In Topic: Fractal Support Guardian Build

A lot of you people make very good points; however, I am reluctant to believe that increased Retaliation duration is a worthwhile investment in any PvE scenario.  The NPCs normally worth worrying about have large slugs of attacks, and more often than not you are trying to avoid taking the brunt of any damage whenever possible, and this includes all party members.

While I am not about to argue the effectiveness/lack of effectiveness on Healing Power, do keep in mind that it will affect Regeneration as well as Virtue of Resolve.  Going deep into Honor grants you the ability to give allies Virtue of Resolve, which takes into account your Healing Power (but does not take into account Absolute Resolution from the Virtue tree).  You can, essentially, do some fairly decent passive healing through Hold The Line! and Battle Presence, but that is all situational, like most things.

In Topic: Tier 3 Cultural Armor too much?

10 November 2012 - 07:55 PM

I had some luck with the Halloween event that passed and made enough gold to purchase Tier 3 Cultural Armor for my Sylvari Female Guardian.  While I agree that the expenses were overwhelming, I am the type of person who saw every set obtainable to my character and said, "You will be mine... oh yes... you will be mine."  No regrets spending the gold, although since then I have had, at most, 10g total to my name since the event finished and I have nothing to bank luck on.  Still... it all comes down to what you think is worth it to your gameplay, and what isn't.

Food for thought that may play into my action: I only have one character.  I will only have one character.

In Topic: Is the mad king chests worth it?

25 October 2012 - 06:04 PM

I just made 13 about five minutes ago.  Two unique shield skins (each sold for 18g) and one unique medium shoulder skin (1g).  Seems very, very random, as expected.

Also gained a bunch of specific tonics, over 250 candy corn (total) and a minimum of 2 rare crafting materials per box.

edit: To put it into perspective, I had opened 30 Black Lion Chests the day the event started and only received one shoulder skin (light).

2x Monk, 2x Earth, 2x Grove + 30 Virtues = almost permanent protection uptime and very long boons.

Dolyak runes are a joke.

A late response to this post; however, I was under the impression (and had tested said-impression) that the Virture Boon Duration bonus does not stack with any runes that increase durations.  In other words, if you were using Runes that granted +15% Boon Duration, having Virtues going 16pts or more actually overrides the bonus (unless you stack two to get +30% Boon Duration from Runes).

Ambrosia has stats I would love to have.  A shame you're keeping it a secret from us when it comes to making it.
