Power Herald DPS Build

GW2. Raid Build. Power Herald. DPS Revenant PvE.


Last Update: January 2024


Overview

The Power Herald is a DPS revenant build with mobility and the potential to give the Quickness boon to its allies. It is a flexible melee assassin that plays around burst but also provides great CC and utility.

Playstyle

Role: DPS

Your main priority is to upkeep quickness on your squad which is gained by having a minimum of six (-6 or 1 degeneration) arrows of energy upkeep, so try to upkeep the Impossible Odds in Shiro Stance and the Vengeful Hammers in Jalis Stance.

Skill Priority:

  • Impossible Odds/Vengeful Hammers
  • Swap Legend Stance when out of energy
  • Sword 2
  • Sword 4/5

Sword/Sword is the best damaging weapon set, but you can choose between Greatsword and Staff depending on if you want more damage or more CC. If using Greatsword, just swap to it when all of your Sword skills are on cooldown and use the Greatsword 2/3/5. If using a Staff, only swap to it when you need CC from the Staff 5 or some extra defense from the Staff 3 blocks or cleanse on the 4 skill.

Provide Stability to your allies if necessary with the Inspiring Reinforcements in Jalis, and when situations get dangerous you can toggle your F2 passive in Jalis to provide damage reduction to your allies or in Shiro for lifesteal.

  1. How does the damage of using Kali’s compare to glint? I do appreciate the extra stability and ease of use of Kali’s!
