Alright you guys... I am the worst secret keeper ever. Here's the build I wanted to keep to myself... Read the whole post before discounting it:
As much as I'd like to play an arena or dueling class, because that's my favorite gameplay, this game'll be all about group PVP. This build will reach emperor status for sure, nothing else comes close to this build's versatility while still being strong in each focus besides single-target dps. (Tank, Heal, AOE DPS, and Survival... it's about as perfect at each of those as you can get.)
Templar – Heavy Armor – Bow/Resto – Orc
Bow- DPS and Kite
Solar Flare – M – Spammable AOE DPS
Sun Fire – M – Dmg + Slow/DOT
Scatter Shot – S – Dmg + KB + Disorient
Snipe – S – Nuke
Rapid Maneuver – S – AOE Speed Boost
*Berserker Rage – U – Dmg boost and tank
Resto Staff- Tank and Heal
Sun Shield – M – Self Absorption Shield + AOE Dmg
Immovable – S – Tank and Anti-CC
Rune Focus – M – Tank and Anti-Interrupt
Blessing of Protection – M – AOE Res/Armor Buff + Heal
Regeneration – M – Heal + HOT
*Barrier – U – AOE Absorption Shield
Solar Flare spamming is all you need for groups, Sun Fire/Scatter Shot combo is amazing kiting, Snipe is the most distant attack and it's strong-easy kills without being part of the fray for picking off single targets, you're also highly agile due to bow's speed+orc's sprint racial+using rapid maneuver to help your whole group move faster until combat is engaged.
So, with your first setup you are able to keep your distance in group fights really easily (since you're so far away, sniping or volleying) and then in solo fights no melee will be able to get close enough to you to do anything to you.
Once you're in the fray, since it's inevitable, not only will you have heavy armor so you can take more hits—but you have a lot of tanking abilities for yourself as well as helping abilities for the rest of your team mates making you really beneficial to have around on top of being really really good selfish play at the same time.
Also, this build is able to level everything up at once that you'll want passives in, without wasting skill points in other Active abilities just to get experience in the passives. So, being able to focus on getting the passives will speed up how fast this build is optimized and it'll be able to gain emperor status super fast.
Not only does it cover every tree you want passives in, but it levels up evenly throughout those trees (making all of leveling go quicker): spread out between templar trees, 2x each weapon tree, 1x each pvp tree, 1x mage guild, 1x heavy armor, 1x Racial---Racial Ult, but while leveling up you'll want to use Dawnbreaker from Fighter's Guild to get your fighter's guild passives unlocked.
I'm extremely happy with this build. It is pretty much the very best in every single aspect of the game except for actually killing casters in a dps battle, but since this is a group-battle fight, the casters will be targeting the melee users in front rather than targeting you anyway.. and if they are targeting you, then your melee users will squish them and you'll be fine in your resto-bar tanking their piss.
I also love the idea that while tanking/healing I won't be CC-able at all really, through either immovable (which also acts as a stam-sink while healing) or rune focus... Genius fish tacos.
