Still really powerful - if you catch someone off guard they go down within a second or so. Stay away from SB or decent weavers. Lots of fun. The more aggressive version (stand your ground instead of contemplation of purity, and zeal instead of virtues) works really well if you're below plat as well. Give it a shot.
Been enjoying this build for a long time, actually the first build i played as a guardian and it feels easy to use and powerful if in the right hands.
it's a very solid and fluid build that compensates the lack of mobility of the Radiant hammer. but it has its drawbacks: whirling wrath is a very slow skill and this prevents it from performing an unexpected burst, this is a very serious disadvantage especially in the high ranks (from plat2, plat 3) however it is an almost equal build of the hammer variant and if you know how to use it it can become even more effective than the Radiant hammer. for it's burst and it's mobility, 4 star rating.
Top tier soloq build, I see them in every game. Has the burst needed to carry.
Take sigil of energy on both sets rather than exposure on GS, since it really helps with survivability, and those extra 5 stacks of vuln don't do enough to be worth it imo. Retribution rather than Lesser Signet of Wrath 100% of the time; just time your burst for when they can't dodge it all ;) Also rune of the Scholar over lynx on smaller maps, since you have enough mobility with sword 2, GS 3, and judge's intervention. Otherwise, top tier build that outshines most in the current meta due to high burst, decent sustain, and ridiculous amounts of condi removal.
Nothing new, radiance guard has been viable for more than a year now. Splitting GS and Hammer into separate pages was requested by several people so we're doing it. A+ burst damage as expected, one of the most popular ranked builds right now.
