Celestial Soulbeast Open World Build

GW2. Best Open World Builds. Celestial Soulbeast. Ranger PvE.


Last Update: January 2024


If you don’t like managing your pet as a ranger, this Celestial Soulbeast build removes the extra complication of your pet because you can permanently merge with it. There are still pet abilities but they can be managed from your character instead of a second unit. In return you gain great medium-range sustained damage and survivability.

Eternal Bond allows you to swap which pet you are merged to without ever unmerging. This allows you to actively swap between the utility of the Krytan Drakehound Merge and the DPS of the Bristleback merge depending on the situation.

Skill Rotation:

Use Flame Trap and Entangle off cooldown

Use the Merged Bristleback F2/F3 off cooldown, and swap the Merge to Hyena if you need to F3 to pull

Shortbow 2 > 4 > 5 > 111 > 2 > Swap

Axe 2 > 3 > Torch 5 > 4 > Axe 2 > Swap
