I've been playing with this build for about 4 months now (give or take) and it has served me well both as a commander in WvW and as a player contributing to a zerg. The best advice I can give onto you is simply use nourishments, support with staff (or mace/shield, or even scepter, focus/shield) and boon-up your allies. The number #2 skill "Whirling Wrath" is your deflect and crit favorite-most used attack, so time it well to land combo-finishers out in the field! 

As always only use "Stand Your Ground" before clashing with a zerg or before charging to a downed enemy to negate downed resurrected pulls, knockbacks or fears from occuring.

That's all pretty much, the rest is up to you. You decide how to manage your set and weapons of choice and how to approach the enemy from there. Overall, both in PvE world completion, dungeons and WvW/PvP; this will 110% of the time let you live.
