Topics I've Started

Off Hand Torch?

09 January 2013 - 03:26 AM

Hi Guys,  I run with a Staff, Sword + Focus, or Sword/Sword.  Having no issues at all...but was wondering if anyone runs with off hand torch in PVE/PVP/Dungeons.

On that topic, how good is Phantasmal Mage?  Prestige is definitely something I can use, blast finisher...stealth, burning/blind.  Just looking for something else I guess...

Mesmer vs Necro

04 January 2013 - 03:25 AM

Hi all,

I am leveling a Mesmer (love it) and a Necro at the same time.  I have an 80lvl thief that I played first.  Thief taught me the importance of dodging and paying attention to the battlefield.  I've taken these lessons and applied them to both my Mesmer and my Necro.

From a very very macro level, Mesmers and Necros appear to do the same thing.(No?)  I round up mobs, cast choas storm, pull out clones/phantasms/ apply numerous conditions. Shatter...rinse repeat.  Mesmers control/change the battlefield, inflicting conditions etc etc.

My Necro is more or less the same.  Round up...enfeeble, snare, wells, DoT's galore....everything dies.  I realize Mesmers have shatter...Necros have minions(refuse to use), but what are the gaping differences between these classes?  I feel that they overlap more then any of the other classes.  I love them both, Mesmer being my fav...but they seem so similar as I am leveling them.  I realize I have completely wiped both with a generalizing brush stroke, but for those that have both of them...what makes you choose one over the other?  I will say Mesmer is much more engaging/rewarding, as my Necro seems quite a bit "tankier".

I love both of these classes, but they seem to overlap soooo much.  Maybe it's just how I am running them.

Best Elite

Having played different classes, some elites are a bit better then others.  What is your favorite elite?

All weapons for all classes?

Hey Guys

Just a thought as I am really enjoying this game and love all of the possible weapon combinations and their individual uniqueness. What if every profession had access to every weapon? I realize the warrior has this, but think of all the possible combinations and builds there could be if every profession had this. Warrior weapon skills would still be warrior-ey and ranger skills ranger-y etc. Great sword skills are shared across multiple professions yet their uniqueness makes them just that.  I think it would be interesting to see what bow skills would be like on a guardian or hammer skills on an Mesmer. I just really enjoy uniqueness and massive amounts of skills to theory craft on.
