Human, Prescient Bard, MC Warlord, Karmic Shaper, Legendary Sovereign
Let's Get Ready to Ruuuuuummmmmmmbbbbbble !
Michael Buffer brings the noise. He’s not here to do the monster punching, he’s here to buff you up and make you look good!
Utilizing Virtue of Prescience and Prescient Aid, Michael Buffer will be delivering hefty buffs (+6) to allies who miss in his presence. Being that Michael Buffer rolls with the Vistani crowd, he's gonna be utilizing this buff feature 3 times a day!
Guiding Strike At Will allows Michael Buffer to deliver a -2 to a defense of his choice.
Rhyme of the Blood Seeking Blade: a serious defensive de-buff on the Interrupt if your ally misses.
Insightful Riposte: Hey Michael Buffer needs to self buff too once in a while!
Balance of Fortune: Roll a 1d6 and add it to an allies attack against a target until Michael Buffer's EONT.
Sword of the Sovereign: When Michael Buffer Crits (and yes he can auto crit!) or reduces an enemy to 0 all allies in 1 burst 10 gain temp HP's and a whopping +9 to basic attacks and At Wills until the end of the encounter! Now that's a Daily.
Reverberating Shot/Sword of Kings: This is Michael Buffer's big gun. With the Legendary Sovereign capstone power Sword of Kings, as long as Michael Buffer hits a target, Reverberating Shot is not expended and each ally within 5 squares of the target gets either a +7 to Attack or AC until the EONT. As long as Michael Buffer doesn't miss the target, Reverberating Shot is not expended! Rinse, repeat, profit!
Vicious Mockery: At Will -2 to attack until EONT.
Psychic Lock: Vicious Mockery has the psychic keyword. That's -4.
Balance of Fortune: Roll a 1d6 and subtract it from the targets attack until Michael Buffer's EONT.
In addition to the above goodies Michael Buffer has bad guy neutering tactics like the Karmic Shaper Daily End of Luck which makes the target roll a 1 (save ends) on all it's attacks, and Whispers of the Dream King which knocks the poor sucker Unconscious (save ends). Remember that auto crit part?
Then there's the vicious Arrow of Destiny which turns all allies' normal hits into crits (save ends).
To make sure these nasty conditions stick, Michael Buffer's Virtuoso of Misfortune (-5 to all saves (save ends)), and Sharp Retort (an Encounter Immediate Interrupt -7 save penalty) is sure to bend the odds in his favor.
Combine all this with excellent healing which grants saving throws, and Attack Enabling each time Michael Buffer uses his Virtue of Prescience and you have yourself a sure fire recipe for Team Hero win!
