Ruby Lotusblossum's Elite Sunspear
Ruby Lotusblossum 
This is the name by which i am primarily known. 90% of the time when i am participating in guild or ally chat, i am on this character. i just can't seem to stay away!
Ruby has reached Kind of a Big Deal (1).
Ruby is the second character i created when i took over my Husband's second account (Mrs Kuan being the first). She is Canthan in origin. She completed the campaigns backwards; Nf, then Factions, and finally when Hm came out, she had a reason to finish Prophecies. Ruby has completed GW:EN, and is currently assisting other guildies in doing the same.
i created Ruby with the fire nuker persona in mind; i am an Aries (Mars is my ruling planet) and highly drawn to the fire element. Both the ruby and the lotus are associated with fire in the oriental systems. Ruby's favorite color is red! ><
Ruby has capped all of the NF elites for all professions. She is working on completing the other 2 campaigns. Her preferred ele elites are
Mind Blast and Sandstorm. Glyph of Renewal is Ruby's newest favorite.
PvE Skill Bars
This is the current skill bar i am using in GW:EN. It varies depending upon the area, which heros accompany us, if i am playing alone, etc.
When I do get to play fire nuker, i use something like this:
In fire heavy areas, i combine this build with my pyromancer armor:
PvP Skill Bars
New AB build i've been testing (workin' pretty well, too, and lotsa fun):
Old AB (tested) standby:
i use Geo Armor when running the earth builds (generally speaking). The combined extra armor lvl and damage reduction from Stone Striker and Mantra of Earth allow me to get up front in the fight and take much more damage than most eles. With Ward Against Elements, i gain even more armor (warrior lvl).
my Pyromancer set is for areas with high fire damage. i tend to run a water build with it.
For all other builds, its the Radiant Armor set.
A Superior rune on my headpiece (to correspond with the associated element), Major Rune of Vigor, Superior Rune of Energy Storage, and a Rune of Recovery on my gloves. There is nothing an ele hates more than being dazed. i only began using the recovery a month or so ago, but i can see the difference. Let's face it, even hero monks can't remove all conditions, all of the time!
For storage sake, Ruby only carries 4 Mini Pets. Her first mini was a Mini Temple Guardian given to me by my Husband. Then, during my 30th birthday party at our guild hall, Ruby got a Mini Hydra. Through a lot of mapping, collecting, and a Sorrow's Furnace run, Ruby was able to aquire a Black Moa Chick. I am also pleased that Ruby has very own Miniature Ceratadon; very appropriate, since the triceratops has always been my favorite dinosaur ("three horns only play with other three horns!"). Very recently, Mars gave Ruby a Miniature Fire Imp as a token of affection. Awwwww, Teh Cuteness! ;p
Thanks to the recent game update, Ruby's minatures have been dedicated in her Hall of Monuments.
