Raid DPS Benchmarks

Table of Contents


1. Disclaimer

2. Ranking


  • Tests were done on a small 4 million HP golem. Only exceptions are Staff Elementalist who did tests on Large Hitbox only and Scepter Guardian which was done on both Large and Small Hitbox

  • These tests are assuming a raid setting, i.e. you have Banners, Quickness, alacrity, druids buff etc. and running a comp that provides these buffs (5-5 with double Chronomancer)

  • We used the builds specified in the "Guide" column down below, these are the builds we use in raids aswell. We used EA, Spotter, Frost Spirit, Banners, and 3 GotL stacks for the "Realistic" attempts. Condi classes also used Sun Spirit and ranger pets used fury. Fully Buffed tried used every buff.

  • We use Alacrity in the "Realistic" tries because you can keep it up permanently with double mesmer.

  •  Numbers are with max Stat Infusions so if you want the adjusted value you can substract 2% to get a rough number without Infusions.

  •  Mesmer is just showing the rotation, not the actual DPS, because the "Realistic" buffs are too unrealistic for mesmer.

  • New Realistic Benchmarks are under Realistic. However Benckmarks under Realistic(-Alacrity) are still the same rotations and up to date.
