It's never been all that useful since HP was the only thing worth investing in at the time it was written, but it's even less so now that the formulas are all vastly different.

Hello All -

Has anyone attempted to figure the new formula?
Is there a new fort fighter build guide?

Regards,

Switched hiding with stamina and than they replaced stamina with setting traps.

For allrounded ff(ff attack/defense) duelers/workers/ some soldiers, pure dex/leadership/hiding seems way to go.(set hiding same as dexterity)

All rounded build can also be dex+mobility.


For tanks Pure mobility/setting traps/leadership/hp is way to go if you have a good resistance gear(no need for hp if using dwd set and use same concept as dex build if so)(I'd recommend for adventurers too, dancing against bullets is better than letting someone else die+ it's more effective)

Specialized
It would be for either attack(mobility/leadership+maybe hp), defense(dex/leadership+maybe hp) or just pure damage(pure leadership)

The new FF formula is quite simple depending on the size of the fort:

Check the yardage, survey the elevation changes and path to the flag, take note of the hazards, call the beer cart girls over for a cold beverage, enjoy the moment, reach into the bag and pull out your club of choice, and then just let it rip. Sometimes you wind up with a par 3, sometimes you Bogey, sometimes you have to wrestle a gator to get your ball back.

Drive for show, Putt for dough....

In a nut shell: Pure FFing duelers should invest in leadership/charisma and be as low HP as possible (1590) and wear Amish. All other types should invest in HP and wear Hombre.

Hombre is not catchall. Pizarro's gear has considerably greater stats. With that, a worker could stand on the WT and dodge many, many shots. I would always prefer a greater chance to dodging versus taking damage, with all the powerful duellers out there

When are you going to update this to reflect the changes like the skills for stamina does not apply any more, now Traps does and hiding has changed

When are you going to update this ...
"When"? Or "If"? ;)
But I seriously doubt that the player who posted this is still active :) This post is almost 9 years old, it can definitely be ignored, too much has changed since then.
But if some fine soul would find time to write their own guide, that would be something! Do it, Joe, I know you want to! :p ;)
