This build is an awesome alternative for thief! Really decent, fun and relatively easy to learn build! Viable too!

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!!! :)

Offers unparalleled breakbar potential. The damage output can be unstable and gimmicky but its still a viable pick in comps that have trouble smashing bars or are looking for another source of condi DPS.

  • 7/26 Patch: Pretty much an overall nerf to damage output and purpose. Baseline Vshare means there's less reason to invest in this build for breaking and thus it's relegated to just being a suboptimal condition build.

    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.

    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!

    Low damage, hard to play, only real utility is above average breakbar.

    Silver Medal - Good
    Octavianrb said this build was good April 2016

    Viable but never optimal. Reapers and engis will usually fare better. Very good CC and sustainability, but mediocre condi dps. Works fine in spirit vale, but not very good in salvation pass. DPS takes a fairly significant hit if venoms aren't properly shared or if they are distributed among multiple targets.
