JReyno.3049 Posted February 22, 2022 Share Posted February 22, 2022 Hey all, hope you're having a good day. I'm a pretty new player that got into GW2 last year and so far I've been playing pretty casually going through open world/story content with a friend along with some casual PvP and WvW. I've played most of the professions/specs a little bit at this point but so far my favorite profession is definitely Warrior. Specifically, the Spellbreaker spec. Lately we have been talking about getting into group PvE content, because we really enjoy stuff like dungeons and raids in MMOs. And of course I REALLY wanna play Spellbreaker. I want to make sure I'm doing my part so I go looking for Spellbreaker guides in PvE group content and what do I find? Berserker builds everywhere. It looks like Berseker is the better warrior spec for group play because it does more damage? Which I don't really mind, I don't HAVE to play the absolute highest damage meta spec or whatever. But it does make me wish that Spellbreaker had something to offer in group play that isn't done better with Berserker. My friend really enjoys Mirage and plays a duel-oriented build in PvP, and he recently showed me this cool alacrity build for PvE. I'm thinking that's really cool, and I was able to make a build that can maintain max stacks of might for allies. But I go looking at other support/buff builds and see that many can maintain multiple valuable boons, including might, some doing that while having good damage and others while being able to heal. And I admittedly feel a little envious of that. It makes me wish that Spellbreaker could choose between removing boons or giving boons to allies via traits. Or... something, maybe some healing? Idk. I guess it's started to make me feel like the Spellbreaker traits are pretty one-note. Do people even want or need a boon removal spec in group play? All in all, right now with my admittedly limited knowledge it's feeling like Spellbreaker was not really designed with PvE group play in mind. And I'm kind of sad about that. Anyway, sorry for being longwinded. This has been on my mind for a little while and I've tried looking up some topics and discussions about it, but I wanted to actually get an opinion from current and more experienced warrior players here. Is Spellbreaker just not really particularly valuable for group PvE content? If I want to play group content as a Spellbreaker is my only option to just be a worse warrior damage/banner spec than Berserker? If I decide to play Spellbreaker anyway, will I at least be able to bring a decent contribution to the group? Thanks in advance for any answers or advice. 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
