Archeage Hexblade PVP Build & Guide

Archeage Hexblade PVP Build

The Archeage Hexblade PVP Build & Guide is a melee DPS class, which is based on Battlerage, Witchcraft, and Defense. This Archeage Hexblade PVP Build excels at mitigating damage and using crowd control (CC). By using weapon swapping, you will still be able to deal safe burst damage while your targets are CC’ed. Although susceptible to kiting the Archeage Hexblade is able to mitigate damage at range while gap closer cooldowns reset. The Archeage Hexblade PVP Build takes fights into late game, as they can ensure victory with mana efficiency and sustained DPS.

Swap out Frenzy for Battle Focus for an easier time verses melee. Then swap out Bondbreaker for Terrifying Roar for more DPS into CC’ed targets.

Archeage Hexblade PVP Build - Playstyle & Adapting to Weakness

General Tips
Always keep your Courageous Action buff on. It is on such a short cooldown there’s no reason not to always have it up. Purge yourself at the start for the magic resistance buff. Enervate is your longest range nuke, followed by Tiger Strike and Boastful Roar. Focal Concussion guarantees that your target stays still while you Charge it ensuring a knockdown on the Triple Slash. If they’re stealthed, spam Focal Concussion to try to hit them before they hit you.

Verses Melee
Your biggest problem is going to be getting knocked down into a huge combo. You can stop this by either popping Redoubt or by hitting them in mid air with a Focal Concussion. Against stealth you want to spam your Focal Concussion key to stop the usual Overwhelm opener. You can also stop Charge this way to avoid knockdown. Always face your target so you can block and parry them. By jumping or glider sliding you can drift the stun and root of Overwhelm and Charge if you get hit by them, forcing your opponent to walk towards you before they can hit you and follow up. Kite out their cooldowns (Frenzy/Redoubt/Battle Focus) by using Boastful Roar or Invincibility. Use Tiger Strike as often as possible because you never know when you’ll parry reset its cooldown. Use the Fear Burst Combo as soon as possible and try to Purge off Courageous Action if they have it.

Verses Archers
Your biggest problem here is getting kited to death and landing a successful knockdown on them. Try to save your gap closers if you’re already on the target since many archers have escapes like Dropback and Teleport. Since most archers will run with Auramancy they will be able to break your stun, try to force this out early so you can land a knockdown in your big combo. Bondbreaker the slows as soon as possible. Use Redoubt and Invincibility if you have no way to close the gap. Boastful Roar when you can. Use Focal Concussion before using Charge so you can reliably knock them down. Drop the Fear Burst Combo when you can.

Verses Healers
This is a mana and mitigation game. Spam Enervate as much as possible. Deal as much damage at the start as possible. Use Focal Concussion sparingly because it consumes a lot of mana. Try to save the Fear Burst Combo for when you can finish them off.

Verses Mages
This is your toughest match up. Use Gap Closer Knockdown Combo right away and Fear Burst Combo right after it at the very start. Against Reapers as soon as you see the Dropback, pop your Invincibility to stop the Firebolts from damaging you. If they use Summon Crows immediately Purge yourself or Invincibility for the duration of the debuff. Make sure to have Frenzy and Bondbreaker for an easier time. If they have Witchcraft you must Purge their Courageous Action off. Against mages who have Mana Force and Dahuta’s Breath you must save your gap closers because you don’t want to have to blow your Invincibility to wait for your gap closers to reset.
