Builds & Equipment
Since my guild, [PIG], enjoys pets so much; there are a number of pet builds we like and use. But there is one that sticks out that we often use, even on heroes (with a tweak). The build and the fun we have with it was actually the inspiration behind our guild. Created by Fend from the Hamstorm Nation [PIG] guild, I give you… Hamstorm! By the way, quick background, it is called “Hamstorm” because we often used pigs as pets and stormed our foes with the pets. It is also a play on the uber GW box art build.
Ok, lets give us something visual.
Obviously there may be tweaks to the build depending on the area, but this is the most commonly used version. For more of [PIG]‘s pet builds head to our forums.
Armor penetration +20% (Chance: 20%)
Damage +15% (while Health is above 50%) “Strength and Honor”
Received physical damage -5 (Chance: 20%) “Luck of the Draw”
Offhand (bonus energy, good if you are having energy issues)
Energy +12 (Requires 9 attribute of choice)
Armor +5 (while Health is above 50%) “Hail to the King”
Ok, I’ve stated my case about pets. I don’t expect to see a surge of pets in GW because of this, but I do hope you get to experience some of the fun tactics pets provide. They are tons of fun and I’d be happy to team up with anyone interested in experiencing some tooth and claw battles! HAMSTORM!
If you get anything from this 3 part piece take this with you; GW is a game, make it fun.
