Variant Equipment

Editor's Note: While Trailblazer really does a lot for your defense, Condi Berserker relies on their burst, crits, and strike damage more than other condi builds might. If you only want to go for one set, make it Viper's.

Gear

Runes

  • - for ridiculous might uptime

Sigils

Re-Rating this build after having played it a significant amount more. It is an extremely powerful build, but can be very, very squishy due to the reduced toughness from Berserk (down to 700 with viper's). Still, this is the only valid ranged warrior build and it's absolutely a very effective option for nearly any open world.

I personally found using a few rabid trinkets in place of Viper's made the build feel more "rounded out", though I don't think its necessary or optimal.
