    This isn't entirely relevant since it was on an NPC, but regardless, this is one of the highest crits I've ever landed in WvW

    Quick guess, but I bet that hit landed after the NPCs defiance bar was broken. I see 40K+ crits pretty often on low health Tower Lords

    I suspect this screenshot was taken from the call of war weekend event where bloodlust could grant you up to 30% bonus stats. The numbers don't add up otherwise.

    On the topic of if a warrior has a 1 shot build, kill shot will get the job done. Nothing else will get the job done. Gunflame and eviscerate do not qualify unless there is trickery involved like your opponent not even having fully exotic armor. The killshot warrior build I would put in a different class than the other gimmicky builds that try and 1 shot people because it is just plain bad. A lot of these 1 shot builds have the ability to sneak up on people and mobility and stealth to escape. The warrior has none of that and requires adrenaline to use killshot. You can use skills to give full adrenaline but if you are not in combat you are only getting level 2 kill shot. The skill is easily dodge and you also root your self, a lot of times the target ends up out of range.

    That is why you don't see people running around trying to 1 shot players with killshot. Why choose that option when you are more likely to fail than succeed when there are plenty of better options to choose from. There are semi legitimate rifle warrior builds, but their objective is not to 1 shot people, rather just to consistently put up bit numbers and pick people off who are at 50%-70% who feel safe.

  • You've got to stop thinking of GW2 as an MMORPG. At this point it's a first person shooter. My proof is they added deadeye with a sniper rifle last expansion. And all these one-shots? Well those are just headshots sorry you all got outplayed.

    Nice reference to the over-moderated GW2 forums where kitten replaces anything that could be offensive.

    "Warriors cannot be one shot" would be a better argument.
    Though I'm sure there's a video disproving that somewhere, too.
    Seriously, they tanky af out of the box.

    Wrong, everything but warrior...
    Warrior cannot 1 shot.

    what is axe burst, rifle burst, final thrust?

    Dont mind him, he always crying an ocean of tears about how bad warrior is... pve/wvw/pvp... such dead class is meta in all of those... I wonder ... how ... they are so overnerfed daaaamn xD

    LOL final thrust... i don't know if to cry or laugh.
    The OP is talking about how most classes can 1 shot you without any counter to it.
    If you think that warrior can 1 shot, then you are a bad player.

    Rifle can definetly one-shot. The others... mjeh I give you that. More like two-shot. While also being immune to damage/cc/condi for half a day and regening more hp than many classes does damage so it balances out for the poor weak warrior.

    jahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    if the players stand still that is.
    The warrior cannot 1 shoot because of this simple fact:

    • you can see all the skills the warrior is doing!
      SIMPLE!

    The OP is saying/complaining about 1 shoot that has no counter.

    Seeing skills doesnt really matter.

    On my mesmer I can counter other mesmers with ease because they are so predictable. The more cheese condi the easier to fight them. Thieves? Haha... "One-shot" zerkers are pushovers because I made a hybrid specifically designed to take the burst of roamers and counter hard. Sustains are much harder. And then warriors... One of the few classes that I have problems fighting. Because I can see them, but not stop them, damage them and most of the time not even block them as their own full counter goes straight through mine.

    Knowing how to fight matters more. Especially when you know how to fight your own.

    Lets stop with the useless talk and instead show me a video where there is a one shot build for warrior and then we will talk.
    One shot on warrior does not exist! Warrior is the only class that cannot 1 shot and I dare you to look for a video.

    Ok.

    Googles "GW2 one shot warrior" from 2018

    First result is a video with 15-20K killshots thats literally named "one shot warrior roaming".

    What do we do know?

    @enkidu.5937 said:
    watched both "one shot warrior roaming" / "one shot berserker" vids
    not a single one shot (or close to)
    it even took them some secs to kill afk's
    disapointed a lot :/

    Exactly, this is one example not doing your homework right. The fool goes to google, then searches for 1 shot warrior videos and does not even watch the video.
    And just look at how many likes he gets, this is a clear example of "people like what they want to hear."

    My claim still stands "Warrior cannot 1 shot" prove me wrong!

    It was taken over a year ago. I was commanding at the time (in the original screenshot I can see my tag) and there were about 7 people with me from the looks of the mini map.

    EDIT:
    Also, in regards to those blah-blah-blahing about my initial comment. I wasn't responding to the OP. I was disproving that Warrior can one shot. Doesn't matter if it's a gimmick or if it's an objectively bad build. Anything that can one shot you is a bad build in the first place because it means you're sacrificing a lot of defenses and putting all your hopes on your one shot combos. Which technically, are not one shots. They're multi-hits.

    Edit: on a serious note

    24 seconds in. hit's a person running into the camp for 20133-
    20k essentially. Most roamers run around wvw with anywhere between 17-20k health.
    That is a one shot.
    from a warrior.

    oh please ...he specifically asked for a ONE SHOT. A 12k gunflame followed by an immediate 13k arcing slice doesnt count since it requires nigh-perfect execution, 150 IQ, intense setup and years of practice. TWO SHOTS are perfectly balanced people....nothing to see here, so move along!

    The problem with this argument is that there is also incredibly tanky builds that are nearly unkillable by any sigle player unless they spec full damage.

    Counterplay definetly exist. People are just generally too lazy to see it, its easier to complain about what kills them. The short version is damage counter bunker, hybrid counter damage and the bunker give both hybrid and damage time to do their job.

    Ya except this isn't spvp and most people can't just swap to nomads to take out the deadeye dancing around spawn.

    i would really like to see how you kill a deadeye while you are in nomads, first time i hear that this stat combo was a good thing to take out a deadeye.

    I see both ridiculously high damage and ridiculous tankiness from time to time. It's hard to tell if any of it is normal because I suspect 3rd party software is involved in a few cases. Just this weekend I ended up fighting in downed state with an Ele and when their downed health reached <1% it mysteriously shot back up to 50%.

    This is currently a bug with mistform

    Does that bug cause no vapor animation, able to continue attacking and taking damage?

    The bug is that instead of going in mistform in downstate you'll recieve health back to 75% instead of the mistform

  • Gotta interject here with regards to Warrior:

    Rifle is a gimmick weapon, no warrior who isn't memeing will be using this. One decent burst doesn't make up for a fairly meh weapon, and projectiles are horrible in WvW anyway and shouldn't be used seriously. Running mainhand axe is also a bad idea when sword is a clearly superior alternative (for sword leaps alone). And actually landing axe burst in WvW is a miracle in and of itself. Final Thrust is kinda kitten but lets face it, if you're under 50% health, you were dead anyway. 20k Final Thrust is just for jollies.

    Fair point.

    Given the posters point who made the original Warrior reference though, the same could be said for many of the other ‘one shots’ in the game.

    E-Sports! ....

    Ok well this is what happens when a system is too open and allows you to pick a wide variety of specs/stats/skills, there's bound to be broken stuff somewhere, bound to be builds that deal way too much damage or have too much survival, and some things like dire let you do both. Then two expansions in a row damage and speed of combat increased with the new specs.

    It is what it is, it's not going to change.

    I don't think anyone is defending the build.
    More so it was people telling another "warrior main" who seems to be so out of touch with reality and is too busy white knighting for his class that yes,
    the warrior is capable of one-shotting someone.
    Second vid I posted was just that, a warrior taking out someone with a 20k hit.

    Again, it's a meme build as you said, and the chances of running into someone doing that is rare.
    but it is possible.

    On a a more "on topic"-note however,

    I have to agree with OP tho. Damage across the board is simply too high.
    The two expansions we had so far have introduced massive powercreep to the game.
    Higher damage, higher healing, condi and boonspam, etc.
    Problem is, that player healthpools and amour rating are the same as they were back in 2012.
    5-digit damage values are completely ridiculous (one-shot or not) if you look at player healthpools percentage-wise.

    I recently advocated for some type of a damage and healing modifier in PvP-centric modes on the PvP-forums.
    Other big MMOs (like WoW for instance) also had to introduce such systems at some point, so I personally think it couldnt be too bad for GW2 as well.

    For those wondering what I mean:
    Something along the lines "15% less dmg received from players" and "15% less healing received from players".
    All sources, period. Any condition, any power dmg, any healing (combo fields, regen ticks, barrier, all of it).

    Yes, this wouldnt be fixing any balance issues, but it at least would prevent people from getting 2 shot from random stuff thats flung around (like a 13k aoe arcing slice on a 8 second CD). Currently strong classes would still be strong and weak classes would still be weak. It just extends fights for 15% (assuming thats the modifier).

    And for those of you, that fear the introduction of a "bunker" meta, since defensive skills wouldnt be affected by such a system:
    Lets look at endure pain for instance and assume a fight against a warrior lasts 180 seconds (3 minutes) currently.

    At 180 seconds the warrior gets to cast endure pain 180/30 = 6 times.
    Prolong that fight by 15% and you get to 207 seconds.
    At 207 seconds the warrior gets to cast endure pain 207/30 = 6.9 times.

    So a 30 second defensive would get 1 additional cast for a 3 and a half minute long fight ....which already is an excruciatingly long, fringe-case scenario.
    And the trade off is not getting absolutely demolished in 2 hits.

    Lets stop with the useless talk and instead show me a video where there is a one shot build for warrior and then we will talk.
    One shot on warrior does not exist! Warrior is the only class that cannot 1 shot and I dare you to look for a video.

    This isn't entirely relevant since it was on an NPC, but regardless, this is one of the highest crits I've ever landed in WvW

    If you'd like, I can do some recording this weekend to see how many one shots I can manage. I guarantee you it can be done, and with relative ease. In fact, it can do true one shots, meaning not rapid multi-hits like a Mesmer shatter for example.

    Also, here you go. A build easily capable of one shots:
    http://gw2skills.net/editor/?vJEQJAURjEdQdH23BuhAnIGICK9Lm+twCgIYAuyIDWeA-jFSBABLcEAoU9nNOEAmpEEPdBAcBAy/BAc1+jyvAAIA38mZzbG4m38m38m3srbzsZ28m3MpAGVrF-w

    Healing activates Peak Performance (+33% damage), using both Signets activates Signet Mastery (+200 Ferocity), Burst Mastery = +7% more damage, Warriors Sprint = +3% damage, Scholar runes = +5% damage, Berserker's Power = +21% damage. Most of which will be active before you hit your target. Shouldn't be hard to get between 20 and 25k crits on squishies. And with Quickness, it's a much shorter cast time + unblockable from the Signet.

    All that aside, it is extremely telegraphed and the build is a gimmick. Meaning it can't do much else besides one shot cheese. Still, even without a dedicated gimmick build, Warrior is easily capable of extremely high damage. I think you need to let go of the idea that Warrior can't pump out insane levels of damage.

    Video of 1 shot builds or they do not exist. HINT: they do not exist, so don't waste your time searching because I already did.
    That combat log only proves that you were on a serg, warrior cannot reach that damage level by itself.

    I am still waiting for a 1 shot video for warrior.

    Sadly, it seems Grogert Wolfborn either deleted or made his vid private/unlisted. He did have a vid i could have given you where he pretty much one shots many people. Basically the build is full zerk Spellbreaker with sword/dagger and GS. Strength/Discipline/SB. Something like this http://gw2skills.net/editor/?vJAQNAsYRAldsQEYGBgIwAQ5LM92C4/4j8TG-jVROwAA2fYkyPi6DAr+jMlgkCoKJbA-w
    The trick is to Bull's Charge which procs peak performance and then follow up with dagger 4# Wastrel's Ruin which doubles in damage if your target isn't using any skills, they won't be if you've successfully cc'd them. The numbers can go really high on squishy targets. The charge itself hits like a truck and then you follow up with a ~14k or higher Wastrel's Ruin. The down side is less defenses, melee and less likely to catch people off guard than say a thief. A guildie has been using this build in wvw for fun. It's definitely harder to play, but the bursts you land do feel sweet. Maybe contact Grogert, he's a very skilled warrior and a cool dude, he could share the build in greater detail.
    Edit: Talked with Grogert, his vid was taken down by youtube for some reason, still im sure he'd help you out with the build should you ask him.

  • first vid on youtube when you search for one shot war, in the first 20sec you see him crit for 20k with rifle , imo the quicknes gunflame is still better (and harder to dodge) but core war is doing alot of dmg too

    On a a more "on topic"-note however,

    I have to agree with OP tho. Damage across the board is simply too high.
    The two expansions we had so far have introduced massive powercreep to the game.
    Higher damage, higher healing, condi and boonspam, etc.
    Problem is, that player healthpools and amour rating are the same as they were back in 2012.
    5-digit damage values are completely ridiculous (one-shot or not) if you look at player healthpools percentage-wise.

    I recently advocated for some type of a damage and healing modifier in PvP-centric modes on the PvP-forums.
    Other big MMOs (like WoW for instance) also had to introduce such systems at some point, so I personally think it couldnt be too bad for GW2 as well.

    And the trade off is not getting absolutely demolished in 2 hits.

    My biggest issue with this kind of action is that the game since HoT and PoF has reduced cool downs across the board as part of this carebear "nerfing hurts twice as much as buffing so all we'll do is buff most of the time" idiotology. This leads to the spam you said but it doesn't make the game any more fun as the get out of jail free cards get lower making it incredibly forgiving and when you couple that with the power creep you get very forgiving builds that are a very serious threat to experienced players from even average players.

    There's also a lesser brought up aspect too, ANet have been buffing core traits and skills on some classes since HoT and PoF when they were considered extremely poorly represented and weak in the meta by all accounts. What this leads to is some class/build combos that are incredibly strong like core guard, core S/D thief before the last nerf. You also have something like ranger which has insane synergy and power even in core but at the other end of the spectrum are things like core mesmer and I would say core necro and engy but ANet seems to be buffing them now in the last round of balance patches though the engy changes also buff holo because LUL.

    This leads to a really sharp contrast between what is meta and what is not, it's even more harsh if you're limited by expansions or don't want to play condi or power. This makes the game a lot less fun and even more so when power creep makes the alternative to what you'd like to run stronger but your build is still back in 2014 in terms of combat ability. Ironically no-one thinks of this kind of nerfing and how much that hurts the community instead only focusing on the direct nerfs which hurt at the time but after a few months people largely don't care about.

    Generally speaking its okay for some skills, or skill combinations, to do high amounts of burst damage. But these kind of burst damage should always come at a a cost and a heavy amount of skill and/or risk involved. Things have been getting out of hand for a long time. Best example are Revenant Hammer and Longbow ranger. These are long range skills, yet they are able to deal huge amounts of damage. In case of Rev Hammer the skills themself completly lack counterplay as most of them are not even projectiles. Its not okay for a long range auto attack to deal that much damage. Skill 2 on both of these weapons are busted damage wise. The damage would even be too high for a meele attack. In case of rev it gets even more severe skill 5 is a ranged AOE CC skill that deals huge amount of damage. CC skills should not deal damage. Ranged skills should not deal that much damage either. To top it of the cooldown is even at 15 seconds.

    There are usually a few very simple rules when balancing skill damage:

    Long Ranged attacks should deal much less damage then meele attacks. (Rev Hammer, Ranger Longow, Ele Staff, Mesmer GS, Thief rifle)
    CC Skills should deal lower damage. AOE CC Skills should deal much lower or no damage at all. (Rev Hammer, Scrapper Hammer, Warrior Hammer)
    Skills should have a clear identity - a skill thats a gapcloser and a evade or a gapcloser and a stun should not deal much damage, thats not the purpose of the skill. (A lot of warrior skills, a lot of rev skills e.g. sword 3, staff 5, mesmer mantras to some degree)
    Skills that lack counterplay should not exist, and if so, they should not do much damage. (Every attack coming from stealth, Rev sword 3)
    Complete Damage immunity should not allow any actions (no stomps, no rezzes, no burst damage)
    Partial damage immunity should be very rare and on a very long cooldown (Reasoning is these skills completly negate gear investment, allowing to reach very high damage trough stats without the need for defensive stats while still providing very strong defense)
    Auto Attacks should not deal much damage (Thief, Ranger Longbow, Holosmith, Reaper, and so on)

    These points all dont mean that meele skills should be allowed to deal such high amounts of damage either, but these skills should be granted more damage because thats their sole purpose.

    Overall, the deciding factor on what deals the most damage should be stat investment. The fact that some skills and mechanics are just OP on a isolated skill damage basis and the fact that some classes get way too much defense baseline, without stat scaling is one of the biggest problems of the powercreep in this game. The other factor is that the overall balance is very biased towards power damage - there are a lot of skills to remove conditions, to prevent condition damage alltogether (in form of resistance) but no such rules apply for power damage, damage modifiers on traits are heavily biased towards power skills also.

    The fact that these aspects got so out of hand resulted in the opposite getting a hefty powercreep as well - healing and boons - they are broken too in a attempt to easy the pain of powercreep in power damage.

    Damage is too high Only for people who run tanky builds.

    One can run power with toughness and vitality and still benefit from other damage enhancing modifiers in a group setting (and there are many). The end result, is this tanky build can run around critting till the cows come home with fairly high damage, even against other classes who run tanky. But what happens when this same tanky build hits a zerk class? They kill them in 2-4 hits.. soooo why exactly is this allowed?

    If a player chooses to run zerker, they should always be able to down someone even in the tankiest build with damage reduction modifiers in 1-4 hits. The trade-off is, they get whacked usually in 1-4 hits from any class, no matter what gear or build they're running. The game is far too forgiving damage wise for people who run tanky.

    I've said this before; power, precision, and ferocity should not exist on any gear containing toughness or vitality. Furthermore, those who choose to run lots of toughness and vitality, should barely benefit (or not benefit at all) from might, ferocity, or even quickness. Think of it this way, if a tanky dude was to sit in front of a zerker target and just continually press "1", it should take probably a good 30-60 seconds to kill that zerker target if they remained stationary.

    That's what needs to happen; people that want to run tanky need to have their damage massively scaled down at least 75% or more. Then the problem is solved, an entire tanky melee train leaps on you swinging.. they'd be lucky to knock out 10% of the targets health. But those who choose to live on the edge and go glassy, absolutely must have the ability to down any class in any build in the tankiest of gear in 1-4 hits, because they go down in 1-4 hits.

    I havn't forgotten about condition damage either. Condition damage or duration should not exist on toughness or vitality gear either.

    I think its less about gear tbh and more about how some classes have developed over the years.
    Maybe my PoV is a bit different in that regard, since im mainly a PvP player and not really invested in the WvW meta.

    The access to 25 might, perma fury, quickness and a vast array of damage modifiers paired with low CD defensives and high uptime of defensive boons simply allows for insanely forgiving playstyles.

    If I have easy access to 25 might and high fury uptime, I can built very defensively and still hit like a truck. If I have tons of low CD defenses and damage mitigation I can built very offensively and still survive just fine.
    Its not uncommon to see people use defensives just to cover their burst windows instead of saving them for opportune counter-play moments.
    Which is a big part why GW2 player combat feels like a massive spamfest. There is very little tactical/systematical gameplay anymore.

    Regardless of spec and gear: It is completely unacceptable to be able to kill anybody in 1-4 hits.

    Deadeye, its "one shot" has a massive tell and most of those one-shot builds have zero additional toughness. When a player hears the bhrrrrrr, dodge. It is that simple. Backstab versions are far more dangerous but also have to get up close and personal typically on a glassy build. Thieves also self-cannibalize their own class mates. Most that run a thief, die a lot outside of the most careful carrion players.

    Winters Bite is an entirely different problem but at least it requires a fairly decent windup... course it doesn't have a tell so when it lands it can one shot even hardened players. IMO it is the current hardest hitting skill in the game. Barrage is its own sort of pain particularly when there are two of them pew-pew'ing.

    Warrior Kill Shot is a joke except it is on a class with a massive HP pool, heavy armor, solid escape, multi-invulns, tons of boon, reflect, etc. If it had a clean "one shot", the warrior which is already strong would easily be the most OP class in small scale.

    Mirage blow up is real but requires decent play and a bit glassy to pull off. Mirage condi that drops dozen plus stacks of torment is far more prevalent, easier to play and ultimately more dangerous due to its tanky nature. No class should have stealth, evasion, teleports and invuln in the same build.

    Engi variants... see Mirage. They are broken in my opinion. Virtually no downside to running one. Strong escape, stealth, evasion, multi-invuln, stuns, etc.

    Necro and its variants... they can hit hard but they are easy to kite. They are mostly a walking bag outside of a zerg.

    Ele and its variants can be deadly. The electrical attacks coupled with stuns can drop a heavily armored player in about a second. They also own the opposite end where they are virtually unkillable outside of multiple attackers. They move well but are a bit clunky in their rotations.

    Guardians... see Ele above. They move slow but their spike can be devastating. Their sustain is also impressive when built tanky.

    Revs... eh... some dangerous builds but mostly easily kited.

    Everyone is complaining how much powercreep we have right now while people don't even know what you could have pulled off back in (for example) 2013. While its true that access to might was pretty limited, protection wasn't as common either. Quickness was +100% attack speed, Longbow had 1800 range, stacking buffs were a thing and you could get additional stats from builds. Yes oneshots were not that common but counterpressuring such builds wasn't easy either. Look at old Youtube footage and see what people pulled off with Rapidfire or even DD oneshot Thief.

    So yes I agree that a few classes should be toned down, but for the love of god don't argue that everything was better back in the days. Maybe some of you want post HOT meta back (right after the expansion) where everything hits like a wet noodle...

    If you havent been following the forums for the last several months, that actually is what people want. No one likes to die, so obviously being immortal is what the pvp community wants, fights never ending until a friend shows up or you mess up your sustain rotation.

    The problem with this argument is that there is also incredibly tanky builds that are nearly unkillable by any sigle player unless they spec full damage.

    Counterplay definetly exist. People are just generally too lazy to see it, its easier to complain about what kills them. The short version is damage counter bunker, hybrid counter damage and the bunker give both hybrid and damage time to do their job.

    Ya except this isn't spvp and most people can't just swap to nomads to take out the deadeye dancing around spawn.

    i would really like to see how you kill a deadeye while you are in nomads, first time i hear that this stat combo was a good thing to take out a deadeye.

    It's called an example.

    You also used to have to blow multiple utilities to get a 5 digit stealth hit on a thief. It also required a melee hit.
