    Backstab d/d is a much better dps spec anyways.

    Welcome to every melee class ever. Also try a tankier build. I've seen bunker warriors hold points against 2 DPS traited allies without any issue. You're class is currently fotm in tPvP because its one of the easiest for scrubs to get kills with, just like thf was a few weeks ago. This means you can probably expect a warrior nerf soon.

The issue is that they're nerfing other classes already weaker than Warrior overall without touching Warrior, when they should be bringing other classes up to the same standard. I think there's a handful of things on Warrior that could use an adjustment/nerf, but fixing other classes would both be a higher priority and alleviate the need for some of the adjustments.
    This sums it up nicely. Warrior is the only job I've spent alot of time playing, so take this with a grain of salt, but a Warrior nerf wouldn't really help the other jobs any. Hundred blades is great for spike damage, but all somebody has to do to avoid it is move out of the way. Idk. Getting in melee range is risky and annoying as fuck sometimes in this game because everything moves around so quickly... you should get rewarded by kicking the shit out of something when you do it. The way I saw it coming in, Warrior is the only "traditional" DD job in the game. It seemed predictable that it would stand exactly where it does in the hierarchy.

    Too enraged right now to transfer them here. FUCKING GUARDIAN GETS NERFED BUT WARRIOR GETS BUFFED?? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

    And you can't spend your pact victory token either unless you beat the final mission after the update since the NPC only appears in an instance in the fort...

    Are you joking? lol

    The one aspect of Guardian nerfed is laughable. Save Yourselves is all well and good, but with stacked boon duration it's a bit much. It still functions in the same way for Save Yourselves > Contemplation of Purity lol bombs. Everything else is bug/exploit fixes.

    Warrior is nearly useless in tPvP, it's like Guardian except bad. Guardian is in fact so good I am in the process of leveling a second one to 80 because I got tired of human male animations.

    Also for anyone wondering, the karma reward for monthly achievement is 45,000 split between 10 account bound potions.

    Yeah I can't tell if he's serious or not. Save Yourselves is pretty ridiculous in PvP, so I have no qualms with them adjusting it as such. Zero nerfs otherwise, just bugfixes and a couple of very minor improvements. Admittedly, Symbol of Wrath is still shit compared to how it was two weeks ago, but at least they've rebuffed it a smidgin.

    at least you get some kind of attention. I really start to think anet hates rangers. a ninja nerf to shortbow and that's all we got since release. not a single bug fix from the huge list. /sigh

    Corrupt Boon: This skill now properly removes aegis rather than being blocked by it.
    ... HOW ABOUT YOU FIX IT SO YOU CAN USE THE ABILITY WHILE MOVING YOU MOTHERFUCKERS

    Nah. I am legitimately pissed that they haven't done shit to make ranger pets worth fuck all on anything that isn't trash content and haven't fixed any of the weapons yet though. When the only attack that's worthwhile outside of Quickening Zephyr is the autoattack on Shortbow, there's a problem.

    Karma boost works on the potions and there doesnt seem to be diminishing returns on karma gain after using all of them.

    Sounds like I need to try and finish my WvW kills later. That almost sounds too good. Got to 37/50 after like 3 hours, but the enemy just plain stopped existing after we took a base.

    4~6k karma per daily is pretty sexy, 60k+ per monthly is sexier, and 2.5k or so per explorable dungeon path is nice as well. glad to see the alternate means of gaining karma

    This is true. I kind of regret chugging mine so early, but it's cool.
    Some guy in LA was saying he got like 210k total w/ all the boosts stacked, he might've been bullshitting though.

    whoa, hold the press dear rng fellows: https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/foru.../Ranger-update

    Poof! Someone called and I am here. We made some ranger changes this patch, but had to go back on them because of risk factor. There are some bugs being fixed and quality of life improvements coming in the next patch, as well as some other significant ranger improvements. I would Literally tell you but I think it would be considered a bit of a spoiler so you will have to be patient.
    While we work hard to keep updates going on all professions, not very build us going to contain fixes for everyone due to the nature of software development. One problem with rangers is the lack of build diversity created by a number of sub par utility skills. Many signets, a shout or two, and spirits are all a bit lackluster. That is the first place to expect improvements. Second is trying to improve the feel/ pacing on some weapons.
    Ok I can’t type more with tiny phone finger keypad. See you in game!
    Jon
    this is a big deal because it's the first time ever that a dev even comments on the ranger situation. the only other time we saw a red name was after the ninja shortbow nerf, saying: "uh no, I think it works as intended".

    Anyone know if they moved that NPC in Fort Trinity into the non-instanced zones yet?
