Chloris + RetaliationFollow

I am leveling warrior to use for chloris farming as well as leveling a whm mule to dual box it and was wondering how well retaliation would work with a somewhat gimp whm healer?

I am thinking about using the level 99 Gaxe Dies Irae, which has +10% crit rate +9% crit damage, but also -30 accuracy, what do you guys think about this weapon for fighting something like chloris? For gear i'll have mostly af+1 with the af+2 hat.

Which atma would you recommend, i'm thinking Apoc, RR, SS, and if you have any gear advice that would be fairly inexpensive/easy to get that would help out let me know.

Thanks, Fantus

In all honesty you don't need to raise warrior to take out chloris. It is a great job for it as I did most of mine and my friends Chloris's on my warrior dual-boxed with my whm character.

On the other hand, I also dual boxed it as my thf and also my monk with little trouble. I have about average gear (above pink and perle sets though) and nothing else special really. You just have to be quick on the debuffs.

With regard to the GA, you can easily compensate for the drop in acc with food and to be honest, that much -accuracy shouldn't be a massive problem at 99 anyway against chloris. I just used a standard AH Great Axe at the time if I remember correctly. Your Atma choices seem decent also, I used the same atmas when duoing it as warrior. As monk I switched to GH, RR, Apoc.

My one tip which you will already know is take plenty of holy waters to spam (create a macro), you will need them if dual boxing and don't have a backup tank to take over when the doom timer kicks in and you hit the dirt lol.

Other than that its pretty much just engage and whack away lol. The hardest part of the whole thing for me was gathering the KIs to pop him lol.

Good luck with your kills.

-30 acc shouldn't hurt you at all in this scenario. The only mob in that entire zone you might notice it on is Adze, and even then, simply being 99 with capped skill might trump even that nowadays.

Retaliation+counterstance+gnarl horn is pretty awesome.

I didn't think Counterstance and Retaliation stacked?

Well, you can't counter and retaliate a single hit... but you can retaliate any hit that you don't counter >_>

I get both counters and retaliates when I WAR/MNK stuff.

Ah okay. Someone told me they don't stack. Hadn't tried it myself.

Oh they stack, and Chloris' Hundred Fists = Hundred Great Axes, most times I was swinging faster than the animation would account for. Ukko's Fury every 3 seconds for a minute straight reallllly cuts down on fight time on this guy Smiley: tongue
