Hey all I've been playing Archeage with this build for quite a while. I've changed and refined things as I've seen fit. Tell me what you think

The plan is to duel wield one-handed axes and to wear heavy armor with agility moonstones attached. I've also thought about going for leather armor but I'm not sure if it will make me too squishy for my liking.

I would take prestigiditation over pull-over, cause it'd give more burst. And you should take Energy Shield over Energy Explosion, for more survivability. You have to move Multistrike for Instantaneous Impact, cause it's a staple for Politician build.

something like: Politician Build (www.archeage-impact.de/index.php?site=talentplaner_eng&action=jumpIn&talents=011110011011001017111001011110001030010100 101000000)

I've re-looked at some of these skill based on your suggestions. What do you think about it now?

Last passive of Finesse skill tree is must-have for that build, if you are going to open the 4-hit-Combo and 35 level skill in Finesse.

And why do you have both Shadowstep and Bolt of Heaven? You are gonna use them to get closer to enemy and i believe one of them is enough to do that, also you have the Fast Movement, so...

I would rather taking %8 Damage instead of %4 Speed.

You might also want to get the second last passive (Parrying) of Warfare skill tree, it might be useful.

You NEED Backflip, shadowstep, or fast movement (you gonna get kited without). Inhibition okay at low-level, but at end-game, lose it. Not sure if anyone told you this, but pull-over is useless in pvp, I even have a pvp templar (aka soldier build) that doesn't even involve pull-over. I'm sorry, but this build has points into the wrong skills, and calling need it's STAPLE (i.e backflip, shadowstep, and fast movment) skills.

EDIT: Please, go watch pvp videos of politicians. You'll get a better look at how fast they drop, and what you need to make it viable, your build is not viable at end-game, because politician is a very niche build from the start. At end-game, after i max those 3 trees, I plan on leveling protection, so i get invited to end-game instances and become useful, I'll show that temp build btw...

Rough Draft: Soldier Build (not sure if prestidigitation is necessary, because i have turning blades, and Blockade. (www.archeage-impact.de/index.php?site=talentplaner_eng&action=jumpIn&talents=011110011111100112111000101001011030010000 110000000)

Ok I think I got something that will work better I just have two questions.
http://arche-base.com/builds/view/94-Survivalist_Melee_PVP_build#1.8.4/8SavSmkvCCr

1. What is the point of having Instantaneous Impact. Having two spam skills feeling redundant and Triple blow is deals more damage. I can get my 20 deathwish stacks from multistrike and hard cut.

2. I see that the Rage skill has a combo that keeps you from being stunned at the end. I have looked everywhere and cannot find any skill that applies the condition required for the combo. Any idea what it is?

Edit: Ignore question #1 I just learned ingame that the exhaustion debuff from instantaneous impact combos with multistrike the same as weakening from triple strike. switched.

This is my finalized Politician build. What do you think, GangstaSora? I think your last build was the best one I've seen so far.

Politician Build(PvP): Build (www.archeage-impact.de/index.php?site=talentplaner_eng&action=jumpIn&talents=011110011111001117111001001110001030000100 101000000)

Soldier Build (PvP):Soldier Build (www.archeage-impact.de/index.php?site=talentplaner_eng&action=jumpIn&talents=011110011111000112111011100000001130010100 110000000)

I stress these are for pvp, you have to move things around to make them viable for pve.

EDIT: Maybe lose weaponwind for another passive, but which?

The last passive in calling gives you double deathwish stacks. It's a must have, especially if you aren't going for multistrike or hard cut.

so remove weaponwind for deathwill? Seems like a good call, thanks.
