ROYGBIV is the twelfth (and final) character to complete his journey in my Colour-Coded Sept Project. The project is based around having one character class respresent each of the seven colours of the rainbow, as well as the 4 additional colours available for equipment. Basically, all gear must adhere to the chosen colour of the character, as well as skills where possible.

A bit different this time, as Roy is actually an amalgamation of all the colours. So instead of having a solid colour to base his gear and skills around, he had to use one colour per gear slot (plus a charm, as you'll see below) and try to cram all 11 colours into his skills as well. This left me with basically one option for build; Zookeeper/Overlord.

If you want to read more about the 'why' of his gear/skill choices, you can do so here in his intro post. For now, let's stick to his stats.

Journey
I won't bother you with any gameplay notes here, as they are in the sept thread in full. If you want to read about his adventure and/or look at some of his gameplay screenshots, here are some links to his journey:

Other Notes and Final Thoughts

- Extremely easy character. Such a big army provides ample coverage for mistakes, and enough power to make it through anything.

- I had next to no use for Revives, but it gave me something to do while the army fought for me.

- Would really have like teleport to re-position quickly and help the Revives keep up, but it didn't really feel lackluster without it.

- Even though it's quite a cookie-cutter build, it was very fun and a nice relaxing and satisfying way to end the project.

Thanks as always for reading!
