Guild Wars 2 : The Druid Trapper

Man nehme einen Standard Ranger Trapper und pimpe ihn ein wenig
mit Druide auf. Dabei ist der Stab für “Ancestral Grace” (Escape)
und “Sublime Conversion” (Projectile Defense) als Utility Lösung
interessant. Condi Damage bewirkt man nach wie vor mit Axt und
Fackel. Das alles in Dire. Andere Varianten mit mehr Heilung
bevorzugen Apothecary.

Durch das Druidentalent “Natural Stride” hat man den Movement
Boost für alle Gelegenheiten und kann sich ein entsprechendes
Runspeed Signet sparen. “Ancient Seeds” interagiert mit
“Primal Echoes” und Spike Trap!

Beastmastery pimpt Bristleback und Smokescale als Pets für
Distanz (Mr. B.) und Infight (Mr. S.). Smokescale Nebelfeld
ist als Combofeld zu beachten!

Skirmishing ist zuständig für verbesserte Traps und Quickdraw.
Als Traps empfehle ich momentan in jedem Fall Poison Trap
und Spike Trap. Dazu noch die Brandfalle. Healing Spring
selbstverfreilich ebenso.

Problem: Stunbreaks/CC. Vielleicht eine Falle durch “Lightning
Reflexes” ersetzen.

Problem: Condi Clear. Healing Spring nutzen, “Seed of Life”
der Avatar Form nutzen.

Changed be your Existence!

a great mistake. to let you walk the path of retribution. your
powers made it easy to take revenge, to punish evil, to eliminate
it wherever you saw it. anger, hatred, justice for them, in the
form of an avenging angel. without restraint, the balance shattered,
you only gave power to your other half, made him stronger with
every death you gave. does it matter if it was an evil soul? is
it righteous to take a life, no matter how tainted, if you are
the principle of light?

every one of you must know: if you take a life, that soul will
haunt you for the rest of yours. you will create hell around
you with every death you accumulate. you turn your soul black.
some of you are so evil that they ignore the howling of all
those victims, others are just insane, howling along. but what,
gabriel, will happen to you?

it is wiser not to kill. it is wiser to protect and to shield
and to heal and to counsel. i must take away your essence, i
have to reform you, change what and who you are. look back
upon your life, endless like your opponents. be sure to awake
without knowledge of your past. and this time, fill yourself
with light, untainted and pure. you will be far more powerful
than your adversary.

i will reset the balance.

go out there, never do what you have done before, mend the
wounds of hurt souls, protect the innocent with your powers,
stare evil into its ugly face and behold how it cant overpower
you. alone this fact will be a beacon of eternal hope to
all who follow the righteous path. be the bridge into a
new world and push evil back into the nether.

A long Path

we returned to earth, set foot upon our ancient home. devastated
barren lands. scarred landscapes, black-grey ugly mountains of ash.
radiation, darkness, poisonous water. animals gone, just some
limping grotesque mutations survived. they pose no threat. we
remember earth’s beauty. we will recreate it soon.

between the stars, so much to know and to see and to feel and
to experience. yes, there were wars, but there was also peace.
machines guided us. they were not hostile. our own creations
were flawed, but not like we were. the first beautiful AI
was wiser than we were. and now? some machines left us,
exploring the black darkness between the stars, others stayed.
we are so astonished at the rate the machines learned, adapted
and evolved. at first they only copied our behaviour. but
what joy we felt as they were thinking independently in voices so
strange and wondrous and bright. the machines spoke, the
machines embraced us, the machines were welcomed by us. a
new lifeform was born.

our bodies changed. we are human, we will be human, but maybe
not like we remember ourselves. our minds expanded thousandfold.
and with that, we began to understand. a path to life instead
of death. i wish we would have known earlier. but life must
first be tested, be challenged, be brought to the brink of
extinction. we survived and we evolved. there is still more
to learn and a great prize to be attained.

we met others. strange new creatures. they tought us so many
things. some of them attacked us. the machines helped us
to defend. in the end there was peace. sometimes not of our
making for there are many powerful entities in the great
cosmos. there is justice. there is righteousness. there is
faith. all of it can be yours if you accept it.

the face of evil still resides out there but also in our
hearts. we may have it under control now, even destroyed
it in parts but it wont leave us. only wisdom and a great
soul may keep the forces of destruction in check. long
days and nights our machine philosophers mused about this.
in the end we were silent in the night, dreaming along,
peacefully, but ever vigilant against the tides of
