    All Time Best of the Best

    I know these threads usually turn into popularity contests, but I thought it would be fun to see who people consider as the all time best at their class, from any era of the Moors.
    The people who have had the widest gap in skill level between #1 and #2.
    My list only contains people from mid-mirkwood and on, since that is when I arrived here.

    Captain - Grimphore from level 85-95 caps, was far better at controlling fights and being able to solo and win, when no other captains would even try
    Burg - Gwen from lvl 65-75 caps, was the only burg who could straight up fight any creep instead of trick-kiting like all the other ones did
    Warden - Aidak lvl 75-85 caps, could last as long in fights as all the other wardens who only healed themselves, but he also killed most or all the creeps attacking him
    Champ - Shockandawe for the short time he was here, taught champs how to straight up fight creeps instead of AoE kiting, and was a beast to duo with
    Guard - Vinner for DPS/soloing was by far the best guard for just about all the time he played, Belegarod for any sort of grouping situation was always spot on with shield walls.
    LM - Katsimbalis (sp?) from lvl 75-85 caps, played the best technical LM that I have ever seen in the Gladden moors, and Celewyn from lvl 75 cap was the best at solo/small grouping
    Hunter - Viniree from lvl 75-85 caps, I may be biased here since I always grouped with him, but the DPS he put out with how well he was able to stay alive was head and shoulders above anyone else. His target calling was also phenomenal.
    RK - Duruleth from lvl 85 cap was extremely good at DPS, (even though he spent most of his time camping greenies at the slug pits) and Winkey from lvl 85 cap could solo heal better than any healer at the time, be it minnie or RK
    Healing Minnie - Erilen from lvl 85-95 caps could keep anyone alive unless there just way too many creeps to even stand a chance, but if it was even-ish numbers, her group almost always won. Honorable mention to Perch and Clown, who were extremely good back in the earlier days before minnies were changed to become god mode.
    DPS Minnie - Headhunter-1 back in lvl 65-75 caps could kill just about anything he wanted and would always charge in by himself and still managed to get the kill and fairly often come back alive.


    WL - Chaoticevil from lvl 85 cap, duoing with him while on my reaver, we could easily take on most freep groups of under 6 people and win more than we lost. Honorable mention to Novafett, lvl 65 cap, who was alwats able to take on twice his numbers with his small groups and either win or get more kills than he gave.
    Warg - Wolfgash from lvl 65-75 caps, he was the only warg that I knew I was dead if he pounced me, and he was one of the only wargs who would actually pounce me, and not wait for me to ride past and look for an easier target.
    BA - Incendio lvl 85-95 caps, whatever people may say about Tarvin and his QQ, he is by far the best BA that I have ever seen on the server, and would always be willing to trade a death for even one kill, which he quite often did and took on the zerg to get one.
    Defiler - Grog from lvl 85 cap, when defilers were nothing but cannon fodder, Grog could still heal people quite respectably and better than a lot of WLs at the time
    Spider - Braelob from lvl 65 cap, the first time I encountered him when I transferred here he did things I had never seen spiders do and I haven't seen the likes of him since then either.
    Reaver - Slashed from lvl 75-85 caps, who could kill anyone about twice as fast as the next best reaver. Honorable mentions to alot of the reavers from lvl 65 cap... Cyclic, Nazgrel, Optimuss, Hydrain, Kissther, Eltorro, who were all very good players.

    Hopefully we can get some other perspectives and some older players relive their memories too!

    Appreciate the mention Del, though I don't feel deserving, it is appreciated, but idk if we can ever truly proclaim the best of the best, a lot of definitions of what that means as well as a lot of categories. You were definitely one of the best captains to grace gladden in my mind and many others though, my friend, only getting better with time and practice since your arrival from Silverchode, and maintained that consistently. I like to think that some people were the best of the best at one time or another. Some were the best in one era, but when they left, another one stepped up, or even usurped them while they were there. For me personally, I always validated best of the best through solo combat, because that usually chained together towards their overall play and understanding of the class. These threads are nice though when people actually have valid reasons to back up why someone is the best rather than a popularity contest.

    In summation, it be a lot easier to see who the best of the best all time was if they constantly played and kept up a high level of play throughout, always finding ways to win, which is what I always strive to do whenever I played .

    These threads would be great if people could pull from actual memory instead of just recent memory. A lot of superstar players get left off these lists. Not that they care since most are gone but they should certainly be given their due.

    Captain- Aristedies Amalthea.....never seen cappies like these two
    LM- Celewyn(man this guy was a riot and good) The whale himself and VS
    Burg- Gwendalynn, despite despising them for their acts they were good burgs slotho-seredir
    Hunter-no such thing as a good hunter
    Guardian- I have trouble picking these because not many guards stay long enough to be graded.
    Minstrel- Sorry but you will never find another Aneela, Clown or Nirrti
    Warden-Deregorn was tough on his warden when he wasn't completely baked.
    Runkeeper-DPS: Kozzmo(you other rks only wish you could do this) Healing-Gilthonial(dudes just phenomenal)
    Champ-drawing a blank here..

    Warg-Hagzu and Wolfgash mostly because of their play but they would stick it out
    Warleader_Nubbers because everyone else isn't nubbers
    Defiler-poppies and grog
    Reaver Nazgrel Eunuch and that one from sm that im drawing a blank, they would shred you
    weaver-the first one I find squished is the best one Entropy probably because that spider has been a thorn in my side for too many years
    BA-none stand out I guess to me because they always seem to be tied in with boxers or lumped in with them so no one stands out
    Ughidontknow rnk 14 hunter...Tripso rnk 6 burg...Izeatzfreepz rnk 8 warg....Yells rnk 10 warleader

    Haven't played for a while, so whoever has played since RoI and stopped post u13 is left off of these lists

    Hunter; easily Tides, greatest hunter of all time, followed by Vic
    RK; Didgeridoo or Gtoo, both know how to heal and how to DPS. Back before I left though it was Insano
    Champ; One of the guys who transferred onto the server, and then left to one of the bigger ones soon after, I forgot his name as it was 4+ years ago and he was only here for a little bit. I think it started with an A, and Mariuss gets the next best
    Guard; I could never beat Greens on my reaver, honorable mention to Nembet right now though who is a very effective/well geared guardian, and Ikarr was very good in groups as well
    Mins; Shadowthol as a 1v1er forsure, I like the new guy Rockme as a healer though, and Daisy was a good healer before she stopped playing.
    Captain; Gariador, with honorable mentions to Aris and Delt, but Gari was the best support captain out there before he left
    LM; Sowen, but Vindictivesoul is right up there as the best
    Burg; Slotho, but I liked grouping with Java much more
    Warden; Deregorn was very good.

    Warleader; Genbu, and also Angoth
    Reaver; Nazgrel is #1 in my book, but Cyclic (during MoM) and Node (SoA) also were good
    Warg; Killerr and Wolfgash
    Defiler; Poopers
    BA; Didnthurt was the king

    Captain - Close call between Grimphore and Aristeides, Grimphore was a better solo'er but Aris a better raider, imo

    Burg - Gwen/Sippy always gave me the toughest fights. Both of those actually knew how to play burg to the max potential, unlike 90% of the burgs out there.

    LM - Lolno

    Hunter - There's a few good ones, but Sklavorn stuck out to me as a consistently good hunter.

    Guardian - Goes to Nembet, but I didn't really 1v1 back in the day when Vinner was around on his guard, so idk about the comparison there. I have a feeling they'd be pretty damn equal skill level though.

    Minstrel - I know I'll get some grimaces out of this, but Mrmole. He screwed around so much, yet when he actually played seriously he could heal better than any minstrel I've played with since. He had rotations down pat, could work in CC while still healing, etc. etc. And I mean, there's still some great minstrels out there, so it's not for lack of competition.

    Warden - Lolno

    Runkeeper - Gilthonial for healing. Because Gilthonial. Eskemo or Sparkman for dps, I still remember (I think it was lvl 75) Sparkman running around in purple quest gear taking on r10s and winning.

    Champ - Mazzor or Lenovos. I didn't come across Mazzor as often as Lenovos but both gave me a fight for my life.



    Warg - Hagzu, by far. Hagzu never ran, even if death was certain, because he was there for the kills, and damn would he get them.

    Defiler - Lolno

    Warleader - Chaoticevil or Chaosist. Honestly, I really don't know. Both of these guys could keep my reaver up through ungodly amounts of damage.

    Reaver - Slashed, because whenever I ran into Slashed, no matter what class I was on, I knew I had a tough fight ahead of me and probably would die. Del (Iraqandroll) was really good too however.

    Weaver - Lolno

    BA - Lolno

    My list:

    Nubbers

    PS> Thanks for the mentions. Minstrels use to be so much fun because it was harder. Now it's just stupid. I miss the lvl 50-60 days.

    My thoughts exactly, Ustoc. Pretty hard to label anybody best of the best all time with all these new people not knowing some greats. Only really can label some people by era heh, and even then, its all opinions for various different reasons, or no reasons at all . 7 years worth of pvpers, dam it's been a long time (still only 1 map too :P).

    Just because they were the best in SoA doesnt mean they would be the best to this day if they stayed. So its nice and kinda obvious that they'll get switched out with more active players.

    Good thing Shadowthol has played through every expansion since 2007, therefore making him the best.
