Fire second march Dual mage w. Baldwin & Trajan (2.2 patch update)
This guide is part of my article series on fire builds. If this build is not to your likeing, have a look at the rest of my builds on the lightning build page. I have multiple builds for any taste available, IB, PvE, arena/ToS builds and F2P/cheap builds.
ToK passives spread between main and secondary march
It is very important that you think hard on what you want to run as your main and as your secondary army. Your main needs to be as strong as possible with no quarters given. This means, you need to make yoiur secondary team synergize with the ToK skills you have left!
This build is made for players who run heavy physical damage teams as mains. Thus you will have all the strong magic passives available. Moreover, fire does well as a secondary because it scales nicely with graces and blessings (which are not strong enough to be used in main).
This article is on dual mage fire. This build revolves around dealing massive amounts of damage in record times. By relying on heavy crit-buff stacking and magic damage debuffing enemies, we are able to boost the output of Wu (and Baldwin) to insane highs).
This is an example of this build in action versus a shadow main 30k stronger than the fire.
I am personally running it with Baldwin because I like the magic damage debuff, but it will work just as well – maybe even better – with Merlin as the second mage.
This is a F2P build able to kill even big spenders. You can unlock Baldwin for free via events and max him only with gems. Making this build F2P. If you don’t want to do that, run Merlin instead!
This build perform well versus shadow, however, it looses big time to holy! It also has a hard time nuking defensivly built earth setups, but is otherwise a very good and solid build.
Can be altered to include Khan-fire (see guide) if you are having issues with earths and holys.
This setup is pretty standard and revolves around pumping big magic burst damage from Wu and Baldwin. Trajan and William provides insane crit buffs pumping your mages to the max.
ToK passive setup (second march)
This build can both function as a main and as a secondary march. Please see my guide on running this as a secondary march here.
You want to run this passive loadout:
Empress Wu: Annihilation + Flame Protection + Chase
