Don't see why you're using Vampirism, I'd use a Conjure or FW instead --Gimmethegepgun 09:09, 13 August 2007 (CDT)
Well, since she's not using multi-shots, Vampirism adds more damage than FW.Ereanorsign.jpgPvEreanor 10:38, 13 August 2007 (CDT)
Lack of survivability, considering you've got two attack skills that are half range, and it's almost solely focused on offense (something a Ranger isn't too good at). Good things are the dual interrupts no Ranger should go without, Concussion Shot seems kind of pricey, though high Expertise would negate it. Needling Shot seems out of place, considering Point-Blank and Zojun's should outpower it considerably at the expense of energy. Oh, and lastly WTB attribute point spending. At a glance, Expertise doesn't look like enough energy management for this build. Depends on equipment too, I guess. --Kale Ironfist 21:55, 13 August 2007 (CDT)
Ugh... where did Vampirism come from? and todays most random skill use goes to... =) 15:48, 14 August 2007 (CDT)
Bleh, I must have been partially blind. Point-Blank/Zojun's is 5 now? There goes my energy cost argument. --Kale Ironfist 22:13, 14 August 2007 (CDT)

Expert Focus is another prep, and then you can't use Glass Arrows? Vampirism is a filler skill, usually that would be a rez or something. However, it is a nice general skill in any of the high-end PvE areas (not Elite missions though), heals you a bit and does lifesteal, serves as a distraction or a trap, draws enemy fire for a few seconds, recharges resonably quick, costs reduced by Expertise...etc. Also, I take Gaze of Fury sometimes, so R/E with Conjures would not like that. Conjures also have problems - needs attribute investments to make any noticable difference, long recharge, no cover enchant so maybe stripped. Also there is no "Conjure Earth" and my favorite PvE shortbow is Ebon. Basically I'm saying, Conjures are a bit too limiting for me. As to Multi-Shots - well, when you are against high AL foes, I've found that multishots are pretty sux for damage. Point Blank Shot and Zojun's Shot punch through just about anything quick with about +50 bonus damage on Glass Arrows. Multi-shots rely on your Bow hitting high or crits, and that is a gamble. Min bow damage is 6, +19 under Glass and 15^50 and +20% Customized, but high AL reduces your ~35 damage to like 10 or something. And remember, both Dual and Triple Shot have innate reduced damage anyways. I also don't have Triple Shot cuz I don't do FFF. Dual Shot and Forked Shot also have problems - cost 10 Energy so not so spammable, Dual has long recharge, Forked condition can be hard to meet in many places. Especially when you have a Prot monk with you...

"Lack of Survivability" Eh, lolz? You've got frontliners to engage the enemy, Rangers have the best Elemental AL, and 70 isn't too bad anyways if you aren't tanking (which you're not). You would be surprised how the AI reacts to half-range archers - I still get ignored in place of the party's casters or tanks. Moreover my Ranger has just Druid's Armor, which is the lowest AL you could get as a Ranger other than Survivor or whatever...and yet, I still have never really been hit much. Whether it is Margonites, Torment Demons, Shiro Tagachi, Shiro'ken, or Titans, I have found my survivability to be just fine. I never carry a rez and almost never have self-heal anyways so yeah. I've beaten Nightfall and Factions with this build, at least anything past Lorelle Jade Cutter, and I have not died once. Except for a few cases where I would have died regardless of build...

Rangers aren't too good at pure offense, that is true Kale. However, I'm lazy and Beastmaster is too much button-mashing for me...Barraging is totally boring...Trapping is a lot of trouble with just Heroes and Henchmen...and Touchers are also labor intensive. I am one of those Ranger who likes Burning Arrow and stuff for pure +damage killing power...since I'm too lazy to run PS+CG or Magebane Shot. Anyway, yeah, you can have the point there. "I am not fulfilling my role in the party as a Ranger."

Concussion Shot is pricey, I'll also agree to that. I did not have time to put up the whole Build page that I made for this one, on that I mention that you have several options for Concussion replacement, such as the ever-useful Lightbringer's Gaze or perhaps Whirling Defense for "survivability" should you ever need it...On the other hand, since you're already at such close range, you aren't likely to miss with Concussion if you know what you're doing (and I do). Also, if you can afford to do Daze, the enemy probably used lots of long-casting spells so you can recoup Energy by just shooting them normally. If you can't waste a Concussion the enemy probably used fast-casting spells in which case you just Dshot and Savage Shot and hope it hits. Concussion is utility should you need it...

Needling Shot fits quite well tbh. Things get to half health pretty quick, and once they do, bam! You keep smacking them with 27+19=46 damage shots very quick. It is a great way to finish off foes. Since it has instant recharge and one-second activation, you actually end up attacking faster and getting higher DPS than if you continued to use Point Blank Shot and Zojun's Shot under 50%. Also, the "flies faster than normal" part is very nice, since you can even pound fleeing/kiting foes under 50%. Chasing a fleeing foe to use Point Blank is no fun. Finally, in some circumstances Needling spam is much better. For example Call to the Torment, Needling does like 95 damage/second, works great to take 'em out fast. Or against Shiro's Battle Scars. I'd rather DPS during that than punching spike damage. Shiro with 100+ Life Stealing is not fun. 46 life steal is more manageable.

WTB attribute spending? Yeah, you should have seen, everything costs 5 energy. If you just spam Point Blank and Zojun's, you actually end up gaining Energy from natural +3 Energy regeneration. This is really nice, since it means you're nearly always at full Energy and tacking on Savage Shot often doesn't deplete you too much. This gives the build endurance, or rather, it can keep up continued offense for a long time without much worries. Even with Needling Shot, it takes a LOT of shots before you run into Energy worries. And if I ever used a Zealous bow...well. Also remember I have Druid's armor, so about 33 max energy there.

Oh and to whoever mentioned Favorable Winds - 60 second recharge ftl, easily killed Spirit ftl...and, FW ftl against enemy archers, like Naga Archer (bleh). FW should only be used in teams of multiple archers, in places where foes aren't likely to take advantage of other words, Bad General Skill. Vampirism > FW for my build.

Anyways, this build got me through a great number of fairly difficult PvE places, and so I'm sticking by it. Even if it does have some problems. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 21:42, 20 August 2007 (CDT)

Hehe, yeah, I didn't notice Point-Blank/Zojun's was 5 until I saw in Margrids skill inventory window it wasn't the 10 I was expecting it to be. I skip over professions I don't play much in skill updates, so heh. The buff in damage is nice though. At least I know what I'll be doing with my Ranger when I get bored practicing interrupts (bad wireless connection ftl). --Kale Ironfist 00:00, 21 August 2007 (CDT)

Your Featured Build[]

Needs serious work >.> For one, including Vampirism in it means that it is a PvE-only build. Therefore, as the aim is PvE.... I would personally use a differend build... Being the build that I myself use. xD Then again, YOU wouldn't use it since you carry no resurrection skills in PvE... However, I may as well say what I use instead ^^;. Broad Head Arrow - Savage Shot - Throw Dirt - Lightning Reflexes - Optional - Mend body and soul - Vampirism - Flesh of my flesh. (I personally carry Winter as the optional slot, so I can restrict all elemental damage to a single type, and wear Frostbound Armor.) ^^ I've used it to vanquish 25/33 of Cantha, and it hasn't failed me yet. 01:29, 23 August 2007 (CDT)

/Disagree. I never PvP, and my build got me through all of PvE flawlessly ever since I got Glass Arrows capped...comparable to your Vanquishing record. BHA is a very conditional elite, next to useless in all of Prophecies and only somewhat useful for the harder areas of Cantha and Elona. Throw Dirt is very meh, you're relying on melee enemies to advance to the backrow when you could just kill them instead. Lightning Reflexes on your build, meh, useless except for defense since you have no real attack skills that benefit from it. Winter + Frostbound is rather niche, since Ranger already has huge Elemental armor and that +10 from Frostbound makes negligible difference for a wasted skillslot. You should really consider using Dshot instead. Also I'm not sure why you use Mend Body and Soul...unless you usually carry another Rit or Ranger on your team, that spell becomes useless once Vampirism and/or Winter go down. And that happens pretty quick in most places. Besides that, Ranger's job isn't to heal other partymembers, and self-condition-removal is much easier with Antidote Signet or perhaps Mending Touch. Other party members should probably be relying on the Monks or Rits for condition removal. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 01:39, 23 August 2007 (CDT)

/Agree. Just used your build trough the entire Sneak Peek Weekend, and it rocks. My multi-shooter still spikes better, but this is great for fast-paced play, less time preparing helps. And you were totally right about AI reaction, I'm pretty sure I got attacked more often as a backliner. Good work. Ereanorsign.jpgPvEreanor 09:27, 27 August 2007 (CDT)

thinking of this, it is related in inflicting condition on yourself... i don't care. - Y0_ich_halt Y0 ich halt logo.jpg contribs 20:46, 8 September 2007 (CDT)

There are lots of skills that do self-inflict conditions, so I don't see how that one in particular should be listed...Bleeding and Bleeding, Necro and Necro, yeah...Elite Mesmer Touch-range Blind on both you and the Foe, no. Sure, damage != lifesteal, but they are more close than SoM. Although really, with the "above 50%" thing, it is quite unique skill. Though I guess SoA's sac is comparable to that. I dunno.

That card would make Rurik himself proud, nice job :) ToA has its own pic when you click on Map Travel to the Outpost doesn't it? Also I'm a bit confused on the Cumulative: you pay 2 Mana + an additional 1 Mana for each turn it's in play? Wouldn't it thus become more and more useless as time goes on? Meh, I guess you are the expert though, haven't done Magic for a really long time, dunno all the new rules and meta and stuff :) Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 20:50, 9 September 2007 (CDT)

I should grab a new pic for ToA, and Usually Cumulative upkeep adds an extra benefit when the card is destroyed by it's own effect. In this case for ToA it would probably be When this card is destroyed remove all creatures from the game (Being kicked out of the UW), or did you mean Echo? Which is where it keeps a steady cost.--Gigathrash 22:29, 9 September 2007 (CDT)
I was thinking Echo, I guess, because of the need for Favor of the Gods. Otherwise, it becomes a "useless" outpost, except for Rotscale runs. For a Cumulative effect, I would do: When ToA is destroyed, put X 1/1 Avatar Tokens into play, where X is the number of turns you paid Upkeep, max 6.

Altough, I must acknowledge that your Userpage is very original, actually, it's much more like a little community site than a userpage.Ereanorsign.jpgPvEreanor 23:35, 11 September 2007 (CDT)

Hi there, I hafta do like something for school, and I need some names of games where (extremely) violence is exposed, like manhunt and manhunt 2, do you know some other games? —ShadyGuy 10:47, 12 September 2007 (CDT)

Hey, what happened?[]

I'd only just noticed a day or two ago I was on your list of "Class A Wiki Users", and was enjoying the accolade, when all of a sudden ALL your lists are gone! :O Arshay Duskbrow 01:39, 13 September 2007 (CDT)

Many have already fled GWiki, and those that haven't are dying off slowly...there are only a few of us "hard-core" people left that will stay with GWiki to the end. GuildWiki has been critically wounded at the lowest and highest levels if you haven't noticed and we have been bleeding off for a long time, from as long ago as GWW was up...I don't feel it is either appropriate or accurate any more to list Admins/Sysops (because of resignations and because no one with system priviledges has updated that list in a long time) or Class A Wiki Users (because they are not really here anymore). Now, I realize this was something of a sweeping decision and many of those affected may not have actually fit the category. But, for now, I think that is what must be done. Until we reach some semblence of balance again, even be it a straight downward sloping line, I can't in good conscience or honestly publish such a list. Once we recover from: Wikia move, Gravewit leaving, Tanaric leaving, Barek leaving, 84-175 leaving...well. We'll see then. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 19:21, 13 September 2007 (CDT)
To be honest, no, I haven't noticed, and I think everyone is overrreacting. I look at Recent Changes and I see the same thing I've always seen: People fleshing out articles, discussing interesting things about the game, talking about their own experiences, etc...I really don't see any "critical wounds"... Arshay Duskbrow 21:10, 13 September 2007 (CDT)
They are new people, though, and lots of anons. Back in the good days I would see people like Skuld, Auron, Defiant Elements (miss him ;_;), Ichigo, etc. doing those sorts of things. You can say that this is just a "changing of the guard", a cycle, but the fact of the matter is that we really have lost a lot of our best editors, for one reason or another. Wikia move didn't help this at all. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 21:16, 13 September 2007 (CDT)
Pfft wounded? some of the bigwigs may be getitng involved and going about whatever but the userbase has ignored conflicts(build scandal for one) before and I am sure will again. Guidlwiki will go on. --Alari 21:19, 13 September 2007 (CDT)
Take heart. Although all may seem to be frozen soil now, it's really just nature's renewal at work. A fertile season will come again. ^_^ Arshay Duskbrow 21:24, 13 September 2007 (CDT)
Um, Barak, Tanaric, 84-175, and others were more than just "bigwigs". And the userbase did not "ignore" the "build scandal". GW:PNB, GuildWiki:Builds wipe, etc...many solutions were proposed, they gridlocked, we got nowhere and eventually we had to scrap the whole thing. The userbase killed the Builds section and then complained afterwards about it. And in case you didn't notice, we lost a great deal of editors after the Builds wipe, editors who came here mostly because of the Builds section. What do you think PvXBuilds is? It's a refugee camp founded by people like Defiant Elements who got fed up with GWiki over this very "scandal". If you want to call that "ignoring" then be my guest, but I see it as just another of the many enormous wounds GWiki has suffered and that have been contributing to its demise. We certainly did live through that, yes, but you would have to be blind to say it didn't cost us greatly too.
Arshay: When GW2 comes out, we're dead, and you know it. Our time here is limited, just like it will be for Guild Wars 1 itself, and even if you can't see it now the inherent decay in the system will definitely show itself in the coming days and weeks. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 21:26, 13 September 2007 (CDT)
All this negative talk is making me want to bust out my book-on-tape of The Raven. I too feel that the wiki is in decay. My only solace is that Wikia will eventually regret purchasing this wiki. :) Yes I am a very vengeful person. --Macros 21:31, 13 September 2007 (CDT)
I hate to be such a negative person, but the truth can be blunt sometimes. Just like Rapta, another valued editor who we lost. And for the record, I am one of the very few people who did this, and I am sorry for all of you who have no choice in the matter anymore. So you see, users like myself have a particular reason to be upset here: we haven't yet released our edits to anyone and it's a real moral agony to know that in the end of the day it doesn't matter anyways, if Gravewit can get away with selling the site and all that. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 21:40, 13 September 2007 (CDT)

(Reset) Yes, once GW2 comes out, this will all be swept away. But we knew that. Did anyone honestly think either this community, or Guild Wars period, was going to last forever?

The sound of the Gion temple bells echoes the impermanence of all things. The color of the Teak tree flowers reveals the truth that the prosperous must decline. The proud do not endure, they are like a dream on a spring night; the mighty fall at last, they are as dust before the wind.

Nothing lasts, let alone online games and their communities. Enjoy it while it's here, and when it passes, as all things must, start again and build a new world. Or don't. I may not get GW2, based on the things I'm hearing. But I'll always have good memories of GW, come what may. Arshay Duskbrow 22:02, 13 September 2007 (CDT)

Let me just point out that outrage among many of the user base did not come until the build wipe became extremely public close to the date. Many were unaware until certain users began to announce it and then later the message on build pages.
And no the wiki was not hurt. We still are strong, what data(other then builds) were lost because of that conflict? We are still the best source on the net and GW:EN articles prove we are as strong as ever. I'm sure many of the user base will start outraging sooner or later. But it will go by quietly for awhile. And barring something happening to the wikia server situation we will keep going. With new people replacing the people that got pissed and left. Screw the cynics and leavers. Out with the old unwilling and in with the new willing contributers.
Also, just because data additions have reaches a end doesn't mean the wiki will not be used. People will still need reference and the game will live long after GW2 come out. Then thoose loyal contributers wtth the new game will move to the new wiki while still checking this and life will go on.
I am not usually a very optimistic person. But I'll be damned if people say the wiki is doomed and scaring others away while I can show the bright side.
The bottom line: Unless servers get shut down cause of the situation then the wiki shall go on as always, just with different faces filling the same rolls.
Shit, I wrote a lot more then I had planned...--Alari 22:08, 13 September 2007 (CDT)
I wasn't arguing about that specifically, but that is a good way to put it. Even Skuld and Karlos would have to agree with you, that even though GWiki is really going down the tubes atm (from their eyes) they will always have fond memories of its good times too.
Guild Wars itself I am not worried about as much, since there are way too many hardcore players for it to ever permanently be crippled; if ANet keeps the servers open, people will come. I for one will be pleased to see less crowding in LA and stuff, and less trade spam too. And, ppl will still be grinding for the Hall of Monuments I am guessing :)
Alari: sorry but I can't help but disagree with almost everything you said. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 22:11, 13 September 2007 (CDT)
You are a die hard cynic apparently, I wouldn't expect you to agree with a optimist. I just want you to know the other point of view if your gonna insist on pushing yours.--Alari 22:16, 13 September 2007 (CDT)
I am not "pushing" my views on anyone, and I am not a "die-hard cynic" (I haven't called you "ignorant" or "apathetic" yet, have I?). Many editors agree with my stance, just as many agree with yours. Only time will tell who's right. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 22:22, 13 September 2007 (CDT)
I worded that wrong, people with opinions like yours are pushing it, but from the posts where you claimed a grim future for guildwiki I was under that impression.
And from all observations, you are indeed a die hard cynic when it comes to this issue, I'm just stating the facts as I see them.
I never claimed you insulted me... I claimed you have a opposing viewpoint that I would counter. I disagree with your assessment of the future of guidlwiki, that is all. --Alari 22:32, 13 September 2007 (CDT)
Erm..."people with opinions like yours are pushing it"? In any case, "I'm just stating the facts as I see them", to quote you again. And, "I disagree with your assessment of the future of" GuildWiki. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 22:34, 13 September 2007 (CDT)
Well then, unless you want to actually try to support your views rather then attacking the way I posted my comments then I have nothing more to say, I believe you are wrong, and the fact you wont reply to my reasoning makes me think I may be right, Good day.--Alari 22:39, 13 September 2007 (CDT)
Are you daft? I stated my reasoning and supported my views as best I could above. I fail to see you following suit, to be honest. I believe you are wrong, and the fact that you feel the need to drag on this pointless argument by claiming the moral high road is curious. Good day. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 22:42, 13 September 2007 (CDT)
Ok what? Curious? I simply challenged your explanation and in return you assaulted the way I posted mine. I don't understand where I am taking the moral highroad, if you aren't going to help me understand your reasoning more there is no point, the only reason I am still posting is because I feel the need to clarify this to you. --Alari 22:46, 13 September 2007 (CDT)
"the only reason I am still posting is because I feel the need to clarify this to you." Then please stop spamming my talkpage. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 22:50, 13 September 2007 (CDT)
What arrogance, you completely read around the point.... You have the right to delete my "spam" on your own userpage.
Hypocrisy burns, don't it? I wouldn't be surprised if you asked me how I sleep at night next. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 23:06, 13 September 2007 (CDT)
No one left Entropy. Skuld is busy ;), Auron has School, and so does DE. Besides, if you ever want to talk to any of us, we are all at PvX. Readem (talk*contribs) 15:18, 15 September 2007 (CDT)
Barek, 84-175, Tanaric all resigned admin/sysop status. I call that leaving. DE is not at this Wiki anymore. I call that leaving. Auron I don't recall saying anything about...and Skuld? Well if I had a userbox on my page that said "fuck gravewit, this user is outta here", then I would consider myself left. I dunno what you make of that... Anyways. PvX is not GWiki.

Re: User_talk:Barek#User_talk:[]

Just an FYI, I saw your post where you said "Barek did his duties - he is an GW:ADMIN and so it's his job to write these sorts of polite warnings whenever he does reverts and such" ... I had resigned my sysop status two days prior to your post (see Tanaric's talk page). My comment to the user was as a regular user pointing out the policy to another user who had broken the policy. If it had continued, a current admin would have needed to have been contacted. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 14:56, 15 September 2007 (CDT)

Nevermind ... I see from one of the sections above that you already learned this at some point after posting to my talk page. --- Barek (talkcontribs) - 15:03, 15 September 2007 (CDT)

Staffs vs. staves[]

Staffs is not only correct for the plural (esp. of pole-like instruments), but it also has a longer history seeing how "staff" comes from OE where the bilabial fricative was never voiced. cite. It is a common hypercorrection to regard staves as the only correct spelling. 00:43, 16 September 2007 (CDT)

We aren't and I am following the information in the Staff article, as well as what I've been taught in any English class I've ever had (it might also be listed in the "Common Misspellings" wiki corrections department)...but I digress that you seem to know your stuff. If you'd like to correct the Staff article, and if the community agrees, then we can allow both. The great boon and the great problem with Wikis is that everything must be consistent and cross-referenced for a working system. So, when we have an error, it often gets repeated many times before someone takes time to go back and correct it. Many/all of the other types of Staff, for their article, use "Staves"...This may be one such case, where we've been wrong all along and didn't know it. Entropy Sig.jpg (T/C) 00:47, 16 September 2007 (CDT)
No, I didn't mean that the wiki should adopt the staffs spelling. That would simply invite "corrections" from the unwashed masses. It was just a note to you because your edit message seemed to imply that "staffs" was not proper English. 00:50, 16 September 2007 (CDT)
"Unwashed masses" Hehe...Well, I have been taught ever since I could first say/write the word, that "staffs" was not proper English. I never thought to question the fact but you've opened my eyes. I always wondered why so many people continue to use "Staffs", if they had also been taught proper English. Could it be that they knew what you did, that it actually could be correct under some circumstances? Who knows...Anyways, I thank you much for the lesson, and I'll remember from now on to check with better authorities before automatically reflexing the "Change" button, ala SpellCheck. :) (No sarcasm meant here!)

Gunnar's Hold[]

Read the article's talk page before RVing that? Lord of all tyria 02:46, 16 September 2007 (CDT)

Goddamnit, it's Cynn all over again. For the record, I dislike it when people use outside links to Screenshots, and generally whenever some anon posts something with all CAPS or with smutty connotation it's safe to assume it is vandalism. To my defense also: Honestly, if you'd never read the talkpage of that article (why would I?), that looks at first glance to be a vandal post, easily. Whatever though, if we're gonna list it for Magi Malaquire too, then we might as well say so for Gunnar's Hold. Stupid ANet and their hormone-repressed game designers...
