    [ParadoX] New Series starting Today: Build Factory

    From now on we will not just bring you news surrounding Guild Wars 2, but even more insights on the game itself. Each week build factory will feature one top-notch spec ! Create a true archetype of your profession... surprise with an unconventional approach... find hidden synergies... we got all for you !

    Update 26/05/12
    Build Factory will go into semi-hiatus until release. Builds are still changing a lot, and we lack the true high-end / competitive content that separates the wheat from chaff. Still we have shown you how Guild Wars 2 brakes out of the ordinary in both combat style and profession design, and demonstrated the variety of ways professions can play out and contribute. At the same time we offered you a whole lot of high quality builds to pick up and jump into straight the action, without having to spend precious time on basic build crafting.
    But stay tuned for what's still to come...

    List of builds:

    Ranger, Active Defence
    A super slippery build, employing active defences to stay ever ahead of his enemies, while mercilessly sapping their strength and life.

    Thief, Killing Them Softly
    A strong condition build able to join any group and adapt to any situation, yet with enough defences to not topple over at the first sight of opposition.

    Elementalist, Wind Rider
    A build not seeking simple personal but strategic advantage, getting around the battlefield quickly with the ability to swing key battles in his favour.

    Warrior, For Great Justice !
    Learn how to be more than a dumb grunt and discover the flexible combat styles and great group role warriors can play in GW2.

    Engineer, Blazing Assault
    Straight forward play, strong capabilities in base assault and defence, team support and a surprising amount of sturdiness make this build a top choice for PVP.

    Necromancer, Death Revealed
    Max your Death Shroud to become great in any solo situation, play an unconventional necromancer without minions and have a highly customisable build framework at your fingertips.

    Guardian, Dazzling Fires
    A true child of Guild Wars 2, it features actual control instead of trying to tank by getting beaten up, while also bringing a wallop of damage and good group support !

    Mesmer, the Shatter
    A PVP build based on spike damage, capitalising on the mesmer's unique illusions while staying just out of the grasp of furious enemies.

    It's been a busy week here, and on top of that we wanted to wait until the GW2 wiki got the latest beta update. So while a bit late in the week, here comes no less than...

    Just ready for those of you lucky enough to get their fix of GW2 during the upcoming stress test, our latest build offers an easy to learn entry for one of GW2's more unique classes...

    Fresh from the beta, we yet tackle another class in our weekly series.

    Elementalist, Wind Rider
    A build not seeking simple personal but strategic advantage, getting around the battlefield quickly with the ability to swing key battles in his favour.

    Right in time for the stress test, we give you the chance to answer a highly controversial topic for yourself... Is the thief just a one dimensional gank profession, or does he have a worthy spot in a group ? See yourself with...

    Thief, Killing Them Softly
    A strong condition build able to join any group and adapt to any situation, yet with enough defences to not topple over at the first sight of opposition.

    necro's benefit from minions since it gives the necro a nice way to keep enemies on a distance, leaving them out is just simply a stupid thing to do.......
    it's alive but cannot be living, it's dead but lives a mortal life.

    Or is it? There were good minion-less builds in GW1 and it could be the balance in GW2 allows for that too.

    The article also give a minion-master variant if that is your preference.

    Today Basti presents you the last profession missing from our introduction cycle of Build Factory...

    Ranger, Active Defence
    A super slippery build, employing active defences to stay ever ahead of his enemies, while mercilessly sapping their strength and life.

    With that Build Factory will go into semi-hiatus until release. Builds are still changing a lot, and we lack the true high-end / competitive content that separates the wheat from chaff. Still we have shown you how Guild Wars 2 brakes out of the ordinary in both combat style and profession design, and demonstrated the variety of ways professions can play out and contribute. At the same time we offered you a whole lot of high quality builds to pick up and jump into straight the action, without having to spend precious time on basic build crafting.
    But stay tuned for what's still to come...

    PS @ sorudo: Minion masters are far from the only way to play necro in PVP. In fact in the BWE #1 build conditioners and DS builds (like the mix we presented) were far more powerful. They would at most add one minion with specific purpose to their skill setup.
