Top 4 Tips For Building Your Giant’s Keep B10 (GB10) Team

Summoner’s War is all about farming Giant’s Keep these days. Whether you’re just starting out, you’ve been playing for a while, or you’ve totally mastered the game, Giant’s Keep is a great place to get runes and upgrade your team. Even though it’s been nerfed, it still outclasses other areas when it comes to farming efficiency.

When Can I Farm GB10?

A rule of thumb is to have all 5 and 6 star runes on your mons that are powered up to at least +12, after that you’ll have the stats and experience that you need to defeat the challenges GB10 will throw at you. In Summoners War Giants Keep is pretty challenging. Leveling your team up to lvl 40 beforehand will help you out a lot.

What Team Should I Run?

Your Summoners War GB10 team can consist of whatever your strongest monsters are, as long as you meet a few basic criteria:

1. Heals and Def Buffs: It’s very important that your team can sustain the high damage output that you’ll encounter. Having support monsters to help mitigate damage is key.

2. Buff Removal and Cleanse: Your task of sustaining your team gets a lot harder when the boss debuffs you and buffs himself. If either his self-buff or his defense debuff is up when he swings at you, you’re going to take a LOT of damage.

3. Glancing or Atk Debuffs: One optional way of trying to mitigate damage is to debuff the boss yourself. If you’re experienced, you can use high ACC monsters to make the boss deal less damage instead of purging his buffs. If you’re new, try doing both.

4. Damage Over Time; The sustained nature of the fights you’ll do with your Summoners War giants team means that damage over time is particularly efficient. Bring some DoTs in addition to your strongest nukers.

What’s The Very Best GB10 Team?

One recommended beginner team is:

  • Veromos (as leader)
  • Belladeon
  • Shannon
  • Bernard
  • and your best support monster

What Runes And Stats Should I Use?

If you’d like to 100% clear GB10 on auto, you’ll want to get the best stats on your monsters. It’s recommended to have at least 15k health on all of your monsters, with 17k health or more being ideal for monsters without the Wind type. Your debuffers should have at least 45% ACC to ensure good uptime, while 170 SDP is regarded as a bare minimum. Most people like to run swift and focus runes on everyone with SPD, HP%, and ACC as needed.

The Best ESO Nightblade Builds For Max DPS

nightblade-build-esoNightblades make powerful DPS characters. In fact, DPS is probably the best Nightblade Build for the Elder Scrolls online. Nightblades can also make powerful tanks and decent combat control characters, but as DPS they excel. A good DPS build takes advantage of all three skill lines to create a master of the ESO battlefield.

Obviously, in order to do damage, a DPS character needs damage-causing abilities. So it’s someone ironic that what may be the most important aspect of focusing on DPS in an ESO Nightblade Builds is the stealth abilities. DPS aren’t tanks, they aren’t built to take insane damage and survive. But Nightblades don’t have many abilities that deliver one-shot skills. Instead, they are like a one-man wolf pack, slowly bleeding out and weakening the enemy. The stealth bonuses of the Shadowing skill line allows you to attack over and over again, while preventing the enemy from making an effective counterattack.

The Siphon skill line and Assassin skill lines are where a DPS Nightblade does all of their class-based damage. Careful use of the Siphon line weakens the enemy, leaving them vulnerable to the finishing moves of the Assassin skill line. Soul Shred, Strife, Agony, and Drain Power will be the preferred Siphoning skills for a straight DPS Nightblade build. Siphoning Strikes can also be useful if you run out of Magicka or Stamina frequently, but this skill should be avoided in DPS as much as possible, since it reduces your damage.

From the Assassination skill line, Death Stroke and Haste are the best skills for a DPS character, with Mark Target and Assassin’s Blade also being extremely useful.

You get bonuses for paired short swords or daggers, so those are definitely weapons of choice for Nightblade DPS builds. A bow can be a good alternate weapon–especially when paired with Teleport Strike from the Assassin skill line. Since DPS are in the thick of combat, medium armor, or a mix of medium and light armor, will help you stay alive long enough to take out enemies, without nerfing your stealth abilities.

A Top Nightblade ESO Builds Guide will usually include detailed breakdowns of the best skill combinations for a Nightblade. In the end, the way to get max DPS is to forget the “heroic” one hit kills of the DragonKnight or Templar. Focus on using Siphoning and standard attacks to weaken your enemy, with Assassin skills to finish them off.

The Best ESO Guide For Consoles: PS4 & Xbox One

eso-guide-secretsWhat makes a good Guide For The Elder Scrolls Online? How do you find the best guide for you? Does it matter whether a guide is written for consoles or PC? Literally dozens of guides for Elder Scrolls online litter the internet landscape. Some are great, some are horrid, and some are okay. Almost all are written for PC.

If you are looking forward to the ESO release for PS4 or Xbox One, you may be tempted to pick up one of these guides to see what you have to look forward to, but that probably isn’t the best idea. An ESO GUIDE for PS4 or for Xbox One is different from a guide for PC. This is because while the games will be very similar, they are not the same. We won’t know all the differences between the console versions and the PC version until the console versions are released, but folks following the industry information and press releases have already pointed out some differences, and other differences, like the way using  a controller vs keyboard will affect gameplay are obvious to any experienced gamers.

Luckily, there are Guides for the Elder Scrolls Online already available for consoles. These guides are written with the key differences between PC and console gaming in mind, to make them as useful as possible for console gamers. With even the beta dates for the ESO console versions uncertain, players can be sure that these guides aren’t perfect–ZeniMax will definitely make more changes between the beta and final release. A good guide will keep this in mind and make updates available as the game changes, so that when the release date arrives players can know everything they need to play ESO on the platform of their choice.

The best ESO guides for consoles are the ones written specifically FOR consoles, like those on ESO Mastery Guides. While these guides will need to be updated as new information and updates are released, they are far better for console gamers than trying to learn about ESO through ‘complete’ guides written for PC, which are based around a completely different style of game play and game experience. So for the best ESO console guide, look for a guide that is geared towards the console you play on. You’ll be glad you did.
