Overview

Variant of Warrior - Power Bannerslave. This build deals less damage than its core warrior counterpart, but provides extra utility through boonstrip and Winds of Disenchantment.png Winds of Disenchantment, useful for stripping boons in fractals with the No Pain, No Gain instability.
If no boonstrip is needed consider running Warrior - Power Bannerslave instead.
This guide is focused on fractals. For the raid version see Spellbreaker - Power Boonstrip Bannerslave.

Kick (warrior utility).png Kick is the default choice for the flexible utility slot but it can be replaced in certain circumstances.
  • Winds of Disenchantment.png Winds of Disenchantment is sometimes useful for cheesing mechanics or stripping a lot of boons at once. Note that you will lose a lot of CC from not having Rampage.png Rampage so make sure your fractal party accounts for this.

Usage

You want to maintain the maximum possible stacks of 24px Attacker's Insight and Berserker's Power.png Berserker's Power while in combat, and have the buff from Peak Performance.png Peak Performance active while you are casting your primary DPS skills, Whirling Axe.png Whirling Axe and Hundred Blades.png Hundred Blades. With all the various weapon sets you should be weapon swapping frequently to utilize the high-damage skills on each weapon set. The only skills that are not DPS increases over auto-attacking are Rush.png Rush, 24px Aura Slicer and Bladestorm.png Bladestorm, so the rest of your weapon skills can be cast off cooldown.

For Fractals i strongly recommend Discipline over Tactics, the dps and QoL gain should easily outperform Empower Allies, and the assassin gear shouldn't be needed depending on your AR/party comp.

Weapon choice is debatable as well, i personally use A/A + Dagger for good dps and quick boonstrip, and CC with rock/plank/metal rod.

Also the guide takes Greatsword for some reason yet doesn't take the greatsword trait on Strength?
