I came back to GW2 a little while ago. I have always loved the 1-80 part of the game, but now I have all 9 professions at level 80. I have 7/9 with both elite specs completed. I want to start getting into the FOTM/Raiding end game portion. The reason I am asking is that if I am going to put forth the time and effort I would like to get the most mileage out of it.

I think I should have enough various currencies to get most of the back/rings/accesories (275+ laurels, 1900 badges of honor, etc.)

My questions are:

  1. What profession/s would be recommended to gear up for those purposes?
  2. What is the most cost efficient way to aquire the gear needed?
  3. Is there another website for builds other then metabattle.com?

Thank you for your time and knowledge in advance.

  1. Chronomancer can be used as boon giver or as tank, Druid/Tempest as a healer and DPS classes can be Holosmith, Mirage, Warrior, Weaver etc. Depending on build it is either condi or power dps. You can play fractals with raidbuilds easily. I would say start with one DPS class, learn it and gear it for fractals and if you use meta build, it will work on raids as well.
  2. Well it depends gear. Unfortunately a lot metabuilds uses gear which you cannot get easily unless if it is full berserker. Berserker gear you can get from WvW, dungeons etc. but for example many condi builds uses viper's stats and those you need to craft. There are multiple ways to get ascended gear. From WvW, PvP, Fractals and Raids. Of course you can also craft them if you have high enough crafting. I would say get trinkets (rings, accessories, backpiece and amulet) from LS3/LS4 maps with map currency. You can choose stats on those trinkets. Then fill those with AR and start doing fractals and eventually when your personal fractal level goes higher, you start getting ascended drops from daily boxes. Also when you do enough daily recommended fractals, you will get enough tokens and you can buy ascended gear from fractals. Of course to buy them you need also grandmaster marks which you can get through crafting.
  3. Not sure what you mean. Do you mean website or what? Most reliable place for metabuilds is www.snowcrows.com but there are also https://qtfy.eu/ and http://metabattle.com/wiki/MetaBattle_Wiki . However Snowcrows keeps their builds up to date so that is best bet. 

The most important thing in life will always be the people around you. Salud, mi familia.
