First gw2 vid. i tried to keep the sub 80’s out as much as possible.

i run gs/rifle




specs used in the video
20/20/0/0/30 – http://www.guildhead...FnmGG9MxVsVkcak
20/0/30/0/20 – http://www.guildhead...FnmG0x0GVsMRbca
0/0/0/0/0

im fully geared in glass cannon exotics and run divinity as my rune set.

reason why i deleted my ranger was due to the fact i like playing high ST burst rdps, the ranger just doesn’t offer it. warhammer i played a sorc, rift i was a mage, swtor i rocked a commando ect.. this is also the first mmo where im playing a primarily mdps as a main.

ranger was 350+h before deleted
warrior is currently 460+
total /age is over 960h


comment/like/sub/! and enjoy the vid.

If anyone want a summary of the video, he runs into people in WvW that take the place of tasty snacks in about 2 seconds. Often in groups as they sacrifice themselves to Khorne.

Seriously though that build looks equally as fun to play as it is to watch. I'm stuck between buying full berserker or knights after finishing my legendary in the next month or two... This has grabbed my attention, lol

I liked the video a lot, this is why I don't run glass cannon builds on my ele, i like eating the burst then killing them.

Good stuff.

How do the play styles differ when you're playing the glass cannon vs the defensive build?

:( shelved ranger here moving my current 60 ranger opps I mean warrior up the ladder. Night and day difference comming from rangers pitiful damage. Pets suppost to be a vital threat but I think you got hit by their pets in vids maybe three times while you contanly hit for the beat down with way more hp and armor than the poor old rangers. Sad I really had high hopes for my ranger. I still dont think I could hit delete on him tho, They have to fix the class at some point. Plz mr santa clause

lol awesome vid, amazing amounts of damage you got there, I tried the glass cannon thing once, found it fun, but was never comfortable without at least some defense

Golly, you would have been so annoyed if you deleted your ranger, then found that fraps wasn't running...

the play styles don't differ to much, you have to be more aware when your vollying if you are fighting multiple people or against rangers/necros so their pets don't take the dmg for them. you also will be more durable in 1vX situations.

yeah lmao, i did so many takes of it and not going though with the full delete option just for that reason, untill i was 100% sure it was running and even its always in your mind i hope it fraps'd

thx, and i think alot of warrior underestimate how strong the rifle can be other then just to line up a KS, volly,snare and the KB are solid to open a fight with, as your closing the gap into melee range, and even if i don't get into melee range i have  rifle'd many people down.  usually frenzy+volly will make someone burn either a heal, 2 d/r's or a defencive cd. before the fight really starts.

Could you tell me the gear you're wearing? I guess it's full berseker since you said you're glass cannon geared, but I would like to know it for sure :)

brilliant vid mate, question ere, when do you use your hundred blades since you don't have bolas or bull's charge to set it up?

edit : what sigils are you running?

i really don't 100b to often,  its situational for me to use it. reason why i don't bolas or bc is its to predictable imo, in a 1v1 that is, in group fights its fairly easy to land, sigils im using are hydromancy in my gs and blood lust on my rifle.

What about food and would you run your character differently if you were a part of a zerg? if yes, how? sry for the many questions, still in the learning process for WvW =P

not the backstab as much as removing the ability to stack stealth with pistol heartsekers, or blindpowder/and clusterbomb. The game intented for 3-4 secs of stealth not 9-12

its a longer fight against a bunker,  harder to if they are good, you have to capitalize on their mistakes, its a much closer fight if they can recover from my opening, but i will manage to kill them, i have lost to a few but it happens, its not like spvp when they will always have team support come in a few seconds, most of the time, they just keep running and get away, but when they commit to a fight you usually have enough constant dps to kill them before they slowly take you down.

for food i use bowls of curry butternut squash, and the master maintenance oil, it depends what you want to do in the zerg, i personally don't run in the zerg that much. i prefer small man/solo but i occasionally do zerg surf and i stay my normal spec's. if you want to dps its fine, just chill mid/backlines and kill the overextenders/front squishes.  but if you want to be in the front  line i'd suggest, bringing a shield and specing into toughness, possibly a hammer also, i hear there good when spec'd properly when you running zerg. can drop some good CC, but i don't have a lot of experience with that,
