Akai’s GW2 Guide Compilation

#4) Other Resources

#1) Class and Build Guides (PvE/Dungeon/Fractals)

These guides go into the gear and traits that you could use to optimise the DPS for your class, mainly in Dungeons and Fractals. Some of them also include DPS rotations to help get the most out of your setup.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

These guides are meant to shed some insight into the trait and gear synergy, as well as the “inner workings” of each class.

Guides are merely educational tools, hoping to help people understand their classes better and improve the way they play (whichever way they choose to do so). Many people use these as a form of inspiration into helping themselves create their own unique build that suits their play style.

There are many ways to play GW2 and these guides only highlight a fraction of them. They are NOT meant to force people into playing specific builds or wearing specific gear. Please feel free to play the way you are comfortable with.

TL;DR – Use these guides as a suggestion. No need to let them dictate the way you play. Feel free to experiment with different builds that suit your play style.

Aron leads LEET to a successful guild event run!

This week one of the officers of LEET (Aron) took the place of Vooch and lead the guild to a successfully completely week of events.

LEET was successful in completing all missions with ease as Aron guided everyone through them, despite our struggle in the guild challenge, we ended victoriously and ended the night with a feeling of victory. “The guild did great and Aron acted as if he does this in his sleep, the night went off great” said Zyrax.

Great job and thank you to all who participated and a thank you to Aron for leading us!
