WvW Hammer Warrior
This is a build for running around in WvW, Not a roaming build but a build for when in a group may it be havoc or just a zerg.
This build provides Survivability, DPS, Crowd Control, and party wide Swiftness.
A little extra health never hurts.
Using the Hammer a warrior is able to dish out steady damage aswell as laydown some crowd control.
Distracting Strikes applies 4 stacks of confusion on foes that you interrupt.
You've got 3 interrupts.
Thats 12 stacks on up to 5 targets.
Incoming Movement Condi's have their duration reduced..
Yes please. You need to keep moving.
Hammer Damage is increased by 25%
Activate Endure Pain when struck below the health threshhold (25%)
This also breaks stun though you are still susceptible to Condi's, Control Effects.
Could save your life, has saved mine.
Immobilize a target when you cripple them with a skill.
Hammer Skill 3 hits up to 5 foes, thats 5 immob'd foes..
F1 (earthshaker) Dazes.
Great for a quick burst of damage
In a fight with a silly theif and he runs off escaping your grasp, surprise him with that immob followed by a nice earthshaker to the face.. He wont be going anywhere.
You will also be able to Immob with your secondary weapon set
"Shrug It Off!"
Use "Shake it off" Automatically when you have a number of condi's on you.
Also cures allies of condition
Let that health trickle in
I like to take Kick, Stomp or Bulls Charge
Breaks Stun, provides Stability.
Breaks Stun, Take no damage for 4 seconds(Still susceptible to Condi's, CC)
There may be a time that you need to quickly resurrect your party, or banner a lord so that you can keep a tower just long enough for backup to arrive. That's why I choose Warbanner.
All gear should be exotic if not ascended
Soldier's Hammer of Chilling
Soldiers Axe of Air/Soldiers Warhorn of Bloodlust
Use this weaponset for getting your stacks, for movement. Use the Axe skill three to immob a foe.
Soldiers Armor of The Dolyak is my personal favorite for WvW.
Trinkets can be what you like, though I choose to run Berserkers for the DPS.
Any questions, concerns, improvements feel free to reply.
Ill type a quick summery tomorrow.
