    i completely disagree, unless you're 5 manning it there's no reason to take a mage over any other DPS class. they're only useful at the start, after that if they AE they'll just die, plus you cant polymorph undead so they cant do much there either.

    Ok. Strat can't be done without AOE, choose your class.

    yes it can, the only part of strat where AOE is even useful is the very first few pulls and even then it's not a necessity.

    Rats nears Baron. Skeles after Aboms near Baron. Skeles summoned by Baron. Slimes and maggots spawned by Aboms and supply crates.

    I see many uses for AOE.

    That's just the Baron side. The SM side you pretty much see groups left and right, not to mention when you get in the SM part with battlemages, conjurors, initiates, priests, etc.

    I'd also like to see a warrior or rogue walk into one of the traps that you have to go through without an AoE class. We'll see how long they survive with 30 rats/insects attacking them.

    i didnt say it wasnt helpful, but i did disagree with your statement that doing strat without AE is impossible.

    actually, it does happen sometimes. Like an elusive deer, he leaves an argument; with only his retreating "semantics" excuse hanging in the air, he is gone.
