Re: Dear Wardens:How to fight in the Moors?
Two words for you: Mastery skills. You still have to melee to get it off, but you can get at least one or two gambits off without having to touch the creep to build the gambits.
That being said, if you do manage to take the warg down, they'll be yelling out on the creep OOC channel and you'll be kited and DoT'd down in short order when you try to run.
No, Wardens don't necessarily pwn in the Moors even though we're generally an awesome solo class, because creeps do what NPCs generally never do -- run away. Our range is lacking, so we can't engage in range wars like hunters, loremasters, minstrels, runekeepers, our stealth is **** so we can't go out with burglars, Conviction is nice but it's nothing even approaching how a Captain can buff/heal or how a Guardian can shield-wall (and survive being stunned with heavy armour) and we don't even begin to approach the damage (or suvivability) of a Champion. Wardens just don't do well in the Moors.
Some Wardens really like running with big groups, they focus on traited War-cry (up to 10 targets) and Desolation (up to 3 targets) to AoE fear casters to interrupt creep heals while tossing out Conviction. It's just not enough for me to feel like I'm really adding something to the group, though. All our javelin skills are nice -- I can get at least a few points of damage off on about every creep that dies so I leech more reknown from the raid than the poor guardians do, but I just don't like leeching reknown, I like to feel that I'm really earning it, so I don't go to the Moors anymore (and I haven't gone for months now, except with the Moors map so that I can horse out and be dropped off right by the Rivendell stables instead out in front of Rivendell when I'm trying to get down to south Eregion).
As a level 1 burglar, Bilbo got a pony when he joined the Smaug The Dragon raid. Then he asked for leadership, looted the chest, assigned himself the 1st age Arkenstone and mailed it to an alt (Bilbo's a VIP so can mail from anywhere). They did some PvMP and an Epic Battle, then he apologized and gave the Arkenstone back. He kept the pony.
