Build doesn't have enough condition removal or Stability. Furthermore, the Stability is too predictable and the build has no active stun breaks. In other words, if you go up against any defensive condition stacking player (e.g. conditionmancer, leaping troll blossom Thief or flame thrower Engineer) or go up against an experienced CC orientated player, you are screwed.

If you want to be a great point defender, i.e. you want to hold against a single player indefinitely and multiple opponents for a substantial time, this is not the way to go. The build needs to be more defensive (needs banner or shouts), have at least one form of active Stability (i.e. Balanced Stance), should be control orientated to mitigate damage and should have Rampage in. Rampage is generally not a great elite, however, one of the things it is really useful for is point defence.
thank's for the tips, so far in tourneys i don't really go up against any high CC/condition  players, but that could be because alot of tourney teams are made up randomly, the only proffesions that really give me trouble are mesmers and some thiefs (if they know what they're doing) I will deffinatley consider what you said though and change some things, but in public servers this build is fun regardless :)

Stats
32.7% crit chance (27% + 5.7% from signet mastery)
175% crit damage


Forgive my stupidity. But..... uhhhhh...... where is this 175% crit damage coming from.  Build link shows crit damage is only 25%.  So.... where is the other 150% damage coming from?

While Im waiting for a response, ill just add the build ive been using here in the meantime.

http://gw2skills.net...4lwLLOuuk4sIYQA


Basically with 2 runes of monk/ 2 runes of water,  my signet of rage is near perma, only a 4-5 second down time.

This means im running with near perma swiftness, perma fury, and perma might.

With the reduced cooldown of signets traited, signet of fury is up every 24 seconds, granting me the ability to do a full adrenaline killshot anytime I need one, but because im also traited for my burst skill to cost less, im still at near full adrenaline most of the match anyways, triggering more crits and higher dps in general.

When things get too tough, just hit fear me and switch to sword/shield.  While they are feared start bailing out with your perma swiftness, make sure you deselect any targets, and use sword 2 for a quick lunge to get even further away, then hit shield stance to tank any last damage, then use sword 2 again for more distance if needed.

As Usual, the basics of the build is to utilize your perma fury to crit the hell out of people, and when the time is right, hit "On my Mark", Signet of Fury, Kill Shot.  Usually getting between 9k to 13k hits on people, after that its just a volley and their done usually.

Yes the damage is intense, but you die quick if you dont run away, so your best playing a 1 trick pony sniper, but its alot of fun.

Crits do +50% damage, increased by +crit damage. 150% + 25% = 175%.

I am pretty sure I would melt that warrior build very quickly with my engie build. That and the fact that rifle warrior is not good at all at point defense.

Considering this build was necro'd 2 months after the fact, I'm pretty sure no one uses rifle builds competitively anymore.

He said competitively, not a video of some guy in wvw stacking his offensive stats so high a stiff breeze would down him, execute him and then proceed to have it's way with his corpse.

This video reminds me of unbreakable, except that was funny. I'm not saying you're wrong about rifles being used, just it's totally off topic when taken in context; Rifle builds in TPVP.

Rifle butt = 450 range AOE knocback
Aimed shot = 5 second cripple (+1s immobilize if you trait for leg specialist)

That's pretty good CC. Maybe not if CC is your primary goal, but it does the trick. I can clear most points of defenders with rifle + cc utilities.

What's wrong with rifle. It hasn't been nerfed in any patches.

People got better at (understanding) the game, warriors barely see use at all in tPvP save for some GS roaming warriors.
