Power Quickness Scrapper (aka “Qrapper”) is not only a great source of Quickness and DPS, but it provides multitudes of utility and CC with skills such as Elite Mortar Kit, Thunderclap, Medic Gyro, and more. In addition, due to the trait Impact Savant, as long as you are doing damage to something you will almost NEVER die!

Build fundamentals

Power Quickness Scrapper generates quickness for your subgroup via Superspeed and Kinetic Accelerators combined with Gyroscopic Acceleration.

Your main sources of Superspeed generation for quickness are Medic Gyro, Shredder Gyro, Blast Gyro, Bypass Coating, and Function Gyro which you want to use off-cooldown when possible. Make sure to be in combat before Blast Gyro and Medic Gyro finish casting when starting an encounter. If you generate quickness/superspeed on your allies using these skills before entering combat, those boons will be removed!

While using your Superspeed generating skills in a fight, you also want to be doing as much damage as possible. On hammer, your main damaging combo is Thunderclap then Electro-whirl and Shredder Gyro. Make sure you are standing within your lightning field while using the other two skills to combo finish inside it.

As per usual, you’ll want to finish your Auto-attack chain between other skills.

When you are out of burst options for hammer, you can either fill using your auto-attack chain or swap to Grenade Kit. When using a grenade kit, your priority should be to cast Shrapnel Grenade off CD, follow up with all or a combination of the rest of your kit skills, then swap back to hammer for continuing the Auto-attack chain. Your toolbelt skill for grenade kit, Grenade Barrage, should be used off-cooldown as well for more damage.

CC (Crowd Control)

Alternatives

  • Sneak Gyro if your squad has no thieves or mirages, and you need Stealth, using it for additional Quickness is rarely a good choice because applying Stealth will make targets of it stop auto-attacking, if your group is not doing their rotation, you may negatively influence overall dps.
  • Pinpoint Distribution over No Scope if your subgroup is filled with condition DPS builds and you want to help their DPS numbers a bit. This comes at a cost of personal DPS.
