Warrior Skill Lag

15 August 2013 - 07:46 AM


I'm having a weird problem on my warrior (only level 12), in that my skills don't seem to fire off when I hit their respective keys. Even changing weapons seems, like it has a lag on it.

I thought this might be a latency thing, but when I jump onto my Mesmer, the skills activate right away.

Has anyone else experienced this, or is it meant to be like this?


Nvidia Control Panel Setting for GW2

06 November 2012 - 04:11 PM

Hi all,

Has anyone got any good recommendations to setting up the Nvidia Control Panel setting for GW2?

I kind of understand the technicalities, but not to the point where I know if one item would effect another and so on.

If someone has a setup that overrides the GW2 graphic options that outputs a better display, could you post it here?

Many thanks!

[Build] Dazling Interuptions

30 October 2012 - 04:50 PM

EDIT: This was meant to go into the PvP Mesmer sub forum, can a Mod please move it!

I've been thinking about a daze/interrupt build for my Mesmer for a while.
I'm not sure it would be a viable build to run, due to the lack of damage, but here is my first draft.


A few things to note:
30 Points in Domination gains you:
Confounding Suggestions (Master), but you have to sacrifice 10 points to get there due to near useless Master tier, I've opted for Signet Mastery due to having a signet in utilities.
Alternatively you could go 30 points into Illusions  for Illusionary Invigoration and Imbued Diversion, as well as the innate cooldown on shatters.

In my opinion Domination is more 1v1 with utilities making up for the cooldown you get in Illusions, while Illusions is more group PvP.

Daze/Stun skills:
Illusionary Riposte -> Counter Blade - Daze
Chaos Storm (small chance) - Daze
Signet of Domination - Stun
Mantra of Distraction - Daze
Arcane Thievery  - Not sure if this would transfer Stun/Daze?
Diversion - Daze

Trait Synergy:
Confounding Suggestions : Any Daze skill has a 50% chance to Stun the target. Need a say more?
Wastrels Punishment : 5% increased damage to inactive foes. If Daze and Stun count as inactive, this works great and is "free" on your way to Confounding Suggestions.
Dazling : Inflicting Daze, also inflicts Vulnerability.
Halting Strike : Inflict damage whenever you interupt a foe, if Daze and Stun count as interrupt this is a great one, Im unsure on the damage though.
Illusionary of Vulnerability : More Vulnerability on interuptsions.
Blade Training : 20% faster cooldown on sword skill 4.
Mirror of Anguish : Reflect Stuns and Daze back to foe (90 second cooldown)
Illusionary Invigoration : Recharge shatter skills at 50% hp

All other traits should be based for either damage output or survivability.

Anyway, the way I see this build working is a reaction based interrupt style.
With it we have plenty of daze/interrupt options that you should have one available every 2-4 seconds. If you stagger your clones then Diversion can hit up to 3 time in one go, one after another.

My only concern with it, is the lack of damage output, but in theory it should be able to lock most classes down to just auto attack.

What do you guys think?

Mesmer plus WvW Badge Tokens

15 October 2012 - 04:30 PM

Hi Guys,

I've been playing allot of WvW on my Mesmer lately and noticed I'm not getting very many badges.
I think I've got the most badges from exploring the maps and sitting on a cannon inside one of the towers/keeps.

Ive only just join a WvW guild and hope to run with more people, as I've mainly been playing solo, in the hope of getting more kills, badges and a overall better experience at WvW.

The build I run is Sword Sword/GS OR Sceptre Focus/GS, with both of these weapons I have enough AOE skills to "tag" opponents, but still find myself lacking the loot bags that drop from enemies.

Can anyone give me any pointers onto how to get more badges or tell me if this is normal.

In the last 3-4 days of playing WvW 2-3 hours a day I've gotten about 8 badges, surely this is low?

Also I'm only level 70 is pretty crappy gear, by upgrading my gear to level 70 rare's would I dish enough AOE damage to better tag enemies?


Loading Issues

31 August 2012 - 12:59 PM

Has anyone else experienced a loading problem when moving from an overflow server to the main one?

For me the screen stays on the loading graphic with the circle whizzing around, I can hear the game world and people running around, but it just wont load any further.

Is this due to lag? The only way I can get around this is to either reload the client or sometimes, it simply loads after a few minutes.
