View Full Version : Spirits Killing
I have heard all this talk about spirits getting in the way and causeing problems. My question is how exactly do the spirits kill some one. Do the spirits kill them are do they just slow down the players damage. -Thanks
With a high lvl fertile spirit, the spirits have so much life it's impractical trying to kill them. They can be used to block heroes, protect allies, block relics etc
Then how do the all spirit teams win? Do they bore teams to death?
Basicly. they make it so that noone has any hope of moving more then 2 inches or they make it so that they match lasts so long that everyone on the other team quits.
A bit unfair to say it like that.....from my experience spirit builds screws up everything anyone does....however if the spirit team is smart they will bring heavy DoT type attacks, distractions, and all be wearing armour with Cold/Ice/Water resistance thus minimizing the damage dealt to them and keeping up a heavy offensive and stopping others from doing things...however....spirit teams i've been in result in me saying "Well....how we planning to deal out damage?" and then getting kicked....if done right spirit builds are a good way to win...if done wrong they drag a match out for hours with no winner...even tho im a ranger i stay out of the spirits section, as i dont really want to be spaming spirits and then hitting called target for 2 because i have no attack skills etc.
Rule1. dont run into their spirit field
Rule2. after the above they will lay spirits closer to you in the free ground between teams, have a ranger shoot them out
Rule3. have a ranger eagle on a ranger that is dropping the most troublesome spirits most often (one carrying oathshot most likely) use disrupts to stop any further spirits and pin them down to keep them still for a pounding.
Rule4. pick out each ranger like this and each time spirits go up have the ranger shoot them out, i am the single ranger in my HoH team and I manage it against mass ranger groups quite often.
Rule5. the lesson is, don't let them begin the battle in a spirit infested nest, shoot at a distance with a long range bow to pick off spirits, some will expire also while they attempt to cripple and kill you when you get too close (prot and healing monks will only need to worry about you)
Rule6. Don't have an ele snipe the spirits, you want them to be dealing damage to the enemy monks and making the kills, a ranger is the best counter to ranger spirits due to long range, good damage and ability to do lots of interrupts on the long cast times.
Rule7. Aoe is king when they group their spirits, a fire ele is an asset in any pvp team due to this and many other reasons. Ignite arrows is also a good choice for spirit killing.
I do it regularly and I'm sure the rangers I hunt start crying soon, in fact it has made me prime target several times because they could not keep spirits up or even cast some of them. Whoever heard of killing that single ranger first? :P
Edge of Extinction is becoming more popular because not only does it own for KOTH, but it can destroy all the spirits in the given area in about 10% of the time it would take if you went after them manually.
