I discuss my GW2 "Captain Hammer" Warrior build with PVP gameplay footage.
It provides good AOE healing and AOE buffs via shouts, excellent CC capability, high direct damage mitigation with 1810 toughness, damage that steadily increases over time (via stacking of might boons), and high uptime on Weakness debuffs. Therefore, this spec excels at supporting friendlies and "tanking" enemies.
In this educational video, I discuss:
1. usage of abilities to disable (crowd control) opponents
2. order and timing of attack abilities
3. providing support to friendly players via heals and buffs (boons)
Let me know your questions and feedback.
For detailed information on the spec's mechanics / traits / gear, please see the following links:
P.S. playing a Hammer and Mace/Mace Warrior takes some getting used to. The Hammer 3-4 and Mace 5 abilities self-root during the animation. The most significant part of turning the corner with this build is getting the timing down. As you can see in the video, I was able to get the hang of it in a few hours, but there is still a lot of room for improvement.
