DPS Dragonhunter WvW Zerg Build

GW2. WvW Build. DPS Dragonhunter WvW Zerg Build. DPS Dragonhunter. Guardian World vs World.


Last Update: May 2024


The DPS Dragonhunter is a guardian WvW build with heavy burst damage from weapons as well as access to leaps for engaging or disengaging from the enemy. This mobility allows you a much more reactive playstyle that is versatile in WvW fights where movement is necessary.

Dragonhunters also have great utility for their team compared to other DPS classes because of the F3 Shield of Courage which can give stability to allies and block attacks for them. This allows your group to run less stability-providing healers since the Dragonhunter can make up for it. The F1 Spear of Justice can be used to pull enemies which sacrifices their positioning and makes them an easy kill.

Swap between Hammer and Greatsword to do big damage combos, using the heaviest hitting 2 skills back to back. Remember that Hammer 4 resets the cooldown of your Hammer 2, so a 2 > 4 > 2 combo will enable more burst.


Burst Combos

  • F1 > Greatsword 3 > 4 > F3 > 2 > Swap > Hammer 2 > 4 > 2 > 5
  • F2 > Hammer 5 > Procession of Blades + Test of Faith > Hammer 2 > 4 > 2 > Swap > GS 4 > 2 > 3

Always use “Stand Your Ground!” or the F3 when engaging in melee range to get stability.
