Willbender or Dragonhunter for pistol/pistol?


Recommended Posts

Intuitively, DH is probably better suited for ranged, but that might fall down if pistols turn out to be condi-based as some people are hoping for (DH isn't very good for conditions). Furthermore, the main thing that would push a WB into melee is Rushing Justice (the F1), and with a willbender you might be able to use Flash Combo or Roiling Light to use that into a "get in, deliver the flames, get out" combo. So I'd probably consider WB the safer bet overall, if you already have FB.

(Pistol Power vs Pistol Condi)
If mainhand Pistol has a shadowstep then it will either replace mainhand sword, or complement it as an excellent utility weaponset that's better than Scepter/X. Perhaps not better than Scepter#2 power damage and definitely not better than GS damage.

The most likely scenario though is Pistol/Pistol being a ranged condi version of Sword/Sword with a Power coefficient being 3/4 that of Sword/Sword, with condi making up a 1/4 of damage. Maybe a high condi coefficient (hopefully for them condi guards taking side-nodes).

[in Rank queue]
I'm not 100% convinced that Condi Guard will be a thing compared to power Pistol/Pistol but fingers crossed that we'll get a new side-node condi/power variant that can actually 1v1 things. Similar to side-node condi P/P Thief except not as efficient because DH no longer has stealth/superspeed lol.... There's so many reason why Condi Guard Pistol/Pistol can be Dead on Arrival in PvP.
