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.

- The developers have likened the Spellbreaker to a warrior/mesmer dual profession from Guild Wars 1: 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, specifically 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."
- 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.
