Monster Placement, and Herding 101

Post by mekagylvx » 02 Nov 2018, 17:43

I have created two videos on why I separate Skeletons from Red Bones and Wights, and how I accomplish that separation through isolation and consolidation. In the herding video, I don't talk right away, so be patient...I get started in a couple minutes 8^)

Monster Herding 101 Demonstration:

Don't expect anything professional...I just used OBS on Ubuntu Linux with a webcam microphone for commenting. Hope someone gets some use out of it.

I used to use the same method in the Graveyard, it's especially useful for ranged classes and archers in particular given the different speeds at which these skeletons all walk. Warriors with high enough stats can pretty much just take anything coming at them as long as it's not too many at once, but as an archer it's much nicer to separates skellys and ladies. Divide and conquer!

High vit, max armour, speed skill and a nice long betsanc can get most anything done. Candor is the exception. XD
