[WL] Still viable?

Post#1 » Tue Jun 26, 2018 8:51 pm

So I'm coming back after taking several months off and I heard there was some work done to the WL that nerfed it. I'm a really casual player, and I'm wondering if they're worth playing now if I'm playing solo or in PUGs.

Still viable. Great for solo play and 6 mans. Not so great in WB RVR play.

They received a slight nerf but When adequately geared they can still defeat people in 3 seconds.

The nerf was to the guardian spec. The bread and butter Hunt/Axe is still solid.

Wouldn't really call it a nerf either. (Just my opinion). WL can still solo hunt and kill just about anything.
Play around with 6 man to figure out what mechanics/specs you like. For WB (and dungeons with Lords that can be aggro'd by pet) I recommend the No Pet option, which actually is a viable play mode now.

Pretty much this, still the most popular class in Order too. I rather get ganked by a WH than a wl :^)

Thanks guys, that's good to hear. Coming back I wanted to either play my WL or my Engineer (both about mid level) but I know Order has a lack of melee classes compared to Destro so I figure I'll pick my WL up

It's the easiest melee class to play on Order if you want immediate results.

WH still looks 10x cooler which is more important.
