Aside from 4 of us swimming in lava at one point due to overenthusiastic use of FGS on a narrow ledge, we had a good run. Followed by SE1 where 4 FGS made the 3 golems melt in a little under a second.
    I would just like to point out that the only one NOT swimming in lava was me!

    Which basically tells us you should be faster at grabbing that FGS!

    It is pretty incredible that despite all the things Anet has managed to 'fix', FGS has remained un-nerfed. Surely it's only a matter of time?

    Potentially, but I'm not sure what they're supposed to do about it. One possibility would be to reduce the number of ticks/second or the damage per tick of the #4/rush, but no matter in which way they reduce the damage output of that skill, the result will most definitely hurt the intended use more than any exploit. Also, I'm beginning to question the technical capabilities and/or fervor of the devs. It's like in Goethe's Zauberlehrling/The Sorcerer's Apprentice: "The spirits that I've cited, My commands ignore." (or sth. like that) It's probably pretty laborious to change an existing mechanic as a side-project that someone has spent a lot of time implementing before the initial release of the game.

    that may be true, although the main advantage of FGS is when you are rushing against wall (and without a target), one way they could nerf it without touching the damage per tick would be to end the rush when you hit a solid object. This would also help with other rush skills in game.

    I would put it past their programming skills to do that.

    They seem to give very little priority to PVE balance, which is essentially what the FGS issue is. If it was causing a serious PVP problem it would have been changed a year ago. I don't think they view this as a problem. As a lot of high end content is kind of balanced for this now (try to do the 3-head wurm without FGS DPS) then there will either be unintended consequences, or a fix will be much harder to do than just "nerf FGS 4"

    It was a PvP problem, which is way they removed the rush+blink.

    Exactly - so FGS is probably "working as intended". As the most gratuitous example of lack of PVE balance many think that it should be changed, but as long as it does not in their view unbalance the economy or PvP then ANet won't make changes (like fractal rewards, TP flipping, precursor RNG, OP warriors etc).

    Not really playing that much anymore, but if you set a date for Arah I would help out.

    Thx Malawi. Interesting (probably a bug) that scarlet potions work on nightmare court but not dredge/flame legion. Shame nothing works on Mossman as he is evil.

    We don't know if Scarlet slaying works on Flame Legion yet. The ones with 'verify' at the front are supposed to be requests for verification. Surely there was no way to make this wording less confusing.

    Sorry, I was going from (much older) posts I read a week or so ago on this topic which said nightmare court yes, dredge no and FL no:
    https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/foru...scarlet-armies
    As the new research confirmed the first 2, I assumed the FL would be the same also. I am quite happy to be proved wrong though.
