Blood Reaper PvP Build

GW2. Blood Reaper PvP Build. Necromancer.

Last Update: December 2023

The Blood Reaper is a DPS that has massive burst and kill securing potential when chilling its targets, but because it is a melee necromancer it relies heavily on positioning and knowing when to go in to survive. Use the staff to poke and gain shroud when it isn’t safe to go in, and then enter shroud with the quickness and damage modifiers when the time is right to get kills. It has great sustain and condition cleansing capabilities, but does not deal with burst or lock down well.

Try to use Spectral Armor before going into Shroud before a large team fight engagement or a situation that may decide the fight. This will pump your life force generation even while you are in shroud, to allow you to stay in longer to get the most damage out.

Basic Rotation: Staff 2/3/4/5 > Dagger 3 > 2 > Warhorn 4 > Enter Shroud > 4 > 3 (Fear) > 5 > 111 > 2 > 111

  1. Not sure what I’m doing wrong but not finding this build to be very good. Staff seems lackluster, hard to land dagger hits. As soon as I go shroud I get jumped and slowed, can’t really do anything.

    • Because staff is your utility weapon to control the node, cleanse conditions away from you, get some regen and apply conditions to the opponent while giving you a lot of life force generation by taking soul marks.
