Default Ranger need to weave if they got unlimited mp ?

Was going to post this in general forum until I realize it was specify to ranger class weaving in this means only 2h weapons and short cd skills and fast attack speed,chanter = not enough skills to spam glad,temp too slow attack speed sin = dw so we will not talk about them.

I've found out the main point of weaving is pretty much about saving mana so in long run more mana = non stop using skills longer battle = more dps what I want to know is for short battle or got sw to supply mana do I really need to weave or spam skills doing just about same or better ? spamming is less tired too and more fun imo.

It's not about mana. Mana is irrelevant. Nobody runs out of mana with potion and drink use and any serious PVE has one songweaver.

It's the fact that you can cancel your auto attack animation with a skill and sneak in an auto attack. It's extra damage. You get an auto attack for free. It adds up over time.

You don't need to weave everything in every circumstance. Ranger is about burst so you can skill mash but you're going to need to weave a lot because the Slideshot mechanic of rangers relies on weaving auto attacks in while in the air to move while using skills.

ALMOST HAD IT.


You don't need to auto attack to slide shot, nor is the mechanic reliant on auto attacking. I've taught Mufferlmanz and Zeromi about this. It's a common misconception that you need to auto attack or cancel a function to slide shot. It does make it a lot easier to do so though.


You weave for damage. It is free extra damage. Properly used, you will do more damage at the same speed as skill spamming. The mechanic behind the timing of WHEN you should weave is displayed in game by pressing P by default.


Anyone who skill spams is bad or lazy, or a mixture of the two. Which is basically everyone at the game just about, both NA and Korea and EU.

As a cloth I will say rangers are by far the most annoying class. Somehow almost every skill you have makes my casting stop. But when you weave an auto attack in between skills them auto attacks are somehow worse. They always stun/knock back.
