Been using this build in Random Arenas for a while, now. It's pretty WIN. Try it out and post your resulting experiences. Thanks. ^^ --BlazingBurdy 12:19, 5 February 2009 (EST)

Welcome, I dont play PvP but dual stance seems wrong to me as well as weak attack chain also dont add build tags on your userpage thanks. --Anonimous. D: 07:13, 6 February 2009 (EST)
Sorry about the tags part. I'm open to any training on how to put builds up for critiques and/or ratings. However, the chain I prescribed isn't weak. You have an unblockable lead attack, deep wound and an aoe dual attack meant for decimating melee as well as foes that bundle up on bridges, narrow passages, etc.. Not to mention that WotA and Crit. Eye combined will boost criticals on daggers to the point where it exceeds that of degen pressure from builds like Palm Strikers (which use poison, bleeding, etc.. which draw cond., ff, etc.. completely negate). I've used my build repeatedly and I have experienced a higher success rate even against high-ranking players with devastating builds (comprised of everything ranging from extreme hex pressure to the heaviest melee/ranged attacks). Try it first, then come and tell me if your thought it was weak or not. If you haven't tried it and used it in the ways I've provided, then please do not exercise judgement on it until you do so. Thanks. --BlazingBurdy 18:13, 6 February 2009 (EST)
EXTREME lol @ Way of the Assassin and Distortion. Cancel your elite stance for a 3 sec dodge attacks stance?? niiiiiiice. And since you reamed the previous poster on his suggestion, i'm sure i'll get something along the lines of "try it then comment". All i can say is it's a sin with little damage compared to most sins, only inflicts 1 condition, doesn't knock down, no self healing/cleansing, ...etc. it doesn't do any 1 good thing well, including killing. Danstokes 23:57, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
It's straight dw's and dps. No kd is required for killing, only deepwound and extreme damage.

Distortion is used as an anti-pressure and I've won plenty of 10-wins in Random Arenas against even the toughest, high-ranked competitors. I've won so much with it that, it I play long enough and beat teams over and over, they'll spec against me with enchant removals and wild strike/blow in attempts at defeating me. So, this build is proven to win. --BlazingBurdy 13:46, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Either people spec against you, or Wild Blow / Ench Removal simply is common. I know the answer to that one; you don't seem to. --- VipermagiSig -- (srs Viper) (talk) 14:03, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
What's the question I don't know the answer to that you so slanderously speak of? If you don't try the build, how are you going to like or dislike it? Use it and come back to my page with results! Remember, half the battle comes from proper usage/management of this build. This means you can't go all willy-nilly with improper timing of stance swapping or not covering Haste with Distortion, etc. If you absolutely MUST have KDs in your build, this build is NOT for you. Go with some of the already-existing builds for that. As far as cleansing goes, most PvX Melee builds HAVE NO SELF-CLEANSING in it. Does this mean it's no longer a great build? If that's the case, there's a whole list of builds that need to come off the 'Greats' section because of their lack of 'self-cleansing. --BlazingBurdy 14:53, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
The question wether Wild Blow and ench removal is common, or that people take it solely because you are playing. Also, I never even looked at the build, so cut the crap. --- VipermagiSig -- (srs Viper) (talk) 14:58, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
Your concern (or lack thereof) about my build and/or it's usage is of no consequence to me. Either you use it and like it, or you don't and just go about your business. I can give a shit less which path

you take. I'm simply putting it out there and telling readers this build is the sheeit! --BlazingBurdy 15:13, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Congratulations on making a bad build. You're so cool! —ǥrɩɳsɧƴɖɩđđɭɘş Grinshpon blinky cake 12:28, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Higher Expertise much. --Shazzydiddles 03:52, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
Scavenger Strike much? Used this build. First time up with mediocre team (won 10 consec). The point in it is to have max Spear/BM for damagez. --BlazingBurdy 03:53, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
I also won a 12-consec, cutting into TA for two match-ups! That 13th one was.. well, unlucky! >.> This build can kill a target within 9-10 seconds. --BlazingBurdy 19:11, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
Won 5 more 10-consec wins with it today! :P --BlazingBurdy 17:00, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
Like someone once told me on a build I made--"Wins in RA mean nothing, because, as the name suggests, it's random. Meaning random skills by random players with random levels of pvp. Try it in TA if it's going to be an Arena build" Greanths Warrior 05:36, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
Seriously though- drop the paragon secondary entirely, give yourself 14/12/9 Beast Mastery/Expertise/Marksmanship, take an r9 15^50 recurve bow, and replace Merciless Spear with D-Shot. Also, the fact that you're using a pet to do damage, and Otyugh's Cry is not on your bar is just bad. A pet with +24armor and unblockable attacks is gud I herd. Drop bestial fury for Otyugh's. If you're bad at interrupting, just replace Merciless Spear with Brutal Strike rather than d-shot- or just swap d-shot for savage shot and spam the heck out of it, idc. ~ Rayala 21:50, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
No DW is worse than bad! Where am I gonna fit it of not by taking out dw or IAS? I've won against high-ranked competitors and there's absolutely nothing wrong with this build. Any changes and it conforms to your standards (low). --BlazingBurdy 16:20, 8 April 2009 (UTC)


Stop posting. --71.229 03:54, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Are you actually any good at ranger? Considering you were telling 2 high ranked ones they were wrong on mels shot page. Reunion 12:49, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

Yes. I've played them all and I find a R/P (in 4v4) to be more efficient in the long run with damage/pressure than a bow ranger; 8v8 is totally different. The only perk with bow rangers is M.Bane, D.Shot and S.Savage.. rest is crap tbh. Not to mention that most skills & spells used and abused nowadays is 1/4-3/4 activations.. and you always need a line of sight, which means rangers are shit outta luck. --BlazingBurdy 03:22, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
You answered his question. might have been the opposite of what you intended but oh well, you called dshot a minor perk. you also argued for spears over bows by saying you can't rupt for crap. 3/4 is ruptable easily if you don't suck at anticipation. You also said that there is nothing worth rupting, which again proves your extreme talent for, and knowledge of pvp. Also: you used the LoS arguement, in saying spears are better than bows, which is point blank dumbfounding. the brute intelligence in that post amazes me, congrats on being a good and funny troll if you were trying to be one, if not, stop telling who know what they are doing how to play ranger. Thanks for the laugh, Bad soles 03:48, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
It's not a laugh or a troll, and anticipation can only take you so far because all rupts come with fucking aftercast (not to mention I'm not some no-life nerd that can count every fucking recharging skill on someone's bar off the top of my fucking head while worrying about line-of-sight and positioning) ..not to mention everybody runs blockfag nowadays so Magebane's the only viable answer to all. Dshot's good only for backline relief but sucks at damage. Bow rangers are only good in 8v8 anymore tbh, which makes R/P's much more appealing since they can deliver greater damage and pressure over time than bow rangers. Anet WTFPWN'd rangers in these last few updates so they have almost no viability anymore other than for split-degen, rupting and ganking NPCs. So, GTFO if you don't like my pref; never asked you to anywayz. --BlazingBurdy 16:35, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
I heard that rangers spread massive pressure and have the most utility in the game. I also heard that mels is the most commonly run ranger elite. LifeWikiLOD7 20:26, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
To be honest 3/4s are really easy to reflex, you don't need to anticipate. Being able to qknock for 1/4 casts also helps, but thats to do with not being bad at ranger. I fail to see how dshot is only good at backline relief - A dshot on woh actually wins games. At least when i TA, i would not lose to some shitty build which runs r/p over bow (unless it is hexes, but r/p is run for a completely different reason then, but i don't often lose to hexes anyway :P). Saying rangers have no viability apart from splitting and ganking NPCs is actually hilarious. Please don't voice your opinions on stuff unless you actually have some experience at at least an average rank like ~75ish. Reunion 20:50, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
Like rank has any meaning other than you're a snobby 1337ist pig who thinks that different-colored capes or a couple of words under your feet will make you any less of a nerd and threat to tolerance than you already are. Sorry, but I don't have twitchy reflexes (already stated twice with this line) and I used to do some d-shotting on WoH back before this massive ranger-bashing that's been going on lately. Rangers have been brought to their knees, told to open wide and think of watermelon & chicken. They suck now (period). Rupting 3/4's takes a bit of luck, too (hardly skill). If you call predicting skill castings skill? ..then you're sadly mistaken because real "good" players don't always cast on "recharge", which means you prolly beat bad players anyhow.. and I ain't no nerd who counts recharging skills and times (like someone posting on my user talk page *rolls eyes*). 1337ist nerds, making up for your real-life shortcomings GTFO x2 >=P... --BlazingBurdy 21:24, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
Predicting has very little to do with skill recharge, you really have no idea what you're talking about. Yeah, because playing at a higher rank means you're a nerd? I'm pretty sure I'll have less hours played than you bro. Just cuz you play higher up doesn't make you play more :\ And by rank, I mean, why on earth are you saying r/p is more effective when you run it against terrible people? Reunion 21:47, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
4v4 is where rangers shine. the ability to screw ever other person on their team wins matches. They get kills, can be extremely defensive if need-be, and turn one death into 4. --|Hipowi sig Hipowi pew pew pew 22:43, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
You saying rangers suck is the reason why you should uninstall. LifeWikiLOD7 23:07, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
If I skimmed correctly, he said that bow rangers are fine and dandy in gvg, but outclassed by spear rangers in TA. probly worse?--|Hipowi sig Hipowi pew pew pew 23:32, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

You really run a R/P that's based around Hexway in a balanced team (W/E, N/W, Mo/W, R/P)? Frostysig9000FrostytheAdmin 23:34, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

yes, d-shot is not enough dmg for him--|Hipowi sig Hipowi pew pew pew 19:19, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
No, Ranger's not enough damage for me. --BlazingBurdy 02:55, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
I think you should listen to OP.- 02:03, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
I think you should stfu + gtfo. --BlazingBurdy 12:43, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
And I think listening to elders (aka: people who have more experience in something) is usually a good thing. You don't tell your grampa to shut the fuck up and get the fuck out now do you? Listen, learn, improve and get better.--Ikimono"a rabid grizzly bear"Monk-Paragon-icon 05:35, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

So sorry, Grandpa! I put super glue on your dentures jokingly.. >.<. Too bad you yourself can hardly hear or listen, you're too old to learn anything else and you have nothing left ahead of you to improve upon. Soz again, Grandpa! --BlazingBurdy 06:43, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Well since you're apparently calling me, and not the person i was gesturing that towards, grandpa, I'm not sending you a birthday gift card for being retarded and still not taking things on a "this could possibly improve you" basis.--Ikimono"a rabid grizzly bear"Monk-Paragon-icon 11:32, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
