Power Herald Roaming Build

GW2. Power Herald Roaming Build.


Overview

The Power Herald is an assassin playstyle which can single out targets and burst them with ports and the sword abilities, but it also has good sustain and AoE for larger fights. It is one of the harder builds to learn because of the energy management, but by pooling energy you can perform big combos which can shift the momentum of a fight. It is susceptible to CC and focus, and since it is a melee build, knowing when to go in is key to performing well.

Synergy

The energy refresh on legend swap allows for large burst combos. Setting up a CC from one and then following through with the burst from another legend stance provides the momentum required to secure kills. Despite being so aggressively built, the build can time Facet of Light strategically to convert damage taken to healing, allowing it more risky positioning.

Playstyle

Precast the Shiro Heal then Phase Traversal to the main target when it is safe to do so. Use the Consume Facet for unblockable boon removal and the pulsing lifesteal from Draconic Echo. Then swap to Glint Stance and use all of your sword abilities for burst damage. Alternatively, open with Burst of Strength while in Glint Stance for the damage modifiers, then Use the Facet of Chaos Chaotic Release to knock enemies back. Use Facet of Elements while they are CC and swap to Shiro with Sword 3 and Impossible Odds.

  1. To paraphrase another user, should we make any sigil changes due to the brutal, vicious, cruel, unnecessary, and sadistic removal of the legend-swap + swap-sigil interaction?
