    Introduction

    Power Alacrity Bladesworn is a support DPS build that provides permanent Alacrity and some supplementary Might. The build lacks in Crowd Control (CC) but offers extremely high burst DPS for a support role.

    Build Fundamentals

    Power Alacrity Bladesworn builds Flow by being in combat and using Flow Stabilizer, which is used to enter Dragon Trigger. DT then converts Flow into charges. Once you gain 10 charges, use Dragon Slash - Force.

    Using any Ammo skills increases damage for the next Dragon Trigger due to the trait Fierce as Fire.

    Daring Dragon shares Alacrity in an area around you whenever you use Dragon Slash - Force.

    Build Specifics

    The build gains a massive damage increase from Overcharged Cartridges, buffing the damage of Dragon Slash - Force, Dragon's Roar, and Gunsaber skills. Overcharged Cartridges should always be activated before using Dragon's Roar and entering Dragon Trigger.

    Use Flicker Step during Dragon Trigger to activate the buff from Relic of Peitha before using Dragon Slash - Force.

    After the Precast, use Flow Stabilizer sparingly to maintain Flow. Try not to overflow.

    Use "To the Limit!" for backup Flow.

    Use Dragonspike Mine after a Dragon Slash - Force to reset Dragon Trigger.

    Dragon Trigger skills 4 and 5 (Triggerguard and  Flicker Step) can be used to block or move away from attacks to guarantee that you never get interrupted while charging Dragon Trigger.

    Use Tactical Reload off-cooldown before Dragon Trigger to charge it more quickly.
