Warriors probably have the most damage from range, but not really any utility or support, Guardians at first seem to be the worst for it, but the guardians staff AA is amazing for hitting large groups and provides a lot of utility.

I'm pretty sure Warriors ahve the most damage...period o.o

The biggest influence race has is on the size of your model. The larger races charr and norn have a more difficult time with jumping puzzles than asura or even humans and sylvari.

And I suppose the smaller clickable target thing makes a difference if you're really into PvP.

So I am playing a rifle wielding human warrior. I like the game so far... It seems to run really well I can run everything at max at 1440p and still get 50+fps.

Warriors are fun! Depending on your preference, you can tank, do massive dps, or be a ranged fighter. My Warrior is mainly focused on damage with limited survivability. When I was running full berserker's gear (power, precision, crit dmg) (armor, jewels, accessories, etc) I was crit hitting at 20k+. I died whenever a feather hit me but I did a ton of damage! I have since changed my build to be Knight's (power, toughness, precision) armor with Zerker other items. I live a little longer now but do smaller crits (only like 15K tongue.gif )

My warrior build is similar with all knight's armor, but zerker's weapons and jewelry. My crits do anywhere from 12k-18k depending on buffs/debuffs/armor. I also like to run with axe/mace as my weapon switch because it has two sources of vulnerability for 4 stacks. If I stick with the axe/mace I can get 16-20 stacks of vuln on my own, but I frequently switch back to greatsword so hundred blades can take advantage of the vuln stacks. That and the arms trait line gives bonuses for weapon switching with a drastically shorter cool down.

I've also heard that double axe warrior has a higher consistent dps because it doesn't rely on hundred blades, but I like that burst damage. Oh, and I only run dungeons. I have no idea how this would do in pvp. Probably terribly.

There is no one best build for everything. It comes down to what you'll be doing (leveling, PvE, WvW, PvP) and your play style.

Greatsword is much more defensive than double axe and is preferable for straight up DPS builds because of that, it adds a little survivability without sacrificing the DPS.
