So how does MRD/WAR work in combat? I'm curious as to their combos and specifics. Pic are ways appreciated.

I don't much about WAR, but I got MRD to 23.

Pretty much what I do, against a single target (I don't remember some of the names of skills), is Tomahawk to pull, then the move that puts a DoT on the target, then Heavy Swing to lead into a combo, then Maim to up attack by 10%, then back to Heavy Swing and Skull Sunder x2. This times out perfectly to start this rotation right back up minus the initial Tomahawk. I pop the leech and defense abilities whenever things get hairy, and then usually whenever they CD. You can throw the stun move in there whenever, as it's an instant, or wait till needed to cancel a mobs charge.

With more than one target, I simplify it down a bit to conserve TP, but I'll start the pull with Tomahawk, then when they get close, hit the group with an Overpower to raise enmity. Then just Heavy Swing, Skull Sunder, Overpower until I'm down to single target, then go into the aforementioned rotation. Might need to hit a couple Overpowers in a row sometimes to get everything situated better.

With large mob groups, like the one boss fight in Copperbell (when there are like 10-15 adds on screen), I just run around the group in a circle spamming Overpower, trying to get everything herded together where a THM is just going to AoE everything's face off.

I just got the Berserk skill, and have yet to find a place for it. Only because I just haven't used it at all. I'm sure it's a fine skill as well. It raises your attacks by 50% for 15 secs I think, but the drawback is that when it wears off, you have 5 seconds where you can't use any WS's.

Also, I carry around a stock of Hi-Potions. Never know when you're are gonna need them.

As far as stats go, I have just put points into the stats evenly. 1 for each when I get 3. I like balance. Smiley: nod With armor and accessories, you're obviously gonna want heavy armor with solid stats. But that's kind of a given.

Feel free to ask any questions, although I can't promise you an answer. Smiley: grin

Edit: Sorry, I can't post any pictures.

I agree with most everything he says. Berserk seems like a good ability to use when you're getting low on TP or nearing the end of a fight so you can escape the after effect.

As of right now, I would personally put all my stat points into VIT. At low levels, I feel that's the stat that would benefit a MRD most. To be honest, once beta 4 starts, I wouldn't use any of my stat points unless a reset is already in place. That way you can let other people experiment for you and end up with the best possible combination.

Lol, I don't even know how you did that google thing. That blew my mind. Regardless of being able to just google something, I didn't want to be a **** and just say search it yourself, and instead gave (what I thought) was at least a half-assed answer. Smiley: grin

I thought this as well, because you already have base stat increases which I hope sustain needs till end game. Like you said, I'll probably just save them until I figure out what I need to put them in.

Ha, I wasn't being sassy, I just thought it was a funny post. I debated between answering and that but your post did a good job.
