This build is quite good, though I would highly recommend signet of rage over headbutt. You can do a lot more damage, and unleash a lot more primal bursts when you're getting a passive source of adrenaline.

Prefer this over the GS/Mace Burst meta for SoloQ.Much more survivability.Can easily bunker on point.Far range weapon is a big advantage against pew pew classes, which are shot from a distance, while you're at the point.Only one minus is low mobility, but you could try Lynx rune in this case.

Amazing build. I prefer though the signet of rage instead of head butt to keep the adrenaline high.

Close to perfection. Use carrion amulet and rune of leadership. With GS over bow and you can do so much more damage while tanking a lot more damage.

I think this is an amazing build. I vary from this build by wielding sword/shield with rabid amulet to focus on bleeding as a viable second condi, myself. For this, use sword auto attack, longbow 5 (pin down) and shattering blow for bleed stacks while using berserk mode burst on longbow/sword, burst mode on longbow, and longbow 2 (fan of fire) for fire damage. Headbutt and shield 4 (shield bash) create good immobs to keep people in fire fields and allow you to remove immobs on you. Shield 5 (shield stance) is a great opening engage tool for large scrums like the first push at mid to begin matches. Overall, solid stuff.

I use this build but with a few differences, but overall probably best build i have seen as of right now for a warrior. It is super simple to use and in 1v1 fights if you know how to use the stuns its an almost guaranteed win. If at the beginning of the fight you use "Shield Bash" + "Shattering Blow" + "Head Butt" then you should have enough adrenaline to go into berserk. All in all super simple and super fun build i would highly recommend trying it. I'll put link for my changes.

Very nice build, it's strong and fun to play. Sometimes elementalists are hard to kill (too much condi cleanse) but using a bit of CC does the job.

Outrage instead Shattering Blow & Rabid's Amulet instead Wanderer's one. have fun ! One of the best class at moment. Can win 1v2.

Till condi get balanced , best build so far

Lucabuccia gave this build 5 stars May 2016

This build offers the best damage output and condi pressure I've ever dreamt. The fun fact is also the easyness of condi cleansing via Cleansing Ire. Since meta rolls around condi damage, the pressure is insane.

Calcium Carbonate gave this build 5 stars May 2016

An amazingly consistent build that suffered far less than Mesmers or Necros from the removal of Mercenary amulet. Offers condi bomb levels nearing that of the Distracting Strikes build without the massive sacrifices or counters. Compensates for M/Sh+LB mobility limitations with copious immunities, blocks and passive healing. All-around simple and effective bruiser that doesn't suffer vs. condi the way Scrapper does.

i think this is one of the best warrior build in current meta

Hanz gave this build 5 stars May 2016

Currently the strongest warrior build, one that's able to outsustain its opponents instead of relying on ourbursting and hit&run tactics.

Solid damage, ~1k HP regen per second, potentially 20+ seconds of resistance, 2 direct damage immunities, blocks, okay mobility, great condi cleansing.

A great build that I anticipate will be common in season 3. Not hurt nearly as bad as other condition builds by the removal of mercenary amulet. I'd recommend the wanderer's amulet.
