List of GW2 PvE Fractal and Dungeon builds ranging from meta/recommended to viable.
If you're a new player without access to elite specializations, check out the Roaming section in the Open World Category for builds that can be played with only the Core specializations unlocked.
Fractal builds are similar to Raid builds, but due to the stat bonuses gained from fractal potions some builds are able to make adjustments to their gear to optimize their damage.
In general, fractals encourage power DPS builds (as bosses can be defeated before the sustained damage of condition DPS builds ramp up). In some cases in high-level fractals, condition DPS builds can break even with power DPS builds but will usually not outperform them.
Builds rated "Meta" are not necessarily what most people are using, but are considered by high-end guilds to be the most effective fractal builds available, and "Recommended" by our PvE curator, Troupe. You can help rate, comment, and discuss these builds even if they're already tagged meta, great, or good.
