1.0  Introduction
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     As a long time player of DAoC, I have spent much time on the battlefield 
killing and being killed.  One thing many people forget to pay attention to, 
or completely ignore, are the bonuses and penalties that weapons and armors 
have versus other armors and weapons.  When I was looking for info on this I 
found myself having to ask various people and looking through various 
websites to find the modifiers.  So I decided to compile the info I gathered 
and turn it into a reference sheet for my personal use on my two handed 
armsman, but I decided to go ahead and do it for each Albion tank so more 
people can make use of it.  The bonus/penalty can be pretty harsh and certain 
classes using certain weapons just aren't great against other classes using 
certain weapons.  This is not a full fledged walkthrough.  It is a small guide
for Albion tanks.  It is based only on the factors listed below.  Lastly, 
weapons that can be used but not specced (cleric with mace for example) 
will not be included as a legitimate threat.  Remember.  This is a guide 
written by a fighter, for a fighter.  And that is what it is mainly for.  
However, I have tried my best to give a measure against other classes as well.
Some classes I couldn't use the exact same method for so they may seem a 
a bit off.  This will generally be on non-tank classes though.

     10-2-03.  The Albion Tank RvR Guide is completed.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.3  About Dark Age of Camelot
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Dark Age of Camelot (DAoC) is Mythic Entertainments well known PvP 
oriented MMoRPG.  It's defining feature is it's un-equaled PvP system designed 
so players can participate in large scale battles such as group versus group, 
guild versus guild, realm versus realm, or whatever possible way to mix and 
match it.  The very heart of the game is its RvR system and is what has kept 
it alive where other new games have failed.  It also has it's share of large 
scale PvE encounters for those who like to fight monsters as well.  How are 
the armies divided?  By realm.  The DAoC world consists of 3 realms.  
Albion, the basic knights and wizards type of realms.  Hibernia, the mystical 
realm where creatures like elves and firblogs dwell.  And Midgard, based on 
Norse mythology, the muscle realm that hardy dwarves and hulking trolls call 
home.  

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.4  What is RvR
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     RvR is the common term used for Realm versus Realm combat, the heart of 
DAoC.  Here's how it works.  There are 3 realms as I have explained above.  
Each realm is at war with the other 2 realms.  Each realm has a safe home zone 
where players don't have to worry about attacks from enemy realms.  These home 
zones are protected by 2 border keeps that are located at the realms frontier 
zone.  The border keep sare protected by VERY powerful guards.  Players aren't 
meant to be able to get into an enemys home realm.  Once a player steps out of 
those gates at the border keep, however, he had best be prepared.  Anything 
goes in the frontier.  Kill or be killed.  You can be attacked by an enemy 
antwhere, anytime.  Players in one realm can not directly communicate 
verbally with players from another realm due to their difference in language.  
They can, however emote to eachother and use third party means to communicate 
such as chat rooms and message boards.

     RvR is a step above standard PvP offered in other MMoRPG's, however.  
Literally hundreds of players can fight it out at the same time in massive 
warlike battles in the field.  Furthermore, each realm has outposts set up 
throughout their frontier.  These outposts are generally safe.  However, the 
purpose of these outposts is to provide even more flavor to the RvR scene.  
Outposts can be attacked and taken over by enemy realms.  These battles can 
be very short, or hours long depending on how many players defend the 
outpost.  And lastly is the core of RvR.  The relics.  Powerful items that 
grant extra strength to whichever realm holds them.  Each realm has 2 
relics.  Each one protected in a seperate castle in a seperate frontier 
zone.  One relic brings strength and the other brings magical power.  
Castles are a much tougher battle and require many more players than 
keeps.  The guards here are very strong and numerous, depending on how many 
keeps the realm has.  All of this dumped into the pot cooks up into what we 
call RvR, the heart of DAoC.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.5  Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     This is just a small guide intended for Albion tanks.  It is simply a 
compilation of info I dug up from various places.  I then made a small 
numerical system to gauge each classes odds versus other classes.  PLEASE 
keep the following in mind.  I can't stress this enough.  This guide is NOT
a set in stone representation of which class can beat which.  It is meant 
as a reference guide for the Albion tank to see how he stacks up against other
classes.  Obviously, against some classes such as archers and casters, this 
guide will be 95% useless.  It should, however, give the Albion tank a fairly 
accurate measure of his capabilities against more fighter oriented classes 
based on mechanical factors that players can't change such as weapon bonuses 
and penalties.  Factors that depend on the player himself are not included.  
If you really suck and go try to fight someone who you are rated 8 against
and he beats the crap out of you, it's your fault.  Practice your class.  
Learn how to play it efficiently and try again.

     Please do not e-mail me saying "You're numbers are all wrong, No way can 
a 2h armsman beat a pbaoe chanter" or whatever class.  I am well aware of 
these things.  This guide is not written in that mindset.  It is meant as a 
tool for you to see how the class stacks in terms of damage type versus armor 
type.  CERTAINLY do not pester me with emails saying "lololol n00b j00 
suxx0r!11!one!!1one!oNe!1".  I will not waste my time humiliating you and 
will simply delete your message and block you.  What I will accept is 
corrections to mistakes I've made or to wrong info that I've obtained.  If 
you do e-mail me with corrections please send me a link to the documentation 
where the info can be found.

     In a few places I have taken some class balance issues into account, so
if the number seems off that may be why.  It might also mean I screwed up.

     This is my first guide ever so it's bound to have some kinks in it.  
Nothing is perfect the moment it is first completed, however.  It will change 
with time.  As a 2 year veteran of DAoC, I feel the opinions and descriptions 
are fairly accurate.  I don't want to hear about your uncle who works at 
Squaresoft who solos purples without downtime using his 2h pally.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.0  About Armsman
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     The armsman.  Albions resident meatshield.  Not quite the knight in 
shining armor.  Closer to the war-hardened footsoldier.  The armsman is 
considered albions main tank, although they aren't as good at soaking up 
damage as the paladin.  Armsmen are generally thought of as good damage 
dealers who can take their fair share of punishment.  They have three 
different choices available to them for weaponry.  The basic sword/shield 
fighter, the 2 handed weapon user, and the polearm specialist.  A sword/shield 
armsman is not known so much for his damage as his consistancy.  They have 
the highest survivability of the 3 paths, but the lowest damage.  Next is the 
armsman who chooses to ignore that shield and take up a larger weapon such as 
a giant axe axe or a claymore.  This type of armsman has a higher damage 
output than his sword/shield counterpart but he can't fight as long because 
without a shield he will sustain more hits.  Last is the polearmsman.  
These guys are human can-openers.  Or troll can-openers.  Well you get the 
point.  Probably the most common type of armsman around.  They do massive 
damage per hit with their large polearms such as halberds or bills.  
This comes with it's drawback though.  As you can imagine, using such a weapon 
isn't as easy as using a sword.  Polearms take quit awhile to swing, and when 
they miss, it can really cost the user.  2-3 misses with a sword is just an 
annoyance whereas 2-3 misses with a polearm can ruin the armsmans day.  
Whichever path you choose, they all have their ups and downs.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.0  About Paladins
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     This is Albions knight in shining armor.  A knight who serves the church 
and is endowed with holy powers.  The paladin is not a damage dealer.  They 
are DAoC's paragon of defense.  A strong paladin can solo multiple mobs 
stronger than himself and come out  with most of their hp left.  With their 
weak damage output however, such a battle can take a long time.  The paladin 
can can use either sword/shield or 2 handed weapons.  Almost all paladins 
go with the former.  The bread and butter of a paladin are chants.  
Chants are a group ability the paladin can use to increase defense, offense, 
regain health, regain endurance, or increase resists.  Well played and 
equipped, paladins can accomplish truly amazing feats, but they still hit 
like a baby.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.0  About Mercenaries
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     The mercenary.  A fighter for hire?  I wish.  In DAoC nothing more than a 
guy who uses 2 weapons.  Still the most fun class I've played.  Great damage 
output, but lacking in the defense department.  They don't have the whopping 
damage of a polearmsman, but their strength is in their reliability.  You can 
pretty much count on a merc for damage because missing isn't a big deal for 
them.  They hit fast and can hit with both weapons.  They have the ability to 
throw dirt in their enemys eyes, causing them a 50% chance to fumble their 
attacks for 10 seconds each time they hit for a total of 40 seconds.  They 
also have a fluff ability called flurry.  A direct damage shout on a 2 minute 
timer that used dual weild to calculate its damage.  Mercs are albions best 
tank for taking out casters and support classes, or at least keep them 
running so they can't heal their friends and blast yours.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5.0  About Reavers
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Albions fighter/caster hybrid.  Kind of the opposite of a paladin.  They 
serve Arawn, lord of the underworld.  Powerful fighters that get magical 
abilities to damage their enemy and steal their life as well as make them more 
vulnerable to attacks.  They have the choice to spec in a new weapon type 
unique to them.  Flex, which has possibly the most painful positional styles 
in the game.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
6.0  Modifiers:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     The following modifiers are the ONLY ones that apply to this guide.  Such 
things as class, race, spec, good/bad gear, % resist from sc, realm rank are 
not factored in.

Bonus and Penalty - The bonus or penalty applied for certain damage types 
versus certain armor types is said to be 10%, however there are players who 
swear that the number is actually more like 20%.  Either way, it is a 
powerful factor.

Type of armor - Plate, chain, studded, etc.

Damage modifiers - Damage type of the character versus armor type of the 
opponent.  Will vary from person to person.

Armor modifiers - Armor type of the character versus damage type of the 
opponent.  Will vary from person to person.

Weapon size - Large weapons have 1 modifier.  Using large weapons halves 
your opponents chance to parry.

Shields - Shields have 1 modifier.  Someone using 2 weapons gets a 50% 
bonus versus shields.

     Keep in mind that there is no numerical modifier for large weapons versus 
shields.  However it is generally accepted that large weapons are not 
the best choice to tackle a shield user due to their slow attack speed.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7.0 Legend:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     I will give the character a number for each class that he goes against.  
The higher the number the better.  The range will be 1-10, though you probably 
won't see any extremes in this guide yet but in future versions I will add 
more factors.

1 - You'd have a better chance to win the lottory
2 - Awful
3 - Bad
4 - Poor
5 - Average
6 - Good
7 - Great
8 - Excellent
9 - Terrific
10 - Fish in a barrel

     The base number will be 5.  This means that based on damage type versus 
armor type the 2 are completely neutral to eachother.  For each advantage 
or disadvantage I will add or subtract 1.

     Here are some terms you may see used in this guide and their meanings.

2h - two handed

     The format for the table is as follows.  The classes you can fight are 
listed vertically.  Your class will be listed horizontally next to it.  
Locate you're class in the list below.  Next to it will be a figure such
as 1a or 2b.  Once you have found the figure that represents your class/spec,
Proceed to the table.  Choose the enemy you want to measure yourself against.
Finally, find your figure in the list next to the class.  There will be a 
hyphen next to it. The number right after the hyphen is your rating against 
that particular class.  Alternatively, you can use the "Find" function 
(ctrl+f) to jump directly to your figure.

Here's an example.  If you are a 2 handed slash armsman and want to check 
yourself against a spear using hero you can do it one of two ways.  First, 
you could just go down to the Hibernia section, find hero, and locate your 
figure next to it.  Or you hold the "ctrl" button and press "f".  A box 
will come up.  Type in 1a and press the "Find next" button.  
It will jump to the next figure that says 1a.  Keep pressing the button 
until you see your figure highlighted next to the spear hero.

1a. 2h Slash Arms/Pally
1b. 2h Thrust Arms/Pally
1c. 2h Crush Arms/Pally
1d. Slash/shield Arms/Pally
1e. Thrust/shield ArmsPally
1f. Crush/shield Arms/Pally
1g. Slash Polearmsman
1h. Thrust Polearmsman
1i. Crush Polearmsman

2a. Slash/dw merc
2b. Thrust/dw merc
2c. Crush/dw merc
2d. Slash/shield merc/reaver
2e. Thrust/shield merc/reaver
2f. Crush/shield merc/reaver



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7.1  Example:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Player 1 - Armsman using 2 handed sword and wearing plate.

Player 2 - Hero using a celtic spear and wearing scale (chain).

     The armsman starts with a 5.  Let's look at his weapon first.  2 handed 
sword does slash damage which is strong against scale.  Armsman gets 1 point 
bringing him to 6.  Armsman is using a large weapon which halves enemies 
chance to parry.  Armsman gets 1 point bringing him to 7.  Now on to the 
armsmans armor versus the heros weapon.  Plate armor is strong versus thrust 
damage.  The hero is using a spear which does thrust damage.  Another point 
for the armsman bringing him to 8.  We aren't quite finished yet.  The hero 
is also using a large weapon, so the armsmans chance to parry is halved as 
well, so they even out.  We will take one of those points away.  The armsmans 
final score versus the hero is a 7.  His chance to beat the hero is great.  
Simple, no?  Now on to the guide.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
8.0  The Guide
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Now we get to the good stuff.  Here you will find how your two handed 
armsman stacks up against every class in every realm.  Remember these three 
things.  First, I have included every class for the sake of completeness.  
This guide will actually be pretty much useless as a measure against caster 
type classes.  Against another fighter of equal level, however, this guide 
should indeed provide a fairly accurate measure of your capabilities.  
Second, this guide does not take into account things like realm rank.  If 
you go out and attack a realm rank 10 with your realm rank 2 armsman because 
you have a high score against him, you're asking for trouble.  Last, the 
higher the number, the better chance you have of winning, just remember 
the above.

such, please e-mail me telling me what is wrong, the correction, and any 
documentation backing your claim.  Until I see documentation or hear it from a 
trusted source, nothing will be changed.

     As I stated earlier, do not waste my time sending me e-mails ridiculing
me or my work.  Such messages will be deleted, you will be blocked, and I 
will have a good laugh at you're expense for willingly proving your idiocy.  
In addition, don't bother e-mailing me with grammatical corrections.  I read 
this guide over and was able to understand it perfectly.  Do not contact me 
asking "what class is better" questions.

     If you follow these guidelines and consider you're email to be within 
them, send it here.

     If you want to talk about something, you can contact me via icq or 
aim.  Don't worry, I don't bite and am generally a really nice guy.  A gamer 
just like you.  You can reach me here.
