I don't like this skill. Raptaz 13:52, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Axe has nothing to produce knockdown and bleeding is sort of anti-climactic. --Life Infusion «T» 00:21, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
What is this Shock Axe warrior I have heard so much about? - Elder Angelus 19:54, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
Even so, bleeding isn't all that useful if you're running any kind of axe build. --SoraMitsukai 20:10, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
Well, it will cover the other conditions that are easy to cause with axes, like cripple and deep wound. Just do: cause the condition -> shock or bull's strike -> lacerating chop. Necromas 18:03, 20 July 2009 (UTC)
Well, it's rubbish even with Bull's Strike in PvP or the introduction of Brawling Headbutt into PvE. Bleeding is a weak condition, has no synergy with any other axe attacks, and I have better things to do to knocked down foes, like spike them with Eviscerate & Executioner's Strike. Needs a rework to ever make it onto my bar. Astralphoenix777 00:53, 9 August 2009 (UTC)
I'd have to agree its functionality is flawed but skill changes belong in the feedback and suggestion section please Nay the One and Only User Nay the One and Only SIG.jpg 05:10, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Suggested Usage[edit]

Likely no one or few still read these pages, but thought I'd add some suggested usage anyway, which in this case seems to have been missed. While I've never personally used this skill (at least not much nor regularly), my normal guide is that skills are designed to be used somewhere in the campaign (in this case Guild Wars Factions) that they are introduced. As noted in an earlier comment, Bleeding is usually a weak condition, but that changes against the Wardens, against which Knock down is enhanced as well (i.e. Lacerate and Brambles). Ignoring PvE skills, I'm thinking this is designed to be used with Shove, "Coward!" or the previously mentioned Shock. Perhaps a KD sin using an axe may be able to use this as well, but I don't run those types of builds. Lord Flynt (talk) 02:29, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

I still read these pages! This skill and brambles is redundant, and lacerate is pretty awful. I think you're right though, this is probably for shock axe. 00:27, 8 February 2019 (UTC)
I think I've seen this skill used in bars where people run four weapons for the sake of stupid weapon swapping skills (to be fair, it is pretty fun...). Though in my opinion it makes sense to just use Rake for the 15s cripple with no attribute investment and find another way to bleed if needed. Loggy (talk) 15:10, 8 February 2019 (UTC)
