#2207609 dont feel very necro

Posted Desild on 29 May 2013 - 02:27 PM

Saddest part? Mesmers are better minion masters than Necromancers. With expendable and easier to summon Illusions. If we painted their spells green, changed the butterflies into skulls, and made the Illusions into bone horrors, we would have a better Necromancer than what we have now.

At least I can grind with an axe. Haha! Get it? Because we can use Axes now.

#2240453 Does GW2 need damage meters?

Posted Castaa on 04 October 2013 - 05:21 PM

Does GW2 need the option to turn on damage/healing output for the group/people around you fighting?

I think it does, desperately. I say this because nothing made me want to be a better player than adding my damage meters to my UI in Rift because it offered a window on how to improve as a player in comparison to others.

Right now, I think many including myself, play largely in the dark about how good or bad their build and/or technique is and it makes encounters that much more difficult and frustrating for everyone.

Of course top end gear is always going to make some difference but right now it's difficult to judge how much a difference gear makes and the other variables a player can immediately change and improve.

Posted Dirame on 27 September 2013 - 07:47 PM

Hey guys! New week, build. And this week I put together a build based on using the Rune of the Thief as much as tactically possible. It’s all about making your target turn to his/her backside so you can whip it real good. Check out the links to video if you want tips, tricks, the whats and the whys and if you just want the build, there’s a link to the build as well;

#2251004 Why am I getting dissed for only wanting zerkers in my party?

You are evil and probably eat babies like every zerker out there.

That's uncalled for.

As it is uncalled for considering me a lesser player for wanting to roll with a Cleric Guardian. Respect, my friends, is a two way road, and if you have the quite biased belief that Beserker gear is superior (half the time it is true), who am I to judge?

But when it turns the other way around and I'm getting flak for my choices, well, that just isn't a way to build a community that's based on cooperation. It then turns into an all-out-war between those who discriminate non-berserkers and those who feel all builds are valid. No less valid than believing that it is best to pull the evil from its roots and chastise every person that discriminates people based on their on gear. Toxic but effective.

While it is your right to demand what you want. There are repercussions for your inability to be flexible, especially regarding other players builds. You don't have the right to tell other people how their builds should be arranged without being told off. So if you want make unreasonable demands then you're going get the type of responses you're getting.

If you don't think you're being unreasonable, then you obviously aren't thinking things very clearly.

He's not being unreasonable, because he isn't telling anyone else how to play or change their build/gear. He's simply saying he wants only zerkers, which is not unreasonable at all. After all, you have a choice of joining his group or not. If you don't want to be in a group that wants to get stuff done quickly with zerkers, then you don't join them. It really is as simple as that.

OP is in the right, he can accept and remove anyone he wants from his team because nobody is entitled to having someone carry them or entitled to a spot in his team.

- On another note this raises the question if the LFG tool should have a "pending invite" sort of invite system. As the LFG tool right now is just a "who can click the fastest to join the first group that appears", which then often leads to people not reading the description at all. I also personally think groups should have a designated group leader(the person that makes the LFG) who is the only to decide if they can be kicked or not while the dungeon has not started. While in another person would have to accept the kick. - Just a thought.

If you're asking for a zerker only group in your LFG note and people don't read it it's their fault - they don't HAVE to join your group and you have the right to form an all zerker party with like minded individuals.

#2231745 Best WvW Build... Commando Build? (link inside)

Posted lmaonade on 06 September 2013 - 11:04 PM

WvW is not PvE, you kill environmental objects such as gates and doors, you kill NPCs of all sorts of levels from bronze to legendary, and you capture certain points by fending off enemies and holding the circle until the bar fills up and...

Wait I guess it is PvE then

Joking aside, build is alright, it's pretty much an Altruistic Healing cookie cutter with some traits swapped around, your vid was good but the build is nothing I haven't seen before, and like all Altruistic Healing builds it's a frontliner through and through. I can vouch for its effectiveness but I would never really say that it's the best, since I personally prefer Healway and think it's better overall. Sustain vs burst argument I suppose.

Now to the PvE side of it. Nonono! I've seen enough people with Altruistic Healing on and thinking that they're somehow supporting their party and I'm sick of it, 30 in Honor is support, 30 in Virtues is support, 30 in Valor is purely self defense (with the exception of the first 10 points)

I used to run an Altruistic Healing build too, during my first month of playing Guardian, I am WAY past those kinds of builds in PvE, take the 30 from Valor and put it into Radiance and you get a much more wholesome party build.

#2235670 The Shield - Pointless?

#2234311 The Shield - Pointless?

Posted guanlongwucaii on 18 September 2013 - 04:44 PM

if you use the shield please don't be that moron knocking things out of melee range. it's a lot worse than focus imo (no vuln stacking, no blast finisher, no big burst deeps), the only thing that the shield has going for it is the looks. I have to admit that I get kind of scared when I see PUG sword/shield (or god forbid mace/shield) guardians, though that's just a bias of mine. I have been seeing more guardians running some garbage clerics mace/shield build though...

I like it, you can do both pve and wvw with this it seems. And also I am getting sick of all berserker builds on the forums. Time to nerf that shit :)

In the current state of the game everything besides Berserker's is arguably useless.

Why would you nerf the best gear/builds for organized comps and people who excel at surviving? Because you don't like it?

I think you should break the mold and start going around with multiple weapon sets. At least a Greatsword for AoE Melee, Hammer for sustained melee damage single target, a shield to combo with your scepter, a sword to combo with your torch, a staff just because it is probably one of our best weapons support wise, and a mace. Basically all of them.

Limiting yourself to just the two sets you can swap equip is dull and will severely limit you ability to perform in PvE.

And using weapons of different attributes is also helpful. Knight's/Berserker and Cleric are what I go around with. Mace, Shield, Hammer and Staff are Cleric's while my Greatsword, Sword, Torch and Scepter are Knights. Or, if you are one of those efficient and helpful metagamers, put everything Berserker and call it a day.

As for Traits, it really doesn't matter as long as you pick Wet Noodlism. That thing will keep you alive where others would bite the dust because mobs don't die because you'll deal very little damage. The rest is up to your preferences. 10 in Radiance will give you a vuln on blind, which will increase the heal potential of your healing skill which should actually be Shelter as that's much better. Shouts are your bread and butter when you're not using valuable Fire Fields which also grant stability/remove conditioons., so cutting the recharge of both or either helps. 5 or 10 points in Virtues will equip said virtues with boons that synergize with Wet Noodlism, for an extra heal when in a pinch.

There we go, fixed that for you.

Only if they're stood in the area of the mark. Personally, I'm there to hold aggro and keep myself alive, whilst dishing out boons to the rest of the party without them having to stand on top of me.

They should be standing in the mark, in melee, if they're a remotely good group whatsoever.

The only reason you're holding aggro is because they're not standing on top of you or the mob. If you had a melee group you'd begin to fail at tanking as a "support tank" build and instead just be a lack luster dps.
