I understand it maybe somewhat early right now to be posting builds but it will help us all understand each other's build. As time progresses a build section will be created on the forums so people can critique each other's builds. I would recommend using this build creator: http://gw2.luna-atra.fr/skills_tool/

I want each person who plays to post their Class as well as any critical abilities that we would prove useful in sieges.

Examples:
AoE Disrupts
AoE CCs
AoE shields
AoE Buffs
Single Target Disrupts
Single Target CCs

When I say disrupts I mean skills that do damage and also disrupt a cast. When I say CCs I mean anything that causes a hindrance to game play that is done so using a skill. So be sure to think about any skills you will come across early on that will prove useful to you in sieges or in group fights.

Here is a template you can use:
Character Name
Character Level
Critical Skill #1 Description
Critical Skill #2 Description
Critical Skill #3 Description
etc

This thread will be used to help train players who are new or been with us for a while to learn combos and learn each others play styles in training. A useful feature in Guild Wars 2 will be using player combos to maximise damage.


(Small Z-edit - just altered the character builder link!)

some guardian ideas:
1.http://www.gw2tools.com/skills#g;appfa;aaaYbVVcYVaaaaa;deZa;ZQRiZ

AoE Disrupts
AoE CCs
AoE shields

Critical skills:
-leap of faith/blinding flash
-shield of absorb/sanctuary
-binding blade


Ability rundown:
-3 leaps
-2 push back with guardian in center.and 1 pull
-2 blinds, block heal, condition removal

main idea is:
-seperating enemy raids, so they can be picked off by teammates
-absorbing damage with moderate AoE abilities
-leap in then pull with binding blade for teammates to AoE.

I'll probably use something like THIS in WvWvW as Elementalist.

Critical skills:
- Frozen Ground (AoE chill).
- Healing rain (AoE heal + condition removal).
- Glyph of Elementals (dps + healing pet).
- Frost bow and associated abilities.

Ability rundown:
- Plenty of AoE healing
- Some decent AoE damage
- Some decent AoE CC

Main focus will of course be group healing and slowing enemies, with the potential for a switch to more DPS/CC oriented abilities for a limited time using Frost Bow.

Main disadvantage may well be the pet, since dependant upon the visibility of it, it could well be akin to a giant neon sign saying "GROUP HEALER HERE! KILL IT! KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!".

Also, if I'm not healing, I think I'll be trying something like THIS.

Lots, and lots, and LOTS of fire damage. Staff & Greatsword for AoE, Lava Axe for ST focus fire or times when I'm alone facing one opponent.

Character Name: Adranas
After playing EVE I have decided I like to kill people and thief seems closest to a pirate which I am in EVE. Although it will be either this or the Guardian class.

http://www.gw2tools.com/skills#t;ppafa;XVUYedaaacaaaaa;baYY;aaaaa

Critical Skills:
-Shadow Refuge, group heal and stealth to allow a small time for a quick getaway or a small healing amount.
-Blinding Powder, stealth for a group around me while blinding enemies around me.

Ability Rundown:
-Gank to the max.
-Some GTFO! abilities.

Idea of this build would be to get a target and just kill him as fast as possible and he shouldn't get away, but I have enough utility that would allow me and others to escape if you need to escape.

I am planning on being a Sylvari Ranger.

http://www.gw2tools.com/skills#r;ppaaf;cedbfgaaaaaaZaa;ZaYa;bUdgY

I will focus more on DPSing than actually CCing or Supporting, but despite that I have.

Critical Skills:

AoE Snare
Single Target Stuns
Single Target Slow
Immobilizing Traps
AoE Damage Buff

Ability Rundown:
Can get in an out of combat easily while DPSing with both shortbow and greatsword.
Some single target CC and good Snare abilities.

P.S.: Still need to know how the pets were reworked and their abilities (Makes it 2 extra sets of abilities)

I may have accidently posted this twice. I apologize if so:

This is my engineer build in sPvP. I only used this a few times in the last BWE and wasn't able to capture any footage, but it was very effective:

http://gw2.luna-atra.fr/skills_tool/?lang=en&code=3et000dqe4e3dshf00ukk009sa3a5ajark8k9

I augment the build with:

Sigils: Earth (bleed on crit) and accuracy (improved crit)
Amulet/Jewel: Rabid (condition damage, crit chance, toughness)
Rune: Undead (condition damage, toughness)

The ideal strategy for this build is a mix of high, non-stop condition damage, control effects, high toughness and reactive defensive cooldowns.

Start by applying a chill, then blind, poison and bleeds with grenades. Switch to the pistol and blind again - followed by more stacks of poison and bleeds. The key is keeping poison and bleed on the target. Burning will stay up due to the incendiary powder trait.

Use the static shield when blind falls off (for daze against ranged or stun against melee) and magnetic shield when they start to attack(for reflection against ranged or knockback against melee). If they get into melee range, use slick shoes to knock down and then blind, immobilize and continue stacking conditions with bombs and the pistol.

With no prowess, your crits are weak, but the main reason you want to crit is to proc incendiary powder (burning), earth sigil (more bleed stacks), sharpshooter (yet more bleed stacks) and infused precision (run speed in combat).

Don't expect any huge damage spikes, but this is a good mix of condition damage, control effects (tanking) and survivability. Bleeds, poison and burning are your primary damage sources.

Obviously, the only place I could test this was in sPvP, but I expect the build will be good in WvW at max level as well (probably switching slick shoes for a ranged ability like utility goggles for use from walls) and switching to the mortar instead of supply drop as the elite.

I'm also considering swapping to the elixer gun in place of the bomb kit for the added poisons and bleeds, but haven't been able to experiment with it yet.

Signet of Wrath and Hold the Line gets changed depending on how stuff goes. This is more of a offensive with some helpful support.

http://gw2.luna-atra.fr/skills_tool/?lang=en&code=3ac6g09a9k9o9hmk2400ukk73797a7eipj1

A build I've been meaning to try out. It's basically a tank with heals to guard capture points and KB enemies and keep em out for a bit.

http://gw2.luna-atra.fr/skills_tool/?lang=en&code=3a22009chpmf9g9f70uu00a6g6ri0i5i8iaj3

PvE spec. Merciful intervention can get changed out for bow of truth and change up some trait points for spirit weapons.
