  • I have updated my archery build with a significant change. As of Mod 15, HRs appear to no longer have the means to proc Combatant's Maneuver on bosses. So I have removed this mount insignia power from the build. Instead, for the time being, I'm reco…
  • @wdj40 It has been discussed extensively in the HR discussion groups on Facebook and Discord. As I said, it might have been console only. There were a number of other console specific bugs recently. Anyway, it really was broken and this is honestly …
  • BTW, it seems Aspect of the Pack is broken in Mod 15. The passive is now no longer providing Combat Advantage. DPS roles should still run Aspect of the Pack with the Offhand Artifact Power because it still provides a consistent up to +8% damage bonu…

  • @wdj40 It's not the greatest video I know. I think the player was just trying out the build and perhaps had not fully mastered the rotation. It does take some practice. But that group was impressed with the performance, none the less. Ultimately, re…
  • I'm still going to record something, but just saw this today. It is a recording posted Jan. 22nd showing a hybrid buff HR in an Orcus 1-phase run.
  • @wdj40 I was planning to make a video, but had been so far getting feedback and making refinements first before taking that next step. I should be able to do a basic concept demo at the dummies though. I'll follow-up on that. But I do want to show t…
  • In general, one thing I do frequently mention is that all HRs can buff. We all have access to the same powers and I think Trappers in particular are well suited to the task as a buffer. In fact with high enough recovery, Trappers can maintain consta…
  • Ladies, ladies, calm yourselves. Typo, you're a good theorycrafter, and Wdj40 is a great pvper, you're both good HRs, no biting plz. This is really a great discussion. WDJ40 brings up a common question. He is not the first to ask "why not a Trappe…
  • Jonk and Typo... I dont know why you are both bringing up DPS or secondary DPS as you have clearly stated this is not for DPS purposes. So the proposed rotation I mentioned via the Trapper Path has nothing to do with DPS, I have not tested the damag…
  • @wdj40 The rotation you describe is not something I would personally recommend for a buffer because you cannot maintain 100% uptime of LSS doing that. Hawk Shot in particular is a slow power and won't make much difference and Rapid Strike twice into…
  • Wow, that's a nice looking guide. Good job. As you say, it's pretty much impossible to go wrong with this build, as the core of it doesn't require anything other than the right choice of paragon, feats and powers, none of which require very much it…
  • I updated my version of the build just this weekend, in part because console is now at Mod 15. No fundamental changes to the feats or other core aspects, but I did add some clarifications and options here and there, some of which were influenced by …
  • @hastur905 shares his Mod 15 archery-combat hybrid build in a new video. Check it out!
  • @xmarik69x Hopefully I didn't discourage you or anything from that last comment. Anyway, here is something you might find helpful. Since there are not just a lot of pure PVE archery builds out there, I decided to write up a pure archery build. It is…
  • Are you my long lost twin brother? haha LOL, that is pretty funny.
  • For ease of reference, I'm just adding a comment here with all the HR changes from Mod 15. Hunter Ranger Changes The Stormwarden and Pathfinder Paragon Paths have been differentiated a bit more; Pathfinder should now be more effective in a party s…
  • Still, if running with another class that gives CA, there's really no other options. Archery will never get the chance to fully optimize it's damage. The spec just needs one further light boost to reach more competitive levels. I do agree that th…
  • only bad thing with archery is that is doesn't get an arsenal of solid offensive class features. Archery is a mix of single target hits so twin blade storm will not be helping. Just leaves seeker's vengeance, which isn't terribly reliable outside of…
  • FYI to the Archers, I just updated my hybrid archery build to Mod 15. Not a lot of changes really. Mostly I simply added the new boons, adjusted the introduction section, and made a few other small changes. http://bit.ly/Yarrows-Hybrid-Archery-Build
  • This really is a great opportunity for any NW Xbox players, regardless of being in Poison Clan, some another alliance, or in no guild at all, to be able to get runs in these endgame dungeons.
  • @xmarik69x Having a melee loadout is great. So then my feedback above still would apply for the feats you listed in terms of solo range playing. You can just ignore the parts that mention what-ifs about being in a party. And the feats from Bloodtale…
  • @artifleur I do understand damage buffs being multiplicative is not new information, however given the rather extensive changes to HR feats and powers, as well as the complaints about bugs during preview, it just seemed prudent to perform the testin…
  • @xmarik69x Since you appear to want to play ranged only and solo only, I will recommend the following: First, since you do not seem to like melee, then if you really want to fight from range only, you will need to have a defender companion that wi…
  • > Is that a build and is it mod 15? I used to main a hr b4 i switched to pally. I have 100% campaign completion on the hr so id like him to be viable in group play in mod 15. Currently a combat hr and i die nonstop If you are looking for a sta…
  • H.R. Buffnstuff. I'm just saying. I once saw a toon named HR Buff'n Stuff, or something spelled about like that. Pretty funny because it fits HR well.
  • Looks like BCD ftw. That's really what made me pick that feat. It lowers the action point requirement and, if Slasher's was being used for some reason, then it would really help so you could keep using it more quickly. Ultimately the whole philoso…
  • Thanks for the update. Binding Arrow seems like a good choice, I'll try it. Why did you take Slasher's Speed? Are you using Slasher's Mark? I prefer Fleet Stance. @artifleur @jonkoca I see nothing wrong with choice of Fleet Stance. I do not have…
  • Ok, I've updated my version of the buff build to now show the multiplicative damage buff for LSS+Hawkeye. Those buffs do not just simply add together! Below are the test results from Yona in the HR Discord group. He is a French PC player and so he h…
  • Hey @jonkoca and @artifleur! Here is an updated version of the Buff HR build from me and Niszdog. It is now two pages. At the bottom of page 2, I include a link to this page (Jonkoca's build) and I mention both of you. This was a helpful discussion!…
