Overview

The Power Bladesworn is a Warrior DPS that deals heavy burst damage but requires good timing to land the massive Dragon Slashes.


Full DPS Variant


Playstyle

Role: DPS

Using Ammunition skills and Explosions will grant damage modifiers. Combined with the Overcharged Cartridges which increases the damage done by Explosives, you can maximize the damage of your hardest hitting skill, the Dragon Slash.

Skill Priority

  • Try to use the Overcharged Cartridges right before Pistol 5 because you will always use that right before Dragon Slash, boosting your two hardest hitting explosives.
  • Cast your heal skill “To the Limit!” to gain your first bit of Flow or when you have down time in a fight. Use Flow Stabilizer off cooldown and upfront to max out your flow.
  • When your Dragonspike Mine is off cooldown, use it right after your Dragon Slash to do a second one right after. Make sure to spam Flow Stabilizer when about to do this. Use Tactical Reload before this as well to increase the speed of your first Dragon Slash so that both can fit inside your Overcharged Cartridges duration.

Example Rotation:

  1. Precast “To the Limit!” and all of your Flow Stabilizer as soon as you get in combat.
  2. Use Axe abilities until enough flow is gained then cast Overcharged Cartridges (and Tactical Reload if ready) and use Pistol 5
  3. Enter Dragon Trigger F2 and cast 4/5 if needed, then cast the Dragon Slash: Force 1 when fully charged (use 2 if out of range, and 3 if out of range and you don’t want to move)
  4. If Dragonspike Mine is up, use it and then cast another Dragon Slash
  5. Use all Gunblade 2/3/4 ammo charges until you can swap back to Axe/Pistol
  6. Axe 2 and Pistol 4, then repeat from step 2, going into your burst with Overcharged Catridges > Pistol 5 > F2

Gameplay


Quickness Banner Variant


Using the same gear as the DPS build, but using banners and the Discipline trait Doubled Standards allows a simpler playstyle that can provide many boons to its squad including quickness.

  1. May want to change the overview since it still says “Banner Bladesworn”
