Recommended guardian build? — Guild Wars 2 Forums

Recommended guardian build?

I have heart of thorns, but not path of fire. So I do not have the option to go firebrand. After the core guardian nerf it seems like I am not doing as well.
Any recommendations on the next best thing? I'm thinking going condition burning build with sword and torch or something, or maybe DH.

    Exactly. For PvE a condi build will absolutely work, always has. PvP is another story.

    For pvp, core guard still "works" if you swap Valkyrie for Marauder amulet....but holy kitten it basically only works if you were very skilled with the Valk setup, don't expect to have more than 3k HP after any kind of battle....

  • I'm looking for spvp build. I'm thinking it will take some time for people to figure out a new build here. Right now I'm running a burst burning build

    I swapped Valkyrie's amulet for Marauder's, and radiance for Honor323, oddly similar to pre-nerf guard, 75% crit chance with fury, less power, more sustain
