I would love to get invited to something other than FP, or the few occasions when there are no troll warriors on.

Give duergars a chance :)

i assume your a duergar warrior, and while there are fine points to them as a race for warriors, not being able to rescue or bash if you were to lose "fog" or it became daylight is just unacceptable... The same goes for troll shaman... even though the frequency of incendiary cloud is drastically reduced, your job is heal people after areas and you can't do it if your dead.

Yup, I understand that... I guess it's just sad that there's only a couple of races you can play if you want to be a warrior.

I don't really feel like rerolling after getting to level 47. Guess there's no choice.

what you need are (drum roll) some cheap sun glasses!

if it's a "dark zone" use him, in the mean time make a troll, you know you'll get plenty of help exping ;)

Duergar warriors are fine. Look at some of the goodrace dwarven warriors of note! Most zones are in the dark, if they arn't you bring a psi. I think the problem isn't troll warriors for you, it's there is a lot of warriors evil side period if you arn't getting enough zone action. Or not enough zonage of course!

I think Sarell hit the nail on the head. Evils are tank heavy, consequently if you have a mage you're far more likely to be asked to zone as that. As well, warriors being one of the easier classes to xp means you have to be more competetive in terms of skills and levels and your duergar is not lv 50.

Yes, I remember Gromi... he's the reason I made a duergar warrior
in the first place. He could keep up with all the great trolls of old.

As for not being 50th, lvl45+ xp groups are hard to come by, and I need them because of dead cow regen. Hopefully soon though, FP is giving me decent xp ;)

See you all in a couple of weeks (it's crunch time at school)

And thanks for the input!

You've obviously never played an ogre :)

Duergar regen just like barbs and dwarves.. as opposed to lumps of clay.. actually lumps of clay that love to take critical hits.. aka Ogres.

gromi was a phenomenal player... are you?

regardless, they have a serious flaw in that they can not see in the day. You could say the same about trolls and fire, but its not quite the same.
It may be good to have one good duergar warrior in the group, but it can not be the mainstream choice for tank because the ultra flaw and the number of daylight zones.

Yuan-ti is actually my pick for the best evil race tank. Elf like agility human hps con notch at 101. The 4 slots of lost equipment translates into around 80 hps which is mostly recouped on the tail. The lost AC is recovered through the innate scaleskin. The biggest problem is finding prots and saves in fewer slots.

I thought Yuan's had half-elf con. Both my half-elf and yuan notch at 106. Yuan warrior starts with 36 hps with perfect con, just like human. I think a yuan/half-elf's constitution of 100 is a human's 95 con.
