Statue Deck Examples

Post by lessigfan on November 5th 2010, 2:28 pm

I don't know if this belongs under guides or dungeons or guides. A few of you asked me about running statue parties, and how the decks should be designed. So I thought I'd share my statue decks. They're not perfect, but they did the job reliably. Sometimes it'd take 2 shots on Lies, but mostly I got everything on the first shot.

Tabernacle did a great job explaining the strategy to the statues, and I just followed his advice.

Illusions - order matters. Make sure your summon/aoe guy is before your melee guy in the group, so the melee guy's big hit isn't wasted on an image.

Summon/AoE
Spoiler:
This guy wipes out the blurred images. Anything that does AoE damage, but isn't a tech rune (e.g. wizard charms) is great. Any summons that do damage are fine. I used summon, fire, shadow, earth, and debuff runes.

AoE Damage is helpful
Deflagration x5 - this AoE damage is worth using
Darkness Falls x5 - this inq charm is just AoE bane
Grallan's Rancor x1 - AoE bane, I wish I had more

summon damage - you need summons, you can't do this with banes
Corrupted Minion x4
Phoenix Offspring x5
Crimson Devil x5
Lesser Summoning x5
Greater Flame Elemental x5
Mana Leech x5
Hound x5
Skeleton x5
Yellow Whelp x5

Other Stuff
Earth Link x1 - summon extender & heal - I'd have used more if I had them
Devastate x5 - he has an aura which increases his melee so I tried to cut it off. Probably not necessary, and you could have your tank use them, but devastate worked fine, though staff of decay would have been better.

Melee CPB
Spoiler:
This deck is a no-brainer. I used spear, buff, axe, & mace runes, which turned out fine, though any cpb melee would work fine with 5x blood pact and 5x release karma.

I used the same melee deck for all 3 statues. If you're going to do the same, make sure the deck has more charms than your will tank at the lies statue, but fewer charms than your spirit damage guy at the lies statue - so take it easy on EAs and self-spirit charms.

Damage - double hits are obviously good
Slash and Thrust x5
Echoing Lance x5
Niflungar Spear x5
Glorious Hammer x2
Glorious Lance x5
Battle-Forged Lance x5
Icecaller x4
Grand Sting x5
Cursed Femur x5 - if you're using this deck on all 3 statues, this helps some against Lies, I'd have added Evil Crushers if I could
Eroded Wave Splitter x0 - I tossed these, the will power is nice in the statue of lies, but regular damage charms did as well.

Ongoing Melee Buff
Hyphused Piercer x5
Blood Pact x5
Release Karma x5

Tank
Spoiler:
Tanking this is easy. I've got some paladin charms in there, but you'll be fine with whatever you've got. Just keep the runes to armor/ward. This worked for me in both Illusions & Debuff:

Protect
Nerman's Defender x5
Shield of the Whale x5
Antique Breastplate x5

Armor/Ward
Monk Protection x5 - AoE Armor, probably unnecessary
Jade Shield x5
Jade Ring x5
Providential Bulwark x5
Glorious Protector x4
Pyric Charge x5
Sacred Defense x5
Holy Shield x5
Silent Prayer x4

Discord - order doesn't seem to matter

Debuff
Spoiler:
As many ongoing debuffs as you can manage. If you've got a DK, despair is a good one. Stick with debuff runes. I didn't use any bane extenders, but if you've got them, they may be worthwhile.

Blightwood Blade x5 - this really helps with melee damage, I've gotten 800+ point hits with it. Definitely worth using either with your melee guy (if he's already using swords) or otherwise your debuff guy.
Blighted Woodling x5 - this is a primo debuff charm, just make sure no one else is using summon
Magebane Poison x5
Dusk Cape x5
Decay x5
Feet Bind x5
Power Leak x5
Lightning Spike x5 - filler
Silencing Blow x5 - filler
Slowing Blast x5 - filler
Persistent Disease x5 - just a little damage, probably not necessary, but helpful
Death Sentence x5 - damage, again may not be necessary, but it helps
Melee CPB - same as illusions, but if you're using swords, make sure you're using blightwood blade rather than your debuff guy.

Tank - same as illusions


Lies - order only matters if you're trying to run woeful's whips (which is inadvisable)

Melee CPB - same as illusions again, all this guy needs to do is keep the enemy armor down, so the projection doesn't kill off your will tank. Make sure this deck has fewer charms than the spirit deck, but more than the will tank, and beware of too many self-spirit and EA charms.

Spirit -
Spoiler:
As much spirit & will destruction as you can gather. Spirit, shadow, and debuff runes only. Nightmares & voodoo heads are key. Avoid soul cry and too many EAs, you want the spirit damage guy to have the most spirit. Once your will tank is exhausted, you want your CPB melee guy to go next.

Dark Heirlooms will look attractive, but your melee guy is probably running buff runes, so you probably need to skip them. If your melee guy can wipe out the armor effectively without buff runes, then dark heirlooms will really help. Woeful's Whips are really hard to use too, your target's armor will be above zero for most of the match, but if you need to use them, make sure your spirit guy is AFTER your melee CBP guy in the group.

Withering Touch x5 - 5 will destruction
Robes of Majesty x5 - 3 will destruction & 5 spirit debuff
Fateful End x5 - 7 will destruction
Terrible Idea x5 - EA 2 will destruction
Searing Mind x5 - spirit banes are nice, but if you're not an Inq, not necessary
Colithon Skull x5 - 5 will destruction
Voodoo Head x5 - 7 will destruction
Power Corruption x5 - only 4 will destruction, but your tank should be able to handle the extra damage
Death Spin x5 - 3 will destruction and giving your enemy an extra action helps if you're using nightmare/colithon banes
Nightmare x5 - 12 will destruction
Challenger's Pressure x2 - 3 will destruction, just filler
Looming Terror x4 - 3 will destruction filler

Crown of Prestige x5 - this is a debuff rune, not willpower, I'm not sure it is all that helpful, but I used it
Will Tank -
Spoiler:
55 Charms - must have fewer charms than the CPB and spirit allies, otherwise the massive spirit hits will kill them. Be careful of EAs and blood pacts in your CPB melee decks. Keep the runes to will, armor, and ward. A hierarch could probably do this really well with will auras, and maybe a berserker with all its cumul will, but I did it fine without any class charms as a paladin.

You need massive willpower, especially cumul. I was even using Cerulean Rod for a while.
Jade Earrings x5 - the most important charm in here
Luminous Idea x5 - ok for cumul will, also ensures you have fewer charms than your CPB ally
Glorious Keepsake x5
Azure Ring of Hope x5
Shield of the Brave x5
Mind Cheer x5
Star Necklace x2 - I didn't have anything better here
Subjugate x5 - both destroys will & adds cumul will, a winner

You need some protect both for the jade earrings, but also for armor-projection magic damage and melee damage
Six-Points Crystal Ward x3 - the stun is dangerous, because if played early, your ally might dip lower in spiirt
Nerman's Defender x5
Magma Shield x5
Shield of the Whale x5

A couple of notes

On Illusion:
AoE is not as effective as an 8-turn duration summon. The illusions only have 1hp each, so it doesn't matter how much damage your summons deal, you want to make them last so they can deal it often. Dig out Summon Spiderling and Imp again, along with Phoenix Offspring and Lesser Summoning they're your best charms here. After those, just add summons in order of duration. Empathy is good if your CPB'er can do without Buff, and they really should be able to, 5000hp is a cakewalk.

On Discord:
If you debuff, you really want to go for as much -ongoing as you can rather than -next or DOT. Permafrost, Black Cinder, Icy Slasher, Balefire, Conductive Ice, Intimidate, Cold Death, Frozen Skin, etc. would all be preferable to the damage banes. There's a ton of mid-level charms with -ongoing around, they really come in handy here.

If the CPB'er is doing it right there shouldn't even be any need for additional damage from banes. A full set of Hyphused and some double hits is enough. In any case it is better for them to use the Blightwood Blades, because they also gets the cpb bonus to the damage.
