Power Scrapper Quickness DPS Build

GW2. Raid Build. Power Scrapper Quickness DPS Build. Engineer PvE.


Last Update: April 2024


Role: DPS or Tank

The Power Scrapper Quickness DPS is an engineer build with high self sustain by converting damage dealt into self barrier that allows it to be a tank while providing superspeed and quickness to the group, making it great for encounters with a lot of movement. It can also optionally run grenades for a full DPS playstyle.

You provide Quickness to allies by performing Leap and Blast finishers inside Combo Fields, which are available by using Hammer 3/Function Gyro/Blast Gyro, Detonate Mine, and even the Healing Turret. If your team has no combo fields, you can always use the Hammer 5/Function Gyro/Shredder Gyro static fields to combo in.

While waiting for your combos, deal damage using your hammer abilities in melee or at range with the mortar or grenades.


Skill Priority:

  • Blast Gyro > Shredder Gyro > Function Gyro
  • Throw Mine/Mine Field > Detonate Mine
  • Hammer 5 + 3
  • Grenade 2/4/5 (if using Grenades)
  • Healing Turret (if quickness is needed)
  • Hammer 2/1 if Melee
  • Mortar/Grenade 1 if Ranged

CC ‚Äď Crowd Control Skills:

  • Blast Gyro, Hammer 5, Hammer 3 + Lightning Field, Throw Mine

  1. As an engineer enjoyer, I actually recommend playing this build with rifle instead. Couple of reasons: 1) Ranged gameplay makes it easier to position yourself well in fights and makes it easier to have high dps uptime. 2) Overcharged Shot, provides 232 deviance bar break over only 100 from thunderclap. 3) Rifle Burst Grenade ensures a constant stream of explosions on auto-attack which is great for explosives tradeline synergy. 4) Jump Shot profides excelent mobility in tricky situations 5) Using rifle makes aim-assistant rocket viable which yields better dps over explosive temper.

  2. There is no Quickness provided to either yourself or your teammates. Do you actually mean “superspeed”?

  3. Heya, new to raids here. I would like to tank on my engi using this spec here but I dont see any added toughness in the items. How does this build aggo the boss?
