Ranger - Shout Axe Beastmaster
Note: Please note that builds will default to plain icons, these may not be as accurate. We apologize for the inconvenience.
A Ranger build which focuses on direct damage, mobility and Team support. The build offers a lot of fury, swiftness and regeneration and High Spike Damage- is capable of dealing with conditions on you and able to resist direct damage spikes.
Variants replace with Can't find such trait "Vigorous Training"! Please refer to our trait index or is up to you if you don't choose warhorn in the offhand
Variants replace with if you want more control and defensive via taunt or for more offensive power with might and quickness. I prefer the Axe Trait for more AoE Cleavedamage and Chill. Personal Preference, every Grandmaster Trait will work here.
Equipment for PvP
Usage of the Build
Like mentioned in the overview we have a good mobility with this build. Keep that always in mind and have an eye on the minimap to help Teammates and make use of opportunities like empty farpoints, secondary objectives and overextended offpoint player.
Keep the boons up on your Teammates, stack them especially at the beginning of a match.
- "We Heal As One!" all of this skills provide swiftness regeneration and/or fury.
Play with Axe/Warhorn and Brown Bear to start a fight, send your Bear in and Autoattack from outside of the point, look at the Status of your Teammates to support with Conditionmanagement use:
Engage an enemy who is vulnerable or targeted by your team with Greatsowrd and your Tiger. Try to Initiate with your Furious-Maul Combo and Spike Enemies. During the fight keep your Autoattackchain going, the other weaponskills are only used if required.
The Furious-Maul Combo
This Combo makes use of the Synergy between
and the many Sources of Fury especially from Furious Pounce which now always crits and the increased Pet damage by
which stacks with the +25%damage from the opening strike.
Start to activate Furious Pounce when you are near the enemy.
During the Tiger prepares to jump at the target, hit with your
and immediatly start to activate your
If timed correctly your Tiger jumps at the target with a guaranteed critical hit and stacked damage from the skills and traits. Your Maul should hit right after the Pounce of the Tiger which gives Fury and your Maul the Bonus damage of the regained opening strike with remorseless.
Practice makes perfect and try to improve your timing at the Golems in the Mists.
Tipps and Tricks
Stack Might with your Warhorn on the Pet and copy the boons to yourself.
Continue with the Furious-Maul Combo after this stacking rotation for even more damage.
Jump out of fights and for moving around the map quickly use
blocks projectiles, if you are out of melee range, for the whole duration.
You regain the opening strike from remorseless even if you still have Fury on you. Always hard to see but it works, especially
makes profit of that.
Use your Bear as a shield, but be nice to her outside of the combat.
