Re: Revealing vs Telling mark when soloing
There are seperate issues being mixed in:
- Skirmishes vs landscape (i.e. presence of soldier): Eh, there are just a lot of different situations abounding, I guess, but skirmish discussion in this context tends to be highly formulaic (kill weak ones first for RC, etc.), whereas landscape soloing will give a lot more variety. For example, I regularly soloed orange quest chains in Trollshaws, and in that case, it was Revealing all the way. If you only run Tier 2 and 3 skirmishes, though, and you're the only tank, then I wonder if you'll end up using Revealing more.
- Your traiting: HoH and MC self-heal negates the need for Revealing in a lot of situations, so that's not going to be a good direct comparison. I personally run 3/2/2 without MC heal because I want the archer herald, which is decent DPS already.
- Survival vs. DPS playstyle: Some captains even like soloing with s&b, and I'm not going to mock them because that's their business. Again, there's a difference between talking about skirmish grinding for marks (speed is your only concern) and trying to complete whatever quests that may have sigs, be above your level, whatnot.
