    I decided to go for a Axe/Axe Axe/Warhorn build in WvW because axes are cool. I might switch out one of the two for GS or sometimes LB, but I love offhand training too much to take a 2-handed weapon.

    since they added a pull to the offhand axe it has become a great offhand option, but I currently prefer sword for the main hand for the extra damage and the evades (I am pretty squishy), not being able to interupt the chain on skill 1 is irritating though.

    As per Malawi's Useful-Class-Quirks-and-Glitches thread, you actually can interrupt the sword chain:

    but I shouldn't need to. and sometimes there isn't time to hit another skill and then dodge.

    A week ago or so I came up with this build that could be quite fun, but I haven't really tested it yet. The runes are quite cheap, and I wanted to try a human elite skill because always using Rampage as One gets old after a while. I intended it for WvW group fights, I actually have no idea how well this would do when roaming, might work if you switch the pets for snow wolf/snow owl.
    I would guess that it relies too much on the elite, but as I said it hasn't been tested yet due to lack of a reliable and fast internet connection

    Poison Master is pretty good though, at least in PvP and WvW. And yes, condis are ok in WvW, despite a multitude of cleanses, especially since poison can be reapplied almost instantly, all of the time.

    Also, Read the Wind is perfect for sniping players running in zergs. Think of zerker eles.

    a Norn with a shortbow just looks ridiculous though. Still I play a condi ranger in PvP so maybe i'll start doing that in WvW too.

    Read the Wind will be very useful in WvW but is pretty useless in PvE since it doesn't decrease your cooldown and PvE mobs are too stupid to dodge arrows anyway. I think they really need to move piercing arrows to Adept.
