Fun Builds

So, fellas, I decided to take a buddy's advice and pick up FA Weaver again. I usually always dropped it because with marauder amulet I felt the damage is sorely lacking. However, with a rune adjustment and slapping on Zerk ammy I am getting much better results.

To be honest, this build is kind of addicting to play. It feels like I am playing what Ele was born to do. And even though I have hard counters (god, Condi thief), for some reason I see myself going into several more games back to back with excitement.

TDLR; Tell me what builds that you get you excited or have fun like this. It can be off-meta, meta, old, new. Anything. I'm just curious if people get just as hype as I do when they play their favorite class and build.

    Core D/P Thief with Portal focused on highest critic backstab using Hidden Killer in CS, has no dmg outside the one opportunity burst.

    Power renegade. It feels so kitten good when I kill meta builds or when I have most of the top stats.

    I like this one too. I used valk amulet. landing 20k mug+backstab is good fun.

    not quite as fun as old vault burst was though

    exhibit B

  • I also really like FA Weaver with zerk. It's countered by very tanky, high-health pool classes that do a lot of damage (core necro) as well as condi Thief and in many cases condi Mirage. But kitten is it fun. Slap on macros for maximum output since Anet doesn't seem to care about people using them.

    I sometimes play bunker herald. You can literally stand still on a point and 1v2 or even 1v3 vs some builds because you have so much damage reduction and passive healing/barrier. The downside is you have no mobility and cant kill anything.

    I am playing FA tempest from time to time now... with warhorn. Huge AoE damage, blinds and some CC, but as soon as a condi class is there, I am dead - not mirage though, because I cleave through illusions like butter. :lol:

    try d/p staff thief

  • Khalisto.5780Khalisto.5780 Member ✭✭✭

    FA is super fun

    I also like to play the perma reflect mesmer with scepter/sword when I see a combination of thieves and rangers

    I think boon beast is fun 2 when you kite 3 ppl the whole match

    From the 30 games I've played between yesterday and today, I've noticed that I can catch a core necro just before they go into shroud, but I would have to be incredibly fast when going through the rotation.

    I still enjoy playing Druid more than anything else.

    It's unfortunate that it was butchered, buried, and then defiled.

    As a runner up I'd say LB/GS Berserker Soulbeast, just raw maximum damage output. Always a fun time.

    Staff support ele is probably the most fun class I have tried this season. To soooo useless in so many areas but sooo fun and game with Rez and cc heal!! My sort of class as I only like the pealing role play. Here as video from other day. Lost game but it shows staff ele at its best and also at its most worst in impact! /w for build but I only recommend this for unranked chill with friends and not AT or ranked if u care about your rank!!
    No sound for first 6mins cus I new to computers and don’t know why.


    This only time I have recorded my ele as never play it but if u want a dps video let me know and can make one tonight. No montage :open_mouth:

  • gs sw/sh spirit weaps fb. you can stand still and watch people blow all their cd's while you spam aoe damage. its too funny.

    chrono secret build s2, yeah there still one very viable build left for chrono better than mirage just not sharing because anet will nerf it

    yeah but old druid was the worst thing in the game to play against
    I would even rather play against cancer condi mirage

    Interrupt Mirage is still pretty fun to play despite the lack of interrupt traits that really have a big impact since Chaotic Interruption was removed (and before that, Mistrust). Despite the large amount of stability present and how difficult it can be to see skill animations amongst the often mad AoE fests that make up most fights, it's still pretty satisfying to shut someone down during a team fight by landing consecutive interrupts.
