Considering a Warrior - Better with Awakening?

13 posts in this topic

Posted

Heya everyone!

I I tried out the warrior back in the beta days and after returning to the game a few weeks ago, I went ahead and rolled a witch instead.  At the time, I hated how slow the class felt and as someone with only 137/174 GS, I was told warrior would require a much better set of gear to be effective.  I'm a semi-casual player so getting full TET seams very unlikely for the near future.

Anyways, I love playing melee classes but as I've been leveling a warrior alt, he again feels very slow and that so many of his skills aren't very useful.  From what I've seen, the awakening weapon and skills make it much quicker in mobility, adds a great deal to PvE farming, and makes the class pretty much tops on 1v1 PvP.

As someone who will be working with my guild on PvP and really likes a fast-paced/high mobility class, is the warrior something I should just stick out and work towards 56?

In fact warrior needs less gear then other classes to deal same damage.

Not rly similar to witch...

But yes. With lower stats u can do pretty well... It's rly good 1v1, XvX and 1vX class. 

But yea, I would say for PVE it's not that great, coz of higher cooldowns of skills that are rly good at pve. 

If you want really fast PVE class, try Musa... But for me I'd say it's super boring... :)

It depends what you want.... if you want to be high end with lower stats you cant. Plain and simple. If you want to grind effectively then you can, and have fun at node wars.

Agree, warrior is not that great in PVE against weak mobs, but pretty nice at higher lvl areas in valencia, at 190ap i need around 2-3 skills to kill basilisks

Well, for comparison purposes then, my witch is currently level 56 (almost 57) and I can run around pirates or sausans with 137 AP/ 175 DP and pretty much mow down groups of mobs.  With that poison AoE she drops, followed by my 1-5 skill rotation, the groups dead.  Her teleport makes it quick to jump from group to group without much downtime.  Also, as she can regen health/mana, I have very little need for pots unless I get into a very bad situation.

I watched a level 58 warrior in my group at pirates the other day do pretty much the same thing as he flew from group to group and just dropped hell down on them.  It looked really fun!  Don't get me wrong, I like the witch (and her snarky animations) but I'd much rather be playing a melee class.  Also, I'm not a huge fan of playing female characters.

I've tried the other classes (Musa, Maewah, Valk) and just got bored with them too quickly.  I have no real interest in a Ninja.

So... with all that, is the Warrior a good option?  I'm mainly just afraid of putting all that work into a character only to be disappointed once I reach 56.

The awakening definitely makes Warrior strong and much more competitive farming in PVE. Not gonna lie, the grind to 56 with non-awaken will be hell as it is quite slow - try to group grind so you don't feel like killing yourself (I did 1-56 before the pre-awaken buffs - it might be ok now...).

The only problem warrior would have compare to PVE grinding is obviously what you said - the Witch has far better combo options that are op and to stop the mobs resetting you need to keep hitting them so on the warrior you need more AP IMO to do this.

Why not a wizard if you don't like female characters?

That's pretty much how it has felt so far - hell!  I've tried to level a warrior a few times and never really make it that far.  It just feels so much more boring than I would have expected.  The Musa was really fun, quick and exciting but felt so under-powered at about the mid 40's.  Course, I didn't have the best of gear back then.  Also, I can't stand the idea of putting away those amazing sword animations for that stupid pole-arm.  Oh, and why the witch over the wizard?  I didn't want to look like Gandalf.  When I came back to the game, I didn't know you can make a "young" wizard.  That, and with all the hate towards the class right now, I'd rather avoid them.

That sucks to hear!  I love playing a class that is quick and moves around the battlefield.  If any of you played a D/D Ele from GW2, you'll know pretty much what I'm looking for.

Since warriors are so good, what do you do when you get grabbed by a ranger, cced by a sorc or wizard? you get one shoted

Even a tammer/ninja one shots warriors these days.
