Shortbow, run around the burrow spamming 2. It's kinda buggy and the autoattack won't hit sometimes, but 2 does a hell of a lot of damage to make up for it. If there's an ele in the group, ask for an ice bow it murders burrows.

I use Sb aswell for the mounds in AC like the above poster skill 2 deals lots of damage, mounds in AC is somewhat buggy at times when im in melee mode i can't hit the mounds with skill 1, but speacial attacks like pistol whip will hit it. but if you want to deal the most damage in structure go for s/p and spam pisol whip and skill 1.

But more importantly you have to trait for power.. if your conditiion build and have small amounts of power your damage to structures will is very small no matter what weapon set you use.

High power plus melee.

The mounds are buggy in melee, you'll miss if you are not moving when the attack hits, so dance around while attacking to melt it the fastest.

Ice Bow yes, shortbow no. daggers do it best, as Ensign said. You want high single-target damage to take these things out; why are you suggesting an AoE weapon with low single-target damage?

Sorry forgot to add that i use SB in a shotgun manner in where i spam cluster bomb close range and detonate it so that most of the bombs will hit your primary target. As i've said i only use sb just for ac, in other structures i use p/p or s/p.

We can argue all day long which is the best but until anet comes up with a dps meter experience will be your greatest advisor, but bottom line POWER is the key to taking out structures bec structures is not affected by conditions.

As for d/d i don't know how quick it can kill off a structure but for me i feel s/p is better at it as you can spam pistol whip and get the full damage compared to d/d blossom is a dead skill because structures don't recieve conditions so your left with skill 1 and skill 2 which is terrible in structures at times bec it will totally miss your target bec of the jumping forward animation. Im not sure if you can backstab even if you can i think s/p is still the fastest but thats just me.

This was a major boon for me when I was playing a condition build. One of the many reasons I switched. Generally I found that either d/d or clusterbomb spam does the job well enough. Usually I use SB when the added aoe damage can be of use and otherwise d/d
