Challenge: PvE Boon Removal
Posted 12 May 2013 - 02:56 AM
Have you EVER seen a boon on an enemy and used a skill to remove that boon, because that was more efficient than just landing another damaging ability?

Off the top of my head, dredge. Always dredge. I always strip protection off of dredge because you just cannot kill them fast enough. Goddamn I hate dredge.

dredge fractal - remove protection on dredge trash and especially 1st boss,
underwater fractal - remove upto 25 stacks of might from jellyfish final boss
ascalon fractal - remove upto 25 stacks of might from monks
ascalon fractal - remove might stacks from final boss
uncategorized fractal - remove protection from ettin (also gets 5xmight and fury iirc).
There are more, but basically vs a boss whenever you have the chance to take away key boons like protection/regen it allows your team to dps more effectively. And as a mesmer to be able to use arcane theivery to remove a number of might stacks and give them to your team via signet of inspiration is handy.

Don't kno what teams you play with but I can definitely say you wont unless your party sucks(i.e not running a balanced team with at least 1 person who can give regen/heals). I always remove them thought, on my mesmer, I run sword and disenchanters. But if I'm on my ele or guard and we don't have a mesmer, or we got an ele or guard, or a engi for that matter, it doesn't really matter. You can all just stay on boss and occasionally heal yourself as you see fit. But then again I feel like I'm the only person in the groups I pug who seem to realize that support is good, going a guardian for damage or never going water on an ele is stupidity in itself. It's like in GW1 when a monk comes and tell you he can't(more like wont) heal, because he's DPS... /uninstall
Tho, if you DON'T have someone supporting in your team then I definitely agree that it can be tough.

Anyway, yes, I will make a conscious attempt to remove boons from certain enemies. Dredge are annoying as crap, so I'll strip theirs as much as possible. The CoE/HOTW bosses mentioned above. Any enemy that has any boon that makes things annoying (protection, regen, retaliation are the big ones - might if it gets over a certain amount).
