Best Class for Greatswords?

1) Gap closer - also great to use to get around quickly
2) Block - can now be used when moving and blocks ranged projectiles for the full duration or until you block a melee hit

Go guardian if you want straightforward melee damage with some defensive/cc skills
Go warrior if you want traditional, simple melee damage. Hundred blades is fun
Go Mesmer if you like taunting your enemies and trolling the heck out of them while you smash them
Go Ranger if you for some reason want to play a ranged class in melee, or if you really like having animal effects when you attack.
For those who say Mesmer animations are bad for legendary, I give you Sunrise on a mesmer.

what are u guys smoking? I assume he means best as in DPS.
The warrior is very boring to play tho... 2111121111121111121111 somewhere in the middle u pop FGJ, and On my Mark... but its just 2 button mashing. However i have yet to see any class come close to the DPS numbers of a GS warrior.
Hundered Blades when traited and setup correctly does anywhere from 12K-35K (Totally buff'd)
This guy proves it..
There is no way a guardian can top a warrior in DPS or any class for that matter with a greatsword.
Personally if u ask me, guardians are better off with hammers as it does more dps in the long run + lays down a symbole every third hit and with when traited can heal and also give protection and inflict damage.
Im pretty sure they Way HB works is, that number is the combined total dmg he did with HB, not just one hit. Also he is with a large group of people, you notice all the vulnerability stacks and debuffs on the mob. You could add up the dmg from the same amount of hits from a pure dps axe build since the dmg on hits is counted individually, and get similar results easy.

Not sure if I can say which is the best class, but I do feel that it is the best weapon (in general) for Guardian and Mesmer is greatsword.

self boons, leap, whirl finish, blind, combo field, pull
and every single one of them is an AoE
