I think you might have posted the wrong build.  Theres no hammer chill trait and you traited for extra toughness with shield, but dont use a shield at all.
Because the skill calc didn't have that trait. I picked the trait that was removed instead and added "(With the Hammer Chill trait)" below the link, with the assumption that people would understand that it would replace the removed shield trait.

Heya silven, I know you from gw1 :P.

Anyways, the hammer does decent damage, but the big downside is that it's auto attack chain is incredibly slow and the final hit is very easy to dodge. Mighty blow is also too easy to avoid which doen't make the hammer a very popular weapon for offensive oriented builds. The hammer also doesn't seem to scale as well with Power as other weapons.

I personally run something like this:
http://www.gw2build....0.0.10.20.30.10
(With the Hammer Chill trait).

Sigil of Intelligence is really nice on a hammer, swap > critical Mighty Blow + 50% chance 4 second chill. If you do that after Empower you will still hit for around 3k+ damage. It's more of a support/cc build but one that still has enough DPS to force people off capture points; Larger Symbols and 20% CDR on all skills with perma AoE retaliation should add more pressure than 500 more power. Dodge heals for 1227, regen for 267, resolve for 150, retaliation hits for 319.

If you look at the goal your build is trying to accomplish instead of just maxing damage on a weapon not very suited for that role, you can make much more effective builds.

Im about to hit 40 with my Guardian. What if any tips can you give me for Traits and gear for that level. I've started to move more towards a GS/Scepter-Torch build and was wondering if maybe a Staff would be better then the GS for Dungeon runs?


Thanks in advance

I went with 20 honor 10 virtues at that level for the boons from your virtues and whatever traits I felt like using in Honor. For dungeons at low levels you probably want to go with Spirit Shield & +50% spirit duration for a 30 second projectile immunity for your team. I ran more of a symbol support build with Writ of Exaltation and Writ of the Merciful. Using greatsword + mace / *.

Greatsword is amazing in dungeons because of the pull, staff is nice but greatsword helps a lot more. Balling enemies up so everyone hits 2 instead of one doubles your team's DPS, instead of just +12 might for a few seconds. The 2 whirl finishers on Greatsword also help a lot against conditions.

I went with +healing armor but any is fine. More offensive oriented armor helps with solo speed.
