Your single aegis was epic anti-pressure, Pika. Panic, that was Shadow, we just lacked any sort of squishies to target and so went after monks... and happened to get the same monk. Then he called a spike and our SoH-buffed eviscs just tore him apart.

No, Pie and I were running Aegis chains. Their warriors weren't really putting up much of a struggle considering how easy it was to negate the pressure with simply guardian.

You trying to tell me they don't have savage shot in RA? -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image 17:23, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
Interruption owns everything, not just Sins. Assassin chains are hurt a little more by disabling (D-Shot) because of the lead, off-hand, dual attack prerequisites, but if you had Eviscerate or Wounding Strike D-Shotted, you wouldn't be very happy, either. Tbh, I submitted that build when I still liked Sins. XD ــмıкεнaшк 17:43, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
The point is that's an especially predictable chain - if I gave a crap I'd be able to interrupt it every time past the first, but then I wouldn't be in RA/FA - that's also very slow (lack of IAS makes it far easier to both interrupt and heal/prot against - nat stride says hai, btw) and, to be frank, weak. Sins can't solo-spike anymore - and the game's far better off for it if you ask me - but people still seem to want to try. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image 17:46, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
Sins can't do much any more; they've become nearly worthless in PvP, tbh. When I first started playing a Ranger, some of the easiest D-Shots I've ever made were on Iron Palm in the Beguiling Haze Deadly Arts "spike". ــмıкεнaшк 18:04, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
Yes, well, the word "assassin" carries with it some connotations.

The fact that people in RA are retarded doesn't make the build any better. It can't clean-spike, it can't get around enchantment removal, it takes forever to spike, and one orison or kiss renders the entire spike worthless (much less a guardian or aof mid-spike). Lacks IAS and has to trade IMS for res sig in most places; it doesn't deserve much higher than I gave it. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image 19:13, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
Owait, has IAS. It's just... really awful. An 18% IAS isn't awesome. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image 19:14, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

Did you not read any of my rant except the res part? -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image 20:56, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
Tbh, I don't agree with the rest of it. It spikes faster than most melee, has a KD mid chain and puts out decent pressure between spikes with high DPS. Rating down a build because it can be out-healed or protted against isn't right, because those apply to all melee. ــмıкεнaшк 21:11, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
So any build that is countered by guardian, diversion etc etc should be rated 1-1? *Runs and rates every single build 1-1*.PikaFanLightningbolt sig 21:12, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
@Mike: No, see, it doesn't matter if it spikes faster than most melee, it's still a six-second "spike". That's not a spike, that's elongated (single-target) pressure. It also can't do crap outside of its spike, because even with conjure, dagger dps is just nothing worth noticing.
@Pika: A lot of them, yeah. If something can be completely killed by Diversion or Dshot (like a dshot to your lead, or your kd in a kd-as type build, or what have you), it's probably trash. Do bear in mind that if it can actually do something outside of those factors, it's not trash. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image 21:16, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

Here's a better example [3]. Diversion clearly screws this build up QQ.PikaFanLightningbolt sig 21:24, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
(ECs)The BB Sin is a 5-6 second spike, and anything else that tries to solo spike won't likely achieve anything faster. Build:A/any Deadly Arts Spike Sin and Build:A/any_BH_Spike_Sin were 8-second spikes (excluding aftercast in their shadow steps), and the Deadly Arts builds and Build:A/D_Grenth's_Grasp_Assassin weren't enough to kill a foe with little more than 500 health while Build:A/E_Way_of_the_Assassin can deal over 600 damage in its spike, and constantly reapply DW and pressure through high DPS. ــмıкεнaшк 21:32, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

@Pika: Armond already rated down the GG Sin. XD ــмıкεнaшк 21:35, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

The GG Sin has a number of counters, and a lot of weaknesses. This build does, too. The BB, however, can't be countered as easily because your target, probably a monk or mesmer, is lying on their ass. @Mike, GG Sin, however, has a snare, IAS, and IMS. Your build is just another example of why this wiki fails a bit. Cedave bad  ツ cedave (☆contributions☆) 22:24, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

Aura stab's one of the more minor counters, but are you trying to tell me that you're never going to run into any form of antimelee at all ever while running that? Even Faintheartedness kills that because you can't get your attacks off for another knockdown, and without knocklock, that's just not worth running.
The fact that most melee is countered by blind/block/miss/etc doesn't mean it's ok for this one to be countered by it. Things like shock axe can still get stuff done while blinded; the moment this is blinded, it's essentially a waste of a character slot. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image 17:06, 4 October 2008 (EDT)
Shock Axe can use Shock while it's blinded. That's it. Cripslash Warriors are also useless when blinded. Rating a build down because of its counters doesn't really make sense, tbh. ــмıкεнaшк 17:13, 4 October 2008 (EDT)

Yes, yes it does.
Shock axe and whatnot have a semi-decent amount of damage when they hit outside their attack skills. This doesn't.
Besides, who uses shock axe in scrub arenas outside of syncing? Bad example; if you're going into scrub arenas you bring a condi removal because of blind. Then all you have to worry about is hex-style hate. Proper builds can still manage some damage through faint or blurred (not both, obviously); this can't do anything when hexed, and has no hex removal. At the very least, give it mtouch... but as you can't mtouch mid-chain, it'd still be bad.

the build is a shitty gimmick. the hammerbash axe faggotry that [qE] has been running in RA when they're bored doesn't make this build good, it just makes means [qE] has some freakishly skilled and mcbrave frontline players.
some of us are asshats (read: ska), some of us have a tendency to forget our hardhats when going to our weekly MENSA meetings (read: mike), meanwhile, the rest of us seem to keep ourselves occupied by shitting on or around shitty gimmicks (read: armond and cedave).
oh, and some of us are just plain bad (read: relyk).
now, if we all agree that being countered by meleehate make melee toons bad, i'm gonna go 1-1 all the melee builds that don't have a use while blinded. kthx.

Cedave, fundamental difference, if you fuck up any other warrior bar you still have the ability to use your other attack skills when your not blinded or being blocked. You're also not splitting your attributes by being proficient at 2 weapons, therefor you do more damage with a focused weapon attribute. If you fuck up back breaker your other pressure moves are useless as a result. How many times must it be said? I swear to god if you go 1 - 1 every melee build because of this stupid build dispute I will track you down and bitch slap you. It was a bad build, get over it please :<.----ﮎHædõ๘یíɳShadowsin sig 09:57, 9 October 2008 (EDT)
Apparently, Cedave's point was lost on you. The point was, having counters for a build does not make a build fail. Rather, it is the lack of focus/poor synergy of skills etc that decides a build is bad. Simple as that. P.S Most assassin chains rely on fixed skill usages. Do you trash BB sins and etc just because "if they fuck up back breaker your other pressure moves are useless as a result"? Of course not. Rate builds not because they have counters, but by their efficiency/universality kthx.PikaFanLightningbolt sig 10:58, 9 October 2008 (EDT)

It doesn't make a difference if u use SH and SF, Return or Natural Stride. They're nice variants, now 4-4 it >:(--ShadowRelyk Sig 11:16, 9 October 2008 (EDT)

No, SF and nat stride (on a monk, at least) are horrible in AB and should thus be on the main bar. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{Bacon}} 13:10, 9 October 2008 (EDT)

NS monks are good. Especially in AB. 16:41, 9 October 2008 (EDT)
Tbh, SH is overrated in AB. All that Ele would be good for is capping, while an SF can actually help against other players. Meteor Shower and SF will usually kill all of the NPCs at a shrine before the last Meteor hits, which is more than enough for capping. ــмıкεнaшк 16:46, 9 October 2008 (EDT)

He's using MS. He's doin it wrong. 60 second recharge is fail. Cedave bad  ツ cedave (☆contributions☆) 21:18, 9 October 2008 (EDT)
MS is good for capping shrines. Especially helpful when you want to interrupt monks at res shrines and to prevent dangerous hexes at the mesmer shrine. Bring glyph of sacrifice if you think the casting time is too long.PikaFanLightningbolt sig 21:23, 9 October 2008 (EDT)
Pretty sure he said 60s recharge, not cast time. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{Bacon}} 22:01, 9 October 2008 (EDT)
You don't take like 15 seconds to cap from one shrine to another. 60 seconds is more than enough for ms to recharge as long you use it at the start of your chain.PikaFanLightningbolt sig 22:03, 9 October 2008 (EDT)
I just did AB like ten minutes ago (see below section). We were moving from engaging one shrine, to downing it in ~15 seconds, to running to the next shrine for ~15 seconds. MS would be less than halfway recharged. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{Bacon}} 22:04, 9 October 2008 (EDT)
Moral of the story: Use a better timer please kthx. Yours is broken.PikaFanLightningbolt sig 22:08, 9 October 2008 (EDT)
Ignore above, I didn't notice 30 seconds total. Anyway, you don't need MS for every shrine. Just reserve MS for the more troublesome shrines like dual monks, lightning ele shrines, mesmer shrines.PikaFanLightningbolt sig 22:24, 9 October 2008 (EDT)
lol@troublesome shrines. it's fucking ai, just bring a lot of anti-attack and they'd end up killing themselves in 15 seconds. Cedave bad  ツ cedave (☆contributions☆) 00:59, 10 October 2008 (EDT)

You keep forgetting about the 60 second recharge. stop being terrible. Cedave bad  ツ cedave (☆contributions☆) 02:17, 10 October 2008 (EDT)
You keep forgetting you aren't supposed to use at every shrine, just the shrines that are annoyances.PikaFanLightningbolt sig 02:46, 10 October 2008 (EDT)

I wish i could cap every 15 seconds, i would win every time--ShadowRelyk Sig 23:15, 9 October 2008 (EDT)

If you're capping with your team members, which you should be, you don't even need to use MS. If you're solo-capping, Meteor Shower should recharge before you get to the next shrine because it takes forever for "that bar" (whatever you want to call it) to fill up, anyway. The point is, capping on your own is slow, so Meteor Shower is fine, capping with team members is so fast that SF will work as well as SH, and trying to fight an opposing teams with SH is just plain bad. ــмıкεнaшк 07:22, 10 October 2008 (EDT)
9/10 of the pve scrubs you pick up into your party run off in 7 different directions(don't ask me how 3 people can run away in 7 directions), so you DO need meteor shower 9/10 of the times.PikaFanLightningbolt sig 14:25, 16 October 2008 (EDT)

To fix a team builder

  1. Right-click your TB shortcut on your desktop/start menu/quick launch.
  2. Find the "target" line. It'll be under one of them tabs.
  3. Change the target from "...\GW Team Builder.bat" to "...\gwtb.jar" (note the capitalization).
  4. Click apply.
  5. Keep your java installed. If you fuck with it, TB no longer has a way to check to see that it'll work before booting. However, so long as TB actually worked before you made the changes, it'll work after them too.

That's it. You no longer have that annoying blank popup screen at the beginning.

Now, if you want to go into the .exe (winrar lets you look into it, and winzip should too) and tell me how to modify the way the skill icons are loaded (I'm trying to get it to load from a bunch of jpegs instead of unpacking them from the .zip/.rar), and how to make the skill categories reference the anti-melee, anti-knockdown, etc, as they're defined in the .exe, that'd be win. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{Bacon}} 18:49, 17 October 2008 (EDT)

Team - Urgoz's Flame (talk · rate)

GDW is on the Rits (who can cast it on others, as well), and Paragons<Rangers/Eles, tbh, although to take full advantage of Incendiary Arrows, you need an ally with Splinter Weapon for each Ranger (which there is). The SF Elementalists contribute a lot more than additional Paragons could considering it's AoE and the monsters in Urgoz's Warren are weak against Fire damage. Also, losing the unblockable damage (by terrain, as well) and Meteor Shower wouldn't be a great idea, especially for this area and against Urgoz.

Tbh, I wouldn't trade the strong heals (HB) for energy management (HC), seeing as you'll need a BiP, and it will actually decrease your healing efficiency, anyway. Arcane Mimicry would also be a bad idea on the UA's bar because it doesn't use any Healing Prayers so it wouldn't be able to take advantage of Healer's Covenant, Healer's Boon or any other Elites used in the team, anyway.

As for Wounding Strike, mebbe these instead of the Rt/D frontliners?

Wounding Strike Mystic Sweep Eremite&#039;s Attack Critical Agility Way of the Master Asuran Scan &quot;By Ural&#039;s Hammer!&quot; Resurrection Signet

I'd have to find room for Great Dwarf Weapon on someone else, but I could replace both Monks for these: <pvxbig> [build prof=E/Mo EnergyStorage=10+1+3 SmitingPrayers=11 HealingPrayers=10][Infuse Health][Heal Party][Mindbender][Great Dwarf Weapon][Ether Renewal][Aura of Restoration][Strength of Honor][Resurrection Chant][/build] </pvxbig>
