Well, I was board, and decided to go to FA's for a while.

After fighting 2 sins with ZB, and a a guy who obviously watched too much power rangers playing a W/N screaming
I am the master of the undead , with his level 8 bone minions :rolleyes:,

I saw the most retarded build ever

picture this,
a ele with glyph of renewal and Iron mist

Iron mist makes target invinceble to all forms of damage except lightning, but gives a 90% slowdown, it lasts for at mac air, 18 seconds, it recharges in 30 seconds.

Paired with Glyph of Renewal, which makes next spell you use recharge instantly, this recharges in 15 seconds.

He then put Iron mist on Master Archetect Gunther, and kept it up with GoR.
He told the other team not to attack him

:laughing: :laughing: :laughing:

Well, I was lost for words, I was both mad and Rofling........
somehow, noone in our team had lightning damage, and needless to say, we lost.

what were your WTF moments?

i can't really think of anything quite as stupid as that but i did play with this idiot mesmer once

he was using a build with all spell interupts and stuff to stop casters. then 5mins into the battle he saw a warrior and promptly started spamming spells like backfire, energy burn, power drain and power spike at him. the warrior, having all adrenaline skills casually walked up to the mesmer and killed him in 2 hit

he then tried the same tactic on a paragon which had the same outcome lmao

Saw a W/E in RA with Meteor Shower. I thought it was mildy amusing as I watched him use all his energy, get exhaustion, and stand there for 5 seconds casting it, but what I found really funny was he cast it on our monk and she died in it.

A W/Mo with Light Of Deliverance, and a A/Mo with Zealous Benediction. Same team, luckily, they were enemies.

***EDIT***-This was RA.

***DOUBLE-EDIT***

55'ing in RA. This was me. Not a stupid build, but stupid where it was being used.

An officer who's now disappeared, possibly to the BF2142 side, told me of a ranger that chose not only to fight when he was told to cap, but when he was fighting he wasn't even using one. Single. Skill. :shocked:

Yesterday, my team and I were capping the streamside defense point (or whatever it's called) in Grenz Frontier. I was the last in line of our group, and was kind of seperated a bit from the 3rd person in line. (I got caught on that stupid rock in the stream, go ahead...laugh) When out of nowhere this W/N comes charging towards me, weapon held high, shouting something along the lines of "DIE NOOOOOB". I stand still and let him approach me to see what he has in store for me after making a comment like that. Well guess what this tough guy was packin'? ....Spiteful Spirit. I almost felt sorry for him in a way, but the pity was quickly covered up with laughter. I think all in all he may have done a total of 200-250 damage to me at most. He immediately cast SS on me and started wailing away, which I retorted with Insidious Parasite, Life Transfer, Life Siphon, and the spamming of some life steal skills. He dropped dead, and proceeded to follow up with "WTF?!?!". Few seconds later, I caught up with my team, and we resumed capping. :laugh: Oh, did I forget to mention he was using Frenzy? lmfao. good times, good times.

I love using my warrior in AB. He has since surpassed the enjoyment I got out of using my 'Sin there. There are lots of terrible warriors and builds in AB too. Most of them relying on monk secondary skills and spamming frenzy.

My contribution to this thread is for all of those PvP Tanks. You know who you are. Sucking up damage where you really shouldn't be, and becoming dead weight for your team. With the exception of adding an extra capture pip when grabbing a shrine, of course.

So keep on dancing in those Meteor Showers and SF bursts, Mr. PvP Tank. You're even more useless than those uber-enchantment Elementalists. At least they end up being a nice supposedly-squishy distraction, until their attackers realize what's happening and move on.

I played a couple of alliane battles with an earth/scythe dervish yesterday. The plan originally had been for me to use the earth skills to absorb damage while I used scythe attacks to kill the NPC's at the shrines, and avatar of Balthazar to add some speed for going from one shrine to another. (I wasn't counting on coordinated groups). At one point, though, I ended up as the amazing surviving dervish, I went to capture a luxon shrine, but some groups of 2 or 3 luxons came to try and kill me at the shrine, somehow my dervish survived for several minutes against several luxons, and even killed a couple of them. (They probably weren't that good of players, or were low direct damage types, one was a trapper.)

An E/R in my group. During the waiting time he was asked to show his skills. His skill bar had Charm and Comfort animal, and I was too tired at the time to point out that they might be useless for a nuker (the rest of his bar).

When we finally got in, he didn't have a pet! He cast Comfort Animal twice, then disconnected.
I was laughing my *** off.

This was RA, but I had a necro on my team with a bar dedicated on dying. He had Toxicity, Pestilence, barbed signet and I don't remember what else.
He said he was so tired of the leavers he decided to punish them by killing himself.
All he did was punish the non leavers, since we didn't have a healer or anything else on the party and still noone left.

mesmers with signet of devotion... ppl chasing you right to the elementalist shrine, then dying. Interrupting assassins is always fun, as is having holy veil on you and then you can just kill any mesmer/necro with ease (on a ranger that is).

I've heard of a signet of midnight using warrior in RA from a guildy. The warrior had no condition removal.....

Personally I experienced the dumbest pve build ever when I was trying to hire a runner to Lions Arch and the runner who said he had experience was a N/E using burning speed, whose only self healing move was animate vampiric horrors! :laugh:


The most retarded build I have ever done.... I tried using the thunderclap E/R build.... while on the Luxon side of Fort Aspenwood.:laugh:

He cast thunderclap on me and began to just attack with a bow for constant knockdown. I could just go make myself some tea as well... talk about annoying >_< Maybe it was you :shocked:

I tried thunderclap as well... with my ritualist. It was nice, until my energy dropped to nothing with a few channeling spells. Usually ended up ALMOST killing somebody :/

My friend uses Me build with Arcane Thievery, Arcane Larceny, Simple Thievery and no damage at all. He uses it just for fun. Once we went with 3 that kind of mesmers and laughed all the time.:grin:

Warrior with Backfire.

Monk with LoD, Heal Party, Firestorm and Flare. Spammin LoD when every1 is at 100% hp.

Orders Necro spamming orders in a full caster group.

I love coming up on these eles who use dervish enchants to become "invincible." Our group always runs a water ele/necro. These guys are so sure of themselves, they won't move even when under attack. So we put pressure on with melee as I drop a maelstrom on him followed up with ice spikes...and the coup de grace is rend with curses at 3 (since they run dervish enchants, it's a free 6 enchants removed for 5 energy and no damage to myself). Poor little guys never know what hit them until it's over.

I have been running a Blood/Death N/Mo build and one of the skills was Well of the Profane. It is really funny seeing Dervs with VoS or Avatars, Monks with Spellbreaker, and Warrior or Eles with Obsidian Flesh run in and get stripped of all enchants - they do die fast then.

The funniest one was a Warrior using Meteor - I was using a mes so it was easy to interrupt and he was so mad.

Flare spamming ranger

OK OK

I saw an Ele/W and Necro about to go mano ah mano. Then after seeing mark of rodgort I thought ele might have the upper hand. Then followed by that was Lava Front, Inferno, Flame Djnns Haste then the ele charged him with a sword :shocked: I was like wtf he just used spells that did nothing since they were all adjacent spells then charged the necro with a blade.

Pardon me I'm just thinking of this one again and its making me laugh......:laughing:

Saw a trapper alone doing his deeds at a shrine his side had under control. When we charged him he ran towards a small chokepoint so we let him go. Then we went past the chokepoint to go cap somemore and saw the trapper laying on the ground dead ?!? Then I saw a trapping ranger on our side ahead of us running away :grin:


The dumbest thing I'VE DONE was play a monk with no skills in AB. I joined my guild group and they usually run in once we all meet. I forgot I had no skills on my bar and to top it off my window minimized GW for a second. When I got back in we were in the battle and there was nothing for me to do but run.......:cry:

ha, once a not-so-noob did something very noobish.we were capping north o rankor and a geomancer decided to go farming. we got about halfway, maybe more, and we were killing a mob. we almost killed the mob when this farmer pulled 3 too many mobs right through us, basically killing us in a split second. our whole group quit but he actually managed to farm all four mobs quite easily.

I was in AB with my Ranger (I was using the RaO build for the first time). I got seperated from my team and came across a lone Ranger/Mesmer.

The moment he saw me i saw Apply Poison going up. I instantly thought "Burning Arrows" Ranger and prepared for the shot.....only to see Barrage being used and hitting me for 36 dmg. I ran to him hitting RaO and next he hit Zojuns Haste but instead of running he stood his ground. From there i witnessed his entire build - Barrage - Apply Poison - Zojuns Haste - Conjure Phantasm - Antidote Signet (i never hit him with any conditions the hammer was enough to wear him down).

Killed him and got called a F**king Touch Noob (As a R/W) and left :huh: I was wondering if he ever read the description of Barrage or just didnt understand what a preperation is :rolleyes:

Well, a D/E using Mystic Regenation, Sliver Armor, Armor of Earth, Conviction, Ward of Melee, Ward of Foes, and some other enchantments, I can't really remember his build well. But we couldn't kill him; we needed about 10 people to finally bring him down. REALLY annoying, he was standing in the middle of the res shrine; so everyone who got ressed there was attacking him. And NO ONE had enchantment removal...:huh:

The ranger part isn't a problem (expertise helps with dagger attacks, think how ranger/warriors can use warrior attacks well.)

That just seems like an unskilled player, not so much a bad build. (Though this could be lack of description.)

I know heket's rampage is better for the build, but what fun is that if you have frenz + 60AL and no cancel stance ^^

Erm, the idea was not use our elites as much as possible ^^

I had a wtf moment in ab the other night. I was playing my monk as per usual and a warrior dressed in dyed black fow armour comes running up to me. I was pretty low on mana and my team mates were otherwise engagaed so I though 'oh god time to die'.

But this warrior starts hacking on me with a sword and honest, he was doing almost 0 damage to me. So I cast my emergency 'not a team mate' heal on myself (healing breeze) and stood there still healing my team mates while this warrior is hacking at me.

I got curious and started to watch what skills was using and I just started laughing outloud. In between healing my teamies I saw him use 'watch yourself' 'shields up' and defy pain'. All while hacking on me and not being attacked from anywhere....Then he started to teleport around me, porting off to one side and running back in to me as if trying to find a weak side that his poor skills would exploit. Eventually my team captured the shrine (I asked my teamies to leave the warrior alone cos he wasn't doing any harm hehe) and we ran off, the warrior following behind for for a time until he saw a mob of our teamies coming his way.

I think that's my first real encounter with a ebaying noob of the higest degree :grin:

Last night I joined a pug with a Deadly Arts sin. Dancing Daggers was his only DArts skill. He had Unsuspecting Strike on his bar with 1 Dagger Mastery and 0 Critical Strikes. He had Shadow Refuge with 5 in Shadow Arts. He had Death's Charge with no visible exit strategy, but he did have an 11 spec Shatter Hex from his mesmer secondary if he wanted to be a kamikaze Shatter Hex bomb - assuming he got hexed sometime and had figured out the combo. He also had Backfire and Empathy at 11 Domination spec, which could have been interesting if he was playing like a mesmer in the disguise as an assassin and kept out of trouble... but he wasn't, he was a ninja-shaped punch bag. The funniest part? I was on monk.

I was on ab last night and saw a mm necro with his bunch of minions. being a mesmer I pulled out unnatural signet and started going through the minions killing them off as I went. then I cam across his flesh golem and went into histerics. it was level 18!. I looked at the rest of his minions and saw their levels were from level 12-16!!!

21-05-2007, 23:05
Oh some of the best stories feature the necro side....


Couple days ago while we were capping and a stray R/N started running toward our group. I was like oh great, lets see how long it will take to kill this toucher.

He then stops about 10 feet from us and starts casting.......guess what it is?!



Animate Flesh Golem, wooohoo - I was thinking this should be fun. I almost didn't want to start hexing him. He then puts a run skill on and leaves. Oh well we let him go. But as we start moving on to other cap points I see him in the distance wanding stuff with his trusty golem by his side. I see his Golem charge in to a group of minions where he then uses Putrid Flesh ( kills pet and spreads disease ) I see LOL in local chat by him followed by Dodge to run away.......his purpose was complete.

Almost as good as the Sin spamming heal party......or trying to

He charges at me and starts trying to kill me with his sword. He was barely doing anything and then to my amazement he starts casting (big surprise).

The Warrior put a low level empathy on me and then started casting Backfire!

A 55 hp monk with 465 hit points (he had the skill set but wrong hit points)
A monk with fireball, fire storm, and LIGHTNING JAVELIN (??)
A touch ranger with Plague Signet as his elite
A minion master with Life Transfer
A warrior putting up Wanderlust, Earthbind, Recuperation, and Pain
A warrior with Blood Ritual and Blood is Power
A monk spamming Order of Pain
A Paragon/Necromancer making level 21 flesh golems
A Dervish/Necromancer using Verata's Aura, enchanting himself with things like Heart of Holy Flame, Dust Cloak, spells that "bomb" when they end... then he tanked the Kurzicks and sacced himself to death(BiP). He was actually useful a little, the minions went wild and killed everyone
An assassin with Double Dragon
An elementalist with Bull's Charge and Power Attack
Monk with Illusionary Weaponry (I think his Illusion skill was at 6 or something)
A beastmaster with a level 5 Crocodile
I also saw a ViM trapper. But this one was W/R.

Let's see... *dig through screenshots*

Monk with IWAY (he mustn't be doing a good job if he can IWAY off his team)
Spiteful necro who echoed his ether feast
Mesmer/Assassin using Unsuspecting Strike, Diversion, Black Lotus Strike, and Critical strike.
Assassin/Mesmer using Crippling Anguish, Backfire, Diversion, Empathy, Death's Charged in to use Black Mantis Thrust, threw an Energy Tap at me, and put up Mantra of Inscriptions. She didn't even have max armor (Hitting her for about 100 damage with my unskilled bow attacks)
W/D using Avatar of Grenth
R/Mo with Life Barrier, Life Bond, and Blessed Signet... he was bonding every Kurzick in sight. Then he put up Nature's Renewal.
R/Rt with VwK, he tanked the minions and started using Lightning Reflexes
Idiot on the Luxon team using Death Pact Signet and suiciding.
Ritualist with Meteor Shower. Maybe the cast time and skill recharge made him mistake it for a binding ritual...
Ranger/Assassin who used Pin Down, then AoD'd in and used Malicious Strike (he switched to a scythe for it)
An assassin who screamed "I AM UCHIHA SASUKE!" and spammed Fire Storm, Fireball, Flare, Heart of Shadow, Dash, and Dancing Daggers... His other two skills? Master of Magic and Water Attunement. His spells were doing 30 damage to me, a 60 armor Mesmer. His Water Attunement lasted pretty darn long on him though.

A Paragon/Necromancer making level 21 flesh golems
A Dervish/Necromancer using Verata's Aura, enchanting himself with things like Heart of Holy Flame, Dust Cloak, spells that "bomb" when they end... then he tanked the Kurzicks and sacced himself to death(BiP). He was actually useful a little, the minions went wild and killed everyone
An assassin with Double Dragon
An elementalist with Bull's Charge and Power Attack
Monk with Illusionary Weaponry (I think his Illusion skill was at 6 or something)
A beastmaster with a level 5 Crocodile
I also saw a ViM trapper. But this one was W/R.

Let's see... *dig through screenshots*

Monk with IWAY (he mustn't be doing a good job if he can IWAY off his team)
Spiteful necro who echoed his ether feast
Mesmer/Assassin using Unsuspecting Strike, Diversion, Black Lotus Strike, and Critical strike.
Assassin/Mesmer using Crippling Anguish, Backfire, Diversion, Empathy, Death's Charged in to use Black Mantis Thrust, threw an Energy Tap at me, and put up Mantra of Inscriptions. She didn't even have max armor (Hitting her for about 100 damage with my unskilled bow attacks)
W/D using Avatar of Grenth
R/Mo with Life Barrier, Life Bond, and Blessed Signet... he was bonding every Kurzick in sight. Then he put up Nature's Renewal.
R/Rt with VwK, he tanked the minions and started using Lightning Reflexes
Idiot on the Luxon team using Death Pact Signet and suiciding.
Ritualist with Meteor Shower. Maybe the cast time and skill recharge made him mistake it for a binding ritual...
Ranger/Assassin who used Pin Down, then AoD'd in and used Malicious Strike (he switched to a scythe for it)
An assassin who screamed "I AM UCHIHA SASUKE!" and spammed Fire Storm, Fireball, Flare, Heart of Shadow, Dash, and Dancing Daggers... His other two skills? Master of Magic and Water Attunement. His spells were doing 30 damage to me, a 60 armor Mesmer. His Water Attunement lasted pretty darn long on him though.

I love alliance battles.

By the way, I saw a real wammo today (it's been a while since I saw real one), complete with Healing Hands, Mending, Balthasar's Spi, and Healing Breeze. Too bad he was missing heal sig and frenzy. And Echo.

Edit: my bad, it's healing hands, not glimmering light. But still, lmao.

I'm not sure if my build's the retarded one, or the other guy's was. I was playing a sword W/Me in FA. The other guy was a W/E with an IDS and Conjure Frost. He tried attacking me. Unfortunately for him, I had Lyssa's Balance, so I just stripped his one enchant and then Riposted and Deadly Riposted him until he was dead. The entire time he was screaming "NOOB." :rolleyes: Nevermind that he was the one who kept attacking through my ripostes.

Lately, I've been running a (probably) retarded W/Me build with Distracting Blow, Savage Slash and Power Return. Meteor Shower eles love me. :tongue:

I was capping a Shrine alone when a dervish came towards me, before he ran into my aggro, he started casting 6 enchantments on him self.

Mystic regen
Ebon dust
etc.

Then I used 1 skill / Rend Enchantments and removed all his enchantments, but it didnt stop him, he came over to me and started to attack with his weapon, I casted Spirit Rift > Channeled Strike > and dropped Grasping Was Kuurong. The next sec he was dead. ^^

i think he didnt have linnk skills or anything...maybe no dagger mastery either, because he was doing so little damage to me

Flare spamming ranger

I saw an Ele/W and Necro about to go mano ah mano. Then after seeing mark of rodgort I thought ele might have the upper hand. Then followed by that was Lava Front, Inferno, Flame Djnns Haste then the ele charged him with a sword :shocked: I was like wtf he just used spells that did nothing since they were all adjacent spells then charged the necro with a blade.

Pardon me I'm just thinking of this one again and its making me laugh......:laughing:


Sounds a bit like me, really :shocked:

More likely to be a "copycat" build tho- course you never want to use those "adjacent" skills unless you actually are adjacent.

It's actually one of my most fun builds to play. It's E/D actually (go figure), and the skills are Aura of rest, Mystic regen, Flame Djinns Haste, Inferno, Searing Heat, Mark of Rodgort, Fire Attunement, Mind Burn. The sword is a fiery dragon sword/fire staff swap. (People laugh their heads off at me running around with a blazing sword)

In effect, Mark of Rodgort is cast initially, which does nothing by itself. 4 enchants gives +12 health regen, and whenever a spell is cast, Aura gives self heal and is an excellent cover enchant. Fire is +7 degen on targets. The secret weapon (fiery dragon sword) is not there for damage (zero sword mastery), but to keep you in close to the target and keep him burning while you spam Inferno, Mind burn (which returns energy) and Flame Djinns haste (which gives big damage & +33 movement speed) until either the target dies or it's time for your quick getaway- thank you, FJH.

High damage, Fast cast/low interrupt, quick recharge, no energy problems, self heal, anti degen, running skill, good AoE degen (MoR), AoE for shrines- what more could any sensible ele want? Knockdown?

The adjacent skills are always cheap, high powered and quick recharge- no-one seems to use them, because (a) ele's are backliners, (b) too difficult to stay adjacent, (c) eles have weak armour, are "squishy" and die to quick.

Also saw Warriors running around with Firestorm and other Firemagiccrap. And of course the tanking Warriors with Dolyak Signet, Mending etc. Just walk away and watch them trying to follow you, or getting owned by spellcasters from distance.XD
Oh yeah, and that Mesmer that cast Backfire on me (as Warrior), while I only use Warrior skills, except for Mending Touch which I didn't need at that moment.o_O;

A luxon Ritualist who was wielding a hammer, he was rt/e, he targeted me (monk), then casted Ride The Lightning, followed by dissonance, soon followed by blinding flash, he then proceeded to cast ride the lightning again, which brought him into double exaustion, he then tried to body block me I guess, he just was running into me from behind, I proceeded to wand him until a warrior killed him, he then pmed me telling me that "If I was on my SP sin I would owned you!".

I was in AB playing my blood necro build having a good time with soul leech and whatnot and i cast vampiric gaze on a monk (which can be a pain if not dealt with fast) and he died in one hit (from full health). the initial confusion (wtf, vampiric gaze doesnt kill people by itself) wore off once i realized that i had targeted a 55. He must have been upset when i saw him again, and killed him the same way.

I pug'd with my resto rit, ice caves of sorrow i believe, and i was doing my job healing and this ranger kept using skills like flare and fireball (not sure which, maybe both) and when i asked him why he was using those skills as expertise doesn't affect spells, he told me to stop looking at him and the skills he was using, so i stopped healing him, he died a few times after that. Take that jerk.

This one has probably already been covered (it's just so silly it has to have been!):-

A sin running the A/E solo green farmer build, or even just any build based around shadow form! You can guess the results, teleports in to attack me, puts up shadow form, I wait for shadow form to run out, which it does pretty quickly, then 1 hit kill them as they only have about 41 health or so.......

Any toucher build run by a player who doesn't move to a different target when their target kytes.....

Oh and just to demonstrate my own humility, I decided to run a build called ride the lightning biter earlier (Ele Necro build), realised how useless it was when targets kept getting out of my reach before I could actually use any of the touch skills thanks to the obvious omission of any speed buff in the build! Great I can teleport in, great I can get 1 or 2 touches in, noooo they have run off with most of their health still! Apart from a couple of times where my victim was dafter than me and tried to fight me off...... Oh, and did I mention the massive exhaustion (dropped me to 18 energy at one point) when I kept trying to get in range again using RTL? lol

(that isn't the bad part btw) we were both contesting a shrine as we had seemingly both been deserted and i managed to kill him off. i captured the shrine and ran off to find my teammates. as i did this the ritualist was once again charging towards me. i killed him in the same way i had done before. he did this 5 times. the same result occured every time. i even sat on his corpse! and he still returned to be killed again. i ask why was he so desperate to kill me. i was alone and had killed him 1v1 already. he fought me several times during that match. it was fun woooop

I also had a ritualist with Arcane Mimicry on my team. First he managed to copy and create a level 1 Spirit of Preservation, replacing the other ritualist's high level version. The next game he copied Ebon Dust Aura, and used it for its short duration with his non-earth damage staff and no attack skills. The game after that he copied Energy Surge and made the enemy lose 3 energy and take 36 damage.

We once had a D/A on our team who was wielding a collosal scimitar. True, Dervish and Assassin both have generic melee skills which can work with a sword, but they do NOT have the SWORDSMANSHIP attribute.

Maybe he was a caster?

I had two sins attacking my Monk, and they didn't even use any skills, then a Dervish comes along and still couldn't take me down, and all I got in Local chat was to be called an annoying <insert word>.

2 things

1) Ranger using Choking Gas + Barrage, attempting to interupt more than 1 guy. Little did he know choking gas does that anyways, but is removed by barrage

2) Not a build per se, but one guy said "am i the only one mobbing?!"

Yes, the ABing community is full of strange people. Who would take two res? I hate it when people take a res. Why dont they just wait ten more seconds and we will be alive anyway!

I lol'ed. :laughing:


Anyway, the other day, I've run into a SF build with immolate in it (with They're on Fire). That person casted immolate right after the SF. That's called overkill, hon. I think you meant to do it the other way around.

On a paragon no less. I wonder how e-management was even possible.

Worst AB build I've ever seen?

[build=OwAS0YIPwVRi943BSCjfkYC]

Fortunately, the guy pinged it before we started. Normally, I'd make suggestions and mention a few improvements, but with this, I didn't even know where to start, apart from "Throw out each and every skill on there and try again." ...

I have had spiteful spirit and empathy put on me as a monk.
Once saw a team of two SF sins(around the time it was nerfed).
Seen plenty of people with pve skills including ursan.
One or two trappers.

I think it was probably just people who got lost on there way out of the underworld.

The worst Ranger and quite possibly build I've ever seen, I swear to GOD that I'm not making this up;

[build=OgYVgyUanbizho5baF1SBQ4Q4sZA]

As a guildy i linked the template too said "I cannot understand why he picked any of those skills... at all."

I went into fort Aspenwood once with:

1. Dwarven Battle Stance (e)
2. Renewing smash
3. Sprint
4. Shadow Refuge
5. Death's charge
6. Counter blow
7. Pulverizing Smash
8. Shroud of Distress

It was a success, in the sense that the two of three times i was able to attack someone without them running away, it did interrupt them well. Unfortunately, as you may expect, it did poorly otherwise, so I deleted it after the battle.

My most hilarious build I ever used consisted of 4 monks. 1 heal/prot monk, 2 smite monks (with [[zealot's fire]) and ... a hammer monk. With [[Backbreaker]. Serious fun, the hammer monk has virtually limitless energy, since he's a monk, in melee, and all stupid players c-space the nearest monk. With [[balthazar's spirit] you can simply spam your knockdowns and [[stonesoul strike] / [[holy strike]. It's only dangerous when you encounter a lot of enchant removal but oh well, it's a build mostly for laughs. It still kills quite nicely tho ;-)

I believe I used: [backbreaker][crushing blow][counter blow][bull's strike][stonesoul strike][holy strike][rush][balthazar's spirit]

I seem to recall the smite monks using:
[zealot's fire][air of enchantment][reversal of fortune][glyph of lesser energy][balthazar's aura][guardian][reversal of damage][smite hex]
You could of course change several skills, such as [[smite condition], [[scourge healing], [[judge's insight] or [[spear of light]

The prot/heal monk used a build something like this: [reversal of fortune][divine boon][protective spirit][spirit bond][shield of absorption][shielding hands][dismiss condition][Boon Signet]

best build ever to use if your looking for something funny to use in FA:
[build=OwRkUwHTXOmz/z/ZFmg4O0Qj4KA]
when some jerk is all bragging about your death, say"congrats, you killed a kamikazee, want a sticker"
DO NOT USE IN AB, WILL MAKE TEAMMATES WANT TO SMASH YOUR FACE IN, learn from my mistake....
also, taking vamp 20/20 enchant daggers is essential
and yes, this build is kinda spread out, but it's more of a swiss army knife than a sword if you get my jest.
also, vertas gaze is fun to use on very vocal mms who say "son of a -----, *character name* is ------- stealing my minions!"
good times

kamikaze, with one "e". Don't think it fits the theme correctly, other than the death nova...

Funniest I've seen recently was a hammer warrior with Apply Poison.

You have one skill that potentially hurts you, I wouldn't call it a kamikaze build. It's terrible no matter what you try to classify it as, at least warriors with Apply Poison I can see the logic behind this looks like you went A/N and threw random skills on your bar. there's no synergy whatsoever.

look i know this build has no synergy. the point of this build is to look for ways to die(i.e. death charge the turtle)
i belive i also said this build is meant to be fun, not make scence, gramps :P

(also, isn't that what this intire thread is about?)

BBcode looks like not working so:
This is the Monk which I got on my party.
Heal 12, Divine 12.
Patient Spirit, it looked good
Dwayna's Kiss, well this isn't too bad
Heal Party, uh here we go
Ethereal Light, more and more
Seed of Life, seriously... a PvE skill...
Glyph of Lesser Energy, this is cool
Karei's Healing Circle, go go gogo!!
Rebirth, not to forget res!

And what's the best: I said him that you can't use PvE skills in PvP.
He replied: "I know, I'm working on my PvP skills."

A guildie shared this build that he saw a W/E ping in a PUG. Not only is it spread exceedingly thin to render all his skills useless, but he has attributes in all 3 weapon types ANd he has an elite skill that no warrior in their right mind should ever carry around as they are almost always more likely to have less energy than their opponent.

I told my guildie he should really give him some tips, as this guy obviously does not realize how badly he does not understand this game. I know I would have. Just nicely say: hey, my friend, if you can be receptive to constructive feedback, I can give you a few pointers on how to create a proper build in this game.

I dont have a screen, but this was a bizare happening that happened once in AB. I think it was Grenz.
Anyway,As an Ele/Necro (with hardly any ther skills than water magic lol) I made a build randomly that had
Gylph of leser energy
Shatterstone
maelstrom
Shard Storm
glowing ice
Water attunement
Soul feast
armor of mist

I decided that I would try solo cappin' Ranger/Necro shrines (and it work'd =3) but thats not the amusing/strange part.
I got isolated from the rest of my group and ended up in a 1v1 with another E/N who it seemed anyway, had the same skillbar. lol we traded spells, with the animations moving in synch lol. in the end we killed eachother, (falling in synch as well) lol T'was a source of much amusement ^^;

I like going into RA with my 55 just to mess with people. There was once a team of all Melee and I was 55ing on them, this was our 13 consecutive win, which I have no idea how we did it but we did, eventually making it to round 19 after our partner quit. I got whispers of the losing time calling me names and such because I was 55ing in RA and I had no skill, even though the reason I went in there to just mess around.

Me and some alliance peoples were bored and went to AB - I rolled a GSS sin spiker, someone took a necro and we had a mesmer. We were overjoyed that we managed to pick up a monk, but didn't ask it to ping. It was Mo/A - what could go wrong right? Besides, none of us were too worried about sticking together, and I was gonna go gank random wandering casters for lulz.

We meet a hefty mob pretty early on in the game, and I die.

And suddenly, I'm alive again. Then I see it...and I ping...

'I am enchanted with Vengance!'

Hurrr.

The only heal skill they had actually brought with them was Healing Breeze. The rest of the skillbar consisted of Dash, Spotless Mind, Spotless Soul, Rebirth, Shadow Refuge and something else I don't remember. Urgh.

Or just a defensive set.

I was on the kurzick side of FA running a R/N fertile season+eoe bomber. The luxons had plowed through the gate and were ganking gunther just when i had got the hang of chaining my spirits >.<.I then ran in and set my spirits up.. (everyone was too nooby to notice what a deadly combo fertile season and eoe was) then i realised i set my spirits up too close to gunther *facepalm*. You know what happened next.

Isn't fertile season counter-productive to EoE, since everyone has more health and, therefore, needs more damage before EoE creates a chain, or does fertile also decrease the supposed 90% min necessary for EoE to trigger?

Skelegro

Fertile season gives everyone a big health boost and because it was a big fight everyone was a lowish health. When fertile season ended everyone's health droped, and at low health its like a massive death spike because they lost the amount of health fertile season gave them, then eoe does its job.

A guild me and my friends started called "We Ran out of Names [Jeez]" pretty much specialized in those WTF moments.
Our idea of doing TA (back when it was still around) was making 4 R/MO characters with nothing but healing and running skills. We'd then run in circles for the entire duration of the game, half the time the other team would resign/quit.
Our character names were:
A Homeless Drunk
A Drunk Homeless
Homeless and Drunk
Drunk and Homeless
We'd beg the other team for spare change and booze before running in circles for 15 minutes.

I was also the creator of one of the very first Wastrels Collapse knocklock sin builds, waaaay back when it was a completely unused skill. Me and my friends would all run the same knocklock build, sync into FA, and coordinate targets on vent.

We spawncamped the Luxons outside the fort. It was...unholy rape. We'd literally average 50-60 kills between us, without any deaths. Nobody used wastrels at all before that, so nobody really knew what was going on.
I miss those days...

Before I begin this tale everyone should know I'm a sin running a scythe build MEANT for taking on physical damage opponents in large groups.

Well it was the beginning of AB in the Ancestral Lands so I decided to go Cap the West Equipment Shrine because my team seemed to be neglecting it, as I start running out the West base door a mob of players comes running by me. As they were about to pass by me one stopped and so did the rest, so I figured I was in for a fight. I buffed up with Critical Eye, Assassin's Remedy, and Critical defense and proceeded to start spamming my attack skills, as I did this they all started their assault. To my general amusement I noticed they were all high physical damage players with no sure hit attacks (2 Sins, 3 Warriors, and also a Dervish) after about 2 minutes of constant criting and Shadow of Refuge spamming they all died within about 5 to 15 seconds of each other.

But of course after about another 2 minutes of running around and capping whada you know that EXACT same mob of players saw me again. The cried something along the lines of "WE'LL GET YOU THIS TIME KUR*ICK" replace the star with a D, "DIE NOOOBLET", and also something to profound to be posted on here =p. Well again I buffed up and spammed attack skills and again about 2 to 3 minutes later they were all dead, after each of their deaths they all screamed "HACKER", or "F OFF KURZ*ICK" (again same thing as before). Another thing I found to my amusement was one saying they were reporting me for hacking, but for now it doesn't seem that he did haha.

Anyway all in all the kurz one WHOOT and I got a good ROFL out of it.

EDIT: Now that I think about it, this really wasn't a hilarious build just a ROFL moment. Sorry for the off-topicness 0.o

A very annoying monk that came by would be the answer to that, I got to kill all of them after a friend came and occupied the monk long enough for me to kill the mob, as for the second time thats not really something I can answer 0.o I don't know why it took so long lol.
