In Topic: Defeating the Holy Trinity - Success or Failure?

28 September 2013 - 08:05 AM

I'm going to call it a success, but the system in place is currently on life support. More and more people are catching on that you can and should use Zerker for eveything PvE. Control and Support exist in game, but they're not needed, and usually  counter productive in dungeons. Right now some AC groups bring a Guardian or Ele along for support heals and condi cleanses to keep the group alive as they all stack in a corner and do as much damage as possible. It would be nice if heals and boons had a bigger role in PvE, and I'd like to see that changed in the coming future. Control is not needed because of Defiant and Unshakable. DodgeThisBam did a nice video on that, and I'm inclined to agree. Condition damage is second rate because of the limited stacking. Why this hasn't been changed yet is beyond me.

World boss PvE fights like Tequatl suffer a similar fate. You can't crit Tequatl, and having a Condi class in a zerg adds nothing. If you want to stay Condi you can defend the turrets or respec. This means PvT armor outclasses everything else because all of the stats are usable.

I've enjoyed GW2 thus far, but the DPS trinity is getting stale. I'm going to try DeConstructs suggestion and play FF14. It sounds like they did what GW2 had envisioned, with better execution.

In Topic: Are there any PvE S/D builds?

I don't know of any personally. But there is a cool video on reddit of a S/D Thief soloing Lupicus. I think ill be giving S/D another look .

In Topic: Too many options for weapons?

08 February 2013 - 10:12 PM

I played with different weapons a lot at 80. Right now i'm using Greatsword and Longbow. I also enjoy axe/mace or axe/axe. I really tried to love hammer, but I feel like I contribute more if I'm doing loads of damage. I used sword/shield as a fresh 80, but quickly learned I can't tank, and that other Warriors were killing me much faster then I could kill them. Rifle is cool for big Kill Shot numbers, but I think Longbow is the better range weapon. I didn't like greatsword much because it seemed to LOLFACEROLL, but it really is a good weapon. Whirlwind has become my new favorite ability because of the built in evade. Hopefully a-net will rebalance some weapons, and especially face lift conditions, so people don't feel forced to use direct damage builds. When they introduce 2h axe in the future, that will be my favorite weapon : )

In Topic: Scepter and dagger fit for a necromancer, what do you use?

Hypnotic Scepter for a Lidless Eye knockoff. Doesn't have the stats you'd want, but you can transmute it.
