MetaBattle is a database for Guild Wars 2 builds, teams, and guides. These are created, edited, and rated by the community. The volunteer staff curates these lists by tagging some of them as meta. .For PvE, meta will generally indicate it's a build that does well for it's profession (A.K.A. profession-agnostic meta). For PvP & WvW, meta is what the top players use in competition. Regardless of meta-status, the community is encouraged to rank builds with their own ratings.
Volunteer staff consists of: (PvE) Snow Crows, a top-tier dungeon, fractal, & raid guild, as well as one prominent theorycrafter from the community: DEKeyz; (WvW) Haru, captain of Gun Squad, a premier GvG guild that has won many matchups and the June 2015 T2 GvG Invitational; (PvP) Hanz, a gamer who analyzes weekly/monthly tournaments to determine what the pros are playing and why.
Following are lists of builds submitted by the community and curated by our team:
The community is encouraged to interact with the site. We've heard multiple issues about how hard the system was to use and we've tried to simplify a great deal of the work involved. The only feature requiring a MetaBattle account is rating a build. Comments can be submitted as a guest (but you'll have better features when signing into Disqus).
Link Build Info Social
Hover for tooltips: Skill boxes show their names; The three lines will offer loose roles; Specializations provide trait orders; Rating percentage gives the number of votes. Go ahead and try those examples above. (Normally, you can click the title, rating, and comment links).
To rate builds: You must be logged in. After logging in, choose between Basic, Good, or Great, type a message, and hit next for guidelines.
To comment as a guest: (1) Type a message in "Join the discussion...", (2) Click the input below "sign up with disqus", and (3) Check "I'd rather post as a guest". (You will not receive notifications for replies, unless you sign up with a Disqus account).
To engage with the team: Introduce yourself to MetaBattle's Discord Server. Discord is a text-chat server that’s free, secure, and can work directly in your browser (though you may download the app on both desktop and mobile devices). After following the link, choose a name and continue on to the server. It is honestly that easy! You can discuss general topics, submit a bug-report, or peruse our PvP, PvE, and WvW channels. This is probably the quickest way to contact someone on the team for site-wide issues or other higher-level conversations.
And, finally, to wrap everything up:
