Firstly, I have only read a few posts here and there to catch up but not to a great extent. If my question is easily answered in another thread that you know about, please, link me! I'm not afraid of reading long posts, like some others might be.
I haven't played WvW on my ranger since I came back from a 4-5month break. That being said, before I took my break I was exclusively playing WvW with as a trapping ranger. I don't have the exact build at the moment but in general it was a condition build which utilized the SB and Axe/Sword/Horn or Axe/Sword/Torch (I would mixed and matched depending on what I was doing).
In general I avoided zergs and roamed picking off solos or groups of 2-3 (I was fairly successful if I do say so myself). Or I would run with small groups of 2-5 and take smaller objectives. My play style is very much hit and run.
Now for my question. I have seen a lot of people talking about apothecary bunker builds and direct damage builds which make use of the LB and a GS or Sword/Horn. I understand that in PvE direct damage is superior to condition, is this the case in WvW? Is trapping in WvW still viable? Can I still confuse and kite my target while letting poison, bleed, and burn chip away at my opponent? If so, would any of you be so kind as to send me to a build which I might try?
p.s. If using the SB and trapping is complete garbage, please explain to me why!
