Spending resources to optimize the gear of a loot bot seems counterproductive.

I hear ya. No SB + work procrastination + weekend alone = crazy ideas.

Yeah. It's a nice utility toon to have. Definitely go with a runspeed and trav.

I prefer a long range bow, even though you don't have dex to make it effective. My thought process is that I might have to chase away / pop something creeping up on a group. The ability to pop/bleed/defcut from a distance is nice, even if I have no chance of defeating anything good (not without help from the rest of the group, at least).

I'm with Rewen when it comes to not wasting quality resources (e.g., Gladiator) on a loot bot. Maybe I'd take Runecaster. I'd also try to find some more trains for athletics.

A Belgosch Vampire version would have 20 less strength but adds Summon. It is nice to be able to run him out to your farming spot and then summon you farming toon.

That'd be true. My bad.

I still wouldn't waste a Gladiator on a loot bot, though.

Reveal is the free AoE you get. Maybe you meant camo? You can set up some sweet ambushes with just 21 trains in camo. We did one years ago with a full group of furies on the ToO gate.

I'm unsure why you chose neph. Human would get you more STR and RC. a vamp would get you summons. Camo is insta cast at 1 train and would come in useful on this bot.

Neph can get you the highest natural strength in a scout.

suppose I should have said via RC. The ability to take RC gives the human to potential to get 10 more max str endgame via the buff than the neph but then i remembered that it doesn't matter cause it's natural str that dictates the carry capacity not buffed.

The RC buff for str shouldn't matter on a loot bot as only base str affects carry capacity.

I think the next best choice for a loot bot would be a neph thief then maybe a neph wiz, lock or bard. Actually if you have access to a real scout a neph wiz or bard would be the best choices.

After running some numbers, I think a vamp can be a viable option, too.

With vamp, you're able to get within 20 STR of the Neph. Also, you get Belgosch summons, can take Fleet of Foot for extra movement speed, and have access to drains.

So it comes down to 20 STR + natural flight + ability to cure bleeds vs. summons, extra movement speed, drains, better racial gear (+1 con LA) and better ATR from bows.

Both are viable. Hell, human is viable, too. But I'd prefer neph or vamp.

Camo's a 5 second cast regardless of trains. The trains just add to the hide level and the duration.

hmm i had to check this ingame to see but yep which is odd because i remember using it as a work around the lack of insta stealth on PTC previews for my scout as it is far cheaper to invest 1 train into camo than 22 into hide..
At any rate still a convienence for this bot even at 5 seconds to cast.
