Replaying PvE - For fun this time.


Recently Lilondra's guild started to do some PvE, in an unusual way. We set up rules to make sure things wont turn into a tank-nuke-heal triangle, a PVESKILLABUSE headbashing, or simply a gimmickfest. Its fun and worth a try

Our Goal[edit]

We decided to venture into the depths of Sorrow's Furnace. Those depths you can never fully experience with homing nukes, extra battery + autoturrets, more autoturrets, even more autoturrets or invincibility. This way we use slightly (heavily - editor) PvP-ish builds.

General builds[edit]

Since many have stopped playing, the last two of us decided to do things gw2 style - as in no heroes, no henches, bring selfheals.

We are the last of the masters, we are the last of the few, the proud, we are the...

  1. Characters can't use storage.
  2. You can only play with the team, no solo play unless the following conditions are met:
    1. You have to gain levels to catch up
    2. Your team planned to do like 4 more quests, but you had to go, in this case you can do the required quests.
  3. If you solo, you have to bring henchmen to have the full party size.
  4. If your party has less members than the maximum party size, then you have to bring as many henchmen as needed for the maximum party size.
  5. You must play balanced: Tank-Nuke-Heal triangle is not allowed.

How can you play it?[edit]


First you need to have a spare character space on your account, Prophecies unlocked, some knowledge of positioning, and the ability to play for fun instead of playing for ingame goods.

How to play it[edit]

First see how many friends you are going to play with: 4, 6 and 8 are the ideal party sizes. Decide which quests you will do in pre-searing and post searing if the full party isn't playing together.

Then pair up with a friend in Pre-searing ascalon, complete as many quests as you decided earlier, then go to post-searing.

In post, meet your friends who also made their way there, and start doing the skill quests, get the collector armor, and make your first "build". Flarespam is heavily discouraged. If you have vent and a good monk (preferably boonprot with signet of devotion), you can run frenzy on a warrior, of course only with a cancel stance. (sprint is good) While you are around level 3-4, start doing northern wall mission, and when you finished building yourself, (lvl5-6) start fort ranik and surmia. If you have a group of six, start heading towards the shiverpeaks (nolani) and unite your party at Yak's Bend.

Then proceed to Kryta, Do some skill quests, get to ToA, and to Maguuma jungle. Continue this procedure untill you arrive at Droknar's Forge.

Get max armor, and get proper weapons. Sorrow's Furnace is the best option for getting max items. Then it is time to begin hunting, killing, and using hard mode to get the best of challenges:

Here I got a few ideas, but since the limit is your (or our) creativity, feel free to start a section with your challenge for strictly prophecies only pve groups. I'll start with my own and hopefully we can send another snowball down the webhill.

Also it is good if you spice it up with your own lore, give the quests some meanings, and use GW as a role-playing medium.
