    Introduction

    Hammer Spellbreaker is a DPS build that provides constant Crowd Control (CC) and consistent damage, with good self-sustain thanks to the Defense trait line.

    Build Fundamentals

    Hammer Spellbreaker gains a massive damage increase from Attacker's Insight, as disabling foes or removing boons grants 50 Power, Precision, and Ferocity per stack. Using Crowd Control abilities on Hammer increases your damage for the period of time you will be on Dagger/Axe.

    Build Specifics

    To gain additional stacks of Attacker's Insight, daze your enemies by using Aura Slicer and Breaching Strike to leap through the lightning field created by Winds of Disenchantment, or by using Full Counter.

    Thanks to Attacker's Insight, hitting enemies with Full Counter resets your Earthshaker or Breaching Strike, granting you extra opportunities for CC or damage, respectively.

    Crowd Control

    Alternatives

    If you plan on starting the encounter with Hammer instead of Dagger/Axe, take "To the Limit!" instead of Mending to build Adrenaline.

    Take Defiant Stance instead of Mending to absorb high-damage mechanics and prevent downstates on fights such as Sabir or Vale Guardian.

    Introduction

    Greatsword Spellbreaker is a DPS build that provides high amounts of burst damage and the option to provide small amounts of boons to your subgroup thanks to the Tactics trait line.

    Build Fundamentals

    Greatsword Spellbreaker gains a massive damage increase from Attacker's Insight, as disabling foes or removing boons grants 50 Power, Precision, and Ferocity per stack. Use Winds of Disenchantment at the beginning of the Greatsword Loop to increase damage while in Dagger/Axe.

    Build Specifics

    To gain additional stacks of Attacker's Insight, daze your enemies by using Aura Slicer and Breaching Strike to leap through the lightning field created by Winds of Disenchantment, or by using Full Counter.

    To gain extra burst damage without losing Crit Chance, gain 5 stacks of Attacker's Insight by leaping through the lightning field created by Winds of Disenchantment to cover the Precision lost by activating Signet of Fury.

    Feel free to move Whirlwind Attack and Rush earlier or later within the Greatsword Loop if restricted by encounter mechanics or positioning requirements.

    Crowd Control

    Alternatives

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