On the rare occasions I'll do PvE I'm not into lamerness, all the variants of ursanway, obsidian tanks and similiar boring stuff.

It's wierd to say it as I will always bring sabway necs, an imbagon and a barrager but I'm not into stereotype builds, that is to say I can't stand Ele Nukers, Eles in general, Sin spamming SoI mesmers, PvE mesmers spamming any sort of PvE skill, Channelling Rits, Tactigons and stuff like that. I'm not saying these builds aren't good/working, the point I'm trying to make is that there are attributes that CAN actually make decent builds even though they got nerfed very hard or were never popular.

This is the team build i usually use in PvE when playing with my friends, I like to call it "balanced" (what did you expect?).

It uses the imbaness of an imbagon, a toolbox SY barrager, modified sabway necros and an order dervish to easily conquer any areas with just two players.

  • When using the communing Rit I rarely switch in Enfeebling Blood instead of Weaken Armor. I'm supposed to do it every time but I always forget.
