GW2. WvW Build. Condition Specter Zerg Build. Specter. Thief World vs World.
Last Update: September 2023
The Support Specter is a Thief WvW roaming build with plenty of single target healing but also good AoE healing and boon application from the Scepter, Wells, and Shroud abilities. It also has the ability to secure kills for its allies by removing boons and locking down single enemies where they can be killed without the support of their team.
Mainly you want to find a high priority ally in your party to support and put a Personal Target on them. Make sure to find keybinds for this and to Take Personal Target to use the Scepter 3 on them. This heals and ports you towards them. Afterwards you can use the second ability it turns into which pulses Barrier, Regeneration, and Quickness. Supporting a heavy DPS that can make use of the Quickness is extremely powerful, and the healing you give nearby to them can also sustain your group.
Use Well of Gloom for Resistance and Well of Bounty for Stability and Resistance on your allies. Any port skill including Wells and Scepter 3 will give a small heal to allies but also give you Shadow Shroud. Make sure you port near as many allies as possible for the most generation of Shroud because Consume Shadows heals allies when leaving Shroud for how much resource is left. Going into Shadow Shroud F2 will tether your current target and give them boons when using skills. Use 5 2 3 in Shroud for stability, cleansing, and barrier, but the Blast Finisher from 5 and 2 can be used to grant stealth with the smoke field of the Pistol 5 after leaving Shroud. With stealth you can use the sneak attack of the Scepter (1) which grants great healing to allies near the target.
Basic Ally Healing Rotation: Scepter 3 > 3 (until out of initiative) Wells > Shroud 5 2 3 111 2 > Leave Shroud > Pistol 5 (Stealth) > 1 (Shadowsquall) > Scepter 3
Not only can you heal, but in between that you can secure kills with the F1 Siphon. Due to Bountiful Theft this will steal 2 boons which prioritize removing Aegis and Stability first. It will also deal a bit of damage due to the Mug trait. This is important because when you land Siphon it can trigger the Basilisk and Devourer venoms which can Stun and Immobilize the target. So always try to share venoms to allies right before going for a kill, then use F1 Siphon on the nearest enemy.
Basic Enemy Target Combo: Devourer Venom + Basilisk Venom > F1 > Scepter 33
