25/30/0/0/15 is what I run. Seems to be a common burst build.

In Topic: WvW Titles

05 April 2013 - 05:50 PM

I was thinking about this too the other day.

You can get pvp titles for like 1-2k kills meanwhile I have 12k wvw and still have a long way to go. Makes no sense. In fact all
the wvw titles are really way too much grind imo.

Like you I only really wvw. Have since day 1 and almost everyday. No titles in sight for me.

On another gripe I feel the whole major wvw update is a major bust for me too. The abilities mean nothing and the only thing I was interested in was the titles. I assumed that we would be able to display them so our own team could see too ( like any OTHER title ). But no such luck. They are meant only for the other team. So again useless.

Truth is I was really bored with this game but held out to see the updates that were going to make it fun again. Think it is about time to find something else until BF4 comes out.

In Topic: Advice on what to run in W v W at lvl 50

There's a very big difference between:  You can do ___  with "You should do ____"  Everything you described could be done much better (more efficient and effective) by a level 80.

Never understand why people who cannot help try to disparage others. Comments like the one above is a waste of internet space.

No kidding a lvl 80 can do things better than a lower level? WOW! Information like that is really useful.

Listen to the folks who say you can help at any level in wvw. I have leveled a couple toons just in wvw and am working on a thief. Of course there are many things you can do to help the team especially if you can run in a party.

Of course you can level by crafting faster, so what and who cares.

Maybe someone who has played the class a while in wvw will offer up some useful information to lower levels.

In Topic: What is the best way to triat up a Warrior?

12 January 2013 - 07:33 AM

For PVE GS+rifle will work well. Rifle until enemy gets close then switch to GS to finish. In PVE they will run up to you and attack. They wont be moving or dodging so HB will be quite effective when you go toe to toe. For pure damage with GS target enemy, WA, then Bladetrail, turn around, then rush, and finish HB is about as devastating as a warrior can do. Make sure you turn off all option settings in the Combat/Movement section. Those only mess you up.

The bow IMO is better for WvW due to the AOE capability for defense. The rifle is a higher dps weapon and if you are traited like a glass connon can do some good ranged damage.

Also going all or most signets will be fine for low to mid level. In groups this is kinda considered to be selfish build as it doesnt help the party at all but for leveling it is good. As you level up will need to switch to other skills as all signets wont help against higher level npcs. Will probably always want to consider SoR and SoS though no matter the level.

If you want some trait suggestions post your level/points available. Also if you prefer pure dps, survivability, or combo.

In Topic: How do I swung sword?

28 December 2012 - 06:22 AM

Warrior sword builds have good mobility but imo lack too much in the dps category to be useful.

You can apply alot of bleeds but by itself that doesnt do too much. Swords do synergize well with
longbow for a couple finishers.

As for offhand the horn is fine as you get some speed as well as breaking immobilize/cripple so that is useful.

The shield, however, can also break immobilze when traited "Mobile Strikes", can be offensive and defensive. Also
adds another finisher.

So really both are viable.

Outside of pve the sword dps weakness really shows. When relying on bleeds and low dps it takes awhile to actually
kill someone. In WvW you often dont get enough time to finish without putting yourself in trouble. Additionally you will
have to be really good to get any badges. Mostly just contribute to alot of kills getting junk for loot.
