Overview

Condition Daredevil is a very strong build with high uptime on i-frames through its ability to spam dodges. In addition, it has relatively high DPS if near allies and can bring very high amounts of sustain when needed. Its relatively simple rotation makes it a strong option even for new players, though its reliance on abilities that force movement can be disorienting to some.

Condi thief is a ridiculously fun build that sees high effectiveness in open world. With some of the recent changes, it now has considerable damage in open world, and the possibility of running Viper or Cele gear while maintaining crit-healing via IP makes it hard to kill.
