Gameplay Tips

  • Avoid letting your conditions stack up too high. Swapping weapons frequently will help. Keep an eye out for condition stacks as they might seem small but the number of one stack may be great. When conditions become rampant or too high, as a last resort, using
    can provide extra resistance. Only when conditions become too large to manage should it be pressed.
  • In fights, it is better to burst anything than nothing. Keeping your
    at 3 stacks will make you very sustainable on top of the already existing Might Might that heals you.
  • Dodging frequently will help mitigate damage, stay sustainable by receiving health, and stack up Might Might for more damage output.

This is my go to for roaming with warrior. An extremely strong dps build with great sustain and in the right "hands" is unmerciful. Timing weapon swaps is important as is the use of Berserker's Stance, but it is so strong and has so many tools at it's disposal it can take down even some of the strongest Counter Warrior builds in WvW in 1v1. As far as roaming with Warrior goes, next to hammer, GS/AxeShield is as good as it gets. Just be careful with condis, and time those shield stances and EP's so that they don't overlap, dodge accordingly, and time those bursts well. Against only the cheesiest of condi burst builds from Mesmer's and the like will this build fail, in which case you can usually outrun them. It's pure Meta imo.

Probably the most powerful 1v1 build out there right now for WvW. But not sure why this shows signet of stamina, that does NOT stack with the endurance regen of the food. It should be Bull's Charge for added gap close and CC.

Even more broken in WvW than it is in PvP. Really good damage, mobility, and sustain. Overall weaker than spellbreaker though, especially in 1vX situations.
