First! Hi Armond :) -- scourge 04:20, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

Hi. :P About time I lost a red link at the top right corner. Armond 04:35, 23 December 2007 (UTC)

You need more talk. Lord Belar 21:15, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
I do. I tend to have a shitty talk page unless I'm an admin. Armond 21:17, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
Well, let's get an RfA going then! Oh, right, we don't have an admin policy yet. :/ Lord Belar 21:18, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
I'm waiting for DE or Auron to get to be bureaucrats. At that point, all the PvX admins will be admins here, too! Buahahahaha! Armond 21:25, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
Shh! Someone might overhear! Then it'll never work! Lord Belar 21:27, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
Man, every time I go to my watchlist I have a new message. You're stalking me, Belar. :/ Now I really want admin powers... :P Armond 21:28, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
Hey, I've got nothing better to do. And you're the only one on right now. :/ Lord Belar 21:29, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
All non-admins have shitty talk pages, besides Auron. And if PvX admins were admins here, this place would be a circus. Not that that's a bad thing or anything... Calor (t) 21:52, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
Circuses are fun... you get to charge admission fees. 10K OR NO WIKI FOR YOU Armond 21:52, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
Hey, that's a good idea. We should charge people 10k whenever we see them running a PvX build. Lord Belar 21:59, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
Admin powers for what Armond? Anja, at your service. ;) - anja talk 21:54, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
[[MediaWiki:Watchlist]] Put in 9001 characters so it blocks out the rest of the page gogogo. (Or just put in "My stalklist" and be done with it.) :P Armond 22:10, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
I think the current vote on PvX favors Skakid over stalklist. :) Lord Belar 22:12, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
QQ, I have that switch wiki thingie on my monobook thing and I keep thinking I have admin tabs. Armond 22:25, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
Hopefully, you'll have them here soon enough. Lord Belar 22:36, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

Man, caches clear slow when you edit the .js. Armond 22:37, 30 December 2007 (UTC)


order of the stick ftw! i saw your screenshot with the bookmark on it :P - Y0_ich_halt Have a look at my page 16:15, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

You swamped my watchlist >.< --User Pling sig.png Plingggggg \ Talk 18:26, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
Believe me, my watchlist has been swamped too... -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 18:27, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
my watchlist isn't long enough to get swamped :P - Y0_ich_halt Have a look at my page 18:53, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
You just need a new watchlist. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 18:55, 18 February 2008 (UTC)


Armond is a big dummy. lol.

Whoru. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 20:51, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
Anon. Lord Belar 20:55, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

Ah hah! The other side to that team![edit]

Found that on PvX. Heh, I still want to do a 12 man Infuse in Urgoz (cause in The Deep you have either: No killing power or Exhaustion). Wonder if it's possible to hit 30k... ^^ The 20k wasn't all that hard, really. We got it in 3 tries (I cancelled my Maintains to regen, forgot to recast when attempting for the second time. That sucked :) ) --- User Vipermagi Sig.jpg-- (s)talkpage 17:39, 19 February 2008 (UTC)


Sort of sad to see you go, I guess. I never knew you very well, although I respected your opinions in discussions. Good luck with things (and WoW, I suppose). Calor Talk 20:48, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Did you just use "balance" and "WoW" in the same sentence? Lord Belar 21:14, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Did you just use "Izzy" and "can actually be balanced" in the same sentence? --User Pling sig.png pling | ggggg 21:35, 14 April 2008 (UTC)


srsly wows pvp is just retarded, its 100 ppl running around throwing spells around everywhere without any strategy or anything. --Cursed Angel talk 22:23, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
Point taken. :P -- 22:58, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
U leik balanc? Try M:tG. That's got great balance, and has more cards then WoW and GW have skills (combined). --User Jioruji Derako logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 23:01, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
It's got great balance because they disallow use of about half the cards they release. -- 23:07, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
Just play RS. :P Lord Belar 23:10, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Well, following in reverse alphabetical order of those whose names begin with "a," Anja will be next. Lord Belar 00:39, 15 April 2008 (UTC)
Oh, the irony.. (I play WoW already) - anja talk 07:13, 15 April 2008 (UTC)
Oh... dear... What other "A"'s do we have around here? CURSED! NOT U TOO! -- nuke7 User Nuclear7 sig image2.jpg 11:02, 15 April 2008 (UTC)
Aiiane will be after that. :/ Lord Belar 22:06, 15 April 2008 (UTC)
Someone doesn't actually know the ban list for M:tG... =P --User Jioruji Derako logo.png Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 04:33, 18 April 2008 (UTC)


Hi Armond. Good to see you on GW2 wiki. ~Shard (talk) 03:50, 1 June 2008 (UTC)


sure wow could be balanced if every1 would have the same freaking gear... - Wuhy User Wuhy sig.jpg 02:21, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

No Armond[edit]

You are the bad. Felix Omni Signature.png 04:46, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

Sup, Armond[edit]

Hey! (Thanks for correcting my typo.) – Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 23:14, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

You know, for some reason I was under the impression that you were on GWW, not GW2W. Glad I was wrong! -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 09:24, 12 May 2012 (UTC)


You've listed some comment on the Fire rune, but have you also taken into consideration the Elementalist signet build? With the right setup, that lone fire shield would als grant you protection, swiftness and fury. Maybe something worth noting? 20:14, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

Yes and no. It is a stronger rune if you can trigger things that proc on aura application, but it still has a 90 second cd, which is what keeps me from rating it higher on those builds (my bias against those builds aside). Still, I've mentioned it; thanks. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 20:27, 24 September 2012 (UTC)
Good point. I suppose it's rather conditional. 12:43, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

Related on a tangent, but Divinity runes add to condition damage as well. Pika Fan 12:50, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

orly? That must (read: might) be new, I swear that wasn't on my paper doll when I checked it. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 22:55, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
Well, the boost to condition damage does help condispammers slightly, but the biggest boost to those specs is condition duration anyway, which I think the Divinity runes do not provide, but I will some testing in that regard. Pika Fan 11:21, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
Nope, does not boost condition duration, so it's really bad for condispammers.Pika Fan 11:29, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
Condi duration is only useful (for damage) when it breaks a benchmark (specifically, when it adds +1s to the duration), unless I've missed something. At least, I've been speccing my ele for 20 Fire Magic, because Stone Shards' 6s bleeding is increased to 7s at 17 Fire Magic, and then you get the all-important major trait. I was under the impression, though, that stacking condi duration to 7.8s (with 30 fire magic) was essentially the same as stacking it to 7s. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 20:40, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
True, even .9 seconds is rounded down to 0 seconds in-game, but if you can get the 1s with condi duration it's a bigger damage increase over 100 condition damage. Pika Fan 20:47, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
Isn't it true that condition damage gives a different boost to like every skill (or at least every different condition), same as healing power? That just makes calculations more confusing. Vili 点 User talk:Vili 23:10, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
5% of your condition damage total goes to bleeding, 25% to burning, 10% to poison, 7.5% to confusion. These are just numbers off the top of my head, so pardon me if I got them wrong. For healing power, each healing skill has a different ratio.Pika Fan 23:22, 29 September 2012 (UTC)
It's basically exactly the same as WoW (except that dots use standard formulae instead of crazy formulae), which makes it intuitive enough for me. The unfortunate part is that condition damage does nothing for utility conditions, which are really the ones that are... much more worth caring about. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 23:15, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
On a completely unrelated but somewhat related subject, I've recently acquired a full set of Golemancer runes to try out that golem summon. It turns out that the golem is actually quite robust. It lasts for about 55 seconds and can take hits as well as an Elite Earth Elemental. It's damage isn't gamebreaking, but still reasonable and it's whirling attack can help get foes off your back. Finally, the golem, unlike the Elementalist's summons, can be used while underwater (and so does the pirate's parrot btw). Don't know if this changes anything for your rating of the rune, but I figured I might as well share the info. 08:59, 13 October 2012 (UTC)
And another question about the conditions...on my signet of fire the burning is listed as a fractal number (10 1/4 I believe). Does that mean that it lasts 10 seconds despite being listed as 10.25? Or was it a recnet change to add fractions to skill numbers? 09:06, 13 October 2012 (UTC)
Boons and conditions have had fractions listed for as long as I can remember, but just keep in mind that GW2 only deals condition damage once a second. Therefore, the .25 seconds extra doesn't do you any good - even though you might visually see extra damage numbers pop up, they don't actually deplete the foe's health. Vili 点 User talk:Vili 04:35, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
I don't think any extra damage numbers will actually pop up - I suspect they added fractal durations to play nice with increased condition duration. There might maybe be a point at which that matters (I doubt it actually would, but eh). As for the golem, thanks for the info, but I rated that rune assuming the golem would be about that strong. Does he still do the thing that Elite Earth Elementals do where he runs off and agros random shit you didn't want? -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 16:09, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
Yup, you were right. Fractional. It's like fractal but with more ion. — snogratUser Snograt signature.png 16:16, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
And note that for such Damage over Time conditions, if it's not a full second, it will not do damage. This means that while a 3 second bleed with a 30% condition duration modifier would display a rounded 4 seconds in-game, but it is still 3.9 seconds and thus only tick 3 times rather than 4. Pika Fan 18:53, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
That's a good thing to note; I didn't realize the tooltips would round durations normally but truncate the actual duration applied. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png 19:47, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
