GW2. Trapper Dragonhunter PvP Build. Guardian.
Last Update: September 2023
The Trapper Dragonhunter is a guardian Roamer build that can output massive burst damage by pulling and pushing enemies through their Test of Faith. Though it has a good mix of ranged and melee damage with longbow and traps, it can be countered in large team fights where supports and projectile reflects exist, which is why even though it can be a good DPS, it prefers to roam. It needs to land it’s burst combos to kill targets because it does not have much sustained damage to finish kills. This makes baiting dodges and counting cooldowns extremely important.
Test of Faith Combo: F1 > Sword 2/Judge’s Intervention > Test of Faith > Shield 5 > Swap to Longbow (triggering Vision Sigil) > F1 Pull > Longbow 3 > Longbow 2
Another combo involves trapping your enemy inside your Longbow 5 ward so you can pulse multiple symbols on them while they can’t move. Since the Longbow 5 has a bit of a delay before the final attack that creates the ward, you can precast it on yourself before pulling enemies on top of you with your F1 Spear of Justice tether.
Longbow Combo: F1 > Longbow 2 > Longbow 5 (on self) > F1 Pull > Longbow 4 > Swap > Sword 2 > 3
