If you don't mind losing some passive mobility from Lynx:

  • - better group utility and sustain vs conditions.

Once again a strong option, sustain buffs made a huge difference to an already tanky build. Tons of healing/barrier, some group support, great damage, good mobiliy, unblockable CCs, and it's not even hard to play.

The recent buffs helped, but not having stability in it's kit (unlike spellbreaker) is a huge hinderance. Especially considering this is meant to be more of a brawling style fighter. It can do a very great job as a duelist, but it will never shine without a rework to Dragon Stance- giving it more QoL with the ability to cancel out of it and store bullets, and having Stability access on Triggerguard or Dragonscale Defense. It's so close to being great but not there yet.

I think all the current reviews are a bit overly harsh. Can no longer be an insanely broken dps/duelist/support but is still a strong dps. You can also duel against certain matchups that have limited cc and condi. The recent changes are a bit strange but the aegis on gunsaber 4 is a nice touch though the change to gunsaber 3 is a bit clunky. The removal of stab means you must use your aegis and movement skills reactively to charge your dragon trigger. Can provide alot of prescence for a competent team but with much lower carry potential then it once had.

This was the single most broken build in the game last patch. Horrible players were convinced they were skilled, and warriors are whining left and right after the fair adjustment that was made. Bladesworn is still decent, but this build in particular is no longer viable. Better off playing the other 2 elite specs or even core.

THE meta build for Warrior in PvP. It has very high levels of sustain for both itself and nearby allies, along with strong unblockable burst. Very skill reliant for both the player and opponent due to very telegraphed, high-powered skills. Great 1v1 and teamfighting potential. This build definitely deserves "Great" rating if not being outright being a "Meta" one. It's not as powerful as Vindicator as it has less/harder to land damage, but it absolutely is part of the current PvP metagame.

This is a fun, reliable, solid off-noder. With axe/shield, demo rune, and fighter amulet I find it really durable while still being able to bust out some decent burst from dragon trigger 2, axe 3, and gunsaber 3 -> 2 -> 5 -> 4. Has pretty decent team utility with all the shout support as well. I wouldn't call it on the same tier as Willbender so I can't rate it 5 stars in good conscience but it's nonetheless a build I'll continue playing - it also probably won't be nerfed later this month as well!

By far the best warrior build right now. It's not the perfect duelist (tho it can outplay many other specs, including most willbenders, tempests, mesmers (ez, they also cry afterwards OFFICER I CANT BLOCK!!!), willbenders and many others) and definitely not someone who can really hold a node in a 2v1, most of the times at least, but it is spectacular in teamfights. INSANE amounts of healing (300-450k a match average in my case), with quite a bit of damage (350-500k average a match) and I have made it all the way up to plat on this build, despite never having played Warrior in PvP before the current league. This build has everything. The guy who put 1 star to it was probably hoping nobody would play it, but I daresay it's pretty meta now... P.S. I forgot to mention I'm playing it with Pistol instead of Shield in the second slot, as suggested by Sirhazelot and Rune of the Soldier

It's a nice build that finally returns the feeling of hambow (without both weapon sets) back to warrior in the PVP space. With the hands of high skilled players with good game sense this build is a monster to push off points. This spec also makes it good enough to be flexible enough to run a high number of runes and still have a notable difference between players. If you see a Soulbeast or a lot of high blockable DPS players on the other side that shield block save lives. You could even add Rune of Sanctuary if you want to add barrier on top of more barrier to be even more annoying for the other team. Remember your Dragon Trigger isnt wholly for damage, it's such a mind game of: "When is this Warrior going to pull the trigger AND in what way" with that annoying CC attached to it AND healing from might stacking.

I personally enjoy playing with the pistol better for added burst and free agis + a bit of barrier with unshakable mountain. When understanding how the bursts works with this spec, you get a very strong duelist that can teamfights with loads of support and AOE CC. Make use of the gunsaber kit and pace the ammos so you dont burn them all out. Gunsaber cleave is great and has a lot of range options to kite/chase targets. Best warrior build ATM with crazy survabilities !

Agree that this is the best warrior's build for conquest right now. It has a insane survivability, a lot more than spellbreaker, and deal a very decent amount of damage. I just prefer to use sword and warhorn for better mobility, boost damage of dragon trigger by 25% and a little bit of group support. Edit: after more practice, I end up prefering axes and shield rather than sword and warhorn, but i replaced berseker amulet by demolisher amulet for more tankiness.

Arguably the best build in PvP right now. The new king of versatility now that Core Necro is nerfed. Damage can feel lackluster when first learning, but is very high once you figure out how to do damage.
