Elementalist / Elementalist - WvW Defensive / All Around
« on: October 22, 2017, 01:01:34 AM »

This is the Build I use on my Defensive Siege Toon. YES I have 3 Elementalists and EACH has a different function!
This Build will work great as a Siege Defender. Man your Siege until dropped then Mist Form over the Wall to the Interior of your base, heal and man your siege again.
Works nice running to a tower that needs help through the enemy using Mist Form.
I use this build for Zerging and solo. Good health / resistance and GREAT Damage!

General Discussion / Lion's Arch Evolution
« on: October 14, 2017, 07:31:27 AM »
Lion's Arch has always been a Major Hub in Tyria. I just wanted to post this so that players that are new to Guild Wars 2 can see how it has evolved over the years.

Lion's Arch as it was in Guild Wars 1
A small but very important Port and Commerce Center.







Lion's Arch - Guild Wars 2 Launch
The small Port Town of Guild Wars 1 Had grown by using the debris and wreckage of anything that washed up on the shore and became a haven for all.



The Destruction of Lion's Arch
Lion's Arch was destroyed in a HUGE war that scarred the face of Tyria forever. 



Lion's Arch _ Rebuilding

Within the last few years the Multiplayer server browser has become no longer supported. If you try to browse Servers it tells you that there are none and no online players.  Luckily I found THIS and all was explained.

You can get an up to date list of MOH Servers HERE

At the above site they also have a desktop version which I downloaded and installed and it works GREAT!  8)

General Discussion / Server not important to anything but WvW
« on: October 10, 2017, 06:35:28 AM »
Guilds are all Cross Server since the Mega-Server change a year or two ago but Server does matter to who you World vs World with. We have been playing Yak's Bend but it is full and no new players can join that Server.
You may join the Guild on any Server but if you would like to WvW with us I have started a second account on Crystal Desert and have been directing new DbD Members to go there.
I am considering transferring my main account there as well but I wanted to speak to a few that are still playing on Yak's Bend first and of course it is depending on interest of the Guild in WvW.
We have had a Guild on Yaks Bend for quite a while and we fought for them a very long time bring server rank up to top tier.  :'(

General Discussion / Star Metal
« on: October 08, 2017, 03:22:21 AM »
If you are looking to get current end game gear then you will be wanting Star Metal.  ???

Star Metal is harvested from Meteors that fall while the server is active. They have a very hard crust and underneath is the Star Metal. You will need more than harvesting tools to get to through the crust and get the Star Metal.
As far as I know the only two things that can get you in would be Explosive Jar and Fire Orb.
The Fire Orb SUCKS to use because it has a timer on it. This means if you are aiming at a target and throw the Orb it may bounce off, roll away then blow up.  :-[
Explosive Jar works much better! You will also want to have a foundation and a bow and arrows with you. Just set foundation so it as close to the bottom of the Star Metal Shell as can be  AND still be able to place an Explosive Jar that can be shot with a Bow and Arrow at a distance. Once ya blow the jar the Outer Shell will go away and the Star Metal is yours to harvest!
*IF this does not work then move to another Meteor drop. There is a known bug where the shell sometimes becomes invulnerable.   :'(

DPS / BosSligh's Pistol -vs- AR Main for DPS
« on: October 03, 2017, 05:47:43 AM »
Taken from our Archive.

07-29-2017, 09:22 PM
Hello DBD community,

BosSligh here to bring a little insight as to which weapon you should main. Now as a disclaimer, I am not saying that AR is better than Pistol, or vice versa, but what I am saying, is from my research and numbers, this is what I have come up with.¬


Now with this test, all gear was even. I am Item Level(IL) 121¬ and both the AR, and the Pistol are both Epic lvl 12's 3pip with superior¬ crit glyphs lvl 9. So as you can see, both of them are exactly even to get the best and most accurate numbers possible. (side note: your numbers will be higher or lower depending on your IL)¬ And now for the test...

Everyone that I have talked to about the AR has stated to use High Explosive Grenade(HEG) as an elite, because DPS wise, it produces higher numbers, but this is not the case. If you ¬ are using the Advanced Combat Tracker(ACT) addon, the numbers are going to "appear" higher, because there is no way to differentiate which dps is going where. I.E, there is no way to see your DPS on the boss, or his adds. All DPS is compiled into one number, thus showing a higher number. Here are the results of the test on a target dummy in Aggartha. Each of these tests are done in an exactly 1 minute rotation...

Pistol (main hand)+ AR (Off Hand)

Test 1: HEG(Elite)
Build: Incendiary Grenade(IG)+Flourish+HEG+Burst Fire+Seeking Bullet+Dual Shot
Passives: Stability+Auto Loader+Fatal Shot+Heavy Caliber Rounds(HCR)+ Double Down
Results: 75, 605 DPS (1 min rotation)

Test 2: Red Mist(Elite)
Build: IG+Flourish+Red Mist+Burst Fire+Hair Trigger+Dual Shot
Passives: Stability+Unerring Accuracy+Fatal Shot+HCR+Double Down
Results: 81,826 DPS (1 min rotation)

AR (main hand)+Pistol (off hand)


Test 1: HEG(elite)
Build: Lock & Load+IG+HEG+Dual Shot+Placed Shot+Burst Fire
Passives: Stability+Auto Loader+Slow Burn+HCR+Fatal Shot
Results: 101,543 DPS (1 min roatation)

Test 2: Red Mist
Build: Lock & Load+IG+Red Mist+Dual Shot+Placed Shot+Burst Fire
Passives: Stability+Unerring Accuracy+Fatal Shot+HCR+Double Down
Results: 141,784 DPS (1 min rotation)

Conclusion
So from these tests, it can be deducted that the AR is in fact stronger than the Pistol. These numbers were tested in perfect comparison without being bias to either side. Both had 1 min rotations, both were evenly matched in regards to their level, rarity, and glyphs, so there were no advantages to either side.¬
When choosing which weapon to pick, one must consider the fight that lies ahead. If you're about to fight a boss, that produces no adds, it is¬ safer to go with the Test 2: Red Mist combo, because your dps output will be higher. if the boss does produce adds, then it is safer to go with the Test 1: HEG, because your Area of Effects (AOEs) will hit everyone, which will ultimately give you a higher dps number, and help the team out by doing dmg to everything in the area.¬
Disclaimer: Everything in this game is about preference and gear. The pistol can be strong, but my belief is "do¬ not leave anything up to chance." When you are¬ using the pistol, you must wait or¬ get "lucky" to proc your chambers to the same color. This can be a hindrance on DPS because there are going to be times where you pop 3-5 skills, and not see a single matching chamber...it happens...but i noticed a huge spike in damage(dmg) when the chambers did proc the same colors. So all in all, both weapons can be effective, but everything is situational awareness, and what can potentially happen in a boss fight. The boss may do an AOE in the direction of the AR main user, and not the Pistol main user, thus the AR user has to stop DPS'ing, roll out the way, or move to a safe spot, and then start attacking again, while the Pistol main user is still attacking, thus by the end of the fight, producing a higher dps number than the AR...it happens, but in a world where both are attacking the same boss, un-interrupted, i do believe from my tests that the AR should be able to come out on top.¬
Thank you for reading
