Please recommend WvW zerg build

This is my personal build for PvE and WvW:
I use a great sword as my main weapon and an axe/warhorn as my off weapon, yet I switch the off weapons vastly depending on situations, for example if we are sieging something I will switch them for my long bow, If I'm after someone I switch it for a rifle, so on so on, remember you can equip different gear when you are out of combat, so if you need to switch do it.My gear is pure knights gear with +vit/toughness/power accessories. As far as hp goes my hp is somewhere around the 25.4k. I crit quite often even with the lack of + precision gear. Specially since most great sword skills are multi hit skills.
Now the beauty of this build. For one you don't require bolas or any other physical skill for immobilization. Throw your great sword with blade trial and you immobilize them, multiple targets too if more than one gets hit, if you do it correctly the blade will hit them twice giving you 2 secs of immobilization, the same goes with Axe skill #3 so bringing the enemy to melee or rooting it for an escape becomes easier. My shouts heal me and since I use runes of the soldier they also remove other conditions, if not switch to war horn and you get to transform them into boons, This gives you access to boons such as regeneration and protection from common conditions like poison and bleeding or weakness. With FGJ and SR I get about 7 stacks of might and an increase in my crit chance, when I use hundred blades followed by whirlwind > blade trial and rush you get enough crits to boost those stacks of might from 7 - 14+ I can easily keep 18 - 25 stacks of might on me the whole time. Which means much much more damage.
So far I never loose 1 v 1, even fought hard enemies such as mesmers and guardians and won, some very good one placed very long lasting entertaining fights, but the average WvW player have yet to show a significant challenge.With this build if I time things correctly I can easily solo supply camps, so while the raid takes important stuff I keep the enemy supply starved, can easily take on multiple enemies at once as well. It also allows you to travel faster due to the ability to keep swiftness on all the time via war horn and signer of rage, use a sword in the main hand with #2 skill followed by greatsword #5 and you be flying through the field of battle.
I also made other more defensive builds, this one is my most offensive build and to be honest the most successful one. If you don't want to use the warhorn on the off hand or off weapon you can always switch the warhorn trait in the vit tree for faster shouts, or redo the whole vit tree over to banners, the banners can largely help your zerg as long as they stay close to them, however people tend to steal 'em "ANet needs to fix this asap" and over all they aren't as effective when doing 1 v X. X being the number of targets you are facing as they can kite you away from the banner.

Other than that, it's up to you really. I trait 10 points into strength for the major trait which gives you the ability to deflect missiles when blocking. It. Is. Awesome. Use a sword/shield. Leap into a group of enemies, hit a few of them, cripple, etc, then when they turn on you, use "FEAR ME!" and start running back to friendly lines, then when they start using range, block them and have them kill themselves.
It's also the perfect counter to a thief with Thieves Guild because of their Unload which is reflected right back at them. It's great.
I run no strength, but 25 points into precision for the +10% dmg on bleeding foes. I use a superior sigil of bleeding, can't remember the name, so I can bleed enemies with my bow and set them on fire for an added 20% dmg. Plus, bleeding is a very common condition so you don't always have to apply it yourself.
Plus, you can easily switch from WvW to PvE just by changing out your traits so it saves money. I've been running it for a while now and have yet to change it out.

There are control hammer builds, tanky/healy shield builds, glass cannon range builds,...
I would recommend taking a minute to decide what kind of play style you enjoy and come tell us.
