Condition DPS Specter Build

GW2. Raid Build. Condition DPS Specter. Thief PvE 2022.

Last Update: June 5


Overview

The Condition Specter is a DPS thief build with great single target ranged damage and CC. It can choose to support its allies which is great for changing to a more defensive playstyle during higher pressure situations, then swap back to doing damage. It can focus on doing reliable damage, or it can also have a higher supportive build with Alacrity sharing capabilities.


DPS Variant


Playstyle

Role: DPS

Always prevent your initiative from maxing out. Initiative gained while at maximum initiative is lost and therefore a DPS loss. Use Scepter 3 to expend initiative. Using Siphon and entering Shadow Shroud will give initiative. You want to use Siphon and Shroud as soon as possible to get more initiative over time, but without maxing initiative. Therefore, you shouldn’t wait until you have no initiative to use Shroud or Siphon, but wait until using them will not result in maxing your initiative. So a priority will look like this:

  1. Use venoms (or Wells) off cooldown when you can share them with multiple players nearby
  2. Siphon if you can use scepter 3 before your initiative maxes
  3. Enter Shroud and use 2 > 4 then leave if you can without maxing initiative before the next scepter 3
  4. Scepter 3 to deplete initiative

Alacrity Variant


The alacrity version has the same playstyle as the DPS variant, but it has more health and boon duration, allowing it to provide more boons and barrier. Prioritize using your Wells before using steal or going into shroud, but always prevent your initiative from maxing. If you want to make your wells cast at your feet so you don’t need to move your mouse as precisely, put your cursor over any UI element (like the minimap) and it will cast ground targeted skills at your feet.
