Exactly as the title says. Allot of people who did not play the game at launch were hoping that these would be back. Apparently not. I once again look at the achievement point leader board and wonder if there is even a point to its existence since i and ,many others will never be ranked there because there is no way for us to catch up even if we do all our daily’s every day and go out of our way to earn other achievements. (i have 10,400 achievement points and do all my daily’s every day btw.)

[Ele, Engie] Sigils, and a possible fix.

in Profession Balance

Posted by: Singer.8740

Singer.8740

So as we all know when the feature pack hits there is going to be major changes to the way sigil’s work and two handers are getting an extra sigil slot.
Sadly for Ele and Engie because of there class mechanics they were denied a second weapon set as a means of “balance” from the beginning of the game. Engineer’s could not even use sigil’s with kits in the beginning :/. Thankfully this was fixed and brought the engineer up to around equal to the other classes at the time “somewhat”.
Now with these new changes on the horizon the customizability of sigil’s for the other six classes is jumping ahead of these two classes by leaps and bounds. Most notably the fact that with the changes to stacking sigil’s the other six classes can simply occupy one of there four sigil slots with an on kill sigil and then use the other three slots for what ever they want for example:

My Ham/bow warrior: Hammer, sigil of fire and sigil of force
Bow, sigil of bloodlust and sigil of energy

This allows me to build up bloodlust stacks on my bow while also gaining a dodge back every time i swap to it before i use the burst skill i then swap back to my hammer wich gets 5% dmg from the force sigil and can crit for aoe fire.

Ele’s and Engie’s will not be getting this new versatility as they can only equip one weapon set thus getting only two slots two customize. (no change from the current format.) for example;

My Staff Ele; Staff, sigil of energy and sigil of bloodlust.

with the two slots available i have chosen to take energy to gain a doge every attunement swap in order to help my evasive arcana and a bloodlust sigil to increase dps. If i wanted to gain the benefits of a permanent sigil or on crit sigil like the warrior above i would have to sacrifice ether my energy sigil which i personal believe is integral to my build and roll in battle or my bloodlust stacks.
Engine’s problem lies in the fact that to gain weapon swapping they have to sue a utility slot to do so. First i would like to mention that allot of people assume that this means the engineer is sacrificing a utility to gain something other classes have already. This is a misconception because the engineer class mechanic is the tool belt which in fact is our actual utility bar and we gain a matching utility on our tool belt bar to which kit or actual utility we take so basically if you take a kit you get that kits utility skill on your tool belt and if you take an actual utility you basically gain a second utility on the tool belt. basically a two for one. So engineers do not actually have to sacrifice a utility at all. The problem for engineer’s and the new sigil system lies in something far more simple yet complicated at the same time (typical engineer convoluted nonsense as usual :/ ). The fact that if i wanted to run a gadget or turret build (all though a would not currently because they are teribad right now XD.) or elixer build i will lose access to 25% of all sigils because i would have no way to use weapon swap sigils at all. Basically i would be forced to water down my turret or gadget or elixer build by taking a kit instead of a third turret or gadget(with no trait investment.) just to use a weapon swap sigil. this combined with the fact that all other utility types are incredibly sub par with out being used in conjunction with at least one kit, having only one weapon set to use offensively and the fact that even kits themselves are not created equal to actual weapons with out heavy trait investment which none of these three build types can do with out having to give up core traits to branch into kit traits thus severely watering down build effectiveness.

[Lore] Scarlet and the Reactor. It fits.

in Fractured

Posted by: Singer.8740

Singer.8740

I could go on but the simple fact that i had to point all this out simply shows that you know nothing about Scarlet because you want to hate her to much. If she was really such a villain sue…

It’s Mary Sue not villain sue: “Mary Sue stories—the adventures of the youngest and smartest ever person to graduate from the academy and ever get a commission at such a tender age. Usually characterized by unprecedented skill in everything from art to zoology, including karate and arm-wrestling.”

Read what you just wrote, factor in the character being less than 24, possibly a teenager, and tell me it doesn’t fit the description.

1. Mastering multiple asura schools when even geniuses Snaff and Zojja only did one fits the above description.
2. Firearms and Artillery are apart of war machine engineering which is fairly
obviously what the Iron Legion specializes in. She spent 2 years in the Iron Legion learning how to use them (and it probably included maintenance and creation).
3. “She spent a winter learning metallurgy as an apprentice of Beigarth the Smith,” Direct from wiki. She only spent a winter there. She spent 2 years with the charr, where she learned about engineering and weapons.
4. With the amount of insane Asura we’ve encountered in this game, Ommad never needed Scarlet to begin with. Considering he’s “Headmaster Emeritus of the College of Synergetics”. He doesn’t need a Sylvari. And the entire point of the Isolation chamber was seeing into visions of the eternal alchemy. There’s hundreds if not thousands of asura who’d sacrifice themselves for the honor of it.
5, 6, 7. That’s exactly the problem. She’s a Mary Sue character behind every event in the LS.

A Villain Sue is what you call an evil Mary Sue. look it up. A Mary Sue describes a heroine.
Marksmanship and ordinance are not part of engineering. “Engineering is the application of scientific, economic, social, and practical knowledge in order to design, build, and maintain structures, machines, devices, systems, materials and processes”. They belong in the area of military expertise and training.
Indeed i got the two time frames mixed up. apologies. Does not change the fact that she did not or want to master ether discipline. Asegai was a sniper and demolisionist not an engineer.
Ommad did need Ceara because as a sylvari she is hardwired into the pail tree which as we learned from the the short story is connected/ part of the eternal alchemy.
Just because a villain or hero is recurring does not make them a Sue. If this was true iconic villains such as the joker from batman, or lex luther from superman, or james moriarty from sherlock holmes would also fall under this catagory. (and before you bring it up. a male mary sue is called a marty stu or villain stu.)
You have to many presumptions in your post originating from a biased view toward the character.

So I was reading this interview with Colin Johanson and about half way down the page he confirms that thaumanova reactor will contain new lore relevant to the GW2 story line. So now without a shadow of a doubt you know that votes for kiel will get us new fluff to savor compared to evons abaddon fractal that will simply take us down memory lane but you don’t have to take my word for it, here read it your self. below you will find the paragraph and the link to the full article.

http://www.usgamer.net/articles/colin-johanson-talks-dungeons-dragons-and-chairs

One of the biggest things about the latest patch is that, depending on the candidate who wins the votes, a different dungeon will be installed in the game. Should Gnashblade ascend onto the council, Guild Wars 2 will then be able to witness the Fall of Abaddon. But, if Ellen Kiel makes the cut, the game will bear witness to the mysteries of the Thaumanova Reactor which, unlike Abaddon, is almost completely alien to the lore. ?

“So, what -is- it?” ?

“Well, I can say that the reactor was the first prototype of the Inquest attempt to build something. Somewhat similar to what players find in the Crucible of Eternity later in the game. And the location where the Thaumanova Reactor was at one point in time exploded and destroyed what was once a research lab and turned, I would say, turned the world inside out where it occurred. I can’t give away too much more than that. I would say that if people want to know more, they should vote for Ellen and find out. Either way, it’s definitely something that ties more deeply into the lore of Guild Wars 2 than most would realize – "

Vote Kiel. A vote for Kiel is a vote for progress.

Rogues need to be nerfed, now

in WvW

Posted by: Singer.8740

Singer.8740

Simple solution: give Engineers’ Utility Goggle utility the ability to see stealthed characters.

It will only work for maybe 10s out of every 40 (or 32 if traited), but it will a) cut down the excessiveness of Thieves’ perma-stealth, and b) finally make Eng’s a useful class for large scale WvW.

Of course, to balance this it will help if Thieves have a role in large scale WvW. They’re thieves after all. How about giving them a way to sneak into closed towers, etc.? (Why should Mesmers be the class that can bypass gates?)

I play engineer as my main and have no problems in wvw. Nades can tag 9 people at a time .(three tags a grenade with three grenades a skill. traited) that’s a lot of conditions your spreading around. Now before you go compare it to a necro the two classes work completely different. Necros only hit five people as mentioned above and they also have large cooldowns on these abilitys, but the amount of condition burst and condition stacking they put out is frightening. were as an engineer hits more targets, can easily reapply removed conditions in a matter of seconds and has better maneuverability and get out of jail free options. Both classes bring a different way to run conditions to the table and you should not just presume anything about a class just because you have no luck playing it.

Back on topic I like your idea about the utility goggles. its a stroke of genius but on the flip side I don’t think the thief needs a nerf at all. They have there own play style and if you cant deal with it this just comes down to a lack of personal skill or understanding of the complexities of the thief as a class I am afraid.

Engis Role in a zerg?

in Engineer

Posted by: Singer.8740

Singer.8740

that all sounds great on paper dropper, but have you actually tried using all that in a zerg? all the fields are outdone by eles, all the condi damage is outdone by necro, and you dont need any extra blast finishers when you have 3-5 guardians with hammers. im talking about organized zerg vs zerg. all the small stuff REALLY doesnt make a lick of difference in a zerg. its about the big support the classes have to offer, which i dont see how engi has any of.

So your comparing five guardians with blasts too one engi with the same amount of blasts. This single engi also does water, fire, light and smoke fields compared to a staff ele who has only a fire, water and lightning field. Then you whent and compared the engi to a necro who runs condi’s COMPLETALY different from an engi. necros burst all the conditions on too the five targets and then have to wait through the long cooldowns of there marks/ wells. basically condi spike followed by a period of rest. engis on the other hand apply sustained condi to there targets (9 targets if you run nades. I love ignoring the aoe cap omnomnom.) that is easily reapplied due to short to no cooldowns on the ability’s. to put it simply. necro= lots of condi’s all at once, 5 targets, long condi duration, long well/mark cooldown. engi= sustained condi application and reapplication with high intensity and low cooldown’s (burning, 15 stacks of bleed and vuln is yummy). aaaaand that’s just the tip of the iceberg, but ive made a big enough wall already so mabie another time.

December 10th Balance update

in Engineer

Posted by: Singer.8740

Singer.8740

I am not going to name names, but I see two posters here who complained and moaned about having to swap in and out of kits every 5 seconds and practically demanding they extend its duration now complaining about it.

I feel some of you are bringing up good points, but some post here are irrational over reactions.

I do like the new elixir-infused bombs base heal going up to 217 though. That will bring the ol’ cleric build up to 355. With backpack regenerator at 185, we will be able to maintain a 540 heal tic on ourselves. Add in the 10s of regeneration from Healing mist, and the 10s of heal tic from super elixir, and we will be doing nice AoE heals

I am curious as to what trait will be moving into the explosives adept tier with incendiary powder moving.

accelerant packed turret’s.

Also i agree with you totally this is a good patch for us. The majority of engineers are just but hurt because the perma vigor combo is now via firearms and the crutch that was speedy kits has basically been taken away (thank god). Every engie and there grandmother had this trait because of perma vigor. Now the only people who will take it are people who want perma swiftness via kits in there build. (even then 30% boon duration with elixer b and drop stimulant has the same outcome.)

Turret Engineer (AFK)

in PvP

Posted by: Singer.8740

Singer.8740

You guys exaggerate way to much. Turret builds are not as bad as you paint them to be. There are a number of ways to kill or weaken a turret engineer such long ranging it. you only need an effective range of 1200 to deal with them comfortably and if they are using the shields to lock down your ranged attacks simply bait out the turrets then attack properly during the breaks in rotation. Or you could catch the engineer off point as it travels and take it out or weaken it before it arrives at destination. Or you could simply get a friend and tag team him as turret engineers don’t do well against multiple foes since most of there attacks are single target. And lastly you could simply treat it like a bunker guardian and leave it alone until you focus down his friends or redistribute the fights to outnumber his team on other points since he’s a slow kitten fatty.

Don't let Piken Tank into Silver!!

in WvW

Posted by: Singer.8740

Singer.8740

Just putting it out there that piken square are tanking there score in order to get into silver league. We shouldnt let this happen because;

1. it will create imbalance in the silver league with piken simply steam rolling the tournie.
2. one server will be pushed up to and summarily executed in gold league.

what can be done to stop it.
1. who ever is fighting piken before the tournie starts simply needs to tank there world score. I.E dont cap piken stuff and dont stop them capping your stuff. this will push there score back up.

2. Deso and Gunnars need to make sure to tank there score in all games played before the tournament in order to prevent Piken from swapping one of them out even if they are not fighting against piken.

IN THE FUTURE ARENANET SHOULD REALLY LOCK THE LADDER’S THE MINUTE A LEAGUE IS ANNOUNCED IN ORDER TO PRESERVE FAIR PLAY. A DEVELOPER RESPONSE ON THIS BLATANT ABUSE OF A LOOP HOLE IN THE TOURNAMENT SYSTEM WOULD BE LOVELY.

Ruins of Surmia/Drakkar Lake/Fissure of Woe

in Match-ups

Posted by: Singer.8740

Singer.8740

It’s no longer about being part of a guild. WvW on Drakkar is about being part of the server. Every single soul on the map works as one singular being.

This is exactly why I love playing for Drakkar Lake, too.
I am sorry the way we play is no fun for you, Surmias, but on the other hand, I am one of those boring players who rather like to build and support than joining 1vs1 fights. It’s simply no fun for me to bash other people (even if it’s virtual bashing) and, that said, I have little to no experience how to fight against other players. Come, bash me if you want. I’ll let anyone kill me to get back to what I actually like to do, and you can’t say that scouting, Dolyak speeding, building keeps and keep defense are not part of WvW, too. I am roaming too, but not exactly to look for fights, more to support my server by trying for bloodlust or such. Well, yes… may sound boring for most, but it’s fun for me.

So… if I’d have to put up with lots of small and bigger guilds all working for themselves instead of the server community, I’d certainly enjoy the game much less than I do now.
To each their own, I guess. You can’t have it all, stop looking for all the things you don’t like. Think positive and focus on things you do like, even if you think they’re tiny bits of the whole kitten. Instead of complaining about the massive blobs that blast you while you seem to succeed against smaller groups and the unfairness of it all, think about what Naphack wrote. It may be a different game than you know, or favour, but that doesn’t make it wrong or bad. It simply needs adapting to and making the best out of it. You’ve been doing a great job during the first half of the week but I do think we deserve the outcome (same as you would because of the spirit you showed ingame) since we dedicated ourselves to win the week and didn’t lose faith we could do this.

Good job, to all three servers. It’s an awesome week and I’ve enjoyed taking what little part I can take in it right now due to RL issues.

thumbs up

Edit: I’d like to add, that this is only speaking for me, not for all Drakkarians. We do have people who love to fight.

And that’s the crux of the matter right there. As a server German server’s in general have the same mentality as the high tier servers. and that is the ability to come together as a server for the outcome of the larger picture. You may have noticed for example that DL do not have many dedicated wvw guilds ( IF is the only one that comes to mind.) but what they lack in this aspect they eclipse with there ability to come together as a server, and what this does for them is a.) numerical advantage b.) Good commanders who understand that attrition warfare is the best way to play wvw and who are trusted by there community. c.) they play to win (don’t mind doing the little things and are relentless.) d.) the wvw guilds they do have are active in the community and are not elitist and/ or excluded by the community. e.) coverage. In short it is a very well oiled machine.
hats off to DL on your victory. /salute to the IF guild for some nice fights. I hope RoS learns from this loss and comes together as a server for next time.

SCARLET and the reactor doesn’t fit, Ceara and the reactor fits, for t to make sense it would have to be before she got into the machine that turned her into scarlet. as she supposedly found the answers to everything and went bat crap crazy, so she must have ad this knowledge before hand, its a shame this is not represented.

She worked with the inquest before she got into the isolation pod, hence she gave them the advise regarding chaos energy before then. (shame they went and duffed everything by tampering with dragon energy instead.) The scarlet you see in the fractal is actually the present day scarlet hijacking into your fractal to see what happened herself. Not the past scarlet who was Ceara at the time.

It’s funny how people trivialize Scarlet’s accomplishments by saying: “but she didn’t learn all of it”. Fact is, she still learned more than even Asura do in a fraction of the time. Does it matter if you only study 3/4th of Medicine (which takes a decade at least) if you do it in just 1 year? No, of course you’re not a mary sure then…after all, you didn’t learn ALL of it…

I’m so glad many of you have enough imagination to enjoy Scarlet’s rediculous story because I certainly didn’t.

You say, you find scarlet annoying?
That she is horribly written?

She is Brilliantly, made and here are the following reasons.
1# She distracts you each time from her real goals, by using the Alliances.

You don’t care how she formed the alliances right? Basically you’re saying that if North Korea and South Korea made peace and attacked the USA tomorrow, it’d make perfect sense?

she did not master anything actually. Here is the proof.

through research we also find that the course work she studied in rata sum were heavily simplified introductory course’s tailored for non asurans. She is hardly as smart as an asura this one pod cast alone defuncts all claims of Scarlet being a Sue. Im quite tired of repeating myself now so I think I am going to call this post quits. Too many people with biased views who do not do enough research to back claim’s.

[Ele, Engie] Sigils, and a possible fix.

I have had a proposed idea in answer to these problem’s which i would like to here your thoughts on below.

For Ele’s;

Give ele’s one sigil slot per attunement not linked to the players weapon choice. For example;

My Staff Ele: Fire atn; sigil of fire.
Air atn; sigil of energy
Water atn; sigil of water
Earth atn; sigil of bloodlust.

With this the ele would have access to a different sigil in each attunement so it could build bloodlust by attuning earth when killing and stomping foes. Healing allies when attuning to water with critical hits. Gaining a doge by attuning to air and finally Aoe fire off crits with meteor shower and such while in fire attunement.

For Engineer’s;

Give engineer’s a third sigil slot exclusive for a weapon swap sigil regardless of weapon set equipped. that only procs its effects if the engineer kit swaps, uses a turret or gadget or elixer. This sigil slot follows a number of rules listed below.

A. The sigil inserted in this slot does not change unless replaced with a new sigil (at which point the old sigil is destroyed as usual unless an upgrade extractor is used first.) even if the engineer changes there weapons. (for example a different pair of pistols or a rifle.)

B. only weapon swap sigil’s may be inserted in the slot.

C. The sigil only procs its effect when a utility is used. i.e. Kit swapping, drinking an elixer, using a gadget or turret. At which point it goes on its own internal cooldown.

D. all other normal sigil rules apply.

With this the engineer has access to a weapon swap sigil even if they choose not to run kits and can then have on kill/crit sigils or permanent bonus sigils or even another weapon swap sigil in there actual weapon slots.

These idea’s allow the ele and engineer to use sigils with there class mechanics and brings them to a level playing field weapon swap wise with the other six classes and use sigils in a different and interesting way bringing new interest and customizable options to GW2.

Bellow i would love to here your thoughts on this and your own idea’s that may help bring some balance to ele’s and engineer’s in this area and hopefully with soem positive discussion and enigmatic idea’s we may even be able to grab Anet’s attention to this and persuade them to do something to help.

Below is a link to the thread regarding general discussion about this topic.
