Saiyan.1704 Posted October 3, 2017 Share Posted October 3, 2017 Bunker HealBrand BuildPer your preference in Honor tree:Invigorating Bulwark's 25% increased heal to alliesvsProtective Reviver's faster downed rez.Build is the best team heal spec in the game at the moment, will keep up your +1 Scourge duo partner better than Ele. Bunking a node doesn't improve all that much on Magi amulet. Shout Utilities Build variant that most bunker guards run don't cleanse better, nor bunk better than this build.Feel free to ask questions,Enjoy.Credits: Saw Sorem.9157 tank a 1v3, I just had to find and replicate his bunker build.Credits: Sorem.9157 for the Amulet suggestionEDITPowerbrand Bunker Healway V2! Ryan turned me on to the Firebrand Mender build variant again, so I changed it a bit to the playstyle I fancy. It's basically the same build except this has more of a damage oriented role while retaining much of its bunk prowess. Brief overview,!! Honor: - I figured the traits that increased % healing to allies in Honor tree is nice but if you can potentially increase your Bunk Time on a point, that's actually better in my opinion. Because the way I see it, you can only heal your team so much before you eventually run into a situation where it's like hitting a brick wall; your team is full of Engi/Rangers/Revs/etc with no damages and are destined to deleting themselves in the mid fights... your team will go down... so you can at least fall back to the bunking role and pray you can 1vX long enough for team to recollect. So I chose Writ Persistence trait in that regards.!! Valor: - Self explanatory.!! 1-handers: Using Axe + Quickness lore is a must for me... the axe is incredibly slow otherwise. It does in-fact deal more damage than Sword while offering good CC. The symbol is worth casting when kiting and not getting hit, swapping to Scepter + immob to ensure 2 symbols stack on a target is a nice combo.! Scepter is a range weapon I feel I need. I suppose Sword is good for a nice Teleport + Judges. Sometimes you don't necessarily NEED to be on top of a person 24/7 so i'll just stick with Scepter for now... especially when fighting Scourges.!! This build is otherwise the exact same build as the one listed in OP. It just has a different play style - one that i'm actually happy with. The healing is still very good. I won a 2v3 with a good Zerker Necro as a pug duo ptner. Fought against 2 Warriors and an Ele - had to pick up the downed necro twice before we finally managed to out-sustain the trio classes. (granted, ele just sucked but you get the point)!! Just food for thought (:!! P.S! Condi Firebrand still sucks the big ones... i'm done theory crafting and stress testing those builds lol.. they're meant for 1 role in a given match but if that fails completely... there's no other role to fall back on and they have HUGE weaknesses vs power competent players. Even these bunker builds can at least hold a point for a reasonable amount of time, team support, and even push thieves/mesmers/engi off point. So this build has multiple roles to fall back on in case one role fails. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
