Some guides for roaming builds which should be suitable for Fog's militia WvW events:

Holosmith

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqpUic3k1Yo   

Note the recommendations for consumables (Fried Oyster Sandwich and Potion of Karka Toughness), armor, runes, and trinkets.    The author recently posted that Durability runes are still the best in slot even after the changes to runes.

For anyone playing condition based classes, consider this food:  https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Oysters_with_Spicy_Sauce

 

MIrage

A bit outdated due to some recent changes to traits, but still a good guide for learning the basics.  Scholar runes are currently selling for 8 gold each on the TP.   A cheaper alternative is https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Superior_Rune_of_Infiltration.

 

SoulBeast

This double axe build is now meta in PvP (used by Eurantien and Rom)  so it will be interesting to see if it catches on in WvW roaming.  Sawda, you may want to considering testing this build out.    The Siamoth is used for the Plasma bundle that drops from the Siamoth's Foraging skill.   Plasma gives all boons when picked up.

Abbi,

Thanks for the build.  I notice it uses the Durability runes recommended in the Holosmith guide I posted above.  Yes, I favor using the smokescale pet for DPS.  My primary combo when in soulbeast form is F2 (Smoke Assault), F1 (Take Down), F3 (Worldly Impact) and Greatsword Maul equals awesome damage.

Peace Corps mission in Africa.
