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.


Rage Hammer: Accessories, Card Sets, Engravings and Gearsets

There's only one way to gear Rage Hammer Icon Rage Hammer Destroyer, due to the fact every single skill we have takes advantage of head attacks, and that's with the Entropy Icon Earth's Entropy gear set. From that point, there's two ways to handle your substats. Both options focus majorly on Crit, but the choice of Specialization 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.


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.



Rage Hammer Icon Rage Hammer doesn't have much of a wide range of selection when it comes to Engravings, so the following choices are pretty much set in stone.

Engraving Priority Description
Rage Hammer Icon Rage Hammer High This is a must take. The class Engraving boosts our Crit Rate and Crit Damage, the two modifiers that significantly increase our burst damage.
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.
Super Charge Icon Super Charge High This affects the majority of our burst damage by enhancing Perfect Swing Icon Perfect Swing, Earth Eater Icon Earth Eater, and Full Swing Icon Full Swing.
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 Master Brawler Icon Master Brawler, but it should only be done as a last resort. Head positionals are a focus with this class no matter what, and adding a negative impact Engraving in it's place doesn't make much sense.
Adrenaline Icon Adrenaline / 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 Crit in order to reach maximum potential on our Gravity Release skills. Specialization or Swiftness can be taken depending on comfort on certain items, prioritizing Specialization for a higher damage ceiling.
