No Quicksand as a temporary fix passing for AoE Taunt?
Well.. this is mainly geared towards solo players... Lets face it, in crews almost anything goes as far as rings are concerned... as long as you have some buffs that is.

Yep, I need a life D:

@Myrielle: I could, if you think it's worthwhile. It's pretty much Cat vs Duct Tape though.

Could be. It'll be a matter of a generalist as a soloist and as crew. I will not want a CC that will cause too much aggro when fighting alone for instance.


Haha, if you're fighting alone, it won't matter, cause you'll have all the aggro anyway. rofl


EDIT: Also Val, I feel the title is misleading. Ringset made me think of... well, ringsets. And this thread is about builds, yes?

Not if you do luring and be all sneaky-like. xd

Eh... if you lure.... you will still have aggro of whatever you lure regardless of whether or not you use quicksand?

I guess I can change it.

I always think of my build as a set of rings >.<;;

Aggro one at a time whenever possible.This is why I prefer Hunter's Bow. Quicksand gets too many hot and bothered. Not a thing I'd want if I were soloing. Mobbing, on the other hand...Bring it!

Thanks for making this, it's clearly written & advocates a good build (imo). I've been using a pretty similar one when soloing but I've never really utilized a CC ring. I'm going to try one now. 3nodding

I'm still not 100% sold on the usefulness of CC myself, but I do know it's nice to reduce battles to 1 v 1.

You should switch out rings more often D:

In fact, I want everyone to do so!

I tend to stick with one build more often than not.

And I've been wondering if the game should encourage this or take advantage of it's super flexible skill system >.>
Very nice guide! Concise and clear - I really hope those new to zOMG will read this! I use a build pretty much exactly what you recommend, and it works wonderfully. I do have one question though: What do you recommend for constant armor? I'm currently using Pot Lid, but would Rock be better? Or something else, perhaps? I also carry Improb Sphere, if that affects anything. Is there any mathematical data on damage prevented by the various rings that you could share? How about how long each buff lasts for? Because of course, having to re-apply a buff less often means I can R4 my healing and attack rings more often. ;3nod:

I've looked through the other guides, but I don't remember seeing info on mathematical data and buff time duration. If it is posted elsewhere though and I missed it, I apologize! Once again, this is a terrific guide. Thanks so much for making it!
