I never play minion builds, i seem to have a problem keeping my souls up, do u send them away from the battle or just spam the soulward?
Sending Spirits to sit in base seems like a waste to me. Spamming wards is the way to go, though I'm not sure if overlapping coverage ups your percentage chance of spawning Spirits (anyone?)
Quoting Zechnophobe, reply 56In the Lua, there is a very obvious coded part that makes a level 3 or 4 shield immune to debuffs. And testing has shown this includes stuns, which is what an interrupt is (a 0 duration stun).
Is there a point to shield level 5, then?
It seems like Shield IV and V are icing, in most cases..If you have every other skill you could want then, sure, get some more shield...
In other news I've posted a high-level Hybrid Oak/UB vs Hybrid Oak/LE game right here. As you'll notice my build is shifting around a fair bit. I've spent a couple weeks playing an Assassin Oak and getting acquainted with Divine Justice and higher levels of Shield. I'm also liking the early-mid combo of Unbreakable Boots and 500g Helm, which provide good mana and HP for cost and can be leveraged either way.
The subtext to the latest convo is that in high-level Cata it's a Really Good Idea to have Shield III on your Oak (and to have an Oak on your team) because:
- once a portal has been locked, Shield Oak can relock that portal and teleport out all while under a magic blanket which simultaneously warms the soul while preventing any type of interrupt, stun, or damage to the recipient. He will always get his lock on, and he will never die doing it.
- the ladies like the way Shield III makes Oak glisten
