An Extremely easy, low mechanic but still relevant (Not trying to be the top in anything) class.


Recommended Posts

As the title says. i enjoy mmo but I'm not a fan of the complex weapon swap fixed rotation kind of gameplay of GW2. The game is good and for good players, its awesome but I'm not too good with my actions per minute. As such i'm looking for recommendations of classes that have simple rotations, hopefully with a single weapon, and can still do decent job of the role. My priorities are Raids and Fractals. I also do a little WvW zerging.
As an example of how bad I am, I play DH and CFB with exotic armors, Ascended trinkets and full recommended Sigils an runes and is usually the lowest or second lowest dps (excluding supports). So yes, I am that bad. The weapon swap system is something I legit breakdown at. Please help a noob who just wants to enjoy the content without being kicked for not being meta.

Not alot of classes that are viable in raids and fractals that don't really swap (atleast in some instances)

Warrior (banners) only really swaps for CC, mostly dps rotation is around using a skill or two and then pressing F1, repeat. Though its kind of high on actions per minute.

 

Reaper is pretty simple and low action per minute and you can maintain ~20k dps in raids with low effort. It doesn't really bring anything to the group so its not always wanted though. 

 

If your looking to chill and not care about dps go alacrenade. Most groups aren't going to care if you are hitting dps benchmarks as long as you are pressing F4 off cooldown. The issue here is in fractals your often required to do specific mechanics.

 

Dragon Hunter is on the lower end of rotation needed to be effective, maybe its just CFB over whelming with tome switching?

The weapon rotation always throws me off. Its so hard to memorise skill cds and stuff. Thats y I prefer a single wep wer I can watch the cd. If that makes sense.

Then I'd say either Power Daredevil or Condition Scourge. Both have no weapon Swap and Scourge doesn't even have a real rotation (only priorities).

Thank you. I've levelled up a scourge and was planning on learning her. I wanted opinions since people told me its hard.

In my opinion, after the last Update Condi Scourge is probably one of the best DPS builds in a non-speedrun setting because it's easy to play (no rotation), does good DPS, is inherently tanky (highest hp pool) and can spam defensiv support for the group (barrier and condition cleanse).

Also, its fun to see the barriers on the whole group when you stack Scourges.

Edit: my phone grabbed the wrong quote, so I fixed it.

 

The dps rotation on banner Berserker is use two skills that hit three times then F1.

 

It's headbutt-F1-F1-6-F1 then 5-F1-4-3-F1-2-3-F1-aa chain 1 and 2 then F1 again.

 

You essentially pair axe 2 and axe 3 or axe 4 and axe 3 in between bursts with axe 5 on CD or blood reckoning on CD. It's a really easy rotation to learn, you just hit it all pretty fast.

Power Scrapper is kinda such build. Best survivability, insane utility and "Spam 2-5 Toolbelts Gyros off-CD" essentially. Though it does do somewhat lower damage than holo but the utility+massive cleave+ridiculous tankiness (in totally another world than almost every other build in game) more than makes up for it. Though lots of people still have that "all dps, no utility"-mindset that causes so many unnecessary wipes. It can also swap to kitless sword+shield holo for more dps if needed, that is also pretty simple.

Thank you for all your help. I have improved considerably on my cfb and plan to stick to it an improve by practice. I also figured out that a major factor in my lower dps than benchmark is my ping (190+) and skills being cancelled. Thank you for your help. Keeping that in my mind and making certain rotation changes have helped me improve.
