#2052487 Can we expect a nerf to Dagger Autoattack?

Posted Korra on 30 October 2012 - 02:02 PM

Lately i´ve been trying MH sword in WvW after using D/D for over 2000 kills, Sword is great, nice mobility and damage.

Now the issue comes here, after trying WvW sword MH i realised how terribly OP dagger autoattack is, the damage is way over the clouds considering what attack speed it has, my lotus strike was hitting for 7k easy.

It is know by every decent thief out there that d/d is way too OP and that makes every single player  go "hUEhuEHuEHu" arround and feel like a boss because they just need 2 autoattack chains to pwn a elementalist.

Imo D autoattack needs a slight nerf, maybe then some thiefs would be able to look past that set and start making the thief class look like we actually need any skill to do great, because right now, donesn´t matter how good player you are, if you are using d/d you will always be seen like a faceroll nab.

Also HS damage is more than enough to keep the MH D as a superb set.

So how do i counter a mesmer?

Depends on your class and the Mesmer's build. General stuff that applies to any class if they're a shatter or phantasm build is this: AOE damage - put pressure on them while keeping their clones down. If you see clones come running at you, dodge away and make sure they die before they reach you. Dodge a phantasm's first attack and kill it before it attacks again, they can easily hit for 4k per attack round. If the mesmer pulls out his sword/pistol, he's probably going to stun you with the pistol ability then use the immobilize/teleport clone > blurred frenzy + shatter on you. It's a burst combo that is nullified by a stunbreak or stability and GTFO or evasion/dmg absorb ability. If they hold their hand up in the air for a stupid long cast time, interrupt it. It's MOA (best way to get accustomed to the animation is to make a mesmer, go to the mists and cast it a few times). If they stealth, expect them to moa you while stealthed and be ready to LOS them until it's down. The main counter to moa is a combination of LOS and dodge rolls to avoid being CC'd.

Then for your build, you need things that allow you to play the above counters: AOE damage, stunbreaks, gap opener of any kind, condition removals are a plus for confusion.

#1987683 [Build] The Invincible Berserker - it's back.

Posted Newsinz on 02 October 2012 - 10:17 PM

Honestly, this thread kind of shows that there are many elitest folks playing this game.  OP Posted a build and the first post was a passive aggresive "you have no idea what you're talking about" post.

Then the second Post was "I dont want to kill your post but..." Personally this guy/girl lost any validity in the first sentence.  Even if the second part of his/her post was giving feedback and giving a personal opinion.  The first part was again Passive Aggresive.

Then Fizzgig jumps in and gives some constructive feedback, but then talks about how he/she was rude about not taking constructive critisim.  Really?  Where was any of the first 2 posts after the OP's orginal post constructive?  Instead they came in acting like he/she was and idiot?  OP defended with the same sort of mentality he/she was shown.  While he/she could have ignored it and moved on.  When you attack someones idea in this case a build of course there is going to be some poking and proding.

MyOne Started off with "Sorry Bro"  Again in this context it was (or at least from the context I was reading) a "Dont act like you know everything because I know more then you do." type of comment.

This entire thread was fail from the moment he/she hit "Post"

To the OP: thanks for sharing the build.  If it works for you great, Im sure someone will ignore all other crap and give it a try and they will either like it.  Or they wont.  Hopefully they are mature enough to come on the forums and give you real constructive feedback.

It was a good run. It was definitely worth $60.00 just like I'd say Diablo III also was. It was definitely worth the 300+ hours or so that I got from it.

The game was officially released on August 28th. That's 542 hours 23 mins before the time of your post. You have played 300+ hours. That means you have spent more than 55% of the total available time in your life playing this game since launch. Hoping you had at least 6 hours of daily sleep, you ended up playing nearly 75% of the every waking hour of your life in last 3 weeks or so.

I think the game got bored of you and decided not to offer you any more fun till you take some rest and help yourself in the process.

I say that jokingly. But, in all honesty, the impact of sitting on your butt 75% of the day will take heavy toll on your body. It does not matter how old you are. You will have serious issues with your health if you don't take a break now.

#1854138 Kudos to Anet for taking care of undesirable players.

Posted zwei2stein on 31 August 2012 - 11:08 AM

In first week of game, developers did one very brave thing: They went ahead and slapped people hard for misbehaving:

* Name bans
* Hate speech bans (with hilariously outed "innocent people")
* Botting bans
* Respawning DE exploit rollbacks and bans.
* Exploits like karma vendor bans.

Let me be the one to say loudly: Good job. You just set very high standard. And made sure people listen because 3 day ban is very harsh right after start. Hopefully this will make anyone think thrice before doing something stupid.

Thumbs up.

I have an idea to pitch to the good folks at ANet.  There is a gray area where you don't essentially rob the customer of $60 for exploiting a programming mistake you made.  Between 72 hour suspensions and account termination; you could just wipe their accounts like you did for Betas and pre-launch.
Save termination for repeated racism in spite of warnings and illegal activity.  72 hours for profanity, bad language, and taking light advantage of an exploit.

Do account-wipes for people who do massive exploitation.  The best part about that idea, is the punishment fits the crime.  You take the items out of their account, and wipe their progress.  They learn the lesson and you haven't essentially punished the customer for a mistake your developers made.

Of course if they go right back and do it again ban them.  This heavy hand with banning...I understand it when it comes to gold traders.  A zero tolerance policy and vigilance is a great way to stop it before it starts.  Yet some of the other bans I've been hearing about...it's making honest players nervous and an environment of oppression and fear is not going to nurture the type of community you want.

They decided to cheat, exploit, to gain more money and a advantage over others when they were not supposed to. They deserve to be permanantly banned.

#1843353 Dungeons ridiculous difficulty.

Posted kupp on 29 August 2012 - 08:17 PM

I think they did it right by upping the difficulty on the dungeons, they're not supposed to be your everyday zerg fest like the ones you see walking around Queensdale. You're supposed to be damn good at the game, knowing how to use your bar correctly, positioning, evasion and coordination + synergy with your team. If you've played GW1 none of this is a surprise, hell I was doing DoA with heroes only and it was only doable with top-notch play. I'm glad I see this returning to GW2, most people that didn't get that far or are just used to the holy trinity are gonna have to up their game and deal with it, becausing dumbing down the dungeons aren't the way to go. Players should improve and let go of old/bad habits.

The story in this game is absolutely terrible. Its a shame because this world has so much potential. Everything to the combat, artwork, lvling its all really done nicely. However the effect the very bad story has on gameplay is huge. A good story is necessary for the gamer to feel purpose in what there doing. I Often find it difficult to find a reason to why I am doing something because most of the time im just mindlessly killing things or following events either not caring or not understand whats going on.

My only other complaint would be is that I wish you had multiple weapon skills you could swap out for each weapon in the same fashion as utility. It could really spice up the staleness of using the same weapon over n over again.

this is just my analysis from playing the game most of yesterday and today.

I just find it dissapointing that with all that talent in other areas, the story area part of the game seems to be the most ignored by the developers. when it is often the most important aspect of the game.

"The Story"

Which? There are dozens and I like mine quite a bit.

#1821842 PvE Kind of Boring?

Posted Xeraze on 26 August 2012 - 07:43 AM

View PostInfiniteRetro, on 26 August 2012 - 07:30 AM, said:

without being the community idiot here i'll bring in WoW to use as my example. WoW's questing used to be dull and boring. there literally was no innovation. when Wrath of the Lich King hit, they really stepped their game up and made questing awesome. say you had to kill an elite, well now you may have to mount a giant to go take it down. or npcs would spawn to go with you.

so far the DE's are taking a while to complete. i'll be standing there waiting for the next 'wave' to defend. in the betas it was all sped up, now im wishing it actually was to those speeds. alot of the time to even now im finding dead areas for DE's.

renown hearts are all sussed out. they basically give you 4 or 5 objectives for you to pick and choose. what im finding though, if theres players, you're still fighting for the things its asking (pick up water pail and put out fire etc). the problem is it also takes quite a while to simply fill up that bar. i just want to get through it, theres nothing different to anything else.

and lastly, going back to DE's, if there is a big populace in the area, its just a zerg fest. we're all shooting in the same direction. theres no teamwork, hell i did a combo field but that was cos i dropped my ring of fire in the middle of a pyrotechnics show and it just happened.

with standard questing, you can have a near infinite amount of possibilities because the game then can shift and change and do anything it wants. Dynamic events are made on the basis that anyone can join in, BUT in saying that, means you also cant simply just mount up on a massive giant and go take down a huge world boss.

my thoughts so far.
That's good that's good...how many times will ppl beat this dead horse? If you prefer WoW just go back, I hear they have pandas incoming. GW is awesome and you cannot review it as boring by only getting to lvl 10. There is also PvP which is where your 'teamwork combos' really start to have effect. Why don't you try another class if you feel bored? Come and tell us it's a zergfest once your 60+ and doing dungeons.

Thank you, OP, for posting this. It's cool to know how appreciative the GW2 community is, and the overflow cash going to charity likely wouldn't have happened otherwise.

I found this on the Guild Wars 2 subreddit and have already donated, I thought I should share it here so that if anybody else wanted to say thank you in this manner they could :)


The Goal has been surpassed

Since there were questions about it (and this info is available in my first link above, the cupcakes are custom made from http://www.trophycupcakes.com/

The money was to cover the cupcakes & the cost of the courier

Side note: prices aren't cheap in Seattle the cost of living is pretty high

Arena Net have responded asking that the remaining amount be donated to childs Play.

From the thread on reddit


We've been chatting with the cupcake folks and ArenaNet to work out the final details. We are going to be getting equal amounts of all the cupcakes mentioned here: http://www.trophycup...avorsMonday.htm
