Default W/N player; I need help with Heros

I have been away from the game for a long time and was coming back to play through the campaigns before guild wars 2 comes out. I am in the southern shiverpeaks in proph but i skipped ahead to nightfall so i could get heros. my main goal is to beat all the campaigns as quickly as possible with as little dieing as possible. Right now i am having trouble keeping my group alive in the harder content and when i look through the skills i am just overwhelmed.

currently i am running FGJ, power strike, sever artery, gash, frenzy, rush, dolyak sig

this is suppsoe to be a hundred blades build =P but i dont have it yet and no fast way to get it. i have 4 heros right now, i use koss and the two monks with their base bars.

any help would be appreciated.

Not sure how long you've been away from the game, and whether it was before the introduction of Tomes. You could buy an Elite Warrior Tome to unlock 100 Blades (around 3 or 4k I think), which would get you the skill instantly. Working through NF is probably a good idea for the heroes, and PvE skills (namely Whirlwind Attack). Your 100b bar should ideally look like:

100b
Whirlwind Attack
Sun and Moon Slash
FGJ!
Flail

The rest is pretty optional. You can keep Sever Artery + Gash. Ideally you would take the Kurzick/Luxon skill "Save Yourselves!" but that requires some playing through Factions.

Before you spend any money on tomes remember they only teach skills if they have been unlocked on your account by another character.

You said you are in the southern shiverpeaks. Prophecies does have some decent warrior elite skills. You can capture Warrior's Endurance in the Crystal Desert, which is suitable for a number of builds since its in the strength attribute line. Or capture Earth Shaker, which is a hammer elite, in several places in the Shiverpeaks. Since you are low on cash, I'd go with Warrior's Endurance so you dont have to worry about buying a new weapon for yourself.

As to your heroes, do you have enough skills unlocked to make them worthwhile? You may want to fall back on the henchmen until you have money and skills to properly equip heroes. Henchmen got an update a while back and had their usefulness increased from what it was previously.

If you do go with heroes, you can unlock 2 additional ones easily in Nightfall through 2 quests. The first: 'Zaishen Elite' is given by Field General Hayao in Sun Docks and unlocks either a ranger or an elementalist. The other 'All for One and One for Justice' is given by Dinja in Consulate Docks and unlocks a necromancer.

yea what happened was i sto playing then started again when NF and Factions came out. i mostly just pvped so i never beat any of the camps and i bought the all skills unlock from the GW store, so i should have all skills for heros. when i look at my heros skills the list does seem lite, i may have to buy a few.

still havent figured out how to make dual profession heros. i have currently unlocking heros, i'm trying to get 8 before i do anything else - i lost koss though so i'm looking for him right now =P

i was thinking of going to grab warr end too, i have cleared the desert already and shouldnt be too hard to go back and grab it.

The hero second profession is easy to do, there is a pull down menu for it in the upper part of the hero skill selector, next to where is says 'Profession', just scroll down that and select whatever secondary you want for the hero. As for builds, the site for common builds these days is http://www.gwpvx.com/PvX_wiki

i looked through there but wasnt too sure what builds my heros should have to support 100b build warrior. i know skills like splinter weapon, barbs, and mark of pain are good but i'm kind of stuck there.

There is the perfect team build and there is the team build that will get you through the content. Later when you have rit and necro heroes unlocked, you can switch to the great team builds that include splinter weapon, mark of pain, barbs, etc. They are meant to get you thru the hardest content in the game, hard mode dungeons and the like.

Right now, you're doing Prophecies normal mode storyline. I would take the 2 monk heroes and set them both up with skills from the healing prayers line, the reasoning is that the hero AI is terrible at protection unless you micro manage their skills. Make sure both heroes have hex remove skills since there are a number of foes casting hexes in the southern shiverpeaks. I would not use the hero warrior for now, melee heroes have their drawbacks: they spend a lot of time chasing kiting foes and dont get many hits in.
(Advanced players can build teams around melee heroes with good results but they are, well, advanced) Fill up the remainder of the party with the ranger and caster henchmen that are available in outposts. Avoid the warrior henchmen. So take Reyna, Orion, Claude and Dunham. That makes a team of 7, so add whatever hero you still have left to level it to 20.

ok thats more clear. so for right now just play through using ranged/casters then change there builds for late game runs.

i dont uderstand all the name conventions for these team names, what should a 100b warrior be looking for? is ROJway good?

Look at www.gwpvx.com for builds. Simply substitute any skills you don't have until you can buy them from the skill trainer. The hero skill trainer will covers skills you need on heroes for the most part.
