Utility

Usage

Gameplay Example

, , and are used to maintain quickness on your group.
  • can be cast as soon as it is available.
  • can be used as soon as you have at least 2 charges left.
  • should be used every 7 seconds to activate and .
Be very careful not to use the last charge of your mantras unless the fight is nearly over or personal/party healing is desperately needed. A safe way to use can be to only use it when all charges are available so that 1 charge can always be used for sustain.

Otherwise follow the rotation found in Firebrand - Condition DPS

Screaming gave this build 5 stars August 2019

After the recent buffs, much like the pure DPS variant, this build is astoundingly strong considering just how essential quickness is for both DPS and quality of life in raids, often able to compete with pure DPS builds themselves. Easily one of the strongest support builds right now, and very simple to play while at it, too.
