I have seen around a video of a WvW Guard with 3.4k attack unbuffed who was dealing 9k WA and 6k MB in a quick succession and I was wondering if anyone knows the build/gear setup.
I'm really into spiking and this might get me back to play my Guard again.

He probably had over 100% crit damage on a high power build with Fiery Wrath and Radiant Power in his traits for an extra 20% damage on burning enemies.

Although it's hard to tell what you're talking about, because even though I've been pvping and playing with builds since beta, I have no idea what "WA" is supposed to mean, and I can only assume that "MB" is the hammer's 2 skill.

0/30/0/30/10 all zerker's armor and weapons with either valk or emerald accessories.
Zerk orbs in rune slots or any other viable power/precision rune set.

I did DPS test yesturday,

was spec 20/25/0/20/5
Full Zerk gear/weap/jewels + rune of the pack + sigil of blood + omnomberry ghost.

My autoattack average damage (on crit):
GS: 2.2k and 3.5k for the 3rd
Sword: 2k and 1.3k of the 3rd (3x1.3=3.9k)

On a lowbie I did a 10.5k with my whirlol

With this setup I guess a good critted MB is also heavy :P

But in WvW you're very squishy :/ really fun thought...

I just quickly threw together a 10/25/0/25/10 build that has +10% to burning +10% to has a condition +10% when you have aegis +10% when endurance not full +5% with sword/spear. With all you abilities off CD if you Dodge>Justice(+1might)>SY(+1 might)>Judges Intervention(+1might on crit with empowering might) to target then you are in a situation where your first attack could have 43%(non sword)/48%(sword) bonus damage which with full zerker's should blow low defense opponents up pretty good.


That is what i threw together in about 5 minutes, might have even missed some more potential damage. I also have no idea how this would really translate, but I do know that you would be mostly useless a lot of the time.

could this be the Guardian / video you saw? see "Zealous Defender #3 - The Bomb"

if so, his build i think is highlighted and linked in the description of the first "Zealous Defender" video.
iirc, should be 30/0/30/5/5 with mix and match of gear which i think he details at the end of the video.

hope this helps!

The MB is probably mighty blow and the WA is probably supposed to be WW meaning Whirling Wrath.

Yes it's that one!


Jesus walking barefoot on fire, how fun is that?
9k MB 9k WW boom 18k AoE everyone dead.

I want that build so badly.
It could convince me to play Guard again.

I'm pretty sure I can get that health to at least 12k too.

I played around a bit and pulled off a 3.600 atk 90% critdmg 14k health version of this build.
Full zerk armor, full ruby orbs/jewels, Valk GS/Hammer.


Tested on some scrubs in WvW crits fly for 8k WW/MB.
Thief tried to cheese me, wasted his burst and downed him in 2 hits.

This gonna be fun.

that looks amazing, I've always avoided the hammer because I disliked how it played (and because I always keep a staff for my 2nd weapon set in WvW) but maybe i'll give it a whirl. I'm really into burst damage like OP atm.

Ive been running around with this build for some time.  Mind you, i dont WvW, this is in hotjoin sPvP


Not saying its the best or better.  Just seems to work really well for me.

I swap weapons almost every chance I get so im constantly using Mighty Blow or Whirling wraith.  So with all the switching I stack might pretty high.  Also due to high crit chance, im also getting might stacks from the traits.  Plus those Might Stacks heal me due to AH.

I prefer Shelter for my heal.  While the healing is less, since this build revolves around JI'ing into large groups and doing massive AoE damage, the 2 seconds of shielding from Shelter saves me from more damage than extra healing from Signet would heal for.

Stability for large fights with lots of CC and for downing/rezzing.  I took Retreat for escaping.

Basic rotation is to JI in. Hit Ring of Warding, if single target then Banish + Mighty Blow, (lots of targets ditch banish and just go straight in Mighty Blow, switch to greatsword, symbol of wraith, binding blade, whirling wraith, pop all my virtues, hit retreat, and start running away.  If im taking alot of pressure then go for shelter, if still more pressure then pop Elite (renewed focus).  And then as a last resort, pick an enemy in the back, re hit JI and run the other way.

Yes this is still a glass cannon build.  But with all the vigor, ways of being immune to damage for time, and the fact that most players cant survive 2 Mightly Blows and a Whirling Blade with your 6-10 stacks of might, you can actually survive alot.  That which you cant survive you can usually escape.

IMHO, runes of the Pack would make a better choice than Scholar.

And I can get near about the same damage output, better crit chance, little less crit damage, etc. with a 0/15/30/20/5 glass cannon build (zerker armor, weapons, and valkyrie accessories) unbuffed. I use this to run dungeons, PvE and WvW.

Does make me wonder what she would do if I went all zerker with valkyrie weaps - I am not sold on the use of Scholar runes here though.

@heatrr - that's a decent build and very fun. definitely way more survivable than the build at hand here. though i can say, you'll definitely hit a LOT harder. which can be really fun. though, you need to be on your toes a LOT more.

i'm gonna give the scholar runes a shot. currently running hoelbrak x3 and fire x3 (i don't RP but i like having concepts for my characters and while i'm a Norn, this one's ducked in a mix of cultural armor, destroyer GS and magmaton hammer lol so the hoelbrak an fire runes seemed to "fit" more). though unsure of how big a difference scholars will make. the 10% extra dmg seems nice as well, however, seems to mainly help with the initial burst.

@Red_Falcon - that's a nice twist to the build. though it makes sense.  you can definitely stay in the fight longer and still do massive dmg. will try that instead when i get on next. i felt 30/x/30/x/x was a bit too squishy fo rmy taste. though might have just needed more practice ; ))
