Question about transgear
What are some of the easier maps to farm Trans gear on. So far if i can find/ make a build i can do the normal maps on NMHC survival. However i never have a single piece of trans drop. So i was wondering what are some of the easier DLC maps maby that would give trans.

doing insane hardcore on tavern defense with 1 other person will reward 1 very nice trans peice at the end. how ever you need a high dps char to kill the 3 boss's at the end. normal maps did not have nightmare built into them to start infact orginally insane was the highest they went. after the expansion (lost eternia shards) nightmare was added and lvl 74 and mythical gear was put in. to farm trans gear you have to do lvls that started during the same time as aquanos or reach high lvls morrago (how ever trendy was on a "stupidly ♥♥♥♥ing large map kick" for a very long time making morrago a pain in the ♥♥♥ to build and farm and defend) is not nearly as easy to learn as aquanos if you put in the time to study it. suggestion is start with mistmire forest and learn how to build it. skip morrago. and then learn aqanos. getting good at aquanos will get you trans gear biggest problem is beating it once on nightmare if you dont have a high dps char to kill the boss solo or find decent high end chars to help you. for challenges that have chances of dropping trans start with shipwrek ruins monsterfest and go up from there thats the start of aquanos

We gave Misty a try, and wiped on wave 10, but we have gotten better gear since then. However we cant really kill the kracken on Nm aquanos

Hello: Try doing - The Throne Room HC NM MM - survival - around wave 22 some odd trans start to drop (Pink dots) - plus awesome mana amounts - i you want armor have a summoner or two in the battle. It seems the be the easiest build to keep going at a lower character level.

Do you know of any builds that are quick and easy to set up for that map?

Hardly any easy builds anymore :) And also testing and tweaking is the way to go.
For throne hc mix it took me some tries to get a new build going (used to afk farm it before heli-ogres)... which does something like this.
High hp char with decent upgrading abilities and some dps is a must on any map - 200k+ hp/high resist, if you dont have one, create one now and get some gear... there is no way around it.
Builders with 2000+ in main build stats, musts are good ev for beams, good summoner for minion walls, decent aura andor trapper and squire.

Hmm ..
Beams with archer minions on them as walls, and mage in range to heal them, see how you can tweak it - as usual reflection beams right intop/front of minion wall.
1 str drain 1 snare in middle, covering all walls (needs good range prob 2000+).
Some kind of harpoon setup (on beams onviously) in the middle, that will cover all walls - I use 2x4 I think halfway up on the far stairs.
Stun traps 2 each side, 1 top(front side) to prevent de-summon of your defenses.
Did I put two electric auras up ? I dont remember, check your du.

Heh really hard to describe without showind it lol.. but half the fun is experimenting.
Start on wave 15ish .. or earlier if you have trouble upgrading fast enough.
I still to repair during waves after 20, but I guess the afk days are over.
ALWAYS ALWAYS only have summoners logged in after lvl 20, so your drops will be armor and not weapons.

ah I forgot, you need reflection beams on the top-front part where ogres will walk by and shoot at your harpoons downstairs if you dont have those refl.

Most of my tower builders are 2k+ and my dps is a barb, works well enough. I found a pretty easy to maintain build which so far you can mostly afk just some repairs needed

I tweaked it alittle and put two mages at each wall, other then that it holds rather easily

Cheers :) For farming I turned to tavern nm hc mix, found me a decent setup that goes to 23-27 depending on luck, yields 10+ trans each run. As usual minions walls, stun trap, harps .. luck but afk is out of the question :)

No stuns? no str drain ? no wall on top ? no reflection ? How that build you linked could work I dont get, but hehe if it works it works;)

Thats one of the harder maps for me since i dont fully have the build down, since i always get rushed by ogres and end up losing an entire minion wall. on hard hc alone xD just need to find one that works if i want to do that one
Celticstorm Feb 17, 2013 @ 11:29pm 
Oh and the build was really strange when i looked at it too, but since they are slowed into mobs the harpoons just kinda clean up and my barb will one shot everything but ogres if need be
