I was wondering is there a possibility to have a normal froob doc? I mean, able to cast CH, UBT and some higher heals and wield, for example, 2 dogs of war for some dmg. Head implant is giving me headaches…
No personal experience, but check out this thread on the old forums
yeah why wouldn’t it be possible? all of that stuff is castable. for a mainhand pistol the master engineer pistol is the best for froobs. Any profession can build it.
That is exactly my problem. With aofroobs gone, there is only official archived forums left with info mainly for paid content. Thanks for the link on very rare froob issues there.
And I prefer dogs to engi pistol due to specials.
Try using the Wayback Machine to access earlier versions of AOFroobs. Such as this.
Not all of the threads are saved, but a good number have been.
keune you just use the dog in the offhand for fling shot and then the MEP in mainhand for the damage and mods.
Just as an inspiration this is outdated setup of my old doctor:
I’m pretty sure I was able to cast UBT as well as CH and top heal, but that was before the rebalance. I think I had to compromise on the DoTs.
Edit: I’ve checked with aoitems and it seems that all important froob doctor nanos have been unaffected by the rebalance in terms of the reqs. With one exception being the Lifegiving Elixir which has been made uncastable by froobs anyway. You could perhaps reach the reqs of Emergency Medical Response with BM/MM oriented setup
probably even self-buffed (it should castable with mochs). And you can easily reach the reqs of Deep Tissue Repair which is now the best “standard” single heal.
In summary with that setup you can cast every top froob nano except for those 2 top single heals (Lifegiving Elixir and
Recuperative Respite) and nanos that require MC, which means probably no LC and some DoTs (something you can live without tho).
In case you’re still looking for ideas:
Here’s my (nanomage) docs’ current 1he setup.
+164 nano delta
Selfcast UBT, CH, LC, top team hp, 950 bm/mm heal and top dots etc.
However, I don’t think pistol is that great for most froob classes since the clusters conflict both with nanoskills and nanodelta.
The nanodelta is crucial for most froob classes imo.
601 psychic & 164 nanodelta gives you
+1680 nano/min with Soothing Calm.
Compare that to PNH that gives 940 nano/min.
I think azure chest is better fordoctors than the expensive kevlar vest, not sure though. if you can reach 45% elsewhere then I guess you dontneed it, but its one of the best -%cost items out there.
actually isnt the cost cap for nanomages higher? so you could still use the azure chest.
Absolutely, azure chest would be amazing. Then I’d have -55% cost (cap for nanomages). Unfortunately the reqs for UBT and RR are quite high, and at least in this setup you need the nanoskills from jones vest to be able to selfcast those nanos.
Refined imps might change that tho. I haven’t gotten around to putting in those yet
I know this is an old thread, but I’ve been working on a froob doc. Currently, I can cast everything but Lifegiving Elixir. (obviously)
Still a few levels to go till 200, and I’ll probably change some stuff. But here’s how it looks so far anyway: https://auno.org/ao/equip.php?saveid=207123
It doesn’t use Jone’s vest, but to get the Lya glasses on, you’d have to be Nanomage anyway. Just a slightly different way to do it I guess.
Here is my Ideal froob NM doc setup, intended to reach high max health, nanopool, and -%nanocost. lots of psychic in the setup means a high nano delta. Any weapon setup would work but I would probably use dual gelids for soloing.
I’ve a neutral froob Opifex doctor wielding Gelids or ITD (can easily swap ITD with minimal clinic work). I wanted a doctor that could do things with no OSB:
Beat Fazael solo. Just because.
High First Aid skill for stims.
Top the 1HE weapons soft cap self buffed.
Perform middle-weight healing duties. ( I’ve a L200 Trader that heals, too)
Support my pet-heavy box teams.
It’s an easily made utility build. Nothing rare or uber. No tara stuff. She wears a few QL 220 refined imps mainly for 1HE, nanocost and skilllock with a 4/5 gladiator robe, azure gear, Lya’s Sangi slippers/glasses, Bracelet of Pacifism (2), Smuggled Nanite Merit Board Base and Yutto ncu. Ring choices always confounded me. I just couldn’t decide what served best - so I constantly swapped rings
If the target can be UBT’d, I can beat it. She crafts and uses the old white/gray health/nano chargers for use during combat, so I really don’t miss not having a super high nanodelta. YMMV. Other froob doctors heal far better in raids, so it’s not that big of a deal to me. I can do the fill-in touch up heals
Random thoughts. For raids, 1HE melee distance can be a pain in the butt. No alpha damage. The Gelid do proc like crazy. She rarely if ever uses DoT’s. High close combat/dodge evades and slider settings means her health is rarely an issue. She uses QL220 personal service towers when appropriate.
UBT combined with Trader nanite drains and team ac buffs like Pawnbroker turn L215 Real Mean Enforcers in RK missions into kittens. That nano combo makes things so much easier and less heal-dependent.
great easy to get ring for doctors is the ring from mantis den. it now drops up to ql 200 from the mantises.
Related to the OP, you may consider using psychic in the shiny head implant slot to reach 2 second nano delta tick. It all depends on your breed and the overall goals for your build.
