Bronze Medal - Basic
Hanz said this build was basic last month

It's one of those builds that might be workable but there really is no point for them to exist. If you feel like playing Staff with Sword/Shield then just switch the amulet to Sage and you've got a much stronger build, or ditch staff for GS and at least have a real burst combo.

I think something like this used to be a thing in WvW, but just doesn't really work in Conquest especially post-HoT.
