It always makes me go ._. when I see a warrior just uselessly standing around waiting for the Luxons to come to him. For the sake of cute, fluffy bunnies, do something! Go out there! Be a nuisance, go get a mine, stall a group of Luxons outside, harass the minion master or monk, something, ANYTHING. When I play a mesmer or air ele, I often make suicide runs on a mine -- I'll die taking it, but at least the Luxons will have to spend another minute getting it back while I respawn inside and take care of some warriors there.Originally Posted by Servant of Kali
Yup. The biggest mistake the Kurzicks make (over and over and over again ) is thinking this is PvP. It's not, not entirely. As a Kurzick, I kill many more NPCs than actual players -- the Luxon longbows at the mines being the prime example -- and I run amber like my life depends on it.That's so true, and it's one of the main reasons why playing as Kurzick is difficult.
:( It makes me sad to hear that, but I completely understand how you feel. It's just no fun finally getting into a match and seeing those familiar names on your party window. I don't like leaving, but I will leave now and re-enter; that way, I'll get a new group and the leechers are stuck in the old match waiting for the Luxons to kill Gunther.and along with leechers i have no intention to play Aspenwood for the time being. It's sad because the map is fun, but leechers make it unplayable.
I've never seen a smite monk in FA that posed any kind of serious threat. Also hilariously easy to kill. All builds are not created equal, and if you play a healer/protector/bonder, at least you'll be more useful.Originally Posted by bobbank
I've had people yell at me because I didn't heal them. Um, guys, I'm trying to keep that there ele alive so the gate doesn't fall. Yeah, dying sucks, especially if you're running amber, but I prioritize the NPCs over you. Deal.You know what the consequence of a player dying is? They instantly respawn with full health and full energy. ITS NOT A BIG DEAL.
Take it to the gatekeepers if a gate is down (Radik = Orange, Poletski = Purple. They'll fix gates, starting with the inner gate), otherwise, it can go to Gunther. Though I sometimes will wait with amber near a gatekeeper if I think a gate will go down in the next twenty seconds or so, and I will ALWAYS wait with amber next to a gatekeeper if there's only one green gate guard alive (the green gate is guarded by two mesmers, an ele and the Juggernaut). Getting the green gate back up as soon as it goes down buys you another couple of minutes.Originally Posted by Djinn Effer
I'm not sure if this is intended behavior, but it is terribly annoying at times. One time, neither gatekeeper would take amber because a frikkin' PET was still in the room. Its owner had died and not yet respawned.Originally Posted by bobbank
Last night, I finally went out and capped Life Barrier on my monk so I could give bonding a whirl. It's an exceptionally strong build (except against eeeeevil necros :P) that will increase the Kurzick chances at winning dramatically. It was also a lot of fun and the abuse hurled at me and my fellow guildie bonder in local was an extra bonus :D
