== Changes/Updates. ==
 
 
Updated/Improved build content. There is little need in AoF and GfTE in non-physical based party which is very common and even in that case those skills are carried around by another character or have minor importance at all. You primary goal with this build is maximum ability to mantain SY at all time. FGJ allows you to have constant stream of increased adrenalline which leads to better job done and great energy management as well. With more powerfully specced two attacks you have higher dps. Command attribute was lowered to 7 to meet the requrement of shield.
 
Equipment was updated. Added larger variety of insignia and rune choices, added mention of very important +1+3 leadership headpiece and rune of clarity. r7 shield was added. Larger variety of spears was added. High energy staff for AR was added. -20% shield mod was added, very important against low duration blinds.
 
You are probably going to revert it because of lack of talk page drama, game knowledge/expirience and your general lack of common sense or more harshely said autism but I ensist. --[[User:Anonimous.|Anonimous.]] 11:06, 5 December 2008 (EST)
 
:I don't have an r7 15 AL Shield, and don't feel like buying one like 80% of the pvxwiki users, tbh. Yes, we generally expect the best from equipment like a Rune of Superior Vigor, but low req weapons are less common and more expensive. Also, anyone that does buy an r7 15 AL Shield will probably use Orders, so Spear of Lightning won't be a great attack skill because of the damage type conversion. The bar does look better, though, tbh, but Spear of Lightning should be dropped and the r7 Shield is asking too much, imo.

::lol ur funny anonimous, those are all variant skills, u need anthem of flame on main bar so nubs can keep up aggressive refrain--[[Image:Relyk chtistmas2.jpg|20px]][[User:Relyk|<font color="red"><b>Christmas</b></font>]][[User talk:Relyk|<font color="green"><b>Relyk</b></font>]] 11:10, 5 December 2008 (EST)
 
:::To Mike:
 
:::If, 80% of pvxwiki cant afford r7 15AL shield (which is not expensive at all) doesnt mean that rest of gw community should. r7 15AL is the ideal equipment for this build, articles need to be kept to high standard. I will mention what to do if you dont have the shield in note section.
 
:::Good player would run Swift Jevelin in case of running with and orders hero or aegis chain. That is no rul;e though so generally SoL is better. I think of adding an optional slot of both though.
 
:::To Relyk:
 
:::You dont need to mantain AR outside of battle if the running time exceeds ~40-60 seconds. You can mantain it using +1+3 leadership headpiece and FGJ/Tntf very well if you want to as well as not losing ammount of dps. --[[User:Anonimous.|Anonimous.]] 11:43, 5 December 2008 (EST)
 
 
I'm glad someone finally had the balls to change this. The previous version was lolworthy. AoF, GftE... anyone who thinks those are good skills on an imbagon does not play one. Anyway, may I suggest "Fall Back" as an optional. I realize it doesn't help combat-wise, but it makes keeping up AR ridiculously easy, and you almost never have to wait around for TNtF to recharge. Also, zoom zoom in PvE is ftw. --[[User:Thc|Thc]] 12:00, 5 December 2008 (EST)
 
:Would not run Fall Back myself but it is worthy of optional section. --[[User:Anonimous.|Anonimous.]] 12:08, 5 December 2008 (EST)
 
::can i ask, why even bother having points in command? you've dropped "GFtE!", so you're bar doesn't make use of command at all, other than the shield. Tbh it would make mroe sense to drop your points into leadership, and just wing it with a shield. <span style="font-family: comic sans ms; font-size: 10pt;">'''[[User:Phenaxkian|<font color="#4F94CD"> ~ PheNaxKian</font>]]</span> <span style="font-size: 8pt;">[[User talk:Phenaxkian|<font color="#9400D3">Sysop</font>]]</span>''' 12:17, 5 December 2008 (EST)
 
:::15AL shield makes quite a difference from 0 spec shield. Having one more point in spear mastery is more important than having one less AL in your shield. --[[User:Anonimous.|Anonimous.]] 12:25, 5 December 2008 (EST)

Blows a lot of chunks without GftE. Swap it out for merciless tbh. -[[User:Auron|<font color="black">Auron</font>]] 05:09, 6 December 2008 (EST)
 
:or since you're probably already going to have lots of deep wound in the common meta, and Merciless spear is a giant tub of ass on paragon primaries, use Spear of Fury.

::And sacrifices ebon standard, which makes the skill's bonus damage look like a joke. Oh, and you'd still have a slot, since you had to dump the best skill on the bar for a subpar pve skill. Really not a smart idea. -[[User:Auron|<font color="black">Auron</font>]] 05:21, 6 December 2008 (EST)

::::Why we're dropping Anthem of Flame or Weariness I don't know, it's a hell of a lot more useful for keeping up AR outside of battle then wasting TNtF on it. And bring Spear of Lightning or Swift Javelin over Vicious. As Auron said, it blows big chunks without GftE--{{user:Guild of Deals/signature}} 07:14, 6 December 2008 (EST)
 
::::To Auron:
 
::::Your coment shows exactly how bad pvfail is.
 
::::On blank piece of paper you look at vicious attack with gtfe! IT GIVES YOU ALMOST CERTAIN CHANCE TO APPLY DEEP WOUND WOW AMAZING!!!!!! That was on piece of blank paper, you fail to see costs of having it on actual build. To have that combo on this build means drop skill that can apply 80-100 damage you can use again to have higher chance to deal 100 damage that you can benefit from only once. That is having less DPS and adrenalline sink against having higher DPS and obviously winning the game.
 
::::You may argue that GftE! is energy management but I crush that argument right away. SY! is being charged in 3-4 spear hits providing you with steady stream of energy with high ranks in leadership. What GtfE! would only do is take away adrenalline lowering your SY! spam efficiency. --[[User:Anonimous.|Anonimous.]] 12:35, 6 December 2008 (EST)

::::::You do not want to take GftE, especially in areas with lots of blocking. Theorycraft is nice (lol charge in 2 hits so EZ), but that's not always the case.

Cast Mending Refrain on as many players as possible and keep up by using AoF. Even if players don't use a skill to trigger the renewal, AoF ends after 10 seconds which will renew Mending Refrain. Obviously just use the rest of the build as normal. I havn't tested timing yet, so it could cause "SY!" to run out since you're not getting adrenaline while using AoF. AoF can be replaced with Anthem of Weariness to inflict Weakness instead of Burning. You can also use a Req9 Motivation Shield instead of Command.

Another fun thing, you can time SY with flurry. At R4 kurz/luz, SY last 5 seconds...well guess What. So does flurry.

::The opportunity cost of not taking a cruel spear/stunning strike/song of purification paragon is a strengthscythe/second earthshaker/etc. Since no other class in the game can bring spammable daze without sacrificing huge damage, it's actually not a terrible idea to bring a second (or third, or fourth, or maybe even fifth) paragon in your group. Even if all you do is stack cruel spear paragons, a good team will bring a bunch of different chants for lolable offense and defense. You're vastly underestimating the sheer damage a paragon brings - while it might not be quite as high as an aoe melee character being spoon-fed splinter, it's far from minimal, in addition to being ranged and having enough skill slots to stuff party support and utility into the bar.

== what skill would you recommend while working toward obtaining save yourselves!? ==
 
 
I am building up a level 20 paragon in my account, and have done medium/large portions of nightfall and GW:Eye of the North, but now I am focusing my attention on factions (welcome to cantha is my first quest) and then moving my way down to where I can pick up the Luxon/Kurzik specialty skill.
 
 
What skill could I put in place of save yourselves (or should I run a different paragon build altogether) until I get through the main factions city areas?
 
 
thank you

== Taking 9 Command just to meet shield req ==
 
 
Is nothing short of pointless. Seriously now, especially when you are sacrficing points in spear to do it. Having done more than enough monking for an Imbagon (who also took a major leadership for 14 in that) in PVE keeping them alive is a complete joke as it is (you know since you can practically ignore the other 7 players because they are as good as invulnerable and i heard Prot Spirit + Shield of Absorption is HARD).
 
 
Blah to the other people mentioning not worth taking more than 1 paragon, that couldn't really be more wrong, it's not worth taking more than 1 of this build, that I agree with... But when it comes to heroes as heroes make much better paragons than they do warriors and they'll stand in your honor ward all the time. Cruel Spear paragons do insane amounts of damage and if you throw orders and splinter weapons into the mix the damage your team build will put out will be anything but pitiful. Song of Purification / Expel Hexes paragons are also useful as they provide more cleanliness for your paragon without really sacrificing much in damage.

:::::::Using flurry works best, if not only, in a team with an orders hero. Orders means recharge in 2 hits means 6 energy every 2 hits meaning you can spam flurry and not worry about energy. But then again, with an orders hero you don't need IAS to keep SY up anyway. Nor is 33% needed at all, the 10-15 % from dwarven stability is more than enough to keep it up. Though there are advantages of flurry over AR, and that means no -20 armor and when you have died and get ressed in battle, you'll be able to start spamming SY faster because you won't need to have 25 energy to start with.

I recently started using this build on my paragon, and I don't know what it is, but it just seems to not be working correctly. Agressive refrain does not stay on, energy management sucks because there is none, damage is pretty bad (I know it's not intended to be doing huge amounts of damage, but people expect other players to mostly damage unless they are healers/etc.), and personally I don't like TNTF or SY, they just don't seem all that great.

== Some changes? ==
  +
Point 1: Flurry is always better than aggression. It says in optionals that it can replace aggression but not suggested for beginning paragons. 1st, wiki is supposed to store optimal builds, no? 2nd, how is it hard at all to use flurry? 3rd, faster ims is better obviously and not being squishy when you are the only player not buffed with save yourselves is ideal.
  +
Point 2: The damage provided by this build is very subpar, it is much more of a defensive build than a damage build, so why is spear mastery the highest attribute at 13? Imo lower it to 9 and bring leadership to 14, better e-management and longer lasting "There's nothing to fear!"
  +

  +
:::::::1s longer TNTF isn't worth decreased tab-space damage unless your team can't keep you up anyway (in which case you should probably bring a healer who knows how to push buttons). Flurry is weak because it decreases your damage dealt and drains a billion energy per second (which you should be spending on attack skills/ward honor/etc).
  +
:::::::Way too many people underestimate spear DPS. This is a build that provides enough defense to justify bringing only one healer for a lot of areas; increasing the duration of TNTF by one second isn't going to mean you can drop that healer. Since you can still tab around and do reasonably ridiculous damage (at range, no less!), there's no point in not building for such. Granted, it's not going to do much against 360AL targets, but again, the extra second of TNTF isn't going to help much there anyway, so you've got nothing to lose (and you should be using a specific team build for those kinds of areas, not this build).

Weapon Suggestion Edit

The equipment for this indicates a zealous, vampiric, or sundering spear tip. It seems to me that the build centers around SY, which is adrenaline based. Shouldnt the suggested tip then be furious instead to increase the use of SY? --Ascalon Destroyer 18:21, June 1, 2010 (UTC)

The assumption is that you're running this with an orders derv (or whatever's hip that includes dark fury) so that you're charging SY in two attacks, so it's not needed. Instead, more damage or energy management is good, depending on your variant of the build. — Maf so rational. 22:58, June 1, 2010 (UTC)
Tbh I think energy isn't a problem, and since you usually don't want elemental mods(for barbs,OoP, etc.) your best off going with vamp for extra damage Sharkytalk 23:06, June 1, 2010 (UTC)
I don't know, it depends what you're taking in the optionals. More energy-heavy things need more energy management. But do what you like. — Maf so rational. 04:37, June 2, 2010 (UTC)
I can think of a few variants that would want a zealous mod, but I think (though I don't have the math to back it up) that +3 (unmitigatable) damage per attack generally outdoes the increased damage from using your attack skills a bit more often.
That said, damage isn't the main focus of this character, so use what you have readily available. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{Bacon}} 03:33, June 3, 2010 (UTC)
If the assumption is that you are charging SY in 2 hits, you might as well remove zealous suggestion, because you really don't need more than 3 energy per hit (6 from leadership every 2 hits). Vampiric, sundering, heavy (if taking AoR) or cruel (when taking some form of DW like FTW!) are then far better options. 21:06, October 11, 2010 (UTC)

Why Anthems? Edit

TNTF is all you need to maintain AR. Why would anyone need an anthem? Especially if it means stopping your running every time you need to recast.

TNTF's recharge makes it annoying to use to maintain AR because it requires paying attention.
Beyond that, in a team with large numbers of physicals, AoF provides a bunch of damage and AoW provides fuel for Stunning Strike, etc, in addition to being weakness, which is powerful in and of itself.

This build needs to be revisited. Edit

I recently started using this build on my paragon, and I don't know what it is, but it just seems to not be working correctly. Agressive refrain does not stay on, energy management sucks because there is none, damage is pretty bad (I know it's not intended to be doing huge amounts of damage, but people expect other players to mostly damage unless they are healers/etc.), and personally I don't like TNTF or SY, they just don't seem all that great. Just my two cents. --Comander Guardian 22:00, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

you're suppose to use it with an orders necro generally. you can maintain AR with tn2f, but if you have trouble, bring anthem of flame. also tntf and sy probably dont seem amazing if you're not doing hm areas where enemies hit 100s and nuke the whole party--Relyk talk 22:17, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
FYI for every 40 amour points reduces damage by half. SY rocks---XTREME 22:43, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
This build is perfectly viable without an orders character. This build has great energy-management (6 free energy from SY every few seconds). AR is easy to keep up with TNTF and/or an Anthem. 18:28, August 4, 2010 (UTC)

Some changes? Edit

Point 1: Flurry is always better than aggression. It says in optionals that it can replace aggression but not suggested for beginning paragons. 1st, wiki is supposed to store optimal builds, no? 2nd, how is it hard at all to use flurry? 3rd, faster ims is better obviously and not being squishy when you are the only player not buffed with save yourselves is ideal. Point 2: The damage provided by this build is very subpar, it is much more of a defensive build than a damage build, so why is spear mastery the highest attribute at 13? Imo lower it to 9 and bring leadership to 14, better e-management and longer lasting "There's nothing to fear!" Point 3: Fall back should definitely be an optional, is great for any team no using cons. Smity 21:15, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

  1. flurry is a waste of energy, flurry is a waste of energy, and paragons aren't squishie
  2. atleast you're doing some damage, you don't need more energy, and 1 second longer isn't significant
  3. look in variants and stop being an autist
--Relyk talk 22:03, July 20, 2010 (UTC)
Agressive refrain -20 armor makes para's alot more squishy. I guess I am not seeing any reason to ever use aggressive refrain.. Even with flurry's damage reduction, it probably does more damage because of damage buffs like orders, EBSoH, barbs, MoP, etc. Smity 22:13, July 20, 2010 (UTC)
Also, you say "flurry is a waste of energy" and "you don't need more energy" in the same breath. Smity 22:43, July 20, 2010 (UTC)
let me rephrase it in a way that you won't take out of context: you dont need more energy from using shouts--Relyk talk 22:45, July 20, 2010 (UTC)
One second longer "There's nothing to fear!" is nice, and the extra energy from shouts helps if you think that flurry is such a drain on energy. Flurry is clearly superior, if it wasn't why does the build page say that flurry is for experienced paras? My whole point is that flurry should be main barred and aggressive should go to optionals for "inexperienced paras". Smity 22:50, July 20, 2010 (UTC)
Because an anon put it there. believe it or not, spears actually do damage! what you sacrifice to deal some damage is really insignificant if ever you used the build.--Relyk talk 23:11, July 20, 2010 (UTC)
To quote Racthoh, "WHEN I CAN'T SY WAND DPS MAKES ME WIPE!".
You're way too concerned about survivability. An imbagon with Aggressive up has (80 base + 16 shield + 10 insignia - 20 AR = ) 86 AL and ~600 HP. It's not like you're going to fall over in two seconds. If you're in hard mode and things are hitting you for a lot of damage, get your monk to put pretty much any prot on you.
1s longer TNTF isn't worth decreased tab-space damage unless your team can't keep you up anyway (in which case you should probably bring a healer who knows how to push buttons). Flurry is weak because it decreases your damage dealt and drains a billion energy per second (which you should be spending on attack skills/ward honor/etc).
Way too many people underestimate spear DPS. This is a build that provides enough defense to justify bringing only one healer for a lot of areas; increasing the duration of TNTF by one second isn't going to mean you can drop that healer. Since you can still tab around and do reasonably ridiculous damage (at range, no less!), there's no point in not building for such. Granted, it's not going to do much against 360AL targets, but again, the extra second of TNTF isn't going to help much there anyway, so you've got nothing to lose (and you should be using a specific team build for those kinds of areas, not this build).

I removed the note stating Flurry should only be brought with GFTE due to energy management. Flurry + SY = +2 net energy gain every 5 seconds... I realize that math is hard, and also that those of you using the imbagon for his EPIC SPEAR DAMAGE might skimp on the SY spamming, but I've never had energy trouble bringing flurry, and that means you shouldn't either.67.182.24.195 16:59, July 27, 2010 (UTC)

flurry should really be main bar... skakid9090 00:01, September 17, 2010 (UTC)

"For Great Justice!"Edit

Do you really need that on the mainbar? I seem to get away without the permanent adrenaline boost with furious spear & timing Sy to be charged just as Focused ends..

Vicious Attack &quot;Go for the Eyes!&quot; Focused Anger Ebon Battle Standard of Honor &quot;Save Yourselves!&quot; &quot;Stand Your Ground!&quot; &quot;There&#039;s Nothing to Fear!&quot; &quot;We Shall Return!&quot;

Occasionally I swap vicious attack & GFTE! for Fall Back & something helpful for HM. [ I use sweets as the IAS since AR has always seemed a bit clunky to use. --Chieftain Alex 23:18, July 27, 2010 (UTC)

SYG doesnt do anything with SY up and most don't want to blow sweets for casual pve. Life Guardian 23:23, July 27, 2010 (UTC)
You say you don't need FGJ because you can time furious spear to be able to cover the gap. Then you show us your build which doesn't have FGJ or furious.. 15:35, October 2, 2010 (UTC)
Well I posted it quite late at night :) plus I usually use a P/W build with cyclone axe. pew pew para with axe <3 --Chieftain Alex 22:09, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
