gg removing the annoying aftercasts. no gg not nerfing R/Ds... (probably because the guys from ZoS want to farm some fame with it @@) 20:37, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

oh yeah and they nerfed Shields up... cause rspike wasn't all the rage....—JediRogue 21:22, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
Oh yeah didn't know pious was a nerf to the r/ds... never ran it cause its like the new thumpway —JediRogue 21:23, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Siphon Speed... QQ. Love the Wail of Doom buff(/nerf?), though. -Shinoda 21:31, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Wail of Doom got a buff, IMO. Now it's good for shutting down a healer during a spike or whatever.--DNA 22:16, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
I hope they don't remove that Steal-Monster-skills bug, that would be fun for mesmers in PvE. Take em out of PvP, I don't mind.. But at least I like playing with whacky builds on mesmer, and I would *LOVE* to bite back at those cursed dinosaurs. Kemal 23:22, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Stupid nerf of Mystic Regen and Flame Djinn's Haste! --UlmoSan 23:25, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Not at all, at least not for mystic regeneration. It's still fine. It was imba before. Mr. Mango 00:08, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

omg they are killing this game! mystic regen is all but removed from the game, flame djinn is slow and short, and shroud of silence doesnt even deserve to be an elite skill anymore -.- 03:30, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

No. Mystic Regen is still useful, if you think otherwise, you're a tool. Flame Djinn's Haste is now going to be used for what it was meant: Damage + speed boost, instead of just a speed boost that never ends. And have you ever played as a monk and had an assassin with Shroud of Silence attacking you? Even when i play Derv in RA, SoS is pretty much GG if they have a good attack chain.

Assassins nerfed... again?[edit source]

The only profession which didn't get any kind of positive update, even if you look at Siphon Speed now... it still has 15/30 sec conditional/unconditional recharge and descreased duration. D: Assassin's Promise, anyone? J Striker 05:59, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Assassin's Promise is already borderline overpowered. XD Felix Omni Signature.png 12:35, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Frog Staff?[edit source]

I'd really like to know if this staff(?) is available either before, or now with this latest update. Anyone know? 09:10, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Haven't come across it yet, but you never know. Probably Water Magic, maybe mesmer. Felix Omni Signature.png 09:12, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
Been looking for it for ages, looked at heaps of "green weapon" images, but none ever looked similar to this. Wasn't sure if all the winner entries of that contest actually meant there was going to be an item in the game modeled on it, but thought that was the whole point? Anyways, hope this means it will be now. 09:16, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
A thought occurred to me. Maybe they stuck it in that frog dungeon in Asura territory. Felix Omni Signature.png 09:36, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

New Weapons[edit source]

What new weapons? :p Frantic 00:53, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

I've only seen an axe and the Demonic Aegis. Neither of which are fantastic, but the axe is alright.--DNA 01:34, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
Celestial Compass here celestialcompasshealxu2.jpg pic of the axe Serpentine ReaverFrantic 01:57, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
Cant someone check the Tournament rewards under fancy weapons? I personally cant because I havent unlocked that many normal skin weapons yet, but maybe someone can to check what the new ones are, assuming these new skins can be unlocked through Reward points :)Frantic 02:09, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
Anyone seen these weapons? Especially the [Bow]. Naked lady bow? Me want!--DNA 03:40, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
SoS was pretty much GG, if they didn't already have Guardian or Veil on them. Shroud of Silence is inferior to Wail of Doom, Blackout and now, any form of knockdown. Oh, and I'm pretty sure I've already seen that bow, even before the update, or something that looked like it, anyway. Some female ranger wielded it with her Druid Armor, pretty nice combo -Mike 03:44, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
Are you sure it wasn't This?--DNA 03:52, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
Probably was, but that bow from the design-a-weapon contest looks a little weird. lol -Mike 03:58, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
Anyone know if any of these weapons dropped as a non-inscriptable variant? So if they dropped in Tyria or Cantha? Frantic 15:01, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Wounding Strike[edit source]

Go go Faithful Intervention? Chilos

FI and WS weren't useful before?--DNA 00:11, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
WS caused bleeding when enemys hp was over 50%, deep wound under 50%. Now it causes deep wound when enchanted, FI is enchantment and it doesn't run out except if ur hp gets low. Now you don't need to get enemy hp under 50% to deep wound him. Chilos
That's... not correct. Felix Omni Signature.png 18:26, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
He's thinking of Reaper's Sweep Zefir 02:49, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
Whoops I messed up those >< *goes to corner* Chilos

Shroud of Silence Nerf[edit source]

Well It"s annoying that A are ALWAYS nerfed to the extreme but here it is a complete non sense.... 3 sec of SS? It became a complete junk....
