I stopped playing GW after doing everything I originally wanted to do, but the War in Kryta and mesmer and dervish updates got me back in. Looking forward to the Winds of Change and GW2.

Current go-to team for 7-hero stuff

This is the team I generally take, as a warrior, dervish or dagger-spam ranger. The basic setup is: 2 spirit-spamming rits, 2 shutdown mesmers, a minion master and a couple of support guys. Within that framework, skills and characters can get swapped around depending on the circumstances, eg Shelter isn't so necessary if there are no double-damage ele/rit bosses to fight; or I may switch the MM out if there are no corpses.

I dislike builds that use one class to do another class's job, such as E/Mo Ether Renewal protters, so these bars are fairly straightforward. Just having 7 fully-specced heroes is enough to rampage through nearly all areas in hard mode, whether or not the builds are fully optimised.
