So I just spent some time and resources getting Marauder gear for this build because I hoped I could get more effective in WvW roaming:
I've applied the following exceptions to the build:
I'll probably need some time to learn dueling with the build and actually get effective at the PvP aspect of WvW roaming, but after trying out the build on camps I noticed the following:
CAMPS ARE HARD! Previously I had a dumb simple all-Carrion condi build on my thief with which I could spam Choking Gas and jump around the camp NPCs with Lotus Training to stack poison, or use Dagger Storm to get the same effect, and they'd all die pretty soon. Low effort, quick results. But with this build it seems I have to pick the NPCs one by one and actually put some serious effort into the fight or else risk actually getting killed by them.
Is this normal? Am I doing something terribly wrong? L2P? The other character I've been playing in WvW since months is a zerg scourge and clearing camps is totally easy peasy with that build once I get all NPCs on one spot so I thought a roaming build should be more effective on it, not less.
