Guild Wars 2 developer ‘Skill-Combo’ favorites

Healing Spring + Unload

  • Ranger, Thief

“The skill Unload is one of the best ways to put out a ton of damaging projectiles, but when you combine it with a ranger’s Healing Spring, you get a completely different effect. A ranger creates a Water Field with his Healing Spring skill, which a thief can then Unload through. These healing projectiles grants an area-of-effect heal to any allies that are attacking the thief’s target. This healing doesn’t apply to bad guys. This combo is one of the best ways to add some healing to an ally who is deep in hand to hand combat.”

-Matt Pennebaker, Game Designer

Chaos Storm + Rapid Fire

  • Mesmer, Ranger

“When a mesmer fires off Chaos Storm it grants random boons on allies and random conditions to any enemy within the effect area. You ranger ally inside the Chaos Storm can fire through the field, applying Confusion to each enemy he hits. Chaos!”

-Jonathan Sharp, System Designer

Lava Font + Leaping Attack 

  • Elementalist, Mesmer/Warrior

“Here’s how this one works. An elementalist triggers a Lava Font near an opponent. Then, your buddy the sword-wielding mesmer or warrior can leap into the Lava Font’s area of effect, delivering additional burning damage to the enemy.”

-Jon Peters, Game Designer

Frozen Ground + Eruption

  • Elementalist

“All you need is one elementalist for my favorite protective combo. Cast Eruption first, then attune to water and cast Frozen Ground. When the Eruption Bursts, damaging your foes, an Ice Field spreads over the area to apply a protective Frost Aura to you and your allies. I wish I could do this in real life on hot days.”

-Karl McLain, QA Tester

Super Elixir + Illusionary Duelist

  • Engineer, Mesmer

“We call this getting Bearced! An engineer with Elixir Gun fires a ground targeted Super Elixir creating a Light Field. Then a mesmer with a pistol can summon an Illusionary Duelist to fire projectiles through the field, which will remove conditions from allies near the target.”

-Tyler Bearce, QA Tester
