User:The Cabal/Skills/Ideas to Buff Skills

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

There are many skills in the GW world, but hardly any of the how many skills there are, are usable. So I have decided to make a page dedicated to buffing skills instead of nerfing.

Anything marked with a User The Cabal Green thumbs up.png has been changed at least a little to make it better.

Warrior[edit]

I have no idea what is good and bad since I don't play the profession.

Ranger[edit]

Same as above.

Something has to be done with Smiting prayers to make it more like a few good examples in the line already, for example, reversal of damage. There shouldn't be any direct damage skills, leave that to things like an Elementalist.

Shouts[edit]

Shouts in general need a buff to their recharge times. At the moment, they aren't too useful unless there are multiple people using them, a.k.a. gimmicks. Also the motivation line as a whole could use a buff, it got nerfed too heavily before IMO. Many things could be added to the list for Paragons before, but that could make many things over powered.

  • Vow of Piety
    • Increase the healing slightly
  • Vow of Silence
    • Rework or allow allied spells to target you
  • Winds of Disenchantment
    • Needs a rework

Dervish Healing[edit]

What I would really like to see on the dervish is the ability to be a secondary healer, kind of like a restoration ritualist. They have the skills for it, they just need to be buffed or reworked, ex, mystic healing, sig of pious light, etc.
