  • meta shifts away from pure 8v8 builds
  • New BA turret cannot compare to old flail or glass arrow turrets in terms of DPS making this a less effective 8v8 build

This build had been designed for the following use:

This build was in the category great before being archived.

Use 2 Rangers to pump damage.

Shock Axe Edit

<pvxbig> [build prof=warri/elemen axema=12+1+1 streng=12+1 air=3][Evisc][Body Blow][Disrupting Chop][Bull's Strike][Shock][frenzy][Rush][resurrection signet][/build] </pvxbig>

Equipment Edit

  • Zealous/Vampiric Axe of Fortitude
  • Ebon Axe of Fortitude
  • Furious Spear of Fortitude
  • -2/+30 Strength Shield (While in Stance)
  • +5 AR/+30 Strength Shield (Elemental; can swap depending)
  • -20% Crippled Duration Strength Shield of Fortitude
  • -20% Blind Duration Strength Shield of Fortitude
  • Example Template Code: Pk5hbOvjjkaikpW9rIhpI90QjpIRBhipITRhg5ODrxhpIJL


  • Stonefist Insignia Absolutely necessary.
  • Mostly Vitae suggested; some attune if you use Shock other than in conjunction with Bull's.
  • Some use Sentinel's on Chest (not suggested but possible).
  • Clarity/Restoration

Usage Edit

  • Upon entering combat, carefully select a target and begin auto-attacking to build up adrenaline (Use a Furious Spear/Bow or a Wand to gain adrenaline when you can't get too close).
  • Knock Down moving foes with Bull's Strike.
  • Disrupt and knock down targets with Shock or create a knockdown-lock with Bull's Strike.
  • Call targets and spike with Eviscerate and Body Blow (or Executioner's Strike.)
  • Body Blow can also function as a second Deep Wound attack skill if your target is affected by Cracked Armor.
  • Use Frenzy to spike faster and/or increase the amount of pressure you're putting out. A 33% attack speed buff roughly equates to a 50% increase in damage output.
  • Use Rush to chase kiting foes, cancel Frenzy, or as a simple movement speed buff.
  • Use Disrupting Chop at opportune moments to interrupt and disable skills (for example, use it as a Monk recovers from a knockdown).
  • Swap to appropriate weapon sets as necessary (Ebon when attacking another Warrior, etc.)
  • Resurrect allies when necessary.

Jatt Kittenstomper Edit

Equipment Edit

  • Survivor's or Sentinel's Insignias with Stonefist on gloves, helmet, or boots.
  • Vampiric Hammer, Elemental, and Furious Hammers of Fortitude.
  • A defensive set with spear + shield. Spear should have +30 health and a furious mod (you'll often want to be in this set to build adren). Keep an assortment of shields in your inventory (all the damage types, cripple reduction, blind reduction)
  • Keep a longbow in your inventory to build adrenaline from afar
  • Extra runes of choice (clarity/restoration/ect).

Usage Edit

Cripshot Edit

<pvxbig> [build prof=ranger/monk experti=12+1+1 marksman=9+1 wilderne=9+1 protec=3][Crippling Shot][distracting shot][savage shot][apply poison][Lightning Reflexes][natural stride][mending touch][resurrection signet][/build]

Equipment Edit

  • Poisonous Recurve Bow (15^50) of Fortitude.
  • Crippling Recurve Bow (15^50) of Fortitude.
  • Crippling Longbow (15^50) of Fortitude.
  • Defensive Shield set with Shields vs X Damage.
  • Death Set.
  • Full Survivor's/Scout's Armor with a Rune of Sup Vigor.

Usage Edit

  • Maintain Apply Poison, use Natural Stride to avoid interruption.
  • Spread Poison for pressure.
  • Cripple targets like Warriors to ease pressure, or targets on spikes to assist your Warriors. Cripple priority targets like Flaggers.
  • Use your interrupts to provide Disruption, bear in mind the effects of Distracting Shot and Savage Shot.
  • Use Lightning Reflexes as a blocking stance and a skill to rapidly spread Poison.
  • Use Natural Stride for blocking and an IMS.
  • Remove conditions from yourself with Antidote Signet.
  • If necessary, split offensively to gank NPC's and hastle the enemy flaggers. Split defensively to wipe opposing splits.
  • When the opposing flagger is on his way out of the base, push forward to snare/hastle it, you will most likely get fallen on so call this tactic and use your stances to stay alive, this can be risky but can also help push for a morale boost.
