Why Is There No Special Forces Golem For WvW?


Gotejjeken.1267

Recommended Posts

I know that obviously raid rotations do not track exactly to WvW (as real people move most times), but why is there no DPS related golem in WvW somewhere? 

At the moment to be 'safe' I have to check my build on the Special Forces golem and then kinda guess if it's going to be as effective in WvW due to number changes and the like.  

Also don't really want to install something like Arc because even though it's 'gray accepted', I have this fear that my account will get flagged as soon as I use anything third party.  

So...can we get a DPS golem in WvW somewhere, even if paid access like Armistice Bastion?

There are a few training golems, champ and vets, in Armistice Bastion.  It's not in an exclusive instance and you can not setup those golems like in the raid special forces training area, but they are there. And, like in "real" WvW, there can be other players that do damage to the trainings NPC.  And there is an Arena where you can test your WvW-build and skill against other players.

Arc is accepted as long as the developer of Arc agrees to Anets terms, which he does. Anet has confirmed this a long time ago. Arc is a standard tool for a lot of raid and WvW players. You don't have to fear account suspension/flagging from using Arc.

If you aren't running arc you have no idea how effective your build is. 

The same applies to raids and the training golem too. Actual performance versus golem benchmarks can differ widely, and that is within a nearlly fully controlled environment. Tack on to that the far more unvontrolled WvW environment and your results on any golem would be near useless.

You can theorize on strips, boon uptime, damage, etc. but unless you actually care enough to track these things, it will remain just that: pure theory.

The AB golem is a terrible joke. The adds keep respawning which inflates your dps, you can't even tell how much dps you do without arcdps while the raid golem does and there is zero customization.

Oh, and there's only 1 so multiple people can't easily practice on it.

I do sorta want those training opponents that PvP has, but that's just not happening.

Come to think about it they haven't made any changes to the old lounges anyways. ;s Abandoned content as usual.
