Some traits are obviously more powerful for certain builds, but I want to focus on the traits that should almost always be brought in any kind of build as they bring some sort of utility or sustain.

Warriors can get traits in the defense line for a passive endure pain at 25% or another that grants stability when CC'ed these traits are useful in any build or play style for a warrior.

Guardians can get a trait in the Honor line called Resolute Healer(10 pts in) this trait generates a shield of absorption when you begin to revive an ally. Shield of Absorption is the Guardian's 5th ability with the shield, it generates a dome that pushes back foes from an area and blocks incoming projectiles. This trait is wonderful for any type of Guardian build in sPvP as it basically serves as a free revive, allies will love watching you knock enemies away and reviving them.

What are some other traits for different professions that are almost always useful in any type of build?

It's really about team build and composition. I feel as if all traits are powerful in their own separate ways and if used correctly with the right team composition, you are unstoppable (granted you have the skill).

Great topic though. I hope to see others post in it.

From what I have done/seen, most Elementalists will be grabbing the Earth Signet for the Immobilize. I also tend to use the Fire Signet as well for the free burn, and for that, there is a very useful trait 10 points into Earth spec; reduced Signet recharge time by 10%

for the ele:

http://wiki.guildwar...ntal_Attunement
this is a must have imho, especially because its a t1 trait

http://wiki.guildwar...ng_Wave_(trait)
this one is strong too

http://wiki.guildwar...ncer's_Alacrity
http://wiki.guildwar...i/Internal_Fire
maybe some eles will tell me they dont use fire, but i think those are must haves too for maximizing dmg

http://wiki.guildwar...m/wiki/Icy_Mist
complete op, if some1 uses a mist/vapor form
it also works with the mist form of the downed status

Yah, the topic name could have been better. But the idea is just traits that are really strong and viable across all builds.

That's a really strong trait too, I always picked it up as an ele.

Ah I see now. So you're looking for traits that are just as powerful in one build as in another build?

Any class in specific you are looking for?

I'd have to agree with Zhuu as well for the elementalist.

Not in particular I did a fair amount of testing of all the classes in sPvP and was wondering if perhaps I missed one or didn't test a trait correctly. It's also nice to spread the word on traits that are extremely versatile ie: Resolute Healer which seems to be not so well known.

Only thing that I don't like about shrug it off is that if you pop endure pain it triggers the 90sec icd for it unless you wait for that to pop 1st, I really don't want to wait till I am at 25% to pop it, so until they fix that I am skipping it, but once it's fixed then hell yeah

Yeah, I noticed that during the beta weekend and was kind of irritated by it but after a while I got used to it, it was a really unnecessary thing to have to worry about though.

Speed increases and Stability traits. Especially if Cap Points remains the primary game type.

Necro boosts to Death Shroud (Speed and Stability + Armor Pierce + Slower Degen rate + Faster Life Force gain) are good regardless of what type of build you're playing. Slightly less good in Power based builds, but still really helpful.

Mesmer's are a bit more conditional based on their builds. As it stands now, the best traits (to answer the "Across the Board" question) are the self-shatter and the Phantasm damage buffs.
