WvW

WvW Zerg builds for Guild Wars 2. A wide variety of meta, great and good GW2 builds and guides for all classes.

Tier placement is based on large scale. For smaller group sizes, check the GvG section. The tiers can essentially be read as:

  • Meta = Used in ~100% of groups
  • Great = Widely used
  • Good = Niche

Difficulty score is based on mechanical difficulty to master. There are very few builds in WvW that are difficult to get to baseline effectiveness (i.e. giving stability as a Firebrand is enough for baseline effectiveness, but far from mastering the class).

Section builds are up to date for the February 27, 2024 game patch.
