[Fissure of Woe] 7 Paragon Team - Normal Mode

  • This is a team build I made for some fun and also a challenge, if you think the skills are weird it's because they are but each one is there for a reason; this is by no means a "meta" team build, if you expect whole mobs to just explode for you then run a shit-ton of mesmers :)


    Damage is done through barbs, crits, buffs, physical spear attacks, daze and deep wound conditions to vaporize spellcaster foes; your mileage will vary depending on how good/bad you are as a DPS.


    If you want to bring a couple friends just take out the #6 and #7 spear mastery paragons; these are your DPS/shutdown but can be swapped out for human DPS/shutdown if needed.


    This area has a lot of empathy and spiteful spirit which really tests the team; I wouldn't usually use a conset for Normal Mode.


    **UPDATE**

    There were new elite skills and items released for Guild Wars on its 15th Anniversary, if you run this hero team with YOU playing as a ranger I recommend running the new elite skill "Together As One" instead of Expert's Dexterity.

    I will link a preferred build R/A below:

  • Hi,

    I can really recommend these old videos.


    https://www.youtube.com/user/loulouph0/videos


    They are on german but this guy was one of the most influencial Paragon Player in the past (for me at least)

    There are some nice Paraway builds on old wartower (german gwguru xD )


    https://archiv.wartower.de/forum/showthread.php?t=873656


    Even some Heroparaways can be found there:

    https://archiv.wartower.de/for…read.php?t=473816&page=11


    Since Paragon didnT change much these builds are kinda up to date.

    Have a look and GL ;)

  • Well done I am thinking about paraway with friend for general pve :). Maybe give it another try playing para :D?


    Thank you, Paragon is fun to play and you can get some really nice damage out of the class if you tweak a hero team (Splinter -/+ Strength of Honour) ;
    this specific FoW Paragon-way team got me through Nightfall in normal mode with no fuss, I've done some vanquish also with consets but of course it's not as safe as say "BiP-support" with plenty of mesmers, it's just fun to push the gw skill system to see what is possible (at least for me).

    If you decide to run Paragon as DPS I'd recommend one of my favourite builds:

    [PA TPIY Dagger Spam;OQek0xm2phqENJQ4bpDDDzBj9mFG]
    [build=OQek0xm2phqENJQ4bpDDDzBj9mFG]

    x5 Centurion Insignia
    Sup Leadership
    Sup Vigor
    Major Motivation
    Minor Command
    Vitae Rune

    Zealous, +5e, +30hp Daggers (customized)

    If you haven't yet tried Bow, Sword, or Soldiers Imbagon I have a few builds I like to run for them also.



    Thanks mate I appreciate it; I'll take a look and do some researching, It's good to keep learning and try new ideas.
