Terrorangel.1526 Posted March 17 Share Posted March 17 Just did some testing with a build and it slaps nicely. Originally I just wanted to play with signets, especially bane signet. But I ended up with a build focusing on symbols. It makes a lot of fun to burst people with it in pvp. The crits are nice high numbers and the build offers a consistent damage application. Due to its very low hp (11,645) it is quite squishy and it also does not offer as much mobility as WB. The build resolves around symbols and wants to put down as many symbols as possible. To help with the lack of mobility it uses sword and greatsword. I am saying this because I didn't test other weapons yet but I can imagine that scepter with its symbol or staff might be an option. Mace, even though the damage numbers on the skill tooltip look great, seems to be too slow. Version 1: http://gw2skills.net/editor/?PWwAEx7lJw+YgsJ2IOyLvpXA-zZIPlGlAZKC6VIUwCwEDAA This version focuses on symbols itself and uses the Honor traitline to max out their duration. The extra symbol when casting a heal skill is another benefit. It doesn't offer any utility though and just wants to go full damage and slap. Version 2: http://gw2skills.net/editor/?PWwAEx7lJw+YgsJ2IOAKvnUA-zZIPlGlAZKE6VEUwCwEDAA This focuses more on sustain with healing from meditations and having another regular condition cleanse besides the healing skill and the meditation. Also the ultimates cooldown becomes much lower and can be used more often after using the symbol-skills on a contestant point for example. With this version I could imagine using Litany of Wrath for consistent heal from the placed symbols. Another approach is to trait for virtues. That provides more resolution uptime for the Retribution trait (10% dmg increase while having resolution), condition cleanse and also stability- what the build is missing. Just wanted to share that. Have fun trying the build yourself and maybe we will see more symbol-guardians in pvp soon 🙂 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
