Repeated nerfs to the Tempest Specialisation and the build's most important DPS skills along with the release of Weaver have left this build poorly positioned in the meta, but it still remains a functional DPS build.

This is the highest DPS currently available for large hitboxes--it's the reason why most of us tempest users had to acquire an extra Viper's set. Even in small hitboxes it clocks in third, right after Condi Engi (albeit it will commonly out-DPSing it because of the Engi's rotation). The Condi Tempest's dead-easy use age (lacking an actual rotation), this build will ensure extremely high damage in face of hard mechanics. The only downfall to this build is its poor CC ability.
