  1. Killing babies

    I might be the worst... I simply do not murder them, I drop a refcircle.
  2. We already have that.... been around since December 7, 2017 Edit: but it can be promoted a bit more
  3. 11/12 patch theorycraft

    My few and fast inputs: All about range from Firebrands + position to each other. (Does not help how high stats you have or allies you hit when you are the only FB besides com, on a "we are 25-30" vs mapblob push, ending up with you, commander and 3 others outside of gate - rest are dead due to not moved/reacted) From what I can see quickly from system-picture Ditch 4 weawers for 2 optionals (that are, from what I can see support, support, hybrid or damage and damage), 1 Herald, 1 support. Evaluation: As alot do not know how hybrid works or what it even is, we get more FBs, then we complain we have to many of those. We then get scourges/weavers. We has BIG damage. Sorry commander, you did not call exactly where and when to put bomb, and if you did it, you did it at pace as leading a GvG. I get the idea, but from my perspective - IF change those 4 weavers, change to 1 weaver, 1 chrono, 1 scrapper, 1 herald. Why? On the spot/fly, you need more damage, scrapper (that is the hybrid) makes a few changes. Notice more sustain is needed? Oh, look, a weaver spun itself to a Tempest. I can say, that from the 10-player party setup, from what I have seen/experienced, it is fun. We farmed on entire EB at and especially IN SFR keep (without the help of addons), we faced problems outside pRoS Second EB-keep vs Kod when Kintosz overextended and got focused by at least one thief. we had sustain, a bit of damage, more sustain, even more sustain, a bit more of damage with a few kills + more downeds and then a heck alot more sustain, then we ran into cooldowns. I blame Kintosz for that wipe. And me. And enemy for doing more damage then we did. I also blame the Q so none of us could change class. We sadly had to much sustain, a looong Q and not enough Kintosz´s, I mean damage. (Now please re-read evaluation of system) I think 5 and 10-parties work, but if only have so called "half amount of wanted FB´s you trust" - put them in different parties, with people that can withstand/know how to play without a guardian give them stab. Even out the field sort of, instead of "pro-spec 2-3 parties". Worked during guardian/DH-time when used 2 guardians each party. Stab 1, the reliable one (ofc not me, as I go smoke/scout on coms orders, gets called out for not giving stab while scouting on coms order and such) Stab 2, the ones that are not seen as reliable/new/rest. When it comes to FB ranged/flank support, been around for... well, since long before DH came, so clearly nothing new there, besides the 10 targets on SyG.
  4. 13.11 patch builds theorycrafting

    abt SB: Bubble is, imo (and other players from fightguilds) used after boonstrip, so new boons can't be added. FB: Mantra heal as support. Shelter as ego and predated HoT as meta-heal. Breeze is from really, really old meta. Those players have not changed builds (these are the reasons I have heared/noticed) Mi: After a chat with me, Regi did some calculations/ran tests after what I had stated, and then started to promote my build (MI as default due to rubbing was FAST with dura runes + Life + bulwark) - I am still stuck on that. As DEFAULT skill. And can ofc change situational. Note: dura gave +1.25% flat on outgoing heal Stab - No brainer Cleanse Mantra - No brainer Mini Stab Mantra - No brainer Defender rune is, as far as i understand/know, tankier ego with less boonduration. Shield 5 note: The dome actually destroys projectiles; it does not reflect, nor does it block. FB have 6 own sources of aegis. This versus Monk, that easily gets 10 stacks, makes that healskills will get 20% benefit (besides having 75 more healing power, 1352 vs 1427) No snacks used (otherwise it is +0.05% for Monk - 0.81 vs 0.86, Healing is flatbased, not like damage +%), no sigils. Aegis healblock: 1321 vs 1560 == Monk + 239 Staff 2: 559 vs 693 (4 times). == Monk + 536 Staff 4: 726 * 2 + 2852 (4304) vs 886 * 2 + 3500 (5227) == Monk + 923 f2 4: 639 * 5 vs 790 * 5 == Monk + 755 f2 2 (if lucky): 1064 (up to 3 times) vs 1320 (up to 3 times) == Monk + 256 (for each condi) f2 1: 1548 vs 1925 == Monk + 377 Dodge: 1481 vs 1867 == Monk + 386 Mace 1 3: 1081 vs 1341 == Monk + 260 Shield 5 1573 vs 1905 == Monk + 332 Monk a clear winner for Support FB. I would go for Life on mace or shield, Transference on Staff. Why?! A player keeps the stacks if it need to change to GS (for movement) /Focus (blastfinisher) / Hammer (blast finisher) Renewal heal: 886 vs 1100
  5. Power scourge

    Barrier: 4,208 (1.5125 * Healing Power) according to wiki. What I checked as traits/sustain/damage was Convert QTFY Power Reaper to WvW Scourge (current ez meta we had linked to). As Dogg pointed out, all about strip/convert and the bubble make it so they dont get new boons - then damage happens. Disclaimer: Wiki and internet can state one thing, game another. I am not to be held responsible for what people do with information provided (I have had recent occasions leading to ingame blocks, to be able to enjoy game)
  6. Power scourge

    Barrier differences (0 healing vs cele on gear + trinkets) f3 2883 vs 2428 Cele: +455 f5 5342 vs 5016 Cele: +326 heal 4996 vs 4208 Cele: +788 Selfheal: 3803 vs 3230 Cele: +573 Regen (from Well of Power if affected player is Poisoned) 195 vs 130
  7. Meta shifts

    I was bored, so I converted a great pve build to wvw. 'Brio´s Conclusion of Converting QTFY Reaper to WvW Scourge by changing traits/trinkets 1k less health, 825 lower life force, highly depending on health to be above 90% for dmg, a bit lower barriers/regen then current meta-scourge'
  8. Meta shifts

    Damage from our builds come from boonstrip/corrupt, direct damage. Those that provide this most in melee are scourges and spellbreakers, Revs, eles are sideliners/ranged. We still do not have a backline, we have melee and ranged/casters. Getting a bit tiredsome repeating that scourge are melee, and have been for years.
  9. Meta shifts

    As I could read it laid out: heal tempest OR support scrapper, where it is best situated in a squad (when have lack of FB). Not both in combo with healbot FB and Shoutbreaker/warrior (cele best for overall sustain/dmg). L2R (Learn to read). I do however agree with 'play more aggressive', we saw that 2 days ago when Vyne commanded home, then EB and I, as LT, took the unassigned role as 'ranged commander' and people became more aggressive, leading to almost same group (enemy, just to make sure for those that read) got wiped several times, by same group of Pikeneers/+link. Earlier we struggled and it was not Vyne's fault.
  10. Lag issues & Solutions Part 2

    Backup. Mentioned 2 times. Now bolded and a bit bigger fontsize. Thanks for input
  11. Lag issues & Solutions Part 2

    New stuff with Windows 10 version 1809 as far as I have noticed Focus assist Focus assist will now enable automatically when you’re playing any full screen game. This behavior should be enabled automatically, but you can always check on Settings > System > Focus assist and ensuring the “When I’m playing a game” option automatic rule is turned on Clipboard In the “System” section, you’ll notice a new Clipboard page that houses all the settings to customize the new clipboard experience. Using this page, you can enable or disable the cloud-powered clipboard (Windows key + V), but you’ll continue to have a clipboard functionality just like before. Also, in this page, you can enable or disable the ability to sync your clipboard content to the cloud to be available across devices. This I will ofc turn off Typing - I will set this to Off, Captures In the “Gaming” section, you won’t find a lot of visual changes, but the Game DVR now has been renamed to Captures. I will check out what it will have for impact on the other tweaks, if they are obsolete and/or if I have to add more Talk to Cortana In the Talk to Cortana page, you can now change the name that Cortana uses to call you. (This option was previously available in the Cortana experience settings.) Speech While in the Speech page, you won’t find new features, but now, this is the place to turn Online speech recognition on or off. Edit: I noticed OneSyncSrv is back due to the version-change

After you complete a Windows 10 upgrade, the first thing you should do is go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and click Check for updates. Install any available updates, including updated drivers. Next, on the Windows Update page in Settings, click Change active hours to specify your normal work hours (a window of up to 18 hours), when you don't want to be interrupted by updates. Restart your computer. All above can be subject to change after an update of your Windows (you have to redo it). Most likely something will be added after the big update of Windows soon to come. I will get to Focus Assistant later on and a few other tweaks I have made. Edit 1 (quick): Win update - Advanced options - All off Delivery Optimization (not sure it is named that) - OFF Privacy - All off Focus: Off Storage Sense: Off Edit2: Testing to disable OneSyncSvc I forgot 1 service of XBox (and faster way to do it, I update later on to give you less writing to do) Start cmd as admin, paste below code, press enter reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\xbgm" /v "Start" /t REG_DWORD /d "4" /f sc config XblAuthManager start= disabled sc config XblGameSave start= disabled sc config XboxGipSvc start= disabled sc config XboxNetApiSvc start= disabled Edit 2018 3 October, 16:55 Bolded a few things so people perhaps read them
  13. Starter Builds

    @Etheri I do not have a single pm from you regarding the build. You whispered me ingame, when I had small pneumathorax on left side (that is selfhealing broken/busted lung). I whisped you that I had problems breathing and was in pain, you still thought we should talk builds and I should do this, do that - when most I could focus on was breathing to stay alive. I asked if you could PM the talk on forum and yes, that you could. You made a post. You did not even read entire thread before post. And you still have not pm-ed me regarding the build. ............... I have not checked cost for gear, but posting the builds one last time, then I will check them closely, each and every one of them. In my time. Have opinion about a specific build? Use SEND MESSAGE option or write in own thread about "build x"
  14. Starter Builds

    I linked , as mentioned, to official piken builds. If you feel there is lack of proper ele-builds there, turn to community and bring it up during a meeting/pm Freakshow/post in his thread. In this thread there was earlier glasscannon, that was not all happy about, so build changed. There have been several changes during how all classes was supposed to be played overall (we all go snowball, pirateship, balanced, frontline/backline). And today we have melee + range squads. 2 different tags, 2 different playstyles - but the new player should be knowledgable enough, as game is soon 5 years, to be able to play/sustain all versions, otherwise go some tanky class, edge or back to pve. When I ask for input in pm, then people post in thread. Stone Heart was added, removed, re-added and removed. It was still not only me involved in making the builds, I made the post. Blame me for how bad every other players have played and still stays 1500 range behind tag. It is also my fault Piken open raid tails 6k - 10k. Everything is my fault, because my post did not provide a build that YOU alone approved. Some peoples understanding of others are really embarrassing. And you have reached my limit on how much I take.
