Trust me, there is no shortage of 100b warriors.

I made a Warrior in 5 days (too long time just because i was looking for Armors, Sunspear elite and kurzik armo) so its better start 1 instead looking for anothers builds.Btw the best profession to replace warrior is SIN and with critical Hit deal a good amount of damage.

Glyph of Concentration or Unseen Fury?

People said for maintank they found using unseen fury easier to control kd and rupts. but does this apply to terra's 1 and 2?

Main tank

Can i just say ive never seen a pug use the main tank build on this page? Wouldnt it be much smarter to just use the t1 build without urals so not only can you mt, but back up t1 and t2. --B R O Z On Tour 00:58, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

Can i just say you've never played with anyone decent? =\ Life Guardian 01:00, December 7, 2009 (UTC)
Promoting A/E is bad because 90% of retarded MT's use Stoneflesh, which is completely unnecessary and has a long cast time. Since most players are too dumb to do fancy pulls with bonds by using sliver, there is only one advantage to it, and it doesn't really save any time. Andy 01:06, December 7, 2009 (UTC)
Fancy pulls with sliver? :o explain plox. Life Guardian 01:08, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

Channelling is also a much less annoying method of energy management. - AthrunFeya Athrun snow sig 01:23, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

All Mts that played with me had Stoneflesh aura on build..first of all lot of pugs dont pick you if you use A/Me build,Second Stoneflesh is a good Anti-damage skills and it let perma stay between mobs without take any damage and that is good because main team have more time to organize attack.
For Energy Menagment there is Gliph of lesser energy that reduce the cost of Ebon Battle Stendard of Honor + Stoneflesh to 0..With A/E build you can use Sliver Armor and you can solo the wolf in forest and maybe that near rastigan too. Light Athena 15:28, December 7, 2009 (UTC)
Really, we don't need more proof that pugs are bad. - AthrunFeya Athrun snow sig 15:45, December 7, 2009 (UTC)
Lol we not talking about pugs but skills that work better and safer...or its hard click 4/5/6 when mobs are balled? a question...who kill wolf in forest?All main team..if yes need clear all area around wolf and this is a waste of time -.- (with A/Me build perma cant or you havent see the skills?No attack skills in that bar)..."Pull and kill the nearby wolf. The perma and warrior will need to Death Retreat back to the rest of the team." <<<No one do this,Perma just use Sliver and wolf die in seconds...Feigned Neutrality shut down if you use a skill and dont cover from all damage..Stoneflesh cover from all damage + trap damage..I juts mean,MT is not T1 or T2, he need pull and ball and need to not get a lot of damage..thats all, peace. Light Athena 16:22, December 7, 2009 (UTC)
Actually, I was talking about skills that are more efficient and effective which are unfortinately not used because bad players are bad (and your little speech supports this fully). A good team will spike and jump down in the same time it takes sliver to kill but the run will be sped up in general because permas aren't preoccupied with pointless slow-casting skills such as Glyph and Stoneflesh. So what if Glyph fully covers two spells? What about the rest of the skills you are using? Channelling is equally, if not more effective. Despite Feigned not reducing damage to 0, it does reduce it significantly and also heal, usually giving a net gain in health. - AthrunFeya Athrun snow sig 16:41, December 7, 2009 (UTC)
First of all, a/me is faster because the pull is done before the main team finishes bridge. Spike also takes less time than dropping SF to get down. Second, you say you need defense. Explain to me how I can mt easily without stoneflesh, feigned or any heal besides dc and ee? Lastly, wtb grammar. Life Guardian 17:03, December 7, 2009 (UTC)
Bad ppl are bad with this build or with all other on this point nothing to say,you right..for other things i not agree..Gliph cover just 2 skills,ok you right 100%..btw you dont need cast all your bar so you dont need menage your energy..MT job is ball and put EBSoH, stop,so he use Paradox/SF/Gliph+ EBSoH and Stoneflesh Aura and his job is done.100b job ,after this, is spike fast (usually 1 whirlwind is enough) so MT dont need recast all again..The problem,the real problem, is that pugs need to be sure to made it, want skill to reduce damage and skill for cover other failer sins.(PS:im not american so sry for grammar :\) Light Athena 17:24, December 7, 2009 (UTC)
Basically, a/e is fine as long as you don't bring stoneflesh. A/me is still superior though. Life Guardian 17:54, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

Just like to say, Light Athena. It is extrememly easy to indent, just one more colon than the person you are replying to. Ofc, I'm starting a new mini topic so don't tell me to indent. ----~Short~ 17:46, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

All this to say that you have to take an A/E build for puggies or they won't understand what to do : "WTF ARE U DOIN ?! DIDNT U KILL THE WOLF ?! U NOOB !!11!1". That's why some of them are kicking death's retreat out for sun and moon. The thing I like about playing A/E with them is that I have the time to kill rangers in forge and wood spirits/spiders in forest. I just love PUGs :) Hair Fetish Man 11:31, December 8, 2009 (UTC)
Sorry but that is a different problem..if i play 100b i take all "normal" skills,Death's Retract included..if needed i can kill wolf and go back to rejoin main team so all ppl that say that dont really know the job..thats all. Usually MT take sliver to kill wolf(S) and "COVER" noob T1/T2 if needed and maybe team can still complete the run.I dont know why all thats problem on MT,A/E is common and a lot of ppl use work?Yes, so stop..whats then problem?All Builds work good if know how to use it well.

Manly Paras

So basically you sacrifice armor and emanage/faster recharge/condition removal(Air of Superiority) for the added damage from burning, which won't even be all that much since a W/A would deal more damage than a P/W with his sword. Or am I getting something wrong here and is the burning required for some mad hax tactics? And even if it is, we still have the main question to adress: does the burning really warrant swapping strong wars for homosexual paragons? 10:19, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

I'm sure the t1 could be a A/E but I was not on the run and don't have much knowledge of some of these builds. I was just on GWGuru and saw someone asking for the FoWSC record. Is this now the record?...::: Fuz :::... Elite 4 is srs bsns! 14:54, January 4, 2010 (UTC)

Warrior Equipment

Ive been trying to learn the 100b build but i cant find any equipment information could anyone that got any information add it to the article??

Most of the mods aren;t listed because they dont really matter. You need:
  • Zealous or Vampiric sword (with 15^50, +20% damage vs undead/skeletons to maximise damage - otherwise a 15^50 and +30hp will do).
  • Strength shield, (+30hp if you like or +10 vs lightning/fire damage).
  • Sentinel's Insignia, vitae runes, superior absorption, minor swordmanship (on swordmanship headpiece) and minor strength elsewhere, superior vigor.
Detailed enough? - AthrunFeya - 19:43, January 11, 2010 (UTC)
Yes thank you :)

T3 FoWsc job

In theory 1 warrior does enough damage to kill mobs right? I ran with only 1 warrior and worked out fine, did faster run then normal pugs. I ran as i A/E sliver with IAU but seems that A/ME works fine to, although you dont need to kill the shepherds. so A/E works faster i think

This build is aimed at pugs, I think it is best if we keep anything more complicated off this page. Andy 19:03, January 17, 2010 (UTC)
One war with splinter can spike any mob. The problem is that pug mts can't ball, pug 100b can't spike, pug mops can't call good targets, and pug rits can't put splinter on the warriors. Of course running a t3 is faster(a/me being the fastest option), but pugs truly cannot handle one war spiking. Life Guardian 20:06, January 18, 2010 (UTC)
True but if you change the warrior build, so it doesnt have IAU but BUH he does enough damage, to even spike unballed mops. Just did run, 12 mins, could go faster. Even with A/E t3 worked out great. Had 4 pugs in group, which MoP and 100b were
More damage=/=more range. I'm assuming you mean 12 min mt? Life Guardian 17:24, January 20, 2010 (UTC)
You could maybe mention the t3 and route, since its pretty well known now. Just drop the build and usage at the bottom and say something like "more experienced groups should drop a manly warr and take this" - AthrunFeya - 19:00, January 20, 2010 (UTC)
I'll get this done tomorrow :) but i found out something new to. Why cant you just kick the MoP out of the team. And put MoP on main tank? saves a spot for t3, and pugs can run with 2 manly spikers to? Wouldn't that be a nice solution? ^^

<pvxbig> [build prof=A/N cur=12 dead=3 sha=12+1+3][Deadly Paradox][Shadow Form][Tryptophan Signet][Weaken Armor][Mark of Pain][Signet of Corruption (Kurzick)][Feigned Neutrality][Death's Charge][/build] </pvxbig> something like this? got energy management, MoP, weaken armor, bit of everything needed. And problem with shard wolves will be cleared to cause you have T3 who does it. Ofcourse it's for more exp jobs? or maybe not cause of 2 manly wars?

Hmm you could. In fact, the spike works without MoP at all (and 2 warriors) since there's so much additional damage (but we like to keep a bit extra for pugs). The only issue you might have is with MoP recharge time, meaning you're waiting between groups (obviously this is an issue for very fast teams, who'd be the kind to use this build). - AthrunFeya - 18:59, January 20, 2010 (UTC)
Don't think that's completely true, till mobs are bolled it's surely will be recharged. Ofc you can switch out tryptophan signet for AoS, maybe for some recharge. Only problem could be in forge, but as you said, 2 warriors should deal enough damage, so + splinter, damage should be surely enough.
We could include t3 it in a build that uses a casterspike, as then we wouldn't need 3(4) players for a reliable spike. Andy 12:37, January 23, 2010 (UTC)
Think manly spike is a reliable enough spike, certainly with 2 wars. and Maintank can surely outheal damage with either feigned neutrality or shadow sanctuary so
Your opinion depends on one often have you pugged in the last few months? Life Guardian 22:26, January 23, 2010 (UTC)

Guild teams use this site too and a lot of people do FoW a lot of the time, we should post but say; if your team is brave and strong (!) drop a warrior and take this. - AthrunFeya - 11:04, January 24, 2010 (UTC)
Drop warrior or monk :o. Life Guardian 11:09, January 24, 2010 (UTC)
When we start adding more advanced builds, we meet the problem that more than one build changes. T3 isn't as simple as just dropping the warrior. Spikes are painfully far apart if you continue to use the regular manly build, especially in forge. Changing the 100b build into something that wastes less time on recharges also causes you to have to change the MoP build. If you drop the monk, playstyle has to change or the rit needs to pack spirit light. Tactics that would take quite a while to explain would also have to be included for any of the builds to make sense. Life Guardian 11:32, January 24, 2010 (UTC)
I'm not sure some of those changes are 100% necessary. Forge is the only place where foes are in groups near enough that you'd get a problem with recharge. And if people killed in groups containing 1 set of melee and 1 set of casters then it would be a lot faster, the chance of recharge is far higher (I really don't see the benefit of pugs scraping all the melee out and have 4 crap spikes after). If people are going with a t3 you'd expect them to be decent, so i'm sure the warrior would be quite capable of telling the necro to wait slightly and the necro actually doing so, in the unlikely event AoS didn't case recharge. - AthrunFeya - 11:48, January 24, 2010 (UTC)
All I'm saying is that the existence of a t3 is widely enough known that we should include it. - AthrunFeya - 15:21, January 24, 2010 (UTC)

(Reset indent) And I agree, we just need to think about how to do it. The easiest option is just to say minor build changes may be necessary when running with a t3 or something, but thy might not really be enough. As for forge, 360 probably doesn't make sense because rits are retarded and don't use splinter weapon. However, with an exp mt, 360 is the best thing that you can possibly do in forge. It has to do with abusing eoe, wanding, and EBSoH. Basically, while the team is killing casters, I'm up top wanding all the rangers under 90% hp. Spike come on the melée, eoe clears the entire top of forge. Life Guardian 18:37, January 24, 2010 (UTC)

Oh, and it's not a short wait. You waste a good 2 minutes in forge running a solo war with the regular builds. Life Guardian 18:37, January 24, 2010 (UTC)
Want to start writing the t3 and usage for this build? (and just completely get rid of the utility monk). Then we can work out what to do with this one. - AthrunFeya - 18:44, January 24, 2010 (UTC)
Well...I don't really think that build should even be on pvx...It was never run by the masses, or even for a record time. By keeping it, we have a double standard. All these random idiots come and submit their fow builds, and we trash them and say there's no room, inferior to manly, etc etc. Unfortunately, this falls into a similar category. I don't mind writing it up, but that's my opinion on the build as a whole. Life Guardian 18:51, January 24, 2010 (UTC)
It isn't double standards for two reasons. Firstly builds like Build:Team - DoA Manly Spike shouldn't be here if you're going by those criteria (which, I hope you agree, is kinda stupid...). Secondly, the whole reason that was posted is because it technically is more effective than manly for the majority of groups (as you know, old icU records used several splinter rits). We explained Redways weaknesses quite thoroughly when the build appeared on PvX and all we've seen since are variants. - AthrunFeya - 18:59, January 24, 2010 (UTC)
I don't agree with the first point. It was actually run fairly commonly before shitterflames came around, plus it's just another variant of manlyspike, which is used by the masses. The majority of groups part in your second point prevents me from really arguing, because it can discount anything I say, but it's still iffy because it actually requires people to spike as a group. With manly, wars spiking together doesn't matter at all if your rit knows how to use splinter. Anyways, it was just my 2 cents, I really don't care. Go well/archive/delete the FoC build and I'll get started on the splinter spike. Life Guardian 19:08, January 24, 2010 (UTC)
FoCway was the one which was used by the masses before shitterflames was. I might make a FoW caster spike, then problem is solved. - AthrunFeya - 19:20, January 24, 2010 (UTC)
I meant the FoC FoW build. It was really never run, and is probably even worse than redway. I wrote up the t3 usage for the splinter spike. Look it over and improve grammar/go in more detail. Also, not sure how griffs will work with t3 splinter spike. Can 2 rits still spike shit? Life Guardian 19:27, January 24, 2010 (UTC)
well if ppl wanna run this team this is a set up of new manly spike:
  • Terra 1: Does his job as normal, just leaves the shard wolf at the battlefield for the t3.
  • Terra 2: Different job. Terra 2 goes to forge, clears all psychical mobs (abyssals, warriors, rangers, shadow beasts) so that main team just has to kill casters (saves lots of time). Aftherwards he just does the normal t2 job. But you can ask the t1 to do khobay if you dont have enough time. depends, just talk with your t1 about it.
  • Terra 3: Runs to wailing forest, kills all worms with aggro of spirit shepherds (at 3/4 SF recharge, run away so you can cast SF safely again, then return and keep killing). If all worms are killed, you grab spirit shepherds aggro and kill everything in the wailing lord area, except for the wailing lord itself(!). When your done with that, you go to the battlefield and kill the remaining shard wolf there. When done with that, and if main team is not at wailing forest yet, you just grab aggro of shepherds, kill all the spiders, and ball shepherds for main team. Afther that is done, go take gryphons quest, and stay with gryphons.
  • Main team: just does normal job
Eh, having the t2 kill shit on top of forge is actually much slower, especially when using an eoe. Life Guardian 21:26, January 27, 2010 (UTC)
Lol, T1 doing khobay. You know you've got a bad run when you need this. Piercing make me a cool tag. Feedmenow 01:48, January 28, 2010 (UTC)


I know its cool and all but really? The damage is kinda lame to be honest. Winnowing would be better in my honest opinion x.x RASK! 08:09, January 29, 2010 (UTC)

EoE is stronger than 99% of people know :o. Life Guardian 08:12, January 29, 2010 (UTC)
EoE can save 3-4-5? minutes in a run if youre MT doesnt blow. The lack of EoE is the reason why we got an 11 minute run instead of a 10 minute.. UncleFeedmenow SigDante 01:03, January 30, 2010 (UTC)
I don't really get it. Sounds like its meta and thats all. Winnowing would add more damage and your mt shouldn't suck. I only say this because I run MT 95% of the time. But could someone put it as a variant since I'm in a mission atm x.x. RASK! 00:27, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
Think about it this way. What if i was to wand something not in the ball under 90% hp as mt? and what if the mob was big enough, that when the spike happened, everything i had wanded instantly died from eoe? Top of forge and the bridge are 2 places where this can be used to full effect. I can clear every ranger on top of forge, by having the warriors spike the abyssals/beasts. Similarly, i can clear the entire bridge(except the 2 beasts that spawn after icehands are dead), by having the warriors spike the berserkers/banshees. Life Guardian 00:52, February 1, 2010 (UTC)

I have been doing fowsc as mop for awhile now and haved stopped using assasins promise. N/RT with splinter and signet of spirits works great. Yes but the rit has those i hear you say but at the split and after the rit has the griffs it speeds the kills up . Dont use ya spirits when the rit is in range and you are sorted. :P

Easier to just put EVAS and GDW on the monk tbh. If anything go n/mo for SoH and pewpew RoJ Life Guardian 18:05, February 4, 2010 (UTC)
If you're gonna change the nec why not just make N/Me with echo. 2 MoPs makes every pull a really clean spike even with 1 warr. If cool down is a problem bring air of sup. thats just my opinion anyways.JackdoesSCs 22:33, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

In what way? The builds listed here can be run for a very fast time(14-15 mins) exactly how they are. You could drop a war and add a a/me or a/e t3, which would speed up the run. You could also drop a monk and add a rit or an a/me to clear what the t3 didn't. You could further drop the eoe and add a t4, which leaves you with the record bars. It's a delicate situation because there are so many stages of builds with varying times of completion, with each build requiring more exp than the last. Life Guardian 21:20, February 9, 2010 (UTC)

EoE Ranger

Use Ritualist spirits to absorb damage, cause extra damage and kill leftover enemies after spikes in forest/parts of forge. Spirits can also block the door in front of Rastigan. If EoE is recharged, put spirits in front of door, and then cast EoE back a bit.

Wat, put eoe back for 50 more damage? theres only 1 abyssal to activate EoE you know? just leave it in front of the door-- 22:34, February 12, 2010 (UTC)

There are 2 abyssals and the lord...Plus, putting spirits in front of the door is stupid anyway because any warrior with half a brain can block the doorway. Life Guardian 02:09, February 13, 2010 (UTC)
Well, only rit and monk can do it. If ya need help, call Bob the Oni. Hair Fetish Man 14:54, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Update - February 25

So, some random people just said we should replace t1 and t2 with elementalists with obsidian flesh...--ValeV 13:09, February 26, 2010 (UTC)

hmm, that would've worked with the old obsi flesh but i'm not sure about the current one. still prolly does tho. - AthrunFeya Lau bfly - 14:12, February 26, 2010 (UTC)

the build posted really works! i havn't thought so but after trying i must say it works, although it must be taken attention at skeletons rangers and their d-shot (killed as soon as spawned the 2 near the NPCs spawn in t1 path and was fine), abyssals and their knockdown (time IaU so you dont have to cast in its downtime). only done t1, i wonder how t2 can handle interrupts in cave. --Giorgevich 18:59, February 26, 2010 (UTC)

Guys Regarding the nerf i came up wiht and alternative and geus what it works :P

<pvxbig>[build prof=Elementalist/Mesmer ear=12+3+1 ins=10 ene=8+1][Obsidian Flesh][Stoneflesh Aura][Stone Striker][Mantra of Earth]["I Am Unstoppable!"][Mantra of Resolve][Sliver Armor][Glyph of Concentration][/build]</pvxbig> Earth magic should be 16 Inspiration 10 or 12 and energy storage 9 depends on how u rune it just give yourself an complete geomancer armour set and all dmg should be 0. :P and u can maintain it permenantly with cons. This is a handy advise though when u encouter beserkers u kill them or get a quick ball so the mainteam can spike.

Greetz Swift Swift talk 09:33, March 1, 2010 (UTC)

Add it as an alternate or a variant, so that people get the idea. Bonding MT is terribly awkward, as they aren't used to being tied to the UA. I'd love to see an independent tank again. 02:49, March 2, 2010 (UTC)
Bonding isn't a necessity. Pugs are just so bad that having bonds up makes it so they can't really die. Life Guardian 02:55, March 2, 2010 (UTC)
I keep dieing due to interrupts on the T1 run, so I was wondering how are you guys doing this? The only way I can think of it to let your health drop below 50% and use the 75% blocking from Shroud of Distress to cast spells. I haven't try this yet, but is this the right way of doing it? Note: I am doing this solo for practice-- 15:08, March 6, 2010 (UTC)
Only place that's really dangerous is at ghost camp. Easy solution is to just sliver down the impalers, but if you pop a pie or rock candy, you can usually avoid rupts. Count on stoneflesh being dshotted while you're at ghost camp btw. Life Guardian 20:38, March 7, 2010 (UTC)

Glyph of lesser energy needed? -> better glyph of concentration?

hey guys, i was wondering if terras really need the "glyph of lesser energy". old perma cycle was "deadly"@15nrj + "SF"@10nrj = 25nrj new cycle is "SF"@5nrj + "stoneflesh"@10nrj = 15nrj and to be safe w/ "glyph of concentration"@5nrj only = 20nrj! so why will you fricking need the "glyph of lesser energy"?! imho exchange it for "glyph of concentration"! greets :)

Essence Bond

So I noticed the update to the UA build, but won't it make more sense to use Essence Bond on the Main tank rather than Blathazar's Spirit on yourself?-- 02:40, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

Essence bond performs differently than Balthazar's spirit for some reason. Balthazar's spirit provides a more reliable energy gain. I believe that if the damage taken by the tank is not physical or elemental, the monk will not receive energy. Life Guardian 02:46, March 3, 2010 (UTC)
-.- "Balthazar's spirit" + "Life Bond" on MT! "Balthazar's spirit" on UA himself! Will be triggered by "Life Bond" => decent energy gain => spam "Heal Party" to help your MT! ffs -.-
Ah, that makes sense ty. -- 14:10, March 6, 2010 (UTC)

Dragon Leach and Impalers

How to handle Dragon Leach now ? After i kill priest and take book, I usually get interupted by Dragon Leach or Impaler, couse i must cast both Shadow form and stoneflesh aura. 09:30, March 8, 2010 (UTC)

Try to lure Menzies out of his high spot and kill him without aggroing the dragon lich. For Impalers, try to avoid aggroing them too. Otherwise take a glyph of concentration or use a red rock candy. Hair Fetish Man 13:26, March 8, 2010 (UTC)
Count on Stoneflesh being dshotted. Simple solution to impalers is to just sliver them down. Dragon Lich can be a massive pain, but as Hair said, Priest can usually be lured down from the hill. Second option is to just pop a red/blue rock and outrun the bitch. Life Guardian 02:56, March 9, 2010 (UTC)

== Energy --

I'm having trouble maintaining energy as T1. Any advice? 08:40, March 17, 2010 (UTC)

Use a blue/red rock candy and switch glyph of concentration for glyph of minor energy. Or use apples. Hair Fetish Man 08:53, March 17, 2010 (UTC)

Main Tank Variants

Can somebody make a A/me build for main tank? Because ive ben having some trouble with energy so i was wondering if somebody could make a channeling CoP build?

Please sign your comments with 4 ~'s. The easiest solution is to just have your monk cast Balth's spirit on you. Then energy becomes a nonissue. Even if you were running a/me, you wouldnt be using CoP. Just have the team spike down the lightning wolf. Life Guardian 03:47, March 29, 2010 (UTC)

Distracting Blow?

For the 100B warriors' optional slot. A lot of people use Sun and Moon Slash, but I'm wondering if Distracting Blow is more effective, since it practically mimics Whirlwind Attack.

"Melee Attack. Also attacks foes adjacent to your target. Interrupts an action. Hits for no damage."

Followed by Whirlwind Attack, you could disable any healing, etc. from a mob with the interrupt effect, and despite inflicting no damage, it would still trigger Hundred Blades and Mark of Pain to finish off the group (if they didn't die already).

Unless I'm overlooking something? Comments please. :D AtomiK 23:12, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

The description of Distracting Blow is slightly misleading - it actually only triggers Hundred Blades once despite "attacking" several foes. Andy 23:28, March 30, 2010 (UTC)
Ah, I see. All right then, forget that. Thanks. AtomiK 02:29, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

Due to the fact that sins crit (<3) you can spike much faster, cause you don't have to wait for energy to reload. maybe we should take the sin in the main build? most guys think that sins don't work because they don't have 100 armor <.< Acalia Draken 13:39, April 24, 2010 (UTC)

AoS and/or zealous sword already covers that perfectly well. Most people take W/A for the higher damage. - AthrunFeya Lau eye 11:28, May 19, 2010 (UTC)

SF interrupted at Khobay

Yesterday I got SF interrupted at Khobay, but did not noticed what interrupted me. Does anyone know something about that ? 06:38, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

Temple guards use griffon's sweep which causes KD if you block their attack. So either you don't drop your life under 50% (threshold for activating shroud's blocking ability), or just don't use shroud. Hair Fetish Man 08:35, April 12, 2010 (UTC)
or, better, use IaU when you need to cast stuff --Giorgevich 13:01, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

Other Builds/Places(still manly)

Manly TotPK originally designed for Tombs of the Primeval Kings, but have been taking it into the easier dungeons in HM for some fun, Secret Lair of the Snowmen and Sepulchure of Draggimar are the only other 2 we've done in HM, Darkrime Delves was almost completed, but monk and rit got D/C'ed before completion, and werent allowed the option to rejoin where they got D/C'ed...just Curious on other peoples experiences using Manly or Forms of Manly.

T1 Variant?

Made a T1 variant, dunno if it works :p

You need an armor which is full modded with Blessed Insignia's. A mask with +4 Shadow Arts, the rest jused full with Runes of Attunement and eventually a Rune of Superiour Vigor. As wep you can just use a +20 staff with 20% ench.

You use alcohol to maintain anti-kd with Dwarven Stab & Drunken Master to speed things up. At r10 delver dwarven stab/drunken master is a very nice combi to maintain your alcohol...

Shame it would cost more money than using cupcakes. Just thinking in my head cakes are 100k/14e per stack, and you would use up alcohol 3 times as fast and you don't get stacks of level 3 alcohol for under 33k from what I remember. --Samsig 11:45, May 19, 2010 (UTC)

Khobay Tactic

Because there're still loads of people who cant do the T2 job in time, because of Khobay, I'll post my tactic to kill him. I dont know if its a new one, I just know that it (nearly) always works.

This tactic will take some time, so be sure you dont go farm while doing your job, first finish it! (2 Q's -> beachwolf -> battlewolf -> go khobay and wait for Q -> send mage if t1 needs -> seeds)

So first you run to Khobay's spawn place, make sure you pulled at least 2 groups of Obsidian Furnace Drakes/Smoke Walkers and if you think you've enough time, also try to pull a third group. If you've time left while waiting you can already try to take down the Smoke Walkers. If the Q is activated Khobay and his whole gang will spawn. First sliver down the warriors and because of the heals and ressurections, the monks will also come adjacent, so you can sliver them down too. If the monks and wars of Khobay's gang are down and eventually the Smoke Walkers too, you can now just kill Khobay without any problem... :D

Sliver Armor Nerf

so, is it no longer possible? 08:23, May 22, 2010 (UTC)

Only thing that might be a bit tricky is priest. Everything else should work just fine. Death's charge up to priest and don't be bad and he'll be dead before the berserkers get up there anyways. Life Guardian 08:26, May 22, 2010 (UTC)
Kinda hard to do that, the casters sometimes run on to the plateau to so you don't have the needed damage to kill him. Think that's the only struggle for t1. Eiion X 08:49, May 22, 2010 (UTC)
It also makes EBSoH and BUH useless on terras because Shadow Form has been nerfed to ignore effects of those damage increasements. Same for Asuran Scan. --Juze JuzeAvatar 13:58, May 22, 2010 (UTC)
uhm, not sure what ur saying but ebsoh alone did never get me over the sf cap (BUH! did), but since Sliver is bugged now and doesnt do earth damage but.. armor ignoring damage, u dont need the ward to get the 28damage from it.. t1 and t2 are still possible, and u have a free skill slot Babes1 15:43, May 22, 2010 (UTC)
Ward never went over sf cap, anet is on drugs. However, after they fix sliver to not be armor ignoring, ebsoh will need to go back in to hit the max damage possible. Perhaps Glyph of Swiftness will see use now, to get sliver recharging as fast as possible. Life Guardian 20:25, May 22, 2010 (UTC)
Well, it took them 5y to 'Fix a bug that caused Sliver Armor to always deal damage to the same foe.' so dont know :> Babes1 08:55, May 23, 2010 (UTC)

You still can't kill the Priest the +8 regen gives him time to get a WoH off. Someone needs to change the usage because it is completely different now. You can't do anything with the new sliver if you have more than 2 melee on you otherwise the healers will just outheal you. --Risus 15:29, June 2, 2010 (UTC)
Either pull another group or sliver down the berserkers. Or just l2p. Life Guardian 17:02, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

General Inaccessibility of SCing

Although this isn't specifically about this build, as ManlyS is pretty much the pugging norm, I figured this would be the most appropriate spot to post this.

Everyone constantly complains about "noobs" and "idiots" in pugs. They blame their failures on a certain party member, and either force them to pay or blacklist them. While we all hate it when someone joins an SC party and fails, keeping up this attitude isn't going to help us in the long run. Everyone has to start somewhere, and if people keep up this shield of elitism then no newbies are ever going to have a chance to get better at SCing. Cooperation, not shouting disparities and insults to your dead teammates is going to get you through FoW, but too many people don't understand this. They don't give beginners a chance to learn. If you want a guaranteed completion, 12/11 minute run, do it with your guild; don't talk down to people who just want to have fun and make money in PuGs who are trying their best.
Making an effort to include beginners in SCs is the only way to ensure that the community continues to evolve and grow. When players with less-than-stellar experience walk away from SCs with a bad taste in their mouth, they're a lot less likely to hop on youtube and look at some guides than they are if they feel inspired because they're teammates are understanding and encouraging. In my mind, there's no doubt that the SCing community is gradually shrinking, and I believe that this is because the elitist attitude that many experienced SCers hold.
So please, next time your T2 kills all the spiders in the cave on accident, or your MT dies while trying to ball things in the forest, or your UA doesn't rez you in a fraction of a second, have some sympathy. Everyone has been there, shit happens, and having supporting teammates is the only way to survive.

Just my thoughts. -Kara Sirel, (18:02, May 24, 2010 (UTC))

Theres a point where it's not being a noob, it's just being downright stupid and ignorant. It's not that someone does something wrong, it's more that someone lacks common sense. You can teach a new person how to play, but you can't force someone who's being stupid to listen to you. If a rit won't cast splinter on the wars, that's not being a noob. That's just being stupid. Getting rid of idiots is a good thing, not a bad thing. Life Guardian 20:10, May 24, 2010 (UTC)
