  • to be honest though it is quite sad though that there are builds that are designed to runaway.

    It's sad and bad design because classes are designed differently with different strengths and weaknesses ?

    Not every class is designed with staying power. Some have mobility to compensate.

    There was one was one guy who thought that if it had more mobility than warrior or a z-axis teleports it was exploiting / broken.

  • I play a old support shout warrior, thats slow as hell so I mainly just find it a bit funny a lot classes can pretty much skip around the map in their terms of running, but tactical is understandable. but their is tactical retreat and then straight up nike warrior as an example

  • For instance a Mesmer at the end of this video

  • although though Mesmer has blink which is tactical why does a Mesmer need stability when it can summon clones as well as can go invisible not to mention a lot of classes rely on slight invulnerably in terms of power based damage without it being corrupted like resistance?

    Depends on how many are chasing, my average is about 7, I like to hum "I can show you the world" while they pursue.

    what do you suggest that support mesmer do in a 1 vs 3 ? /sleep while you kill him?

    na just wait for them to become a mirage because that's balanced
    and plus its world versus world if your alone your asking to die

    so whats wrong with him running away? and why did you laugh at him?

    nothing is wrong with them running away and mainly laughed because support versus support is like asking for a 4 day long fight, plus no way to catch him while in combat when running a warrior without any movement speed. like trying to hit a guardian that pops the elite meditation that makes them immune to all damage for about 4 to 5 seconds unless they have conditions on them before hand.

    There was one was one guy who thought that if it had more mobility than warrior or a z-axis teleports it was exploiting / broken.

    If that was the case it would be balanced, but it isn't. The strongest classes have all of the options combined. That's why there are so many mesmers, warriors, thieves and rangers.

    That depends on where your mobility tools are (on weapons or slots) and the cooldown they are bound to. I think the first mentioned play in a different league than guardian, engi or ele, but are not in a really bad spot.

    Seeing far less warriors and thieves there's days, it's mostly mesmer/holo/ranger that are solo

  • gebrechen.5643gebrechen.5643 Member ✭✭✭

    Roaming yesterday: Mostly deadeyes, some soulbeasts, some mesmers, mostly none of the others
    Roaming today: Mostly soulbeasts, some mesmers and a single DH and a Reaper.

    If I'd make a list it would be most likely

    • thieves
    • mesmers
    • rangers
    • warriors

    I may do this starting today - even it's without statistical value.

    Its still interesting to know encounters (could also add a "guessed type" ie marauder holo, condi fb, etc) but its affected by a many other things, such as time (I assume you arent running 24/7) or what servers you face (even a small active guild matter alot in terms of how often you meet the same classes).

    Thx for the laughs. The video starts with 3 guys (including you) ganking a core necro. I guess, that necro switched to Mesmer then at the end of the vid xD

  • Bigpapasmurf.5623Bigpapasmurf.5623 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Here is what I saw in the vid

    • Lots of fights where you outnumbered your enemy
    • Sloppy camp capture (when someone comes to defend, someone should meet them "outside" the ring so you can keep capping while they stall the defender)
    • Most of the defenders were also sloppy and didn't focus fire properly. Only the Firebrand was decent
    • A daredevil that gave up lol...that was funny
    • You showing toxic behavior that one got away from an obvious outnumbered fight that they probably wouldn't have won anyway.
    • You also had a Mesmer yourself on your side so that's kind of the "pot calling the kettle black"

    I will also say that you are making me yearn to try my old hammer build from the days of yore.

    Well you could have summed it up as "all melee healbot guardians and 40k hp warrior was unable to gank solo chrono because he used one teleport" and thats what caused this absolute marvel of a thread.

    I'm shocked, shocked I say!

    Well not that shocked.

    Yeah....I like your explanation better. Shorter and more to the point.

    If you paid attention to what your enemies were doing vs blindly spamming cc at them, you might've caught that mesmer. Instead you wasted rampage's cc while the mesmer was blocking with one of the most distinct and obvious block animations in the game (chrono shield). Which of course gave him the second block.

    I personally think Engi is high on mobility list too thanks to the double Rocket boots... Principally if they are running tools which will give them 2 seconds of superspeed after rocket boots while they are waiting the second one be avaible.

    But I agree ele Is kinda lacking on movement in their useable weapons and guardian and revenant are limited due target dependancy on their movement skills.

    Good god. After seeing your choice of weapon set, armor choices, freaking FORTY THOUSAND health, clicking your skills, and the camera shake, it's no wonder these players are able to get away from your ganks untouched. Even your rampage puts no pressure on besides CC spam.

    Hey...whats wrong with skill clickin....er.....I mean....what? I totally dont click my skills......that you can see.

    I agree! GS "nike" warrior such a joke, isn't ?
    most invulns in game, most damage in game and faster than a druid in staff\GS.
    Pls nerf.

    Well aware of that, but even them have declined.
