Grand Marshal.4098 Posted August 26, 2021 Share Posted August 26, 2021 (edited) http://gw2skills.net/editor/?PKwEMiNssB2I7iRxIxiW6fpD-zVRYBBLG1sTpJJQmigYWA5ME04BIgeL6PDA-w I really wanted to test out a core warrior build not revolving around either the dps Berserker offers or the boonstrip Spellbreaker offers. With stability being in abundance and superspeed as well these days, obviously roles such as Banner frontline warrior, have died through the years. So I wanted to experiment with a Core warrior build meant to be of use in a zerg, bringind DPS, boon support and massive might generation for range spikes. You may ask why longbow, but believe it or not the ticking power dmg on burst is very good against enemies and clouds and the burning can slowly eat away the health of downies, making sure the cleave is still there even after your zerg moves a bit further. Sword leap is for positioning, warhorn for buffing mid bomb. That's classic. Lonbow offers some highly needed range which only zerker longbow can bring to the table, and Phalanx Strength (although it could use a buff in the applied might duration) easily gets your teammates to 25 might and with some fury from warhorn of FGJ, you can easily boost your party to top dps dealers better than a Herald. Balanced stance over frenzy, for less might but more survivability, endure pain can work too. Arms is a must cause of the lesser signet of might proc for unblockables, which you greatly need over strength dmg modifiers. Banner can be replaced for Signet of Rage for even more spike'd might share, or use it as a heal skill when around allies. Ultimately, this build will perma-set your party at max dmg modifiers (and if your party knows how to dodge bubbles and avoid bombs, you'll hardly get corrupted ast all) and will get you top 5 to top 10 DPS players. Fun little idea I tested 2 nights now in guild raids and I'm pretty happy with it as it competed and overpowered heralds in both boon application and dmg (if played correctly). Would this make it into a "meta"? Probably no. Do we care about the meta after you got 3 parties in said comp? I don't lmao. Try it and tell mer your thoughts or if you had fun playing!
