Guide

The Power Reaper build, while not one of the strongest in terms of DPS, is a versatile build that can modify itself to suit a variety of scenarios without many issues.

With two main trait variants (Blood Magic for higher group sustain/CC and revival power; and Soul Reaping for a more powerful rotation and higher Vulnerability application) and multiple offensive skill options ( Pull, boon corruptions, Blind, Immobile, etc.) Power Reaper can modify itself to fit many given situations in fractals.

This build's weakness is its inability to be healed whilst in shroud, which can also affect your ability to maintain shroud for the rotation of the Soul Reaping variant, this can be offset by anticipating large attacks from bosses and sneaking in usage of 's skill or Greatsword's .

However, large amounts of self-produced Vulnerability, Quickness and Might will allow this build to perform well as a "solo carry" build that suffers less from underperforming teammates and heavily rewards a skilled user.

Details
Rotation

Your rotation falls into three main parts:

Greatsword

This is to be used essentially whenever you're not in

Pre 50% HP

  1. => => x 3
  2. Weapon Swap

Post 50% HP

  1. x 9
  2. Weapon Swap

Axe/Warhorn

Use this as part of your rotation, but the best time is to be using this as you are about to break a defiance bar (in tandem with the portion of your rotation)

  1. (seen below)
  2. Weapon Swap

Your aim is to use this when you have all of your persistent AoE abilities active (, , and )

  1. => => x 5 (or if you're going to drop below 50% life force)
  2. (to leave shroud)
Advanced Notes
  • By utilizing weapon stowing you can get extra damage out of your consecutive uses.
  • Always finish your auto-attack chains in both and Greatsword.
  • Utilize smart positioning for skills like and , as you gain bonus effects by hitting multiple targets (bonus life force, cooldown reduction for shroud from , etc.)
  • While you can use shroud as a way to mitigate large amounts of damage, it will result in a 5% dps loss until you can get your life force back up again, as well as locking you out of using shroud.
  • is a fantastic way to get around faster outside of using blink skills.
Opener

    • As the bar is broken immediately use , then weapon swap
