Mad props, Dragonborn's fat!
Halflings are seriously underrated. It's like lugging around a mini-GG altar XD Thank god the Trisword got nerfed (shudders while remembering).
I'm sure there's math that proves that this strat is really stupid, possibly the most stupid way of using knockback - knockback allows you to hit two guys at once and tank the guy with lower damage in order to hit a guy with higer damage, effectively only tanking one hit and dispensing two. This way you're tanking two hits (regular + knockback) in order to dispense two hits, you're tanking the guy who does more damage X2, and it only really works because Rex is doing crazy damage. It's exactly the oposite of sensible!
Seeing how it works like mad, and seeing how you can (and I'm pretty sure on this) make this work with any class (via Taurog / Namtar's Ward shennanigans), what it sayes to me is that Monks and Warlords are broken beyond belief because they don't in fact need Taurog shennanigans (or indeed any shennanigans) to pull it off. Not that anyone had any illusions about those two.
Also, the fact that you can tank a frenzied Rex knockback hits with a halfling (with a monk, but w/e) on a fully explored map with only CP as fuel tells me that the little buggers are way more powerful than forum chatter would suggest. Not that I didn't know this, but there's got to be another place where this can be put to good use.
Anywho - knockback, unfair advantage even when it's on the other guy XD

Indeed, we are like benevolent gods (of an obscure passtime, but wth XD) unto men. Also, the horse has plenty of life in it - someone has to test how this works out using a fat ole minotaur in shifting passages, and we really ought to have lvl1 bosskills via this method rolling in at some point. Oh, and bum a proper troll boss off the devs, one with knockback, because being able to do this on the fly would be hilarious.
Oh, and if anyone else has trickshot suggestions like this one, do post, please! I fail at being a concise, polite, likeable and modest human being, but I'm good at perforiming entertaining digital stunts for everyone's enjoyment ^^
