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 while it can generate some Protection Protection with it offers no other boons. This means that unlike firebrand, it does not provide Fury Fury to its subgroup, neither can it provide Aegis Aegis or pulls for adds.


Quickness Scrapper's real strength lies in , which allows it to tank without investing in extra survivability, maximising damage on encounters that would otherwise force the tank to gear more defensively. Further, the majority of its Quickness Quickness is applied in a 360 radius rather than the 240 radius of some chronomancer builds, or the cone of firebrand. This makes it more reliable in groups that stack poorly, but also means that it cannot fulfil kiting roles.

Skill Variants

Utility

  • could be used to replace either or if the groups needs Stability Stability or damage reduction. This is a significant DPS loss whichever skill is replaced; is a bigger DPS loss, but will allow you to benefit from the extra Quickness Quickness generation if it is otherwise lacking. Be aware that can rapidly down you if your teammates are taking too much damage.
  • could also be taken for a potent condi cleanse, but with the same caveats as above.


Elite

  • 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.

Usage

  • Use , , , and off cooldown for Quickness Quickness.
  • Use off cooldown for Protection Protection.
  • You have enough boon duration that you can very slightly delay your gyro skills if necessary. In particular you might want to use to revive someone, or delay for a defiance bar or to avoid knocking adds away. You shouldn't delay for more than a few seconds though or your Quickness Quickness uptime will suffer!
  • If tanking, the sustain from depends on attacking, so don't slack on your DPS.
  • Hammer is an overloaded weapon in terms of utility: reflects projectiles, is a series of short evades, is a channeled block, and is an AoE stun. Making the best use of all of them will greatly improve your effectiveness.


Damage

  • Use off cooldown.
  • Most of your damage comes from and . They have a very similar cooldown so you can "link" them together - every time you use , jump into and use .
  • Every third time you do this, you can also use .
  • Most of the rest of the time you fill with hammer autos.

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.
