    Utility Skills



    Power Bladesworn is a high burst DPS build with large amounts of cleave for dealing with adds and excels in short phases. The build requires good knowledge of positioning in encounters because you cannot move during Dragon Trigger.

    Build Fundamentals

    Power 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.

    Build Specifics

    The build gains a massive damage increase from Overcharged Cartridges. This utility buffs 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 Cyclone Trigger before or after Dragonspike Mine to maintain Relic of the Thief stacks. If Cyclone Trigger is unavailable, use Blooming Fire instead.

    After the Precast, use Flow Stabilizer off-cooldown to generate Flow.

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

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

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

    Crowd Control





    Superior Sigil of Accuracy can be changed to Superior Sigil of Impact or a Slaying Sigil for encounters where this increases DPS.
    To do this, make the following adjustments to your gear:
