WS v MM — Guild Wars 2 Forums


on occasion I like to play sic-em SB to counter certain matchups.

Having tried both wilderness survival and the MM version (both with BM) I cant make up my mind which is best.

I personally find the WS version easier but I notice more higher lvl players seem to prefer Marksmanship instead

Which do you prefer and why?

    I prefer marksmanship but WS is better. Anyone who is running marksmanship probably shouldn't be.

    WS is better for survival. MM for one shots but you are very squishy.

    Here's the thing. WS gives you more protection and condition cleanse. MM gives you more lb dmg or gs 1shot capability. If you go skirmishing you have more quickness, vigor and overall fury/ crit chance/ferocity.

  • Go big or go home, marksmanship for me. I like the hit n run playstyle, you always need to seek for +1, almost like a thief..
