    Default Jacque-er-naut Solos EEDA

    Once upon a time in a server far far awar, lived a French half-elf archer who lived in a small hole.

    Our little friend would dream all day of a life full of adventures. His dream was to become.. a Juggernaut, those Godlike Beings created for war.

    Among the 12 Jugs created by the Gods, only eleven remained.

    Twelve Epic Swords of Shadows for the Gods of War
    Twelve Black Dragon Armors for the Dragon Slayers
    Twelve Black Helms for the Undying Sentinels
    One Lord to bring order, One Lord to protect them
    One Lord to bring them all and in the light bind them
    In the server of Thelanis where Evil lies

    The weapons and armor of the twelfth who had perished a long time ago remained lost, and the legend said that one day, a man of great courage and virtue would find them. Only then would the prophecy be fulfilled and the Juggernaut army reassembled.


    It truly is a great mystery that one day our little archer looted an Epic Sword of Shadows while gathering the dusty red scales of a slain ancient dragon that were supposed to possess healing properties.
    All the juggernauts were awakened by the power released when the archer wielded for the first time the twelfth magic sword. But the greatest of them all, the Lord Commander of the Juggernauts, Haek, felt it even more.
    It was not long before he found the archer. His first reaction was complete disbelief. The twelfth great sword of power in the hands of one of the weaker races? And an arcane archer on top of it?

    But the archer was strong willed and the Lord of the Juggernauts could but notice his eyes were as a flame of fire, a flame of courage and justice.

    The council of the Juggernauts was called by Haek in Thelanis in order to decide what should be done with the French Archer.
    It was decided that he would be given a chance, although the journey would be full of dangers.

    The archer met each task with as much dedication as any of the Juggernauts would. Soon he had slain the Black Dragon in the Gianthold Tor and acquired the mythic Black Dragonscale Docent.
    For such a display of courage, he was granted by the Stormreaver a Black Helm, symbol of the now nearly instinct Warforged race.

    The second task set by the Juggernauts was to be a proof of the dedication to the Order of the Juggernauts. As only a Warforged could be accepted as a Juggernaut, the archer had to go through a true reincarnation. 7.5 million experience he would grind to achieve his goal. To the greatest surprise of the Juggernauts, a few days was all it took, as our little friend was versed in the ways of leveling, having spent his entire youth studying the paths of reincarnation.

    Only one element was now missing. He had shown his courage and dedication, but he had yet to bring proof of his skills through combat prowesses.
    He had to solo the most difficult quest in the realm on the highest difficulty setting.

    The archer became very sad because it was something he had already tried without success. The first time he had failed due to Devils running fast and him being crippled. The second time he was better prepared and he brought with him a +10 tendon slice ring as well as the Otto's Whistler and Pin twists. He was smashed by the waves of Orthons.
    The third time.. well the third time he had a lot of preparation. He had reincarnated, he had acquired the most powerful weapon and armor.

    He was ready.

    This is where my story ends, and where the archer enters the Ship of the wind and waits on the decision of the Juggernauts.
    But because of his past live as a half-elf and his French origin, Sith the archer will never be a Juggernaut.
    Will the council of the Juggernaut accept a "Jaque-er-naut" as the Twelfth member of their Army?

    I kinda got disappointed with the build at first when I hit 20 because the saves/survivability in EE content were pretty low. The guildies convinced me to try it at level 25, which I did, and it's a lot better now. Looking at low 50's on saves, 52 PRR and the right gear.
    I decided to try out EEDA as I had promised I would to Haek. I got it on the first try - and honestly I didn't really expect I would succeed, as I tried it last life on my monkcher, and 2 times I couldn't get past the orthon's waves.
    Big mistakes I did:
    • No nightshield clickie/scrolls - the casters spam magic missiles that do around 100+ damage each time.
    • No DR Breaker =D Didn't really expect to make it on the first try so didn't bother getting the "good weapon" spell. Could have used the esos but then I'd lose 15 PRR and as Haek pointed out when he soloed EEDA, you really really want to have that PRR bonus.


    No voice commentaries this time, it was 2 am my time and family was asleep.
    Anyway, here's the video, screenshots to follow.

    Awesome Bill Way to go. Glad you enjoy le jaque-ewww-not more now (I still won't roll one).

    (Btw why use nightshield clickies now anyways? Shield wands are 5 mins super cheap from the vendor and at least give you immunity to glancing blows over the nightshield - the stacking +3 reflex isn't there anymore...)

    I never stay long on a build, the longest was Nick's grandmaster of death: 1 month. Once I've acquired all the gear and learned how to play the build to perfection, I get bored and feel like trying something new.

    Couple days since I'm capped, got the gear now, and already having ideas for a next TR ^^
    Could be :
    -Shiradi Sorc w/ monk splash
    -A fvs w/ manyshot and focus on light damage
    -Back to my AA build w/ OC, but this time w/ heavy focus on saves
    -Paladin build w/ TWF + manyshot
    -Something else that's new?

    People keep telling to roll more alts (I actually have a couple of them.. that I haven't played for a year) but I just can't bring myself to do it. The idea of playing a non completionist no PLs no gear toon scares me!


    @Eth
    I had no idea about the shield wands giving immunity to glancing blows, good thinking. Now that you mention wands, I didn't even use my prot from evil wand =D Not that I've ever seen casters in eDA cast Greater command..

    Did I say glancing blows? Meant grazing hits (so that will rarely help with mobs extremely high to-hit but it is still a plus).

    Sith, you must have serious serious Inventory/bank issues like I do on Wulverine.
    Having to delete raid gear and btc EE items really sucks when you want to TR
    Give us more bankspace!

    Oh, and gz gz and all that.

    Same build as juggernaut but Half Elf, Arcane Archer swapping the body feat for construct essence ;-)
    Ghallanda - now with fewer alts and more ghostbane

    i did a super weird 12Wiz/6Arty/2ranger half elf, BE, AA, Shiradi ARCHMAGE. Many Shot, Fusillade MM SLA / FM SLA / MM / FM it was SO fun and actually really beastly with Nerve Venom, Pin, and Whistler for CC, and SLA's for nuking with full metas (And more Nerve Venom CC). Slot force and take the enhancements and go crazy. Would be even better now with GH gear like Blue Scale Major Arcane lore.

    I actually liked it so much I rolled up a fresh 32 PT WF version to level up to 20 just so I always have one in the stable when I TR'ed.
