I must have gotten the wrong RU but here it is anyway. I was thinking

5-6-8-11-14-8-18-->7-6-8-17-17-8-21 AB

could go risky and go 5-6-8-17-19-8-21 AB but the first one hits all the break points and doesn't waste points like this would.

The question, 7ST/8SZ? will it be a deal breaker?

For those of you tracking arena RUs, this guy is Control:130108413:JKLI:FJDC

Roll with it, and 7-x-8 is not a problem. There's a small chance it could get little damage, but that is easy to fix. You might want to raise ST to 9 either way, for the SC.

7-6-8-17-17-8-21
Even if it rolls little, it is very nicely viable.
You may never need the SC.
Nice roll!

5-6-8-11-14-8-18 -----> 7-6-8-17-17-8-21 AB (8/7/17/8/12/10) Train ST to 9 for SC suited and the SS

Your probably looking at poor/little with decent chances at normal/normal (I have 3 different 7/7 (ST/SZ) guys who got normal damage) but even so as an aimer poor/little is still quite possibly a 60%+ warrior with those bases. I'd likely go with EP for light, DA/DA for medium, and SC for heavy armors (even before raising ST to 9). Once ST hits 9 substitute the SC or a SS against light armor if he doesn't seem to like the EP very much.

I may be in the minority but I happen to LOVE the EP as a weapon. Quite fast, with a likely riposte bonus, and still gets the chance to bonus damages from the slashing attacks. These are the types of aimers I like to give EP/SC to as well, to avoid the ST too low issue with the SC (In fact I had a 13 ST.....15-15-x-21 aimer who I regularly gave either EP/SC, EP/LO, SC/SC, SC/LO, or LO/SC too depending on armor. He passed away with a 15-9-2 record recently).

Alot of times when I give my aimers a DA I just give them 2. In fact as evidenced above I like to give my aimers an off-hand weapon fairly frequently. It all depends but generally when they are more defensive minded, or when they go in with a DA.

Congrats on that rollup, Benners. It's a beauty! I wouldn't hesitate to make that aimer with your numbers. I get nervous if ST is below 7 but here you've got it. I personally would train it to 9 fairly early, but like Street said you can still use it against heavy armor and he'll probably still carve'em up with it. Good luck with it, hope it's not going into Sunset!

5-6-8-11-14-8-18 should become 11-12-8-11-14-10-18 basher with a war flail.

That way the rest of us can stand a chance against this monster.

I'm wondering if there was some sabotage intended behind LHI's design because almost all the points went into non-skill areas. Maybe there's some competitive issues between LHI and Ben Laughing Either that or it was a jokingly made design.

I was joking. But if Gentle Ben is man enough to try my design, go right ahead. Very Happy

Now, watch he does it, get a +4 attack, wins three tourneys, and graduates in twenty fights with three advanced masters. Cry

We don't think it was a joke. LHI was trying. That is simply the best LHI could do. Rolling Eyes

Idea Perhaps that's why we don't see him in basic much.... he's lost touch with reality! Laughing
