Every Guild Wars 2 build for the Warrior uses adrenaline gained by attacking in combat. Adrenaline builds up to fuel a burst skill, which has three power-levels depending on the how much adrenaline has been accumulated. The burst skill available is determined by the main-hand weapon currently in use. For example, Skull Crack will stun the opponent for a longer time on higher levels of adrenaline.
Control Tank with Mace and Shield
Weapon Set: Mace, Shield
Focus: Control, Defense
About: This Guild Wars 2 build for Warriors uses a mace and shield for weapons and focuses on physical utilities for control of your enemy. This will allow us to get plenty of abilities that will annoy the hell out of any opponent locking them up, knocking them down, and interrupting. Since this is a defensive build you can focus on toughness and vitality for your runes and amulet. We also get 5% of our toughness converted to power through our trait line so it would be smart to focus on stacking toughness to benefit both stats. I recommend Superior Rune of the Dolyak and the Soldier’s Amulet.
Dual Wielding Axes for Critical Burst Damage
Weapon Set: Dual Axes
Focus: Critical Damage
About: This build is an all out offensive machine so don’t look to this build for a lot of survivability. The objective is to burn down your opponent as fast as possible using high critical damage, burst damage, precision (which increases your critical hit chance), and backing it up with as much power as possible. We will do this by building adrenaline as fast as possible and using the burst skill Eviscerate. I feel this build will be very strong whether in PVP, WvW, or Dungeons.
Ranged Builds Explained for Both Rifle and Bow
Weapon Set: Rifle, Bow
Focus: Damage, Support
About: My way of building the Guild Wars 2 ‘Ranged Warrior’ using a rifle and bow. I think there are simply two routes of building the ‘Ranged Warrior’, one is bow and one is Rifle. I think the Rifle is the most powerfull one and bow is only used for killing alot of very weak trash mobs. I’m using the Rifle build as my main damage at the moment and it may change over time!
