Yep, it's this awesome trait line call Radiance, and when you put 30 points into you can take this awesome trait called Right Handed Strength. +15% to my crit chance. You should try it, you can drop the greatsword for some higher single target damage. You will have to give up the might on the third greatsword chain though, which isn't hard to do. Sword wave on the sword can potentially give 3 might stacks on 1 mob.

Oh man, don't ask for the video evidence though, I can't prove anything I am saying because I am a writer that doesn't prepare for that.

EM still has an internal CD of 1 second - how could you possibly get 3 might stacks from one attack?

I actually intent to run something very similar to this build. Building guardian as my alt and getting pretty high.

Main difference is that I want to do 0/0/30/30/10 instead of 0/10/30/30/0

I want to take ground targeting for concentration for wall of reflection in wvwvw. I will also run 2 shouts.

But since I am speccing this way, I have had difficulty deciding if I should invest into any crit at all, or if I should just spec into power tough vit and healing and waste the 30% crit damage.

It's been troubling me for a bit now.
I could try to make up some of that crit with Healing/crit/vitality gear but whether its worth it to do this is a different story.

I understand your choices for going down the 2nd line and picking up the signet trait, its a great skill,
I'm just a believer that Id rather have wall of reflection for wvwvw purposes rather than a slightly stronger heal skill.

Also don't give up on pets with your necro. but that may just be the ranger in me speaking out.

I've been using the same build for quite some time now. I switch between 50% Spirit Weapon duration (6x soldier rune + bow with +50% duration + maybe pure of voice + 2x passive condition removal through signet and purity is just amazing) and longer or targetable consecrations depending on the situation.

The longer CD on signet takes some getting used to, but it's not that bad. Some may prefer Shelter anyway, although I haven't tested this yet.

For me, the survivability is more than enough without it.

Keep in mind that precision also helps with Empowering Might and therefore healing and a bit of party damage. I run a mix of mainly Pow/Tough/Vit armor with 2 Knight pieces (to balance out the loss of precision caused by my neglection of Radiance) and have very similar stats to the OP - a bit more health, a bit less crit chance.

I'll try and answer some of your questions, but can't answer all at the moment as it's already quite late.

I'm running a similar build at the moment and it seems very good, although I took signet mastery instead of searing flames in the radiance tree for more heals from signet of resolve.

Previously, I had 30 into virtues, but I didn't feel that the grandmaster traits added too much. With renewed justice, I believe that I'm much more useful to my team. Although the blinding, vulnerability and burning damage is nice, the 3 stacks of might applied with each spam are what I deem to be the best among its effects.

As for weaponry, I basically change depending on the enemy. For dungeons, mace+shield is a decent combo which offers survivability and support. Traits are equally exchangable depending on the situation. If I run hammer/staff for roaming in Orr for example, I'll take either writ of the merciful or 20% cooldown reduction on 2handed weapons.

You figured out the advantages/disadvantages of the elite skills quite well. ToC can be really useful, but also really wasted. Just go with what suits you most.

Haven't really done explorables yet, so if someone figures I'm talking nonsense, please keep that in mind. It's very possible that the extra condition removal from purity in the valor tree and the effects of virtues' grandmaster traits are indeed very beneficial there.
After all, I'd say you should just do it that way and test. Respecing costs like 4 silver at 80, nothing to worry about.

From what I have experienced, it refreshes when any mob you have tagged dies. I have seen it randomly stop working entirely, however, and the only fix in those situations I to re-log.

That echoes my experiences.

It seems to bug especially often in caves.
