Lost Ark Scrapper Build – Best Skills for PvE and PvP

A guide on basic Scrapper skill builds in Lost Ark.

Scrapper Undefeated Dragon King

A Scrapper build in Lost Ark is usually balanced between having the same number of stamina skills and shock skills. It has another layer of combat mechanic where Scrappers use light and quick stamina skills first which would charge up shock energy, then follow it up with heavy damaging shock skills which in turn charges stamina energy.

The cyclic ebb and flow between stamina and shock skills can be hard to learn at first or can be way too rigid of a pattern without any space for improvisation, but when the right skills are mastered and chained into one another, it can be a very rewarding experience and quite a challenging cycle to find an opening to counter if you are on the butt end of a Scrapper’s fist.

In this guide, we’ll look into the possible Scrapper builds that you can try depending on your type of gameplay. We will mainly focus on the skills build with max level 60 and assuming all quests that provide extra skill points are completed (380-414 skill points). With the latest updates and the raised level caps, certain skills can be leveled up to 11 and 12, but we will look into those on a separate guide.

Tips for Scrapper PvE:

  • Going for a crit build will make Roundup Sweep your bread and butter damage dealer while waiting for the other skills to cool down. Make sure to target a to of enemies with this skill for a higher chance of proccing the skill reset.
  • Cycle between Fierce Tiger Strike or Charging Blow per skill chain as these two skills grant buffs that do not stack.
  • Supernova is a massive attack that works best if dealt against bosses.
  • When going through a Chaos Dungeon, you will have cooldown refresh or cooldown reduction just by killing bosses or destroying rift cores, so the cooldown on your shock skills won’t be as noticeable.

Tips for Scrapper Raid:

  • Death Rattle and Supernova will be the main damage dealers against raid bosses. Make sure to engage first with either a Crushing Smite or a Fierce Tiger Strike to get the damage debuff on the boss.
  • Reserve Death Rattle until you have a full shock bar to maximize the damage output coming from Shock Explosion.
  • Always try to reposition at the back of the boss to take advantage of the increased crit rate. This will also increase your chances of dealing multiple Roundup Sweeps during a window.
  • Since you will have little to no defensive skills as a Scrapper, it’s best to go for the Undefeated Dragon King awakening sill so that it can be cast from afar.
