Condition Quickness DPS Firebrand Build

GW2. Raid Build. Condition Quickness Firebrand. Guardian PvE.


Last Update: March 2024


Overview

The Condition Quickness Firebrand is a DPS guardian build with the ability to give quickness, protection, might, and decent support to its team. It excels at cleaving multiple enemies nearby, and has great utility options as a guardian while doing great sustained damage.

Playstyle

Role: DPS

Use both the Mantra of Solace and Mantra of Potence when on top of your group to upkeep quickness on them. Prioritize using both the Torch 4 charges when possible, and then use your Tome of Justice every 20 seconds or every other time you use the Torch 4. Only use the 5 > 4 > 2 in Justice Tome to get the extra page from using 3 pages in a row, but conserve your pages afterwards. Place symbols and Purging Flames on your team and the boss to share boons and cleansing. Swap to Pistols when both Torch 4 charges are on cooldown.

The Pistols weapon set has more skills to use so there is less time to use your F1 Tome during that weapon swap. Prioritize using the Tome while in your Axe/Torch set.

Skill Priority:

  1. Mantra of Solace/Potence/”Feel My Wrath!” to upkeep Quickness
  2. Purging Flames
  3. Torch 4 > Axe 2 > Torch 4
  4. Tome F1 > 5 > 4 > 2
  5. Swap
  6. Pistol 2 > 3 > 4 > 5 > 4 > 2

You need to recast the Pistol 5 after it’s fully charged to detonate it for full charge, but you can also save Axe 3 and Pistol 5 for CC.

  1. How much Viper’s should we replace with Ritualist’s with access to EoD?
