Was shocked to discover this build wasn't already posted somewhere. It's not too terribly common, but it is more common than probably over half the builds posted here. Will have to look it over again, to make sure i'm not forgetting something, as well as decide which other tags to put it on it, before i move it to vetting.Pluto 10:37, 16 February 2008 (EST)

Body Blow/Exec Strike? — Rapta Rapta Icon1 (talk|contribs) 22:51, 17 February 2008 (EST)
Don't think I've ever really seen someone run either of those on a cleave warrior, and I'm not sure why anyone would. Pluto 03:29, 18 February 2008 (EST)
Meh, cleave in RA + TA doesnt add up to much damage...SoR/SH owns it. It's good pressure when you're going up against someone without a monk,but then again what isnt? 17:28, 18 February 2008 (EST)

Eviscerate > Cleave in PvP. Cleave > Eviscerate in PvE. Not enough spike power to be labeled for GvG. 23:11, 18 February 2008 (EST)

It's not a spike build. It's something you might run in a condi-pressure build, or something with a lot of physical pressure. Pluto 23:58, 18 February 2008 (EST)
I realize how this can be used as a pressure build, but how does this compare to the pressure that something like a Dragon Slash build brings? I have to admit though, I've never seen this run in GvG, and I usually LOL at the wars who bring it to RA. Staples 03:52, 19 February 2008 (EST)
I would still run Evis > Cleave in PvP and save the slots. --GoD Sig3GuildofDeals 08:46, 19 February 2008 (EST)

This concept even works with Whirling Axe spamming, which isn't that bad actually, when it comes to a pressure heavy team. Rickyvantof 08:49, 19 February 2008 (EST)

Like i said, not terribly common. Last person I've seen running it in GvG was Natures in [deer], with a version running dchop, FGJ, and death pact signet, about a month ago. Pluto 09:44, 19 February 2008 (EST)
Cleave is only better than Evis by being 3 adrenaline cheaper. That being said, if you get another condition on the deep wounded target so that DW can't be easily removed, Cleave Spam might out-pace the possible damage to a spike target than Evis would. But if the Deep Wound is removed then your time doing it was wasted. People love Eviscerate simply because it's Bar Compression without giving up much in return(And I love Evis too). 09:57, 19 February 2008 (EST)

Compared to all the other warrior builds ,this has only 2 skills that are different compared to ANY other warrior build, cleave and disrupting.Sexy Mallard 15:29, 19 February 2008 (EST)


wuts a pressure build i only know what spikes are sry — Skadiddly[슴Mc슴]Diddles 00:29, 21 February 2008 (EST)

They're that thing that got nerfed into oblivion by ANet outside of Hexes, which are pretty bad now too. — Rapta Rapta Icon1 (talk|contribs) 16:42, 21 February 2008 (EST)

Enraging Charge, maybe? I Am Jebus 17:59, 21 February 2008 (EST)

Enraging Charge is meh on axe warriors, unless you're running Rush as well, in which case you'd have to drop a utility skill, which is baed. --Hikari 19:41, 22 February 2008 (EST)

Why no agonizing chop instead of distracting strike? I generally like dismember + agonizing builds. —ǘŋƐxɩsƫ 13:46, 23 February 2008 (EST)

/agree, i think it should probably be in the main bar, considering distracting's recharge.ExtremeSigPic Extreme(contribs) 14:53, 10 April 2008 (EDT)
People actually use Agonizing Chop now instead of Disrupting Chop? get rid of distracting strike, theres better choice. someone needs to reorder bar, bull's strike shouldnt be on the res side of the spectrum.--Relyk 22:36, 26 April 2008 (EDT)
This moar liek it? Klumpeet 04:42, 27 April 2008 (EDT)
Dchop and d-strike is pretty much preference, not to question that. It's just that with dismembers 6 adr, you'd be spamming dw over the floor, and suprise suprise, agonizing is the exact recharge. You can just use it then, to interupt 2 casts and stuff, or just interupt the condition removal ect ect. Also, it's moar damage, and dmg owns. —ǘŋƐxɩsƫ 11:17, 19 May 2008 (EDT)
I agree with you, imo d-strike is better in this build just because it isn't a spike build, the use of energy over adrenaline is good because you can use it to disrupt the healing of your pressure. Compared to d-chop that you use primarily after spikes to disrupt last minute prots. But like you said its just preferance.→ You've been pwned.ExtremeSignPic Extreme( Ftl.)( Noobs.) 20:44, 19 May 2008 (EDT)
I like D.Chop for it's anti-resurrection ability. GLuck trying to rupt with D.Chop, though. It's not 1/2 quick-acting so you must rely on pure luck for rupting 1/4 spells. --BlazingBurdy 16:14, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
You realize the utter stupidity of what you just said? Go read it again a few times.-- 22:12, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Pressure meta

Is back. Also, Axe Rake is usable in this. — Rapta Rapta Icon1 (talk|contribs) 12:55, 9 March 2008 (EDT)


Or votewipe or something. There is really no point in running this anymore. In the rare case that people run a pressure build, you can always just run sword warrior if you really want to have something which constantly pumps out DPS. Cleave is really useless atm. --Crow 19:26, November 23, 2009 (UTC)

This might be a respectable build if cleave dealt about 10 more damage. It would feel a bit like spamming power attack without the energy cost. Alas, it's too weak without shock, dchop and good use of bull's ... but then another elite might be preferable. 18:31, December 30, 2009 (UTC)
