Gravity Training Destroyer Gearing Guide for Lost Ark

Last updated on Dec 19, 2022 at 12:00 by Lavender 3 comments

Equipped with a gigantic gravity hammer, Destroyer obliterates all in it's path. The king of stagger, Destroyer abuses encounters through personal shields and a taunt. This class comes with two different playstyles, Gravity Training and Rage Hammer.


Gravity Training: Accessories, Card Sets, Engravings and Gearsets

There's only one way to gear Gravity Training Icon Gravity Training Destroyer, due to the fact every single skill we have takes advantage of head attacks, and that's with the Earth's Entropy gear set. From that point, there's two ways to handle your substats. Both options focus majorly on Specialization, but the choice of Crit or Swiftness is up to the player and their level of comfort on the class and within encounters. A faster build may be easier to handle mechanics with. Some players opt to play this Engraving with a focus on Swiftness, and it should be noted that it's a massive loss, and a waste of Pheons.


Card Sets

Card sets for Destroyer are very straight forward. If you have access to it, Light of Salvation Icon Light of Salvation is the set to equip for Legion raids affected by Light-type damage. For any other content, or if Light of Salvation Icon Light of Salvation is unavailable, Lostwind Cliff Icon Lostwind Cliff is optimal for the increased Crit rate. If you're new to the game, feel free to equip any card set you have access to that increases survivability, such as Field Boss II Icon Field Boss II.



Gravity Training Icon Gravity Training doesn't have much wiggle room as far as Engravings go, taking from the list below:

Engraving Priority Description
Gravity Training Icon Gravity Training High This is a must take. It's what gives the class it's playstyle, providing Activate Hypergravity Icon Hypergravity a power boost.
Grudge Icon Grudge High A staple in damage builds. Every DPS class in this game takes it, Destroyer being no different. The consistent shielding our skills provide us nullifies most of the downside from this Grudge as well.
Master Brawler Icon Master Brawler High With every action we have, including the autos during Activate Hypergravity Icon Hypergravity, having a head attack modifier, Master Brawler is an easy pick.
Spirit Absorption Icon Spirit Absorption High Not only does Spirit Absorption provide us some much needed mobility, it also increases the amount of autos we get off during Activate Hypergravity Icon Hypergravity. This is not just a quality of life Engraving for Destroyer, it's a DPS increase.
Barricade Icon Barricade High Gravity Release skills and Activate Hypergravity Icon Hypergravity all apply a meaty shield to Destroyer upon use, this is free damage every time you enter burst.
Cursed Doll Icon Cursed Doll Low This Engraving can be swapped out for Barricade Icon Barricade, but why would you? Similar DPS increase, but with a downside.
Rage Hammer Icon Rage Hammer / Ether Enhancement Icon Ether Predator Level 1 only Both of these options are only if you're capable of running 5x3 + 1. Ignore entirely if not.


Starting in Legendary gear, you'll want the Preordained Diligence Icon Preordained Diligence set from Argos to give you additional Critical Rate. At this point in the game, you can mostly ignore the set from Valtan normal mode and immediately start transitioning into the Entropy Icon Earth's Entropy set. This provides Crit Damage, as well as increasing your head attack damage by a substantial amount.


Accesories and Stat Distribution

Destroyer prioritizes Specialization in order to create a smooth looping rotation of four Gravity release skills into Activate Hypergravity Icon Hypergravity. Crit or Swiftness can be taken depending on comfort on anything with a secondary stat.
