Looking for the best Lost Ark Destroyer builds? Here are all of the skills you’ll need to dominate PvE and PvP battles as the powerful hammer-wielding Warrior.

While some Warriors execute their enemies with a two-handed greatsword, others prefer the devastating blows of a giant hammer and luckily, the Destroyer is equipped with exactly that.

Capable of bending gravity to their will and pulling enemies into destructive attacks that inflict stagger damage, the Destroyer is the perfect class for those who aren’t afraid to get into the thick of the action.

As the Destroyer has only just arrived in Arkesia with the May 19 update, it can be hard to know which builds get the most out of the class. Well, to help you out, we’ve put together the best builds and engravings for the Destroyer in Lost Ark for PvP and PvE.

Gunlancer, Berserker, Paladin, or Destroyer

Each of the advanced Warrior classes has its specific role, with the Berserker outputting huge damage, the Paladin acting as a healer, and the Gunlancer sponging attacks as the primary tank.

When it comes to the Destroyer, the class acts as a hybrid tank and damage dealer, giving you the opportunity to take on a bruiser playstyle.

Although your movement will be relatively slow when moving across the battlefield, the hammer-wielding warrior is capable of pulling and pushing enemies with gravity-bending abilities.

Not only that, the Destroyer acts as a perfect disruptor with countless attacks inflicting stagger damage. So, if you want a mixture of survivability, devastating damage, and gravity-based abilities, there’s no better class for you than the Destroyer.
