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 the constructs), then the player(s) can take down a construct group without the aid of a Mystic.

Of course, this has all been turned on its head by Exalt Version, which removed its ability to be healed by the Steel Construct. Simply defeat this one first to cut off the chain of healing.
