jpg.1783 Posted November 14, 2018 Share Posted November 14, 2018 As the title says -- exploring the Guardian after a long absence. I've managed to unlock both Dragon Hunter and Firebrand after running Heart of Thorns story content. Haven't explored using a long bow for the DH -- and the current build don't actually use the Bow. (not to mention, I'm so used to rocking the Scepter)I've gravitated towards the Firebrand more given it's more "balanced" and more interesting specialization mechanic. I've gone through Metabattle and while it's pretty straight forward in terms of builds in every game mode. I have a Berserker's Set that I can always fall back to for open world. I've tinkered with Magi for a bit, and I don't think it's going to be serviceable in solo content. I was hoping to discover other builds that don't necessary involve min/max stats -- hybrid builds are aren't that popular on mainstream content. Was hoping to get some ideas here from more experienced players. What I'm looking at right now is trying to maximize both Healing and Condition damage for a sustainable type of Guardian. Again not to min / max but just to enjoy the range of utility that that the tomes and mantras can provide. Here is what I've been tinkering with so far.I read up on Shaman's being trash in general but I think it fits Firebrand really well. I could be wrong about the stat combination but right now it answers one of the Guardian's struggles : low health pool. I was leaning towards Condition Damage given that I want to maximize the use of all tomes, and play around with the Axe skill bar which focuses on Bleeding and Burning. The skill bar is something I'm still working on but right now it's stuffed with Mantra for both offense , healing/ cleansing, and debuffs. Hope to hear your thoughts.
