Quickness got nerfed as we all know. The problem is they haven’t adjusted all the things that give quickness. My main is a warrior and they did adjust Frenzy in accordance to the quickness nerf. Longer duration and less damage taken. A step in the right direction.
But what about the quickness sigil? The speed aspect got nerfed, but neither the Cooldown or Duration got any change to balance it out.
What about the warrior 30pt trait “Last Chance”? Still a 90 sec cooldown for the same duration of quickness.
Thief trait “critical haste” is also unchanged cooldown and duration.
There’s probably more, but I don’t know all the classes and skills. Feel free to add anything else relating to quickness, so anet can see this thread and make appropriate changes. Thanks
When I got this game, I was excited to hear the end of the Trinity. At first it was fun and exciting to be able to heal myself and not spend time looking for the a specific class to fill a role for a dungeon. The problem is, like the OP said, almost every boss and dungeon just feels like a chaotic dpsing game that gets old quick. There is no real feel of accomplishment, no real feel of teamwork, no real feel of being part of a finely tuned machine.
The OP’s idea makes a lot of sense. This game removed the Trinity, now they have to put something in its place to fill the void it left. The void of, TEAMPLAY and STRATEGY. The simplicity of your bosses, Claw of Jormag, hell all your world bosses are really pathetic. I’ve been on a couple farming run of all these bosses, everyone just stands in one place and attacks it till their pretty chest pops up on the side of their screen. Wow. You guys had ONE good world boss, Fire Elemental, then nerfed him to oblivion. Now people stand INSIDE his Flaming body and dps him down. Ridiculous.
Anyway back to the OP’s post. I like your idea to adding more teamwork and strategy to bosses and dungeons, but some of the examples, although good, make me raise an eyebrow as what could happen. The CCing boss, everyone would just want to bring 5 hammer warriors to massacre it. The snaring boss, bring a trap ranger with a warhorn to give everyone swiftness while snaring the boss and dpsing. Idk if these are the best classes to bring in these situations, but I know people will find the best classes and excludes others like P1 CoF. This isn’t the OPs fault, but rather the players of gw2 tho. Best solution I can think of is make these into challenging guild missions, so no one is left out.
Anet! Listen to the OP make more challenging events!!
Hey op, thanks for sharing the vid. I actually really enjoyed watching it. I main a warrior too and watching that vid, it just feels like the most honest duel. No tricks, stealth, clones or other bullkitten. Just two warriors going at it. A nice clean fight, honor and pride.
TBH, I rolled my eyes when I realized you were only fighting another warrior, but after watching it, I’m glad you did. I’m sorry and thank you, I really needed a reminder of why I chose to stay with warrior over all these other classes that anet seems to love more. Peace and good gaming man
Edit: OH and I really liked the song selection at the end. Made it feel like two warrior buddies just having a friendly duel on a nice day haha GJ!

Just adding that this happens to me too. Very jarring and the lost of a stamina on an unintended dodge is terrible.
Don’t nerf warrior. Just bring everything up to GS quality. All we have is damage with our lack of utilities and tricks. Tired of seeing thieves doing more damage than us. Their job is is to sneak around and use utilities. We should be the big damage dealers, people should be scared when we get close. Hard enough as it is to get into melee range, do damage and get out without dying. If you’re complaining about pve, what does it even matter. Mobs don’t care what you use to kill them.
Also getting weird skill lag
I WvW a lot and I’ve noticed that Mobile Strikes not getting me out of immobilizes 100% of the time anymore. It was fine before the patch. I asked other warriors I WvW with and they notice it too. Please fix this Anet. Asap. This and the new input lag (Also since patch) on warriors skills that happens randomly, its like kicking a person already on the ground. Seriously just help us already.
When I got immobed I used WW, BR and Shield Bash. I didn’t move an inch after using either of them. Then I doubled checked if mobile strike was equipped. It was.
You watch him blink/invul/stunbreak all your stuns and immobilizations and if somehow you get lucky and and trap him in a burst, watch him stealth and get away.
LOL I’m still getting flamed on this thread? Yes I made a skinny slyvari cuz I wanted to make a warrior and be like a samurai or slender swordsman type. Samurai idea didn’t work cuz there’s nothing like a katana or eastern armor, but I liked my skinny swordsman knight look, but… Update! I caved and bought the remake thing and did max height and body. Guess what T3 Sylvari cultural is still ugly on a MALE.
And all the omg you picked bad colors people, I’ve asked numerous friends and players to come up with a good color scheme. Numerous times. Guess what, we couldn’t find any. I stand around in LA for like an hour every week trying to make it look good. I want to wear it! BUT, the whole set by itself is just so ugly. Mixing and matching I’ve found two schemes that look great. If you have T3 cultural and have a good color scheme, by all means POST A PICTURE or stop talking smack like you know something. I would LOVE to see a MALE character look good in it. I WANT it to look good!
It looks amazing on a female, but why should I have to buy a remake and make myself female to wear an armor supposedly tailored for a slyvari? Minion’s character looks really really awesome and so does Jujujuju’s, but I don’t want to play a female character. And AGAIN cuz people can’t read I said the helm is INCREDIBLE! SSJ3 ALL DAY.
I have a full set of every dungeon armor. I like to look to good. I thought that was what this game was about besides pvp and wvw. But Anet really dropping the ball on all things. And it shows with less and less people logging on in my guild. Wvw out manned everywhere and getting stale. People complaining about bunker and burst builds dominating spvp and tpvp. Don’t let it die Anet!!!
Hi, is there anyway to extract sound files from the game for personal use? Any help is appreciated.

Lol its there, go look in game on your warrior. Be pretty sick, cuz its a worthless move right now. Especially since its single target, so you can’t even just throw it out just for fun. But with this buff…!
Instead of just Fury, it says it adds Power and Condition damage based on your adrenaline level. 15 stacks of might for 11 secs at lvl 3. Thats really nice! But wtf, it doesnt work? I just tested it a few times and I’m still only getting fury buff. Can others confirm and if it is broken can Anet fix this pronto!
Please make it easier to discern between enemy invaders and enemy pets. Bad enough when there’s a zerg and its just a sea of red text coming at you, but now add +1-3 per hunter and necro pet and its really stupid. Can’t properly target enemies with Tab, can’t properly see how many actual enemies there are. I know you don’t wanna be like WoW, but how hard is it to put a “<>” around pet names? Would make it 10x better, its so ridiculously simple.
Its also annoying when people call out 30+ enemies are attacking so and so, because they can’t differentiate between players and pets because your system is so bad.
Arcing Slice’s tooltip says uppercut, but its a downward slice. Charge is a charge, then an uppercut. Who does that? When you charge, it feels more natural to do a downward strike than an uppercut. Move the Charge uppercut to Arcing slice, so it reflects the tool tip. Then move Arcing Slice downward smash to charge. YAHOO!
I just want to destroy people. When they go down they should be dead. They lost. GG.
I wouldn’t mind dying and just dying. If they caught me off guard or outplayed me, kudos to them. I remember getting into a fun 1v1 with this really good ele. After it was all said and done and I was down on the ground it felt like I lost fair and square. Now I’m throwing stupid rocks at him, so he has to run and heal before coming back to execute me. Doesn’t lend anything to the fight. Just a waste of time. Now, say I had some teammates come and chase him away before he could execute me. Wow, I would feel sorry for the guy cuz he played good and is probably frustrated now because he didn’t get his kill credit. Just have me die die, can still get rez’d from defeated anyway.
Anyway, Its fair if everyone gets it. I don’t think anyone’s strategy is to actually go into down state to win a fight. Thats just sad.
And to the reply, enemies using it as a tactic. They weren’t. They were just dying and losing and there just happen to be stupid wolves around that were getting killed randomly from all the attacks going around.
Azaruil also makes a good point about small teams vs zerg. Just become a fight of who has the most population over skill.
Only valid reason I see down state not going out, is because of moves like Warbanner that rez downed players instantly. Would make those moves definitely worthless.
It okay, I found the answer. “SWAMP THING” color scheme. Doesn’t look half bad now. Pic makes it look darker than it is, though. Haha enjoy the games guys. I won’t be checking this thread anymore. LATES
My bro and I get chased by like 5 enemies. We duke it out with them, pretty much downed them all at least once. Killed like 2 in the end, I think. We would’ve killed them all, but in the fight there was also a pack of npc wolves.
Well we are both warriors, so while we are beating up these enemies we are killing these wolves. In a fight like that, theres no time for stupid executes on down characters. So up they go and down they go. Of course, we died in the end, only getting 2.
To ANET, Please take out down state, its so dumb. Its good for pve, but take it out of pvp. Or make it so these dumb random animals don’t rez people. Thanks!
Lol have you seen T2 and T1 heavy? I own both, it doesn’t look like twigs and leafy foliage. Looks like hard segmented wood plates, T1. T2, looks like hard woven bamboo segments and plate. Both T1 and T2 look like I’m ready for a fight. A heavy armored warrior. Anet got these 2 right.
T3 look like I wrapped a leaf towel around my waist after getting out of the shower. The shoulder only covers one side and its really small, like so small, I might as well just turn off my shoulder graphic and I wouldn’t even notice. The spikes on shoulders are just sad. I think they were going for a thorny look, but made them too skinny and flat, so they just look like little needles. The gloves, they got right. Looks like there were gonna have a sweet armored OAKEN (like in the name of the set) warrior all covered in thick bark, but then just scrapped the whole idea, but left the gloves so you can wonder wtf happened. Hahaha. Boots look like something a light armor character should be wearing. Like a bard if that was in the game. Helm is awesome.
Idk if there was a miscommunication, but I WANT to look planty! Thats why I have all 3 sets, so I can always mix some kind of cultural in it. My guys NAME is Hearty Plaintain!
Anyway thanks for replying Urthona, no hard feelings. I just wanted to talk about the armor with other slyvari players.
I ALMOST used the character makeover to make myself female so I could look good in T3. Almost.
Okay, why do you guys like it? To me, it doesn’t look like you are wearing any decent armor at all. Ragged skirt thing, and we have ALOT of skirts in this game to choose from already. Chest is ok if you’re into that less is more theme, but there is already pit fighter, gladiator, and barbaric armor which are just straps on your chest. The boots are like little bootys a baby or elf would wear.
I bought it because I had the money to spend and my guildie told me to embrace my culture. I did preview it and I was hoping it would look better on me than in the previews. Plus you need to buy all three tier sets for the sylvari cultural armor achievement.
Don’t need to put my mix and match down either, cuz I already get a lot of praise for it, so it just seems childish to attack me for that.
Looking forward to you’re reasons, because I want to like it.
Is the most ugly thing ever. T1 Heavy Sylvari, not bad. T2 Heavy Slyvari, getting good, looking armored up. T3? Holy kitten. Someone in the art department dropped the ball. 120 gold for something that doesn’t scream cultural t3 or style. Looks like garbage. Doesn’t even look planty if thats what they were trying to go for. Looks like someone ripped off all my bark and armor and left me a naked newborn slyvari fresh from the pale dream.
Look at Human T3 heavy, look at Asura T3 heavy, Charr T3 heavy, Norn T3 Heavy. All amazing. You look at your character and you’re proud. When I look at myself wearing T3 Slyvari , all I can think is, “Holy kitten thats ugly” “Wow so ugly” “Good god what was I thinking”.
I know, I don’t have to wear it, and I won’t, but kitten I wanted to be cultural. And for 120g it should be decent at least. I doubt it will ever get changed, I just wanted to gripe about it. The armor looks kitten good on a Slyvari female though. I’ll give them that. The helm on males is good too, I get compliments on that alot. Super sayian 3 haha. But thats the only good part.
Heres some reference:
First, T3 Cultural Heavy
Second, My Mix Match
King crab in Melachor’s Leap, of course! He just sit there blowing bubbles while I stab his face with a spear. Whats not to love! CRABs back on the menu boys!

YEP. Bugged on Gate of Madness server. I have everything but a few shards to finish my legendary. Don’t want to have to wait a week to transfer back to GoM, just so I can be back with my friends for a few measly shards. Anet needs to fix this event or have daily resets on these temple events.
Its bugged atm, just need to get shards to finish my legendary. Hope theres a server reset soon.
Thanks Hawkeye. You’re the best avenger! Well after Captain America, sorry. lol
oops running dungeons with my group of friends! How long do temples stay uncontested for ?
Transfers changing to once every 7 days, better get my shards! Can anyone share if their temple is free? Thanks
any recent uncontested servers?
Adding my agreement to the horridness of this event. Not only is this event bugged A LOT, it is also really difficult to do. The last escort to the temple is ridiculous. I’ve seen the mobs spawn and just nuke the npcs killing them all instantly causing failure. Or just killing a few, chipping away at the Pact Morale bar, which for some reason never goes back up, again causing failure.
If by chance you are lucky enough to round up a big enough zerg to get past the escort, well I’ve seen the boss destroy a group of 30+ players. Ugh. OH and there’s a timer on the event to defeat him WTF.
I heard that a smart necromancer can reflect back the AOE debuff that Balthazar gives to kill players instantly to kill Bal instantly too. Haven’t found a necro to do it though. Hope that helps somebody.

I thought I read something about sigils working differently underwater, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere. Was hoping there would be an official response or if someone could point out one, since I can’t think of a reason why they wouldn’t work.
Posted by: Streamline.4085
The lightning strike proc never seems to go off when using a speargun with a Superior Sigil of Air in it. Tested it with 80% crit rate on a thief. I’m not sure if this affects other sigils or weapons, but if anyone else has additional information they would like to add it should help.
My server is attacking Askalion gate. Enemy server has a catapult behind their gate. Enemy server shoots catapult at their own gate. The catapult’s splash attack damages all of us at the gate and pushes us all away from our rams. Wow! Ridiculous. Fix that please.
