Willbender Open World Build

GW2. Best Open World Build. Willbender. Guardian PvE 2022.

Last Update: April 18


Overview

This Willbender build fits many multi-hitting attacks into the Rushing Justice buff which gives burning the more you hit. Even as a hybrid build, it does great burst damage through burning and power damage.

Burst Combo: “Feel My Wrath” > Purging Flames > Sword 2 > F1 > Torch 4 x2 > Whirling Light > Sword 3 > Torch 5

Save your pulsing damage from Purging Flames and Sword 2 for when the F1 buff is up, but use Torch 4 as soon as possible.

  1. Nice build, what alternative runes do you recommend and can this armor set be used with a different Elite Specializations? Thanks! Also do you have a specific video explaining this build in youtube?

    • The runes are important for the sustain, but yea will work fine with firebrand and dh as well

  2. Dolyak Runes are great sustain as well, and they’re cheap on the TP; however I run similar build to this with Scholar runes and still feel like I have an abundance of built in sustain.

  3. Hello there!

    Such an amazing build! The problem I found is that it’s too tanky even for solo purposes. I use balthazar runes for even better burning damage and I run GS + sword/torch or scepter/torch for solo boss fights to break the defiance bar a bit faster.

    In WB’s trait line I took searing pact, since the heal is a bit too excessive for me. Pretty much can fight any HoT HP or champ solo. For me this is the best solo build atm after Renegade was nerfed to death.

  4. Amazing build, this is THE build for me! However, I have one small question. Would Roiling Light be a valid alternative for Stand Your Ground in regard to stun break?

    Thank you for your time.
