My big thing in Guild Wars is high end PvE and over time i will post my team builds(h/h mostly) for each area complete with links to video guides. The page is still very much a work in progress and i hope to have all dungeons & elite areas h/h up in a few weeks with all my hero builds up very soon.

Due to my videos getting flagged my channel was taken off Youtube. However with the latest update some of the methods shows would no longer be the most efficiant. I hope to get up some new builds and videos asap. --Frizz Meister 14:40, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

Team Setup[edit]

2 Frontline High damage(50+ dps), high armour, low health, party wide buffs

1 Support Moderate health, moderate damage(30ish dps), focused on helping frontline

1 Anti-Caster Moderate health/armour, moderate damage(30ish dps), focused on interupts/shutdown, should carry a hard res

1 Anti-Physical Moderate health/armour, moderate damage (30ish dps), focused on debuffing physical attackers, should carry a hard res

1 Secondary Healer High health/armour, low damage (<20 dps), focused on raw heals and minor party buffs, should carry a hard res

1 Primary Healer High health/armour, no/negligable damage, focused on party wide heals and protection, should not carry a res

1 Flexible An open slot which has a situation dependent member, eg AoE nuker for nm, should carry a res


My method for PvE is to send in the frontline first with either flags or calling so that they abosorb the main brunt of the damage. Then the primary healer can prot them as needed to make them require little healing. The support member then buffs the frontline to create a consistant stream of high damage from them. The two shutdown party members focus on reducing the potency of both spells and physical attacks from the enemies, whilst doing significant damage. For example a mesmer with 10 fast casting can use ineptitude every 10 seconds for high damage and disabling physicals with blind. The secondary healers' role is to provide the necessary healing to maintain the frontline, whilst also providing some buffs. If/when AoE damage does not get shutdown the primary healer can use party wide healing to keep the red bars high.
