After reading some posts here and other forums, i decided to start this topic as i am really in a need of some advices from players that know what farming DE's in Orr (Penitent Path) means.
In short, what i noticed there while farming was that:
1. You need to do a "significant" amount of damage on as many mobs as you can, in order to get credit and drops.
2.You need hard hiting and fast AOE skills to be able to do the required damage in about, 1-2 secs.
3.You need to be able to use AOE in a way that alows you to hit those fast traveling zergs of mobs, so i am woried about skills that are AOE ground targeted.
Now, i have a 80 Ranger(traps+axe\torch, longbow) and 80 Warrior( dual axes, sometimes tried longbow too).
Both with MF gear, MF jewelry+MF food.
What i noticed while farming rares: When there are many other players, AOE spaming the mass mobs, with may traps and axe as ranger or with my dual axes as warrior, i kinda have a hard time doing the damage needed to get credit on kills and drops.
I also noticed that Ele's and Guardians seems to have an easier time doing this .
My main interest in this post is to get advises for this very 2 questions:
1. Can you write here some tips to get better in getting credit for kils with my ranger\warr farming DE's?
2. Can some 80, experienced in Orr DE's farming, Ele's and Guardians make a comparison so i can choose between this 2 classes?
More exactly, do Guardians have comparable AOE possibilities both in damage as in short cd time and number of skills at their disposal, compared to an Ele?
Initially i wanted to make an Ele, strictly for Orr farming DE's, as i have a feeling that every time ele's are coming, i start lossing credit for my kilss.
I also saw that happens when Guardian come too:), so i thought somehow this 2 classes can be better for farming mass mobs.
I rread somwhere in this forums, that Guardian, in melee (GS+sword\torch) are in fact maybe a better Ele...but dunno, that would be a bit weird...
Anyway, please write what do u think about Ele's\Guardians aoe farming and help me choose one of them. I am a bit leaning to guardian as is better in lvling up and surviving, but again, if Ele's can be better in Orr DE's farming, i'll choose Ele.
If you think other classes can be an option beside ele\guardian for better AOE Orr farm, please post them too.
Thank You all and please excuse my terrible english.
