<b>Open World Builds</b> are build that excel in defeating monsters or completing events in open world. They focus on self-reliance and buffing themselves or those around them alongside moderate to high damage.

__TOC__
There are three different types of builds in this section:
 
* Event builds focus on dealing AoE damage, supporting others, or completing world events such as the Octovine Meta Event or defeating The Shatterer.
 
* Solo builds focus on extreme self-reliance. They may occasionally function in world events but their primary purpose is to be able to easily handle solo content such as champions, story missions, or hero points.
 
* Tagging builds focus on being able to hit as many mobs as possible in a short time. They bring less damage to the table so they don't prevent others from tagging monsters as well and use very niche or specific setups to accomplish maximum potential.
 
  
You can tell which type of build you're looking at by checking the "Designed For" section in the header. Some builds work well as multiple types, some only function well in their specified type.

Welcome to '''Open World'''! Here you can find builds for completing story content, participating in meta events, farming holiday events, and a lot more!

==Solo Builds==

:Solo builds focus on personal survivability above anything else and typically require moderate to high damage and personal buffs. They are ideal for completing story content, difficult hero points, achivement hunting, or just running around by yourself.

==Tagging Builds==
 +
:Tagging builds focus on very rapid AoE '''hits''' (which doesn't always mean high damage). This allows a player to receive "credit" for many mob kills in a short span of time. These builds are best used at the Lake Doric Leather Farm or Mad King's Labyrinth. Tagging builds fill a very specific niche and may not perform well in other areas of the game.

'''Q: Can I play these builds in dungeons, fractals, and/or raids?'''
  
A: No, these builds are for open world. When joining a dungeon, fractal, or raid group, you should play a [[Fractal]] or [[Raid]] build. Many of these builds have a Standard gear variant that allows you to easily swap to a similar fractal/raid build, which is linked in the same section that the gear variant is listed.

Some bulids feature a '''Standard''' variant which uses gear similar to that of its raid or fractal counterparts. While this may not be optimal for open world, it allows those that frequently do raids or fractals to easily enter open world with an effective build.

A: Yes, but your effectiveness will be limited. Having the right gear and traits is important for maximizing a build's potential. You can still run a build that's close to the recommended build, but you should work your way up to the right gear/traits eventually.

'''Q: I haven't reached level 80 and don't have these skills/traits unlocked. What should I do?'''
  
A: Under level 80, most content is trivially easy, so you shouldn't worry about running the absolute best build. Instead, you should try out different weapons, skills, and traits to learn how they work. If you start finding story missions/normal enemies difficult, make sure you're wearing gear appropriate to your level.

If you aren't, you can always visit an Armorsmith or Weaponsmith which always offer basic gear within your level range.

A: Some builds require high damage to function, but with most you can easily substitute in a few pieces of defensive gear if you find yourself having difficulty staying alive. We advise changing out trinkets before weapons or armor.

*Power builds: Add '''Marauder's''' or '''Knight's''' gear. Valkyrie trinkets are also excellent.

'''Q: The build suggests (X weapon/skill/trait) but I find (Y weapon/skill/trait) more fun to use. Can I use that instead?'''
  
A: Sure! In most cases open world is more forgiving than other content, and running something slightly suboptimal is not going to cause a major dent in a large group's damage output. In general, you should bring one of four things to the table: Damage, Crowd Control (CC), Healing, or Boons. As long as you can provide a large amount of at least one of those, you'll be fine.
+
A: The short answer is "sure!". The long answer is that you should study the class and learn why those traits are being taken. From there you can make decisions about other traits or weapons based off your current knowledge of the game and optimize for your own fun while maintaining a decent build :)

Solo Builds

Solo builds focus on personal survivability above anything else and typically require moderate to high damage and personal buffs. They are ideal for completing story content, difficult hero points, achivement hunting, or just running around by yourself.

Tagging Builds

Tagging builds focus on very rapid AoE hits (which doesn't always mean high damage). This allows a player to receive "credit" for many mob kills in a short span of time. These builds are best used at the Lake Doric Leather Farm or Mad King's Labyrinth. Tagging builds fill a very specific niche and may not perform well in other areas of the game.

About This Section

When new players ask what build they should run, veterans often answer with “any build is viable in open world.” While this might be true for veteran players, it doesn't help players who are still learning the game. For someone coming into level 80 maps for the first time, or trying to do story instances alone, running with a random unoptimized build can be immensely frustrating.


These builds are designed for players who need help with open world and story content. They're divided into three sections reflecting different situations one might want to build for in open world. Each build provides suggestions about what gear, traits, and skills will be the most effective and provide the best chance of success.


Many of these builds feature two equipment variants: a "Standard" variant which shares gear with common fractal/raid builds, as well as an "Optimal" variant for players who have spare gold or aren't interested in group content. They also list variant traits and skills that are worth swapping to in specific situations.


To all new and returning Guild Wars 2 players, we hope you find these builds useful!

FAQ

Q: Can I play these builds in dungeons, fractals, and/or raids?

A: No, these builds are for open world. When joining a dungeon, fractal, or raid group, you should play a Fractal or Raid build. Some bulids feature a Standard variant which uses gear similar to that of its raid or fractal counterparts. While this may not be optimal for open world, it allows those that frequently do raids or fractals to easily enter open world with an effective build.


Q: I don't have the right stats/runes/sigils/unlocked traits for this build. Can I still play it?

A: Yes, but your effectiveness will be limited. Having the right gear and traits is important for maximizing a build's potential. You can still run a build that's close to the recommended build, but you should work your way up to the right gear/traits eventually. Some builds will not function without certain traits, so its worth looking into.


Q: I haven't reached level 80 and don't have these skills/traits unlocked. What should I do?

A: Under level 80 you shouldn't worry about running the absolute best build. Instead, you should try out different weapons, skills, and traits to learn how they work. If you start finding story missions/normal enemies difficult, make sure you're wearing gear appropriate to your level. If you aren't, you can always visit an Armorsmith or Weaponsmith which always offer basic gear within your level range.


Q: I find it really hard to survive with glass cannon stats. Are there any other options I can use?

A: Some builds require high damage to function, but most allow you to easily swap your Trinkets for more defensive options.

  • Builds that rely on Power can swap some pieces to Soldier, Knight, or Valkyrie
  • Builds that rely on Conditions can swap some pieces to Dire or Trailblazer.
  • A full gearing guide for open world is currently under construction!


Q: The build suggests (X weapon/skill/trait) but I find (Y weapon/skill/trait) more fun to use. Can I use that instead?

A: The short answer is "sure!". The long answer is that you should study the class and learn why those traits are being taken. From there you can make decisions about other traits or weapons based off your current knowledge of the game and optimize for your own fun while maintaining a decent build :)


Q: I would like to contribute suggestions/gameplay tips/new builds. Where do I start?

A: MetaBattle is a community wiki where anyone can contribute! Feel free to edit the build pages or create your own build page. More information can be found at Tutorial and Style Manual.
