MetaBattle is a database for Guild Wars 2 builds, teams, and guides. These are created and rated by the community. Our team helps curate this list by tagging some of them as ''meta''. Though meta generally indicates popularity/effectiveness, in Guild Wars 2 there are some caveats. <span class="show-next-on-click">[<span class="faux-link">more</span>]</span><span class="hidden">Our PvE team will generally indicate meta for a build that does well for it's profession in instanced content. (In this case, meta is not cross-profession). For WvW/PvP builds, meta happens to be what the very top of the player base is using in tournaments/competitive play. Our hope is that these lists of builds will help the community decide what is stronger/easier to play. The community is capable of ranking all builds on their own as well. So regardless of whether a build is meta or not, you can see what the community has ranked the build.

Our team consists of multiple members. On the PvE side we are helped by Snow Crows, a top-tier dungeon/raid guild, as well as some prominent theorycrafters from the community: DEKeyz, towelcat, et al. On WvW builds we rely on Haru, captain of Gun Squad, a premier GvG guild that has won many matchups and the June 2015 T2 GvG Invitational. For PvP builds, our moderator Hanz, helps watch weekly/monthly tournaments to determine what the pros are playing and why.

Hovering over pieces of this row will give you extra information. For instance the skill boxes will tell you what the skill name is in the tooltip. The three lines will tell the "roles" the build is loosely guided towards. The trait names will tell you which traits to choose inside that trait line. The rating percent will tell you how many people voted in parentheses (e.g. "100% (6)" means six people voted to give the build a 100% rating).
