Full V4b - Sun 10:00 - NM - Double Down - Sticks and Rocks 6 months 1 week ago #25

Do we plan to equip a full set of CoAS? I’ve got plenty to lend if people want to use them. I’m mildly addicted to the HP and initiative bonus, if I’m being honest.

Also, I played around with my build a bit following V4A. I’m playing V4B a couple times on Fri/Sat, so by Sunday, I should have some idea if further tweaks are needed. I am going to miss the extra damage/rage/fury from Bog’s.

I was assuming CoAS. I'm currently running Quick Strike.

I'm sure I'll make changes before Sunday morning, also might change whether have paladin or not.

Dropping Bog's because of onehandedness? We could switch classes as the weapon I'm planning on using is 2h. Actually, the only time I recall using this weapon was playing barbarian. Or, more generally, I could run barbarian and you could choose whichever class you prefer.

Yes, I was planning to drop Bog’s because the +2 War Shillelagh is the best “stick” I have, and it is one-handed. I’m open to hearing about any two-handed sticks anyone wants to lend. Adding back Bog’s would mean a lot more damage, plus more fury and rage. Possibly a lower to-hit, though, as I’m currently planning to use the Stu-pendous Pendant for the neck slot.

Belinda, there are options. With a Whetstone, you won't even have to sacrifice your +1 to hit. Given some of these are fairly old; that quarter staff is 2011 and the iron club is 2017 though (assuming an iron stick counts). Trent even has them in stock if you don't have them already.

Matthew covered what I was going to say. My rares don't include 2008, 2009, and iron is debatably stick-y.

Thanks for the suggestions. My tokens mostly go back to 2013/2014, and I don’t have a Whetstone. (I owned a +2 UR weapon by the time they came out, and didn’t see the point of making one. Didn’t happen to draw one, either.) It seems a little silly to spend ~$60 at Trent’s for one themed run, even if he could get the tokens to me in a week. (With USPS the way it is, things might be fine, or not.) Or to spend $5 on a Rare token and $5 on shipping if someone wanted to lend me a Whetstone.

The +2 War Shillelagh is a fine weapon. My melee stats are 20/29/32 using it with the Shirt of Shielding (24/33/32 with Bardsong). If I can switch back to a Shirt of the Oaf, even better, but I’ll need to see if anything has changed for V4B to make that an option. That build still hits pretty hard.

I have a spare Whetstone. I made two. I only recently (2021 tokens) have an UR weapon.

I think I might still have a quarter staff - I’ll double check at home tonight.

And I figure I’ll do Paladin - that gives us a little extra heals as well as defense. And I get to use my Rod of Niltongue - I was so excited to make that as one of my first relics - then never got to use it as the following year the Baton of Focus replaced it for my regular roles.

No luck - I must have mulched it when I decided to start cutting down on my collection of “stuff that maybe I’ll use someday” last year. Guess I figured I would just use a Staff of Focus if I went as Wizard.

VTD has spawned so many fun “let’s try this” scenarios - I might start regretting some of those decisions.
