Ok, till now I've never met another Explosive MM(for anyone who doesn't know it's a Rt/N which uses Boon of Creation, Explosive Growth, Animate Bone Minions and Death Nova as his main skills) and I'm still wondering why as it's REALLY effective(more than a standard MM IMO) in missions with big groups of enemies. Anyway, with NF, ANet introduced a long series of skills which seems like they've been created for us Explosive MMs. Consider these:
-Feast For The Dead
Destroy target animated undead ally. All of your other animated undead allies are healed for 10...82 Health.
Destroy target animated undead ally. All foes near that creature are Diseased for 5...13 seconds
-Feast Of Creation(ELITE)
Destroy target allied summoned creature. You gain 5...17 Energy.
For 60 seconds, whenever you create a creature, all allies near that creature gain 5...41 Health and lose 1 Condition.
Ok so FotD is not really great but can help you when running from a pack of monsters to another: simply destroy ur minion with fewest hp and you'll allow all the others a few seconds of life
Putrid Flesh and FoC are both 1-cast minion destroyer and moreover they allow you to disease enemies or gain energy! This means that if u want a minion to die quickly you won't need anymore 2 or 3 casts of Taste of Death(which cost u about 15 energy) and means also that the poison degeneration you're speading with DNova will sum to the disease one... wow -8 degen AoE + spreading from disease O_O
Spirit Gift is another INCREDIBLE enchantment! Not only will you be shielding lots of damage from your party using your minions and not only will you be dealing lots of damage but you will actually HEAL and Condition-remove every nearby W or Sin or whoever is tanking!!!(And please don't forget to double the heal and condition removal as you're creating 2 minions per cast ^^)
Now I hope that after NF comes out more and more people will try playing an Explosive MM... it's really a fun build to play and less masochist than a standard MM(Why should I sacrifice my health for some dumb minion when I can actually USE his death? ;D). Obviously it requires some practice and you'll have to learn a few tricks to manage to always keep a nice number of minions enchanted with DNova but, well, which build doesn't require practice??
Any thought, comment etc is welcome.. feel free to ask for explanations/tips too!
