If you're looking for a condi guard build it probably doesn't get better than this right now, but to be honest I don't really see the point. It's playable but it's very close to Power Willbender in terms of specializations and even skills, but it's worse in every way except maybe downed cleave. Has the usual condi guard problem of the burst being easily cleansed, but the strike damage portion of the build is quite good at compensating for it. Then again you could just play Power and do more strike damage. Feels rather weak against competent supports and doesn't really have the sustain to 1v1. It's probably really good at climbing to a certain rating range but then kind of fizzles out past that. If the Power variant didn't exist I'd give it a 4/5 but they're so similar it's hard not to draw comparisons.

Burn guardian is not viable anymore and WB isn't enough to bring it back. Anet needs to buff our traits and introduce some condition variety but what I'd like is scepter buffs. Add conditions to the auto at least and speed it up because right now it's trash. Our damage doesn't justify the sustain being this low either. It's in a sad state and I miss playing it but it is what it is.

I like the build and have used it the majority of the season. Righteous Instincts is 100% the way to go. A near constant upkeep of Fury thanks to Inner Fire and the +10% crit from Radiant Power, means you will have a close to 100% crit. 2xTorch#4 hits pretty hard. Adventure Runes/Bal runes/Scholar runes feels OK but difficult to see which are actually better.

I like the idea. But I wouldn't call it a burnbender. seems like it's mostly focused on strike dmg to burning foes. hard to make an effective condi guard with only 1 condi available. but if you were to try it with willbender, maybe look into stacking might by exploiting the high resolution uptime. you could probably get some serious burst from a stack of fire and max might. idk. look into it.
