This was a very serious build, got us like 500 fame on double weekend in an hour while we all yelled about being strong like a bear. --White 16:55, 2 June 2008 (EDT)WhiteSeal 16:43, 2 June 2008 (EDT)

ROFL, Yea I remember that! Ya'll yelled that out, it was funny, I can't remember if we beat you or not, I think we lost, not sure. Restore Condition.jpgNature 17:47, 2 June 2008 (EDT)

Of course you lost, who didn't? We were strong like bears. Only lost relics. We beat starcraft doing that ghey Trinecro meta crap.
Yeah...I think I remember running into you that weekend. Got rolled. 19:29, 10 June 2008 (EDT)

Defense for pansies.

This build is so strong, it needs no defense. Magebane is all the defense bears need, being strong.

Bears have innate defence vs water magic with their fur. --User:IbreaktoiletsTab Moo 16:45, 2 June 2008 (EDT)

Is so fucking leet, so strong, so bear. There are no variants. ONLY STRONG LIKE BEAR! <--- I actually rofl'd when I saw that. /FrosTalk\ 18:25, 2 June 2008 (EDT)

is the name a joke? is the build a joke? i dont get it... Looks like the fucking generic build these days anyway. Lots of mele and a rit to beef them up. --Healing Hands.jpgBim (talk|contribs) 21:28, 2 June 2008 (EDT)
It works. It's hard to run. It rolls shit in two minutes. There's really not much to say about it. White 19:36, 4 June 2008 (EDT)

Attention faggots

You don't understand Strong Like Bearway, stop pretending you do. Go die, you weak fucking butterflies. — Skakid 00:20, 3 June 2008 (EDT)

You put it up on PvX with the kind of writing that draws their/our attention. What were you expecting? --71.229 20:35, 3 June 2008 (EDT)

Clean up?

A lot of builds on the wiki have gone to hell. Strong Like Bearway? What the fuck. Is it a good build? yes. Is the joking appropriate? no. Make it serious. Put some REAL usage and REAL name and REAL variants. You might say that the build is straightforward and doesn't need all that, but still. Build articles are kept to a standard in the aspect of how good the build is. They should ALSO be kept up to a standard of content. I understand its funny and whatnot, but articles like this one should be fixed up. I'm not singling out THIS build. There are plenty of build with no usage and poor content. Pros do not use this site. Its only noobs and people who wish they were pro. Noobs will not understand wtf is going on with a lot of this. IMO, fix it up --Healing Hands.jpgBim (talk|contribs) 15:28, 3 June 2008 (EDT)

This is the meta name for the build. — Skakid 16:39, 3 June 2008 (EDT)
Being serious is for dumbasses--Goldenstar 19:53, 3 June 2008 (EDT)

This build is fine IMO. It gives advice on how to best run the build. Although some people may not understand DF honour, that's only a minor point, and everything else should be fairly easy to understand. Edwards 19:54, 3 June 2008 (EDT)

Needs some kind of snares. Pin down / cripslash is unreliable(lol draw + rc). —ǘŋƐxɩsƫ 08:39, 8 June 2008 (EDT)

Underworld farming is win. There are some KDs just in case. White 20:07, 9 June 2008 (EDT)
Points at all the teams carrying aura. I was talking about relic runs, you're not gonna win that if you don't have a decent amount of snares. —ǘŋƐxɩsƫ 05:24, 10 June 2008 (EDT)
We ARE serious... this build rolls teams with the powerful force of a buffalo, strikes swiftly as the eagle, and sunders the enemy like a bear's claws through prey's flesh. --Snakes on a Wii 02:07, 30 December 2008 (EST)


what is wrong with the description of this build?? Also, Ursanway is lame, not strong. Change the name to lame like bearway, now. --Super Igor 19px *ninja!!* 10:19, 4 June 2008 (EDT)

WTF does this have to do with ursan?--Goldenstar 15:51, 4 June 2008 (EDT)
Ye going by the name only I thought it was Ursan, but being in the PvP section... It's obviously not. Anyways, superior rune? No shock on what is a shock axe warrior bar? Idiotic (although somewhat funny) usage comments? 08:59, 5 June 2008 (EDT)
Can't agree on the funny part, but with the idiotic one. The writer _tries_ to be fun, but (s)he fails. Fusion 10:23, 5 June 2008 (EDT)

You don't need shock on every warrior bar using axe skills, you know. Conjure is better in this build. Edwards 20:43, 7 June 2008 (EDT)

I agree, this is uber DPS way, and it's for HA not Gvg. One extra KD will not save the world here.
This build is pretty low on good reliable snares. Having an unconditional KD would save the world in a relic run. 10:44, 10 June 2008 (EDT)

General hints about the build

A lot of people are saying, oh there's no hints how to run this.

Or...oh this needs moar snares.

Alright, here's the deal, yes the build lacks a little bit of hints in the main page. But the fact of the matter is it's all about being a good warrior. It's hard to sit here and type to people, bull's strike people from the rear, get ur evisc off while moving towards the front of the character to body block + finish off spike. Get more crits lalala.

The build holds up just fine on any map. Underworld, fetid, burial, pretty straight forward.

Relic runs just kill them. seriously, you should be able to whipe monks with channeling with magehunters if they are wasting their auras on runners. Most teams will only be able to run one relic if they whipe. if u absolutely need snares cause ur having trouble, switch out the memo for a rit with soh, put warding on rit, swap the e to e/p with make haste song no res and bring more reliable snares on your ranger.

cap points is simple, u have hard targets around the entire map, just let them split hard and kill things....golden is easy again, courtyard is just who can maintain on map, backline etc...antechamber more splitting...hoh is splitting on cap points, holding is holding, and relic runs u have same problems as other relic runs but u have to pressure from start, not wait until end where ur probably gonan get ganked.

if u need explanation on how to warrior this is not the place to look.

the fact is people overlook the dps of this build. the axe warrior is hitting for 90+ on crits vs 60 armor targets. at 16 axe ur crit % is so high it's almost like ur spiking without having to use ur adren skills. ur magehunter can keep a monk down long enuff if he quarterlocks for ur axe warrior to wreck. the sword warrior adds a lil backlining power if you need it while still pressuring out an RC with crippleslash. interrupts and pressure comes from ur ranger while ur fire ele puts high dps on them so they can't stand still and hit u. if they keeep kiting they aren't attacking giving you those few precious seconds to kill. it also forces movement for lots of bulls strikes as well as spirit hunting so ur monks don't explode. the memo is for extra KDz but is probably the most changeable bar in the build.

but like i said, if you don't have good wars no trip war build is gonna work. ur whole utility comes from them being strong, ie why this build was called strong like bear. they have to kno how to cancel frenzy while still knowing how to tank. if they can't take dmg ur going no where with this build.

it's got potential to hold but unlike many other gimmicky builds i see on pvxwiki, this one takes a little bit more skill, just like DF frontal warriors. pretty much chizu and champ led the team.

neways...enuff of my rant, and i kno i'm gonna get flamed for being a newb but o well , pz out The preceding unsigned comment was added by Thingermahjig (contribs) .

Guess what, your rit got buttfucked, change it right? Brandnew. 12:36, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

wow you actually understand HA. that's a rare quality these days. — Skakid 02:15, 17 June 2008 (EDT)
On another note, since it's mostly new players on PvXwiki, I think it's fair to say that a good warrior can get pretty far in HA no matter what rank they are. Good callers are few and far between, most people just hit C+space then control click the name. If you learn how to not be that guy you'll be good. -05:38, 25 June 2008 (EDT)

There's no way this would ever kill or stay up for more than a minute or two in the current meta--GoldenGoldenstar.JPGStar 20:19, 25 December 2008 (EST)


why is this on wiki? this is terrible. jsut because a BM posts a build doesnt mean it should be on wiki. in a primarily offensive meta this would never live (no defense). on relic or capture points this has no snare (pin down, but loldraw or RC or FF). honestly, stop sucking up to the higher ups on this site.

u mad? — Skakid Rally- kupo!S9M.png 22:04, 27 December 2008 (EST)
It's on wiki because it's strong and brave. One of the problems with putting it up is that those who lack the wisdom of the eagle cannot see the strong bear spirit in this build. --Snakes on a Wii 02:04, 30 December 2008 (EST)
