As the title says, I am looking for the best class and build to level up to 80 the quickest possible. SOLO!

What's the class that can do hearts / events / Dungeons (dungeons in groups) without too much difficulty?

I know it's kind of a big question and you all are probably going to be like "there is no best class, just go with what you like the most"but honestly, i just want a full on beast PVE class that will make my life easier so I don't have to spend 3 weeks leveling up a character.

I got a Ranger lvl80 already.

Please help GW2 Guru members

If you want to Speed Leveling the best way i found so far is by farming low level dungeon. AC and CM mainly, and TA if needed. You got almost a level each time you complete 1 run and AC and CM you can do all of the run (except AC path 3) in about 20min with a low level group if you know what to do. Leveling speaking you need to skip the more possible. CM is bugged as hell and you can use that to skip a lot in this dungeon for all the 3 path. AC its just easy to do it quick and skip some mobs.

For CM a Thief, Engineer or Necro is best because they can pull a target to kill him alone reducing a lot the risk of your party being wipe when at lower level. In AC its Elementalist all the way. With my ele i can carry the group through some of the more difficlult part.

Exemple : i can take 4 of the 5 specter piece. All five if i wait 30 sec for my skills to recharge. Ele's ice bow allow a low level group to do high DPS on burrows. If you have 2 Ele in your group you can also do the path 3 with a low level group in a short time.

I heard the necro have some tricks for AC too, but i don't know them.

I would say guardian as they can facetank multiple mobs at once easily making hearts go quick. The heavy armor and support will also be welcome in dungeons.

Step 1. Pick any class
Step 2. Open your internet browser and go to any of the popular crafting guides sites.
Step 3. Follow guides
Step 4. Enjoy your new lvl 80 character 5 hours later.


That is the fastest way to level to 80. It doesn't matter what profession because they all can do every craft.

Well if its true that the fastest way to reach level 80 is by crafting, its not gonna take you 5 hours. 5 hours of crafting yes, but you need to have all the crafting material. The fastest way to achieve that? Farm gold and buy you material on the TP.

Its gonna cost you between 20 and 30 gold to make your way to the Level 80. With a good farming spot you can farm between 5 to 15 hours. Give about 1 hour to order your material and 5 hours for crafting. 80 level in about 11 to 21 hours. The problem with that is that you absolutly don't know how to play your profession at level 80. I prefer craft to level 35 and then do dungeons.

With gems already closing in on 2g per 100, and Wintersday items about to hit the market, 1 Gem Card can net you probably close to 40g.  $25 USD.

Back to the actual topic, I would go Warrior if you are just gonna grind solo, or Guardian if you also plan to do Instances.  Many feel letting lower than level 80 into an instance party along the lines of carrying, but most never say a word if they can get a Guardian that plays well, regardless of level.

Yes, crafting is the quickest way to level, but very costly.  To answer your question, it would be a guardian with a great sword.  I've jsut leveled a warrior to lvl 80 in a few days doing nothing but renown hearts, DE, and about 10 map completions.  I did it just to see the comparison between a  warrior and guardian GS skills and their effectiveness as a class.  Also tried other classes to to answer that same question you have.  GS are the strongest damaging skills, and with a guardian gs skill set you can pull 5 mobs to you, and pretty much all skills are aoes so you kill more mobs faster and get things done quicker.  A warrior GS damage is good, but it's flexibility in aoe grinding is not as good as a guardian's who is faster and can cluster mobs together.  Using shouts like "save your self" and "retreat" can give you longer duration of speed buff for you to get to places faster than a warrior too.

Leveling in this game is incredibly easy.  It's less about which class you use and more about having and using a brain.

Warrior or guardian for extra face roll.

Craft to shortcut.

IMO, if the game is so painful to you that you can't be bothered to level - don't play - find something else to do with your time.  If you don't actually like playing a game, why play it?

Depend on what do you like. Sure if you try to bypass everything to get to level 80 as fast as you can on you First Character, its weirds. I can only talk for myself but i don't really like leveling my character from level 1 to 35 exept when i can play with some friend who level their character too. So i use crafting to bypass that, after i do dungeon to leveling to 80 not only because its fast, but more because i like doing dungeon.

who ever said that the game is painfull to me? o.O i love this game and i think it's the best MMO in Years
I love playing it, exploring, etc.

I just want to level another class to 80 that's not ranger for the lulz, precisely because I love the game.
I just want to know quick ways to level in case I am tired of running around for Heart Scouting lol. Calm yourself lad, no need to jump to conclusions.

People love to make assumptions, sadly.

Either way - lots of good tips here to help. Craft, craft, craft :P

- I want that purple stuff.

FYI If you don't care to max your crafting profession or you already max them. With the current material prices the crafting profession and tier that cost the less to leveling are:

Jeweler (0-300), Artificer (0-300), Chef (0-400), the rest of the profession (0-75). If you do all this it cost about 8 gold and you'r gonna level of about 35 level.

Bump:

so what's the cheapest crafting to go for to lvl 80? And what profession do you guys recommend for a lvl 80 solo that's also useful in dungeon parties?

There is nothing not useful when it comes to this games professions.  However i would give a slight edge to Guardians and Eles as eagerly accepted, so they get a slight edge, very slight.

When you say Solo, at 80, just what are you soloing?

Over all, when all is said and done, if you want the most versatile at handling all environments well, I would have to give Guardian the edge, if we came down to having to make a single choice.

Ah when I said solo, i meant general gameplay by oneself. I suppose that yes I did mean the most versatile in handling all environments thanks

They all can handler allmost environnement.

Warrior : High defense, Hight HP
Guardian : High Defense, a lot of protection spell
Elementalist : A lot of spell to get you out of shitty situation (Arcane Shield, Teleport, Mist Form, Earth Protection, etc) and 20 weapons skills with attunement.
Engineer : Several kits can allow you to perform in different situation
Thief: Use your stealth wisely and you'll always be to sole surviver even with Guardian and Warrior in your group
Necromancer : Massive AOE blind for 20second. Do i need to say more? Can tranform a painful dungeon into a walk in the park.
Mesmer : How many times i wanted to scream against a Mesmer in PvP because i couldn't found him between all these clones.
Rangers : The less versatile in my opinions even if i like to play with mine which is great in some situation.
