Buff suggestion for hammer AA

Make the first two swings 1/4 cast time and the third one 1/2 cast time

    I don't think seemingly random buffs to weapons is a good idea. Honestly warrior hammer needs more help than guardian hammer.

    I don't think it's random. It's slow as sin. Warrior hammer is an easy fix, as long as they buff stun damage

    they need to reduce all profs # 2 cds. sounding like a borken record here.

    i think the symbol on auto would be better on mighty blow if MB had a short cd. if you could leap, blast, and get prot all in one then it would be in a better spot. no other weapon has a symbol on auto and its only ok on ham since its so bad, but with buffs it would get out of control.

    Te lazla otstara.

    How does Warrior Hammer need more help? Guardian's is so slow that you can't hit anyone with half a brain. Warriors skills are at least at a decent speed to land, regardless of damage.

    Warrior's Hammer is just as slow and does no damage. There's a reason why nobody uses it.

    This is why I can't discuss with people like YuiRS, he/she does no research. Took me 5 seconds to look up the speed numbers for both weapons. Fastest skill on Guardian is 3/4, Warrior is 1/2. Not counting the auto's are all 1/2 whereas Guardian's last is 1 1/4.

    Edit: I recommend not conversing with those who do not bring actual numbers to their arguments and in fact, blocking them is probably far healthier. Thank you.

    Sure. Actually play some Hammer Warrior to see if it's fast enough. It's not. You're just extremely biased.

    Guardian Hammer should have its Symbol removed and have a faster swing.
    It's primarily a Bruiser weapon and having the slow swing hurts it too much to even bother with the whole auto chain.

    Imo, move the Symbol over to Mighty Blow (Hammer 2) instead.

    If I play a stupid build, I deserve to die.
    If I beat people on a stupid build, I deserve to get away with it.

    I never said it was fast enough, I said it was faster than Guardians to which you said it wasn't. I proved my statement with facts. You're welcome.

    The Hammer AA does well as the primary symbol source of the Vulnerability Symbol smasher build I'm currently using.

    Changing it could destroy the build, or the changes could be adapted into the build to replace the loss of AA symbol from Hammer, if any changes happens in the future.

    Dunno if they ever gonna change it, since Guardian is now the only profession able to sustain near constant Quickness.
