Almost all of your attacks will activate at 1/2 or 3/4 second speed. Aura of Holy Might raises your Attack Rating not your attack damage percent and is extremely effective with little Kurzick/Luxon rank. The same goes for Save Yourselves. Teutonic 13:49, 30 January 2008 (EST)


mystic regen+aura+endurance+vital=yes you have the energy to cast, but not before the battle, and therefore you'll be casting while you should be hitting. cute concept, but lose mystic regen, its a fuckign warrior.Dark0805sig2.PNG 10:06, 1 February 2008 (EST)

I opened the talk page and had no idea what you were talking about, checked the history and found two idiots screwing with skills. Please look at it again and give me any advice you can. Teutonic 10:56, 1 February 2008 (EST)

Drop Aura of Holy Might and use Pious Assault, because that is WIN! Rickyvantof 14:57, 4 February 2008 (EST)

10e skills will lower your attack speed and force you to drop AoHM which is incedibly good. "Contrary to the description, the stated percentage increase is actually added to the user's damage rating. For example, at title rank 5, rather than increasing damage by 25%, it raises damage rating by 25, effectively increasing damage by 54%. For details, see the discussion page and the article on damage calculation." Two normal hits under AoHM will probably outdamage Deep Wound and won't remove any protective enchantments placed on you. Also, AoHM changes your damage to Holy Damage. Teutonic 23:39, 4 February 2008 (EST)

How can you out-damage Deep Wound? It's a condition! Pious Assault has 1/2 activation and the 10e hardly matters. Pious Assault in main bar, AoHM in variants, once again. Rickyvantof 01:17, 5 February 2008 (EST)
Deep Wound essentially adds +100 damage to one attack. Aura of Holy Might adds ~35 damage to each attack. Teutonic 13:18, 6 February 2008 (EST)

Furious Scythe

I've been running this in PvE lately, and I found a Zealous mod isn't really needed, cause when you're in need of energy you just auto attack once or twice (In PvE the 3 extra seconds don't really matter) which is why I recommend a Furious Scythe, to power up "SY!" even faster. Rickyvantof 08:16, 5 February 2008 (EST)

Furious is very very bad. If you don't want to use Zealous, use Vamp or something.
It's not very very bad. It's not as useful on a scythe, cause there are no Adrenaline based dervish skills. But it could be useful to maintain "SY!" Rickyvantof 17:15, 10 February 2008 (EST)

It adds one adrenaline 10% of the time. This will add up to an extra "SY!" after 80 hits. Zealous or vampiric will add several hundred damage.Teutonic 18:55, 10 February 2008 (EST)

It seems to proc more than just 10% of the time. Back before the For Great Justice buff I had a Furious sword and Dragon Slash. I only used it for about a week, but in that time, twice it procced four times in a row with Dragon Slash, and it regularly procced 2-3 times in a row. 00:33, 12 February 2008 (EST)

It does do it more than 10% of the time because if you are attacking 3 ppl then it will add up to 30% (if you are using a scythe). Though I must say that I still prefer the vamp or zealous mod.JORLZ36181 15:55, 31 March 2008 (EDT)

That's your imagination. Teutonic 07:59, 12 February 2008 (EST)

I have to go to class righ tnow but around 4 this afternoon i'll post back here.--Dark0805(Rant/Contributions) 12:58, 12 February 2008 (EST)
10% chance with 3 enemies (ASSUMING YOU HIT ALL 3) =
0.9^3 of no extra adr = 72.9% change of 3 adr
3(0.9^2)*0.1 = 24.3% chance of 4 adr
3(0.1^2)*0.9 = 2.7% chance of 5 adr
and 0.1% chance of 6 adr
Thus - a scythe can therefore be the most logical weapon to use furious on!
BUT this is looking at it per attack. If there's one enemy, then per attack it's efficiency drops again - more so since it's slow and you're not charging adr skills as fast as they can. 15:57, 31 July 2008 (EDT) Beomagi

Perfect Scythe and Energy Management

I've got an idea. With this idea you can take a perfect scythe and still have loads of energy management. This at the cost of not having a spike skill, but having more dammage. <pvxbig> [build prof=W/D Strength=12+1+1 Scythe_Mastery=12][Warrior's Endurance][Zealous Sweep][Lyssa's Assault][Wild Blow][Aura of Holy Might]["Save Yourselves!"][Lion's Comfort][Sunspear Rebirth Signet][/build] </pvxbig>Thonyonline 14:01, 3 May 2008 (GMT)

That's too much energy management, and the loss of DPS isn't worth it. Aura of Holy Might is the only skill you'd actually have to pay for, and even that shouldn't be a problem with Warrior's Endurance on the bar. -Mike 08:22, 3 May 2008 (EDT)

Oh, and high % increased dmg. -- Nature Sig Pic.JPGNature 01:43, 8 August 2008 (EDT)
Single target damage increase. And the bonus from AoHM is probably 2/3 as high (the numbers aren't right) but deals the extra damage to a possible 3 foes. ــмıкεнaшк 09:47, 8 August 2008 (EDT)
Removed Asuran Scan from variants(its on the main bar) also removed the note "stance removal as a counter" Warriors Endurance isn't a stance anymore, and Club of a Thousand Bears isn't AoE KD on a Scythe Correct?

fast activating attack skills are only good like, Hard hiting attack skill + quick activating dmg attack example: Evis+executioners+agonizing chop(1sec)

when u try spamming them you really dont attack as fast as u might think when considering after cast. in fact u might actually attack slower since it will interupt a regular attack to accomplish the quick cast one.--JRyan 09:31, 1 October 2008 (EDT)

Ur doin it rong. Regular auto attack -> fast attack. Repeat cycle. Increase attacks per second with your scythe which equals big dommoge. - Misery Is Friendly Misery Dog obaby.gif 09:32, 1 October 2008 (EDT)

Suggestions for Main skillbar

Wild Blow and Distracting Blow can be traded out for an IMS (Sprint, Enraging Charge, Pious Haste, w/e), Lion's Comfort or some other attack skills, and Flail can be traded out for Burst of Aggression. Body Blow could also be nice. ــѕт.мıкε 01:38, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Tbh, it looks like a pretty good Hero frontliner. Separate build or edit this page? ــѕт.мıкε 19:39, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

A comparison with critscythe

Which has more potential damage? 19:50, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

I'd say Critscythe, because it takes an IAS on the main bar. Crits deal add more than armor penetration, but Power Attack and Protector's Strike compensate for that loss. If you do take an IAS (Flail) on this Warrior's bar, I'd say they're both pretty even, but Critscythes still get DW (Wounding Strike or Reaper's Sweep).
This can use Stonefist Insignias for more awesome KDs with Great Dwarf Weapon, though. XP ــѕт.мıкε 20:47, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
Certainly tougher PvE monsters have lots of armour, though, so Strength helps a lot. Ofc, an IAS will probably make the biggest difference. 21:55, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
Well, against against 80 armor targets (and under, of course), Critical Strikes (with Way of the Master) will average about 4 more damage per auto-attack than Strength, but the difference diminishes after 100 armor and up, where they even out, and Strength deals 1 more damage on average.
So, this (with an IAS) would actually deal more than the Critscythe (because of Power Attack and Protector's Strike), but the Critscythe doesn't need to use its Elite to fuel its attack skills, and can take a DW Elite (which results in 100 damage when it's used against a foe). Then again, this can also bring "Save Yourselves!", which is insanely helpful.
Tbh, they're both amazing. XD ــѕт.мıкε 22:27, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Hero Bar

Seeing as the build I submitted was Welled, we should discuss adding one (to variants, as I did, but was reverted), or making the main bar hero-friendly. ــѕт.мıкε 01:27, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

You really don't need to discuss it. At the bottom put a collapsible skill bar with the optimal skills for a hero. 01:29, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Proposed Change to hero build

It is known that heroes do not use flail unless the target is knocked down. For more general usability, flail should be changed for burst of aggression on the hero bar.
