    There's also the DnT Condi Druid build, though I suspect its very similar to any others - there's basically only one way to build it.

    I'm going to have to use an url shortener to sort out this formatting, which is annoying.

    A note on gearing up your character for raids

    You want to aim for full ascended gear, but for more casual and newer players this isn't going to be practical to begin with. As Tav noted in the raid thread, for DPS gear, Ascended is 15% higher DPS than Exotic.
    Of this:
    2% is from Armor
    6% is from Weapons
    7% is from Trinkets

    First up read Malawi's No-Nonsense Guide to Gearing Up at Level 80, for a detailed overview of currencies and getting exotic equipment. This guide will assume you already have adequate exotics.

    For the most damage for your investment, get the trinkets first. These can come from various places depending on your build, much of the information below is gleaned from the wiki.
    Amulets
    Berserker Amulets use WvW Laurel merchant (20 Laurels & 250 Badges of Honor) or PvE Laurel Merchants (cost 30 Laurels).
    For Condi builds complete all the achievements in Seeds of Truth of Living World season 2 and this will give you Wynne's Locket for Sinister stats.
    Rings
    Purchased either through fractals of the mists (10 pristine fractal relics) WvW Laurel Merchant (25 Laurels & 250 Badges) or from a PvE Laurel Merchant (30 Laurels).
    For Sinister builds complete all the Tangled Paths achievements in Living World Season 2 and you will get Plague Signet, you should also then be able to buy Verata's Seared Ring from the Laurel Merchant for 30 Laurels (not available through fractals or WvW) or from Silverwastes (10 gold & 1000 Bandit Crests)
    Accessories
    The cheapest way to buy these are with Guild Commendations (earned by completing guild missions) you need 12 commendations and 5 gold for each accessory; you can earn up to 6 commendations a week.
    For sinister, complete all the achievements from Echoes of the Past in Living World Season 2, once you've done this you can then purchase Caithe's Remorse from a PvE Laurel Vendor (40 Laurels & 50 ectos) or from Silverwastes (10 gold & 1000 Bandit Crests)
    Assassins accessories can also be obtained if you have completed the Caudecaus' Manor Collector or the Ruined City of Arah Collector achievements.
    Back Items
    The provide hardly anything in terms of your stats so don't worry too much about it, but if you insist on making one, probably the cheapest one to get is currently Mawdrey, with select-able stats.

    Weapons

    Crafting is currently the only way you can reliably get ascended weapons at the moment, you need crafting level 500 and ascended recipe's.
    Use GW2 Efficiency to calculate the cost of crafting your weapons

    Recipes:
    You need to have recipes for both the exotic and ascended version of Inscriptions
    Exotic Berserker/Assassins - Weaponsmith/Huntsman/Artifacer Merchant for 896 Karma
    Ascended zerker/Assassins - Weaponsmith/Huntsman/Artifacer Merchant for 21,000 Karma
    Exotic Sinister - Bandit Crest Collector (Silverwastes) 400 Crest & 20 Silver
    Ascended Sinister - Bandit Crest Collector (Silverwastes) 600 Crest & 20 Silver
    Exotic Vipers - Aurillium Collector (Auric Basin) 250 Aurillium & 32 Silver
    Ascended Vipers - ???

    Weapon recipe:
    Ascended zerk/Assassins - same merchant as above for 5 Laurels & 3 Gold
    Ascended sinister - Random drops, so will be easier to buy from the trading post
    Ascended Vipers - Random drops, so will be easier to buy from the trading post

    Vision Crystals - These have to be crafted or you can get one from the Dungeoneer Achievement or as a lucky drop from Mawdrey II, Princess or Star of Gratitude.

    Stat Changing:
    If you have been lucky enough to have an Ascended Weapon drop (or crafted something before) then you can change the stats by throwing it into the mystic forge with an Anthology of Heroes; 5 Glob of Ectoplasm; and 1 Orichalcum Imbued Inscription of the appropriate stats.
    As the Inscriptions can be bought off the trading post (except Vipers) you won't need to have leveled crafting for it.

    Armour

    Crafting Armour requires Lesser Vision Crystals except for the Chest and Legs which require the full version.
    Lesser Vision Crystals can be obtained from the following achievements:
    Rare Regalia
    Exotic Atire

    Ascended Armour can be obtained from the following Achievements, however completing the achievement may be more expensive than crafting it.
    Bioluminensence
    Ambrite Weapon Collection
    Leystone Armour

    Crafting is much the same as weapons and you can change the stats on armour you already own using that same method.

    I was going to concentrate on ascended gear, but I see you left a spot for it.

    Some reaper builds by [NA].

    Note these assume warrior banners, which is currently not viable with our skill levels - at least a vale, we can't keep him close enough to the middle in phase 2 & 3 - so you might want to look into getting ~30% crit chance.

    Edit: My personal takes (assuming no banner of discipline)

    DPS Reaper

    Tank Reaper

    Both are 100% crit chance under fury and 25 vuln.

    P.S.

    My personal DPS Herald (Assassin) and DPS Herald (Marauder) builds.

    Also 100% crit chance under fury.

    Both assume no precision from food, so you're still at 100% crit chance when running boon duration consumables.

    DPS difference is 4% (comparison) in favour of the assassin version, which also has much cheaper consumables.

    Thanks Tav, that looks interesting. They go for Bristleback I see! This would also require the tank to have 1500+ toughness, which has mostly but not universally been the case in our groups. What do you think about the Frost Spirit choice over Glyph of the Tides? I tried out Glyph of Unity last night and I don't think it's useful enough, so I think they're right not to include it.

    Its interesting that according to them the boon-sharing issue with spirits happens when you put the druid in its own subgroup.

    If we group it with the condi guys, frost and sun are very, very strong - sun is already better than any other option on a DPS berserker ranger at 25 might.

    Empowerment is the superior option if you dont need the CC and seeker control tides gives you.

    Unity is mainly good if you're running a combo tank-healer, which works on gorseval and tabetha - or so people say - but not on the guardian.

    Re: Bristleback - its a strong pet. It has issues with elevation changes just like the open world mob, but that's not a concern in this wing of the raid. You can always swap it for a cat if the tank has <1.5k toughness - my reaper runs 2k.

    As I said in the other thread, a good thing to include here would be the best CC and breakbar-killing options for each class.

    Mesmer Shatter 3 is pretty strong if you have 3 clones out. I then follow up with the GS5 or the Shield 5. I guess Mantra of Distraction would work well but has very little use in the rest of the fight, We have a stun signet, focus 4, pistol 5...but Shatter 3 and whatever offhand you have would be plenty as that's over 50% of the bar and you have friends.

    For the pet toughness, the bosses seem to completely ignore pets no matter what, as i've been using the bristleback without problems, even with tanks having less toughness.

    So I just unlocked Druid (thanks Tav, had done all the solo HPs) and gearing seems a little more complex than the usual dps choice. As well as those there are healer builds with apothecary (guang) or magi (dnt) as well as zealots being recommended
    so which to go for? thought I'd ask the advice of those with more raid experience than my one run yesterday, is it better to go more supportive or more damaging?

    Exactly what I've almost built (amulet pending a few achis). Can't wait to run it in raids, as I've been waiting for a long time to use the hammer again!
