Overview

Scrapper boon support build capable of providing good DPS along with 100% Quickness Quickness and Superspeed Superspeed uptime to five targets.

This build fills the role of quickness source for your subgroup, and it can generate ~65% Fury Fury and ~12 Might Might.

Quickness Scrapper's real strength lies in Impact Savant, which allows it to tank without investing in extra survivability, maximising damage on encounters that would otherwise force the tank to gear more defensively.

Utility


Skill Variants

Function Gyro, Rocket Charge and Throw Mine provide enough finishers to maintain Quickness Quickness without any boon duration. Healing Turret and Blast Gyro provide some additional padding as well as some nice utility. This also allows you to use Function Gyro more reactively in case resses are needed.


Healing
Healing Turret provides a handy extra combo field and blast finisher. However, you should have enough quickness to manage without it so it could be replaced with:

  • A.E.D. for the damage reversal or CC.
  • Medic Gyro for more Superspeed Superspeed uptime or ~10% Protection Protection from Reconstruction Field.


Utility

  • For maximum damage, you can replace Blast Gyro with Shredder Gyro.
  • Bulwark Gyro could be used to replace either Grenade Kit or Blast Gyro if the groups needs Stability Stability or damage reduction. This is a significant DPS loss. Be aware that Bulwark Gyro can rapidly down you if your teammates are taking too much damage.
  • Purge Gyro could also be taken for a potent condi cleanse, but with the same caveats as above.


Elite

  • Sneak Gyro will provide Stealth Stealth to five targets, which can be very potent in the right situation. Avoid using it in general, however, as Stealth Stealth can interrupt players attacks and it interferes with deadeye rotations that rely on Stealth Stealthing only at the correct time.
  • Charr can bring Artillery Barrage. It deals better damage than Elite Mortar Kit on shorter fights, especially if it can be pre-cast before the boss is vulnerable.

Specializations


Trait Variants

  • Pinpoint Distribution if the group is lacking Might Might.
  • Explosive Temper should be taken if you're not using Grenade Kit, as there won't be anything to trigger it.
  • Mass Momentum allows you to provide Stability Stability to allies via Function Gyro, and would be less of a DPS loss than taking Bulwark Gyro.

Equipment Notes

  • This setup requires no boon duration, relying entirely on Kinetic Accelerators.
    • If you find yourself wanting more boon duration, you can switch one or more pieces to Diviner stats Diviner stats.
  • You could also switch the Sigil of Superior Sigil of Impact for a Sigil of Superior Sigil of Concentration or use food such as .
  • The Dragon stats Dragon stats pieces are a tiny dps increase, so you can run full Berserker stats Berserker stats if you prefer.

Utility


Usage

  • You generate Quickness Quickness by using a blast or leap finisher inside a combo field.
  • Use Function Gyro, Rocket Charge, Blast Gyro and Throw Mine off cooldown for their finishers.
    • Healing Turret Detonate Healing Turret can be used if there are any gaps in Quickness Quickness uptime.
  • You have enough boon duration that you can very slightly delay your blast skills if necessary. In particular you might want to use Function Gyro to revive someone, or delay Blast Gyro for a defiance bar. You shouldn't delay for too long though or your Quickness Quickness uptime will suffer!
  • If tanking, the sustain from Impact Savant depends on attacking, so don't slack on your DPS.
  • Hammer is an overloaded weapon in terms of utility: Electro-whirl reflects projectiles, Rocket Charge is a series of short evades and two leap finishers, Shock Shield is a channeled block, and Thunderclap is an AoE stun. Making the best use of all of them will greatly improve your effectiveness.
  • If you have doubts about whether there will be a combo field, you can use Poison Gas Shell from Elite Mortar Kit.
    • Always make sure there is a combo field down when using Rocket Charge as it is a very large portion of your Quickness Quickness generation.


Damage

  • Use Grenade Barrage off cooldown.
  • Most of your damage comes from Electro-whirl and Shrapnel Grenade. They have a very similar cooldown so you can "link" them together - every time you use Electro-whirl, jump into Grenade Kit and use Shrapnel Grenade.
  • Every third time you do this, you can also use Thunderclap.
  • Most of the rest of the time you fill with hammer autos.
  • See the Power DPS build for more details about structuring the rotation.

Strong DPS, can tank with minimal toughness, and perma superspeed is just nice to have. Currently the best power quickness support for fast groups in fractals.

I am giving this build 3 stars as of the EoD patch. Impact Savant was gutted, and Scrappers low dps and limited boon sharing can't really compete with the other options available.

While it doesn't quite beat Firebrand in terms of the DPS/Quick role, it's still quite good. I've been enjoying this myself a lot lately.
