Glaivier Control Build Raid Guide

control glaivier raid build guide

The Glaivier Control Build for Raids requires much less finesse than the Pinnacle Build, as you can stay in the Blue Flurry Stance the whole time. Using the Control Build will disable the Flurry Stance, creating a much easier rotation to manage.

In this guide we will go over the stats you want to prioritize, the skills and tripods to choose, engravings, and rotation.

Control Glaivier Raid Build Skills and Tripods

In the Control build, you will have only one stance to utilize: the Blue Flurry Stance. Before we get into the specifics of your rotation, let’s take a look at our recommended Skill Build at various skill point thresholds. We have included a bare-minimum 252 SP level, as well as a moderate 340 SP level. After this, feel free to add points into which skills feel the strongest for you.

Skill Choice Reasoning

Here we will explain from top to bottom of the chart above, why each skill is chosen.

  • Chain Slash brings more mobility to your build. In this build you want to be as mobile as possible, and if you have already used your spacebar dash, this skill can help you get where you need to go.
  • Flash Kick is another tool for that mobility you want in this build. You can use this for closing gaps and getting closer to the boss quickly.
  • Vault is your only counter skill available. Using this skill will counter the boss’s attack.
  • Half Moon Slash is one of your main damage moves. It outputs great damage while also providing Stagger AND Destruction. If there are any big stagger checks or destruction mechanics, make sure to try to time this skill to be usable at that time.
  • Raging Dragon Slash is your other main damage skill from the Blue Flurry Stance. This provides Mid-high stagger so it is an excellent utility to use constantly along with its damage.
  • Wheel of Blades is strategically chosen as a Judgement rune. Use this skill right after you use your Half Moon Slash. If your Half Moon Slash has Conviction on it, Judgement will trigger right away once you use Wheel of Blades right after.
  • Stampeding Slash is another mobility skill to gap close, while also dealing damage.
  • Shackling Blue Dragon is a great choice to help the whole party. It will apply a debuff on the boss to it’s Crit Resistance. This is a great tool for big damage windows, and it also provides destruction with its Weak Point Lv. 1

Stat Priority

Control Build Glaiviers should focus on obtaining as much Swiftness as possible. All of your stats should be focused on obtaining Swiftness. Since your necklace has a second stat, choose Crit as your secondary.

Engravings Priority

The engravings in this list are in order of priority. You should try your best to get to level 3 of each of these in order of the list.

  1. Control Class Engraving will increase the damage of all of your Flurry Stance skills. This should be your number 1 priority.
  2. Ambush Master is also key as you will be lining up as many skills as you can behind the boss. This will amplify your back attacks.
  3. Adrenaline allows you to gain Crit Rate, since all of your stats are focused on obtaining Swiftness.
  4. Raid Captain, another excellent choice as you will be building Swiftness and therefore movement speed as high as possible.

Other options for more advanced players can be Grudge and Cursed Doll. Both of these engravings have severe setbacks and would only ever be used at Level 3. We do not recommend these unless you are extremely confident in your abilities to never get hit by a boss.

Skill Rotation of Control Glaivier

Luckily, the rotation of a Control Glaivier is quite open to how you want to play it. For the most part, you can use the skills in whichever order you’d like, but here are a few things to keep track of:

  • In Blue Flurry Stance, always use Wheel of Blades right after you use Half Moon Slash, if you have the Judgement and Conviction runes applied as suggested.
  • Use Chain Slash whenever it is off cooldown
