    @Ali Pretty sure pets run the same speed

    They run 20% faster.

    Also eleptitude for gold.

  4. @Luv R/P X2, dual apply+enraged strike and deep wound
    SoS Necro
    PB Mes
    E/D Mindburn Fire Ele

    man that sounds brutal as fk

  5. About pets, I believe someone said once that rollerbeetles have an IAS, unlike other pets.

    Anyways, playing without frontline is always risky. Spears can be dodged, having SG will be extra effective, deep wounds are less reliable and you can't really train people down with that build I reckon. But I guess with some big plays on rupts it could work, since the pressure should be big ofcourse.

    This build is more condition dependant, so you might be screwed when you are playing against a flesh wound paragon, while with RNE you could push/split your ranger and still do pressure.

    Yeah the beetle attacks faster. It's the most OP pet tbh
    As for no frontline, you could run a derv instead of one of the R/Ps, I guess. The only problem would be that they could shutdown your poison.
    Spear dodging shouldn't be a problem,or at least less than usually thanks to the map effect.
    Flesh wound para would be some kind of counter I suppose although builds with a para are typically terrible vs split so you could just split them around with the E/D.

    Laceration on the RP seems pretty solid

    I just feel like a ranger is not that good on this map since noone runs rits anymore and against a build like this with a SoS and a mystic regen fire ele there's absolutely no way the ranger can do any solo flag pushing action. Or even any split action at all matter of fact

    Adding Apply Poison would double Lynie's dps.

    Why do you have Rending Aura in that build, doesn't make any sense. Just take Wearying Strike. Also, I just discovered a bug that allows Apply Poison to active instantly while in Avatar form, so I will be playing this build now.

  11. With a wastrel's mesmer around pets become "missiles" spreading fairly high armor ignoring AoE damage...
    And wastrel's mesmers are rather popular.

  14. I think a ton of builds are viable if people are just running standard 8v8 builds or solo split builds. What stops a lot of builds from being viable is

    1. Wastrels mesmers
    2. Zurrie Dervs
    3. Dual Ele splits and/or 2-2-1 splits

    If you want to be able to check all three of these boxes, there's just not very many builds you can run. Since people aren't running these builds as often anymore and/or aren't good at them, degen pressure/axe warriors/paragons are a lot more viable.

    Many of the builds (outside of maybe hex pressures) were still viable despite the above, but were much harder to win with as any mistake was far, far easier for the other team to punish if they had those three things.

  20. Which attributes do you use for a P/W Flesh Wound Paragon? And why?

  21. I either run 12-9-9(tac)-3(com)-1 (12-9-8-5-3-2 with a q7 shield) or 12-9-5(tac)-8(com)-2. The first variant gives +5 armor and +1 adrenaline, so you have 2x ~25% damage reduction; the second variant gives 2x ~19% damage reduction. With higher command you have a better chance on critical hits on your spikes which can add quite some damage with 3 of you (warrior, ranger, paragon) on the spike target and will of course give our second frontliner the chance to deal more damage on some other target, too. The chance for the second one is 15 percentage points higher (which is roughly 33% higher than for the first variant resulting in a total bonus chance of 57%).

    Which one I take depends on which shields I already have in my inventory as I'm pretty lazy. Both variants are legit. I guess the command variant is the better choice in case you don't have some pervert backline that uses tinder instead of prots ... :P
    (sorry for that punch, dude)
