Rothlorine said this build was great June 2016

IF you use the berserker runes u can also deal physical damage wich allows you to deal huge DPS ... if you have a good healer in the raid then this build is awesome!!! :)

DarkFire said this build was great May 2016

2/22/17: Build is now capable of doing 36.2k/33.4k dps on small hitboxes with/without fire/poison/ethereal combo fields under the boss. That makes it the highest single target build in the game for small hitboxes. Still suffers from loss of venoms to cleaving adds, and the boss moving, although the dps loss is rather small from both of those.

Ishin rikku said this build was great April 2016

Amazing build that will carry your weight. Don't recommend it in a composition of only 2 condis, since it would slow the red kill a lot. It's inferior than Staff berserker, BUT oh my it's fun as hell to play!
