GW2. WvW Build. Power Scrapper Roaming Build. Scrapper. Engineer World vs World.
Last Update: May 2023
The Power Scrapper has very high burst damage from damage modifiers combined with the Vision Sigil for 100% critical chance on the Grenade Barrage. Damage dealt turns into barrier from the Impact Savant trait meaning a more aggressive playstyle will get rewarded with more sustain. Hammer also offers some versatility with a block, reflect and evades. However this build is very susceptible to conditions, especially immobilize, so it is very important to use your mobility and superspeed to position yourself in between your bursts.
Upkeeping the damage modifiers from Object in Motion and Explosive Tempers requires upkeeping stability, superspeed, swiftness, and landing grenades. Cast your elixirs at your feet in between combos or toss grenades while kiting. There is almost always a skill you can be using. The fury and swiftness generation is not reliable so it is important to do big damage combos while the Vision sigil is active by swapping to or from Grenade Kit when ready to burst.
Basic Opener Combo: F1/Heal > Elixir U > Hammer 5 > Swap Grenade Kit + Grenade Barrage > Grenade 2/4/5
Setup your Ground Targeting option as “Instant” as well as enabling “Skill Retargeting” and practice aiming with your Grenade Kit while moving for better accuracy. This improves your damage output while under pressure or kiting drastically. If you still have issues to land grenades you can try using the option “Snap Ground Target to Current Target” and the grenades will go to your target as long you are in range, just make sure to detarget before using any other AoE like if you want to throw an elixir at your location.
