A middle-of-the-road condition DPS, Firebrand brings good utility to a fractal or raid group, and becomes very good if it can reset its F1 consistently on adds and trash.

I love this build. Its nice break from dh but still have solid burst, since burning is bursty condi. Also brings some support utility like reflect or stability and aegis for movement part or you can block alot mechanics by aegis. You can dealed tons of damage since dead adds refresh your F1. Definitely best condi dps in fractal
