I played Cornac Cursed to Reknor on Insane and it wasn't very good. It's not a meme build it's just that regular Cornac Cursed itself is a silly meme that keeps getting pushed despite being bad. You don't even want Rampage before level 10 so the only major benefit is you level faster and have an extra Infusion until level 36. Fungus is fine but it doesn't give as great value for your Regeneration Infusion as Ogre racials do. Even if I were to take Antimagic just for Fungus, Cornac is still way worse than Thalore and Dwarf which both have excellent defensive racials.

Edit: Also Antimagic sucks because it locks you out of amazing items like Dethbyld, Black Maul, Black Plate, Aetherwalk, etc plus a bunch of nice item egos.

Thanks, that explains it better. Now I can see that you indeed used a bunch of arcane powered items. And I don't have much experience to compare Thalore/Dwarg with Fungus, but quite agree that Ogre Racials benefit you more, since they boost HPT and not just uptime.

BTW, what about getting sleep from Escort? With high enough mind power you can easily apply it to most enemies, if you want to use dreamwalk offensively. Not sure how useful it is for escapes at low levels, since precision is low.


EDIT: And Nature's Touch IMO is pretty bad on Cursed, because you have no way to decrease your equilibrium and heal is quite small in Early game and Irrelevant in late game. Better than non-betrayal Seer talents though, since you don't want to have mana bar vs antimagic. I'd much rather get conversion, but it's still not that great since heal is quite small and it spends a turn. At least it gives you hate in addition to healing. IMO the best escorts in order of importance: Psiblades > Track > Chant > Dreamwalk/Disarm to taste > Vitality > Extra points in Psiblades > Conversion/Nature's Touch > Extra levels in Chant > Device Mastery >Extra Points on Vitality/Unflinching Resolve? Correct me if I'm wrong.

Same escort priorities as usual. Dream Walk first then if you get another it's up to you.

Nature's Touch is good because it's a heal that scales with a power you have a non-negligible amount of. It's very good when you need a burst heal and your other stuff is on cooldown. EQ cost is irrelevant since you can just carry a totem to reduce it and you won't use it more than 7 times in a single fight. It's pointless to rank escorts since you can't choose them but Disarm, Dream Walk, and Chant of Fortitude are obviously the best escort talents for this class.
