Yes I meant Fury, and the traits are described there as you ask. First get 10 in Arms for Deepstrikes, then 10 in Disc for Heightened focus, and finally 10 in strength for Berserker's power.

See: Taking traits in Arms, for Deep Strikes, and then in Discipline for Heightened Focus, and lastly in Strength for Berserker's Power.

Then and lastly being key words as they show the order in which you are grabbing those traits.
Hope this helps!
Sorry Mate, I realized everything as soon as I posted the Question, But forgot to post back, Guess that was a bit selfish and noobish on my part :)

So Avorniel wanted to know a good leveling path for traits and gear, and I'm going to give that to her/him. Basically this build is very situated for max level, and until you get there, nothing is going to be the same.

At level 11 up to 40 (First trait point-Next trait book) I would urge you to use a 5 signet build, with Healing Signet, Signet of Stamina, Signet of Might, Signet of Precision, and Signet of Rage. This type of build is sort of boring, but will be very effective for those levels. Taking traits in Arms, for Deep Strikes, and then in Discipline for Heightened Focus, and lastly in Strength for Berserker's Power. Your gear in these levels will not matter at all, just make sure you are building Power/Precision.

From 40 to 60 you should keep building with Signets, grabbing all the traits from before, and also Forceful Greatsword (Arms) and Slashing Power (Strength). Your gear will remain Power/Precision and wont really matter.

At level 60, the game changes. Buy your next trait book, use it, and put your points in the Tactics line, starting with Empowered, then Lung Capacity, and then Vigorous Shouts. Your last 20 will go into Rending Strikes (Arms) and Heightened Focus (Discipline). Your skills at this point should be the same as Sonic Boon ("For Great Justice!", "On My Mark!", "Shake It Off!", and Signet of Rage). You should grab some level 55 Knight's armor from the Trading Post, and upgrade said armor with 2 Major Runes of Strength, 2 Major/Minor runes of Hoelbrak, and 2 Major/minor Runes of Water. You will use those runes until level 80, by using T-Stones that you get from map completion to transfer them on to any new armor you receive. Once you have that armor, you can go out and frolic, pick up and use any Knight's gear you find (Toughness/Power/Precision) that is better than what you have (Make sure to transmogrify your runes over like I said).

At 60-80 you'll want to put your points into Arms for Forceful Greatsword, and then lastly into Berserker's Power once you reach 80. The gear at 80 is mentioned in the spread sheet.

Overall, as you can see, Sonic Boon only starts to work when you hit 60, and then gets fully fledged at 80. Prior to 60 you can really run any build you like, but a 5 signet build will do fine, good damage, and easy to maintain/use.

I hope this answered some questions for you Avorniel, and anyone else who might have also been curious about this. Thanks for reading the thread and encouraging use of the build :D
You say SIgnet of precision.. Do you mean Fury?
And for the 11-40 Part can you recommend at what levels to put how many points into whatever trait? And which trait skills to get at those points?
