Support Scourge WvW Zerg Build

GW2. WvW Build. Support Scourge WvW Zerg Build. Support Scourge. Necromancer World vs World.


Last Update: May 2024


The Support Scourge is a necromancer build that can give barrier to its allies in WvW squads to keep them alive while also providing boons and ripping boons from enemies. Specifically, giving barrier to allies will cleanse conditions from them, give alacrity, might, and extra health. Using your Manifest Sand Shade F1 will help to apply more barrier to your squad, as it will cast your F2-5 abilities around those shades as well as yourself. Using your Shade abilities off cooldown is necessary to sustaining these benefits.

While you do not actively heal much, healing power still increases the amount of barrier you provide. You can give some minor regeneration when dodging to create Marks of Blood.

Applying Barrier: F1, F3, F5, Sand Flare, Serpent Siphon


Because these shade abilities have very little time and animation investment, you can use your weapon skills to rip boons or CC enemies meanwhile.

CC: Warhorn 4, Greatsword 5, F4

Ranged Boon Removal: Well of Corruption, F5, Axe 3, Serpent Siphon

Melee Boon Removal: Ghastly Breach, Greatsword 4, Trail of Anguish

  1. Support Scourge is by far my favorite build for WvW. I’ve been running it for the last year plus, and it warms my black heart to see it finally being accepted/embraced. 🙂
