Best Chaos Glaivier Dungeon Build

The Glaivier was the first class added after the initial launch of Lost Ark. They have great offensive and defensive capabilities through the use of swapping between two weapons; a Spear and one Sword. We’re going to walk you through an interesting build we’ve come up with that makes clearing Chaos Dungeons even easier than you thought. This build will help both new and more experienced Glaivier players who want to speed up their Chaos Dungeon runs.

There are many builds you can build depending on how you want to play the class, however, the build we picked relies on a lesser-known engraving. It is often overlooked in other forms of content, but the Preemptive Strike Combat Engraving is one of the best choices to make in Chaos Dungeons. (A more detailed explanation can be found here). In addition, we have chosen to also include the Summit Class burning to further improve clearing time. The Control Engraving is also useful but doesn’t give quite the same versatility as red spear skills.

Skills to use in Chaos Dungeons as Glaivier

At first, wait until the majority of enemies have spawned, then keep moving so you don’t take too much damage. Once you see the enemies grouped together, take them all out with powerful smash abilities such as Chained blue dragon, Raging Dragon Strike, Windbreakand cut the wind. All of these skills should be able to one hit kill normal enemies. Use the remaining skills to clean up and generate more Identity Gauge. Once it’s full, switch to the red spear position and use red dragon horn, star leap, and Thrust of Destruction. Again, use the remaining skills to generate more Identity Gauge and switch back to Glaive stance skills and repeat.

In the next areaeliminate named enemies by rounding them up and use either Chained blue dragonWhere red dragon horn (depending on the position you are in). Try to kill 2 or 3 of them as that should be enough to reset all your cooldowns so they are ready for the next group of named enemies. Use the remaining skills to clear the rest of the normal enemies. Once more the named enemies appear, repeat the process.

For the type of challenge enemy at the end of this area, or use the red dragon horn or your Awakening Skill to ship them quickly.

Statistics Allocation

The attribution of statistics comes from accessories (necklace, earring and rings). It can be very expensive to have a different set of attachments for Chaos Dungeons, so you should choose these stats based on the class burn you have chosen to play.

  • For the Summit Class Burn, Stat priority should focus on Specialization first for increased damage when swapping weapons, followed by Speed Where critical.
  • For the Control Class Burn, Stat priority should focus on Speed first for cooldown reductions, followed by critical.
