Best backline open field/defending build there is. Dwarf herald is slightly more necessary rev spec but this is still very strong. Very weak build inside enemy keeps and towers, dies easily as people can cloud it down thus 4 stars as you're better off in the more survivable retribution version or staff weaver often times.

This however deserves 5 stars when there is no commander, enemy is much stronger than you or it is only open field fights.

Best and easiest build for poor man in WvW so far, monstrous damage, easy to get away from pressure thanks to Impossible Odds and Riposting Shadows. A build truly meant for pirate ship.

Best herald build for pirateship or if you play like an ele. Most heralds use the frontline build esp if you don't pirateship 24/7. So for the situation described it deserves 5 stars. But you should prob just play frontline and push like a man.

For pugging it doesn't get much better than this. A+ aoe damage from a safe distance with a very versatile kit. Plenty of evasion for sustain, glint heal as the panic button, bit of group utility, etc. As fun as it is effective.

not gvg meta anymore. Since winter 17/18 and nerfs of the warrior bubble ("wind of disenchantment"), "coalescence of ruin" and sourge shades in spring, guilds tend to play rather melee focussed and rev is played with dragon and dwarf (or demon) legends and corresponding trait lines. sometimes there is even NO revenant in a comp. however this build is great for a pirateship comp

Use malicious reprisal in devastation tree if want to be top dps in your squad. Play like a pro not a casual. :****

A staple build in any pirateship comp. This build is offers the highest consistent damage in the game.

Excellent build and coming back to meta with the current pirate ship meta forming post-PoF. This build has replaced Condi Rev at this time as the defacto go-to rev build. Gear in they current meta may have some alterations, but functionally, the build is the same.
