Alacrity Willbender is a very niche provider of Alacrity, mainly due to the fact that it provides almost no other boons, aside from Regeneration and a low uptime of Fury. Alacrity Willbender is able to play either a Condition Damage or Power variant that means it can fit into many different comps flexibly despite not offering much apart from damage and the usual amount of utility that a Guardian can bring.

Additionally the Power Alacrity Willbender build runs the Virtues Trait Line which means that the build is reliant upon both Aegis and , further decreasing the narrow avenue of its use. Despite this very specialized set of use conditions Power Alacrity Willbender is able to offer much higher damage than any other Alacrity providing Power builds.

The Condi Alacrity Willbender build listed here has 1212 Toughness, make sure this does not interfere with any tanking in your squad.

Note: The required Boon Duration of Alacrity Willbender varies greatly depending on encounter. Both builds listed here run 14% Boon Duration, if you find your Alacrity uptime lacking you should to swap your utility for one of the following:

  • For Condi Alacrity Willbender you should swap for .
  • For Power Alacrity Willbender you should swap for .

Rotation

After the Opening you alternate between the Greatsword Loop and the Sword Loop, every third Sword Loop you will need to use the Alternative Sword Loop instead as otherwise your will be out of sync.

Make sure to let the active buff of both and last their full durations as it will mean that you will have a long duration of Alacrity on allies and a long duration of on yourself!

Careful use of is very important as it is your main source of self , ideally you should use it to replace in your rotation if you know an attack that will remove is coming up. You can also use it if you have lost for any other reason.

You may not want to precast so that you can use it to regain later.
