Maybe it never coalesced into something brilliant. Maybe it never made it off the ground floor. Maybe we based our better ideas off of it. Basic builds are anywhere from downright bad to just shy of being good enough to showcase. These builds share the widest ratings and can lead to wildly differing levels of success.

Focused on: Direct damage.

Equipment

Ascended gear and stat infusions are not required; you can use exotic gear with the same stats.

Standard Equipment

The Standard Variant uses similar gear to the Holosmith - Power DPS build for fractals and raids. This makes it a good general-purpose gear set and is the gear that most players should aim for.

Optimal Equipment

The Optimal Variant is the best possible gear for this build. It's overkill in most cases, and you should only get it if you have spare gold or you don’t care about fractals and raids.

Usage

Boon Management

  • 41% boon duration can be reached without a single point of concentration invested in equipment, if equipped with 6x
    and
    and traited with 24px Compounding Chemicals.
  • Use Elixir B.png Elixir B off cooldown. You should also use Elixir U.png Elixir U off cooldown unless you seriously need the stun break. Use elixir skills (traited with HGH.png HGH) on the tool belt to keep the Might Might stack above 10 in order to trigger Applied Force.png Applied Force off cooldown, so that Quickness Quickness will be maintained.

Damage

Crowd Control

  • Thunderclap.png Thunderclap stuns your target on the first strike. It also provides a lightening field, which, in combination with the leap finisher viaRocket Charge.png Rocket Charge, dazes your target.
  • Personal Battering Ram.png Personal Battering Ram - heavy crowd control on a short cooldown.

Defense

Sustain

Healing
  • Elixir Shell.png Elixir Shell in the Elite Mortar Kit.png Elite Mortar Kit provides a water field, which can be combo-blasted with Orbital Strike.png Orbital Strike on tool belt, Blast Gyro Tag.png Blast Gyro Tag or Acid Bomb.png Acid Bomb via Elixir Gun.png Elixir Gun for additional healing.
  • You can pick Healing Turret.png Healing Turret up for a cooldown reduction, or detonate it to blast the water field for more healing. Refer to the previous point for other available blast finishers.
    • Never leave your Healing Turret out: the healing you get from the passive regeneration is worse than if you pick it up and put it down again.
Damage Reduction
  • Bulwark Gyro.png Bulwark Gyro provides great personal and group sustenance with just one click.
Condition Removal
  • Flash Shell.png Flash Shell via Elite Mortar Kit.png Elite Mortar Kit provides access to light field, which can be combo-blasted for AoE cleansing.
  • Elixir Gun.png Elixir Gun allows you to cleanse conditions on your allies (though not on yourself) with Fumigate.png Fumigate. It also provides a light field with Super Elixir.png Super Elixir, allowing you to perform a combo with a blast finisher for AoE cleansing.

I think this build is perfectly fine for open world. Has great burst and might generation is really good if you use Bulwark Gyro (for the Defense Field, because it gives Stability and every second you have stability, you gain might and Blast Gyro which gives out 2 stacks of might per pulse and there's 4 pulses.). This build can have great personal survivability and great utility. Of course it's not as good as Holosmith or as useful as a Support Scrapper, but it can really be nice damage. I think Power Scrapper deserves more love. Just change some things in this build and you may not regret it!

A very good solo build and quite bursty, but is a bit lacking in damage.

This build has good sustained damage and survivability and is probably the best Scrapper build you can play in open world.
