Every build is viable since there are no enrage timers to encounters. Yes you can clear every dungeon with most builds. But no, I would not want you for my "fastest, speed clear" runs. That doesn't mean I don't like you, just that your setup is not efficient "for that purpose." If i wanted to just get the dungeon done regardless of how fast it was, then yeah I'd definitely hit you up for a party. This thread was posted in regards on how to be Optimal for Dungeon clearing as fast as possible with the best builds to do just that. There will always be a fastest way of doing something, not everyone has to do it that way.

I just reread the original post and don't see where the OP specified s/he was speaking specifically about speed runs. What I took from it was that if you don't spec for max dps, you're just wasting other peoples time because your build is suboptimal. Why do a run in 10 minutes when you can put out more dps and do it in 6? It just seemed to me the OP believes warriors are a dps only class and anyone that goes in another direction is suffering from a "loser" mentality. Perhaps my reading comprehension has diminished with my advanced age! ;-)

I think the OP has a point about watering down a build in an attempt to do everything, that specialization is key to a good build. That being said, dismissing any build that doesn't do max dps seems unreasonable at best. A properly geared shout build warrior like I run can heal for 7500+ every 30 seconds to the whole group. Couple that with condition removal on each shout with soldier runes and I'm the guy you want around if the stuff hits the fan.

Pretty much everything that Ark just said. I'm a warrior as well(lvl 70) and I can say that I've gone the full signet route as well. The only  difference was I used a combination of longbow and sword/axe because I was able to use combos effectively to get myself out of trouble. To add to what Ark said, you don't have to go karma spending crazy either. Five or even ten levels between getting and equipping new gear wasn't uncommon for me because the stats weren't much different unless I was going from a blue to a green. And lastly, it never hurts to go into pvp to mess around with any and all builds/weapon combinations you come up with! All the weapons and trait resets are free there.
