Equipment Variants

  • Condi Boon Chronomancer is most effective on encounters where you are likely to be tanking (Soulless Horror and Twin Largos). For this reason Trailblazer is the default gear, but if you do not need to tank or simply want more damage, then the Trailblazer pieces may be swapped for Viper pieces.
  • The setup above has ~35% boon duration. In practise you want somewhere between 30-50%, so feel free to add or remove Seraph pieces to guarantee boon uptime.
  • Plaguedoctor pieces instead of Seraph will allow you maintain some tankiness, at the cost of a small amount of damage and boon duration.
