Using Paragon's energy management and critical hit capabilities, the P/D Nightfall Hybrid Spiker allows you to deal critical hits with a scythe, one of the deadliest weapons in Guild Wars.

Attributes and Skills

<pvxbig> [build name="Nightfall Hybrid Spiker" prof=parag/dervi leader=9+1+2 comman=9+2 scythe=12][reapers sweep][victorious sweep][eremites attack][go for the eyes][anthem of flame][aggressive refrain][remedy signet][signet of return][/build] </pvxbig>


  • Any max armor, Vigor/Vitae Runes if possible, Centurion Insignias as Aggressive Refrain should always be active.
  • Zealous Scythe for battles, have an energy set ready for emergency Aggressive Refrain.


  • Activate Aggressive Refrain just before entering battle.
  • After a few hits, activate "Go for the Eyes!", and immediately use Reaper's Sweep.
  • If the hit was critical, the damage will be outrageous. Follow up with Eremite's Attack as to not give your enemy a chance to heal.
  • When affected by weakness or blindness, use Remedy Signet.
  • When running particularly low on health, use Victorious Sweep.


  • Anti-shout skills.
  • Energy denial.
  • Unluckiness (80% chance to hit critical with Reaper's Sweep.)
  • Kiting.


Suggested variant:


  • I based this off of Build: P/W ParaThumper.
  • Myself only having Guild Wars: Nightfall, I've noticed no one has come up with an excellent mix of Paragon and Dervish - this is my attempt to create a build using those classes.
