The Power Bladesworn is a strong build for Warrior in fractals. It has more initial burst than Power Berserker thanks to
, but loses sustained damage in favor of short damage spikes. Along with this Power Bladesworn provides a lot of boon support to a party, sharing Might and Quickness from traits along with optional utility skills like
which can carry a party with low boon uptime by providing 12 stacks of Might (becomes 20 stacks, taking into account Might from traits) and a high Fury uptime.
The Power Bladesworn is one of the harder builds to play in fractals dues to its quick rotation, relying on maintaining damage modifiers and your highest damaging skill locking you in place, requiring good positioning during fights. Furthermore, the build benefits from damage modifying sigils like
