    Default Just for variety, WORST PVE combo?

    Id say Warden, Purifier, Sentinel

    Especially at the start. Sure you may not die, but you will take forever to kill anything

    This is for solo pve right?

    Then I submit Sab, bard, infilitrator. You use bombs from sab and healing from bard. You will never kill anything and probably die too.

    depends on the level range.

    early levels warden really isn't bad, just boring as hell spamming waterjet. it isn't till 20ish that the fact you do next to no dps catches up to you.

    the people make the worst combo, not the class.

    Any class played right is viable in PVE.

    Archon... and nothing else... don't put points in other souls - heck just roll with a generic archon outta the gate and spend no points even on that - that's be a challenge to survive with ;p

    Yeah, warden is too strong with the waterjet spam. Purifier/sentinel would be pretty bad, but archon may have it beat.

    Wouldn't 20 points in the PvP soul be required for any truly fail PvE build?

    21. Personally I think the Warlord/0 champ/beast guy had something going for him. I levelled a warr as warlord main to around 15 and it was just painful. The pure heal cleric souls really aren't that bad because while they are slow to kill things they never have to stop and random world mobs aren't gonna kill them, ever. (Note: elite invasions running up behind them don't count)

    many war souls have actually quite a few problem at the first levels, especially if they have not a ranged skill for pull...

    first levels as VK are quite painful as the soul lacks good dmg skills and defensive ones too.

    I got level 25 in open beta with Sentinel/Warden/Druid. I pve solod, grouped, and pvp'd with it because I believe it's important to learn your abilities and using it in all situations helps do that.

    Leveling was no problem at all.

    Play as only a Void Knight and it may prove a difficult path.

    leveling from 1-12 with all your points in the assassin rogue tree gets my vote for silliest leveling build.

    Yes I did it on one of my beta builds for grins, yes I knew it was silly however it made 0-15 less of a snorefest as it was actually a challenge to stay alive with more than one npc on you.

    On the other end of the spectrum was leveling druid/justicarshaman Cleric. The fae pulled everything in sight and it didn't matter.. could almost always pull whatever the silly fae pulled.

    ^^

    If you know your tree/skills, then any combo is viable... it might not be OP, but it will do just fine.

    However building your tree wrong, might have a tremendous impact...
