GW2. WvW Build. Power Willbender Roaming Build. Guardian World vs World.
Last Update: December 2023
The Power Willbender is a guardian WvW Roaming build that focuses on assassinating enemies with high burst damage while using mobility to find the right timing and to get out afterwards. While it can sustain decently, it must do so through disengaging and only trading with enemies when cooldowns are available. Aggression is necessary.
The high critical chance modifiers gained from resolution and fury allow the build to take the Dragon stats for high burst damage and enough vitality to stay in fights long enough to get the kill. You gain fury when hitting targets that have at least three burning stacks on them. This is why the torch trait is necessary, to gain the burns which give fury to be able to crit. Resolution is gained by using any virtue or by porting.
Basic Burst: Sword 2 > 5 > F1 > Swap > Greatsword 2
Alternative Opener: Sword 5 + Judge’s Intervention > F1 > Swap > Greatsword 2
AoE Engagement: F3 + Judge’s Intervention > Whirling Light > Greatsword 5 > 4 > 5 Pull > 2
Full Combo: F2 > Sword 2 > 5 > 4 > F1 > Swap > Whirling Light > Greatsword 3 > 5 > 4 > 5 > 2
