Power Spellbreaker Roaming Build

GW2. WvW Build. Power Spellbreaker Defense Roaming Build. Warrior World vs World.


Last Update: May 2024


The Power Spellbreaker is an aggressive melee Warrior build for WvW roaming with very high boon removal to take down heavy targets. Positioning and animation timing is key to everything on this build since warrior skills have very defined ranges and telegraphs. Dodge towards your enemy, not away, so you can stay on top of them. This build can be played with Dagger or with Hammer depending your preference.

Full Counter is the main mechanic of Spellbreaker, it will absorb damage and counterattack all foes around you with unblockable daze, and due to trait synergy it will remove boons and refresh your other weapon burst skill, allowing you to do three bursts in a row with enough adrenaline generation.


TWO VARIANTS

Gear is the same but weapons and traits change

  • Dagger/Shield goes with Greatsword
  • Hammer goes with Staff

With Dagger you gain access to Breaching Strike which allows you to counter much of the boon spam prevalent in WvW through unblockable and boon removal. Also your animations are less telegraphed with dagger and greatsword, making it much better in small scale fights and duels where enemies are paying attention to you.

With Hammer you gain access to Earthshaker which allows you to engage on enemies with a stun to enable your burst combos with CC chains. While you may not have the best mobility, you can lock enemies down if you do manage to catch them. It is countered by stability.

Regardless of which weapon you use, you want to set up your F1 burst skill by landing a good CC and then swapping weapon or following through with your burst. Keep up the damage while they are stunned, then use Full Counter when they try to attack you again, then use the F1 burst again. Swap back to your other weapon set to regain adrenaline, bait cooldowns, and set up your next burst combo. Rampage is also great for the sheer amount of disables it has to set up your next combo.

Dagger/GS Combos: Dagger 2 > 3 > Shield 4 > Swap > Greatsword F1 > 2 > 3

Greatsword 4 > 5 > 3 > Swap > Dagger F1 > Full Counter > Shield 4 > Dagger F1 > Bull’s Charge > Swap > Greatsword F1 > 2

Hammer/Staff Combos: Staff 3 > 2 > 4 > Swap > Hammer 2 > F1 > 4 > 5 > 2 > Swap > Staff F1

Hammer 3 > Bull’s Charge > 2 > 4 > 5 > 2 > F1 > Swap > Staff F1 > 2 > Rampage > 4 > 3 > 2 > 5 > Staff 4 > Swap > Hammer F1 > 2

Avoid using Staff 4 when your weapon swap is still on cooldown, as most of its value is setting up your hammer burst. Much of your sustain relies on landing burst skills. Even Full Counter must hit an enemy if it triggers to grant you its benefits of the Adrenal Health trait. You should always try to be in melee range when using Full Counter so it has a chance to hit.

  1. Hi there! Love these builds so muxh . Im stuck between this build and a meditrapper DH . Could you give me your personal choice for roaming between the 2?

    • Personally Id prefer DH because you have ranged damage and you will need it more often than you think

  2. Hi ! My favourite spec is Spellbreaker. Would you take this build as it is for roaming with all the EoD specs around? Or would you change some sigils or runes? Thanks for answers !

    • This build is fine for now, but might change after October patch, so check again later or join GuildJen Discord for more discussions and updates

  3. Was wondering an alternite rune to durability . Until i can afford and unlock 6 durability runes

  4. Hello, is greatsword or hammer Spellbreaker build good for open world?.

  5. I really, really want to use double dagger. I love the style. Any recommendations for that? 🙂 thank you!

    • It won’t be good, you will lose a lot of survival wihout shield but if you still wanna do it, just change one trait and take Dogged March.

  6. I think this build is only 80% crit? should I use precision infusion for that or marauder stat for equipment?
