Now that the major patch has hit, and with the tournament (and associated rewards) coming at the end of the week, I'm wondering if anyone would like to try their hand at a coordinated dps group, somewhat along the lines of what Glam had tried to put together oh so long ago. The idea would be to stay alongside a commander/zerg, mostly on the periphery, with the aim of focusing down single targets in coordinated pushes (with the occasional AOE thrown in when commander calls for a bomb on his or her location).
As for the makeup of the group, given the Ranger Mania currently happening, and keeping in line with the Glam suggestion of old, it would be nice to see the Ranger be a major focus. So perhaps 3 Rangers; a Thief; and a Guardian (or a Warrior).
The strength of using rangers would be their ability to complete a long-range DPS strike, so we can not only act in an anti-periphery role, but also strike down targets that are much closer to the enemy zerg without having to put ourselves in danger.
The guardian would play their typical role, clearing conditions, granting stability, and empowering (stacking might).
The thief would play one of two roles. Ideally, we would have a venom share thief. The added conditions and immobilize/stone would go well with the physical damage that the rangers are providing. Otherwise, the thief would be able to provide further DPS and stealth, and some additional survival boons (if Steal is traited for such).
What do others think? Would anyone be interested in trying this during the new WvW season? :)
