I saw some vids YouTube, and I have a question about taking the class warrior and building it for pvp
He seems very over-powered...
I saw him with a legendary weapon, and was amazed
The dps he was inflicting was so high
Is that something ordinary for a warrior?
Or is it because of the legendary?

Legendaries don't give you any extra bonuses to stats; the stats are the same as on ascended. In sPvP everyone has same stats regardless of what they're wearing. That means that even if you're full asc, you stats will the same as everyone else's. Honestly there isn't much difference in power between exotics and ascended gear either, chances are you won't notice.

Warriors are the powerhouses of GW2 yes. They have the best set of everything, apart from party healing and boons (that's what eles and guards are for). Core blob material is in order: Warrior, Guard, Ele, Necro, Mesmer. Everything else is very situational, or lacking in certain areas.

good to know.
it's a bit frustrating
because I followed a warrior on a youtube channel and the dps was freaking amazing. He was unstopabble.
as a lvl 80 ele with full exotic and a molten staff, only when I take out the Firey Greatsword i get the same dps(with a lot less defense)

I ran my warrior into WvW on Friday night reset.

With full buffs I was running with 4K armor and 35K HP.

Seems balanced to me...

It's good to remember that a person is only going to post their best footage to YouTube. Unless he's streaming you're probably not going to get a good idea of how well his build performs in most situations.

You are fooling yourself, user. Nothing here is what it seems. ANet is not the plucky hero, Guru is not an evil empire, and this is not the grand arena.

Questions about moderation? For the love of Balthazar ask them here!

Warrior is rather overpowered in WvW and Spvp. Just grab your hammer & bow and try it out yourself. Anyhow, like Kattar said, youtube heroes don't always give the best picture about the game.

While it's true they're unlikely to post footage where they're getting destroyed, warrior is in fact crazily strong atm, and I would go as far as to call them over powered.
