Thief's Clusterbomb is semi-OP for tower defense.  You can stand to the back of the wall so most enemy AoE doesn't hit you, and just rain down bombs that can crit for 7k+ on the enemies on your gates.

No the build makes it so small groups can wreck zergs. This is WvW if you don't want to be in a group you should be in sPvP solo holding a cap point or taking our Yaks.

The OP asked for an effect class for running in a group. That being said I don't think the hammer warrior sounds like what the OP is looking for but I could be wrong. It sounds like he wants to sit back and rain AoE death on people from range but maybe I am wrong.

That being said I'd say Ele or Engi.
Open field zerg vs zerg I think the Ele is slight better then Engi. In lag big open field fights where you get ability lag it can be hard to hit anything with grenades because of the slow travel time. Ele's seem to have a better time in open field. Keep/tower defense Engi's can nuke the hell out of large groups of people.

I don't know much about Rangers other then, if I am standing on a wall attacking people below and see rangers peppering me with arrows I stand there and tank it while killing people. If I see an Ele AoE I  move out of it.

Having played a hammer warrior, running with different groups, I can tell you one thing. The zerg wrecking factor is reliant factor is dependent upon how the group you are with reacts. If you leap in there and the people around you start killing, it's just like this guy says. Two or three hammer warriors will cause turmoil like you wouldn't believe. If the people around you stand there staring or run away because they are scared of possibly dying, you are a goner. First one in, last one out. It works well for LoD because they don't leave each other or the pugs they know aren't idiots behind.

Also, LOL @ the ranger comment. It is one of the reasons I dusted off my warrior and started playing him in wvw.
