This Guild Wars 2 Guardian build explains a play style that uses utility skills and the greatsword to apply conditions for damage. In essence you will be applying vulnerability to decrease the enemies armor and then burning conditions to do damage. Stacking vulnerability allows us to put out more damage and our traits are tailored to promote this play style. We will also get a large increase to damage from fighting foes on fire and just by using a greatsword. Another important part of this Guardian build is our signets and consecration skills which give us more chances to apply vulnerability and burning.
As the title suggests we will be using a 2 handed Greatsword for our build which is optimal for doing damage. Some important skills that you are going to want to focus on using are the Symbol of Wrath and Leap of Faith. They will apply burning and blind your enemy which will prove useful once we get to the traits.
For your heal skill I would recommend picking up the Signet of Resolve which also comes with a passive effect of removing a condition every 10 seconds. All passive effects from signets we use will also get a boost from our traits which we explain later on.
