WVW BUILDS

DISCLAIMER: This repository of builds are specific for group-oriented WvW gameplay and are optimized for our guild’s raid style. Each build is carefully tested for the most optimal ratio of effective power (EP) and effective health (EHP). While some builds may fall under the “META” category to many, our guild does not make a commitment to using only popular “META” builds. Our builds crafted to our specifications based on our goals, our strengths, and our group cohesiveness.

Build
These are REQUESTED and PREFERRED builds, but not required for participation.  Our group composition supports builds that utilize certain strong offensive and defensive capabilities while maintaining the ability to compete with the current “meta game”. As the “meta game” shifts, and as ArenaNet makes skill/trait changes, new class/build options may become viable and our group composition may shift to balance with the changes.
