I added warrior but that makes the last line wrong. I don't think that is even true — Skuld 09:55, 15 October 2006 (CDT)

I think your definition is still a little broad. In pve, for example, warriors are seen more as tanks than as damage dealers, whereas in pvp it's the opposite. Nuking is damage in an area (I hope so; I need to check my definitions) so warriors can't really be called nukers. --Ufelder 10:22, 15 October 2006 (CDT)

Nuking doesn't imply AoE. —Tanaric 10:36, 15 October 2006 (CDT)
The wiki has a definition of nuke. --Ufelder 10:42, 15 October 2006 (CDT)

As for pvp, that's where the definition becomes blurred. If damage dealers are nukers--following the article--what does that make spikers? I think the definition of spiker and nuker is sufficiently clear, so drawing a simple connection between a damage dealer and a nuker is probably not the best. --Ufelder 10:50, 15 October 2006 (CDT)

Fair enough. I don't play Guild Wars, so I was basing my writeup on accepted MMORPG standards across the board. I didn't realize that Guild Wars slang, in this respect, was so divergant. Fix the article as you see fit. —Tanaric 11:14, 15 October 2006 (CDT)
Someone ever heard of 100b warriors? Although Elementalists and Necromancer can 'nuke' a lot, 100b can too, and are often also called 'damage' dealers. Not only PvP --Character-Verdecandeijas Jor.png Jorre22225 17:46, 17 November 2011 (UTC)
