Looking for the best Lost Ark Scrapper builds? Here are all of the skills you’ll need to dominate PvE and PvP battles as the Martial Artist.

When it comes to DPS classes in Lost Ark, it’s safe to say players have plenty of choice with each of the specializations offering completely different abilities and playstyles.

As a result, it can be difficult to choose which class suits you best. However, if you’re a fan of hand-to-hand combat but still want a character that hits extremely hard and deals hefty burst damage, it may be time for you to create a Scrapper.

Equipped with two huge gauntlets that can take out multiple enemies at once, the Scrapper is the perfect class for players who aren’t afraid to dive into a skirmish head first.

Of course, in order to get the most out of the Scrapper, you’ll need to be familiar with the best PVE and PVP builds, and luckily, we’ve got you covered.

Striker, Wardancer, Scrapper, & Soulfist

While the Striker, Wardancer, Scrapper, and Soulfist all fall under the banner of the Martial Artist class, they each offer different playstyles that you need to be familiar with.

For starters, the Striker is the most traditional Martial Artist class, using their series of fast attacks and aerial combos to take out any enemies in their path.

Interweaving martial arts with elemental magic, the Wardancer still takes on enemies at close range but empowers their blows with powerful magic. The Soulfist is similar but can attack from long-range and close the distance on their opponents, channeling special energy called Adamance.

Finally, the Scrapper uses two huge gauntlets and hits hard at close-range. With a strong combination of attack, defense, mobility, and lasting power, they have the tools for any encounter that comes their way.

Best Scrapper PvE build

When it comes to PvE on the Scrapper, it’s all about maximizing damage but also having the survivability to tank hits from bosses and multiple enemies just in case. As you’re in melee range a lot of time, it’s also important that you have enough mobility to dip in and out of combat.

Best Scrapper PvP build

Similar to a PvE Scrapper build, the name of the game in PvP will always be dealing damage, but the PvP build puts more of a focus on AoE damage to deal with multiple enemies attempting to surround your position.

So, in order to maximize your PVP strength, here are all the skills you’ll need:

Skill Skill Level (/10) Rune I  II III
Battering Fists 7 Righteous Pillage Single Strike N/A

Mixed PvEvP build

For some, switching builds constantly when taking part in both PvE and PvP is a chore they don’t want to worry about, so what build do you run if you want the best of both worlds on the Scrapper?

Our recommendations for a mixed Scrapper build are:

Skill Skill Level (/10) Rune I  II III
Chain Destruction Fist 10 Awaken Tenacity Shaking Ground
