Really underrated roaming build. Good sustain, decent damage, ability to adjust on the go, and, like others mentioned --- really fun to play!

i run this build and it actually is stupidly fun to play while roaming with its sustain and burst potential

I think this is one of the most underrated roamers currently. Despite the relative lack of popularity (although I've encountered a few enthusiasts), this is amazing in most 1v1s and smallscale group combat. The tomes make it ridiculously versatile, and it excels at both sustained and burst damage. The only true downside is the mobility while roaming, but the leap/teleport skills can ease that (or just equip a staff for the swiftness, really).

Has way more tools at its disposal than DH or core guard - be it condi damage or power, ranged attacks or CC spam, this has an answer to it.

For weakness maybe I'd list extreme burst damage. There are plenty of ways to mitigate or even avoid pressure entirely, but if you fail to anticipate the burst you can get punished hard, because burst healing and invulnerability windows are probably the only things this lacks. Unblockables can also be dangerous.

Very strong in isolated 1v1s and smallscale group combat, but for actual roaming I'll give it a bit lower rating only because it lacks to mobility/disengage potential of other builds in that tier, like mesmer or warrior.
