Farming Builds

People always askh, "Where are the builds that farm _ _ _ _ _ I don't see any?" Well, i'd gladly sort the farming builds into certain locations. OK?--FireFire Tock SigPic 2.jpgTock 23:03, 7 May 2008 (EDT)

There are a lot of locations. It would better if we'd set some criteria, like "is the build able to farm foes with: enchantment removal, interrupt, degen, life stealing, block, etc." Still, it would be hard to implent. ~ ĐONT*TALK 00:58, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
Well know most farming builds have some sort of section devoted to what's farm able with the build...~PheNaxKian (T/c) Phenaxkian sig phoenix.jpg 14:29, 8 May 2008 (EDT)
The best way to do this will probably be to have a good naming policy for farming builds. It should include area or something like "mob farmer" and the method of farming. As most builds have a good name, the people who complain are just stupid. --- Monk-icon-Ressmonkey.JPG Ressmonkey (talk) 15:44, 8 May 2008 (EDT)

How can i move a build from my user page to testing builds(btw its a pve farm build)My Name Is Fuz 20:47, 15 May 2008 (EDT)

If you're talking about this build, then all you need to do is add {{Untested-Testing|farming}} to the top. BUT if you'd like to get input from other users on it, use {{Untested-Trial|farming}} instead. The "Testing" one means it's open for people to rate it, while "Trial" means that the author would like some input. See this for more details. ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(sysop) 21:09, 15 May 2008 (EDT)

It has to be there. Wikis work by "www.blah.blarg/Wiki/Namespace:Article name" (namespace being the Build bit) i can't explain why but it's needed.~PheNaxKian (T/c) Phenaxkian sig phoenix.jpg 13:40, 18 May 2008 (EDT)
Technically, there is a main namespace without a prefix. However, we need build pages to have their own namespace. For example, the engine has to know which pages can be rated, which pages to pick a 'Random Build' from and so on. – HHHIPPO ‹sysop› 17:24, 18 May 2008 (EDT)

If it's a link to an old name of a build that was moved, change it to point to the right place. If the build was just deleted, you can use {{DeletedLink|Build:Test}} or {{DeletedLink|Build:Test|Blah}} which shows up like this: [[Build:Test]] or [[Blah]] and links to the deletion log if the page doesn't exist and is just a normal link if the page does exist. ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(sysop) 15:36, 22 May 2008 (EDT)

Templates + sign

I noticed that template variables cannot handle ~~~ or ~~~~, only ~~~~~ which is the timestamp. Is it default for wikies or is it possible to make it accept signatures somehow? ~ ĐONT*TALK 14:01, 27 May 2008 (EDT)

They do handle ~~~ and the others. Actually, the ~~~'s are expanded already when saving the page, while the template is called later when viewing the page.

the point is, people can better use a checkbox, they can say this is innovative-check the boix. This isn't leave it unchecked. Where as currently you have to think how innovative something is, so instead of just yes/no you have to say it's around "there", and the point is we want to encourage people to be innovative, so the idea as that when we introduced the check box, we'd also introduce a new "innovative builds" section. ~PheNaxKian (T/c) Phenaxkian sig phoenix.jpg 14:09, 28 June 2008 (EDT)

No, which is the beauty of it. If there was one, then everyone would have that build. Since specific builds/professions are for specific areas, Anet makes people use different tactics to farm.

i hope the structure of gw2 is such that this website becomes obsolete.

the only good aspect of this site is for pve, because the pve in guild wars sucks, and is boring; too repetitive, so instead of wasting time figuring out what works you can just look it up, but...

...but pvp is fun. pvp is competitive. and i'm not gonna explain it to a bunch of people who steal builds and copy and paste builds off of a website because you don't know what pvp is all about; what the fun is, the excitement.

you shouldn't even be able to see what skills other people use.

Let's break this apart.
"this website sucks."
I agree 100%.

"everyone knows it takes away from the value and fun of an otherwise good game."
There's no value to be taken from a dead game with an already established meta.

"the pre-made builds were good enough. go back to that."
The pre-made builds were mediocre during Prophecies, when shit such as the Fi-Boon Healer was considered acceptable.

"have respect for the players and the game in general: delete this website."
Most players who play the game realize that less and less people do play it. Anything, and I mean anything,

"guildwiki was right to delete their builds section."
Guildwiki deleted their builds section because they couldn't manage the influx of terrible builds.

"do developpers watch what people post to decide what to nerf? that is so lame."
No. Izzy has a private forum where people Tommy, Ensign, and other notables post. You are not notable. You probably aren't even in a r1000 guild, so, you probably wouldn't know much about PvP and other various, related topics.

"this website is the bane of guild wars."
The bane of Guild Wars is Arenanet itself. Even top players use this website as a starting point for builds they are unfamiliar with: the first step to more research that ultimately leads to observing the build being played in observation mode- just like how we found it. This leads to counters or customizing a bar that ultimately leads to a new meta.

"i hope the structure of gw2 is such that this website becomes obsolete."
Each to his own, but if you want to completely eradicate individuality just because of a single site, you're a retard. That's O.K. though, because I already assumed that.

"the only good aspect of this site is for pve, because the pve in guild wars sucks, and is boring; too repetitive, so instead of wasting time figuring out what works you can just look it up, but..."
Anything works in PvE.

"...but pvp is fun. pvp is competitive. and i'm not gonna explain it to a bunch of people who steal builds and copy and paste builds off of a website because you don't know what pvp is all about; what the fun is, the excitement." The excitement is beating people better than you. It's more exciting to fight people with the same exact build and ripping them a new one because it proves you are better than they are. Build Wars has been taken out of the picture and replaced with the new and exciting game of complete skill. However, Build Wars is also a fine component of Guild Wars and the meta/counter->meta/counter->... mechanism is one that works wonderfully. However, I'm forgetting one item- the thing that makes PvP unpredictable is not the builds being used or the map being played but the players themselves. Player skill is the make-or-break factor in PvP. The bars are more or less inconsequential.

"you shouldn't even be able to see what skills other people use."
You shouldn't be allowed to breathe.

"NCSoft fails."
That's actually very true. They should have put more support behind TR and marketed it better. Also, prop guns took months to fix, hence why I cancelled. Also, Auto Assault should be released to the public.

And that's my response. —ǥrɩɳsɧƴɖɩđđɭɘş Grinshpon blinky cake.gif 08:17, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

As a company, it's generally a bad move to associate yourself with other entities that have an image outside your control. If Anet linked people to fansites with advertisements outside their control then they're opening themselves up to a big risk. Imagine if one of their fansites picked up a porn site as their sponsor; the legal trouble they'd get for leading young players to that site would be epic. - PANIC!

Gringshop (or whatever): You say, and rightly so, that the "build wars" is (pretty much) over, because of an "already established meta." I will rephrase what I said, and tell you that I appreciate you actually taking to heart what I said. What I mean is that certain areas in this site are lacking understanding. Although this website has decent warrior and monk builds, certain other areas use super-simplistic builds, that, while OK for beginners, do not show the same quality as for this site's warrior builds. There are many, many skills, as you've said, involved in being good at any particular class or role in the game. And, in my opinion, a great many of the builds that are called "great" on this website are sub-par mediocre builds that seem to simply be rated great because the players that rate them don't have skills and because those builds are so SIMPLE to play, but at the cost of effectiveness (and by the way, the rank of the guild I started and own is around 650, to actually respect your "request" for credentials).

Besides that, if a build is posted that is actually fairly complicated to play, but has a HUGE gap in effectiveness IF PLAYED WITH SKILL, the community will FLAME the poster relentlessly until he either flames back (and gets banned by one of the many seemingly prejudiced admins) or leaves, leaving this site without further builds.

That trait of this website has some serious flaws to it that should be obvious to anyone with IQ > 110, which I will leave unnamed out of respect.

(about not being able to see other people's skills - whatever you want to think is fine - it's not worth arguing over) 22:49, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

Pretty much every build has a huge difference in effectiveness when run by a noob and when run by a skilled player (the only exceptions that I can think of are Ursan and maybe touch ranger). Which is why we have build masters. ¬ Wizårdbõÿ777(sysop) 00:46, 24 July 2008 (EDT)
Most of the builds that are great are ripped from obs mode but the rest I can't argue with. —ǥrɩɳsɧƴɖɩđđɭɘş Grinshpon blinky cake.gif 07:57, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

Skill Descriptions

A while ago i posed asking why the hover over skill descriptions on build pages were not updated. I found out that the info for those come from gw shack and they have not updated. Well... there have been 2 updates now and gw shack hasn't updated either of them, even for the one back in july. Maybe we should figure out a way to make our own hover descriptions and keep them updated, seeing as gw shack refuses to update... --Bim sig.PNGBim (talk|contribs) 13:23, 10 August 2008 (EDT)

Due to the last update (7 august) a lot of skills have changed, but description showed is the old. An update would be desiderable to see new description in the builds. ty

While i'm sure your intentions are good, somewhere a few of us have disscuseed it, and figured that it'd only be possiable for a selectg few (probably BM's and admins unless we make another User group) that could edit it, to prevent vandalism (it would be risky to let anyone edit it because it's used on just about every page if you think about it..) ~PheNaxKian (T/c) Phenaxkian sig phoenix.jpg 14:27, 18 August 2008 (EDT)

Actually, it's Gcardinal who's working on the skill database. I have many other small things on my list and hope to finish the search engine soon. If you see me talk about a database, that's the main wiki database (which needs some maintenance that you won't notice unless it's not done), not the skill database. I don't know how far gc is with that, but I guess he would say so if there was some jobs that can be distributed. – HHHIPPO ‹sysop› 17:01, 18 August 2008 (EDT)
