I'm very interested in using a hammer for my guardian but cannot seem to come up with a decent build to utilize hammers to the best of their ability. Does anyone have any suggestions or builds I may be able to use?

I use hammer for leveling, just boost symbols as much as you can through Honor line (size/duration/healing), and get some +healing gear if you use the symbols healing trait.

In combat, spam 1 and 2. That's it.

And if you're super lazy like I am - use signets for passives (heal, +power, dmg reduction) and have one other skill (I like Save Yourselves).

That's more or less it.

What would be good for a second weapon set to go with that kind of build?

Well, anything with symbols is ok, since you're boosting them anyway.

- GS for the leap, a blind, condition cleansing AoE with retaliation (and healing with the trait), and more single target dmg;
- Mace + Focus for more survivability, with AoE heal, protection field, a blind and a triple block shield;
- Scepter and torch/focus for some range viability;
- Staff for some group support.

I played with the Hammer for a little bit and found it to be kind of weak. Probably just due to my limited experience with it. Currently running a GS/Mace and Focus. I may have to play with the biggun though. Got me through the first couple of levels haha.

The Hammer deals massive damage by the way, you just need to have a decent critical chance. (I've used and still am using it from 2-80)

I use 0/20/10/30/10, in Honor I take increased size, duration, and 20% faster cooldowns. This gives you pretty spectacular damage to multiple enemies, low cooldowns overall on the hammer, 100% duration on Protection, and a sizable duration on Retaliation from Mighty Blow + Symbol of Protection/Ring of Warding.
