My dears,

Post by manekineko » Mon Nov 12, 2007 12:57 pm

I want to play videogames again. It's been a while and while now isn't necessarily a perfect time, it will be soon.

What are you guys playing in terms of a team setup? Any space for a medic? I imagine that spot is filled by Tally already but I thought I may offer to do it, especially if you'd prefer something else.

If not, let me know what you need. Just keep in mind that I much prefer a support character.

I'm currently working towards a medic, Terry towards an exobiologist, and Tyler towards a Guardian.

I do plan, however, on working on a Spy alt. If you wanted to play a medic, we could do an alt setup with you, since your time is sometimes limited and our schedules don't match up a lot.

If that doesn't strike your fancy, keep in mind that pretty much all of the specialist branch is pretty supporty. Actually, TR does a pretty good job of having all the classes support each other in some way (for example, everyone gets a signature ability at 30 that benefits the entire party). And even heavy support classes like medics aren't ALL support (injector guns are supposed to dish out some really nice damage). If you decide to not go with medic, engineers also look like an excellent support class. Who DOESN'T love people who can make portals to and from the field of battle? I know I'd love to know an engineer and you're sexy enough to pull it off, I'm sure! http://tr.stratics.com/content/combatan ... gineer.php

Tell me what you think, Matt! The game is really immersive, and I've been really impressed with the missions so far. There are a ton of quests (and I mean a TON!), but I think you're a big quest fan, right? And it's made by the creator of Ultima, so I think you're pretty much required to play, right?

matt: all of the specialist classes have the ability to use tools, which is what is used to heal/repair shields (armor, in this game, manifests much like protooss psi shields in starcraft, and this is actually the bulk of one's hitpoints -- thus, the 'repair' tool actually sees more use than the 'heal' tool). I think you could make a very nifty demolitionist or engineer healer, because they get one of the best armors in the game!

In fact, I would strongly encourage the engineer; if you played that and managed to catch up to tally's medic at some point, we'd be nearly invincible as a party. medic's sig. ability grants insane (500%) health and mana regen for 2mim at the cost of 100% adren. (but remember, health is really just your last slight chance; armor is where it's at), and the engineer's sig. ability grants GOOD damage mitigation (50%) and insane shield regen (900%!!) for 1 min at the cost of 100% power (which could easily be fully regened by the medic's sig!!).

engineers can also construct turrets, bots, traps and wormholes... wormholes = porting to base and back from anywhere... I want an engineer friend!!! I'd imagine they'd be invaluable to a control-point defense or offense, as well as in instances.

totally pulling it out of my ass, here's the engineer template I'd run:

http://zeus.jrq.ch/trcb/?x=503613115110 ... 4138149144

quick run down:
with 5 firearms and 5 polarity guns, your normal damage should be GOOD.
with 3 tools, your healing and repair will be above average, and you'll have a rez.
mech body armor = leet.
the rest, I'm not really sure about... but defiantely at least 4 wormhole please ;)

I agree, we'd have amazing synergy as an engineer and a medic. It would pwn my face off.

So this is my vision for TR: Terry is an exobiologist; Tyler is a guardian; Tally is a medic; I'm an engineer; Jeff is a demolitionist; Mompas is a grenadier; Nok is a sniper.
