“Sic ‘Em!” Soulbeast Roaming Build

GW2. “Sic ‘Em!” Soulbeast Roaming Build. Power Survival Roaming Build. Ranger 2022.



Last Update: October 2022



Skirmishing Variant


Overview

This version of Soulbeast is much more aggressively oriented. The modifier from “Sic ‘Em!” will grant you the damage instead of your pet if used while merged. Combined with quickness from the celerity sigil, the other damage modifiers from Beastmastery and Skirmishing, and the longbow’s range, you can have massive burst damage.

Synergy

Your sustain is mostly tied to regeneration from shouts and boon extension and intelligent usage of the Quick Draw trait which makes your next weapon ability recharge significantly faster after swapping weapons. This allows you to choose which skill you want more of, and for example lets you use Hunter’s Shot twice for great stealth uptime, or to Swoop twice to get out of range of the combat.

Beastly Warden is an interesting trait that makes the build have quite a bit of crowd control. The taunt from beast skills will trigger after your Smokescale’s Smoke Cloud and your Worldly Impact, however the cooldown for both is somewhat separate. If you are merged both cooldowns will be set off, but if your pet uses their taunt first, and then you merge and use Worldly Impact, you can essentially taunt twice in a row, allowing you to bait out lots of dodges or stun breaks from the enemy.

Playstyle

The basic burst combo is Merge > One Wolf Pack > “Sic ‘Em!” > Point Blank Shot > Rapid Fire > Smoke Assault > Worldly Impact then you can follow through with Maul and Swoop on greatsword.

Wilderness Survival Variant


Overview

This version of Soulbeast is balanced between a very good damage output and good sustain with the ability to survive most situations. It is very robust and great for beginners while still having plenty of skill cap.

Synergy

The Beast Mastery and Wilderness Survival trait lines grant plenty of sustain to this build.

Condition cleanses come from the Wilderness Knowledge trait, which whenever you use a survival utility skill you cleanse 2 conditions. Troll Unguent counts as two survival skills because it has a passive Lesser Muddy Terrain that is also a survival, and also merging gives Lesser Quickening Zephyr which counts as another survival skill.

Playstyle

Merging with the Smokescale allows aggressive burst combos with a good port to target from long range, which can be combined with the Greatsword for a lot of damage. Maul is the hardest hitting attack and boosts the damage of your next attack if you are merged, so it can be precasted into a Wordly Impact or refreshed with Hilt Bash.

Make sure to always use “Sic ‘Em” while merged so that your pet does not get the damage buff, but rather that you do. Use this during your bursts for heavy damage modifiers.

After using all of the Smokescale burst skills, you can unmerge and use the F2 of the Smokescale as a smoke field and leap through it with Swoop for stealth. This allows you to reposition to use your Longbow at range.

Cast Barrage while in stealth from combos or from Hunter’s Shot to cover yourself because you must stand still to cast it. On large groups this does plenty of damage for a long duration. Rapid Fire is your main burst in longbow, so try to land it after landing your Point Blank Shot or after baiting their cooldowns and dodges.

Now with Eternal Bond you can swap pets once merged.
