Hi ! As I thought this patch was an amazing one for core guard (burn). Prior this patch I was able to easily maintain 15-16k alone on the training golem without any extra buffs/condi, from the console, and 25k with a raid setup, It's around 4-7k more now.
Realistic Dps alone :
Raid setup Dps :
Since the rotation is literally spamming, you can upkeep a high dps even during high aoe pressure fights, even full ranged the scepter alone keeps you at 20k.
You bring your own might, fury, and 25 vulnerability stacks, so as a DPS, even if your buffer is down, you still can dish out a decent dps.
If you need CC just replace Stand Your Ground or Signet of Wrath for Bane Signet. Same if you need reflects, take Wall of Reflection, and switch to Master Of Consecration instead of Unscathered Contender, since 7X% of your Dps is burning, you can sacrifice your power a bit , you won't see any difference.
Signet of Courage is just a panic button if things goes south, but you can change to anything you like, here is the build, Have Fun !

( Since the dps is not that much power/crit dependent, use Carrion & Balthazar Runes for Open World/WvW / PvP, the damages are pretty much the same, but with 2Xk hp! )
Meme Edit : Dps around 38k underwater
