Hello, Ive been browsing the Tavern and other sites, I based my current build mostly on the Commando one, though made some tweaks, I was curious what people think of my build?


I'm not the best at making Builds though this one has been pretty good, I'm wondering if there is room for improvement or if I can get more synergy out of it, I love to be able to hit hard and crit, but I also tend to die a lot so I did what I can to give myself some armor and health for surviving out there, I use this one build for everything, I don't have a lot of gold to spend to get different gear sets for different occasions. I wanna do a lot of Dungeon Running and WvW with the Guild. I'll get the gold if needed to help improve my build or change stuff up...


On last note, I also use a Staff quite a bit, I love the flexibility with it and I do ok healing which I guess is fine as there is no dedicated healer in this game. Id like to be able to do more to help people with buffs and boons, but I know I can't do everything, Id spread my build out too thin and I'd wind up good at nothing, so I guess damage, and survivability with some boons is good atm?


Anyone able to help here? Tweaks, fixes, synergy or other better builds that can do what I want? Your personal Tips and Tricks as a Guard would be great too, trying to learn here so I can be more help out there with the guild. I'd sure appreciate the help, Thanks!:D

Here is my Build atm:|2.1g.h15.0.0.0|1.1n.a7.0.0.0|1n.7m.1n.7m.1n.7m.1n.7m.1n.7m.1n.7x.|1n.64.1n.64.1n.64.1n.64.1n.64.8c.67|a2.0.u56b.u29b.0|0.0|v.|e

your build is pretty good if your comfortable with it.

This is what I'm currently running

I found it gives me adequate defensive and offensive capabilities for what I want to do with it. I run with sword/focus primarily but if I have too I can switch out to a scepter or a mace if I need to get long range or more defensive abilities I like the sword and focus because it gives me a much better AoE damage with higher survivability I haven't done much WvW or Dungeons yet so i can't advise you on that but if your comfortable with your PvE and Live World events you shouldn't have that much more difficulty I think.

Little overboard on toughness, may want to drop some for vit, get the health up more.  Power is lower than you want, as well.  You will notice that in the lack of damage.  Crits won't make up for lower sustainable damage.

This is Sekkerhund's build, minus consumable buffs:  It took me a while to balance it out, but feels worlds better now.  (Weapons aren't set in stone, always swappable of course, I just keep stats and sigils the same.)

Thank you very much :D I thought Toughness was the big stat for Guards so I did alot of that, getting some good feedback :D love your build Valtyrian :) Ill see what I can do and maybe try em myself if possible...though Sekkerhunds may be hard to do as I cant see his build...

Here is a copy of the build that I run on my Guardian since returning to the game. It seems to have decent survivability and does decent damage. I hate some of the builds with really low HP pools so I tried to add a little more there. I have received some additional feedback on the GS and the recommendation that I generally get is to go hammer (I dislike the play style of the hammer and I love my whirlwind with the GS so I stick with what I like)

With this build you should have Fury and Might up almost the entire time during short fights when solo and if you are grouped and getting them from other sources even better.

This build has decent survivability too with three blinds, aegis, and shield of wrath.

Try it out and let me know what you think.
