    I'm assuming you're level 80 and have unlocked all the specs. What kind of content do you want this for?

    That combo of weapons works as a power dps oriented build for solo open world content. The sword/dagger combo isn't as popular as the sword/axe combo. Dagger gives you a ok evade (sword already gives you 2 good evades) but axe 4 gives you a knockdown and "Gap closer" (drag a mobile enemy to you) and Axe 5 gives you a missile reflect ability that also can do amazing damage.
    Note: if you haven't experimented with gw2's ground targeting control options, hit F11 and scroll down on the first tab. It makes axe 4 into a normal attack.

    Take a look at the power builds here
    There aren't any that are for sword/dagger but a few have options for sword/axe and others for longbow.
