I've been a huge WoW fan since day one and loved PvP on a bunch of different characters that I played over the past 6-7 years. After hearing about GW2 and watching a few videos I decided to try it out and initially I was a little skeptic. In WoW I loved playing a class that could juke others, that had CC and so forth and in GW2 there isn't much of that going on so I wasn't sure how much I'd like it.

Well after playing it 2 Beta Weekends I am absolutely inlove with the game and that dodging mechanic is the coolest and most addicting ability I've ever used. Even though there aren't any long CC chains like I used to love or a ton of interrupts, it has other smaller mechanics that make you feel very rewarded when you outplay someone. I picked a warrior and I really enjoyed it because there are so many different ways you can play it with different weapon sets. You can choose to be a warrior with high mobility or one that stuns a lot or big burst abilities or one focused on doing bleeding damage or even a ranged warrior shooting a rifle with no pet! Anyways, I recorded myself playing this past weekend and I came up with 3 videos, thought that maybe some of you might like to see them:







Hope you'll enjoy them and give GW2 a shot!

By the way, this will not work for embedded videos.

I'm very surprised by how many people actually have fallen in love with the warrior. Quite often games fail to make such a basic class very boring. However in this game it really is a joy to play.

The way weapon skills work in this game make the warrior a jack-of-all trades type class.

I am one of those people. I NEVER play the "basic strength" class as a main, but Warrior it is for me (for now).

I played a lot of Warrior in the last BWE and it's going to be a ton of fun. Both in PVE and PVP.


I love that I can go Rifle/Longbow in PVE and play a perfectly capable "Hunter" but without the shitty pet!
Bye again! This game isn't fun when you don't know anyone else that still plays.

Now that you mention it, it did always really bug me that "ranger" type classes always had a pet and you could never make it viable with one.  Then again I am not a fan of "pet" classes to begin with.

i really wish i could see more than warriors using GS + Eviscerate builds and relying solely in hundred blades + bull charge and dat eviscerate crit to kill someone. Sorry, but at some point, it becomes kinda boring. All the warrior videos I watched relied on that strategy.
Let's see if Anet gives some love to other warrior weapons and utility skills(from what I'v seen rifles are not that bad either)

You'll stop seeing them once they realize how easy they are to hard counter.

GS is one of the worst weapons along with longbow. Just use axe, sword, or rifle main hands

A quick condition based build I threw together because of that video.
http://gw2skills.net...IbNuak1sqYUx0DA

I chose a bit more defensive utility skills except FGJ, which is perfect for this build.
Synergies within the build:
  • Relatively high crit chance + 60% chance to bleed on crit + 33% to bleed on crit (trait) (-> bleeds!)
  • The above + 10% damage against bleeding foes (trait) (-> more damage!)
  • Both 1. and 2. + sword ultimate + Fury on immobilize (trait) (-> rampage!)
  • Bow adrenaline skill + sword leap = Burning aura (-> perma burning in melee range!)
Alternatives:
  • Sure Footed -> Turtle's Defense
  • Stronger Bowstrings ->  Leg Specialist (Fury buff on Sword 3) or Empowered
  • Signet of Stamina -> Signet of Fury or whatever you like
I use +10% cond duration runes, I did not calculate if it reaches an additional tick. If it doesnt just take more Divinity runes or chose more cond duration.

Looking forward to test it today.

Moldran from team Paradigm and his Defensive Warrior build for those that want to see more than GS/Evescerate builds.



There are some other videos on GW2Guru that also feature a run and gun Rifle/Axe and Warhorn and also Hammer/Mace and Shield.
