  • Wow! I'm sorry to hear about the layoffs. I had no idea that things were rocky with my favorite developer... Here's to a swift recovery. Cheers!
  • So, this is purely speculation. Based off of what someone else in the comments has already stated, I believe that Aurene's death was inevitable and actually necessary. During the trials, Glint splits the Commander and Aurene apart, saying this to…
  • Map Discovery Pack. Since we have the central tyria waypoint pack, why not have a similar pack but for zone discovery in central tyria? Since discovering a zone doesn't count for map completion, it'd be nice to have.
  • @KrHome.1920 When I say that I do 27.7k DPS, I mean I end the test with 27.7k DPS. I spike up to 32k DPS then settle down to 27.7K by the end of the test. Like I said to Sigmoid, I won't delude myself into thinking that I'm perfect, but something…
  • @Sigmoid.7082 So something doesn't add up is what you're saying, right? Seriously though. If I can replicate Subli's build, including their rotation, 100%, aside from the Power infusions, and do 3k DPS less than Subli…. something doesn't add …
  • @Sigmoid.7082 @Warscythes.9307 Aside from the stat infusions, I'm replicating Subli's build 100% and I'm only getting 27.7k DPS. So either I'm a lot worse at this game than I think or something doesn't add up.
  • @Warscythes.9307 So, first. The person in the video that you linked is using the wrong weapon set. They're using Warhorn instead of Focus. Focus does more damage than Warhorn and generates more Life Force. And second. I tested Power Reaper usi…
  • @Warscythes.9307 Where are you getting this new benchmark from? Snowcrows hasn't updated their site yet and I was able to reach just over 35k in training myself with Dread and perma Fear so...
  • @Warscythes.9307 No it wouldn't... You can make it so that the training golem has perma Fear on it. I was maintaining 30k to 35k dps with that so I think it's safe to say that dps numbers would remain the same if they implemented this change. …
  • So... First, I'd like to say, "thank you for listening to us Arena Net!". I was blown away when I tested my Reaper's damage on the training golem and saw his DPS reach 35k consistently on the meter, but then I realised why that was. With the chan…
  • @Virelion.4128 I refer to them as monsters from the Mists because that's literally where they come from; that's literally what they are... https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Nightmare I think that's what ANet was going for (dreams) but there's n…
  • @starlinvf.1358 I am not saying nor suggesting that Archfiend would be built around core Necromancer skills. At no point did I state this or imply it. My example was literally just that, giving an example. They could make whole new minions for al…
  • @Virelion.4128 said: Nightmares seems more like mesmer domain to me, but if it makes necro as elusive and evasive as mesmers are I am in ☺ May I ask how you got this conclusion? Necromancers literally summon Nightmares as their minions.
  • @Dadnir.5038 It was an example... And to rebuttal. Power Spellbreaker: Healing Signet, Kick, Bull's Charge, Signet of Might, Signet of Rage. Meta build; all core skills for an elite spec.
  • So I had another crazy thought. Say you're playing a minionmancer. You have a: Blood Fiend, Bone Fiend, Shadow Fiend, Flesh Wurm, and Flesh Golem on your bar and all are active. As an, "Archfiend", (Name of the elite spec) your life force fills u…
  • @derd.6413 said: could be an elite spec, maybe Exactly! I think it would be so awesome!
  • @ZDragon.3046 I can't remember the name of the dev that says it, but there's a dev that says something like, "here's a crazy idea...", then BAM! Our character dies (PoF story). I think it would be awesome to be transformed into a giant Nightmaris…
  • @misterman.1530 Nah. What I'm talking about is an entirely new elite spec devoted to Nightmares. The Necromancer's Life Force bar would fill up like normal but wouldn't be usable until completely full. Once full, it would light up signaling that …
  • @Yannir.4132 said: That sound more mesmer-ish than necromancer. A mesmer skill in GW1 was called Conjure Nightmare. It was a stronger and bulkier version of Conjure Phantasm. https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Nightmare Necromancers summ…
  • @Heimdallr.5421 So. The first thing I noticed is that you're using literally every single buff. In my test, I only used, "realistic", buffs and pulled off the same DPS as you. With full buffs, I pull ahead in DPS by about 2k. The second thing …
  • @Heimdallr.5421 I'm not trying to be rude when I say this, but did you even look at the build guide I posted earlier? I even linked a video of me performing the rotation. The problem, like @Dadnir.5038 stated, isn't that we can't do decent number…
  • @HardRider.2980 said: What IF you want to keep those materials though. Is there not something that does tropies etc and thats decent? or something that drops a lot of und kits? If you want to keep the materials you acquire from farming Is…
  • @""phs.6089" I don't even care, my 4 characters are geared full ascended with arsenal of weapons, I have 3 legendary weapons etc etc. I have 9 level 80s all fully geared in Ascended. My Firebrand is fully geared in legendary raid armor…
  • @Coyote.8391 No problem at all my friend!
  • @""Turkeyspit.3965" If you have a Power Reaper or Dragonhunter, those would be good. A lot of people also bring Scourge for the AoE damage. I've also heard that Thieves with Shortbow can be really effective. The main thing with tagging mobs is:…
  • @phs.6089 said: But being lazy i juts sell blues and greens on TP You're screwing yourself out of a lot of gold by selling them. I too once thought that selling them was the better way to go but then I started opening them all and realize…
  • @Coyote.8391 said: Thanks for the guide! Just one question though: Why do you open the unidentified gear? I open the UNIDs with as much magic find as possible because at worse you get a ton of blue and green armor/weapons which you can sa…
  • @Turkeyspit.3965 said: Is this an effective method for acquiring T6 trophies? Seems like every legendary requires a stack of 250 of each of them =/ Most definitely! The trophy shipments give you a boat-load of both T5 and T6 materials. I…
  • DISCLAIMER: This isn't a suggestion by any means for a fix, I figured I should upload my take on the build/rotation so that possible errors could be identified and to point out obvious issues with Reaper in general. * Build/Rotation Video: …
  • @Methuselah.4376 I like this idea. It could be that, in addition to getting 50% Critical Chance from 25 stacks of Vulnerability, we get a stacking +2% Damage Increase from each stack of Vulnerability instead of the normal +1% for a total of +50% Dam…
  • I think I may have a simple fix for the damage of Power Reaper. Either: * Dread: Inflicting Chill on a foe applies vulnerability. Deal increased damage to foes inflicted with Chill. (Damage Increase: 20%) * The above trait is in Spite so it…
  • @Chaba.5410 So you actually think that the current system is fair to veteran WvW players? What does it matter if I play WvW as intended or not? Even an outsider like me can look at the current system and see that it's bad. I'm sure there are l…
  • @Chaba.5410 I was merely using ruin farming as an example as I finished a GoB earlier today by using that exact method and while I was doing so, I got ganked several times by multiple people. I still don't understand why you continue to defend…
  • @juno.1840 said: I sympathize with the OP because I have to do PvE for my Gift of Exploration. That's far more than 8 hours and takes me away from my favorite game mode. The answer to both our plights is: Legendary gear is optional and n…
  • @Onlysaneman.9612 The first thing I'd like to say to this is... dang dude... Space out your sentences a little bit better next time haha. But in all seriousness thank you for the comment. All I was attempting to do with this post was incur discus…
  • @Chaba.5410 * If you're someone who doesn't enjoy fighting other players, what are you doing in WvW or even sPvP for that matter? * While you're right about the loot bags, that's not the reward players like me are after * You might want to wa…
  • @Chaba.5410 My original post was my attempt at presenting a solution for the problem that I have with WvW. It didn't even occur to me just to farm a single ruin event to get my GoB because I actually want to play WvW. I don't hate WvW for what it…
  • @Car.3805 said: Hello, for PvE exploration, may I have the option of killing players to count as a quest heart/POI/vista/waypoint completion? It'll be the fastest Gift of Exploration reward ever! I can't imagine anyone actually likes doing ques…
  • @Chaba.5410 said: Off-topic? Seems like you're trying to discuss something new. I'm not trying to discuss something new at all. Deroir's video and my OP are literally discussing the same thing just in different ways. While he focused on t…

  • @Voltekka.2375 said: Funny, how pvers have no issue doing 303 renowned hearts (i bet THAT is interesting, eh), or 600+ POI, or 188+ hero points or HoT maps that require absurdly boring metas (DS, for example) but the gift of battle is a hindrance…
