In Topic: Warrior and PVP/WvW

Today, 03:18 PM

Warrior is rather overpowered in WvW and Spvp. Just grab your hammer & bow and try it out yourself. Anyhow, like Kattar said, youtube heroes don't always give the best picture about the game.

Why would they suppress power creep in the game just to re-add it? This makes no sense.
Yea but I think the point was that perhaps they never really cared about there being power creep and just wanted to change the way stats behave. Now you can have infusions that give say 10 ferocity while their previous system supported only full percentages. There is no tinfoil hatting here, their previous system was just clumsy and didn't work well with their idea of minimal vertical progression. E.g. before the change, rare and ascended zerker hats gave as much critical damage.

The small nerf crit damage received has no effect on anything so I don't see how the patch was about changing the meta. And besides, if they really wanted to just nerf the zerker setups, they could have made defiant give resistance against critical damage. This would have been a simple and effective change with lots of flexibility.

If you were to +1 your stats, power will always be the better option. Doing +ferocity over +power is stupid. Even before the patch power was the better stat, and now it's overwhelmingly better. 1 power just does so much more for your build than 1 ferocity does, so suggesting that streamlining crit damage was to make more infusions is kinda suspect to me.
Naturally, but the game doesn't generally let you stack just one stat. They could for example introduce infusions that instead of giving +15 to 1 stat, give +5 to 3 stats. This would be analogical to how gear currently functions.

As Poe already said, in GW2, skills are unlocked by simply killing three or four foes, and could be likened to the attribute points in GW1.  Where as the elites in GW1 could be compared to the traits in GW2.  Identical.
Didn't gw1 have some pvp skill pack for sale though? It unlocked all skills and everything a pvp player would need. I can't recall how expensive it was.

edit: I checked the price, seems they were 10€ per campaign. Pretty steep. Not much better than what we have here to be honest.

Anyhow, what pvp player really needs all the traits in the first place? Almost all of the new traits are utterly useless in pvp anyway. Of course I'm not a fan of these unlockables but it's all the same as long as there are only one or two competitive builds per profession.

Stealth is fine as long as it is PvE. PvP is harder to balance IMHO. This is not MGS or Splinter Cell, it is a niche mechanic and unless it is given to more profs, it is not an important issue( I'm not really familliar with PvP but it seems there's not really any qq post against rogue, so either they're underpowered, or there are more important issue).

You might want to visit the offical forums. It's full of roque qq threads. Some of them are reasonable, some not so much.

You would have explain why that would be considered a valid player class still as that veers towards antagonist NPC territory. I can see ways to bend it around but as presented, that is a villain concept rather than a hero concept and all players in either GWs are nominally heroes.
Ok make them ex-fallen guardians. Like guardians that once fell to the inquest, but when they saw how wrong their actions were, they turned into heroes. They are still forever tainted by the forbidden technology though. They are both tragical and controversial characters. Pretty good huh?
