(Guide to Best possible maxed out Traits for certain roles within the Big battles)
(Pictures of certain "jobs" will be posted as the information has been gathered)
The total amount of points one is able to obtain at the current point cap for Big Battles is 236, however, that doesn't mean you can spend every point in every skill. The trait system was built for the use of specific jobs within the BB's.
Engineer Trait allows one to build barricades, build and upgrade balista and catapults. It also provides Traps to be used against the enemy to help certain situations within the Big Battle, (or BB for short). Bear-traps, Trip-wires, and Caltrops are the 3 different types of Traps available to an Engineer within the BB.
Here is a picture for my Build-specific Tree on my main toon, Aziroth.
Aziroth's Build Spec
The points spent within the Vanguard trait line were only a means of a point dump to allow myself to max out the possible amount of points given. The points spent in the "run speed" vanguard trait is class specific to warden's for extra run speed, and can, or cannot be beneficial to other classes. The choice is yours in how you spend your points.
Here is a picture for my Trap-specific Tree on my main toon, Aziroth.
Aziroth's Trap Spec
Points spent in this tree were mainly focused up getting the Trap Potency trait, as well and the Trap Trigger Count trait. This build was specifically designed for a "Bear-trap build" for specific quests within the various BB's. This specific setup allows you to place up to 4 traps on the battlefield at once, bear-traps being most effective.
Officers allow the ability to buff the Rohirrim Soldiers on the battlefield. When you right click on a Commander that has the words "Awaiting Orders" under its name, it will give you the ability to select certain buffs on the UI menu, or select which stance the soldiers will stand in, whether that be 1-handed, 1-handed/shield, or 2-handed stance. You may also provide orders to a specific monster to be focused upon and killed when they spawn on the battle field.
Aziroth's Officer Spec
Vanguards are used in certain roles to give an advantage to the team while fighting Bosses within the BB's. Vanguards use a system of Killing Streak to activate certain skills within the Vanguard menu. The Vanguard tree allows for certain buffs to be obtained at a % chance of receiving a "Killing Blow" on a monster. There are 8 buffs a Vanguard can have, however, only 2 may be equipped at a time. The max amount of Kill Streaks one can have is 20. after receiving a Killing Blow, a yellow tally mark will appear on the Vanguard UI bar and will do so till there are 20 yellow tally marks under the skills to be used. In order to use a skill, simply click on the skill above the tally marks. Certain skills require more kill Streaks in order to be used as payment, like skills require Power to be used.
