GW2. WvW Build. Celestial Soulbeast Roaming Build. Ranger World vs World 2022.
Last Update: October 2022
The Celestial Soulbeast build features high mobility, high sustain and high boon uptime and decent damage. It’s a very durable build that can outplay most of the situations that can occur in WvW. With the return of pet swap this build only got better and while Eternal Bond is good for more versatility and options with the pets, it’s not necessary the best option, Leader of the Pack is still very good alternative and maybe the best to share the overpowered effect of Dolyak Stance.
With celestial stats and the extra stats that you get while you merge with your pet, Soulbeast becomes one of the most boosted specs in the game. The build synergy is based on hybrid damage, high boon duration to resustain and plenty of cleanse to deal with conditions. The extra cleanse becomes necessary due to using Predator’s Cunning trait for life steal and synergy with Vulture Stance..
The build can perform very well in many ways, but the optimal combo that you want to do is the following:
Vulture Stance – Hunter’s Call – Smoke Assault – Takedown or Winter’s Bite – pet swap – Prelude Lash – Maul – Hilt Bash – Maul – Swoop
You can do plenty combinations with unmerged Smokescale and Smoke Cloud for stealth, with Call of the Wild or Swoop. Merged Skills also heal you by using Eternal Bond so using them often is good.
Swoop on Greatsword and Raven gives insane mobility to disengage or chase, plus the superspeed on pet swap and Quickening Zephyr.
