Does Battlesongs in temp make much difference ?

In the context of a template, nothing makes a big difference but the sum of a full cap template will make you a #godofthearena and a #majesticskaldlord. Battle songs are the essence of our skaldiness and it cannot be ignored, but templates come down to money and if you are looking to save money then I would rather leave out power than +bs.

#1. "Ring of Prey Skewering (drops from somewhere, found in housing 1p)"

--Can craft same thing with 10/10 charges for less than 40gold. Alchemy: Stable Honing Arcanium Tincture. Tailoring: any MP armor piece (the lower lvl the better). Use it from inventory.



#2. If using crafted small shield consider using a DD charge on it for a 3rd "shout" dd interrupt. (More useful as 8v8/zerg) Ablative/heal may be more beneficial for solo/smallie.
Stable Withering Arcanium Tincture onto crafted gear (small shield good candidate or boots/gloves) yields a str/con debuff with value 56 (body), lasts 1min. IMPORTANT: RANGE= 300, item must be equipped!!

Good try Catkain. You need more experience of soloing, a more Mdps aproche maybe . Your minstrel gameplay work on 10% of fight? .. i kill u sometime with r3/ r5 toons... with your rank you can do really really better !

Luckily this is not a Catkain-gameplay review thread as I am sure that would not bring out the most constructive of feedbacks. Only 6 other people on this server have died more than me so I assure you that your experience was in no way special for either of us.

You refer to my minstrel-game as a weakness and I agree: minstrels are never easy wins if the minstrel is good. If you killed me on your rr2 minstrel then there is a good chance you are good!

I have died to many low rr toons, but in that case my biggest lesson is this: Don’t save ra’s for “next fight”, focus on the target in front of you as the RNG gods can always surprise you and put you face down/ass up.

Thanks for your feedback though bro, please do not hesitate to provide more specific feedback/input here, in game or on discord. I am in no way perfect or the best at this stuff, I am just the first guy who thought of writing some of it down <3

thanks for this post with so much passion. Helps me a lot and i found out that the Ring of prey skewering is a drop of a NPC in Malmohus called Arnulv (15900, 32400 + 57900, 57300) is. Maybe it drops. But dont know the Droprate. Thanks again for your post <3

Does this crafted DA stack with skalds‘ one?
