I need a challenge, please post terrible builds that I can use with a very small description on what the build focuses on.
Eg: [build] Ranger Spirits - [purpose] To support. (Which was the last challenge, 9 rezzes in one match)

Not to brag, but I put together a puzzle in 4 days and the box said 2-4 years.
Please allow team queue with rewards again at our own discretion.

    fb marauder spirit weapons (damaging ones) - aoe cleave and node 1v1 duelist
    tempest zerk staff - live long enough to cast meteor shower on a team fight
    scrapper all launch skills - cuz you can, extra points if you make ppl rage quit

    that should get you started lol

    This is about the worst build I can come up with without resorting to completely 100% useless picks (like a confusion duration sigil on an elementalist):

    Everything is technically beneficial, just horribly minimally beneficial ;D

    dagger/focus core ele, marshal amulet - feed the enemy 5 points

  • otto.5684otto.5684 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Zerker DH, GS, sword and focus, full raid build, DH/radiance/zeal and scholar runes. Thinking about, that can probably drop 20k in like 2 secs, but good luck surviving anything looking in your direction.

  • Undertow.2389Undertow.2389 Member ✭✭✭

    Actually, I think this one is even worse than the d/f ele:

    Defense: 1 - 1 - (Situational Depending On Match)
    Discipline: 2 - 3 - 3

    Any combo of Mace Dagger/Shield and Mace Dagger/Mace: Energy & Annulment

    If you have a solid FB/Scourge with you, nothing in the team fight against you will be allowed to have boons if you bring this fine meme build.

    Condi short bow renegade. Its really bad, but I managed to get to plat with it two seasons in a row.

  • Bazsi.2734Bazsi.2734 Member ✭✭✭

    Well someone is bored... play stealthless deadeye. Like... s+p/shortbow or something with mercy, and have improvisation traited. The combo is: spam pistolwhip on the enemy to get 5 malice, recharge mark with mercy for initiative(so you can spam more), get a chance to recharge mercy when remarking with improvistaion(so you can spam more).

    It can be disturbingly effective, but generally you're just a free kill.

    You can obviously always just pick mismatching Amulets/traits (like Condi Engi with Zerk Amulet or smth) to make it deliberately bad. Out of the builds that are at least supposed to make some kind of sense, Core Zerk Staff Ele is probably one of the hottest contenders. Banner warrior is probably a close match.

    Started with Berserker Tempest because Tempest D/D is my main.

    Then tried a bunker Launch build.

    If you're interested in trying any on guard, I would recommend:

    • Literally any guard build with minimum health (just try and make any build with Berserker or Destroyer amulet in particular work...) - can be any role you like
    • A FB build that doesn't have any investment in healing power - for the purpose of being a roamer/1v1 side noder

    Those thing were designed to not work or be complete useless, now that they are super mega predictable due delay on activation plus cast time.

    As for Engie, I dont know engie since prehot lol so just made it up as I went..

    I shall try more of these builds this weekend after im done experimenting with Celestial DD Reaper lmao☺ (which is suprisingly strong)

    Those are my traits... Used Wurm runes for extra health and ferocity.

    Arcane skill slotted can hit for 5k and you get 2 uses.
    Also when traited you can Meteor Shower to Earth and Arcane blast some immobilization onto people caught in MS.

    Ran Lightning Rod for the extra procs, felt like I needed more damage on my rotations because without it earth and air were seriously lacking damage.
    it was also handy to deal with clones this way.

    Power Chrono. Totally useless in PvP now. No buildable stability and hard to work any decent condi cleanse into your build without severely nerfing your damage. Even when you build for damage it isn't competitive. Try it and you'll see what I mean. It got repeatedly hit with the nerf bat one too many times and is now comparable to some classes' core specs.

    Stun lock build - Can nuke team fights with double grav well combined with tides of time once they have been bunched up, should proc heavy numbers from Power Block and Lost time and has decent sustain for team fights.

    Trust me. I've tried almost every permeation of builds for power chron and they are all useless. I pretty sure all serious mes on the forums would agree.

    Your first build has absolutely no condi cleanse or stability at all with a zerker amulet no less. That build will last approx. 5secs against any semi decent condi spec player/team with Scourge, Gravedigger, Mirage etc., and any spec/team that has copious amounts of CC (engis, fear necros etc.) you will be chain bounced around like a ping pong ball before you get a shot off. This used to be my favourite build a long time ago where you could get away with no condi cleanse or stab as a power chron, but those days are gone with the current crop of Elites and even the last gen elites. I'm sure it still has great use in a good team, but lets face it, you can get away with most builds in a good team. Most pugs aren't great teams, and almost all teams are not pre-mades. Overall very little sustain build.

    The second build has pretty good sustainability and probaly the best condi cleanse you'll get on mes (which is pretty poor in the current meta), but is no bunker by an stretch of the imagination. But the most important thing is the damage output is just way too weak. Very unlikely to take down other classes specs including their core specs outside of a team fight, or you'll be fighting any good sustain spec for days hoping that the first person to arrive to break the deadlock is on your team. As soon as you take the inspiration line you lose a significant amount dps on any mes power build. On top of that mixing power weapons with staff (condi) means you are splitting the weak dps even further since you've most chosen a power amulet. Tried signet builds, and the cds are just too long for good use these days. Don't get me wrong, I've had great fun using GS and Staff together if you trait it right, but you are not going to turn a fight outside of a good team (i.e. good support).

    Well double grav well is going to be good no matter what your build is :) But when you are building around your Elite skill, you know your spec is in trouble. basically the history of chrono has been buff to be strong and then nerf it to uselessness, and with the recent changes to core traits it has hit chrono even harder. I still play power chrono because I still enjoy he playstyle, but it still sucks and really isn't competitive. Chrono is actually just below perfect balance, the problem is other classes' specs are very overtuned in comparison, so it makes it not overall competitive. As soon as they started nerfing core traits to try and balance Mirage, they made power builds even weaker than before. Note stability and condi cleanse has been nerfed previously despite it not being good in the first place due to trait line placement.

    You can obviously always just pick mismatching Amulets/traits (like Condi Engi with Zerk Amulet or smth) to make it deliberately bad. Out of the builds that are at least supposed to make some kind of sense, Core Zerk Staff Ele is probably one of the hottest contenders. Banner warrior is probably a close match.

    I made it to plat 2 a few seasons ago with core zerk Ele. Some games with ice bow, some with flame axe. Good fun

    Flame Axe kitten. Honestly, I don't even know what that does. I still know Icebow fairly fell from when it was "meta", but Flame Axe...

    Guess TE will have to go for banner war then.
