I couple people over the last couple months asked me for a ranger greatsword guide and I was in the middle of moving and have since deleted the mails (that was an accident) so I hope you guys find this! I jotted down some ideas that I knew/remembered about GS and I tried to throw them all into 1 video. The production quality is very low and I might have missed somethings but I covered everything I could think of during my mini brainstorm. Take a look, and if you have any questions or anything, I'm always happy to help!
Also if you want like weapon combos and what not or how to play certain ranger builds, certain match ups, etc. happy to help with that too. I have a much better internet connection now so I need to up the quality of my stream, but it should make things MUCH easier now for me on the streaming front.
Really the skill ceiling is much lower and the things you could do with auto evades and GS throw are now gone. Because of this, the only things to keep in mind are swoop is an evade and more importantly a leap finisher for stealth. Use your block when under pressure and then counterattack something even if its air before the skill goes on CD since it's an evade. Pretty straight forward weapon, low skill floor and low skill ceiling. Good luck out there!
GS also has 0 chase potential, so really just try to swap to it under severe pressure or when you know they have no cds left.
