TYVM but i try to keep that low key lest I actually make a name for myself. TBH once they actually get the game up and running (someday , , , , i hope :roll: ) I will most likely quit posting on the forums all together.
Don't worry, you'll quickly make a name for yourself if you make a defensive dexbased axechucking priest.
LoL indeed I would.

I'll be sure to double box one of your famous Necromancy based "Thorskyl's Runerunning Hutress' " builds. Perhaps then I'll get famous twice as fast :lol:

They're doing it all wrong. Dual-Hammer Irekei Priests were where it was at. They could hold poop loads of buckets to double as heal-bots when you weren't busy praying for a proc in the vain hope of killing someone.

Defensive dex based shield toting axe throwing dwarf proccer priest vs huntress wearing necro gear vs.... 2000 defense offensive stance druid. Let's get it on!

Bah, I can't blame them. My server up character was a bladeweaver priest (no procs). It was pretty fucking awesome until people learned how to play and started finding decent gear. Sitting at even 1400 defense, a lot of melee characters could not hit you at server up unless they used the gladiator atr buff.

These guys have played the game for years and fantasized about it for a few more, there's no excuse for not knowing t-axes are STR based or "how to get t-dags on a priest".

This thread is evidence of:

1. Copious amounts of Shadowbane knowledge seeping out of old players' heads.
2. Everyone getting so bored they are resorting to trying to play the unplayable.
3. Noobs still thinking they can turn a turd into a diamond bracelet.

This forum should be full to the brim of dwarf bot templates :)

I figured telling people the secret to playing a badass huntress is wearing necromancy jewelry would be enough of a giveaway for people to realize it's not 100% serious. I must overestimate people's analytical skills I guess.

So back on topic: irekei SD proccer is about as good as it gets melee wise for priests, right? add in a fury throwing around -100% to either ltng or cold and see if you can double proc for 4k... before you get clubbed over the head by like everybody. 3 or 4 such priests ensure that whichever of you is running for your life gets mucho dispels and heals, and add a bowscout so you can hit rogues. voila, a whole group of glassy slow asses!

way back I had a BW melee priest with the aoe 15 second stun. Back when most people did not understand the mechanics of the game you could be viable, not so much anymore.

Legendary of Slaughter weapons

Legendary of Proc Weapons also stun ATR in def stance

GM single target stun (15s)
1 pt AoE stun (8s)

GM dispell debuff
GM attack speed debuff
2020 def
2099 hp (should hit about 2500 by the time I hit r7)
2 % heals
2 % stam heals
Summon

And a few other goodies that I won't mention


Viable enough?

Depends on where your bar for viable is. You know priest def stance has -powerdmg on it? You have no passive D and trash weapon powers.

About as candy as anything anyone could ever dream up. Looks like something someone from test would build.

I'm trying to cut back on being a dick, so I'll just say that is not a viable build. Minimal damage, no survivability and your stun ATR is silly. You might as well pull points out of the focus line and drop the ATR down to 500-600, cuz your hovering far above the ATR needed to stun meat/casters, but far below what's need to hit def toons. Stun ATR is only important on pure stun priests. But frankly, that wont improve anything. More points to play with isn't going to make a difference.

Make a Dwarf spear procc Priest, then we'll talk. It'll still be trash, but at least you might get a kill or two if you're lucky.

Not from test.

Thats minimal trains in theurgy, i couldn't take points out.
I think that 2k def and 200 damage per hand isn't terrible for a priest.

Yes I know that def stance has -pwr damage on it. I don't use anything but the % heal and it doesn't affect that.

I wouldn't call this priest garbage.

If I manage to land a stun, which I never had a problem with on the preview (even after the gear vendors) I can hit O stance for some decent procs.


It's not a come all be all character, but I'd still call this pretty viable as far as a battle priest go.

BTW I love how everyone is all ways talking about diversity but when someone puts up something new all anyone can say is roll what everyone else rolls...

Remember that 200 max per hand listed doesn't have anything like a decent crush expose and lack of alac on stance to is up to 25% dmg loss. After resists are factored in you are going to have the dps of a wet lettuce. You probably would catch a poor mage or two off guard if you went procs, but that says more about how shafted they got in con-hp ratios than anything positive about the build. Glad I've been playing a MA cos getting stunned and cut down by procs this thing dished out would leave me genuinely depressed.

Btw, the talk of diversity is about getting classes that deserve to be represented buffs so they reasonably can and therefore make the game more interesting without people feeling like they are intentionally handicapping themselves, not championing the rights of candy toons, be that melee priests or otherwise.
