    Ultimate Captain Raiding Build

    So yeah, after some thinking, finally came up with the ultimate captain raiding build.

    For starters, we're going to need the best earrings in the game for captains:
    Earring of the Exemplary Captain x2
    Since you've already got the most important pieces, why waste your time on stuff that doesn't matter?

    Now for the emblem:
    Strength of Will
    RC Cooldown
    Might Legacy
    Will Legacy
    Fate Legacy
    Vitality Legacy

    And the weapon:
    To Arms
    Telling Mark
    Motivating Speech
    Tactic: Relentless Assault
    Tactic: On Guard
    Make Haste

    Relic grinding is for noobs..... don't use them.

    Continuing on, we need to maximize our buffing potential, and also ensure we are as power efficient as possible using the following traits:
    Captain's Victory
    Tactical Prowess
    Captain's Hope
    Strong Voice
    Loyalty
    Precise Ally
    Captain's Valour
    IDoME
    Oathbreaker's Shame
    Fellowship Brother

    For racials, only take Strength of Morale and Duty-bound. The rest are usless, don't bother slotting them.

    For virtues, only a noob uses them, unslot all of them like a pro.

    Also, we absolutely want to run with a herald out, since two are always better than one.

    So now, we might as well finish off with style points, and ditch that hot, stinky heavy armor, and wear something that's much more stylish:
    Tactical Eastemnet Assault Circlet
    Tactical Eastemnet Assault Gloves
    Tactical Eastemnet Assault Leggings
    Tactical Eastemnet Assault Pauldrons
    Tactical Eastemnet Assault Robe
    Tactical Eastemnet Assault Shoes
    Nobody in their right mind is going to mess with somebody in a kilt. That's just asking for trouble.

    And finally, we need a cape that just says it all:
    Supple Gifted Cloak of the Wold

    Some poor newbie is going to come along and take you seriously.

    Captain gold gear sucks.

    You know, I have seen this too many times on a main weapon. And from people who otherwise seem like serious players:

    Motivating Speech
    Tactic: Relentless Assault
    Tactic: On Guard
    Make Haste

    Those clearly go on a buff stick not a main weapon. I know this is supposed to be some sort of BS/troll post but seriously people do this. Why? Make haste maybe I could see if you were too lazy to swap/set up a macro but the rest. *headdesk*

    In other news today, Wardens need to max agility as main stat in update 10? I feel bad for them.

    I am making a (rather satirical) point about how two golden items, a legacy, and a trait will allow you to get away with almost anything, and still be "raid worthy" - because dumb luck can cause a captain to be more desirable than someone who has put a ton of effort into getting the best gear, and having the best LIs.

    Can you point me in the direction of a good explanation about how to set up a macro to switch to another weapon, cast Strength of Will (or Make Haste, or Escape From Darkness, etc). I have not yet been able to find anything in the way of real info there.

    Thanks!

    What's wrong with those relics?

    I tell them I'm the only one / There was a war, but I must have won[/i][/size]

    Nothing, I blended in enough stuff that's fairly sound to give the post some initial credibility before going off the deep end.

    Not sure if trying to be funny, sarcastic or just bored...

    Yeah, sorry, it doesn't really work as a serious post or a joke post. I was mostly just baffled.
