be so terrible. Rebirth is so much better especially when you wipe. I rather use flesh of my flesh over death pact, at any day, rather than risk a one-die-all-die situation.PikaFanLightningbolt sig 12:52, 28 October 2008 (EDT)

Agree. "Oh, player is dead, let's use ALL my energy and several seconds of casting time to bring him back to life, at a state in which he'll die in two seconds again anyway, while I can't heal him because i have energy."

Why are you wiping again? -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{Bacon}} 14:36, 28 October 2008 (EDT)
Think of it like this: you wouldn't allow everyone but one person to wipe, then res them one by one in GvG, would you? No, you need everyone up as much as possible to get winning done. The same thing applies to pve. Assuming that you're going to wipe, and taking Rebirth so you can res after a wipe is a self-fulfilling prophecy: you wipe because Rebirth is fucking useless everywhere except that one situation, whereas res sig or DPS are both fast and infinitely better mid-battle. Many situations where you'd expect to die with a pug, where a majority take monk resses with the mindset that they're only to be used after everyone but them has wiped, can be won with h/h where multiple people have res sig/DPS. --Mafaraxas (talk) 18:12, 28 October 2008 (EDT)
Nobody asked you to bring 100 copies of rebirth. Bringing one copy on a monk will do, since monks usually survive after a wipe, if any at all. You wouldn't allow people to wipe, but will the mobs allow you not to wipe? You will still wipe occasionally, and saving every single point of DP counts towards clearing that oh-so-annoying dungeon or vanquish. One monk to bring rebirth, one monk to bring res chant(with HB) and the rest can bring death pact, FomF, res sigs w/e.PikaFanLightningbolt sig 19:02, 1 November 2008 (EDT)
Also, bringing rebirth is not expecting the party to wipe, bringing rebirth is in case the party actually wipes. It's like saying you bring resurrects because you expect your party to die, when you should not. It's not a matter of should not, rather it is a matter of precaution. Get the fundamental difference between expecting and taking precautions against.PikaFanLightningbolt sig 19:04, 1 November 2008 (EDT)
If your team is good enough (Imbagon) you don't need Rebirth. Also, unless the mobs have absolutely no set path and instead play Uno on your party's corpses, you can Res a guy with a hard res then res the rest of your party. Rebirth just isn't really needed ever since people realized PvE builds are ridiuculously overpowered. --GoD Hammer and Sickle Guild of Deals 19:29, 1 November 2008 (EDT)
That's why you l2pull with a longbow, which your party should be proficient enough to do. If you wipe, they will eventually return back to their original locations and not "play Uno" on your party's corpse. People still bring rebirth because they can and it's safer to do so. You guys don't understand that, yes, you SHOULDN'T be wiping, however, it is a fact that no matter how good you are, you will still screw up occasionally, and that's where rebirth comes in. And especially when you want to vanquish by yourself, and you happen to be NOT an imbagon, you certainly do need rebirth to save every single bit of DP should you screw up.PikaFanLightningbolt sig 01:54, 2 November 2008 (EDT)
Er... no. It's PvE. If you die, you failed. You can spec against everything the monsters bring, and thus even "occasional" screw ups shouldn't result in death. Probably the only place in the entire game where rebirth is passable is DoA, where you cannot res at shrines or easily restart - for everything else (explorable areas, missions), those options are usually better, because wiping in the first place means that you need to tweak your build to make it not suck as much. -Auron 01:12, 2 November 2008 (EST)
Case in point: Adrin, Yas, and I went vanquishing some random part of Elona last night. Adrin, being bad like he is, completely forgot to bring any form of hex removal, meaning that I (the imbagon) continually had an uncovered soothing images on me. After I raged and we resigned, I changed the build (moved to the empathic removal gons and raged at the lack of spear swipe) and we rolled shit. No rebirth necessary. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{Bacon}} 09:42, 2 November 2008 (EST)

Total off-topic: I need some help in figuring out how to create a template

I need a crash course in creating a template for one of the Warhammer Wiki's, and I was hoping you could helping explain the details in the sorts of small, simple words a software-impaired schmuck like me requires. If you have a chance, send me an email at . Yes, that's really my email address, and I'm sorry I had to post to your discussion page about it. Thanks in advance...
Edit: If it's easier, edit my user page on the WARwiki to show me how it's done. Apophis 23:23, 8 November 2008 (EST)

A template is basically a shortcut to stop you having to type out a chunk of code every time you want to do something. There's really not much else to it; the most important part of it that wouldn't be immediately obvious (like, if you put a br tag in a template it'll show up when you use the template) is that you can use arguments. Using code such as {{{1}}} will make that bit substitute to whatever you make the first argument (the bit beyond the pipe, like so: {{Sample template|argument 1|argument 2|etc}}). The best advice I can give you is to look around the templates on wiki (this and others) and fool around in a sandbox. -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{Bacon}} 01:03, 9 November 2008 (EST)
My issue is that I'm largely out-of-the-loop, with regards to software and coding; I haven't done any relevant coding in about 15 years, and I don't count the HTML experience as being relevant. Basically, I'd like to add userboxes to the WarWiki, but I don't know enough about the coding format to effectively add material to the Template:Userbox page. That said, I've tried to look at the mediawiki pages on formatting and creating templates, and all I could think of was "WOOOOOOOSH", because it all shot clear over my head.

Pretty sure the build StS ran was that + VoR + six monks. The build was in good because Overload/Wastrel's Worry were unprottable damage piled on the lord so you got ~20000 damage on their lord when they got ~60 on yours. - Misery Is Friendly Misery Dog obaby 17:23, 17 November 2008 (EST)

Agreed but it's still concepts they can apply to GW2. Which will probably be a slightly less bad game. (I hope) 03:55, 12 January 2009 (EST)
I lack confidence in that, especially given as it took how many months for her to get around to reading it? -- Armond WarbladeArmond sig image{{Bacon}} 19:02, 12 January 2009 (EST)
sry for late reply. Anyways Linsey took a long time to reply (1.5 months) because it was the holidays and they were pushing Elite Skill Build #2. She's been busy trying to find ways to reinvent a lot of systems that would have otherwise been difficult to invent in GW before. Stuff like extra storage is actually tough because the item system is archaic and is one of the few unchanged systems since early beta. They're very basic and can only hold limited amounts of data and so she's been busy trying to find ways to give people more storage with the current item system. They really should just add 20 slot customized bags & belts and be done with it but I think the problem with that is UI space for low resolutions and they can't get the UI people very often since they are designing GW2's UI 24/7.
I criticize ArenaNet a lot too and I definitely know where you are coming from here, but I have the utmost faith in Regina & Linsey. Regina is just bad atm because there's nothing to CR. Having seen her on X-Fire, she is a very good CR when she has stuff to actually do. Linsey I have faith in if only because she does the things that no one at ArenaNet wanted to do for GW1. She nerfed grind, gave people more options to achieve those titles, and she's transparent. Even if GW1 at this point is unsaveable, the fact that the game designer is willing to answer any and all questions on her talk page is very good news to me.
The last dev update was bad news to me, because they're spending months to basically reinvent an archaic system, but in a way it's good, because there's a lot of untapped potential this new system of theirs could unlock (they're just hitting the wrong thing first IMO...more content first Anet, although maybe that's going into the April build too??? idk.). One of the big ones I'm looking forward to is the Sealed Deck system being completed this year with any hope. It was almost finished at this years PAX, so if they can spend the time to finish that & implement it Live, it'll be awesome. You gotta admit 8v8 random people & random bars with fun, if only for the laughter involved at all the bad skills seeing play. I'd probably play full time again and just play that man, that'd be awesome.
TL;DR - ArenaNet & Guild Wars sucks but I got a little more hope now than I did back during Nightfall. 11:01, 16 January 2009 (EST)
