Hmm, that looks like an interesting build, but is it viable also for leveling? On early levels, there is not much from traits yet and also sigils are not so good to make so good use of burning...
I was lvling with 10/30/0/0/30 with rampage gear [power, precision, condition dmg], couse during lvling u want to kill things as quickly as possible and AoE burning + Superior Sigil of Fire [I'm using it currently in both weapon sets] was great to do it. U just had to pull lots of mobs and literally burnt them down.
But I prefer spec i have now. 1st of all more survivability. 2nd of all they have to buff Virtues tait line couse at this moment its not to viable for offensive builds [to much crap u don need]. If it was better i would be currently speced in them and condition dmg.
For lvling [if u want to do it WoWs way, as quick as possible] go for berserker or rampager gear, sword+torch for strong targets, hammer for AoE and control and u will go through your foes like a meatgrinder goes through a chicken breast. Spec and gear would depend on if u prefer streight up dmg or conditions.
If u want to take your time and enjoy leveling then u can go fo anything u want.
I forgot to mention, wierdly GS has 130 [classing melee] range and sword has 150, i know its not much but belive me u can tell the difference.
And one more thing buring is single most powerful condtion it gets more from condition dmg and lvl then any other condition [not couting stacking bleeds].
I'd go for folowing
1st book go for zeal and radiance lines just for sheer stats cuz u dont have much at the lower lvls from the gear, then place either in valor or virtues.
When u get 2nd book, go for 10 zeal just to get +10% dmg to burning targets and go for radiance. Rest is up to your play style, Virtues if u want condtions, Valor if u prefer straight up crits.
