This build has proven itself to be a considerable force. Its high AoE damage, even though it's condi, has shown to be very effective at event farming and its multitudes of defensive options (note: replacing utility skills) means you can deal with just about anything you encounter. It might not be up to par with the insanity of condi tempest or condi firebrand, but its easy to play and very effective in almost any situation. The one note I'd say is that the Viper variant does much better in Events than the Trailblazer variant, but Trailblazer is much stronger in solo / roaming play.
