Blood Reaper Roaming Build

GW2. WvW Build. Blood Reaper Roaming Build. Reaper. Necromancer World vs World 2022.


Last Update: October 2022


Overview

The Blood Reaper is a heavy damage necromancer roaming build due to the ferocity gains and quickness while in reaper shroud. Because the reaper shroud requires melee range, your survival depends on your ability to kite. Permanent swiftness with Speed Runes makes disengaging and keeping up with your targets much more feasible.

Synergy

The pulls and chills from Spectral Grasp and Grasping Darkness as well as the long duration Stuns from Chilled to the Bone and Executioner’s Scythe (Shroud 5) make it hard for enemies to escape from the heavy damage you can put out from the reaper shroud 1 and 4 skills.

Playstyle

Pressure with Axe until you are ready to go in, then cast Spinal Shivers, swap to Greatsword, throw out Grasping Darkness and Nightfall before going into shroud and using Soul Spiral. When they dodge use Death’s Charge and use the Fear from Infusing Terror to land the stun from Executioner’s Scythe. Auto attacking targets in shroud does plenty of damage with quickness when you can lock them down.

Always use Death’s Charge one final time before leaving shroud to reposition more safely then continue to pressure with Axe. Use your healing skill “Your Soul is Mine” off cooldown to always build life force out of combat, and hitting extra targets with it will give more value.

  1. I wanted a toughness equal to the condition core build, would it work, marauder armor and knight trinkets and weapons? or doesn’t all this toughness make sense?
