Condition DPS Druid Build

GW2. Raid Build. Condition Druid. DPS Alacrity Ranger PvE.


Last Update: April 2024


The Condition Druid is a versatile ranger build for group content with the ability to deal great damage over time through bleeding while also supporting allies with the Celestial Avatar. You have the option to go for full damage or for a hybrid Support/DPS that that can provide Alacrity while also dishing out some decent damage.

Playstyle

Role: DPS

Disabling or Immobilizing an enemy applies bleeding, making pulsing immobilizes like Entangle very powerful. Use the high damaging utility skills and the low cooldown weapon skills before entering Celestial Avatar. Entering Celestial Avatar will trigger your swap sigils as well as grant you the condition damage buff from the Natural Balance trait, so you should try to enter it about as soon as its available. Then swap your weapon to trigger your next set of weapon swap sigils and fill in the gaps with your remaining weapon skills until you can enter Celestial Avatar again.

Skill Priority:

  • Entangle
  • Utility Skills (Sharpening Stone/Spike Trap/Glyph of Alignment)
  • Axe 2/3 or Dagger 2/Torch 5
  • Celestial Avatar > 5 > 2 > 3
  • Weapon Swap
  • Dagger 4/5 or Dagger 3/Torch 4

CC: Spike Trap, Iboga F2, CA 3/5, Entangle
