Guild Wars State of the Game: Midline Shutdown Part 2
The second part of the Guild Wars State of the Game series detailing the Midline Shutdown in competative GvG is now available. While part one concentrated on the role of the Mesmer, part two takes a look at the Ranger in this strategy.
Rangers serve three purposes in the midline:
Disruption: using the skills on your bar to interrupt key opposing skills at appropriate times.
Pressure: applied through spamming conditions, as well as controlling position and movement.
Skirmish: providing solid split capabilities, both offensively and defensively.
The build featured in this article is the “Cripshot” Ranger, currently the most popular choice for GvG. The article coaches players on how to most effectively use this particular skill build to fulfill each of the three basic objectives. Get the full run down on the official ArenaNet Guild Wars website.
