3v3 Arena Gunlancer Build Guide for PvP

Build

required skill points: 340

Gunlancer is an incredible source of support and enemy disruption in PvP. Since he is tanky and can't be killed, he is a constant thorn in the enemy's side. Surprisingly, he can also perform a lot of burst catching opponents off guard.

Although not good for gap closing, his unique spacebar Backstep proves useful for dodging attacks and becoming immune to crowd control effect. It's short cooldown, allows you to thread the needle on multiple occasions.

How to play

Gunlancers excel by supporting their team, so stick with them and prevent enemies from properly engaging using your peeling tools like Dash Upper FireDash Upper Fire, Hook ChainHook Chain, and Shield ChargeShield Charge.

You are looking for two critical things in fights:

  • An opening to grab someone with your Hook ChainHook Chain and combo them along with potentially your teammates.
  • Your teammates status so you can mitigate damage with Nellasia's EnergyNellasia's Energy or Guardian's ProtectionGuardian's Protection

Lastly, always remember to use your Backstep to dodge attacks and avoid crowd controls and slows.

Combos

You have three simple but effective combos to master:

  1. Hook ChainHook Chain into BashBash into Surge CannonSurge Cannon or Gunlance ShotGunlance Shot. Make sure to activate Defensive Stance to avoid being interrupted during the charge up.
  2. Lift opponents up with Shield ChargeShield Charge and stun them on the way down with BashBash. Finish with any damage skill available to you.
  3. Lift opponents up with Shield ChargeShield Charge but skip the bash stun and use Gunlance ShotGunlance Shot as an air juggle.

Swiftness allows you to get as much abilities off as possible, which is key as a disrupter/supporter. It also gives you the mobility you need to be effective.

Domination allows your burst combo to be much more effective taking advantage of all your CC.

Crit is there for lucky procs that swing the match.
