Scepter Catalyst Roaming Build

GW2. WvW Build. Scepter Catalyst Roaming Build. Scepter Catalyst. Elementalist World vs World 2023.


Last Update: January 2023



Air Variant


The Scepter Catalyst is a roaming elementalist build for WvW with ranged burst potential and plenty of boons to support sustained combat.

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.

Try to 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

Fire Variant


With Fire, you focus more on the Flamestrike Fire 1 to do damage, but setting up situations to be able to do so requires positioning or CC. Try to land the Air 5 Gale or get distance in Water with chills from 2 and 4. There is plenty of cleansing from the Smothering Auras trait, which you can get from mostly the Fire Attunement 5 aura and transmuting that aura.

Skill Combos:

Earth Jade Sphere > 2 > 3 > 2 > Swap Fire > Fire Jade Sphere > 2 > 111 > 3

Air Jade Sphere > 5 > Swap Fire > 2 > 111 > 3

Water 4 > 2 > 3 > 5 > Swap Fire > 2 > 111 > 3
