Fractal Builds

GW2. Fractal Builds for Guild Wars 2 PvE Endgame. 2022

This is a list with the most viable and accessible builds for PvE Endgame. While Fractals are only 5 player, Strike Missions and Raids often overlap because their 10 player comps are just doubling a 5 player comp. These builds are often designed for team play and coordination rather than selfish survival or pure DPS.

There are two main Roles that builds can fill in Fractals because there are no toughness tanking mechanics:

  • DPS – Focus on dealing damage and surviving with their aggressive set up.
  • Support – Keep their party alive with healing and provide boons.

The two most powerful boons to share to your party are Alacrity and Quickness, so builds that can provide permanent uptime of these boons to a 5-player group will also have these icons next to them.

A balanced composition will usually have 1 Support and 4 DPS, or 1 Support, 3 DPS, and 1 utility class that can be a hybrid between DPS/Support. For more information on how to get the gear to play these builds, how to play specific roles in the composition, and the mechanics of the fights you will want to use these builds in, check out these guides:
