Tips and Strategies

Left: who heals whom; right: the classic circle of life

The constructs were devised to be the embodiment of the concept behind the game, Rock, Paper, Scissors. Along with this, the constructs were made to showcase the Mystic’s stasis ability.

In the image above, the left circle shows which construct heals which, and the right circle likens them to the elements that they each represent in Rock, Paper, Scissors, along with what beats what. The way constructs heal can be thought of as each element healing the element that dominates it–for example, since Rock loses to Paper, the Rock Construct heals the Wood Construct.

The classical way to destroy a construct group is to use a Mystic’s stasis ability against one of the constructs, and then take them down piece-by-piece following the left circle in the image above. Stasis disables a construct’s ability to heal its dominant, thus breaking the healing circle and exposing their vulnerability. While you can use this method by stasising any one or even two constructs, generally, the best construct to stasis is the Rock Construct, due to it serving as the anchor for the other two constructs. When a construct group’s Rock Construct is killed, the other constructs will no longer swirl, instead wandering in search of another Rock Construct to protect. There is no limit to how many Wood or Steel Constructs circle a single Rock Construct.

While using stasis was the intended method for killing constructs, it is not actually a requirement. The constructs are not as invulnerable as the Rock Construct claims them to be. If the player(s) can do enough damage to an individual construct in less than one second (the cooldown on healing for constructs), then the player(s) can take down a construct group without the aid of a Mystic.

The constructs are great for necromancers to heal on. They are easy to ignore, and are the most common god in the godlands due to everyone ignoring them.

For over a year, the taunt of the constructs was “We are impervious to non-mystic attacks!” This was eventually removed due to constructs spamming the chat.

Alternatively, just eliminate the constructs in order from Wood->Rock->Steel to cut off their healing.

Trivia

Prior to Exalt Version 1.3.0.0, the Rock Construct’s sprite was as shown below:
Old Rock Construct

Prior to Exalt Version 1.3.0.0, they used to heal Wood Constructs and did not drop The Machine. They were also the only Construct able to give XP, giving a higher 390 XP.
