Just a quick question I was wondering you could shed your opinion on ...
As I don't have any Ascended gear, and I'm yet to start doing fractals (due to no permanent groups), would you recommend 6/6 Knight & Staff, with Valkyrie Rings/Amulet/Accessories and Berserker GS? I'm still working on grinding AC to get Soldier's.
Your insight would be appreciated. Also subscribed.
Yes a combination of knights and valkyrie could work if you do need more health and want to sacrifice some toughness for crit % in the meantime.
If you really want to maximize your stats though, going something like knight rings with valk jewels and then taking valk for hands, feet, or shoulders will cause you to lose less stat points. That's if you are a true min-maxer since jewels offers the most % crit with the least amount of stat loss, and rings have one of the worst ratios for crit % per stat point loss. I have it all outlined in my warrior guide for stat loss per % crit for each slot of gear which should be linked in my guardian guide.

Vigorous precision. How do you think that will change functionality?
Well the nerf does suck and we lose some healing. It really hurts more for soloing though. Basically AH is still really strong, just a bit less strong then before. I do think Empowering Might is pretty necessary though with how much AH healing it gives out in a group of 5 now. It didn't completely break AH dungeon build, but it did nerf it.

Can someone give some direction with levelling with this build, i.e. trait order, cheap gear, what skills to use? AH is not available until 60, so does that change things? New to Guardians (and pretty new to GW2 in general). Any help appreciated!
Leveling on guardian is really easy, it's so cheap to respec also you can really try out whatever. It's been a while but I did use meditations more like Judge's Intervention and whatever the clear condition meditation is. Just focus on things like 2 hand cooldown, and 15 in radiance 5 in virtues since it's really good for leveling when you're killing a bunch of trash mobs constantly.
