The Power Sword Weaver is currently one of the strongest DPS builds for fractals.

It has quick burst damage and doesn't rely as much on pre-casting as Power Tempest. Since you don't have long casting times and the rotation loops fluently, it is fun to play as long as there are no Instabilities that discourage melee interactions.

Aside from Vulnerability, an additional crowd control skill with and high DPS, the Power Sword Weaver unfortunately doesn't provide much utilities. Additionally, the missing Arcane traits such as make you inherently squishy.

The build benefits heavily from slaying potions and sigils such as and .

Situational Skills

A stronger healing alternative if Might uptime is good.
Another alternative healing skill affecting allies close to the target you strike.
Offensive
Use this skill instead of if you need extra cleave damage at the cost of some target dps. Also useful to generate Might with a fire field.

You take this skill instead of if you play with groups that have low dps. is worth it with big dps and short phases. Precast where possible for dps boost.
Faster burst than on large hitboxes with the bonus of being semi-ranged.
Defensive
Provides three blocks for things like the console in Underground Facility Fractal.
Another defensive utility skill granting Protection and Stability.
Strong defence against pulsing damage like the Heat Room in Thaumanova Reactor Fractal.
Utility
A teleport with a range of 900 units. Very important skill for certain skips, especially in combination with , useful in fractals like Cliffside Fractal, Aetherblade Fractal and Underground Facility Fractal.
Situational Traits

With low group DPS and long phases this might pull ahead of .
If you can't profit from (e.g. Artsariiv).
Useful for skipping with Superspeed, especially in combination with or .
