Alright, as some of you might know, I've started up an Arena of Death. Usually, we don't advertise here in the subforums when we're trying to get participants, but this time I'm trying to do something special. I'm trying to host the largest arena ever on this site. To do that, I need your help.
This isn't an arena for veterans only, so arena newbies are welcome. In fact, you are encouraged to join. Players are battling for the glory of their respective races, so you won't have to worry about fighting against your Dwarven compatriots until later rounds.
To join in the fun, all you need to do is create a character worth 260pts. Heroes are welcomed, and even get an extra magic item alotment. Name your character, maybe write up a little fluff, and either PM him/her to me, or follow the City of Shadows link in my sig (where you can also find the full rules for the arena). If you want, you can even just post your entrant in this thread! It's a first-come, first serve basis and I've only got room for 3 stout Dwarves, but I want to see what you've got.
The dwarves make for some sturdy characters in the arenas, but the common complaint is that the usual 250pt limit rules out the best of your character builds. Well, fret no more: not only can you go up to 260pts, but you can also start equipping your warriors with excellent dwarven pistols and crossbows thanks to the addition of a shooting phase! So, if you happen to be a wandering slayer or just want to settle a few racial grudges- this arena is the place for you. For the Pride of the Dwarves!
I was reading this, and he seems to indicate that 260 points is a required amount for a decent Lord build. I am wondering, is there such a default build? What build would you all use if you were to try out for this?
This is one i just threw together, a defensive minded build:
Rune of Preservation
Rune of Iron x2
Rune of Breaking.
This gives the lord a 2+ armor save, a 5+ ward save, immunity to killing blow/poison, and it allows him to destroy his opponents weapon on a succesful hit, giving him 6 attacks back in following rounds. Its not very offensive, but if you can survive that first round, you have a decent chance of reducing the opponent to hand weapon for his attacks.
What do you guys think?
Darnit, I dun have me book with me, but I be proposing that ye other lads fit in the ruin of might in there somewhere. Very good fer those hard to kill baddies.
May the Emperor forgive you, for his servants cannot.
The issue i had with Rune of Might, was that in order for this to work, you would have to hit first, as your not going to have enough defense to survive an enemy that can do Killing Blow/No Armor Saves allowed. In order to do that, you have to have MRoSwiftness, which is impossible, as it is 2 Master runes on one weapon.
Howerver, i would be very interested to see any builds you guys can come up with, if for no other reason than to see what an Uber Dwarf Challenge Lord would look like.
