    how does fully artie 2h compare to DWC? I've gotta prepare to come back soon, and some mindless bashing will hopefully put my mind back on track :).

    They're both fuckin' great.

    If budget is an issue, pick 2h for weapon costs. If budget isn't an issue, pick whichever one you prefer in PvP cause they're both kickass at bashing.

    Hunting wise, fully artied, 2h is better than DWC, best dps of all specs. Crit smoothing isn't as good since you hit hard, but if you get a Maya, WSC and PRC could let you double kill. Also, Annihiliating probably one shot most stuffs. Your kill rate improves.

    If Priests could use swords instead of maces you'd never see me as another class again.

    Let's trade.

    Priests will be allowed to use swords, and in return DWB will be allowed to use maces.

    It'd be neat if Priests could go with 2H Warhammers and such.

    We can call them the Warrior Priest of Sigmar Aurora or something.

    You can already do that as a Priest:

    People are free to fight any way they want, as long as it's not too goofy! Can definitely use polearms if they want! Would be pretty badass, tbh!

    I was depressed when they announce weaponmastery and didn't have a polearm spec for it like MKO did, or Warrior in Lusternia.

    Pretty much MKO's version of it, except their dragons weren't quite that big.

    Anecdotally speaking, mind crush feels pretty great on telepathy-specced monks. 17 int aldar+rain+quickwitted reduces it to about 2.4-2.5s, which means you're getting a warp/decay tier high damage attack at a medium damage attack's speed. Had great success holding mana prio with splitmind and boosted regen up and transmuting on every attack, was able to solo 2-3 mob rooms with little difficulty in Azdun Catacombs at a reasonable speed.

    You can also stay in Shikudo rain, unequip the staff, wield an SoA and swiftmount too, which is pretty nice. You have to dismount to raze if you're so inclined, or hold off on aff-battlerage attacks to use the brage shatter instead.

    You could probably cheese this further with numbness and transmute burning (aka: taking with numbness and then using a timer to transmute most of your mana pool to health once it finishes) to take on stuff that most lesserform classes wouldn't touch with a 10ft barge pole.

    Yeah, I'm really loving mind crush bashing. My sample experience has been a bit tainted by this damn lily though. I'm currently at 2 boons and 11 banes from it.

    You let a clouded glass lily fall to the ground, its fragile form crumbling into dust upon impact.

    I'm finding monk is equal in raw tankiness to dragon, but less health with more recovery. Vitality is gravy, and RHK UCP UCP for shield break means you can consistently kill when they shield. I still prefer dragon for the biggest places, though.

    That number's got me a little concerned, if only because that means unartied earth elemental hunting properly (ie, keeping max shaping up and constantly killing) will outpace L3 artied serpent and L3 artied 2h knight. 

    That doesn't really seem fair or balanced, especially when compared to air and fire lords.

    "A little concerned"? It pretty much upstages Dragon for tanky bashing.

    I actually like it being good at bashing. It sucks in group, has no escape, and nearly no utility.

    Bashing and 1v1 use sounds okay to me.
