Usage

General

  • As the superior bow user, it is your job to sit as far away from enemies and allies as possible. Use your arrows to pierce the hearts of your enemies!
  • If a reflect or projectile block is put down, you must shoot as many arrows as possible in to it! That is the only way to break through!
  • If a commander or player insults your class in team chat, it is your sworn duty to report these players and defend yourself in team chat for the next 30-60 minutes. A reddit thread is also customary describing the horrible bias of these scumbuckets.
  • Make sure your pet is on Passive. Mr Bearington is a vital part of your roleplaying capabilities. If your bear dies, ensure to spend at least 30 seconds petting and comforting him after the fight.
  • If you see an enemy in front of the others, this is most likely their commander. As part of your oath to the ranger corps, you must make it your sole duty to fill this mere mortal with the arrows of a thousand furries! Continue to shoot him until all life and hope is drained from his body.

Honestly, I would rate it 6/5 if there was a setting for it. Excellent self sustain, 1500+ range, and single target sniping pressure--what else do you need? Not to mention the utilization of the tankiest land pet means you don't have to worry about keeping it alive. However, due to its high learning curve I would not recommend it for Ranger players under intermediate skill.

I have been playing Bearbow for ages and still couldn't master it, it's a very high skill cap and APM build - especially Blue's version with double bears which is very ambitious, for beginners I wouldn't recommend pet switching just yet, it's too taxing on the mind. Even my own server is afraid of my unbridled fury when I play this as they are avoiding me like the danger I am.

The most OPTIMAL and skilled build for WvW gameplay. Great for veterans and beginners alike! This build is best played on walls or cliffs, but also excels at PPTing!

The bestest most op build you can possibly play in wvw. Perfect for casuals, noobs, hardcorrers and anet employees alike. You should stop wvwing if you don't play this build.

This build is amazing. You can shoot and kill the enemies in wvw maps with 0 effort. Players are a bit harder but all you have to do is shoot them and they will usually run away or log off. This build is great for sieging too. I shot at the wall and flipped stonemist castle. Very quality high skill build. Not like those cheesy scourges. I wish more rangers were on my wvw team
