[QUOTE=lum1naire;23497393]oh nice, if I ever get back my account I'll run that warrior build. I don't have any expansions so should be good. Well, except for that one EoTN skill...[/QUOTE] Executioner's Strike works as well. It's just not quite as good. It isn't as spammable, and it lacks the conditional deepwound. The extra deepwound will rarely come into play, but it's still nice to have. At the standard attribute spread body blow deals the same bonus damage with any weapon for less adrenaline, and has a free bonus. I run 12+1+1 axe, 12+2 strength, Sentinel's insignia on the armor with a stonefist on my hands (hands get hit the least so the armor is less important). If I trust my monk (not RA), I may run with 15 or even 16 axe. Warriors are really the only class that can get away with that because 116 armor against pretty much everything lets you just shrug off anything but concentrated fire. You want 14 strength because with 13 if you get weakness you will loose your extra 20 armor against elemental damage due to weakness decreasing your attributes by 1.
i really just wanna finish the missions, in nightfall and eotn, but damn i have so many games to play
My guild leader got us kicked out of the alliance for 'making bad jokes'. I am sad now, and might leave the guild to join one of the alliance guilds.
Bad jokes like did you hear the one about the really high wall? Well I can't tell you. You'd never get over it, or bad jokes as in racial/sexist slurs? In other news, my lvl 5 runner now has a Tyrian exploration title. :smug:
If someone needs help just add me and I can help when am online, got various good level 20 chars, all campaigns completed, too, so anything in HM is possible too, can also solo some shit in missions if you so wish. Main char(ish): Koko The Dervish

Also, grats, that's an interesting combination :v:
Oh yeah. Anyone willing to do Shards of Orr in Hard Mode? I need Shards of Orr, Vloxen Excavations, and Secret Lair of the Snowmen :laugh: in HM on my Dervish. I'm thinking typical discord BS with my derv running Mel and multiple PBAOE holy spells. Worked pretty well for H&Hing it in normal mode. I hate fendi though. That fight just isn't fun. It isn't particularly difficult if you pull him around in circles, but it's just another boss with loldamage and stupid amounts of health. On top of that, he has respawning minions that can AOE spike your group, and heroes like to bunch. With asuran scan and aura of holy might I can practically kill him by myself in 3 cycles (hit in the 300s easily), but the fight just manages to piss me off every single time.

Can you guys help? I haven't been on Guild Wars for about 6 months or so and I think my email was either one thing or another because I cant remember if I updated the email or not. I go to reset password but then that just doesnt resend it to either emails. Please help.

god this is fuckin pissing me off, so Im a dervish trying to get through the nightfall storyline, and Im stuck on some stupid mission, so I go look up some pve builds and most of em say go get an avatar, so I try to go get an avatar of lyssa, wtf, she attacks and there goes like 3 of my guys. What the fuck am I supposed to do Edit: Im wondering what I should do, better armor and if so where to go?, maybe you guys know a good build that has worked for you?

If you can remember any characters on your account that might help. [QUOTE=Newbienice99;23557476]Urgoz! :argh: Exactly what it sounds like.[/QUOTE] Urgoz at least hits single targets. Chilblains, desecrate enchantments, and Feast of Corruption. Prot's just get eaten. Shit, frostmaws burrows is easier, and that has wurm bile which does 800 damage per target if it doesn't get removed.

We have no idea what mission you are referring to, or what build you are talking about. Avatars are pretty meh when you can abuse Asuran Scan and Aura of Holy Might to hit for 300 damage. EDIT: You also haven't provided any character names so we can't contact you in game.

Do names have to have 2 names in them if that's so its probably the character name I need to check. -Seems yes they do. Tomorrow I'll try and use the double names I can think of.
[QUOTE=shemer77;23571764](Redacted), im in the fp guild Mission im stuck in: Rilohn Refuge Yea but asuran scan from what I saw was an eotn skill all i got are prophecies and nightfall.[/QUOTE] Alright. Added you. I can go over some basic dervish builds when I see you.

[/QUOTE] I unfortunately had a horrible experience with the support where they made me create a NCsoft master account why the fuck do I have to create another one because I'm under 18? all your games are rated T what the hell sure i'll just ask my mom to make one cool [editline]01:06AM[/editline] I know I should of lied and put 19 or something anyways, I always do, but I figured it wouldn't matter this one time...
To be honest, I don't see that as that big of an inconvenience, but to each their own. It takes 5 minutes, and if you are using your spam email, why do you care? The master account is required for some of the online store purchases for crap in the game. Originally it wasn't important, but it is essentially required for purchasing stuff through the store. Having a separate Guild Wars account, with its own in game store account, and then trying to merge those with a master account was a bit of a fiasco since I couldn't remember the credentials for the store account. (Had to do this for the bonus 4th year storage slot) If you are just creating the account it shouldn't be a real problem, unless you are missing credentials, in which case, recovering them and then merging afterward would be easier, unless they aren't letting you do that. I'm not entirely sure what you are getting hung up on since this didn't happen to me. I had to send in my keys. It took a while to get everything straightened out, but it wasn't like they were asshats about it. Security is security. They have to know you are who you claim you are. People are idiots and give out their passwords, hell.. I've even had people tell me their account keys back when I was an admin/super officer for my old alliance. Are they passing the buck with endless form letters or what? Also. Does anyone else use TexMod? I don't know how people live without the fixed adrenaline indicators, spirit radar, and the default hero flags. There's dozen of cosmetic things, but those fix so many of my complaints with the default UI.
well the weirder thing in my case is my account is tied to a different NCsoft master account. Yeah somebody got their hands on it god knows how.
Ahh forgot characters have to have two names. That's why I couldn't log in! Anyway in now and collected birthday presents. Got one orange and one purple!

Maybe it's about time I tried it again. I stopped using it in the end because since it was about two or three years old now...? That it wasn't compatible in some way, even though I have a DX9-compatible machine. Maybe now that I've formatted recently, things are different. Any particular mods you could recommend besides the ones you mentioned?
If you are working on cartrography, you may want the cartography made easy one. [url]http://www.mediafire.com/?k50zdqnehwn[/url] The enhanced adrenaline display. If you play a warrior, or a paragon this makes your life so much easier. [url]http://rapidshare.com/files/44097501/adrenaline.tpf[/url] Enhanced Hero Flags [url]http://rapidshare.com/files/47919039/heroflags_v5.tpf[/url] The minimalist spirit radar. This just adds a spirit rage ring on your compass. [url]http://www.chaos-rising.com/stuff/thunder/gw/mods/SpiritRadar.tpf[/url] I also run with a health mod that adds lines on all health bars at 25, 50, 75%. I used to run with an enhanced critical hit notice, but don't use it anymore. As for cosmetic things I run with black paragon wings. They stand out better and look better. [url]http://www.box.net/shared/a673x8fva5[/url] I use the old whirlwind attack icon. The new one just doesn't compare. [url]http://www.box.net/shared/g7z5g0hbxh[/url] Some people use the high resolution skill icons, but some of them weren't formatted entirely correctly, and many of them use older/alternate icons, which can throw you off slightly. I don't use this, but I find it amusing. Xunlai Weighted Companion Chest.

Cool! I'll try some of them out in the morning. While digging around for texture stuff I also came across [url=http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/DirectSong]this thing[/url] that sounded pretty cool. And a tool to substitute in other music of course. I'm not too sure if it works and I'm a bit too tired at the moment to sit around to find out, but if it does that is neat.
No idea about substituting the music in, but direct song offers absolutely god awful rips if memory serves. I also usually just have my library playing instead of ingame music since I've heard it all hundreds, if not thousands of times. Friend of mine snagged some stuff from Direct Song and threw it in a spectral analyzer and said it looked like crap. I haven't listened to the stuff you buy, but the bonus codes sound pretty bad. I'm a bit of an audiophile though, so I'm very picky about some things.
Just got through Thunderhead Keep with my group. Prophecies will be the first campaign I'll have completed, then we are moving on to the Eye of the North quests. :-)
I had to leave to Texas on pretty short notice and didn't have time to let everyone know, and didn't have much access to the internet while I was gone. So, to those who despaired since the FP guild was suffering from the inability to get new members and what not, I'm very sorry. But I'm back now and I'll be promoting officers and we can get everything else underway pretty quickly now.
I didn't explore all of the VERY beginning area of the Factions campaign. That extremely basic tutorial area ("Click me to get a quest. Move with WASD." etc) Can I still get the Canthan cartographer title?
I'm actually not sure if it's possible to go back to that area, although I think you are usually able to explore some of it when the Shing Jea Boardwalk is open.
[QUOTE=PsYchOsIs;23632322]I'm actually not sure if it's possible to go back to that area, although I think you are usually able to explore some of it when the Shing Jea Boardwalk is open.[/QUOTE] And the next one is in about a year, isn't it? :/
I think the next big celebration is Halloween, or February next year, so... Yeah. [url=http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Shing_Jea_Boardwalk#Notes]Unless you have a Shadow Step or Teleport skill[/url], you would have to wait until then, I suppose.
Oh, I have Assassin as secondary.
