In Topic: DPS Guardian Guide for PVE

30 January 2014 - 08:29 AM

As usual, #1 guardian pve guide. Good stuff.

Surprised you're still around Obal. Surely the game is getting a bit dull now especially with anet making their intentions for quick fixes rather than mechanic/gameplay fixes known?
Have many of rT/DnT given up? Or do they just keep getting chain banned from the forums? :P

Apologies, you were talking hammers and I don't use them often.
I use full zerkers, no accuracy sigil, no perception, 10/30/0/5/25 build, potion, pwr/crit dmg food, bloodlust sigil and have 88% crit chance for greatsword and 103% crit chance with 1h sword. (In fact I sometimes use a couple of valk pieces to bring 1h down to 100..).

I suppose it depends on what you plan on doing with the radiance tree. Personally even though my GS could do with the crit, it would be a waste for my 1h rotation so I just load up on more power.

Hammer builds I can see getting some good usage from assassin, but not enough to lose sleep over. If you've got enough gold, grab both. If you're poor I'd probably just go with zerker since it'll always be either best or close to it.

I would just go for zerker and not worry about assassin.
There are many situations in which you have too much precision.
If you ever don't have enough precision, you can use perception stacks.

It's easier to swap consumables and sigils than it is gear (expensive).

As for the original question of knight vs zerker... just go zerker. Knight is like a training stage for zerker, so there's no point making a set of ascended gear which you will outgrow as a player. Practice dungeons in exotics if you must, and save gold by crafting the hardmode zerker ascended.

Very nice!
Did you decide to skip casting Tome #5 on prebuff for the might stacks? It's a blast finisher and should also be affected by quickness.

I like that you have 15 in radiance, that's a good sign. Virtue VI and IX are great, so you're definitely going to be bringing the right support.

Don't really understand the honor traits though. 2h mastery doesn't do much for this build. It's a tiny dps boost to greatsword I suppose. Pure of voice? SYG is situational, retreat is on a long cooldown, SY is bad for group play, and HTL is half decent. Between that rough lineup, virtue IX and virtue VI I'd say just take purging flames + absolute resolution for your condi removal and be done with it. I find empowering might poor due to the limited radius of the buff. Same for the symbol heals.  Honestly don't see what you're getting from the honor line besides vigor. Would much rather have 100 power, 100 precision, 10% dmg and 10% dmg. No-brainer for me.

Don't really see the point of celestial either. Less dps than zerker, what do you gain in exchange? A bit of toughness/vitality which won't save you anyway if you're not a very good player, and a tad more healing for your dodge roll?

If you really want to dish out support - hammer is good, writ of persistence is great, and 15 in zeal is pretty sweet too for the aoe ~5% vulns.
