Necro or Warrior, You decide!
Posted 28 February 2013 - 09:36 PM
So if It was to be a Warrior it would be a Charr w/ Hammer + Rifle/LB
If it was to be a Necro it would be a Sylvari who would focus on Life Siphon ect.
Both of these would be used in any/every aspect of GW2.
Please share you ideas and suggestions, thanks!

Now that's out of the way, I'd like to tell you that if you really want to get the best out of your warrior, don't focus solely on 2 weapon sets. Warriors are weapon masters and are definitely the most fun when you play around with it. Mine, for instance, currently have a GS, two axes, a rifle, a sword, a shield, and a longbow. I alternate between them depending on my mood and the build I wanna go with. That's just my experience.
But Necromancer is something else. It's a tough profession to play effectively, but when you got it down you got one hell of a fun time ahead of you. I love running around with D/D and a staff just to mess things up, and I was one of the few who liked to use axe/focus in dungeons and such as a vulnerability/Death Shroud build (which is even more awesome now that Spinal Shivers and Rending Claws have been boosted).
I'd probably say go Necromancer. Necromancer's are awesome.

The Warrior is more about being able to keep yourself alive as you hack and slash away.
Don't get me wrong there is an art to being able to continually pressure groups while not dying but I definitely have more fun playing my necro. Plus you can really screw with people in wVw by pulling them off walls and stripping them of all their boons

Also test out a Charr first. A max size Charr appears to move slow but it's moving like normal. If that bugs you, you can always use a warhorn and signet to keep IMS 100% of the time. Or just make the Charr smaller and it won't feel as slow. Imo a Charr Warrior is best as freaking huge as possible.
That and the animation of a Charr swinging a hammer is pretty badass.

each makes for a very different playstyle, quite hard to compare or choose between..
But then again im a selfconfessed altoholic, i currently run 19 characters.

I also have an engineer as my main, so I can tell you from the getgo that you will like the warrior for how different it is in terms of combat and how easy it is, but you'll never like it as much as your tinkering toon. I have a warrior recently exotic kitted, I enjoy.the easy time I have in tagging mobs in Orr for loot, but still prefer my engineer for fractals, and my engineer for dungeons.

Having both professions at Max level on my account does not make me an expert but I must ask the same thing.
The idea the warrior isn't as "hard" gives me a soft chuckle. But I think it is because for what I do most of the time it is really very contextual for which profession faces the greater challenge.
It would be very hard to list all the nuances but they are just two really different animals. I enjoy having both on the account. It is okay to like one more than the other.
But the idea either is a faceroll class (without giving context) is just very silly. For the content I play they both matter and they both have to be played well for maximum effectiveness.

I agree if anything I found necro was massively over powered leveling up if anything. Biggest challenge I found was seeing how many mobs I could get together to AoE. Only thing challenging other then that was a big world boss and trying to get damage in, with everyone elses dots.
