If someone wants to go single school, what to get?
Hello everybody.

Let us go with the hypothesis that someone wants to play a single school mage (with LM, GM, Witchcraft and SC on the side).
What school would you go for and why?


My take / analysis of schools:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I'm no PvP expert, and that's just my personal experience/take on schools. And my ratings are aimed at using the school without other of "big" schools.

I'm sure I'm missing something as I keep hearing people water is good, but I can't stand slow projectiles... and that is why I welcome any and all comments, even if all you have to say is "GSO, get better" ;)
Thank you.

I think water is fine just gotta get used to the projectile speed. The stam drain is rly nice so you can't go wrong against melee pusher
I really like air atm, also because using air increase your stormblast and your come hither level. But still not convinced by the r50, still using fireball

Probably air magic because greatclub power attack also has good stamina drain.  Cheap regs for new character.  (Ray goes through walls/trees..lol)

 If not air, then necromancy or GM for obvious reasons. (Mixed: Blinds, arcane damage, dot's, hp leech, hp debuff, etc..., and even least annoying casting animation/coolest sounding )

Though, i can see myself changing schools for particular scenarios/stages of the game.

The necro school is just a bad joke (actually)

how to play - and be a good (and rare) necromonger - GW 1 made it nearly perfect

Honestly doesnt matter what school u use.. If u can land your spells, then it dont matter.

Maxed all, used all, none stands out.

GW1 best game ever. If we ever had gw1 skill diversity and balance in df it would be best game ever made.
Its impossible tho.

They really need to rename it to Dark Magic or something along those lines. There currently is no actual necromancy in the Necromancy magic school.
