Top 5 most overpowered in LS PvP

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

LS PvP Meta


Here are the top 5 most overpowered builds that really need nerfs.

1. Stamina Tanks:  With all the PvP mods now in place, new gear, health pool increase, and the Recuperate buff, its possible for Stamina Tanks (12k + health)
to be unkillable, i have witnessed 6 players lay into one of these tanks for 5 mins before they went down, it was funny enough that we all just made jokes about it
however this is far less funny in a 1v1 on high risk.

2. Shadow Bolt:  Can currently reach a 1 GCD kill on a player, with 1 hard cast straight into an Instant cast proc, i have seen a double Bolt hitting for over 3.5k each.

3. Devouring Plague:  This one ability can be over scaled to hit almost 2k in PvP with just the Improved part and almost 1k ticks, its actually viable to only spam Devouring Plague.

4. Mongoose (Savage Strikes):  By far the top psy melee build reaching over 4k in GCD value, with no setup, Counterattack=2k, Raptor=1k, Wind Fury=1k 
and bleed ticks, it always causes Imminence pressure, especially to casters as there main abilities are available every time they connect. 

5. Rejuvenation:  Can tick over 2ks, with Wild Growth being ridiculous HPS in group PvP while using purge protection.
Its to be expected that HoT healers are the meta after the Spell Mastery nerf, casting Holy Light/Wave under the effects of a 30% cast reduction (Slow & Numb)
is very tedious against a good player using additional CC as well, even with all the mandatory Haste talents.
 

I put together some basic build core's quickly for what i believe are the issues, they should be accurate for the casual PvP scene "BG Heroes" and NOT top tier 1v1's builds.  
 

1: Stamina Tanks:

The Changes posted yesterday have tackled the issues with the Devouring Plague build very well.

I like being a bg hero but bgs really died on ls so i swapped to andorhal to clean up in bgs.  This is hermacles-ls/ pugslayer-andorhal
