    Hybrid tvt tactics

    Sorry I just keep asking questions :) . I'm really enjoying doing tvt with my wolf and I'm getting alot of compliments on my wolf .but I've got no idea what stratagies to use. I know this will vary depending on who where facing and who's in my team . Generally I'm teamed with a mage and a trapper at the moment I run around trying to infect a high res or high life char. You'd be surprised how many infected players run to team mated and pass rabies on ;)
    . But would I be better playing a defensive role ie protecting trapper or go offensive and try useing palas auras to kill . Conviction with a trapper and rabies seems deadly ^^ . any thoughts are welcome as I'm still only used to public duels

    IIRC, Conviction only lowers Fire, Light, and Cold Res. I believe LR does work however.

    I only play SP, and don't duel, so I can't say anything I mention will work. Do you use enigma, or FR/W? If you have a summon, cast it on the other side of a player running away (though most prob tele) and see if you can get a bite in...?

    Yes your right about conviction dammit ;( dw and 20/20 shield must be dropping res enough . Yer I have about 100 frw when I'm team duelling and I've duelled in pubs with the Mage player for a long time so he uses vigor for me sometimes . With bo 9 k life dysncing ninja wolf ;)

    Conviction doesn't lower poison res.

    You're a Striker. You're job is normally to make the squishies lives a living hell. Personally I'd order priority:

    Highest damage dealer
    Support
    Tank

    Your Trapper can usually protect them self as long as the don't go silly. Mages just kinda do their thing >.>. If they start trying to focus the Trapper though go back and protect her. Best Shift Fury opportunity :D.

    Re: Hybrid tvt tactics

    I love team duels and I love my singer so I was a pretty strong support/Offensive character depending on the situation.

    Try to encourage a bit more cohesion within your team. Your trapper seems very offensive so your job would be to hassle and break up the opposing team and force them towards the trapper while keeping in roughly the same area for your protection as being separate allows decent teams to double team you.

    Ill give a example of a team duel I had.
    The players were
    Singer (Support)
    Trapper(Support/Offence)
    Whirlwind barb(Offence)

    We were all in voice contact so working together was easy.

    My job was to basically cast a extremely high level battle orders and a medium Shout and hassle or set up other players for my team-mates to capitalize on. I have 2 tools leap and Warcry. Basically the duels entire strategy was....

    Trapper - Break apart the opposition to scatter them
    Singer - After the players have scattered detect a loner and use leap while on screen to momentarily stun him enough for me to get a solid warcry train on him.
    WW Barb - Has been told of my target and teleports in and tri-whirls the target to death while singer is warcrying and leaping to keep them stunlocked.

    The vast majority of players encountered have a average FHR breakpoint and usually not blockers in pubbys so in private duels a singers effectiveness it not quite as useful so were unable to replicate the success.

    Thats a example

    Talk with your team and develop a effective 3 character combo that covers a weakness in each players build and develop a game plan otherwise I guarantee a decent team would rip your entire team to shreds.

    A well balanced and cohesive team can outplay vastly superior geared individuals. Your likely not to encounter a effective team in public games though.

    Re: Hybrid tvt tactics

    I would suggest a windy for team duels if that is what you meant. Breakpoints I would go for is 163/152 for best results since dr does not mean much in team duels since amp will be all over the place.

    IIRC you don't need a Conc Aura to hit 20+k I'd have to look though but I'm fairly certain.
