GW2. WvW Build. Power Specter Roaming Build. Specter. Thief World vs World.
Last Update: October 2023
The Power Specter is a thief build with the burst potential of the dagger/pistol set, but the mobility of the sword/dagger. Because it has wells, it no longer requires shortbow to kite in between cooldowns, and instead can do combos between the two melee weapon sets because of the increased sustain of shadow shroud.
Combining Wells with Sword 2 allows you to extend their range but also to place Wells directly on your target. This is great for easily landing them, but requires a bit of timing (need to press sword 2 at different times in each well animation, practice this).
Try to time the detonation of your Shroud 5 with your port engages to stun enemies in your Well of Tears or other attacks.
F1 > Well of Bounty + Sword 2 > Dagger 5 > Sword 1 > Enter Shroud > 24352
Sword 2 + Shadowfall > Enter Shroud > 245 > Leave Shroud > Dagger 5 > Swap > Dagger 1 > 222
Stealth: Pistol 5 + Shroud 2/3 or Dagger 2
