East Thalim kiting medic

Postby JaVa » Sun Jul 03, 2016 4:08 pm

As medic is no big damage dealer, his time and speed can be used very well in east Thalim. In most cases I see medics just hanging around and dying for no reason. Instead, they could kite almost everything and let DPS classes kill the monsters.

Skill Identifiers (SI)
- Twinkle Toes/ Light Armor /Veteran for faster moving. At least one of them, if you have enough XP
- Energetic for more energy or Barbaric for riffle butt or Blood In Blood Out if you are big experienced guy

Items
- Everything that makes you faster and harder to kill
- HK42 weapon (+movement)
- Kevlar armor or OPA later on (extra shield and in the later case movement)
- Flashlight for avoiding and detecting invisible
Secondary:
- KI or energy cells for healing
- MGL or grenades for killing mobs in emergency cases and for activating explosives

Skill build
If it is likely that noobs will die soon, go Revive 1 asap. Otherwise wait a bit
- First Aid 2
- Revive
- First Aid 4
- Augmentation 1 (drug yourself if you need to move faster)



At the beginning, scout for HK42, flashlight and other minor items. Grab everything and bring it in the city.
Let everyone know that you will be at the east end of the city. Everyone who needs healing can come to you. Also do not forget to heal all the soldiers, if a boss makes it to the city.

Kite all monsters around the entrance but DO NOT let them go inside. You can go in circles and use trees for big bosses. SFAAT with his soldiers on the high ground should kill everything easily.

In case of emergency, run to the upper end of the map, then to the left and then jump over the fence. This way you drag monsters out and pay some time to the others to reinforce. Move to the exit back, and start kiting again.

If someone dies and you have to go for them, ask for escort and for someone, who will do the kiting instead of you

Nice and very complete tutorial :)

Not sure if a ki is secundary even for a town kiting medic. Of course it may depend on the quality of the kites, and on the skill of other players to avoid the hits.

You could add a video with some didactic and awesome kiting moments, it could explain a lot. Sometimes when I say that East needs a kiter, I have the feeling that people don't understand what I mean.
Well I suggest that but I am a noob in video, never done one :gene:
I'd like to learn soon though.

Well, KI is very useful for every medic but I think that with 12 players, there are classes that use it even more. E.g. medic in the field or Fire Support Specialist.
Anyway, I am no big expert on kiting but making a video is a good idea. If I play medic, I will try to record one.

Good build. I would not get VT (or LA even, personally) with a kiting build though. Mistakes do happen and things do go as unplanned, so you'd need to be able to take a hit or two. Sudden Lacerti/Arachnathid charges that push you into a hunter, Commandos, Lickers, pathing failures, someone deciding to grenade/MGL the Gourmand (and you) that you are kiting, irresponsible fire rounds & smoke grenade combination...

With some augmentation or Soldier Skills 3, you are already fast enough to outrun most of the stuff.

I would get BA TT if you are really, really focusing on kiting. But then, taking a Cavalry Scout might be a better choice. Otheriwse BO BA is extremely strong.

Yes I had not seen VT, VT only gives a big damage bonus lowering a lot the hitpoints, it is not indicated at all to kite, and for a medic there is such better SI.

In top level play if a medic is assigned to Thalim it is to heal NPCs/Other players guarding it, Kiting is left to classes like the CE, SFAAT, and Cav Scout. Sure if they are busy and stuff is about to come in then sure go ahead and kite, But your main focus should be on heals and revives.

And yes VT and/or LA is bad on medic if for no other reason then it makes it easier for PMCs to kill you [Double Ignis can spawn at the end of chapter 1 if you stall on the Gus/Highlands/Mayor mission and PMCs spawn during Chapter 3 Love].

https://youtu.be/gpVDJJQUDbU. Not perfect kitting but it shows how it could be done and that with luck you can outrun normal Cacuman

First sergent, grats :)
Nice video, but maybe need more pictures per second ? No idea if it is easily doable, but here it is sometimes hardly understandable. Which program are you using ?

I used Snagit to record SC replay. I think the second mentioned is the bigger problem.

Is it free ? I see I can test it for 15 days. Will it be stuck after ?
