Detailed Explanations

Traps

  • Use Procession of Blades and Test of Faith when the enemy group is pushing towards you or your group is in melee
  • Don't try to predict the enemy group far in advance or precast traps, wait until you have an opportunity to get immediate value
  • Wings of Resolve can be used offensively to position yourself for traps
    • Don't put yourself in a position where you could die trying to get better traps off


CC

  • Position carefully when using Hunter's Ward - Don't use it while crossing the enemy group
  • Use your CC when:
    • Your group calls a spike:
      • Winds - Winds of Disenchantment
      • Wells - Well of Corruption+Well of Suffering
      • Shades - Desert Shroud
      • Traps - Procession of Blades+Test of Faith
    • On top of enemy downs (while alive players are on top of them)
    • Enemy groups moving defensively while your group is pushing


Single Target

  • Maintain Spear of Justice on the focus target for as long as possible to keep Revealed Revealed up
  • When Spear of Justice is close to expiring, use the flip skill Hunter's Verdict to pull targets
    • Pull early if you have a chance to secure a kill when the enemy group disengages from yours
  • Use Chains of Light to follow up on Hunter's Verdict or to catch targets as enemies disengage
  • If you have a chance to use Zealot's Fire or True Shot on an isolated target without projectile block, take it


Sustained damage

  • When using ground AoEs like Symbol skills or Sword of Justice, try to place them so that one edge is on the enemy group and the other edge is in the direction they are moving to
  • Your Longbow skills are vulnerable to projectile hate, camp Scepter/Torch while Winds of Disenchantment and other projectile hate is up, swapping only if you see a good opportunity to use Hunter's Ward
    • Once projectile block is down try to swap between weapons as often as possible, keeping all damage skills on cooldown
      • It is worth delaying the swap for 1-2 seconds to fit another Symbol skill
  • Use your Symbol skills quickly after swapping weapons so that the cooldowns will line up for future swaps
  • Combine your Symbol skills with other damage to generate higher spikes
    • Symbol of Punishment Weapon Swap Weapon Swap Symbol of Energy True Shot
    • Symbol of Punishment Sword of Justice
  • Try to hit your own group with Cleansing Flame as well if you can, but prioritize hitting enemies

  • Symbol of Energy
  • Symbol of Punishment
  • True Shot - when no projectile block present
  • Zealot's Fire Zealot's Flame - when no projectile block present
