Build:
http://gw2skills.net...BYPwYGh/1DK6QGC

Gear:
Full Knights Armour (Superior Soldier Runes)
Full Knights Trinkets
Hammer (Pow/Prec/Crit) with Sigil of Accuracy (5% Crit chance)
Staff (Pow/Tough/Heal) with Sigil of Energy (50% Endurance on swap)

Stats:

Vitality:
I want to know how to increase my Vitality. I'm not sure if I should get the Soldier (Pow/Tough/Vit) gear since it'll lower my precision. Same with swapping the Knight trinkets with the Valkyrie ones. I want to know how you all can keep a good amount of Vitality with decent amount of Precision and Crit chance.

I would suggest mixing your trinkets a bit. Valkyrie is a nice compliment to a Knight's set. You increase your Vitality and up your Critical Damage first. I don't know if it would be viable to create Knight's Jewelry but upgrade them with Beryl Jewels instead of Emeralds.

If you try the trait route, some players increase their Radiance to 15, granting Renewed Justice and a way to offset the use of Valkyrie Trinkets instead of Knight's.

Thanks to the both of you I ended up switching an Amulet and a Ring which lowered my Crit chance from 50% -  42%, my Armour from 3217 - 3030 but increased my HP from 15, 595 to 17,015.

Should I try to increase my HP further or should this be enough?
And is there anything else I should look into or change?

I have a similar build on my Guardian and love the Hammer, Iam just wondering if u need "Purity-trait" since u have both Signet of resolve and Soldier Rune #6 piece Bonus. I would slot something else I believe.

Thanks for the reply. I was wondering if someone will mention that. I chose Purity mainly because it's the only decent one, but it also cooperates with the Signet so every 10 seconds I remove two conditions. Even with the Signet, Purity and the Soldier rune I still get Condition spammed so I still find it extremely useful.

Just out of curiosity though, what would you put in place of Purity?

Purity is great, but in PVP/WvW have you consider slotting Judges Intervention as a utility and picking up Meditation Mastery. JI gives you a stun breaker, a 1200 gap closer (important for hammer) and my personal favorite reason is that JI doesn't break cast animations so if you quickly hit Ring of Warding > JI you can instantly teleport and "ring" people very easily. I pick up a ton of kills with it in WvW.

Thanks for all the help, I have another thing I'm wondering about.
The stats I should have on my staff, should I stick with the current staff I have now or try to pick up one with Power/Toughness/Vitality?
