Scepter Catalyst PvP Build

GW2. Scepter Catalyst PvP Build. Elementalist.

Last Update: September 2023

Fresh Air Variant

The Scepter Catalyst is a Roamer elementalist with ranged burst potential and good sustain which can also scale up in team fights due to the combo finishers and boons it provides with the Jade Sphere.

Fresh Air recharges air attunement when critting outside of air attunement, allowing burst combos by swapping into air for many ferocity buffs and vulnerability application in the middle of any of the many high damaging skills in each attunement. Air attunement also gives superspeed, so using the longer ranged skills like the jade spheres that can crit can help to keep swapping in and out of air attunement to keep distance or keep up with enemies who move faster.

Use the augment utilities like Soothing Water in your Water Jade Sphere and Fortified Earth inside the Earth Jade Sphere to get extremely low cooldowns on them which grant you extra blocks, cleanses, and sustain.

Skill Combos:

Earth 2 > 2 > 3 > Earth Jade Sphere > Swap Air > 2 > 3

Water 2 > 3 > Swap Air > 2 > 3

Air Jade Sphere > 5 > Swap Fire > 2 > 3 > Swap Air > 2 > 3

Heal Combo: Blast Finisher in your Water Jade Sphere with Fire 3/Water 5/Earth 4

Fire Variant

With Fire, you focus more on the Flamestrike Fire 1 to build might stacks, but setting up situations to be able to do so requires positioning or CC. Combos in your Jade Sphere will grant auras, and gaining/transmuting auras will cleanse conditions and grant you protection, making you very survivable. Written in Stone will also grant Auras based on the Signet you activate, while maintaining the passive effects.

  • Signet of Air grants Shocking Aura
  • Signet of Restoration grants Frost Aura (transmute with Water 4)
  • Signet of Earth grants Magnetic Aura (reflect)

Try to CC your enemy with Air 5, Earth 4, or even Shocking aura. Then use the Air Jade Sphere for quickness and swap back into Fire attunement to burn them with the 1 skill.

Skill Combos:

Earth Jade Sphere > 2 > 3 > 2 > Swap Air > Signet of Earth > 2345 + Air Jade Sphere > Swap Fire > 23111

Fire 2 > Signet of Earth > Fire 4 > 3111 > Swap Earth > Earth 23452

Heal Combo: Blast Finisher in your Water Jade Sphere with Fire 3, Earth 4/5

Use Signet of Restoration while in Water Attunement, then Transmute the Aura (4) to cleanse and heal
