I was terrible at Fredzw's warrior. Anyone have any decent recommendations for running that build? I couldn't really close very well on targets that had any kiting ability. Maybe I'm just spoiled by using thief and greatsword/rifle warriors...

Only been running a mesmer for a short while recently but the more I use staff and get used to it the more I like it.

The big thing is that you can stack up a lot of status effects and you need to remember that your clones (not phantasms) will do the same basic attack you do with your staff except without the direct damage. This means that if you quickly create 3 clones and let them attack once, you can get 4 status effects on your target very quickly.

Your '2' skills fairly low CD (especially with 20% image generate trait) that can also be used as a dodge is nice, and when in combo with your '5' skill GIVES you chaos armor (your '4' skill as well) so by using CD's you can give yourself a bit of defensive buffs while putting conditions on your target.

Their '3' skill allows you to create some phantasms that deal a nice amount of damage that scales +10% per different status effect (works well with a necro duo), while also letting you shatter them and then create a new set of images for additional burst (especially useful since phantasms seem to attack then pause for a bit so if you time your shatter right after they attack once you can get in some decent burst when they may not be expecting it).

Anyway that's just my thoughts, I have been super busy recently and havn't had much time to practice but I would suggest trying to run it at least for a while just to get used to it/see what it can do. Sometimes you may find an odd combo that feels awkward but just works fairly well/gives you that extra utility that enemies arn't expecting.

Yah I'm having a hell of a time finding a build I like for my guardian in any kind of PvP environment; whether it be WvW or sPvP. I love it for running dungeons and many of the builds are - at minimum - functional but I just can't seem to find one I really think is extremely effective in either situation really. By either situation I mean dungeons or WvW/sPvP. It's almost hard for me to explain, they all come across as "getting by" but I can't find one that is just superb to me. I've spent WAY more time on it than any of my other 80s and I always feel like I'm doing just enough - kind of like a lack of specialization I guess. My other 80's can tank better, or heal more, or do more damage, etc. but my guardian is just kind of like an old-reliable kind of guy if that makes sense; he'll heal a bit, do some damage, tank a bit, but never really exceed at them. It could just be me but I feel that way with all the builds I've seen or built myself....

http://intothemists....n-bunker-build/ danto is one of the best guards in the game, this is a video about his sPvP build. He plays for team curse. Although maybe you've already checked it out since its on the list. I suggest watching his stream if you're not finding success with the build.

I just want to say I followed your advice and copied his build. My 80 guardian went from my least played character to one of my favorites again. I had most of it very similar but was using the wrong weapons. I can't thank you enough! I spent a ton of hours on my guardian to essentially just completely sideline him; I had kind of given up hope. Honestly I wish I would of found this before I purchased my commander tag because I enjoy this new build so much that I wish it were on my guardian.

As a side note this list is extremely useful to people and I have done my best to send as many people to your site as I can to support it.

only thing that concerns me about the war build is no stability for stomps, other than that it looks good. I would just replace one of the utilities with balanced stance.

I play this class since the day 1 of the game. Balanced Stance is incredible useless with this build... there is no point in having a 8 sec stability with a 40 second cooldown... stunner class such as the Warrior Stunner or the Engi or Ele support could stun you so many times that 8 sec stability is a completly useless skill. By the way, Endure Pain and Frenzy are both break stun skill.

With my build all movement skills break immobilize, so you have 3 skill to break immobilize... Whirlwind, Rush and Bull's Charge.... this build provide the MAX damage of the warrior... you wont find anything better to deal damage.

I've seen the warrior build posted before and i think that have so many things that are completly useless....

Mending is a healing skill that heal not so much and also cure condition.... ohhh come on... cure 2 condition every 25 sec? Ahahahahah
Conditioner characters deal you 10 condition in 10 sec.... do you realy think that heal 2 of them every 25 sec is useful? Warrior CAN'T heal condition... your team mates has to do it for you... when you need it...

The Axe is NOTHING compared to the powerfull of the rifle... that provides a warrior to even do kyting on the target... and deal up to 10K damage in sPvP with killshot and up to 16K in WvW... You MUST play RIfle in a warrior DPS..

The sigil of bloodlast is useless in PvP or WvW... expecialy in a full DPS character... because you lose all stacks when downed... and even if you are so skilled to resist alive for 25 kill (IT WONT HAPPEN XD)... 25 stacks of bloodlust do not provides you more damage then the sigil of fire... that is about 1500 DMG AOE each proc... proc about every 5/6 sec...

Endure Pain is a skill that MUST be played... a warrior full damage is usualy focused as f***... so you have to play Endure When focused... and leave centre of combat using movement skills... and swich on rifle... rifle can do also an incredible damage.... when they come for you ... you can swich on GS and play whirlwind to attack in evasion trought them... and rush with no target to leave on the other side and stay ranged with rifle again... so they start running around for you while your party hit them... and they probably stop to focus on you ... when they see that you are not possible to be focused more... you regained a lot of health with Healing SIgnet and so you can come back in GS at the centre... it's a movement gameplay... and it's fantastic...

Trust me... it's 2 mounth i play this build self made... in WvW it's even more powerful... and a lot of player in WvW or sPvP asked me for that build... and all of them found that awesome. Trust me ^^

PS: Looking at Fredzw's Warrior build... http://www.intothemi...S7X7ZF18ZF184Bs

Why Discipline Master Trait VI if you don't use any signet? XD
Btw i absolutly don't like shouter warrior... but it's just point of view ^_^

You use it for "Finishing" a downed player in tournament play and getting off your burst skills without being cc'd. Its not useless, its point is to last long enough to get your burst and stomp off in 5's. Sure for WvW use enduring pain, but this thread is "Top Tournament Builds". Mending is used to remove cripple or any other cc. Fredzw's build was from when you could swap elites in a match. So you would swap to sig elite if you needed. I updated it since you can no longer do so.

In sPvP i do not risk to do not finish my burst skill because i get stunned but because enemyes play break stun or invulnerability or something like that... to finish a target there are other classes that can do... warrior don't have to finish the target.... warrior have to do DPS... there are so many bunker ele... bunker thief... bunker guardian bunker engi and many other that can finish a target... warrior have to deal damage... 8 second stability with 40 second cooldown is a useless skill... i could try to play different my warrior if the game let you make a build to deal big damage and at least 2 skill to provide stability... or less cooldown... but 8 second for 40 second is realy pointless compared to a 5 second invulnerability that also break stun... on a full DPS character that is use to be focused.

And btw mending removes 2 condition... as i said 2 condition in this game is ridicolous... you will get crippled so many times that mending is completly useless... 1 single skill to remove condition can't gives to the warrior a different tactics to play... because it's a single use and you usualy get crippled again... if you are crippled you just have to swich on rifle.... no need to cure it with mending... losing a more powerful healing skill... as the healing signet.

I can't in any case agree in using mending or the stability skill... if you like to speak more about this you can add me in the game.

It's DARCYLL ...

I'm fine with agreeing to disagree, considering the warriors with the most qualifier points in both EU and NA use the skills you call "useless" often. I think a lot of builds and skills are viable, but to call balanced stance and mending useless on a melee class that needs to avoid being cc'd to stay on target is a little ridiculous... However, I'm glad you posted your build and I hope others can give it a shot and see if it works for them. I'd also think about 10 points in tactics to pick up the adept trait I leg specialist and you don't need to keep saying btw "Endure Pain and Frenzy are both break stun skill." or "And btw mending removes 2 condition..." I entered the data for the entire calculator and anyone who takes tournament play seriously understands what skills stunbreak and how many conditions mending removes ><.

I just explaind the effect of skills and traits even if all player know just to let you know my point.... not because i think u don't know those things.

I can also say that i know that melee class have to avoid cc xD

Anyway no problem... i just don't mind if people who reported those build are on 1st position in sPvP or not... i'm not in the ladder because i don't play sPvP so much... i prefer WvW... i've met so many player rank 60 or more and duel aganist... they all said "can't belive you are rank 12 ... is that your second account?"

So... even 1st player can lose... or change is build in something better. So pls don't defend your point saing that expert people use that build... because that means nothing.

If you wanna defend a point sai something we can speak about. Something you know about warrior combat.

I play tourneys every day, I ahve around 1500 hours of pvp gameplay and I have to say that a build without stability or even better a team that doesn't use stability will loose most of the 2v2-3v3 fights all time. Stability is one of the msot important things when it comes to downed states. Being able to stomp a guardian with stability can save you almost 5 seconds of time where you could actually save your teammates from being stomped.

so i'm guessing the fred shout war rarely uses hundred blades because of the lack of quickness or is there a trick that i'm unaware of?

First off, great collection of builds. Thanks for your hard work in compiling them.

However, one must wonder how up to date are they? Anyway we can get a time-stamp as to when they were added in the future?

Moreover, what are your sources exactly?

Thanks in advance!
