The Scrapper is a subclass of Lost Ark‘s Martial Artists. Similar to its other specializations, it’s focused on melee combat and wields a giant gauntlet to smash her foes.

The class’ particularity is her “inverse forms of attacks,” which makes it more challenging to master than other Martial Artist specializations for some players.

She has various buffs and oscillates between Shock and Stamina skills to perform combos. As such, she’s challenging to play efficiently at first, but is rewarding when mastered.

Here are the best builds for the Scrapper on Lost Ark.

Best Scrapper Builds

Shock Training style

The Shock Training style is a bit harder to play than the Taijutsu style. It uses Stamina skills to generate Shock and increase the damage of its skills. Here are the best builds for raiding (single target-oriented), as opposed to Chaos (AoE-oriented).

Raiding build

It is recommended to go for Specialization first, and then Crit as priority stats with this build. In terms of Engravings, Shock Training is evidently a priority.

Other aggressive ones can be efficient on the Scrapper and depend on your playstyle. Grudge and Ambush Master are safe bets, as well as Adrenaline and Keen Blunt.

Chaos build

Chain Destruction10/10Endless RageTenacityShaking Ground
True Rising Fist10/10Lightning FistAir RaidGiant’s Advance
Supernova10/10Swift PreparationPiercing StrikeSpinless Hit

Earthquake Chain and Roundup Sweep are taken on this build to inflict more AoE damage. The Tripods such as Lightning Fists are also powerful for Chaos since this one inflicts damage over time on multiple targets. Otherwise, your playstyle won’t change much.

When it comes to Engravings and Runes, you won’t have to optimize them since Chaos is pretty easy in the game, compared to high-end raids such as Argos or Valtan.

Taijutsu style

This playstyle is more straightforward than Shock Training; it mainly uses Stamina skills, and only one or two Shock skills only to reduce its level. As such, the players don’t need to oscillate between both kinds of attacks.

Raiding build

Death Rattle10/10Quick PreparationSingle HitShock Explosion

Shock skills here are only used to reduce the resource because their damage is reduced by your Engravings, which increase the damage of Stamina skills instead.

For this build, Swiftness is the main stat to empower, with Crit as the second one. As for Engravings, the first one to get is evidently Ultimate Skill: Taijutsu, as well as other aggressive Engravings such as Grudge, Keen Blunt, and Adrenaline, depending on your playstyle.

Chaos build

Chain Destruction7/10Endless RageDynamic Absorption

This build is similar to the Raid one, but with more AoE potential using more AoE skills, and range-increasing Tripods such as Wide Hit and Giant’s Advance.

Similar to the Shock Training Chaos build, there is no need to optimize Engravings and Runes to get the most of AoE modes.
