September 2012 Promotions (Officers included)

Post  xblindmanx on 4/9/2012, 15:33

I just want to start off with a congratulations to the following members for achieving the rank of Knight. For those of you who don't know. Members who join Ragnarok are considered Soldiers. After 3 months of being committed to Ragnarok we promote those members to Knight. There is no real distinction between Soldier and Knight, but we do consider Knights to be the 'core' of Ragnarok and those who truly support Ragnarok.

Knight
Vampyses
Toranaga

Those of you who we recruited in this last BWE will be up for promotion next month to Knights Smile

I'd also like to throw in recently added guild members, so that people can become more aware of who is new and help them to feel at home.

Welcome to the good guys!


And now for the biggest announcement of this post: the newly promoted officer for Ragnarok. Let me start off by saying this was an incredibly hard choice. I had five applicants in total, but unfortunately we only need two at the moment. Everybody had excellent applications and showed some good qualities to be an officer. Of course everyone also showed some weaknesses in certain spots, but that was to be expected no one is perfect. I will say this, everyone was closely matched and I had trouble picking the following two officers. However, each of them seemed to capture the special something it takes to be an officer. Not saying the other applicants didn't as well, these guys just seemed to show it off a tad bit more.

At this time, I would like to formally promote Sivious (Osiath) and Leeroy F Jenkins (LeeroyFJenkins) to Captains of Ragnarok. You guys should be expecting a PM from me to set up a time to go over all of your duties and what not. For those of you who did not make it, I encourage you to apply again whenever I am seeking a third officer. You guys definitely showed some characteristics of a good officer.

lol well technically I have been going slow, my friends did the same as FTM. I sneezed and BAM level 80. Meanwhile I'm level 72 and chilling out in the 70~75 zone, throwing nades at undeads. It's fun.

Edit: And now it's 74 and a teeny bit to 75. See? I'm basically just going 2~3 levels a day while watching various series of drama/anime/cartoons at the same time lol. Right now I'm marathoning "Display Picture: The Final Windblower".

I hit 80 so I thought I'd give sPvP a try or two with my engineer.

I like my build, I took on three people alone, nearly downed two, tanked I don't know how many Pistol Whips and Hundred Blades (my friend, the thief doing the whipping said I tanked at least 5 complete Pistol Whips, I dunno if that's a big thing), and managed to hang on till the rest of the team got there to back me up Smile. All while lagging from upside down data packets being sent to my Aussie Netz.

Dueled a Ranger, 1v2(fucking pets) and it ended with me and the ranger on the floor downed, throwing poop at each other, and his pet chewing my face. My poop was stronger, killed him first, got Rally. ??? Profit.

All in an Engineer's day's work.

Also I love denying other Engineers, one placed a Big Ol' Bomb in front of me, I stopped right in front of the red line and filled him with lead Very Happy . Also walked through his Mine Field without setting a single one off. Good times.

If you tank anyone's 100B they are doing it wrong.

Well I dunno, what I do know is that Engineers have crazy damage mitigation, and condition mitigation. Three seconds of invulnerability anyone? Turn all conditions into boons anyone? Big Shieldy Knockback/daze? I could confuse a warrior and watch them 100B themselves to death (damage on skilling) while hitting me when I have retaliation (return all dealt damage) up as well.

Ranger got a skilled 6 second invulnerability to all incoming damage and can pull all conditions to their pet which they can then swap, Necro got a skill each for transferring all conditions to an enemy, consuming them to heal himself or convert them into boons. Can fo into his death shroud to become virtually invulnerable (meaning all damage goes to his life force, not his hp). Dunno about other classes, haven`t familiarized myself with them enough^^

Warrior has endure pain for 5 secs (can spec to make it 7s) and a 3 second channeled shield block skill. Guardian has a couple second invulnerability while recharging all virtues and all those shields. Thief becomes invulnerable to everything when he steals from warrior or uses blade storm. Not sure about Mesmer or ele.

Mesmer has a shitton of clones lol, and Ele has Mist Form.

Guardian also has a convert all conditions into boons as well.

It's all pretty balanced, and it's up to the player to make the difference. There shouldn't really be a "overpowered" OHKO skill, if you're raping people with 100B it's only cause the person you're playing against doesn't know how to deal with it, I still think it's best to play the way you feel comfortable, rather than go with Flavour of the Month builds. On the other hand, cause people think Engineers are crap, I get to have more fun being in a niche class Smile.

Ah no, the reason people get raped by my 100b is because my 3 utilities are knockdowns/snares. Only build that can counter me is one that is heavy condition removal. Which they then lack in damage, so you only see a build like that once in a blue moon. Of course that's just my Spvp build. PvE/WvW is all about the sword shield tank build. Rush into a group of people in WvW with endure pain on, "Fear Me!", Stomp the remainders, Shield Stance out. Smile

Well that's the thing, my Engineer's sPvP build IS heavy condition removal, all while still having good damage, hell even good crowd control. The fact I'm immune to all conditions when my HP is less than 25% means it's strangely harder and harder to kill me as my HP goes down. I guess other classes probably have something similar?

Today in sPvP I took down a good amount of Mesmers (bitchingly annoying I swear), Warriors (same old same ol'), Guardians (mostly straightforward except this one Guardian dude, who had some serious tankiness), and a few of the rest of 'em. My last round consisted of me running away from the whole other team, so they were occupied trying to kill me while the rest of the team captured points >_>, that wasn't fun at all actually.
