  1. "Preparation" as the name of a skill category just makes me think of Preparation H.
  2. Quote? As far as memory recalls, Anet stated they wanted tradeoff for elite specs, no for "Hot elite specs". It's the way the April 23rd release notes phrased it. In reference to the elite specs, HoT is mentioned and PoF isn't. And then when they go on to list elite specs that don't have trade-offs, only HoT specs are listed (in a list of five specs, not one PoF spec appears). I could be reading into it, but Anet does have a history of nerfing older specs to make the newer content look more desirable. Ah, I see why you read it that way. The update reads: The way I read it is that they ment
  3. This used to be the case. They nerfed the skills by making them not throwable anymore at some point around the release of HOT I recall. I think they did it to balance them for pvp. They should’ve only made the change for pvp. Probably easier to do that than spit that sort of thing between game modes though. It killed a whole line of viable ranger builds for wvw and pve just so they can balance pvp. Not saying that wasn't the case, just point out that code change might not have been possible though. They are infamous for spaghetti code. Unless they got monkeys doing coding I’m pretty sure i

  5. Soulbeast can use its core mechanic while not Merged. Berserker cant use normal burst at all. Berserker has a duration.Soulbeast can be used permanent. Berserker needs a resource.Soulbeast doesnt. Berserker Form can be interupted. Can Merging be interupted? Oh you were serious. I really thought the post was badly written sarcasm, but you're serious. In all seriousness, at least a few of those 'Updates' to Berserk Mode are heading for Beast Mode. A duration and cast time may be imminent. I doubt it. At a design level, berserk mode and beastmode have never had much in common. Berserk has alway

  7. I might have prior to it's arc divider nerf but it certainly cannot. I've seen 30k arc dividers in WvW after the 25% nerf. And then there's gunflame. My own berserker for WvW (admittedly a gimmick Arms build) does 20k+ gunflames back to back with a 29k health pool.
  8. @Atticus.7194Berserker can do just as much damage just as quickly. Let's not pretend burst builds are unique to any one profession.
  9. If that would be so, then answer me why there was so much hate towards rangers (SB) even before mount release? Thank you, nice discuss, we should have another one in the future.Have a good day. And there is no hate at all for double pistol Thieves. I dismount people all the time with Unload. The difference is the range, I only have 900...P/P doesn't regularly get hate because it's a meme build for competitive modes that stops being effective the second your enemy knows the #3 spam is incoming.
  10. @Dadnir.5038My post said nothing of the right or wrong of changing PBS; it merely informed that such a change would affect all modes. I find the premise of the OP's point rather silly (bad players don't pay attention to a skill so let's change the skill they're already not paying attention to). As to changing PBS in sPvP and WvW, knockdown instead of knockback would be far less value. Knockback has the potential to knock enemies out of capture circles, off cliffs, away from downed allies, etc. I don't see fear and taunt as relevant here. The meta sPvP/WvW builds don't use wolf, Beastly Warden,
  11. I doubt Anet will implement one pet only for soulbeast simply because it'd be challenging to code (and likely a buggy mess if they did try). Anyhow. Only HoT professions got "trade-offs." PoF sales must have lagged.
  12. The game is already 7 years and the issue with point blank shot exist since release. If you really don't want people to use it abusively in PvE, you have to really make it "point blank" which mean melee range (just like updraft or illusionary wave). If you want to just make PvE a less frustrating place to play, the knockdown effect is a simple fix. Anet has stated before that skill functionality cannot be split between the modes. Only number splits are possible (base damage, power coefficient, cooldown, etc).
  13. MM/BM soulbeasts can do 15k longbow AAs. A shave to Sic 'Em (one damage modifier among several) isn't the answer; a rework of MM is. The minors are trash and longbow cheese won't stop until the damage modifiers in MM majors are addressed.
  14. This does not belong on the list. WvW is a server vs server gamemode. If I see someone from an enemy server and want to attack them then that is just part of the gamemode. If the duel takes place in "duel specific areas" like obsidian sanctum and the arena in EoTM then sure but not in arbitary dueling spots made up by players. What's next? Telling roleplayers to stop their fantasy acts in PvE? Who are you to dictate how people should play? If crashing into a dueling spot and sucking the fun out of everyone isn't a toxic behavior, I don't what it is.If it's red, it's dead.
  15. Triumphant was affected by the reset, but it seems to be random. One of my Triumphant sets reset completely whereas only the head piece reset in another Triumphant set.
