Deadeye - Power DPS P/P

The community gave this build a rating, making it second-tier: Good

Focused on: Strike damage

Designed for: Raids

Overview

A pistol/pistol spamming Deadeye build.

Despite being one of the oldest memes in Guild Wars 2, this build deals decent sustained ranged damage, isn't reliant on Alacrity Alacrity or Might Might uptime, and is far more mobile than Deadeye - Power DPS Rifle. This makes it viable for kiting mechanics (such as flak on Sabetha) or doing ranged strat on Deimos.

If you are actually able to melee the boss Deadeye - Power DPS D/D will usually perform better.

Usage

This build doesn't have a real rotation and follows a simple DPS priority. The basic idea is to use and hold down with Netflix on your second screen.

If you are at max malice, you should use either or a stolen skill to gain stealth, then reset your malice with . This procs and allows you to start building up malice to proc again, which gives you the initiative to sustain .

  • Press and off cooldown.
  • Try to attack the boss from the back or sides to maximize your uptime.
  • Although you are ranged you should still try to stay in range of your Chronomancer's . This is so that you can maintain boons for .
  • If possible, precast a few times with Trickery traited before the fight begins. This lets you have up at the beginning of the fight for more burst damage.

I love this build! It gives a relaxing rotation usability in raids. It also makes optimal use of the Malice/inItiative so you would rarely run out of Unload if you are doing the rotation correctly.

Decent build for kiting, and might be worth it in very disorganized groups with poor might uptime, but there isn't much else it can do.
