PvE Spellbreaker tips/build?

Svennis.3852Svennis.3852 Member ✭✭✭

Hey all, pretty inexperienced with the warrior class and brand new to SB elite. My friend is going to buy GW2 for PoF, and I wanted to play with her Ele as a bit of a meat shield/dps.

I was gonna base my build off this from meta battle: https://metabattle.com/wiki/Build:Spellbreaker_-_DPS_Spellbreaker

Just wondering if you think this is optimal for PvE?

I feel very squishy trying it out, but that might be my lack of rhythm/flow when it comes to war/sb. My gear is exotic tier but it’s nothing special, not geared especially well.

    Alternatively you could run a Core Warrior build with Strength/Defense/Discipline as Strength allows you to combo Forceful Greatsword with Might Makes Right for healing.

    Combined with Adrenal Health from Defense, as well as Shield Master turning your block into a heal, you’ll end up with the most sustain-y Warrior build possible.

    Should help you while you try and get some more experience with the class. When you get more comfortable with it you can switch out Defense for Spellbreaker for more damage.

    Cool, thank you for the break down. I’ll take look at that set up tonight.

    Would you recommend using banners or no?

    Banners are more for organized, instanced PvE (such as Raids). IMO it is far too annoying to have to lug them around when just running about the open world.

    If you wanna help out your buddy, you should look into Shouts. For Great Justice is good and way more spammable/convenient than Banners.
