Kuma.1503 Posted January 28, 2021 Share Posted January 28, 2021 If there's one thing I love about Gw2, it's buildcraft. There are so many stat types that look useless on the surface, but can actually be useful with the right build. Here's just a few examples of builds I've made work:Weaver utilizing a mixture of Marshal and Celestial gear with Antitoxin runes for WvW. It's nigh unkillable 1v1, and I chose to make up for it's lack of pressure with strength and battle sigils, making it easy to stack to 25 might by blasting fire fields. This build doubles as my go-to for soloing difficult bounties, Hero Points, or when I'd like a cozy run through HoT. Engineer with a mixture of Wanderer's and Commander's stats. Imagine pre-nerf Prot Holo in PvP. In ran a paladin amulet for a decent mixture for pressure and sustain.Now imagine it with a ton of concentration on top (and about ~200 ferocity because I run berserker weapons), and you have my build. I love this build because it enables so many different fun, solo friendly builds on my engineer. I've found that this is a great mix of stats for soloing fractals, dungeons, and bounties. Flamethrower scrapper that consistently upkeeps 25 might and quicknessProt Holo for soloing bounties, but with near permanent uptime on prot, regen, fury, and might.Regular old scrapper, running the traits: Kinetic Stabilizers, Mass Momentum, and Short fuse. This lets me give myself long durations of stability whenever I CC a mob or deal breakbar damage, might whenever I gain stability, frequent bursts of quickness, and perma fury.Drunk Holo/Scrapper. Chug your elixirs, give yourself every boon in the game (except alacrity), go hamor Static Discharge with Kinetic battery, which lets me sit on a permenant ~17+ seconds of quickness. Note: you could use this same gearset on a Boonbeast to great effect.Some other builds I've ran include: Plaguedoctor Scourge, Saraph+Viper FIrebrand. A good mixture of support and condi damage. Firebrand, I've found, doesn't need vitality to stay alive. You can easily keep yourself topped off with just a small amount of healing power and some concentration. Full-Bringer Deadeye. ...No I'm not kidding. Yes, that was a Bleach pun. Many considered it the worst arc in the series, so I made the worst possible wvw build to ever fight against. If anyone doesn't know what stats bringer gives (I don't blame you, who runs bringer stats?) it's Vitality, Precision, Expertise. If you want to do... anything deadeye is known for like, y'know, damage, this build isn't for you. But, this just so happens to have the perfect stat set for a bunker immobilize build. Vitality to ensure that any attempts to swat you away fail, Expertise so that you can spam 2 to your heart's content and keep some poor soul immobilized forever, Precision, so you crits can generate extra malice, allowing you to consistently proc Maleficent Seven. I run this build as a meme when playing WvW with my friends. If anyone tries to mess with us, I lock down the target, they burst them, rinse repeat until they're all dead.Aanyway, in conclusion, most stat types in this game have a place. Perhaps not in endgame PvE, but theres so much more to this game than raids and fractals. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
