    PVP Meta builds

    Hey All,

    I have been gone a while but recently started playing again. I really enjoy the PVP aspect of the game but I was wondering if anyone posts builds to defend against certain metas that they run into frequently. Lately it seems most of my battles are against the "base" three, Gunner Corrupt Rescuer/Clairvoyant/Grim Reaper Eddie with at least one of them using an Enduring talisman set. This build was my downdfall for many a fight with it's constant revive loop. I recently made a build specifically against it and my success has really improved. I am not sure if those type things are shared since maybe some of you use that build.

    Thanks

    I'm still trying to figure it out as well after leaving before pvp was officially released. It seems like a blocker with immunity / immortality / yellow buffs plus a reviver is all the rage. The red undead rescuer seems really popular since it can heal and steal buffs. I'm working on one right now, I'm just not quite sure what talismans I want to go with.

    I've also been surprised by a few Speed of Light eddies here lately, since he steals buffs. I don't know if he'll catch on or not though. I suppose I should experiment with mine since he's level 100...

    Right now VHE plus The Prisoner plus Clairvoyant plus x my bane, and I'm really not sure how to counter that. If I can kill the prisoner first turn I might win, if not I'm hosed.

    Funny you mention that because Speed pf Light Eddie is part of my build. There are a few other factors but talismans are definitely part of it.

    against the gunner rescuer and vs endure talis the angel of pain (blue bat) is golden. it will shorten the duration of endure and it will prevent the GCR from casting his shield. this is one of the best toons in game. aside this permadeath can help or just waiting it out with a reviver.

    Since Speed if Light Eddie got a huge buff he's been my main attacker. When you pair him with the right kinds of debuffers, you can easily turn the battle in your favor with him.

    Warrior Undead rescuer is well worth leveling up, but recently I've been seeing all the different blockers here and there except for the dog.
    You can see him riding on the wind
    You can see him with his wings of fire

    Like the speed of light he rules the winter sky

    When its freezing cold he will come back
    Like a fireball he's gonna be there
    No one can take away his strong will to be free

    One of the great abilities of SoL Eddie is the Restore ability. This perpetuates any buffs you have as well your ally buffs. Endure talismans and some creative allies and the Revive cycle is broken and though it is a bit slower than my Attack based build, I can usually win in 3-4 rounds. I am still building all their talismans up to 5* but the build does well against most builds, even passive disable builds.

    The team I used to always use for this is Pharaoh Eddie/Golden Pharaoh Dog/Alliance General/Warrior Pyro Soldier. The Pyro inflicts Flame which usually removes the endure and the Gunner chick's shield. You can put Void talismans on him so as long as you nail the perfect hits you will inflict flame plus put up a void shield and this team will basically destroy themselves. Ocassionally the Grim Reaper will go off and take the Pyro out but with the General stealing power you can easily revive him. Just take the Clairvoyant out first since she uses her revive more often (sometimes when she doesn't even have power or fury)

    But that assumes the buffs aren't stolen or removed. Too often I see teams which are seemingly relying on buffs rather than core abilities to their own folly.

    7Son steals/removes buffs in a couple ways.
    Astra can stun if you have blue buffs (and remove the buff)
    Angel of Strife shortens buff life
    Alliance General steals buffs
    WUR steals buffs


    There are so many ways one can lose a blue buff, using an Eddie merely because he can extend buffs is almost pointless to me.

    I don't use Restore very often. With the Corrupt General, it's pretty simple to lower MR, Smite, and Stun and then I just use leech and that usually fully heals everyone.
