Maybe it never coalesced into something brilliant. Maybe it never made it off the ground floor. Maybe we based our better ideas off of it. Basic builds are anywhere from downright bad to just shy of being good enough to showcase. These builds share the widest ratings and can lead to wildly differing levels of success.

Focused on: Support.

Designed for:


Overview

Specializations




Variants

Retribution over Invocation is a more tanky option which fares better against CC due to the added Stability (quite useful against D/P thieves and Dragonhunters):

also take jalis over glint to benefit the bunker abilities

Usage

General

  • Invoking a legend will reset energy to 50, break stun, and remove one condition.
  • Weapon swap will cleanse one condition and when you hit it will cleanse another one.
  • Blind negate dmg around you and not your tablet. use it wisely. also works versus shatter clones.
  • weakness is another way to negate dmg so use
  • you should be with perma fury, might, swiftness, regen and protection thus gaining more 10% dmg and +7% dmg to direct dmg and condition dmg from Can't find such trait "Elder's Force"! Please refer to our trait index and Can't find such trait "Ferocious Aggression"! Please refer to our trait index
  • you can get fast 25 might stacks with and thus your dmg is much higher and also the mace "hybrid" dmg is nice with poison, burning and torment will make anyone to use his cleanse abilities fast or they will hit for about 2k dps from conditions. also good to use on down to poison them and aoe with burning and torment the area.
  • put stability on the middle of the cap point so enemies will hit with weakness while your team have stability.
  • use to negate 50% dmg off your team for 5 sec before they start their burst combo.
  • ventari skills are uninterruptible so while you are cc'd you can use the skills on you to proc blind, protection and heal on you or kb.

swiftness Stacking

  • Start the match on Dwarf stance (Jalis) and immediately activate the following 4 skills for party swiftness buffing:

Might Might and Fury Fury stacking

    • Superior Rune of Altruism Superior Rune of Altruism
      Superior Rune of Altruism.pngSuperior Rune of Altruism
      (1): +25 Healing Power (2): When using a heal skill, grant 3 stacks of might to nearby allies for 8 seconds. (Cooldown: 10s) (3): +50 Healing Power (4): +10% Boon Duration (5): +100 Healing Power (6): When you use a heal skill, grant fury to nearby allies for 8 seconds. (Cooldown: 10s)
      provides an aoe Fury Fury and 3 stacks of Might Might when using healing skill with 10 sec cd.
    • provide also 3 stacks of Might Might and Fury Fury
    • and also provide 3 stacks of Might Might
    • so all together your team can ended up with 9 stacks of might, fury, regen, protection, swiftness
    • if you are not being focused you can stack even 18 might stacks on you team with good skills rotations.

Healing

    • this skill provide with 3 sec cd nice aoe healing 1490 and protection and blind (around you and not your tablet!!!), and every 10 sec might and fury. try to spamm it when needed near allies.
    • to heal allies afar from you just send it as it got 1500 range. and try to move it inline with your allies as it heal allies it passes through
    • provide passive aoe 444 healing every 3 sec
    • it's your high heal ability with 4460 healing and cost energy so use it wisely as it got short 2 sec cd.
    • as it got 1 sec activation time use first and send your tablet with to its location for 5950 healing to allies.
    • remember it give alacrity so it very good to reduce cd's of your healing skills from shield and staff
    • cleanse 2 conditions and aoe heal 2400 allies also blast finisher.
    • give protection and heal allies for 2570
    • this 3rd staff AA provide 2 orbs around your hitting area. they give regen and swiftness and heals for 400 each your allies. although it's hard to notice try to fight near your allies to increase the chance for them to step on it.
    • every time you use your tablet skills they will proc 1 fragment which heal for 1840 ally who pick it up. as you spam your healing skill it will buff your healing abilities for you or your allies.

Conditions Cleanse

  • - 3 conditions but cost 25 nrg. use it wisely
  • - 2 conditions but has high cd of 15 sec and 1 sec activation time so easy to interrupt
  • - light field so use to blast and if you got enough nrg or your team if they have blast finisher . tricky as you need to learn your skills cd rotation
  • - for every 10 nrg will cleanse 1 conditions. if you not taking focus its a great skill. but in average you will have below 50 during fight thus it will cleanse 3-5 conditions. be careful as you will be with 0 nrg so usually swap legends
  • - self 3 conditions cleanse. as the cleanse proc after the use of the healing skill the poison will take effect on your healing.
  • - not a cleanse but reduce condition dmg by 20%.
  • on weapon/legend swap and on hit 2 cleanse each.

CC

  • - nice short cd aoe cc. try to face your target. great versus ress or stomps
  • - only when you are not focused as its cost too much nrg. or when your team is ready to burst. also great to peel off enemy from your allies.
  • - although not common skill . with 25 might stacks the skill start to shine with 2.5k dmg
  • - great on point decap, versus ress or stomps but careful you will left with 0 nrg.

Counters

  • Heavy Condition pressure while your nrg is too low
  • Heavy CC chain with no team support around you to peel off you.
  • Thieves unless you blind them at the right moment.

but still you should get +1 if you have trouble and you should survive longer above 30 sec.

I'd probably change the sigils and runes since they seem kind of sub-optimal, but Ventari/Jalis Revs are probably the best at bunkering in PvP in the game. Ventari is really clunky to use though, and it doesn't heal much without proper traits, but as a bunker specifically It does its job better than anyone else.

That "tread" is about someone complaining about players going afk in their matches. There are thousands of bronze/silver/etc players, many of which use builds that are meta, so your argument doesn't hold much weight, as does any rank-based argument.

Build is trash any variation of support ventari is not going to work. I mean there is even a tread about a support ventplayer on the forums strugglin in silver. https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/forum/game/pvp/the-silver-curse/first#post6626068

Fashion Mage gave this build 5 stars June 2017

A very good build for bunkering. I would consider using Jalis over Glint simply because of the huge amount of damage reduction and the stun break, and Retribution seems like a much better choice than Invocation since the purpose of the build isn't really to deal damage. Ventari's elite spam let's you decap points fairly easily, so that's a pretty big plus for the build. Its allied healing is a bit lacking since it has no outgoing healing traits, but it still offers pretty decent support in other areas while being a good bunker.

If you know your roles and weapon tricks etc you can sustain and bunker the hell out of everyone. it has GREAT decap potential from just detonating the elite repeatedly. currently use this and hardly have any issues.
