Gold Medal - Great
Chinkeeyong said this build was great March 2018

The best warrior build in fractals, raids with burst phases, and casual PvE. Brings incredible group damage buffs while still dealing high burst DPS.

Gold Medal - Great
Troupe said this build was great March 2018

After all these years, Base warrior has made a comeback, proving the superior provider of banners and empower allies in encounters where the slow ramp up of conditions makes the condi berserker alternative to this weak.
