Tactics

Playing this team

Game Plan Ideal for Warrior's Isle. Wipe the opposing team in an 8v8, DP them out quickly enough that they can't engage in an 8v8 anymore or perform a successful split.
8v8

  • Place the spirits within spirit range of the fighting area.
  • Ideally allow the opponent to lure in your footmen.
  • Start spreading pressure while shutting down their defense.
  • Finish targets with Merciless Spear and damage from the elementalist and Shatter Enchantment.

Flag

  • Run a single flag on your elementalist.

Split

  • Defend with the elementalist.
  • If they don't have a character other than their runner to defend against your elementalist, split and drain one monk from main team.

Lategame

  • Use Migraine to defend your base against casters.
  • Add additional pressure with the Lacerate ranger.
  • Send the monks where needed.

Playing against this team

8v8 Situations

  • If you can't suppress the spirits, fall back.
  • Take out Migraine and Signet of Humility.
  • Pets can have death penalty. Try to inflict it on their pet to turn it into a burden for their team, preferably with Wastrel's Demise and Wastrel's Worry.

Flag

  • If you can survive the 8v8, run flags to drain their elementalist from main team or to boost.

Split

  • Split offensively, they can't do much against it.

Lategame

  • Avoid using casters where they send their migraine mesmers.
