Re: Shadow Warrior as bad as they say?

Other Question when Sw is so Bad why i see so many? First, you may "see so many" because of "cognitive bias" i.e. you are looking for them so you see them. Second, they are the only archer class on Order and a lot of people like playing archer classes regardless of their actual viability. Third, th...

Re: Any chance for pugs vs pugs in Cities?

A completely random queueing matching system would certainly alleviate some of the PUG vs premade issues and the meta vs non-meta issues while not addressing the population issues. However, as noted this is an MMO and a gear grind MMO at that. The established guilds (side doesn't matter) don't actu...

Re: Spawning in the keep while outer door is tagged

Actually I would be totally okay with this IF (and only IF) there was some kind of zone-wide counter mechanic to zerging down the keep that forced the attackers to pay attention to the rest of the zone instead of solely concentrating their forces at the keep. It was attempted before by strengthening...

Re: [SM] AOE punt in most players hands is detrimental to Order

Hey, if you want to advocate we change "Gusting Wind" into "Cyclonic Trap" and make it into an AOE pull instead then I'll support you ...

Love being crashed out of this SC one out of every 5 matches or so, and then getting to sit around being able to do nothing for 10min at no fault of my own. Quality A#1 testing.
Dude, read the TOS.

You ARE the tester. If you can't handle it, this is not the game for you.

Re: Shadow Warrior as bad as they say?

My alt is a SW, 40/61. Some personal observations and opinions up to this point: ... Assault, especially at RR70+ where you don't have to choose between Shadow Sting and Shadowstep, is probably the #2 best solo roaming spec in the game, only behind DPS Shaman. Outstanding single target burst that r...

Re: Tank in RvR

Tanks are, by far, the most team dependent archetype in the game. Fortunately for them they are also one (or the) most desired. So option #1 is join a group/warband. That said, I am a soloist by nature (even on my tanks) so here is what I tend to do and seems to net me 8-12 medallions per zone plus ...

Re: [SW] A Fellow new SW in Need of a few builds

It is crazy that Split Arrows has a damage malus on it when it has to go through the most common mitigation in the game. Meanwhile Radiant Burst (+ Arcing Power) for AM turns them into a self-healing one-button AOE spammer with much, much better damage. And, chuckling to themselves, Engie just say "...
