Grand Marshal.4098 Posted August 20, 2021 Share Posted August 20, 2021 (edited) I know it's too early, but I enjoy theorycrafting stuff. So I wanted to ask you what role and build do you think the especs could probably fill in WvW. For a zerg comp. So far my ideas (that I have yet to fully test) are a Boonshare Harbinger (obviously) aiming at replacing a Scourge (scepter, dagger and staff) at boon strip and possibly a Herald in boonsupport. I don't see harbinger being a solid enough option to replace Scourge's barrier tho so maybe 1 or 2 per squad would be ideal. For virtuoso, their AoE immob can be used strategically in spikes and with the added role of boonstrip coming from chrono, perhaps a more dps oriented mesmer can make it into the comps. Standard sword (maybe dagger) focus and GS setup to spike targets. Again I don't see any great potential here over a chrono support or even a Boonshare Mirage, but it's a spec maybe in the same boat as the latter. Maybe 1 per squad is pushing it xd As for Willbender, I actually had some fun ideas about a bursty interrupt WB with JI and Hammer GS, porting inside the enemy group with hammer 5 and unleashing their burst through virtue 1 and 3 until the ally zerg has pushed through. Akin to what many dps core guards did back in the day. I don't see dual sword being remotely viable in zerging. Again, I don't see more than 2 or max 3 of those making it into a squad. They are basically more melee focused Dragonhunters for zerging and instead leaving traps for the enemy to step on, they charge the enemy and kite away after creating some panic. Just some random fun ideas I had. Any suggestions on how these specs can make it into zergs? It's too early to say for sure ofc, but speculation is always fun!
