Monk Guardian. Noob Question.

#1RyuklovesapplesPosted 5/11/2012 9:44:22 AM
So on my Mage I got a monk guardian. It was just given to me, so I didn't complain. However, my current pet is just some apprentice guardian. When I have apprentice guardian out my towers do over twice as much dmg, but when I have the monk guardian out, the dmg doesn't change even though the stats on it are so much better.

What I am really wondering is, do only that class's guardian's help that class's buildings?

No, each guardian has a stat it increases.

Monk- tower range
Apprentice- tower dmg
Squire- tower health
Huntress- tower speed

The only ones that increase dps really are the huntress and apprentice. The others are not all that great

Bah! Then I spent 10 mil upgrading this thing for nothing! Well my friend will enjoy it probably. He always has to keep upgrading his range on his auras and this could save him a lot of exp. I'll continue to use my boost from my pet. Thank though! :D

TBH the Monk guardian is pretty much useless. High-end gear will allow you to build everything with more than enough effective range so there's never even a reason to upgrade that stat or use a guardian to boost it.

Haha thanks. I'll tell him.

So that's what they do. And here I was using them thinking they actually boosted everything... Is it written somewhere and I'm just blind and stupid, or it is like the skills, where I can't seem to find any in-game explanation for them?

Trendy does an amazing job of not explaining anything.

When you put your mouse over the individual skills there are descriptions saying what they do. Additionally you will see a description when you go o use the skill in game. Its just a matter of reading the description which most people don't do, especially during combat phases.

monk guardian can be useful for monk towers, unsurprisingly. majority of attack towers fire way to slowly to make use of the extra range, but slow/drain/lightning auras can take advantage of the doubled radius increase.

You just lost the game.

Do you need to turn something on to see that? Because I just see the name and that's it. Had to go on the wiki to find out what the skills did.
Can you tell on what screen you see the description by just mousing over them?
