Hammer Catalyst Roaming Build

GW2. WvW Build. Fresh Air Catalyst Roaming Build. Hammer Catalyst. Elementalist World vs World 2022.

Last Update: March 11


Overview

The Fresh Air Hammer Catalyst is a roaming elementalist build for WvW which scales up in larger fights with the jade spheres giving many boons to allies. The rotating orbs and jade spheres can not only provide many buffs and damage but also a great counter to aegis and blinds with how quickly they pulse.

Fresh Air recharges air attunement when critting outside of air attunement, allowing burst combos by swapping into air for many ferocity buffs in the middle of any of the many high damaging “2” skills in each attunement. Air attunement also gives superspeed, so using the longer ranged skills like the jade spheres that can crit can help to keep swapping in and out of air attunement to keep distance or keep up with enemies who move faster.

Try to use the augment utilities like Soothing Water in your water jade sphere and Fortified Earth inside the earth jade sphere to get extremely low cooldowns on them which grant you extra blocks, cleanses, and sustain.
