Combo Untamed Roaming Build

GW2. WvW Build. Power Combo Untamed Roaming Build. Ranger World vs World 2023.


Last Update: January 2023



Longbow Variant


Overview

The Combo Untamed offers high burst damage and good mobility. It can combine manual control of the pet’s positioning through ports/pet swapping with CC to land massive combos with the pet which can “one shot” most enemies. This variant works well with the opportunist nature of roaming, make sure to bait some cooldowns or dodges before commit to the full combo or just gank distracted enemies. In longer fights you will need to show your skills at kiting to buy time until you can prepare a combo again.

The Remorseless trait grants Opening Strike when gaining fury, which increases the next attack’s damage by 25% and makes it 100% critical. Fury is gained when swapping pets or landing any disable.

Example Combos:

Stealth: Smokescale F2 > Unleash Pet > F2 > Greatsword 3

Basic Opener: Start on Smokescale > Unleash Ranger > Hilt Bash + Unnatural Traversal > Pet Swap > Maul > Tail Swipe

Full Potential Opener: Unleashed Smokescale > F1/F2/F3 > (Can bait with Longbow then swap) > Unleash Ranger > Hilt Bash + Unnatural Traversal > Pet Swap > Maul > Tail Swipe > Mutate Conditions (Optional) > Savage Slash Ambush > Chomp

Hammer Variant


Overview

The Combo Untamed with Hammer is a melee ranger build for WvW roaming with high burst and mobility. It can combine manual control of the pet’s positioning through ports/pet swapping with CC to land massive combos with the pet.

This variant can perform very well but might be better with a small group setup, for solo the Longbow variant will be more versatile.

The Remorseless trait grants Opening Strike when gaining fury, which increases the next attack’s damage by 25% and makes it 100% critical. Fury is gained when swapping pets or landing any disable. This means you should generally use CC skills like Hammer 3 and 5 while not unleashed, Greatsword 5, and Greatsword 4’s counter-attack; if these land, go into your heavy hitting abilities Unleashed Hammer 2/5 and Greatsword 2.

Example Combos:

Stealth: Smokescale F2 > Unleash Pet > F2 > Hammer 5 > Swap > Greatsword 3

Opener 1: Unleashed Smokescale > F1/F2/F3 > Unleash Ranger > F3 > F1 > Hammer 5 > 2

Opener 2: Unleashed Smokescale > F1/F2/F3 > Hammer 5 + Unnatural Traversal > Unleash Ranger > Hammer 2 > Swap > Greatsword Ambush > Greatsword 2

Finisher: Unleash Ranger > Greatsword 5 + Unnatural Traversal > Swap to River Drake > Greatsword 2 + F3

  1. I’ve played both versions and both are really fun to play and more resilient that what I though tbh…. (It’s a high risk high reward build…. But when you make it work is really rewarding!)

    However I still struggle to consistently do the double hammer 5 leap, is there any trick or tip to do it or just practice timing because at this point I’ve tried and sometimes happen and sometimes not and would be handy to know if I’m missing something

    Thanks!!!!
