Of course the guides for OP classes arrive first ... No surprise here ... Move on ...
Wow, way to be a **** dude. The guy mains a shadow and is the #1 shadow so he thought he'd put something out there to help all members of the community. Now you know the reasoning behind it so now try to find ways to counter it, evolve to counter the current meta it doesn't matter if the class is OP or not it's not this guys fault that it is the class he has mained for a long time. If you want a guide so badly for GS why don't you make one your self or ask the best players that stream, I believe Cryyc is coming back so there is always that
you know you want to

Also bro i'm sure you thought about it, but why not make some instructional vids to correspond with your guide. Its one thing for people to read it, but another for them to see it.

I was going to do that with the "Maps" section, showing detailed breakdowns of how to use each map to the fullest.

Thanks, Kre’a.

I find as a tank, it is hard for me to choose what I want to put as a Focus Target – the foe’s DPS, or friendly heals/most likely to be focused DPS, so I can swap quickly with the modifier. Looking at your text though, I am wondering if I should keep Focus on the friendly as it is easier to pre-set, and start using the Target’s Target to track the party member getting focused. It’s something I had on my L2 list before I took a break from my tank.

I am looking forward to the section on the maps once it’s finished, even though I don’t play a Shadow. But the Arena maps were never fully explored strategically, so it will be helpful to see it from the PoV of someone who literally saw each one hundreds of time (scary, I know).

We really need a sticky or a resource page with the PvP Specific Guides. Zetsuma-Vesev’s Guardian, Hottie’s Scop Heals…. These things tend to get lost in the class fora.

I too wonder at this need to sabotage anything good. Boggles the mind….
Deal.

Nice guide, thanks. I won't be dusting mine off, but definitely pointed out some good tips for helping me better counter the ones I run into.

I have updated the maps section in the original post in the shadow forums, but i will update it here too, for QoL for the lazy . It is best to have a hotkey to acquire Target's target as well as Acquire Focus Target's Target, and have a focus target set to a heavy hitting dps, this will net you the most protection per match.

The movement speed is actually a good utility, but is more effective in Drception than Hatred because Deception has no rotational slows or roots while Hatred does have a root in it's core damage rotation. Also, it sounds like you don't take the knockback root, which is truly valuable, as I will explain later when I finish updating the "Maps" section of the guide.
i take the knockback root because it is 5 sec roots which huge , i will follow your skill tree krea , thank you for your guide
