Berserker Open World Build

GW2. Best Open World Build. Power Berserker. Warrior PvE.


Last Update: December 2023


Overview

Hitting things very hard and fast with a big weapon is what defines the Berserker specialization, and this build allows you to do so with two of the warrior’s biggest weapons: the Hammer and Greatsword.

The build locks down enemies with tons of CC which then generates Quickness due to the Aggressive Onslaught trait. You can keep this up during the whole duration of your Berserker Mode for a very fast paced playstyle.

Prioritize using your Primal Bursts (F1) while in Berserk Mode. Fill in the gaps with Rage utilities and hard hitting weapon combos. Entering and Exiting (F2) Berserk Mode gives you survivability, so choosing to leave it can be a tradeoff off damage to help you live.

Skill Rotation:

Use Wild Blow and “For Great Justice!” whenever possible to maintain Fury for critical chance.

  1. This is probably way better, but i Love! to play with the Warrior longbow <3

  2. LOVE this build! Been gone for a while and always enjoy Berserker and now my favorite open world build. Been using in the new rift events and easily rip the demon apart while providing some defiance break love to those around me during my Berserk.

  3. I appreciate the thought & work that goes into these guides & video.

    Props to Jen and Vallun.
