PostSubject: buffing questions to max my damage   August 30th 2013, 2:07 pm

I have been playing for quite awhile now.....but just recently found these boards. I thought I was doing pretty good maximizing my damage but after reading here it seems I could be doing better. Here is a list of my main mercs. (listing the attack number to show how progressed they are...all stats would be maxed the same)

my leader cmdr brodey
swift nox v2
Marcus the merc v1
Incinerate v2 13225 atk
Mordeo 15375 atk
2 big rig v2 max
Oathbreaker v2
Na'Lac 15347 atk
Canis v2 12606 atk
Bionic Telev v2 atk 12491
Blue Bot
Switchblade v2 atk 12045
A couple giga Prims v2

I have alot more lesser mercs but these are would I consider my best.

I do pretty well in pvp without much Issue but would like to max my super boss damage. In other raid events I finish usually between 80 and 125ish currently 39ish. So any help or sugestions on other mercs I should look for and what formation and order I should try please let me know.

Thanks,
fozziev

With those mercs I'd make a AGI squad.
I'm not very good at making squads, but here is a thought;

CXB-2000U / Big Rig v2 / Swift Nox v2 / Big Rig v2 / Switchblade v2

( Could be a nice PvP squad mate ) I'm running CXB-2000U / Big Rig v2 / Big Rig v2 / Giga-Primarch v2 / Bulwark Canis v2 and this squad is prety much 1 Ammo win. If you have a freaking Swift Nox v2 and Marcus the Merc I'm sure you'll figure it out ! ^^

For Raid Event you could do this;

CXB-2000U / Big Rig v2 / Swift Nox v2 / Big Rig v2 / Switchblade v2
Marcus the Merc v1 / Mordeo Mutant v2 / Incinerate v2 / Giga Primarch v2 / Na'Lac Angered v2

Since you have a mix of mercs this is my idea, would be better ofcourse to stick to one type of mercs if you're running Raid Event; in that case I'd use 2 CXB-2000U's and for the rest all Big Rig v2's and Keymaster v2's. Wink

Hey fozzie,

There's a lot of old threads to check out in the Event section discussing a variety of lineup types. AGI, ATK, WIS based builds all seem viable now but AGI is the most accessible because of the availability of keymasters and blue bots (and to a lesser degree blue wasps).  

The main thing part you might be missing is testing a chained tigrey buff to another buffer like blue bot or giga primarch/mordeo. Your mercs seem most closest ready as an AGI squad, so you may have something like:

Lea-Blu-Tig-Blu-Agi
Agi-BR-Tig/BR/Agi-BR-Agi

Where L is your leader, BR is big rig, and A are agi-based guys like big rig, keymasters, black bot, etc. You could also try double tigrey buffing your single blue bot, or chaining tigrey to tigrey to blue.

Also, weaken applied from some mercs seems to "stick" and then all damage is multiplied after. This is working pretty well with ATK based groups because of how it affects auto-attack. It's fickle as the weaken doesn't always apply (even on proc!) and it often doesn't proc until later rounds. I currently swap in two Dual Barrages and find it works well for me as I don't have access to more expensive mercs.

yes, what mrpug said.  You need another blue bot and a tigrey to run all agi over the strong team you already have.

I would suggest in a W:

shellstinger - oathbreaker - marcus - big rig (or mordeo) - swifty
incin - giga - brody - giga - nalac

I am assuming brody a t 170 does more damage than incinerate and your giga primarchs are 13k or so wis.

you could run two shellstinger v1's like more or dual barrage if you have them.

so do buffs stack then? Like you have a giga on each side of brody if they both proc they stack? Also does blue bot stack with big rig buffs? Or is there a spot this is all listed and I should just read it?

Now that I think about it, brody will do more damage because of an effective 20x modifier and 40% proc rate, but incinerate will benefit more from a double buff because his 12x modifier all comes after the attack buff.

Also, you can swap a blue in for the big rig if you have guys dying on all out.
