I'm a big fan of running extremely dumb gimmicky builds in RA, so chances are good if you come across a build that seems to defy all logic and common sense, I'm the guy who's playing it.
Here are the builds I've put up so far:
R/D Escaping Scythe
Horrible Dumb Crap Builds
These are the builds even I'm not stupid enough to try and put through the vetting procedure.
The "Wait, he's using a SWORD!?" Build <pvxbig> [build prof=Elementalist/Warrior FireMagic=10+1+2 Tactics=10 Swordsmanship=10 EnergyStorage=5+1][Soldier's Strike][Sun and Moon Slash][Flame Djinn's Haste][Soldier's Stance][Healing Signet][Conjure Flame]["Watch Yourself!"][Optional][/build] </pvxbig>
- Optional should be either Resurrection Signet for RA, or Mark of Rodgort for AB. This build has a stupid amount of armor, especially if you combine it with conditional damage Tactics shields, and you actually hit pretty hard. I normally get around 80 damage a hit with Soldier's Strike alone, and the anti-blocking means that you can be very aggravating to Monks. Works well in AB, but what doesn't?
The "Make Everyone Leave Your Party Quickly" Build <pvxbig> [build prof=Monk/Warrior SmitingPrayers=10+1+2 ProtectionPrayers=8+1 AxeMastery=12][Eviscerate][Executioner's Strike][Castigation Signet][Flail][Shielding Hands][Judge's Insight][Strength of Honor][Rebirth][/build] </pvxbig>
- Some guy asked for a Mo/W that damaged with an axe, so here we go. Get a shield and an axe and go nuts, keeping Judge's Insight up as much as possible and using Castigation Signet to manage your energy. Shielding Hands will take care of any heavy fire you might come under, although you should still play the build cautiously. Pretend you're an Assassin.
