13-4-6-17-10-5-15

I got this fellow on a team sheet, today, and I've been puzzling over what to do with him.

Some initial thoughts:
13-8-6-21-10-5-21 AB
13-9-6-21-15-5-15 LU
17-4-6-21-15-6-15 ST

He could realistically be made into at least another 4 styles. What would you do? I can't decide!

Given your goals, I see zero reason to go with the Lunger (though I like those same stats as a TP).

As usually with any high caliber setup, striker often offers the most likely payoff. The others look great if things work out for them, but given average (or even below average) rolls, do not likely impress like the striker does.

Since you are the master of many styles, I'll turn it back to you? What styles do you really want/need right now?

As for me, personally, I'd probably go with a double 21 AB.

I'm leaning towards the ST at the moment. But I'm willing to consider lots of options.

Love!!!! The striker but would switch one thing.
15-4-6-21-15-6-17ST. Tourney boy will get good damage and has enough to wield a battle axe for heavy armor boys. Also picking it because running ABs dive me nuts and wouldie on me

Curious why you would go 15 ST and 17 DF when 17 ST and 15 DF are exactly the same thing Att/Dec wise? Both of them are 12 Attack and 9 Decise

With 17 St you have a better chance of getting more endurance and damage than with 15

If anything I might go lower WL higher SP

11 WL, 10 SP gives you 11 Att and 10 Dec

Having run a bunch of ST's (as I am sure OAB has) a 9 Decise base for a tourney ST is ok early, but not good Adept+

I'd have a hard time not making him an AB, but that is a sweet ST. Thing is, there are so many ST rollups...

Miss you on chat, OAB!

I miss chat, too!

I feel the same way about AB roll-ups. There are just so many of them in the roll-up pool. Its true for STs, too, of course. But for some reason, this seems like a more exceptional ST than it is an AB. I was hoping to find something non-ST/non-AB to make, but I don't want to force the roll-up to be something its not.

I'll probably look at it for a few days longer before deciding. I need something to keep me occupied until Tuesday.

I have this guy, and went 17-4-6-21-10-5-21 AB. Can't say he's really done well, but that could just be me running it wrong. He's 4-1 in the arena but 3-6 in the tournies. He entered this one as an Init with 30 Attack (straight mode so far).
I'm not suggesting this is the best way to make it, or anything, just an example of what hasn't worked (yet!).

Non- AB/ST? o.k., how about:

15-10-6-21-10-5-17 PR

Could also be a Slasher, with any numbers that can get normal endurance.

There was a time when I would have done exactly as you did. If this guy ends up Dec favorite learn, you look like a genius. If he ends up one of the other favorite learns, his basic career doesn't go as well, I've found.

Still, a double-21 AB has a future in ADM, so its never a terrible choice.

17-4-6-21-10-5-21 PS would be my first non-ab/st option. I would also be fine with 17-8-6-21-10-5-17 TP. Either way, beautiful rollup!

GB, that's actually an excellent PR design. I would consider that, too... NOT a lot of really good PR designs out there.

PR is a good idea. If I went that route, I would go 17 ST/15 DF, but definitely worth considering.
