For Fractals i strongly recommend Discipline over Tactics, the dps and QoL gain should easily outperform Empower Allies, and the assassin gear shouldn't be needed depending on your AR/party comp.

Weapon choice is debatable as well, i personally use A/A + Dagger for good dps and quick boonstrip, and CC with rock/plank/metal rod.

Also the guide takes Greatsword for some reason yet doesn't take the greatsword trait on Strength?
