Summary

This is the build i run for WvW, it's based around the theory of "Perma-chill"ing your opponent while also focusing on condition damage. The idea here is that while you keep them chilled, you can burn their health down by applying conditions.

 

I'm new to creating guides, so if i'm missing something, please feel free to leave a comment and inform me of a better alternative.

Weapon and Skill Details

CC abilities: Scepter 2 (cripple: 5 sec) - Utility 2 (pull: allows displacement of enemies) - Utility 3 (cripple: 10 sec) - Utility 4 (fear: 1 sec; allows for further displacement if use strategically with Utility 2) - Elite 3 (cripple: 1 sec) - Staff 4 (fear: 1 sec) - Death Shroud 3 (fear: 1 sec on target, 1.5 on all enemies withing 600 meters) - Death Shroud 5 (immobolization if bind is allowed to expire)

 

Debuff -
Vulnerability: Utility 3 (10 sec) - With Bitter Chill, each chill also afflicts with 3 stacks vulnerability for 8 seconds.

 

Weakness: Utility 3 (weakness: 10 sec) - Elite 3 (weakness: 3 sec) - Dagger 5 (weakness: 10 sec)

 

Chill: Death Shroud 2 (chill: 5 sec) - Utility 2 (Chill: 4 sec) - Due to Chilling Darkness this build gains chill for two seconds on all blinding abilities. (Scepter 4, Utility 3, Elite 2) ** Chill afflicts Vulnerability for 8 seconds

 


TL;DR - Blind causes Chill which causes vulnerability. (3 conditions with 1 attack)
Siphon Life with almost all attacks (4 stacks of bleeding casts Lesser Signet of Vampirism)
Enemies below thresholds grant buffs ( 50% = casts spinal shivers, gain 20% damage increase, gain 2 stacks of might. 33% = grants all the above, plus inflicts vulnerability for 5 seconds.)
