Raven is fucking awesome. Also, this is pretty win.
Guild of Deals' Unused Skill of the Week
After 5 seconds, target foe is knocked down. This Hex ends prematurely if that foe uses a Skill.
If anyone has an Unused skill they would like to suggest, post it here.
The Gates Assassin's Concept of the Whenever
Defense you gain from utility is generally good. Defense you gain from defense is generally worse.
Snares, interrupts, and knockdowns are all examples of utility. Skills like distracting shot, while it's nature is offensive, can be very defensive as well by interrupting skills that target you. This creates a skill that allows you to hurt them, and save yourself. A snare can slow down enemies to allow melee to more easily spike them, however they double as a skill that allows you to kite away while they move slower. Just plain old defense, such as skills like Armor of Earth and Mist Form, only gain benefit in one way, defense. You can't use Mist Form offensively EVER. While it takes more skill to use utility over just plain defense, in the end you get more effect.--The GatesAssassin 15:18, 15 July 2008 (EDT)

Godbox's Random TB Creation of the Whenever I Make A New Build
What's up with that ugly space between the skillbars? D: Scavenger's Focus with QZ allows for constant maintaining, and it's not a stance! Free attackspamming. Use half-recharge Mantra of Recharge to be able to run boonmonks. Very strong spike. CLICK!

Mgrinshpon's Leet Build of the Whenever
The Shadow Judgment assassin attempts to combine the Guild Wars world's two greatest foes- Area of Effect damage and shadow stepping: and succeeds admirably. Combining degen in the form of burning is just a cherry on the top of this sundae of decadent bravery.
This gem comes from the festering filth-hole we all know and love: the PvX authors. Not the "my wife's little sister is pretty hot" kind of love and impure thoughts but the "me and you, with a half-empty bottle of Baccardi, a 40 weight, and wearing nothing but contented smiles" kind of love. The kind of love that only the Shadow Judgment assassin and the original brave man-creator can give to you. Now, the author has since been lost to the annals of PvX:WELL but rest assured that this bad boy will just pop right in behind you and judge you for all you're worth.
Originally found on PvX. For more builds of top notch quality, see here.
Addendum: my apologies for taking so long to update this.
For Euros, the term 'split build' has a totally different meaning than it does for other people. Euros like to feel that they're running something exciting and brave rather than the standard eurospike by sending a Warrior, Ranger and Monk to bash their heads against the opposing teams back gate for 18 minutes, and refusing to call off the split no matter how much defence is sent back. Unfortunately, these builds always have more defence than eurospike. Battle Gods [BG] were a great example of a terrible euro guild running this tactic.
