The broken weapons of the Sunspears have become daggers in the hands of their descendants, which they use to strike at the very fabric of magic and strip it from their foes. They meditate to see past their enemies' defenses, and they use their adrenaline to counter attacks.

Notes[edit]

  • Players can learn more about this specialization by going to Kanuz Cache in the Desert Highlands and talking to Tamela Okar.
  • Their entire top line traits focus on removing enemy boons. The middle line is more a counter line while the last line is more a catch all line designed for slippery opponents like thieves and mesmers who try to run away.

Trivia[edit]

  • As opposed to the Berserker, Spellbreaker is a more calm and collected theme. It is more of a blademaster that has studied their arts all their life. It is a warrior/mesmer dual profession from Guild Wars 1. A mesmer through the lens of a warrior. How a warrior would do as mesmer. Instead of creating illusions to deceive other people, the warrior is able to see through deception.
  • Some of the themes for Spellbreaker came from Guild Wars: Nightfall skills - Magehunter Strike and Magehunter Smash.
  • The developers added double daggers to Spellbreaker because "...warrior is a weapon master and one dagger was just not enough, and allows to pull off some combos."[1]
  • Spellbreaker has many references to Guild Wars 1's Ritualist and Dervish in skills such as Featherfoot Grace, Sight beyond Sight, and Winds of Disenchantment.
