The Blue Rangerr gave this build 5 stars November 2017

After finally getting around to testing this, I found to be extremely high damage. Way more than I expected. Single target damage is incredibly high- added to the ridiculous AoE pressure. The bigger the enemy group, the more damage you put out. Against organised groups it does drop off, but for large scale open world content its a highly competitive DPS slot.

Xivor gave this build 5 stars October 2017

Started running this in our guild last night to test out and was quite impressed. Great DPS spread through unstrippable buffs, and good access to utility through smoke fields and a strong repeatable blast finisher. Might sharing is very strong and defensive utility gained through stolen skills can really help support the team. A great build to supplement a DPS sub.
