Solid 4, maybe mid to 5. While it's a good build, the only real downside to it is the time investment needed to adjust to some seemingly minor surface changes: Dodge (V) is now part of your rotation, and you must use Greatsword 4 / Sword 3 as your defensive utilities (Block and Evade frames respectively). Sword 3 is risky when there are lingering damage effects scattered around the environment, more-so when the target is mobile, and is low-DPS effective when multiple targets are presented even with Impossible Odds channeled. This build works more than fine if you need a pDPS slot filled in your fractals/raid groups. Edit: I'm updating this to 5 stars for a number of reasons: There's decent support utility via Saint Viktor in the Alliance stance in the form of subgroup stunbreaks and a spammable condi cleanse as well as off-healing that's pretty robust without investing anything into Healing Power. Regardless if you go GS/Sw-Sw or GS/Staff, you have a lot of Defiance break and a slew of CCs and engagement approaches. While there are pDPS elite specializations that can offer different or a wider array of team utility skills, the Vindicator's versatility in approaching different mechanics (defensive use of the Dodge, as well as solid evade frames and GS4's block mechanic) all slide it into the 5 star category for me.
