Power Spellbreaker Build

GW2. Raid Build. Power Spellbreaker. Warrior PvE 2022.

Last Update: October 4


Overview

The Power Spellbreaker is a Tank/DPS warrior build with great sustain due to Full Counter and Defiant Stance allowing you to negate the damage of mechanics while also bringing the utility of boon removal. You can provide quickness and other boons with Banners, or go for full DPS.

Playstyle

Role: Tank DPS

Always prioritize your burst skills on the boss to get the Magebane Tether on the target and to build up stacks of Berserker’s Power, then land your disables on the target from Dagger 3 and Banner of Might to gain stacks of Attacker’s Insight. Then prioritize landing your Whirling Axe 5 with all your damage modifiers.

The flow of your build should be to use your burst skills when possible and then all of your weapon skills in between your bursts, swap weapon after using your second burst and then repeat. Use banners off cooldown instead of some of the weapon skills, but not instead of a burst skill, always try to keep your burst skills on cooldown.

Example Rotation:

  • Open with Banners and getting adrenaline
  • Dagger 3 > Axe 4 > 5
  • Dagger F1 > Swap

Then perform the following in a loop

  • Greatsword F1 > 2 > 3 > 4 > 5 > F1 > Swap
  • Dagger F1 > 2 > 3 > 4 > 5 > F1 > Swap

If necessary, use Defiant Stance to ignore mechanics or Full Counter F2 to evade an attack, which can also recharge your F1 with enough adrenaline.
