Best Warrior Build for Longevity/Sustainability/Damage
I'm just new to GW2 and i'm attempting to find the best Warrior build for lasting in a confrontation in mainly PvE...looking for sustainability and durability...I would like from the 'seasoned vets' a definitive suggestion for which is the best armour to use, the best weapon(s), the best runes or sigils to enhance both the armour and weapons and also the best use of the traits categories to achieve this as if you die quickly u can not help others or achieve much and thus the reason for this request.
I thank you in advance and any help proferred would be appreciated.
I can tell you all sorts of builds things I've done on my warrior, weapson sets and gear I've used, but in the end that is how I have fun based on my play style and it probably isn't for you, nor will most other people's suggestions.
If you are looking for "survivablity" and still do decent damage then you are going to need to stat mostly in Power/toughness/vitality. How much in each will affect how much direct damage you do, how much direct damage you take and how much HP you have. You can go a full speced in this (gear, traits and weapons with those stats) or a hybrid if you'd rather get more crit or more condition damage.
As for actual weapon choice, well again that is a play style issue. Lots of people like dual axe or greatsword and rifle, I personally prefer sword/axe and longbow, but again that's me based on my play style. You may like it you may not. Try it and find out.
The only wrong way to play the game is the way you end up not having fun.
