Imbagon

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

An Imbagon is a Paragon who spams "Save Yourselves!", providing a near-constant +100 armor to other party members. They are most frequently used in the Domain of Anguish, although they are generally useful for PvE. The term is a portmanteau of "Imbalanced" and "Paragon".

  • Since Save Yourselves! is a Warrior skill, Imbagons are always Paragon/Warriors.

Characteristics[edit]

Imbagons are primarily a Support build, with most of their advantages drawn from Shouts. They can also provide minor damage with their Spear and related attack skills.

Shout skills

Although there are several useful shouts in the Tactics line, most have comparable or superior Command-based equivalents.

Notes[edit]

  • "Stand Your Ground!" does not stack with "Save Yourselves!"
  • Have a party member bring Dark Fury to make the job of maintaining "Save Yourselves!" trivial.
  • The +100 AL of "Save Yourselves!" provides a damage reduction of 82.3% (only against armor-respecting damage). Or in other words, dropping SY! will result in about 5.7 times more armor-respecting damage taken.
