What should I run in pvp

Wolfe.3097Wolfe.3097 Member ✭✭

Looking at this forum, it's pretty volatile looking.

Look I get it you want balance changes and all that.

But me? I just want to know what some classes that are both good in wvw (roaming) and spvp.

I was eyeing revenant, guardian or thief. But I'll roll with any class if it means I can get to mess people up.

Please and thank you

  • Thief, ele, ranger are good for roaming and pvp. Ranger not as much in pvp

    May i ask what kind of Thief, Ele, Rev and Ranger do you have in mind: Daredevil staff, Daredevil D/P, core condi, Deadeye Rifle? Being a Thief doesn't mean much these days :) I only like to play DD Staff +p/p (or SB) Theif but outside of pve it's not a very strong build ... Condi double dagger used to be strong due to "perma" evasion Dual Wield. Is it still viable?
    Also I guess we are talking about Tempest condi Ele D/F? Or Weaver sword? Burn Guardian or Firebrand condi? I've found condi Mirrrage Staff + Axe or Scepter/Torch with PU build pretty fun in both pvp and WvW: 3 x Stealth and confusing players with your clones really helps staying alive and helps me escape if i get outnumbered.

  • @RedAvenged.5217 thanks. That helps. I made a thief, reaper, guardian, engineer and revenant and tested them with the level 80 trial boost. Revenant had the most interesting skills to me. So that's what I'll be trying. Going to level her normally for a while to get a better feel then use the level 80 boost.

    @Sifu.9745 way above my head man. You are speaking greek to me at this point.

  • watch the forums and pick the class that is most complained about
    works every time

    yeah was looking for something that could do largely everything, that looks like revenant, helps i found them most interesting to play at level 80 via the trial system.

    Ele is not good at anything besides being a res glyph + aura bot.

    You go to your character screen

    Hit „Create New Character“

    Make a Necro

    Go Beserker/Marauder amulet

    Take whatever traits you like + the Reaper line

    Choose Lich Form as your elite

    gg you are now a Plat player

    Lmao you have no clue...

    Back to the question: rev would probably be a solid pick it has power builds for pvp, condi/hybrid or power setups for wvw roaming and is still a strong zerg backliner... keep in mind that rev has a steeper learning curve than other classes like ranger guard warri or nec though.

    If you wanna steamroll ppl in wvw roaming with low risk high reward gameplay, play dp shadowarts thief lul

  • Banner warrior or Revenant if you like to do teamfights.
    Banners stack on top of buffs, as do the revenant abilities.
