    I'm trying out a necromancer and am currently going through Tortage Night. However, I'm stuck on Awakening II. I have to find Renton but I go to the X and there doesn't seem to be anything there except a few guards. Is it broken or am I missing something?

    Do the guards have names like "Renton's Shady Friend" or something? If so, kill them.

    Well, I play with the shader disabled for better performance, it's also the moonsteel stuff, so I dunno if that reduces the shininess. Anyways, yours is baremetal, mine is painted dull grey from the looks of it. I notice that the armor straps and stuff on yours are metalic looking as well, odd.

    [edit] Oh wait, I'm wearing bronze plate, I'm guessing you've got steel plate?

    ANyway. I have no idea what I'm doing, but this spec seems to have nice stuff in it.

    edit: where do I go to respec?

    edit edit: preferrably near Connall Valley.

    Seems solid. Note that Surging Health kind of sucks right now (the heal is really tiny). You'll also probably want Goad / Goad Mob and the +spell invulnerabilities if you're going to be doing lots of tanking.

    The +physical invulnerabilities feat is borderline OP at low levels. It's basically defensive stance minus the damage debuff.

    Oi, Echo.

    I would not go with Hoarfrost speccing. Instead try to get the improved fireweave feat in the carnage tree. TBH, hoarfrost just plain sucks at the moment. Fireweave is a LOT better. Along with the lingering wrath feat.

    Warlord is also AWESOME. Groups will LOVE you. So try to put enogh points to get improved fireweave, linger wrath, and warlord maxed. I'm at work atm and can't access my build, but i'll edit this reply with it later.

    Yes it means you'll be wasting 5 points into carnage DW, but it's WELL worth it. More input after I get off work.

    Unfortunately you have to get some bullshit trash feats in the Carnage tree to get Imp Fireweave. I'm holding out hope that Hoarfrost will get a buff by the time I get 50 (btw- you can get the feat at 40, but the skill doesn't show up until 50).

    Now that I actually look at it, the Carnage tree also has good stuff. Might try specing fully into it what with the Warlord stuff and other goodies.

    I tried it, I seem to do more damage and live longer in Brute. Offhand weapons just don't fire very often.

    Dual wielding in general seems sort of broken.

    It is actually a quest to go kill someone and skin them. I just thought the near-kiss positioning that accidentally happened was kinda funny so I hit screenshot, then I read the text and was LMAO.

    Oi Echo,

    http://feats.goonheim.com/conqueror#t0a5c2d3f5g1k1t1a5b2c3d5f5g1i3j1l1m1n1r3u5v5x5z5B1t2a5c5

    This is my pvp/pve tanking build currently at 80.

    Guard of Dancing Steel is godly in PVE situations and if you can execute it in pvp, you can kill every melee almost.

    Warlord is seriously really really good. Look into it. I never run out of stamina with that and Inspire the Ranks on.

    In reality you're only wasting 5 points(annihilate is good for finishers, the other feat is good for damage in general). I have imp frenzy for burst damage. Blessed Conquest is my OH SHI~ 6 second invul button. In that time if i get off a battle rez proc, i'll have helped my group a ton.

    Also can be used with GoDS for some major invul damage.

    But this is just my build. Be creative i'm sure you'll come up with a better one ^.^

    Is that the buff that eventually gives +20% damage? I was grouped with someone with that, but I thought he was a ranger.

    Yeah, that's what confuses me. I'm a conqueror - I get it when grouped with my BS buddy. I have feats that mention it, so I guess it's my conqueror that gives it when grouped and near party members.

    You'd expect it to be listed in abilities somewhere.

    It's a proc. Zilo is right about it firing when your group mates get hit. SUPPOSEDLY it also fires when they attack/do combos, but at a lower rate.

    You can take the feat Angel of Fury for your own combos to proc it(BUT IT IS NOT GOOD AT ALL... procs like 1/20 hits).

    It doesn't proc if YOU get hit, though.

    Also to get the healing and rezzing to proc(rez is at x20 stacks of FI), you have to be hitting something.

    Well, call me naive then. I hang out here because I find most of the forumers are at least somewhat intelligent and mature, if not likeminded within my own principles. Guess I forgot what the "outside" was like. Someone please remind me never to stray again.

    When buddies get hit, I get a stack of FI. Does the rest of the group also get it?

    Hey guys,

    There is no update today. We will announce the downtimes on the launcher and forums if they should happen. We were looking to get something out today but the teams wanted to get more fixes in the update before releasing a new one today. We will keep you updated on the next update that is aiming for around Monday like before.

    Thanks,
