Focused on: DamageSupport.

Designed for:


Put a complete loop of Quickness Quickness on you and your team to dramatically increase DPS, use the Firebrand's unique and powerful support skills, spam boons, and unleash a long chain featuring aoe, double strikes, and quite a few burning tricks.

Play it in GW2's Open World in a large sens as you can play it competitively in PvE, PvP, and WvW without having to change anything.




  • This build uses an offensive set (axe-torch), and a defensive set (scepter-focus) with according stats and sigils. The defensive set was introduced because the build already has two damage skillbars that can loop (axe-torch and 24px Tome of Justice), and it adds ranged attacks.
  • The high synergy of utility skills with the rest of the build clearly limits possibilities of variants.



  • Right-Hand Strength.png Right-Hand Strength even though you're not using a sword. Better for short fights or if you're expecting external sources of Fury Fury.
