So because I see alot of people failing in PvP in GW I wanna share my experiences in PvP with you to become more of a good player.
I wont give you advices for all of the PvP Modes because some of them I dont play anymore.
So today im going to start with the Random Arenas.
The Random Arenas are a good place to collect some basics of PvP but there are some rules you have to follow otherwise you will fail badly.
Rule 1: If you havnt unlocked all the skills/upgrades and runes dont waste your balthazar points on zaishen keys. It is important to have most of the skills unlocked because you never know if u may need them.
Rule 2: Try to have as much hitpoints as possible. The more hitpoints you have the longer you can deal Dmg or protect your group. This also means that you needn't use major or superior Runes except the superior Life and on Warrior the superior Absorbtion.
Rule 3: If you never played PvP before and you dont have any clue what a good build is, just do all of us PvP players the favor and don't build a build on your own. There is one website which contains all of the builds you need to know (click here). Take a build get used to it and get better.
Rule 4: Weaponsets are extremly important for PvP. That means that every profession, although they cant weild it, should have a shield. Even if you dont have any points in tactics or w.e you will get +8 Armor plus the benefits from the shield. Switch your weaponsets with shortkeys you can reach easily for example y x c v (american z x c v) because you dont need to weild a shield and a mainhand weapon if you dont get attacked.
and Rule 5: I would recommend your not to start with a Warrior, Sin, Dervish because in Random Arenas you will face alot of anti meele stuff and this can get pretty frustrating for you. If you are more experienced you will know what to do to counter it without buildwarsing. Keep in mind that there are alot of hexes and conditions in this game if you dont know them check them out after the battle so you will know what you can do or what not (some skills punish you for attacking/casting or even moving)
I hope thos advices will help you a bit :)
