Yes as I mentioned you throw down the Choking Gas followed by the Cluster bomb and everything in the AOE gets weakness (50% less damage 50% of the time) and lasts about 20 seconds per application on all mobs up to bosses.

It's extremely fast, and does huge dps to boot. Its hands down the most effective mitigation in the game, and one of if not the most useful tool in our belts.

Oh score! I didn't know that one either. I'm definitely bringing a shortbow as alt weapon on my Thief as well!

Well, I tried it for awhile, and it does work, but it doesn't last 20 seconds. I don't know if that's because I don't spec for conditions or whatever, but it lasts... right around 5 seconds. For that you need to do two attacks in fairly short range, and then by the time they've finally reached you the weakness is already gone again... I tried re-applying it, but that's quite a chore, and the stack really doesn't get much better. I think the longest I got it to stick was right around 8 seconds.

Duration of things really is a big gripe for GW2 (at least for me.) Everything just lasts like 2 and 3 seconds, so there's barely even any point in applying it. Yes, I know it stacks, so if 30 people are ganking a boss, those stacks add up like crazy, but when you play by yourself it seems rather pointless.

It's also quite shitty that when I daze something it lasts for all of a whole frakking SECOND, but when a Dredge dazes me, I'm standing there wobbling like an idiot for 5 seconds.


Anyway, I'm ready to play something new. My Thief is starting to get a little boring, and though I'm close to 80 (well... 62), I just need some fresh air. What's a fun class to play that rocks? I hear the Guardians are pretty awesome?
