After doing some thinking... and many people saying to never bring a ranger spirit into AB... why? Cause they can affect people on both sides of the game.
so i got to thinking... what could be the use, if any, of bringing in Spirits in AB. Surely everyone has noticed the reaction of people who see "Edge of Extinction" pop up on the screen....
So what professions are not affected by spirits in GW? Mostly i would say the Rit and the Ranger. So, after much deliberation my friends and i got together on this;
1 - Spirit Ranger (R/Rt)
1 - Spirit Spammer Rit (Rt/R)
1 - Marksman Ranger (R/Rt)
1 - Trapper Ranger (R/Rt)
Basically we were losing the Grenz at the time (as Kurzicks this was a horrible feeling). So we decided to create a swamp to help our fellow AB team. As everyone knows, if the Luxons control the points in front of the Kurzick base, it is almost impossible to win back the map. So we started from there creating our swampland which gave our team a buffer zone from which they could leave the base.
The games that we played this our team won, so maybe we helped, maybe we didn't. But we did control the areas that we Swamped (basically spread out over 2-3 shrines and most of us just individually holding a part of the map ourselves) and no-one dared enter and if they did, they certainly died very fast.
Here is what we had set up at one point;
Edge of Extinction
We all had longbows and 3 of us were using either poison or ignite arrows, etc etc.
Let me just say, i should have taken some screenies as it looked like a very creepy ghostlike swamp.
EDIT: i was thinking that maybe a Conditions Necro might have been useful here....
