DPS Weaver WvW Zerg Build

GW2. WvW Build. DPS Weaver WvW Zerg Build. DPS Weaver. Elementalist World vs World.


Last Update: May 2024


The DPS Weaver is an elementalist WvW build which is a glass cannon meant to stay in the backline and constantly create ground-targeted AoEs and pulsing damaging effects like Lava Font, Meteor Shower, Fiery Greatsword, Glyph of Storms, and Pyroclastic Blast. Access to consistent ranged AoE damage makes it great pressure which makes it one of the best DPS in large situations. It is great at catching enemies that are stuck in small spaces, choke points, or contesting objectives, however, it can be hard to land its damage on enemies who are mobile. In these cases the staff still provides many utilities such as static fields, chill fields, Unsteady Ground provides a wall to organize your enemies to land your abilities.

Prioritize placing Lava Fonts (Fire 2) and then cycling through your other attunements while it is on cooldown. The (2) skills in each attunement are reliable AoE damage, and most of the Dual Attack (3) skills are large AoEs. Try to land Meteor Shower (Fire 5) at the perfect time. This requires you to wait for the enemy to be in one spot and for you to have just already been in fire attunement for a bit.

If you get in trouble, use Lightning Flash to blink away from danger. Lightning Flash can also be cast during your Meteor Shower to prevent you from being focused while standing still to cast this high value skill. Even when in your zerg, it may be dangerous because of your lack of defense, so tend to stay where your frontliners are between you and the enemy.
