Default gladiator pvp stigma build.

http://aion.yg.com/stigma-planner#3:....1:140000327.1

this good? meant purely for end game pvp. i looked around and nyerk but couldn't find any legit builds or w/e. i ref'd to good glads like goldenrice nd raidou, but it seems the build goldenrice has on atm is a pve build. i'm rerolling asmodian glad from elyos assassin so bare with me plz and give me some advice on what stigmas i should use at 55 for pvp and if the build i have atm is good or not.

i know that unwav devotion and ankle snare are rly good stigmas for glad, and i heard that piercing rupture was good too.

I'm going to assume this is the general cookie-cutter build setup.


I personally switched out Tendon Slice and Piercing Rupture for Adv Dualwielding II and Sharp Strike.

It's more effective imo.

For Air Pvp yes and even then, why would you ditch tendon slice. throw out draining blow for air pvp and keep tendon slice. You don't really need sharp strike on the ground. You KD stuff and just weave til everything is off CDs.

I don't need tendon slice and find myself rarely using it.


It doesn't do that much damage, maybe 100 more than sharp strike come pvp wise, and just isn't that great for me as it is for everyone else.


If you had a GG item that you could potentially burst someone down fast enough then sure, it'd be good.

But when you don't, and it requires 10+ hits to kill someone, well I like sharp strike :)


It's a lot easier to weave with it too.



I honestly just don't see why I would use Tendon slice, I may pvp differently then others, the Root isn't as useful as some may seem. I'm always running. I use ankle snare solely to catch up to people, I don't care if its on them or not, but if I'm within range, I wouldn't root you.

Don't really know how to word it, just, rooting you while in range is more of a negative effect for me. I simply found I never use it other than purely burst damage, and it doesn't do much more than sharp strike, and sharp strike has a shorter cooldown + easier execution to weave.

Yup, that's a good setup. Same one I use.

That is the cookie cutter build and for good reason. I've tried other variations and found this to be the most useful in PVP. You asmos have an easier choice as you got PR so you will have to slot that. Elyos have to decide between earthquake wave, howl, adv dw for pve for that last slot.

Pretty good build! But at end game I have noticed that improved stamina doesnt seem to help as much as say 50 or earlier. I am thinking of doing that build minus improved stamina and putting in howl. I swear howl helps a lot vs temps and sins especialy when they are focusing your healer.

Also I kind of think your build should be determined by whether you group or solo pvp more... or are a dredge hero

stamina works the same way, the parry buff isnt noticeable like in 2x or 3x, but the regen and max hp boost works on % of you base hp, but we'll need to remove it after 2.5 because it will share cd with 2nd wind (will be 3min cd too) and we'll gain the aoe vamp.


i dont mind sharp strike is a good choice, for pvp at least, since we have enough burst to kill a squishy class in less than 1 rotation, and against other plate u'll need to kite their cds sometimes, and in other case you can weave...i dont mind changing tendon slice, great burst, imob works well and is a great bait to make other glads use strenght wings thinking they got snared by ankle, then after that you can ankle them and smash it up, and in my case, especially because i dont have extendable removing tendon isnt a good choice.

btw, i personally like shattering wave in last slot, increasing damage on cleaves is always good, earth wave is a great choice too, but personally i prefer sw instead it, maybe i'll change it again :|
