Legendary Bandit Executioner

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Legendary Bandit Executioner is a bandit that has a chance to show up after defeating one of the bandit leaders needed for Long Arm of the Light, with the chance increasing if a player nearby has a Bandit Death Mark in their inventory. The Executioner wields a greatsword, and has medium damage weapon skills; however, Sword of Vengeance is quite powerful and can be cast on multiple targets in quick succession. The Executioner is accompanied by several Veteran Bandit Casters, who provide healing, Might.png Might, and Regeneration.png Regeneration to the Executioner. The Executioner moves at walking speed, becoming vulnerable to crowd control only while attempting to finish downed players.

  • Wields a White Mantle Sunderer and wears Falconer's armor.
  • Players can stop the Executioner from finishing other downed players by reviving them or using crowd control skills to break the boss's Defiance Bar during this period.
  • Several of the Executioner's skills can instantly down players with low armor or health, especially light armor users or low level characters.
