GW2. WvW Build. Power Rifle Mechanist Roaming Build. Explosive Rocket. Engineer World vs World.
Last Update: October 2023
The Explosive Mechanist relies on ranged damage to poke targets out of their cooldowns then finish them off with big burst combos. The synergy of the explosives traitline with the Jade Mortar trait allows the mech to deal much more damage, meaning you can kite while controlling it to deal great damage. While this build is very low on sustain and does not have many ways to preserve the mech, it has top tier mobility to disengage while the mech is dead or while you are out of cooldowns.
Jade Mortar Burst: Rifle 2 > Tool Kit 5 > Tool Kit 3 + F3, avoid using F3 while the target is moving or far ranged, its pathing is slow and hard to land, use it after you pull them to you.
Rifle Burst: F2 > Rifle 4 + F1 > Rifle 5 > Rifle 3
Use Mortar Kit to pressure enemies while you are kiting, and use Rifle to pressure enemies while you are agressing on them. Use Rifle 2 to keep enemies from getting out of range of your mech, but remain at least 450 distance to be able to trigger the explosives missile passive.
