Ran the old school slayer and skirm the other day and won a few CW’s against a WE/SH group and WE/Melee DoK. Not saying it’s better than ASW but it’s not the worst thing in the world. And in ORvR it still works great esp with a rdps comp.DanielWinner wrote: ↑Mon Apr 01, 2019 10:04 pmI would not bring range SW to any small scale group nowadays. I tried it and got just bitched by mara+SH (rSH > rSW was proven many times and it’s still the same). I learnt my lesson so should others. Other day my group also killed Kajtarn group with him on range SW so if even best SWs of this server can’t make it work, I doubt it worth any time. Only melee spec is decent enough.Manatikik wrote: ↑Mon Apr 01, 2019 9:28 pmWait. Do people actually think SH is better than SW besides solo kiting and Melee Squig WB spec?
Really feels like the SW’s posting in this thread either don’t understand the class and it’s place in a group or just want to change what that is to mirror BW. SW is currently excelling in small man play and is garbage in WB (granted every order dps besides BW and slayer and garbage in WB).
SW is not a primary DPS class, plain and simple. It’s a secondary DPS and it excels at that job.
Range builds are good for solo kill steals. Don’t even join WB, you will just take someone’s spot.
For a small scale RvR group, I’d better pick WL and BW.
Not saying you’ll out dps a BW wl or slayer but you aren’t necessarily a wet noodle.
