GW2. Raid Build. Alacrity Willbender. Guardian PvE 2022.
Last Update: Mar 16
The Alacrity Willbender is a DPS guardian build with mobility, burst, and the potential to support through aegis while also giving alacrity to the group.
Land all of your high damaging/multi-hitting abilities inside the duration of your Flowing Resolve, which gives alacrity and due to the Battle Presence trait will be shared to allies. Use the longer pulsing damage first like Symbols and Sword of Justice, and prefer to use auto attacks in sword than in greatsword because the final hit strikes three times, giving out more alacrity
Example Burst: F1 > Greatsword 4 > F2 > Sword of Justice > Greatsword 2 > 5 > 3 > Swap > Sword 2 > Focus 4 > Sword 3 > Wait for Sword 2 by spamming autos > Sword 2 > F2 > Sword of Justice > Swap > Greatsword 4 > 2 > 5 > 3
