Compatative(ish) F2P Builds?

09 May 2016 - 06:44 PM

Hi people.

I'm not sure how active these forums are nowadays, but I've always trusted guru more than the official forums in many respects (moderation, helpfulness etc.).

I'm currently slowly ranking up a free account in order to be able to pvp with my friends/guildies who are less good at pvp than me - I'm not amazing, but I'm pretty decent - when the next season rolls around, without forcing them against teams in my main account's division.

(side: I realize division has very minimal correlation with skill - don't roast me :D)

So, are there any builds which you can think of that are good enough to compete with the HoT builds. I'm currently running the pre-HoT variant of D/P thief, to reasonable effect but this may be a combination of playing against new/bad people and thief being my best class.

Your thoughts? I feel like you could possibly throw a necro together and have some success, same with engineer.

I'm looking for a build which is good enough to not be a massive handicap to my team :)

Thanks in advance!

Quick one re: Magic Find, Pvp boxes, and Silverwastes Buff

18 June 2015 - 10:23 PM

Hey all.

So my current practice is to stack up my pvp boxes, wait for the Call of the Mists to come around, stack MF and open them all at once.

I am aware, however, that in theory I could max out my magic find by getting the Silverwastes buffs (can't remeber what they're called - there's a stacking one and one for killing VW).

Now, since PvP boxes are affected by Magic find, I was wondering if anyone could confirm if these 2 buffs from the Silverwastes would affect the boxes while I open them. It's a fair chunk more magic find, so it'd be nice to figure if it's worth my while.


Crash/Freeze Issue - Bluescreen attached.

08 February 2015 - 12:56 AM

Hello all.

I've recently noticed I seem to have developed a crash problem at random times. This has now happened 4 times, over the past week or so.

I'm boggled as to what is causing it, or how to fix that, so I hope someone can help me out here.

So, the error occurs pretty randomly, and will cause my screen to freeze, peripherals to not respond, and I can't close or input anything other than hard restart.

Twice, this has then gone to a black screen, followed by rainbow pixellation (looks fragmented - as you'd expect an old game with incorrect gfx setup or something to do), then Bluescreen. The other times, it's simply hung up where it was and not gone any further.

I've checked Event Viewer, and there was something in there logged just after the reset which indicated "Bugcheck" had found/done something.

I've dropped in a photograph of the screen (excuse the old vga monitor <_<) hopefully it might have something useful in there.

Any thoughts or suggestions as to steps to take now would be great.

Looking for WvW roaming/solo advice

29 August 2014 - 11:51 PM

Hi all,

I've been enjoying mesmer in solo/roaming recently, but wondered if there was some things I could improve on.

Gw2 Skills seems to be down currently, so I'm running:

Full Zerk
Traveler Runes
6 2 6 0 0

I'm told that mixing your armor up a bit for more vit or toughness can be nice. I don't know how effective that'll be though, and I'd prefer not to spend my limited gold until I'm sure.

I've ran mes in pvp and me pretty good at it there, but that would be with the standard shatter build, and I'm aware wvw is somewhat a different animal.

Any advice?

Thief max range issue

12 July 2014 - 01:15 AM

Hi all.

I'm finding that playing thief (my main moreorless), the lack of 1200 range is really handicapping for a lot of pve. I do not mean dungeons, or speedclears, as range is somewhat useless there.

Every class except thief has access to 1200 or more range on at least 1 weapon/bundle.

I think something needs re-working to fix this. My suggestion would be something along the lines of adding an additional skill fact to shortbow #1. "If over 900 range, this attack does not bounce". Something like that anyways - and bump the max up to 1200.

What do you think? I feel like lack of 1200 handicaps the class in general. Have you found any issues regarding this?
