching on one of the original specs from this thread...

"Mauler

Focus Pull Support spec
--Type of spec: Uses Mauler hots and damage reduction to greatly incrase pet surviablity in focus pulling groups
--Works well with: Excellent in focus pulling groups
--Used for: Focus pulling
--Point Distribution: 45 magnetism 44 aura mauler
--First RA’s to get: Toughness, aug con. For CL should choose warlord as it provides extra stackable no threat healing and omni heal
"

Is this still considered useful/desirable?

I was debating rolling up a Mauler, looks like something that might be able to solo okay as well as offer something more for popular PVE group builds than anything I've rolled up so far. Wanted to check it was still useful before I put the time in.

The particular spell in Magnetism line that makes Mauler’s useful for focus pulling still works and is useful in certain circumstances.
I’m not sure how desired it is in groups though, I would imagine not particularly.
If you are running a Mauler as a bot for focus pulling it’s a waste of a spot imho. If running only 2 toons you lose buffs, and best 3 toon focus pulling set up for high level mobs is Focus toon/Druid/Mentalist IMO of course).

Maulers play fine solo with a different spec, a bit like a Friar with less damage mitigation and better DPS (50 FW eats through yellows to low reds)

Yeah 45mag 44aura is not a spec for normal play. When my mauler is that spec they only cast 2 spells; absorb on a chanter pet and the group HoT, and occasionally Warlord ML abilities, and literally nothing else. It's really just a bot spec.

Electro wrote:Yeah 45mag 44aura is not a spec for normal play. When my mauler is that spec they only cast 2 spells; absorb on a chanter pet and the group HoT, and occasionally Warlord ML abilities, and literally nothing else. It's really just a bot spec.


So that spec (I think I had been looking at 48 AM, 44 Mag, 29 Staff) wouldn't benefit much from being played by a human over a 2nd account bot then.

How many viable Mauler specs are there then for Gaheris? Just the 50 FW, 41+ PS, rest AM I see all over the internet? Or are there any that make use of AM or Mag. outside RvR and botting?

I sincerely doubt it, also I think you would get pretty bored actively playing that spec. As Electro mentioned it really boils down to casting two spells.
I suppose if you were playing as a live toon you could pitch in with other things like using the side style stun?

I've seen people mention 41PS/44AM/39 weapon, this gives you better survivability with 40% parry buff from PS, best HoT and Offensive heal proc in AM.
I've never tried it but honestly, Maulers are pretty fun. I would make one and play around with specs, respec stones are cheap as chips these days.

Spearvalk solo
50 spear, 45 parry, 35 heal 5 odin. Ra's at r6, max moparry 23%, augdex 48, mofocus 17 levels, longwind1, serenity1,
the mofocus allows both the level 32 windmill crush aoe as well as the 41 roundhouse aoe proc to land as a level 50 spell.
Spearvalk with a guard
50 spear 41 parry, 42 heal, 8 odin, Ra's could drop moparry to either max augstr for higher weaponskill or momagery, possibly change mofocus from 17 levels to 9 and get some moheal instead.
at 42 heal +25% toa heal and moheal, a valk is going to generate oodles of agro with the 800+ healing, but would require a very high rr to get the full defense of 44 spec parry+11+10% eq.
Usually use focal myth to allow procs to land as lv 54 spells, sometimes switch to parry myth when pulling 25 yellows-reds.
I template defense with activated Aten Shield, Battler, Som and Scalars, and wore lug spear for the + to hit, + parry, and the ablative.
CL evade buff works wonders if well buffed.
In my opinion, Odin's Will is just for rvr and is a waste of spec points on gaheris and if even the low level pulse is left on long, will drain power for nothing other than a little bit more agro.
First ra's to get, augdex, moparry, mofocus.
