So I have a 30/30/5/5/0 build warrior and I am wanting to craft my exotic armour for dungeon running. I want alot of survivability as I heard you can die pretty quick. I want dungeon running as my main source of content with maybe a lil WvWvW. I was thinking of have a combo of knight and valkyrie armour peices for the vitality and toughness while still getting power and precision in there as well. I use a GS and rifle weapon set. Is this a good choice??? Thank you

Based on your trait spec, it sounds like you’re a glass cannon Greatsword build. Those are normally built around +Power, +Precision, and +Crit Damage to spike damage mobs to death. However this won’t serve you well in WvW (except for certain situations) or dungeons. You’ll need to be able to take a hit. While thankfully we Warriors have a lot of Health points, our defense is sorely lacking.

1) Make sure that you’re packing at least x1 form of Condition removal for things like damage dots (aka Poison, Burn, Bleed). This will normally be our Mending heal or Signet of Stamina.

2) You’ll need some kind of defensive stats. While you can take both +Vitality and +Toughness, Warriors are normally high on the Health and weak on the damage mitigation side. As a result, my personal preference would be to stack up on +Toughness. Though condition damage dots ignore your Toughness score, you’ll have the Health and condition removal to deal with it. My main concern for a melee character would be the ability to survive the many hits that you’ll be dealing with. High amounts of Toughness will reduce each incoming attack by a % value and will make it easier to keep you healed up to full.

3) In general, blend gear however you can. You can mix and match jewelry pieces to get your desired +Stat spread. Just make sure that you’re using a full set of x6 Superior Runes on your armor (which you could add to any armor pieces as needed).

4) On a side note, your trait spec confuses me. I’d personally suggest something more like 30/30/0/0/10. This would let you take Signet Mastery out of the Disciple line (since most Warriors use 1-2 Signets) and it would also increase your Crit Damage by +10%. The T1 Minor abilities in the Defense and Tactics lines just really aren’t that impressive when you’ve got better choices.
