Default 7min UW Meta

As we all know Guild Wars 2 is on the way, and there is very high chances we only have a few more months of Guild Wars 1. The general question is : When was your favorite time frame of Guild Wars? The answer to a lot of Player Vs Environment people is the 7min UW meta. Many people wish for some more time to enjoy this.

Is this an even reasonable topic? I think the chances are slim, but you will never know in till we try.

The problems now are -
Shadow Form - You need additional skills to stay alive. (Old, invincible to all except signets + touch skills)
Dhuum/Skeletons/2009 Halloween update - An extra enemy + additional time to complete.
Sliver Armor - Longer to kill.
Damage Buff - Nerfed. Enough said.
Activation times - Added a stack.
Mindblades - They now how Leech Signet.


Now, changing all these back would result in lots of Speedclear changes. Although it's easy to make a cap to just UW.

A possible theory I advised would be :

Just like the Normal Mode & Hard Mode buttons. PM stands for Pre meta. This function will only exist in the 3 Underworld access points. Try using it to gain entrance to FoW, or outside the outpost will not allow you. A solution like this would not change the whole entire game again, and you will still have a chance to do UW old meta if you like. Click HM, then PM button, or unclick it to take it off.

Leave a comment on what you think, and a +1, or -1.

would like to see the 600/smite build come back into a more usable skill combo.
I mean lets face it the only thing nerfing sf and the 600 builds did was stop the average player from doing what the sc guys do still and hasn't balance anything.In fact it created a real elitism faction within the game and I don't think that anet want to acknowledge that.


There are alot of players out there that don't play a sin and don't enjoy it so either a change for a few classes would be in order , not just the sins.

It's an interesting thought. For a lot of people it would mean dusting off their 600/smites and other farming builds. However I feel like it would just be exploited for faster UW runs and would drive the ecto price even lower because of the increased supply.

You know there are more than 3, right?

I would love to do this, even without drops like AJ said. It's not gonna happen unless someone hosts a private server, though.

i agree with AJ, even without the drop just the fun of those old runs would bring a lot of us back to UW.

And I want RoJ to kill everything radar radius wide with a cinematic of a low orbit ion cannon ! Oh and LoD to get a secret door directly to Urgoz ! And a black rock candy which makes you run 300%, indestructible and blast through DoA doors like a godlike Ursan ! And I want shove to turn back the jade sea to water when you use it against Kanaxai in memory of King Sause !

Can you do it Anet ? Please ? For me ? *puss in boots eyes thingy*

I'm not the one trolling in the first place. Do you REALLY think that Anet people have time to go though all kinds of programming shit for something TOTALLY irrelevant that just 15 guys want just a few months before GW2's release ? Seriously ? You must be joking.

*THIS IS NOT SERIOUS*


"Sure, i would love to be able to farm eaven more ecto that i can flood the market with /sell for IRL cash, go me!!!11"


NO.
We dont need shadow form to be reverted to what an awful skill it was.
And im not saying this because "you cant do UW" "u dont have a sin" ect, i do, and i did farm alot of uwsc.
It would break the broken game eaven more.

This here. maybe no drops during the run, but the end chest would be a yes for me

Pre-dhuum was my era, it was fun and easy, which by that time in the game I wanted to do was have fun, didnt care about a challenge, just chillin with my buddies.

Which brings me to the even older uwsc days, when eles where were boss Right as I got my ele's vanguard to r10 assassins came into the picture.

Oh how i miss it D:

This would be possible very quickly if ANet released the compiled server program.
