  1. I saw this and thought of you:


    1. Svarty


      I've sent this before, haven't I? Haha Still fun. fuck it.

  2. So long Piken o/

    Look after my friends on GH! THey aren't as trolly as... ,,, okay they are. SHhh I didn't say that.

    We need positive ideas and people actually working from information. The statements above are intended to aid in the process of generating a working solution. I don't know why I have to explain this, but some person wants to say, "I don't know why this is news", as if that helps anybody. It doesn't. If you can't contribute positively, it would be better to avoid posting altogether.

    As a casual observer, I noted that Vabbi seem to be running an absolute tonne of boons and condi removal. Their revs run Demon "stance"? Which means they're spamming out the Resistance boon. Their mesmers are Chronomancers, meaning they're probably boon sharing that resistance. I suppose it's hard to corrupt their entire zerg when they spam resistance in this way, so our condi builds are having limited effect. TL;DR We need epic levels of boon convert, and then some.
  5. Piken square forum

    I know some forum regulars are good mates with them, but I believe we should cut ties with the bandwagoners who went to Vabbi. Banning them from the forums would be a logical way to begin this process.
  6. Warhammer Return of Reconing

    Are the expacs part of the Return of Reckoning?
  7. Warhammer Return of Reconing

    Oh I thought slayer was one.
  8. Warhammer Return of Reconing

    But Dwarf can be... 3 classes, is that right?
  9. Warhammer Return of Reconing

    I can provide a few basics. All of these are as I recall and may have changed or I could simply remember them wrongly. Collision detection is ON. Meaning players can block doorways or hinder enemies trying to get to the squishies. Tanks put guard on someone like a switch. Then that person is always guarded when near the tank 50% of damage they take goes to the tank instead iirc - Cue tanks guarding tanks guarding tanks in a big circle-jerk as if to say, "if one dies, we all die". OR, in small-group PvP, Tank doing nothing more than following the Slayer around while he does all the damage - tank is great for players who are less skillful or button smashy - guild wars seems to forget we exist. That's how I remember it anyway. I also remember the classes being fun and visceral. Everything felt good when playing it. In GW2, the classes feel derpy and weird. I remember the classes I played in Warhammer felt good and solid. I also liked the bean planting/collecting system - DON'T LAUGH, BEANS ARE SERIOUS BUSINESS!
  10. Warhammer Return of Reconing

    I find private servers a bit fishy, but I loved Age of Reckoning. How does this play? As I understand private servers, someone had to approximate the server side code - is it noticeably bodged or does it all play like the original? Is Fannwong playing it?
  11. Desert Borderland Keeps overview

    Just a reminder about shrines redone: We now only need TWO shrines for the Falling Immunity (Hills) and Fire Immunity and Fire Portals (Bay). With two shrines at Garrison you get pulsing protection and [another boon]. Three shrines at any keep give you access to the quick-movement from one shrine to another at each keep: bird-form at hills, jump pads at garrison and fire tornadoes at bay.

    I propose renaming this thread from "non" to "new".

    Here are some tips: You can get Trailblazer stats from these exotic pieces of armour: Light Dragonscale Epaulets Light Dragonscale Headdress You just need to do the Ember Bay reward track twice. This means unlock the WvW reward track in Story mode THEN activate the track and play WvW until it's done. Bitterfrost Frontier Reward Track has gloves that let you pick Trailblazer stats, too. UPDATE: Apparently all Triumphant set let you pick any stats now, so you can do the WvW reward track over and over for trailblazer or celestial or whatever you want in exotic format.

    I have now looked over the official builds and found then inadequate in terms of survivability and playstyle. This is simply better for me, BUT do look into getting your boon strips into play when zerging - Greatsword#4, "Nothing Can Save You", Well of Corruption. FULL DIRE Armour, DIRE trinkets and weapons: This provides high Condition Damage with T & V RUNE: Undead = Toughness and 7% of Toughness as Condition Damage, synergises with itself. Curses: 322 SR: 321 (Some prefer 221, this is also fine, I use 3 because it means more and better Shroud-play) Reaper 222 (I change this to 322 when I'm struggling with enemy CC) For skills I mix it up a fair amount, but generally bear in mind that I want chills and blinds and usually a stun break. HEAL: Consume conditions, despite huge cast time Skills: Well of Corruption, You Are All Weaklings (stunbreak), Suffer. Mix this up if you like, but remember that with this build; anything that does blind also does chill and, anything that does fear also does chill and, anything that does chill also does bleed. Elite: Chilled to the Bone Food & Utility: Any condi food/Saffron Bread & a bog standard 6%,4% tuning crystal for over 150 more condition damage. TIP: Fire off Chilled to the Bone, then Suffer and pile up lots of Chill quickly and by extension Bleeds. TIP: I made this build with the avoidance of having to target enemies in mind. I get jumped by a lot of thieves, so I wanted to be able to use marks and shouts, which don't require target. TIP: Remember with this build that Fear, Chill and Blind all inflict Bleed. Zerg Playstyle: Use staff #2 to tickle enemies when sizing up a fight. On enemy push drop Well of Corruption on their tank train, dodge through them and do Chilled to the Bone and Suffer on the backline to reduce their damage output and mobility. Switch to reaper and do #4. Look for enemy tank train and avoid it's return, get back to tag. Consider dropping shroud at this point, depending how much life force you have left. #2. Remember that when 2 ends it does blind > chill > bleed on 5 targets. In addition, it converts 2 boons to conditions - Fury becomes blind, stab->fear, vigor->bleed, resistance->chilled, etc. #3 gives you stability and then hit it again to fear > chill > bleed another five nearby. The #5 is good but takes a long time to cast. At some point you might be out of shroud, pile up conditions on nearby enemies with chill shouts and get the heck out of there (save that stun break until you need it - it's not part of your chill > bleed routine anyway)! If you find you don't need so much stun breaking, drop Weaklings for Nothing Can Save You. When Jumped by a Thief: Drop Marks on yourself, when you know thief is near blow it up with shouts. This gets most thieves into a defensive situation, so either press them with Shroud attacks or run away. Sometimes it works. Good luck! All of this and nearly 30,000 HPs. What more can one ask?
