The builds in this guide are grouped into three catagories:
600/Smite is the most popular dungeon running build to date. The build uses a 600hp tank, who stays alive through the use of Protective Spirit and Spirit Bond. The smiter does damage through a low-armor 600hp tank, using skills such as Holy Wrath and Retribution: There are many variants of 600/smite and often dungeon running builds have a third person to provide additional damage, healing and energy denial. The smite/supporters are listed here as hero builds but could also be played by humans.
An extremely popular build for running and farming, throughout Guild Wars. The build uses an Assassin with Shroud of Distress and Shadow Form, coupled with Consumables or Deadly Paradox to permanently maintain Shadow Form. This build can be used throughout many dungeons for solo farming or running. Running on a Perma is preferable because it maximizes the number of free slots in a team, increasing the number of people paying to be ran.
Speed clears have become very popular throughout a number of areas in Guild Wars. Many of the dungeons with sought after drops (see list) have speed clear builds since they allow areas to be completed many times in a short period of time. These builds are very specific and often focus on running past and skipping everything that does not require killing. Some of the most popular speed clear builds include: Manly Spike, which uses a combination of Hundred Blades and Whirlwind Attack to mass trigger Mark of Pain and Sinway, where every party member has Shadow Form.
