Setup for the WA+MB 15kdmg wtf thing?
Posted 26 January 2013 - 08:38 AM
I'm really into spiking and this might get me back to play my Guard again.

Although it's hard to tell what you're talking about, because even though I've been pvping and playing with builds since beta, I have no idea what "WA" is supposed to mean, and I can only assume that "MB" is the hammer's 2 skill.

Zerk orbs in rune slots or any other viable power/precision rune set.

was spec 20/25/0/20/5
Full Zerk gear/weap/jewels + rune of the pack + sigil of blood + omnomberry ghost.
My autoattack average damage (on crit):
GS: 2.2k and 3.5k for the 3rd
Sword: 2k and 1.3k of the 3rd (3x1.3=3.9k)
On a lowbie I did a 10.5k with my whirlol
With this setup I guess a good critted MB is also heavy
But in WvW you're very squishy :/ really fun thought...

That is what i threw together in about 5 minutes, might have even missed some more potential damage. I also have no idea how this would really translate, but I do know that you would be mostly useless a lot of the time.

if so, his build i think is highlighted and linked in the description of the first "Zealous Defender" video.
iirc, should be 30/0/30/5/5 with mix and match of gear which i think he details at the end of the video.
hope this helps!

What WA and MB stand for?
The MB is probably mighty blow and the WA is probably supposed to be WW meaning Whirling Wrath.

Jesus walking barefoot on fire, how fun is that?
9k MB 9k WW boom 18k AoE everyone dead.
I want that build so badly.
It could convince me to play Guard again.
I'm pretty sure I can get that health to at least 12k too.

Not saying its the best or better. Just seems to work really well for me.
I swap weapons almost every chance I get so im constantly using Mighty Blow or Whirling wraith. So with all the switching I stack might pretty high. Also due to high crit chance, im also getting might stacks from the traits. Plus those Might Stacks heal me due to AH.
I prefer Shelter for my heal. While the healing is less, since this build revolves around JI'ing into large groups and doing massive AoE damage, the 2 seconds of shielding from Shelter saves me from more damage than extra healing from Signet would heal for.
Stability for large fights with lots of CC and for downing/rezzing. I took Retreat for escaping.
Basic rotation is to JI in. Hit Ring of Warding, if single target then Banish + Mighty Blow, (lots of targets ditch banish and just go straight in Mighty Blow, switch to greatsword, symbol of wraith, binding blade, whirling wraith, pop all my virtues, hit retreat, and start running away. If im taking alot of pressure then go for shelter, if still more pressure then pop Elite (renewed focus). And then as a last resort, pick an enemy in the back, re hit JI and run the other way.
Yes this is still a glass cannon build. But with all the vigor, ways of being immune to damage for time, and the fact that most players cant survive 2 Mightly Blows and a Whirling Blade with your 6-10 stacks of might, you can actually survive alot. That which you cant survive you can usually escape.

And I can get near about the same damage output, better crit chance, little less crit damage, etc. with a 0/15/30/20/5 glass cannon build (zerker armor, weapons, and valkyrie accessories) unbuffed. I use this to run dungeons, PvE and WvW.
Does make me wonder what she would do if I went all zerker with valkyrie weaps - I am not sold on the use of Scholar runes here though.

i'm gonna give the scholar runes a shot. currently running hoelbrak x3 and fire x3 (i don't RP but i like having concepts for my characters and while i'm a Norn, this one's ducked in a mix of cultural armor, destroyer GS and magmaton hammer lol so the hoelbrak an fire runes seemed to "fit" more). though unsure of how big a difference scholars will make. the 10% extra dmg seems nice as well, however, seems to mainly help with the initial burst.
@Red_Falcon - that's a nice twist to the build. though it makes sense. you can definitely stay in the fight longer and still do massive dmg. will try that instead when i get on next. i felt 30/x/30/x/x was a bit too squishy fo rmy taste. though might have just needed more practice ; ))
