If you want to screw up a B/P team, bring this... lol. ~~ User Frvwfr2 signature.jpg frvwfr2 (T/C) 15:25, 24 August 2007 (CDT)

Only works on foes! --Heelz 15:28, 24 August 2007 (CDT)
Oh, duh... lol. ~~ User Frvwfr2 signature.jpg frvwfr2 (T/C) 15:30, 24 August 2007 (CDT)
I'm missing once in a while when I use this spirit. Maybe it doesn't only work on foes? I'll test soon if no one else does. --Loonsbury 09:44, 5 September 2007 (CDT)

is 15% really that big of a deal? i can see why the ebon vanguard has this skill though (looks with hate at the charr rangers with dual shot and ignite arrows, especially the hard mode ones)

Its kind weak. They should make it scale the miss %. -- User Frvwfr2 signature.jpg frvwfr2 (T/C) 23:19, 24 August 2007 (CDT)
It would screw me but the charr rangers are nothing if they had Triple Shot,Dual Shot,Ignite Arrows and Conjure Flame i would be worried-the spike damage is awesome

they do hae all that but triple shot lol or do the wars have conjure flame

The only thing I can see this being useful for is running in a Price of Failure-type build, where your damage comes from foes Miss-ing. Because as a standalone this is complete junk. >.> Even if you're a Ritualist and are looking for a good target to use Soul Twisting, we have Destruction with the shortest recharge of all.

Hmm..shouldn't the name be..."Unfavorable Winds"?--Darksyde Never Again 20:35, 4 September 2007 (CDT)

I would think it should be "High Winds" since it creates a "Spirit of High Winds" --Loonsbury 08:51, 5 September 2007 (CDT)

Dunno about that. Square might come a'knockin'... --Kajex Firedrake 22:09, 8 September 2007 (CDT)

Nature Ritual

I don't know why Xeon changed the type of this skill. But it makes no sense that a Nature Ritual only affects foes. -- Warrior's Endurance.jpg numma_cway 05:32, 28 August 2007 (CDT)

Have you actually used the skill during the sneak preview? I'm positive the last time I used it, it was a nature ritual. It even uses a nature ritual-like animation above the character's head. Flechette 05:35, 28 August 2007 (CDT)
It said Ritual, the last time I saw it, not Nature Ritual. --Kale Ironfist 05:59, 28 August 2007 (CDT)
Then we are both wrong. It's neither a nature ritual or a ebon vanguard ritual. Period. it's in its own skill type. Flechette 06:07, 28 August 2007 (CDT)
Has anyone used Soul Twisting on it? This should either show if this is a ritual. If it's a ritual, you can also check if it is a Binding Ritual. I hope someone tested it so we can update the list of skill types. -- Warrior's Endurance.jpg numma_cway 13:39, 28 August 2007 (CDT)
I didn't believe it was an Ebon Vanguard Ritual either. but it indeed is. Winds type.jpg . Don't know if if it will stay that way though. Would they really introduce a quite superfluous skill type for just 1 skill? They should make it a Binding Ritual or a plain Ritual instead, no worries. -- Roland icon.png Roland of Gilead (talk) 15:23, 29 August 2007 (CDT)
Who says there's only one of these? We barely got to touch the Ebon Vanguard storyline. --Heelz 19:45, 29 August 2007 (CDT)

Not Only "Foes"

Missage Does this prove it? We should add a note, this doesn't just apply to "foes" as the skill description says. --Loonsbury 21:13, 16 September 2007 (CDT)

Heh, seems so. Although shouldn't it be added as a bug? It shouldnt be happening
Probably, but I wouldn't know whether it's a bug in the description or in the way it works - wouldn't be surprised either way. --Loonsbury 05:27, 18 September 2007 (CDT)
Oh dear, could this skill get any worse? >.> Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 05:30, 18 September 2007 (CDT)
I added a bug in the notes after testing with a bloodsong and summoned mursaat - they missed about 1/7 also. --Loonsbury 05:34, 18 September 2007 (CDT)
Srsly, you think they would at least do a rudimentary test for these things before releasing them... --Macros 06:18, 18 September 2007 (CDT)
But that's what players are for ;-) --Loonsbury 20:17, 18 September 2007 (CDT)
Or maybe the dummy used shadow form lol--Dunkoro 07:58, 25 September 2007 (CDT)
*looks at top of page* So this CAN screw over a B/P team! :P -- VipermagiSig.JPG -- (s)talkpage 08:30, 6 October 2007 (UTC)


Entropy, we need your LAME tag! PaintballerSig.jpg The Paintballer (T/C) 07:03, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

Or you could, you know, add it yourself? The Less Able to Make Effective tag is for anyone to use. --Kale Ironfist 08:45, 6 October 2007 (UTC)
Red thumbs down.png This Ebon Vanguard Ritual has been voted as Less Able to Make Effective (LAME).

Several users of GuildWiki have formed a consensus that this Ebon Vanguard Ritual sucks and badly needs an update from Anet.

This Ebon Vanguard Ritual was voted as lame for the following reasons:

  • Very weak effect - 15% is nothing.
  • Long recharge for such a weak effect.
  • Title track ranking has no bearing on effectiveness.

Seriously, even Icy Ground is better. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 03:40, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Effects Monitor

When I use this spirit it doesn't appears in the effects monitor like other spirits. Is it a bug? User Fei Star.gif °*° Fei °*° 20:32, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

It only effects foes so it wouldn't show up for you. Soothing has the same effect. (I'm making an assumption.) —JediRogue 20:33, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
