Power Herald DPS Build

GW2. Raid Build. Power Herald. DPS Revenant PvE 2023.

Last Update: Jan 2033



Quickness Variant


Overview

The Power Herald is a DPS revenant build with wide boon coverage including might, protection, fury, swiftness, regeneration, and quickness. 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, so try to activate the Facet skills while under the extra boon duration benefit of your True Nature (F2) passive, and then activate the F2 for even more extension of those boons. Facet of Strength gives a damage bonus, so try to use your Sword 4/5 and Facet of Elements afterwards if it doesn’t delay the rotation too much.

Glint Skill Priority:

  • Sword 2
  • Use all Facets while maintaining the F2 Passive
  • Activate F2
  • Sword 4/5

Shiro Skill Priority:

  • Sword 2
  • Impossible Odds

Swap to Staff to CC with the 5 skill, or the Elite skills Chaotic Release and Jade Winds.

Gameplay


DPS Variant


Using the same gear as the Quickness variant, but focusing more on DPS, the Power Herald can take the Forceful Persistence trait which gives them damage bonuses for maintaining energy upkeep skills. Instead of activating Facets off cooldown, channel them for the damage modifiers and then burst them right before swapping to Shiro stance.

Burst Combo:

  1. Sword 2 (always use when off cooldown)
  2. Facet of Strength Active
  3. Facet of Elements Active
  4. Facet of Chaos Passive
  5. Facet of Chaos Active (if off cooldown and won’t need the CC/Superspeed)
  6. Sword 4
  7. Sword 5
  8. Swap to Shiro
  9. Impossible Odds

Try to maintain the F2 passive always to keep the damage bonuses and lifesteal, then return back to Glint and channel the Strength/Elements/Darkness Facets until your Sword 4/5 are ready, then begin the burst combo again.
