A Fantastic condi damage build, brings very good AOE clearing capabilities, and the damage is usually enough to farm even veteran enemies without much issue. Its weakness, like most other warrior builds, its its relatively low sustain. This issue is somewhat migrated with Blood Reckoning if timed right, however proper dodging is essential to survive. And the large amount of damage makes up for its lack of sustain.

This build's high AoE damage makes it good for farming trash mobs. It excels in groups where it can bring its passive damage buffs.
