wut is energy? even with zealous it looks a little tight --AngelusEvertonangelus 00:03, September 10, 2009 (UTC)

NRA actually costs 7 energy --Frosty Mc Admin 00:04, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
And with a zealous scythe you get free attack spams and or free energy BLUE LAZERSEat ItUser-Baby Blue Lazer sig pic 00:05, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
omg im stupid. R/D wiith expertise. Disregard. --AngelusEvertonangelus 00:06, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
Its actually less energy intensive than using LR & Dwarven Stability. Dok 00:07, September 10, 2009 (UTC)

That's what I posted on the D/R Scythe Pet build a while back, if someone wants to comform I am a PvE god. --Frosty Mc Admin 00:28, September 10, 2009 (UTC)

We could turn this into a general R/D-Scythe/Pet page, but I cba to do it. Zyke-Sig 00:40, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
Actually, it's a 3 second change. I'll do it cause I'm bored. Zyke-Sig 00:45, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
Ups beat you to it. --Frosty Mc Admin 00:49, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
Pets...still aren't good? Life Guardian 00:52, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
Damn you Frosty. >.< Zyke-Sig 00:53, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
Tbh, Life, you drop 1 scythe mastery and 2 expertise to get another frontliner that deals pretty big damage and takes zilch damage, plus you can take pro pet attacks (mel's assault is <3) --Frosty Mc Admin 00:55, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
Taking mel's assault is like bringing a poorly specced splinter weapon on your own bar, when its so much better on a hero. You lose so much more than that tbh. Life Guardian 01:07, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
You loose 1 point in scythe mastery and the equivelant of 1 point in expertise... --Frosty Mc Admin 01:15, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
Life, you get another source of damage. That's all that really matters.--Ikimono"Mutton Chop Man"Monk-Paragon-icon 01:26, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
It's also a source of 25% ias small regen and a wtf take 33% less dmg tank BLUE LAZERSEat ItUser-Baby Blue Lazer sig pic 01:46, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
mel's assault is bad :/--Relyk 02:05, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
ursobad. how the fuck is mels bad? --AngelusEvertonangelus 02:53, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
~21 nearby damage for 5 energy is srs bsns? Life Guardian 02:54, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
nearby in PvE isnt good enough for you? --AngelusEvertonangelus 02:55, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
Mel's is bad for the same reason bringing shit like splinter on your own char is bad. Ohaider heroes. Life Guardian 02:58, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
Except, its completely different in the fact that you can't take melandru's assault on someone else? -- Drah 03:40, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
Except, its completely different because mel's is bad? Better off with scavengers because this build is fairly energy intensive even for a ranger. Life Guardian 03:42, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
I never said it was good, just that its different from splinter because you can't have a hero use it for you. Also scavenger's sounds good. -- Drah 03:59, September 10, 2009 (UTC)
I went from the principle of wanting aoe damage on the whole splinter comparison =\. The problem i have with scavenger's is that im running with a 14 spec splinter weapon and SoH atm...Hardly have a chance to get the energy because shit dies too fast. Life Guardian 04:02, September 10, 2009 (UTC)

(Indent reset) Just use zealous sweep or lyssa's assault. Unless crap is dying in one hit then you don't need emanagement. =\ Zyke-Sig 04:05, September 10, 2009 (UTC)

Or just use a zealous scythe...-- 04:13, September 10, 2009 (UTC)

Charm Animal

Don't you need charm animal to use this? It's not on the bar...

wtb skill updates. Life Guardian 06:49, September 12, 2009 (UTC)

lol i was wondering the same thing... nooob

Dwarven Stability + LR is better than this. RickyRicksawsmfacevantof 13:40, June 21, 2010 (UTC)

How? Even with max dwarven, its not maintainable. You're trading off a maintainable +33% IAS for some blocking, at the cost of the +3 health regen and more energy it takes for LR+DS? Orphus 14:49, June 21, 2010 (UTC)
battles are over before lr ends usually, regen is useless in pve, and 7/25 is the same as 9/30. you lose a (two) second on lr because att split with beast mastery though. using lr is still better than nra though because 33>25 and blocking is so much better than regen--Relyk talk 01:33, July 28, 2010 (UTC)
Scavenger Strike makes this build better. You'll never be able to use Ascan without it. Expertise is a really meh primary attribute in PvE. Dok 08:50, July 30, 2010 (UTC)

--Legendary Catrin 11:51, August 1, 2010 (UTC) It isn't, but Scavenger Strike is a must with asuran scan

If you don't take a pet, you can use Lyssa's Assault or Zealous Sweep for energy. The real advantage of this build is that you get an IAS'd pet which is also triggering physical buffs. ToraenTheJanitorToraenSig2 21:45, 2 August 2010 (UTC)

Skill changes

Makes Aura of Holy might and Emerite attack in this build useless.

There's a bunch of other scythe attacks to replace Emerite attack, but what would you replace AoHM with? 12:05, April 21, 2011 (UTC)
