Ranger and the new Unblockable - Possible Bug


Recommended Posts

Below are two interactions I have noticed with ranger and the new unblockable buff. Both of these cause the unblockable buff to last much shorter then what they feel like they should provide.

Lead the WindIf you are using the Lead the Wind trait and you shoot through 5 enemies with your long bow auto attack, it will remove 5 stacks of block. This causes two auto attacks to remove all stacks of unblockable from the signet. Feels a bit low.

One Wolf PackIf you have one wolf pack active and shoot a target. The damage from One Wolf Pack will consume an unblockable charge. This causes two stacks to get consumed per auto attack. Not super terrible but it feels like if you land the initial attack One Wolf Pack shouldn't have to worry about being blocked or consuming the charge.

This post is specifically in WvW as this is one of the main reasons Ranger is not a meta class. They have the damage capability and the buff capability but they are super reliant on projectile attacks. With all the projectile block and reflect abilities in WvW they can't get much damage in without unblockable. I think the current state on unblockable for PvP or PvE is fine but in WvW where you are expected to hit multiple targets per attack. Losing unblockable so quick is shutting down ranger potential in larger scale fights.

I'm unsure if these interactions are bugs or intended to work this way. Possibly adding more than 10 stacks with the same duration to just WvW would help a bit also.

Thanks for reading and thanks for more focus on the two competitive game modes.

This is indeed a bug. They even said that if one single skill hits multiple players, it will only cost 1stack of unblocks.

One Wolf pack is working as intended
