Silver Medal - Good
Chinkeeyong said this build was good 3 weeks ago

This build deals good damage on the golem but has an extreme reliance on alacrity and animation canceling, making it impractical to bring to an actual raid. Other condition DPS like Mirage and Daredevil perform better on all encounters that favor condition damage. However, it does provide solid damage and CC and is a good option for Warrior players if banners are already covered.

Gold Medal - Great
