#2307631 Why Healing Power Sucks, By WoodenPotato's (also bad mob design)

Posted Epitaph_Blade on 18 March 2014 - 02:43 AM

Very short.

I think that if Anet made it so, instead of everyone being able to heal themselves, to not need a dedicated healer, they made everyone being able to dish enough damage, to not need dedicated DPSers, we could have more build diversity on PvE. Control, healing, tanking, etc. Would be viable, because damage will be granted, and then if they made content around that idea, is far more easier to balance around different defensive perks, than to contrast defense with offense.

why does the dodge make you invulnerable in the first place?
shouldn't it just remove you very fast from the area of danger?
if you are in AOE that you cant run out of it in time, you should dodge out so when the AOE hits you will be out of the frame, if a mob tries to swing you , you dodge back and get out of its hit, but why the dodge gives you invulnerability?
if you dodge in lava, should it really make you live?

I'm running full Healing Power build on my Guardian... I like it.

My name is Desild, and I approve this message!

Seriously, don't bend to peer pressure. There are many perks for being full CLERICS that most overlook. If you need a pick me up in damage, your best option is actually a secondary Knights set to combo with your CLERICS.

It gives you a better margin for error if you're not a dodging master, at least.

Pretty much.

Everything that guy said boiled down to "I don't like it" and "It's no good for what I do". Only he talked about it as if everyone is the same as him, having an army of well trained pet zerkers to run dungeons with and such.

#2313072 What GW2 does right

Anyway, the shared loot/nodes are still a huge point for me and an incredibly important one tbh - it actually helps foster a nicer community. When you roam around with the thought in the back of your head that you need to hurry up and be first to tag a mob or mine a node, then seeing someone else around makes you suspicious. "Is this person going to steal my mob? Should I now race that person because I was here first?". Seeing others around should be a fun part of an MMO, it shouldn't cause stress, irritation or worry. And it works too; though there are still people arguing about silly things in chat, most of the time people are much more laid back and helpful.
This only half works. Sometimes people don't get shared loot even when they validly contributed, I've seen this all the time on dragon chests. Also there is still contention, now caused by (1) racing others to the right zone instance to get access to a world event, where the penalty for not getting there before everyone else is that you have to wait it out in an overflow, and (2) racing others to keep up with the champ train and get a hit in on the next champ before it dies - getting stuck on a piece of scenery may mean the vital second lost, and because the champ scaling is so bad they die in a matter of seconds; champ farmers wait for no man. Champs and world events are the new resource nodes.

#2076204 Am I the only person that hates the great sword?

Posted chullster on 13 November 2012 - 10:52 AM

I would use a GS if the skills weren't so boring, sound effects so weak and skins for the weapon were so stupid looking (over-sized burger flippers for the most part), so no, you're not alone.

I use hammer and sword/shield combo for PvE and WvW. I could tell you why I prefer them, but why bother? people should pick stuff they like.

I'll leave GS to those with no aesthetic taste and/or the window licker part of the community.

PS. @Brand

Stop spamming your build in every thread, you're like some annoying commercial. Same goes for everyone else who makes a big long post with pretty pictures and explains which end of the weapon is the dangerous one, names it something silly then proceeds to spam all the threads attempting to become the next Sabway or something.

Just post the build in a thread, then maintain that thread.

#1964032 Combat Mode 1.0 released. ArenaNet response included

Posted Sabbathius on 24 September 2012 - 04:14 PM

The question I want an answer to is - will this get me banned? :)

As much as I like the idea of it, but this is the kind of thing that could easily be seen as a breach. I'd love to see a very clear and unambiguous yes or no. Not a maybe, or open to interpretation.

#1954759 "There is no content"

Posted kKagari on 21 September 2012 - 09:08 AM

So there are people on this forum who say GW2 lacks content/is boring etc. Lets get the small one out of the way first. If you don't enjoy GW2, thats ok. If you are finding it boring, that's ok too. For all intensive discussion purposes, GW2 can be the worst game to ever exist, taking the crown from E.T.. That's ok.

But now, apparently, there is a lack of content. Remember, this is different to 'I don't find the content fun'. There is also the exclamations that there is no new content, when the game has neared the end of its first month.

So I ask you this first; what is your /age. How much did you pay for the game? I paid the full 60 USD. The last game I paid 60USD for which lasted me over 30 hours was Dark Souls. It took me 30 hours to complete the game for the first time, and considerably less on subsequent playthrus. I clocked about 90 hours total in the end.

At the time of writing this, I have spent 110 hours in GW2. None of which was in AFK. I considered all 110 hours of that time spent, fun. But fun, is beside the point in this topic, just to reiterate. What I find fun doesn't equate to what others find fun. But I'm completing content in the game, designed by the developers. My map completion is 31% and I've peppered some of that play time in with PvP and dungeon runs.

I paid 60USD for this. Not a cent more. Which other 60USD AAA game have you played recently that offered more than 30 hours of game time on your first play through. I say 30 because a skillful player, unaided by others, only doing PvE content, will probably have hit 80 and slayed the final boss. Why has it suddenly become expected of Arenanet to churn out new content like it is a subscription MMO?

Then there are those who say 'I'm going back to WoW' like it is a threat to Arenanet or the forum community. I don't care as much as the next guy. Why can't you play both games at once? Do you not have OTHER 60USD games installed on your computer? Does playing WoW delete those games from your hard drive?

TL;DR: This is a 60USD game, you can probably count with one hand how many other 60USD games that have constant content updates for free, with content that can last over 50hrs. Regardless of how fun you find this game or not, it is not lacking content.

#1948993 I guess that's why it doesn't have a subscription.

Posted Stallarius on 19 September 2012 - 07:10 PM

Open up your in-game map.

Crystal Desert.  Isles of Janthir.  Maguuma Wastes.  Ring of Fire.  Far Shiverpeaks.  Strait of Malchor.

These, and several others I can't name off the top of my head, are all zones that are currently not open and available to us, all zones that will most likely have level 80 content and dungeons as Arena.Net continues to expand upon the game through content updates.

Perhaps if you didn't try to devour everything in the game within a week of its launch, like you were some kind of starving locust swarm, you wouldn't be complaining now of having nothing to do.

Clearly patience is a virtue lost on today's bitter and angry little gaming generation.

#1929683 The big "What armor is this?" thread

What vendor and are you saying the vendor has every single piece?

I put this set together the other day but had to travel all over hell and back to get the pieces.
Highest lvl piece is helm at like lvl 28 I think.

the pieces are all over kessek hills. each karma vendor has 1 part. they are also obtainable with different runes in snowden drifts and you get this set in most every area from 15-40ish (lornar's pass as an example).

Here is a map of kessek vendors of the armor parts.

and here is an image of the crafted armors and what they're called. there are images floating around i compiled of all the other armors in large images by armor type (light medium heavy) most of the names are still the same and some are still not found like the tribal, which is now incorrectly named masquerade in the pvp locker, when there is a masquerade set that's crafted and isn't the same.

The profanity filter on/off in a game that does not condone swearing is total entrapment...nothing more or less.


Why have a profanity filter if you're just going to ban everyone for swearing? A profanity filter implies that you allow swearing.

You won't get an exact reason why you were banned so don't expect that, just use common sense.

In my opinion, if they can't provide a reason, then the ban is not valid. It's like being arrested, but not being told what you have done to warrent it. How can someone learn from their mistake - if one even exists - when they have no idea what they did wrong in the first place?

They are actually blocking those people from being able to post who bring up the blocks and politely ask why or for what reason.

Banned for names thus far:

Scary Clown

Just keep an eye on how many are being banned per hour here...


It is out of control....a few people were like me and had not even played yet and were booted and blocked for inappropriate behaviour.
Thing is if people's accounts are being hacked they are given the same suspension message so everyone is lost.
I suspect my account was hacked somehow and there were simultaneous login attempts while creating my character but I am still waiting to hear back on my ticket.

I gather the system is automated to where if 3 people report you the system takes that as enough proof that there is an issue and just slaps a ban on you.
Issue is not the GM's making the calls but rather leaving those calls up to the idiots playing the game who turn the chat filter off and look for people to report for in-game chat and for names that are not even remotely offensive.
A player who had been banned for no reason decided to run a test with his guild mates.
4 of them reported vulgar language on one of their volunteered team mates to test the "automated" system to see if it was legit or not.
Sure enough 20 mins later he was suspended with no reason why.


@ Verranicus...you are not even worth chatting with as you are clueless other that enjoying to push some buttons.
