Thanks for the feedback! I like unscathed contender because you can pre-cast Focus 5 and Mace 2 and then teleport in for instant burst, then cycle through mace 3, sword 3, and torch 4 (time it after their dodge).
I’m pretty sure Aegis gets removed even if you have focus 5 shield up (not sure about mace 3) but blind should still work to keep UC up.
When has dwarfs as playable been rumored? That could be cool though if in next years living story we found a way to restore the dwarves from stone to flesh, could tie in to Primordus also.
Stop with the bows. Javelin is the way to go. Bows on guards is silly. All the other weapons on guard are silly except warhorn(offhand anyways) and axe(no, the stupid ranger throwing axe doesn’t count as ranged).
But I NEED Aether/Azureflame… Plus Javelin sounds single target, we need a ranged weapon with good AoE.
I don’t understand when people will realise that shouts = bad for roaming.
Agreed on your other points, but a utility bar with JI/SyG/SY is strong (unless necro). The reduced damage from protection uptime plus the boon heals feel comparable with the sustain of burst med heals. Hammer seems more important in this type of build though for more control since generally your burst won’t be as strong. Great build to hang out around cliffs with though.
Signet of Mercy should be changed to give passive 25% run speed and active ~5 sec cripple!
Focused Mind (X) in Valor gives a little over 4 seconds of fury when you use a meditation, and with the short cooldown on Smite Condition and the teleport to target on JI it’s fairly easy to take advantage of it. A solo shout build will work, as over 20 seconds of protection + stability is nice, but without JI you really have no way to reliably choose your battles.
Also you need shout cooldown and PoV then have to choose between 2h mastery or EM. EM will give you a lot better sustain but having GS3 up close to every time you swap is really good also to keep pressure up. The meditation build just all-around works, with shout build I feel like there are too many compromises.
I was only 49 and stopped doing fractals a long time ago, don’t care about level reset. Not sure why those at 80 care as the whole point I assume was personal challenge and assured rewards. Surely by this point they had the rewards they wanted, and you can’t take away what they already accomplished so…
I like shouts more than meditations generally (except JI, <3) as you have better access to protection and SyG is too good. I felt the spec I had to go to make it work made damage subpar to what meditations offer though.
Current favorite roaming build is 10/5/30/20/5 (II,I-X-XII,VI-IX) since you can drop the 10 points from Honor and trade PoV for FW and also have easy access to fury. Pure of Heart is underrated too, hope the planned buff goes through.
Main reason to go meds over shouts though is that it is almost suicide to roam without JI, and that leaves you one utility short in a shout build.

One time after killing SB I got an exotic in the big chest AND the popup chest, Magmaton and a dagger with sup sigil of corruption.
RoJ is one of the better skills we have imo, best change would be for it to remove stealth. That and sword 3 make it easy to see where targets stealth/port to also.
So what’s the pointof this topic?
Well it’s a nice idea for absent/newer players or to reminisce since the Living World boards get archived.
Seems fine in pve, it was a huge help in the candidate trials.
Anyone know when the new patch updates usually are? Wondering if I will have time to finish achievements after this maintenance.
Would be nice but I really can’t believe that guardian would get this massive amount of buffs.
Why not wait until near the end of the event to buy any coffers since the normal ones drop so much? Out of the first 22 that dropped for me, I got – 1 jade ticket, 1 warm potion, 1 risen knight mini, 4 fireworks, and some candy. Though looking at everyone else’s experience, I now know I got super lucky.
What I’m try to figure out as a n00b right now is how can I access all 8 of my skills in a timely manner on my keyboard while still maintaining effective evasion? Even further, how can I squeeze in the bind to switch between weapon sets after mapping out 8 keys in close proximity to my left hand?
Put dodge on mouse and use esdf for movement.
If you want to see AH give you mass HP back equip hammer get larger symbols and group with other melee. That aside from using Empower with a few friendlies near.
There should at least be a way for the rng to tell what weapons you already have and make those a smaller chance to get. I got 4 focus in a row, then when I finally got something different it was a trident (which I already had 1 of as well).
I’ll switch to Unscathed in pve anytime there’s no need for consecrations/spirit shield. It’s pretty easy to keep up Aegis when you are ranging in boss fights, and even when not there’s no other trait in 10 Virtues that’s much better. I wish Aegis wouldn’t break before focus 5 though, would provide some nice extra burst.
I think it’s like that due to the Living Story. I believe if you are in an order he will let you through though, so you may have to wait until this Living Story is over or until you get high enough level to join an order.
The RNG is most likely fine as the higher fractal level you are the better chance you will have to get a skin. It’s the fact that fotm is gated at 50 now that’s the real issue, once we have access to more AR and the overly buffed agony scaling is gone those who advance high enough should have much less problems getting skins.
I’ve only received that on accessories and -maybe- weapons, but never on armor. But I’ll take your word for it. Good catch if that’s the case.
I’ve got a heavy chestpiece with cavalier stats in the bank so they do drop.
Unless you want to have to constantly rebuy the utility infusion then why would you put it in an amulet you want to infuse? You may as well buy a second amulet, one for fractals/agony and one for utility world pve/dungeons. There isn’t a reason to infuse an amulet with a utility infusion in it that I can see.
Forest Grub, not in to collecting mini pets but had to get that one.
The Grove! So many beautiful places.
Yep, the secret area you have to swim to on bottom level would be perfect.
You are basically on the server in all respects besides wvw so naturally if a lot of people are guesting overflow will be more common.
That charr looks like a rooster.
Since when did soldier runes fail to wipe a condition? Never seen that occur.
Would be neat to see skill graphic changes like the dreamer has.. ie guardian shooting comets with the 1 skill and smite raining meteors instead of ‘spirit fists.’
It might be the new permanently uncontested one they just added. It’s at the very bottom of the map, below that ship.
Sounds like you had 20 in virtues and respec’d, lost the boon duration you were used to.
Traded all the ugly clothes for gifts to see if I could get the unbreakable bell or endless tonic. Not sure whether to delete the frames and cogs though since I sold all the mats for gold, probably will.
I don’t think it matters score-wise what notes you hit when as long as you hit the note you are supposed to when you should, so they are probably just messing around.
The crafting npc is the most annoying, seems like LA doesn’t have one though. I noticed the charr/human kid playing behind the bank got sound turned off though.
Even with soldier runes, using a shout almost killed me as it stripped vulnerability first. Used another and got the confusion off, luckily it didn’t get reapplied.
It does count the monthlies.
Weird, I only have 250 cogs by now oO
The event is bugged for some people, diminishing returns kick in so you might only get 50. A dev posted though and said they were looking into it so if that’s the case you should receive what you are owed eventually.
Turn off auto-target in the options menu.
I think we should wait until Tixx arrives at LA to speculate. It’s possible you will only be able to craft 2 of 5, but it’s also possible you will be able to get cogs and other materials from Toypocalypse daily. Who really knows at this point.
How you get the 1st 3x might from purging flames + focus 5 ?
How you get 7x might from hammer 2 + f1 + save yourselves ?
Shield of Wrath is a blast finisher so if you activate it in a fire field you will combo area might. Mighty Blow is also a blast finisher, VoJ give might with five points in virtues, and SY gives might as one of the boons.
Your Virtue of Justice does burn every 5 hits, that flame tells you how close you are to the attack that burns.
I havent noticed any issues with jumping on platforms.
Is it just on the JP areas?
It’s already been fixed.
You other races are just jealous of us sylvari, too bad you will never be tasked with anything so glorious as are those of us on a wyld hunt.
I changed the title to reflect that it is a personal opinion.
But didn’t you know people on the forum speak for the majority of players? The people have spoken, no new content from here on out!
1.) Torch scales with power instead of Condition damage. The 4th skill can crit for 6k on a good power build.
While mostly true, if you don’t activate Zealot’s Flame to Zealot’s Fire then it does a normal burn that scales off condition damage.
You are an unhappy forum user, I am a happy forum user. How exactly are you figuring out which one of us is the minority? The fact of the matter is way more people play the game than post on the forums. I know you want your voice heard but you don’t need to be on a pedestal to do it.
Pretty sure all those abilites are on the 4th rune, so you wouldn’t be able to have two.
