Questions about Power Scourge Zerg Build

I'm gearing my scourge for my guild's WvW zergs, and this is the build that was recommended to me. Does this seem right? Those celestial trinkets and back piece seem like an odd and unnecessary choice.

    I'm wondering what role you're supposed to have with this build... Wait... Is it all boon corrupt? Feel like a meme build from my point of view but I might be wrong.

    If you're in a guild, then play what the guild wants you to play. What you linked is ok, not what I would prefer to use in guild zerg settings. But note that you will do zero ranged pressure without staff and you lose quite a bit of dps taking Spite over Soul Reaping. For the build they're looking to achieve, I prefer mixing Cele & Grieving. The result will be better than the mix they're having you use.

    But if you're in a guild, I always say do what your guild wants you to do. There might be reasons for their build based on the guild comp. Doesn't mean you can't bring it up and challenge their decisions though.

    Do you use all celestial trinkets and back w/ grieving armor and weapons?

    Yes. See this build, it'll accomplish what they're trying to achieve (corrupt boons and tanking you up). But it'll actually do more damage.

    Dmg isn't the problem. It's much harder to sustain than to bomb someone.
    And cele is just about right.
    Gives.everything.

    And actually scourges main role is still corrupts, even if this got gutted right now by huge amounts, if you compare it to pof release

    just forget about condi, scrapper with anti-toxin just makes every condi build dead in the water. It's some abrasive grit+sanc runes level kitten of cleansing.

    That might matter in public zergs, but not in guilds.

    Game play starts at 20:07 if you want to see what the build can do before spending time watching the guide

    Ok, I have to correct myself. You're right, we are also considering changing to full power nec
