Artillerist PvE Build

The Artilerist relies on generating gauge in order to enter his different firepower stages. Every firepower increases the damage done by the Artillerist by 10% up to a maximum of 30% in his final stage that lasts for 20 seconds. During these 20 seconds you want to do as much damage as possible and uitlize your kit to it’s full extend. Filling up your completely also allows you to enter your bombardment mode where you can use your siege turret and do additional massive damage. Once your 20 seconds are over you enter your cooldown period and want to generate gauge as fast as possible to re-enter your burst window.

Desired Stats

The Artillerist run Swiftness and Crit.

Ultimate

We chose to use the Homing Rockets Ultimate as it generates gauge for every Rocket that hits the target, therefore helping us enter our burst window much faster.

Class Engravings

Sadly the Artillerist has no choice when it comes to class engravings. The only viable choice is the Firepower Enhaced Siege engraving, increasing our critical hit chance up to 35% depending on our Firepower Stage. On top of that, it reduces any incoming damage by 30%.

Skilltree

For our skilltree we want to use the skills as mentioned above. You can replace Enhanced shell with any other skill that applies the Destroy Armour debuff, this is up to your preference. For the turrets, you can only chose the Destroy Armour debuff instead of duration if you have trouble keeping up the debuff with enhanced Shell.

Viable Engravings

Must haves:

  • Firepower Enhancement
  • Grudge
  • Sharp Blunt


Additional good choices:

  • Cursed Doll
  • Adrenaline
  • Massacre


Additional good choices:

  • Steady State
  • Barricade
  • Spirit Absorption

Basic Rotation

Your goal is to enter Firepower Stage 3 as fast as possible, this rotation is a guideline on how to utilize your skills the best way.

Summon Turret > Flamethrower -> Enter Firepower Stage 1

Homing Missile > Airstrike > Multiple Rocket Launcher -> Enter Firepower Stage 2

Enhanced Shell > Summon Turret > Flamethrower -> Enter Firepower Stage 3

Stage 3 Firepower (20 seconds)

Homing Missile > Airstrike > Siege Mode: Energy Beam + Howitzer > Multiple Rocket Launcher > Homing Missile > Aistrike More if you can fit in more!

Cooldown phase, restart over.
