Celestial Harbinger Roaming Build

GW2. WvW Build. Celestial Harbinger Roaming Build. Harbinger. Necromancer World vs World 2022.


Last Update: October 2022



Soul Reaping Variant


Overview

The Celestial Harbinger build has great sustain from celestial stats due to the Alchemic Vigor trait and regeneration scaling well with healing power, and as a Harbinger you can gain many boons and dish out many conditions to take advantage of the concentration and expertise.

Despite the high sustain, this build is susceptible to burst damage or CC, so positioning is extremely important. Speed Runes, Spectral Walk, Flesh Wurm, and the mobility skills in shroud should be used to keep distance from enemies while pummeling them with the high damage Dhuumfire auto attacks in shroud.

Death Magic Variant


Overview

Because Harbingers can be more susceptible to burst damage, replacing Soul Reaping with Death Magic can allow permanent uptime of Protection which makes up for the biggest weakness of necromancers: burst power damage and CC.

    • Dhuumfire is not bugged, it was intended to have this duration as said by CMC here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TsRZKpWgE_A&t=799s and yes the tooltip is wrong, but it would be even more overpowered if it were right. Dhuumfire is still the best option to add damage on autoattack plus Soul Reaping is more than one trait, it’s better overall.

  1. The auto’s from this slap harder than I realized. I feel like a machinegun that just won’t stop.
