Usage

Heavy Burst Damage and instant CC, Crits, blocks, and heals give burns. Combo's:

Judge's Intervention or Flashing Blade into fight -> (Swap to Scepter/Focus) -> Quick pop Chains of Light-> Dragon's Maw for 10 Might + Heavy CC pressure -> Procession of Blades for Burst/Block drops -> Zealots Flame + Spear of Justice for Burn -> Purging flames for more burn or condi cleanse when it gets hot -> Shield of Wrath (for Might combo with Purging Flames and blocking)

Shield of Wrath 1/4 of the way into stomps to secure a safe stomp

Drop traps on downed enemies

Be aware of Search and Rescue by rangers and use Judge's Intervention/Flashing Blade to teleport to them and then drop your traps.

When your burst/trap skills are on cooldown spam zealots flame and spear of justice to keep constant burn on them (but be aware of condi transfer by necros) and use skills like Ray of Judgement/Shield of Wrath to avoid taking too much damage.

Main usage is much like DPS thief-> drop into fight on point, lay heavy cc, burn and dps, get out.

Wings of Resolve is an awesome stunbreak+ mobility skill to keep your rotations clean and fast

Spear of Justice is an awesome constant burn+ click ready CC for fights/to keep enemies from ressing.

Shield of Courage is good to use during teamfights when teammates get low as well as helping teammates secure stomps

while still being able to drop heavy damage pressure on the downed.

Counters

Necro Condi Transfer while Condi-Cleanse is on Cooldown CC/Sustain Heavy classes like Engi Hammer Stun
