Usage

Damage

  • Use and off cooldown
  • This build does not have an actual rotation due to its skills having no real loop. Instead, it features a priority of skills:
  • + to open fights, and throughout the fight to maintain
  • Longbow: aim to use 2-3 times, depending on if is up or not, and twice. Use and off cooldown
  • Sword: aim to use 2-3 times, depending on if is up or not. Use and off cooldown. Use directly after for the Fire Aura, which is especially useful against groups of enemies. Against foes under 50% HP, use off cooldown.


Defense

  • blocks attacks and reflects projectiles.
  • can be used to blind enemies.
  • Remember to always dodge and sidestep attacks if possible. Don't get hit by anything you can move out of.


Crowd Control


Video Examples

Trailblazer Zerk vs Razorwing

  • Though the mechanical play is a bit shoddy here, this is a good demonstration of the fact that this build can actually compete with some other solo options.

A really great Warrior build. Suffers somewhat from any survivability while going solo though. To counter this annoyance, I changed my build by replacing the sigils of doom/geomancy for sigil of smoldering and changed Rings, Accessories and backpack to Rabid, which is about a 6% DPS loss for reaching very close to 1300 toughness, reverting back to the default 1000 toughness in berserk mode. I find it quite more viable that way! While it always packs a ton of damage with bursts, reaching it's maximal damage potential is very difficult when you have to keep track of what's going on and the berserk timer extension with the specs skills.

An excellent build in open world zergs with amazing cleave capabilities and powerful group support through banners. This build can also hold its own when alone, though it feels more like it's meant for group content.

Condi berserker is a alchemist build capable of transmuting ground into fire through force of sheer rage. Condi berserker has great burst thanks to the nature of burn, and the massive fire field created by longbow ensures that groups are no issue. Where CBerserker falls short is its ability to stay alive, most of the "healing" CBerserker has is preventative, because corpses cant deal damage. However, when a more powerful enemy appears, CBerserker struggles due to its lack of sustained healing. Great for most open world, struggles with some harder content, 4/5.
