GW2. Raid Build. Power Dragonhunter. DPS Guardian PvE.
Last Update: September 2023
The Power Dragonhunter is a DPS guardian build with great burst and team support through blocks. It is also decently survivable, has mobility, and does not have a complex rotation, making it one of the more reliable builds for new players.
Land all of your high damaging abilities inside the duration of your Spear of Justice and Resolution boon. Use all of the skills in one weapon set, and then swap and use all of the ones in the other to try to land everything inside the spear’s duration, then when the Spear is up again repeat the process in the other direction. Prioritize using Sword of Justice while in Longbow because the auto attacks are not as powerful as the Greatsword’s.
Longbow 4 > F1 > Procession of Blades > Longbow 5 > Sword of Justice > Longbow 2 > Swap > Greatsword 2 > 4 > 5 > 3 > 2
Greatsword 4 > F1 > Procession of Blades > Greatsword 5 > 3 > 2 > Longbow 2 > 4 > 5 > Sword of Justice > 2
Always use Longbow 2 or Greatsword 2 first after swapping weapon because those are the lowest cooldown for highest damage skills that you can use multiple times per swap. Use Dragon’s Maw whenever it is off cooldown during your Spear of Justice burst, or save it for CC if needed.
Use the Purification heal skill when there is time to maintain Resolution uptime and to retrigger your Dragonhunter relic debuff.
