TheOneArmedKnight.6217 Posted March 17 Share Posted March 17 (edited) Good morning GW2 community, hope you're all doing well! As the says, I am an experienced MMORPG/RPG enthusiast who just so happens to have use of only 1 arm due to a physical disability. Without getting into too much detail on the latter but enough to give you a background of understanding, my condition essentially means that games like Elder Scrolls Online, Runes of Magic (in combination with adaptive equipment) were my gaming bread and butter due to their high level of class customization options (to create easily accessible classes) - something that GW2 offers and that has always appealed to me. That said, I've tried again and again over the years to find a nice combination in the game to help me feel a solid flow of game-play, but I've always come up short - even after testing out many professions and looking up guides and videos. I WANT to play this game - especially since RPGs with high levels of skill customization are far and few between; I think I just need some help/direction in what class/skills to pick so that I can have any easier time with movement/combat and overworld content. I am aware of the talent calculator and using the PVP lobby to test out higher level skills. The struggle resides in having a comfortable time from the start and mid game. So I humbly come to you, the community in hopes of perhaps collectively coming up with a solid goal and game-plan for my level 1 - 80 experience. Just please respect, as a final note, that I value the ROAD to max level in MMOs, and do not need or want the solution to be "Just boost to 80". I want to experience and grow with the game as I have with all the others I've played. With that out of the way, below are some basic things I try to look for in general MMORPG class builds to help with certain aspects of my condition:1. MOVEMENT FLEXIBILITY VIA SKILLS - Skills like Charge, Leap, or Teleport skills I look for these kind of skills to help increase combat flow and movement across the battlefield. By having one or two of these types of skills in a build, it allows me to not have to pause as often between stopping my movement and engaging an enemy. These types of skills in the past, have also helped me cancel out disabling effects on my character, which can be a bonus.2. STATIONARY BUILDS - Aggressive Warriors or Ranged Attacker ArchtypesIf I can't opt for #1, this is my second go-to when looking for accessibility in class builds. Classes that DON'T need to travel up close to hit anything, but can stay still and dish out damage from either far away or use taunts to get enemies to come to my location. This strategy takes a bit longer then #1, but can still be fun if the skills are fun to use when the enemy gets in my location.3. HEAVY/MEDIUM ARMORED CHARACTERS - Warrior, Guardian, Vindicator, Ranger, Engineer, Thief (in GW2 terms)This goes hand in hand usually with #2. I only have limited space on my adaptive equipment for skill commands and movement options, so when possible, I opt to find classes that can soak up damage, so I can free up keys on my equipment for more skills in lieu of more movement and dodging - as I can't move and attack at the same time with 1 hand. This if possible is something I look for regardless of my weapon choice (such as great weapons vs, shields, vs bows) just to ensure survivability.THOUGHTS: With all that in mind, what sort of profession and weapon combination do you think would embody the above the most? Feel free to think outside the box, even if it doesn't tick every one of the above categories. I'm really curious to hear and see what others might think. While your suggestions need not be super detail-oriented, I would very much appreciate a basic breakdown of class and weapon choice for your ideas so I know what to look for as I level. And feel free to name your suggested build/idea for better organization. I'm happy to try out more than one and maybe even collab/play with some of you if that's of interest to anyone. Journey on my friends, and thank you in advance for your time and ears o7 -The1ArmedKnight Edited March 17 by TheOneArmedKnight.6217 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
