Re: Official Guild Wars 2 Thread

I want to run more dungeons with the guild.

Sorry haven't been able to lately, usually playing on laptop in living room spending time with wife.

When on laptop I'm not good enough to do dungeons. Using touchpad instead of a mouse. Harder to control.

Worked out a build with my warrior, that "I think" is pretty beast.

running around with Swiftness up 75% of the time. and might with 20 to 26 stacks up most of the time. i think vitality tree is superior to toughness tree for warrior in every way possible

I thought that because warriors already have the highest life/vitality that toughness would be more useful.

Then again, recently it seems like it's all the #&*$&# Risen conditions that's wearing me down, which toughness is useless against...

Vitality tree gives:
1- help against normal damage and condition damage
2- more regen
3- free heals on shouts for you and your team (even more survivability)
4- Longer boon duration
5- Shorter shout CD

4+5 results in might stacking like crazy esp with GS, longer fury duration, longer switness duration

more damage, more crit, more speed, more heals, more help for teammates

but be prepared to use shouts over some of your signets... im running around with fury up 80% of time, swiftness up 75% of time, and might up 100% of time with 19+ stacks

Sounds really awesome. I'll have to try it out when/if my warrior gets to 80.

Fighting Risen is annoying... warrior is around 60ish now and actually I'm not even clearing maps anymore, seems like I'll hit 80 way before I run out of places/hearts to do.

This and their incredible speed have forced me to truly hate the Risen. The little SOBs caused me to leave a zone last night in search of easier foes. They are just no fun to party with. lol

I've had a tough time in the Straits of Devastation. The Risen are everywhere and they swarm you when you start a fight. Also, they respawn so quickly that by the time you clear a group of them the first one you killed is already back. There are three skill challenges there that I simply can't get to because there are so many mobs around.

Yeah dude the Straits are tough when you first get to 80. Try and pull one or two mobs at a time and work very deliberately. There is one skill point guarded by a ton of mobs I was having trouble with until I realized that is an end of an escort event and a champion spawns there.

I honestly found the Straits to be the most difficult of the Orr maps. I don't know if that's just because I was a new 80 and had crap gear or what. I was glad when I completed that bad boy.

If you try to run through ORR zones you will die. and end up having like 6 on you.

take your time, enjoy the zone, kill them as they come, explore, gather, goes much smoother than trying to blast through
