    Oh, ok. I have around 16 ecto right now, so maybe I'll spend it on some new Elementalist armour to put in HoM.

    I have allowed my friend play on my account. He's impressed with the graphics. Much better than he expected since it's a 2005 game. I suppose they did add minor improvements over the campaigns.

    Add Radiants and Attunements to all your armour pieces.

    You will have to spawn the spirits in a certain pattern to protect others. If you'd like I could show you in-game.

    As for the items, go to this guy http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Jahn_Pitz and get a Channeling Focus. Go to http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Helenah for a Ritualist wand. Then add Radiants and Attunements to all your armour pieces.

    You will have to spawn the spirits in a certain pattern to protect others. If you'd like I could show you in-game.
    If this is the build I'm thinking of, those 'half recharge' things are useless, because summoning spirits is a binding ritual, and is not affected by the recharge of spells. The build I use only has 1 spell, actually. And that one already has a duration longer than its recharge.

    Edited:

    Yeah, mine is the same as yours, except you use Summon Spirits, while I use Spirit Leech Aura from EOTN. It heals the spirits when they attack.

    Also, you only really need about 50 energy to cast all of those spells without waiting. I do it with 48 just fine, and the rest I used to get more health, so I could survive Skeletons of Dhuum better, or the occasional Aatxe hit.

    Use any weapon combo you want, what he linked you is useless

    I personally trap with a Ranger, the Ataxes and Smite Crawlers are nice to do it to, as are the monsters in Stygian Veil (Which is how I got to rank 8 Lightbringer in a single day, along with 200 Skillpoints to buy skills with) That's the same as going from level 19 to 20 200 times, In Hard Mode you'll ding it every run

    Echo > Serpents Quickness > Dust Trap > Flame Trap > Tripwire > Barbed Trap > Winnowing > Sprint/Trapper's Speed/Whirling Defense for pulling, +16 Wilderness Survival, +15 Expertise, and a +20 Energy Staff (+15 works too)

    Works great, You just lay down the spirit and then spam traps for 80 seconds and pull, They gather around and attack your spirit, which is where you laid the traps, then get crippled and KD'd and take the damage like a prisoner getting raped

    An old build of mine, which has been nerfed, in action:




    Notice the Experience bar, I take the mission, do one group which you see in these two shots, then a second group spawns and I take them out, then repeat

    A couple more shots of some trapping action (These were taken over 3 years ago mind you)









    Never underestimate a couple Rangers, we're Badasses



    And yes I use that same Bow today, although it now does +25% vs Charr, (60% total extra damage vs Charr) That's right, Twenty FIVE percent. I horded quite a few +25% vs Charr mods before Eye of the North came out, and Anet nerfed them after it released to +20%, but all of mine I horded are still +25%

    Screenshot please on the 25% mods, preferably showing they can be salvaged. I know someone who had a +15% -1 health regen bow. I don't know if it got modified in the past 2 1/2 years since that person stopped playing, but I was under the impression that the of ___slaying mods got fixed.

    Unless it's one of those weird non max items like the pre searing rin blade, you might have something valuable.

    over the years Anet did turn my Bow into a Shortbow in an update, Oh well :(. The bow has too much sentimental value to me to just toss it out since it's no longer a Longbow, I've had it since the first week of Guild Wars, Besides, It's useful with Needleshot and Quick shot as a Shortbow

    Those Sword Pommels are also +25% vs Charr. I've given most of them away to the guild but I've got about 6 or 7 total left

    I might try to sell them for some ridiculous amount of cash... 30 Plat or so a pop

    Can I get in on this?

    I've played since very late 2005- very early 2006, and I'd love to play this again the way I did then, like this thread proposes.

    My builds are self-made, but tested to work. Builds are half the fun in my opinion. I even made a build where I can use a Scythe on me ele just for screwing around. The funny part is that I can solo most of Ascalon on HM with it.



    The ele's different armors have different runes so I can run a build for each element when I feel like changing, (plus, I needed the armors for my HoM,) the Warrior is mainly for PvP (Alliance Battles,) the Necro is a level 10, and so that leaves the Rit and the Ele as my main characters. The ele's beaten every campaign and the Rit has beaten a couple.

    I usually use my Rit now, because that build is so easy and so, so effective.

    Yeah, it's a good strategy that will likely get nerfed somehow. They just can't think of how without making spirits useless

    Edited:
    Also, I finally gave my heroes some non shit weapons and armor. Ogden went from the default weapon to a +15 energy, half recharge time of spells (20%, half recharge time of Healing spells (20%), +30 health.
    He is now more well equipped than my monk character.

    I wish it was 20% enchanting, but I don't want to risk breaking either of my two good monk staffs.

    I have a similar staff, but for air magic, that I want to give to Vekk, but I don't have any good air magic spells for him. Are there any good hero builds centered on air magic?

    They'll nerf it like they did with Minion Masters

    Put a limit on how many spirits you can have, I remember the days when people had 20-30 Minion armies

    There used to be a screenshot of an old Hall of Heroes battle, before the gates were open, and one of the teams had about 40 frickin minions already

    Their team used sacrifices to kill themselves repeatedly?

    They're probably cap spirits at like 3 or 4. 2 spirits is useless really, and 6 can solo UW.

    Yeah, But they had so many Minions before the round even started that they could just steamroll over anyone, we're talking 30 to 40 max level Minions, And that was just one or two Necromancers too

    Merchant was selling them for 8k each, and they dropped down to 7.5k yesterday, which means you could sell to the merchant for 6k (5.5k yesterday) Plenty of people buying for 6.5k though, and then re-selling for 7k
