anthem of Fury

For 10 seconds, all allies within earshot gain 1-4 strikes of adrenaline the next time they use an attack skill. 5 energy 1 second activate 20 second recharge

this not only helps boost your skills to be ready to use, but also warrior who are usuing many adrenlin skills too.


Leader's Comfort

http://www.gwonline.net/wiki/images/2/2f/Pa_leadercomfort.jpg
You gain 15-75 Health. For each nearby ally, you also gain + 10-20 Health (maximum 140 Health). 5 energy 2 second recharge 8 second recharge

It's a pretty good self heal, at least i think so.

Anthem of Flame

For 10 seconds, the next attack skill used by each ally within earshot also causes Burning for 1-3 seconds. 5 energy 1 activate 10 second recharge

Really it seems if by yourself this may not be that great, but as a party buff, you can get a lot of flames.

Barbed Spear

If this attack hits, your target begins bleeding for 5-15 seconds. 3 (adrenal) None None

Well it's a simply fast charging skill that can cause constant bleeding.

Blazing Spear
http://www.gwonline.net/wiki/images/3/32/Pa_blazingspear.jpg If this attack hits, you deal + 5-30 damage and sets target foe on Fire for 1-3 seconds. 7 (adrenal) None None

A good damage skill with burning, what's not to like?

Stunning Strike

http://www.gwonline.net/wiki/images/3/36/Pa_stunningstrike.jpg

If this attack hits, you deal + 10-40 damage. If i hits a foe suffering from a Condition, that foe is also Dazed for 5-15 seconds. This is an elite skill. 8 (adrenal) None None

Well so far this is the only elite spear skill, and it is good so i included it.

cruel Spear
http://www.gwonline.net/wiki/images/d/d7/Pa_cruelspear.jpg If this attack hits, you deal + 5-30 damage. If it hits a non-moving target, you inflict a Deep Wound for 10 seconds. 7 (adrenal) None None

I picked this over

Merciless Spear
If this attack hits a foe with less than 50% Health, that foe suffers from a Deep Wound for 5-20 seconds. 6 (adrenal) None None


Simply because in pve enemys don't really move, and the fact this although has higher amount of deep wound time, by the time you get on focus fire and have enough adrenlin that you shouldn't need like 10 extra seconds of deepwound, and besides in 10 seconds you can build probably enough to just inflice the deep wound again.

Just because you need one.

I like it but those might change a bit when Nightfall comes out and I agree with you on the deep wound issue. I would try to add mighty throw in. If they don't channge it or nerf the dmg, it could be a deadly spike agaiinst a deapwounded target.

Cruel has to hit a non-moving non-attack target. I tried it in PvP and tried to combine it with stunning strike and was getting mad cause my target was never dazed. Ended with merciless and used blaze to inflict daze since at <50% hp a deep wound is scary.

after the agrro is held in pve and not fleeing then you use it for it's greatness ;)

I'd run:

Spear of Lightning
Cruel Spear
Glowing Signet
Leader's Comfort
Anthem of Flame
Anthem of Fury
Virulence [E]
Res Sig

Something like that. Or maybe a build with Fragility?

that looks like a cool build too, spear of lightning drains a lot of energy out of you though

Cruel Spear
Glowing Signet
Leader's Comfort
Anthem of Flame
Anthem of Fury
Virulence [E]
Res Sig


Glowing Sig is there for a reason :)

And you won't be spamming SoL like the R/Ps do. Maybe I could put in Vicious Strike instead of SoL and Mighty Throw instead of Cruel Spear?

mighty throw takes 3 seconds to activate, it really doesn't seem too worth it. Glowing signet is good, but with 2 pips i don't think even that will be able to pull off all that. Even if some other paragon was usuing aria of power to give you 4 pips it wouldn't be working because virulence is a spell. If you took barbed spear and had like 15 seconds of bleeding it would be probalby better since you could spread the bleeding around a bit better since you could then cap the degen on one foe while having 3 degen to others.
