General Information

This page outlines the three primary trait setups used on the Staff Tempest Build for Guild Wars 2. Open up each Trait variant to see where its effective and why.

Each variant shares the same Fire and Tempest traits

– Use this trait variation if the encounter applies crowd control to you or your team.

These traits are Meta for Gorseval, Slothasor, Deimos, and Keep Construct. It is particularly strong on Keep Construct and Gorseval because you can make use of .

– Use this trait variation if the boss’ breakbar can’t be damaged, or it doesn’t get stunned when the breakbar is broken.

These traits are Meta for Vale Guardian, Gorseval, Slothasor, Samarog, and Deimos. The shorter Attunement cooldowns really help for the shorter Burst phases of these bosses. Also the extra Lava Font helps increase your damage on the smaller hitboxes of Vale Guardian and Deimos.

– Use this trait variation if someone else in your squad is giving you permanent vigor.

These traits are Meta for Xera. The good cleave and higher damage on small hitbox makes it very effective at dealing with Xera’s adds and shards while still having good single target DPS. Make sure you swap out for as it is necessary for the rotation.
