[Sorc] AoE Builds Discussion

Hey everyone, The sorceress as a class seems very straightforward. A group-oriented damage dealer with good options for both single-target and AoE damage. However, having played my sorceress a fair deal, primarily in RvR (rr62, so nothing special), I have realized that the Path of Destruction and th...

Re: [SW] Glass Arrow

snip A BW needs to build combustion. An engineer needs to build turret stacks. Both are significantly less mobile than SW. BW damages themselves in order to do damage. An engineer needs to sacrifice damage, range and mobility if they want maximum AoE potential, etc. Does it equal out in the end? Ma...

Re: [SW] Glass Arrow

I'm gonna have to disagree. Before the patch SW could still do things, just that dmg you are talking about was better with literally any other dps class but WH. You could get the same effect as "Focused Mind + VoN + Lileath's Arrow" with an engineer doing aoe dmg from 100ft+ away, or even...

Re: [SW] Glass Arrow

This is just straight up wrong, we are talking about viability in oRVR and City environments. SW before the patch wasn't anything special. Literally any other DPS class was better than them save for WH. Fully agree that SW was not viable in city (I don't see how anyone could argue differently), how...

Re: [SW] Glass Arrow

You might not be aware but SW is actually a DPS class and is being far outperformed by Dps AM. So obviously R-SW is not in a good position in small scale and according to your perspective the given role to SW in large scale must be limited to a buff of %8 crit chance incrase like a trinket. In that...

Re: [SW] Glass Arrow

I'm noticing people are saying the recent changes to SW are a nerf. That is complete and utter nonsense . I play ranged SW at rr70-something and put a fair bit of effort in learning to play the class while it was unbuffed. The only change that I liked was the change to Guerilla Warfare. The rest of ...

Re: ASW - Improvements to ability to maintain melee range

See previous posts re: stance switching and why it does not qualify as a reliable range maintainer. While yes basic ranged attacks are there, the requirement of 15 hard points in Assault leaves the base damage of other ranged abilities so low that melee skills are the only ones with any potential t...

Re: Stealth, Stealth Detection and Initiative; how do they work?

That's very useful information. So, if I understand it correctly, initiative gives a chance to detect enemies at 40ft. This distance becomes smaller if the stealth class has an advantageous position over you. Initiative increases the chance that this detection takes places, so it's percentage-based....

Stealth, Stealth Detection and Initiative; how do they work?

Hey all, Information on the topic of stealth detection seems scarce. I have tried consulting people in-game, but none seem certain about the workings of this mechanic. Even experienced WHs/WEs could not tell me with certainty. One helpful chap told me he thought it works as follows: - Detection is b...

Re: ASW - Improvements to ability to maintain melee range

Stance-switching is a fundamental part of playing SW well. It seems to me the problem here is that some are locked into a mindset that because one plays an 'Assault' SW, one should never have to leave Assault Stance, or that one is incapable of dealing damage with ranged abilities. This is wrong and...
