Fresh lvl 50, looking for advice from experienced Tamers

1 post in this topic


I have recently finished the grind to lvl 50 and am now looking to find the right build and gear that suits my needs. I have not played any pvp so far which is why I have no clue which skills are useful for pvp and which aren't. I have saved my lvl 46 skill reset and would like to not screw it up. ;)

Here are a few questions. Feel free to ignore as many of them as you'd like, but I would be happy for any piece of advice that I can get.

- I don't like playing glasscannon builds, especially not as a melee. Is it viable to play a more defensive style of Tamer? And what items (sets, jewelry, sockets etc.) would be best for such a style of play? Most of the sets seem to have some kind of balance between defense and offense which makes the choice that much harder for someone like me who doesn't know how to value health, stamina, accuracy, ap in this game.

- For leveling convenience I used Roaring a lot but I'd imagine that skill would not be useful in pvp at all. Is this correct? For grinding mobs we have a lot of aoe damage already with Trample Combos and Whiplash so I am thinking about ditching Roaring altogether after my respec (or maybe only skill it to level 1 for pulling mobs in PvE). Thoughts?

- I have tried out E, S+F and S+RMB and all of these skills seem to be fairly similar knockdown/cc abilities. Which ones of these are the most useful for pvp? I was thinking of probably picking two of them (I prefer E and S+RMB so far) and max one of them.

- Shift+F and Shift+Q are also very similar. I like the utility in PvE and think I would probably want to keep one of those abilities.

- I am kind of confused about Void Lightning. I have only the base version of the skill but it does decent damage and also has a guard effect. How does the guard work in this game? Is it just some sort of improved defense for a short period of time or is it more complicated? Would you suggest maxing this skill?

- How useful are Bolt Wave/Jolt Wave in PvP?

- I know this is a broad question but what are some of the most useful combos for engage, burst damage and finishers as a tamer in PvP?
