Strength Bladesworn PvP Build

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.

Burst Combos:

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

  1. For burst combo it says Axe 3 > Pistol 4 > Pistol 5 > Axe 2, why not Axe 3 > Pistol 5 > Pistol 4 > Pistol 5 > Axe 2, is that a loss of damage?

    • Pistol 5 is a self knockback and pistol 4 is a small charge. The combo should be pistol 5 > pistol 4, because then you are in range to use Axe 2.

      If you do pistol 4 > pistol 5 then you will most likely be out of range of axe 2.

      The video probably shows the correct combo
