Thoughts on Action Camera Mode

17 October 2015 - 07:12 PM

So it was recently revealed that official support for the much loved Action Combat Mod has been secretly in development for a year, and should be going live with Heart of Thorns. Thoughts? Anyone out there excited or planning to give it a try? Have you used the mod in the past?

As for me I've never used the mod, but I'm going to give the official version a try. I even went so far as to reinstall a controller mapping program called Xpadder so I can see how that works. If anyone is interested I'll drop a screen cap of my key/controller binds in a spoiler tag.


Boxes of armor

09 October 2015 - 03:12 AM

So in the game, and sometimes found on the trading post, you can find bundles of armor. By that I mean a full set of armor (minus accessories of course) of a given rarity and prefix all bundled nicely into a space saving bundle of some kind. I want one of these; I'm working on getting gear ready for my revenant, but I have limited bank space. I'd just buy one, but the issue is I want celestial armor; so I'd need to make it myself.

So here is my question; is it possible to make one of these for celestial gear, and if so how?

Up to date skill/trait/gear calculator with elite specs and revenant

05 October 2015 - 09:40 PM

Well this is lovely. A full everything calculator complete with the revenant and all elite specializations, last updated October second. And to think I actually started ignoring this site because it was so out-of-date for so long....

Here's a link. If you didn't already know about it, enjoy.


Condi Druid; it's a thing. Kind of.

Those who may have seen my recent threads know that when it comes to the druid I am not a fan, to put it simply. But I decided since we have a beta weekend to try my hand at creating a non-healer druid build just to see what happens. So here it is, feel free to try it out if you get the chance and offer some feedback.

I prefer tanky/condi pets such as the Salamander Drake and Reef Drake. Don't overlook that new Fire Wyvern though.

Prefix and runes
Due to the lack of Sinister in the beta boxes, I went with full rabid. I also used full Krait runes.

Primary weapon
Shortbow with a sigil of Earth, and a sigil of corruption.

Secondary weapon
whatever you want, I went with axe/torch

A link to the Dulfy.net trait calculator.

Healing skill
Troll Unguent. A useful heal that synergizes well with the trait set up to provide a little extra condi cleanse and fury.

Utility slots
7: Take your pick
8: Glyph of Tides
9: Glyph of Equality

Elite Skill
Entangle, pure condi/control awesomeness.

This build has nothing to do with healing and support, so you're pretty much never even going to have the resources for your Celestial Form. Instead kite around in close/mid range spamming bleeds and poison via your shortbow. Due to the taunt trait your pets can pull mobs off you if need be, and you also have three skills suited to controlling enemies. Due to the Ancient Seeds trait you can cause minor versions of the entangle elite whenever you disable a foe. Both your utility glyphs can set this up, as can you shortbow 5.

You'll want to stack as many conditions as you can on your foes while also keeping them locked down and away from you. This will make things easier on other players as well, and you can really blow up basic PvE mobs. If you find yourself getting swarmed a powerful tactic is to lead in with Glyph of Equality to daze, then follow with Glyph of Tides to trigger the entangle effect on all effected foes. You can then push the damage higher by using the proper Entangle elite, and unleashing a Poison Volley from your shortbow. Try doing it in a Wyvern's fire field and enjoy watching everything just melt.

Quick random build, seeking opinions

30 September 2015 - 12:23 AM

Just been theory crafting a few builds on different classes to help decide on a new main. I like condi builds, but don't like being overly selfish. Likewise I never go pure offense because I prefer to keep a little survival capability regardless of build. So here is a link to my newest idea, and I welcome any opinions or advice from more experienced necro players.
