GW2. Strength Bladesworn PvP Build. Warrior.
Last Update: September 2023
The Strength Bladesworn is a DPS warrior build that generates might from Dragon Trigger (F2) for increased damage and to gain plenty of sustain to survive in team fights.
Defense traits offer cleansing on your Dragon Slash (F2) which is your main burst enabler because when using the Boost (2) it can dash you into range and stun your target to land your other burst skills. However, the Reach (3) in Dragon Trigger can be harder for enemies to dodge and will more likely trigger your Adrenal Health and Cleansing Ire on landing burst skills for sustain.
Despite having high sustain you are still relatively squishy because of a susceptibility to CC. Try to use the Pistol 4 and Gunblade 4 to gain Aegis, while using the Gunblade 5 without a target to reposition in between bursts. Aegis will also reflect projectiles due to the Shield Master trait.
Axe 3 > Pistol 5 > Pistol 4 > Axe 2
Gunblade 5 > 3 > 2 > 4
Dragon Trigger > 5 (port for line of sight) > Dragon Slash: Boost (2) > Gunblade 3 > 4
- Weapon: Shield/Warhorn work for more defensive playstyles
