Relics

  • Relic of the Herald - higher uptime on important boons.
  • Relic of Isgarren - potentially higher uptime of 10% extra damage than what Fireworks provides, but you have less control over it (if you're chasing a target or you don't want to stop doing damage then it becomes harder to proc).


Consumables

Food

  • - food equivalent of Celestial, boosts all stats and reduces strike damage taken. All around great option for a build that needs a bit of tankiness while constantly pumping out damage.
  • - same stats as the other food but reduces the duration of incoming conditions instead of reducing strike damage taken.
  • - more endurance regen translates to more dodges in combat.


Utility

  • or .


Usage

General

  • Most of the damage on the build comes from camping Flame Jet.
    • Juggernaut and Mass Momentum passively stack Might Might and Stability Stability while in Flamethrower kit.
  • Toss Elixir H counts as a healing skill and therefore applies superspeed. Another elixir toolbelt with a similar effect is Toss Elixir U. These are great at both sticking to targets and escaping from them.
  • Sigil of Superior Sigil of Celerity applies Quickness on a 20s ICD, which lines up with the CD of Thunderclap perfectly.
  • There's not a whole lot of cleansing in the build, most of it comes from swapping in and out of Flamethrower to proc Sigil of Cleansing every ~9 seconds.
  • Hammer mostly fills a defensive role although it has good damage. Use it to block, evade, and reflects attacks.
  • Relic of Fireworks activates on Thunderclap and Function Gyro.
  • Elixirs remove conditions.

Another one of those builds that don't look like much but can be surprisingly effective. Very chill build, doesn't get more beginner friendly than this and will work just fine in most cases. If you intend to play WvW a bit more competitively though then maybe you should pick something else. For just some casual roaming this is perfect however, especially if you want to focus on taking camps. It's a 3/5 against players but a 5/5 when it comes to flipping camps.
