Due to vacation and summer season, our build guides might not be fully updated yet to reflect the recent balance patch. Visit our Discord server for immediate support.

Overview

The Banner Warrior is the superior build for warriors in fractals.

Besides providing the group with strong unique damage buffs (

Banner of Strength,
Banner of Discipline
and
Empower Allies
) and having excellent defiance bar damage with the Mace/Mace set, the build also has a relatively high burst damage potential on both small and large hitboxes for a support role.

If enemy boons are present, the Spellbreaker specialization can be taken to reliably remove them with

Breaching Strike and
Dispelling Force
. Another advantage of this variation is the strong on-demand projectile destruction with
Winds of Disenchantment
.

Furthermore, the build is able to use damage modifying sigils like

Superior Sigil of Impact as well as slaying potions such as
Powerful Potion of Slaying Scarlet's Armies
. As a support warrior, your focus is first and foremost providing the group with aforementioned damage buffs and removing boons, secondly breaking the defiance bar while following your optimized damage rotation.

Equipment (150 AR and

Spotter)

Note: Without

Spotter from a Druid you have to run more Assassin's pieces to reach 100% critical chance. It is highly recommended to aim higher than the minimum required Agony Resistance (e.g.
Anguished Tear of Alba
, 18x
Mighty +9 Agony Infusion
and Agony Impedance as well as Mist Attunement). To determine the optimal gear for your personal Agony Resistance please use our gear optimizer.
