Omigawa Notes

Do not run this build. The absolute only advantage to this build is the deep wound (granted, which is a huge benefit, but not worth the other crappy skills) You do not run sun moon without increased adrenaline gain or conjure x. It is a waste of a skill.

The damage of this build is crappy compared to a much simpler sword build : Galrath Slash | Silverwing Slash | Dragon Slash | For Great Justice (You get +42 damage every single hit. This is the most damage you will get from a warrior. If you don't like the cooldown on FGJ bring Enduring Harmony [p])

Are you kidding? Deep wound and bleeding spam > galrath/silverwing spam. This build is the absolute best warrior builds in terms of pure pressure damage. Besides, for great justice is just a bad skill. Enduring Harmony is bad too. The combination is also bad. For 15 energy, you get 50% increased adrenaline gain two-thirds of the time? --Edru viransu 21:20, 12 June 2007 (EDT)
Sun and Moon is a staple in any dragon slash build. Dragon slash makes all your adrenaline skills 5a effective. Sun and Moon drops that to 4a which is is significant. This build is the standard dps machine template that people use in GvG. It's strong but vulnerable to disruption (missed dragon slash is horrible) and it takes a long time to build that initial charge making it weak in splits.--Symbol 05:19, 19 June 2007 (EDT)
For great justice is actually very good now that it's been buffed. On this bar, it makes dragon slash fuel itself. That said, Omigawa's posted build is still terrible. NO warrior should ever run without deep wound. EVER. Even if it's a random deep wound like a retarded steady stance build. Sun and Moon Slash is still good on this bar, because it's still a (slight) adren gain, works as a +30 damage or so attack, and goes through wards, aegis, or guardian. Pluto 03:24, 29 August 2007 (CEST)
FGJ is fail on DSlash because spamming Dslash is useless if you're not doing it just to spam the rest of the bar. --Edru viransu//QQ about me/sysop 03:26, 29 August 2007 (CEST)

Use Enraging charge first, barbarous slice for bleeding, after gash for deep wound, dragon. Try to cast tiger stance after barbarous. You can change endure by some self-healing if you want.

Because the standard dragonslash is better? --Edru viransu 20:04, 2 July 2007 (CEST)

Are u kidding...This one is better.. I have tested the two builds and this one is better..I never need adrenaline with this build and with the other one yes... And I killed so many people including normal dragonslasher. So **** **

Fascinating, /yawn, the last argument is best (so **** **). You cannot make chain of adrenaline attacks either. You need to attack with no skills as well, even longer (S&M give +1 adrenaline in result). Endure Pain is sooo godly skill... And of course you can pwn all enemies, except those who are kiting. Btw sign yourself after you write something on talk pages (second pic from right) --DragonLord 16:15, 3 July 2007 (CEST)

Let me analyze your build and point out some of the worst flaws in it. You have barbarous slice. You have tiger stance. You have endure pain. You have Silverwing Slash. You don't take advantage of Dragon Slash at all. You don't have frenzy. You don't have frenzy. You still don't have frenzy. --Edru viransu 21:03, 3 July 2007 (CEST)

Dragon slash is unquestionably the highest dps sword build, and is arguably the best mobile warrior pressure build in the game. That said, I tested your variation in RA. Compared to the posted cookie-cutter, all I have to say is: It sucks.

With the standard cookie-cutter build on the main page, you can hit attack skills continuously with only one autoattack in between your sun and moon and your dragon slash. Sun and Moon is necessary and better than the above because (1.) the double strike has warrior strength bonus (2.) is more likely to crit on BOTH strikes and (3.) decreases the time before you need to use another dragon slash. Also, if you haven't noticed, sever, gash, and sun and moon has superior dps to barbarous, gash, silverwing BECAUSE TWO STRIKES = TWO HITS OF VAMP. I'm sorry, but if you don't know how to take advantage of vampiric weapons' dps bonus, then you aren't a high level pvp warrior. Speaking of which, endure pain is NOT a viable skill for PvP, and RE:Frenzy, I must echo Edru above. No frenzy = ftl. By the way, you say you never need adrenaline... well, I'm sorry, where were you playing this? To even get a decent amount of pressure going you need to hit at least 5 autoattacks, and even after you have to hit one autoattack AFTER THE DRAGONSLASH to do it again. The only condition where I could see this working, even as a PvE build, is if there's a spirit of enfuriating heat around. And I'm sorry, that only exists in PvE Kourna, where the cookie-cutter dragonslash owns even more.

ON ANOTHER NOTE, I discovered the beauty of this build independently while getting my warrior through factions. It's now my favorite build to run in AB and TA, particularly when it's backed up by orders. Sun and Moon + vamp weapon + orders = pwnt.

--Kaelor 14:07 20 July 2007 (CEST)

Is it just me or are people ignoring the fact that you still take DOUBLE DAMAGE when you use frenzy. Personally I prefer using Flail. The 33% less movement might be a bit on the harsh side, but at least I don't die from one well coordinated strike while Flailing my opponent. I find Frenzy a bit overrated compared to other skills. FenrirOfSleipnir 23:04, 21 August 2007 (CEST)

I have died maybe once while in Frenzy in PvP(I die a lot frenzying in pve... but my warrior's got starter armor and is level 9 or so...). I warrior a lot, and use Frenzy whenever not running a hammer build. --Edru viransu//QQ about me 23:09, 21 August 2007 (CEST)

For Great Justice now viable?

With the recent buff to FGJ, I feel it should now be incorporated into the build. Probably take out Protector's Strike for it. Imagine the power of Dragon Slash spam.Freakonut 14:45, 25 August 2007 (CEST)

You are right for PvE. For PvP, the strength of this is the Bleeding and Deep Wound spam fast enough to outpace an RC monk and a drawbot. Also the spamming of damaging attacks helps too, but the condition pressure is the biggest part. --Edru viransu//QQ about me/sysop 20:22, 25 August 2007 (CEST)

Barbarous Slice Gash Sun and Moon Slash Dragon Slash Protector&#039;s Strike For Great Justice Enraging Charge Resurrection Signet

It's just a simple variation of the build. The main strength compared to the other build is that you can get away your Barbarous directly. By using Enraging Charge and then For Great Justice just before hitting the target you will get 6 adrenaline which is enough for Barbarous Slice to start of the chain. Then you shouldn't have much problem following up with the attacks and repeat.

No cancel for frenzy is fail. Enraging Charge is not a frenzy cancel. Enraging charge is To The Limit, not Sprint. Also, no SaMS means you really fail outside of FGJ. Perma Dslash is for pve. --Edru viransu//QQ about me/sysop 22:31, 27 August 2007 (CEST)

why use frenzy man. tiger stance has a longer recharge granted but if u keep canceling frenzy ull be using less time within the 33% attack speed. frenzy ftl, well not all the time but it can be pretty devastating getting hit by invoke lightening, rodgorts, double dragon or basically anything while in the stance bcuz u cant always tell when something is targeting u obviously. but this build cant be considered to have dps enuf to kill something that has moderate self heal. shadow refuge at rank 8 basically owns this dps here. this is good with elemental pressure tho or some good interrupt. but ya i suggest using something other than frenzy.. it not only can devastate a tank it can drain ur energy if keep reaplying then canceling. i think the biggest problem is that this is in ab without some really good dps. and this cant cap a thing btw. no heal and no armor boost and no aoe :( overall i think this build should be in the good category. its good in a group of guys but otherwise not good.ViM Mizzouman 20:28, 28 August 2007 (CEST)

Again, lern2cancel. There is a reason why you won't see David Holtzmann or other top-level warriors die in Frenzy. This has amazing DPS. Also, sticking together is the most effective way to AB, and besides, it's AB. Who cares about AB?

Sever Artery is redundant after first hit

Since you're using Dragonslash to help spam skills, why're you taking Sever Artery? It does bleeding and nothing else. Gash does some further damage, and reapplies deep wound. Personally I find reapplying a condition without further effects irritating. Take Eviscerate over Dismember, etc. I prefer Galrath, Sun and Moon, Silverwing, Dragonslash. Though that leaves me thinking, why not just a dragonslash spam with 15 swordsmanship, FGJ and IAS? Thats my thoughts on this. Ritsukaplz 01:11, 28 December 2007 (CEST)

Okay, important point about dragonslash: you're there to spam sever-gash minispikes. Dragon Slash every hit is a horrible idea. If you want to do good DPS, just run a axe or a hammer or a scythe. --Edru viransu//QQ about me/sysop 20:26, 28 December 2007 (EST)

Frenzy and Dragon Slash

I guess I am a noob for asking this, but why Frenzy? You say to cancel it, but I can never cancel it in time before taking considerable damage. I am not saying frenzy is bad, but how am I supposed to anticipate damage all the time while conctrating on other things? Please suggest something. And using FGJ and Dragon Slash to spam dragon slash repeatedly is working pretty effectively damage-wise, is that how I should use it? Cecil 16:51, 27 May 2008 (EDT)

The easiest way to determine when to cancel Frenzy is by looking at the damage monitor. If you already see two or more skills it's better cancel. If you know the skills or builds better you can predict what skills will be used on you for example if you got Blinding Surge you will likely get Lightning Orb too. ~ ĐONT*TALK 17:22, 27 May 2008 (EDT)
Just cancel it when you see a warrior attacking you or about to attack, or when something ranged starts to attack you. It's a good idea to cancel it if you see something like Lightning Orb being cast in your direction too. --Ibreaktoilets SignatureTab Moo 17:30, 27 May 2008 (EDT)
Its how you use frenzy, not how u gain adrenaline. You use frenzy only for a short amount of time, it basically depends on how lucky you are if you take heavy damage. Players use it cause its the most advanced IAS. Except for Hammer War's they use Fail cause they KD The preceding unsigned comment was added by (contribs) .

Archive - Take Two

Conjured Cripslash deals as much damage, and can Cripple, and because of it, Dslash has been replaced by Cripslash in most of PvP. ــмıкεнaшк 16:59, 14 October 2008 (EDT)

Dragon Slash is an overated skill in PVP. just run Battle Rage and you will get better success... Jjberks 19:51, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
I don't believe Warrior builds should be archived unless they are hit with nerfs or become completely outdated, since there is one primary objective for a warrior-kill stuff, and while some casters can fall out of the meta due to buildwars, a warrior's job will always be there. And this isn't completely outdated since it is still useful for recharging the sever-gash combo quicker for pressure. I'd rather keep it in Good, where it is now, instead of Archiving it because it isn't totally inferior to Cripslash, so it deserves a spot in the Build database.--TheHunger 20:08, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
Well, if it drops to Other, it should be archived. I'll ask for a vote wipe first, though. ــмıкεнaшк 20:12, 14 October 2008 (EDT)

This needs fucking archive. You can say warrior builds blablabla didnt got nerf, but if nobudy bothers to run it anymore it's outdated. Like this. Cripslash adds versility, an interupt and actually about the same damage through conjure. —ǘŋƐxɩsƫ 05:12, 15 October 2008 (EDT)
