DPS Reaper WvW Zerg Build

GW2. WvW Build. DPS Reaper WvW Zerg Build. DPS Reaper. Necromancer World vs World.


Last Update: May 2024


The DPS Reaper is an aggressive necromancer WvW Zerg build that can pull enemies with the Greatsword or to leap into their enemies with the protection from their Reaper Shroud. While in Shroud you have increased ferocity and quickness, which means you can cast your Well of Suffering and Well of Corruption and then enter Shroud to increase their pulsing damage.

There are two basic bursts you can perform on this build. Because wells are unblockable, you don’t want to stack them with “Nothing Can Save You!” because it would waste the unblockable charges. Ideally you want to use the Wells with Shroud and Axe for one burst, and “Nothing Can Save You!” with Greatsword for another.


Well Burst: Focus 5 > Axe 2 > Well of Corruption/Suffering > Enter Shroud > 2 > 3 > 4 > 5 > 111 > 2

Greatsword Burst: Greatsword 5 > “Nothing Can Save You!” > GS 4 > “Chilled to the Bone!” > 3 > 2 > Enter Shroud > 2 > 3 > 4 > 5 > 111 > 2

Stay in Shroud using the 1 skill preferably until your Shroud 2 recharges so you can use it to leap back to the safety of your healers when you leave Shroud and continue using Axe/Focus skills until your Life Force is regenerated and you are ready for your next burst.
