Q:I can’t really decide which one would be more valuable. I’m definitely going shouts, possibly even 3.
With the shortened duration (when fixed), I can be shouting an awful lot. Then again, I can be healing an awful lot considering I will also be going absolute resolve.
So to make my choice easier, I have a couple of questions…
1 – Does Pure of Voice work on yourself also? It just says allies.
2 – Does Absolute Resolve strip 3 conditions from allies as well as yourself?
A:1 – Yes
2 – Just Yourself.
If your going to pick up Battle Presence you pick up Absolute Resolve which means you need a 30/20 investment which is a lot and pushes you towards Support.
That’s fine for WvW/PvE but not for Spvp
In WvW and Spvp, Absolute Resolve is usually a must, as it’s a great condition removal without taking up a utility slot.
The best condition removals for guardians are:
Rune of Soldier x6 (Group)
Signet of Resolve
Pure of Voice is good, but against most Necro’s, they will Corrupt boon protection or you will be sitting on a well and get that condition > boon back into a condition.
So basically, it’s food for fodder. Nor is 30 into Valor a good idea unless your going for Battle Presence/Absolute Resolve.
Pure of Voice is not an optimal trait unless your trying to build a support condition removal build for WvW or PvE.
