Quickness Hammer Catalyst Build

GW2. Raid Build. Quickness Hammer Catalyst. Elementalist PvE 2022.

Last Update: July 2


Overview

The Quickness Catalyst is a DPS elementalist build that provides boons to its party such as might, protection, and quickness. The rotation may be complicated by mechanics and movement, so below is a priority system you can use.

Playstyle

Role: DPS 

  • Always give Quickness in Air with your Jade Sphere first before anything, quickness to your allies is more DPS than anything else you can do. If you can afford the energy, use Jade Sphere in Earth and Fire attunement for damage modifiers and protection. If your squad really needs healing, then give them the Water Sphere.
  • Cast Glyph of Storms in Fire Attunement, and Glyph of Elementals in Fire unless your team needs healing then do so in Water. Use Relentless Fire in your Fire Jade Sphere.
  • Keep the orbs in each attunement refreshed by constantly moving on to the next attunement using the next Orb. Once all four orbs are up, let them rotate for a bit then use Grand Finale to fire them off before they fade when they cannot be refreshed further.
  • Use 5 skills in each attunement to combo finisher in your Jade Sphere
  • Use 2 skills in Earth, Air, and Water Attunement while swapping out of that attunement to overlap their long casts with the next attunement.

Example Rotation:
Air Attunement > 2 > 3 > 5 > Jade Sphere
Swap Fire > 3 > 5 > Jade Sphere > Glyph of Storms > Relentless Fire > 2 > 4
Swap Earth > 3 > Jade Sphere > 5 > 2
Swap Water > 3 > 4 > 5 > 2 > Grand Finale
Repeat

  1. In this build, Jade sphere doesn’t give quickness since spectacular spear isn’t taken, or am I missing something? I’ve been playing it with the talents above, but im not sure where quickness comes from without it.

    • You’re correct, the builds are still in the process of being updated. You can just take that trait since that would be the change.
