This build is decent but doesn't have a niche in the meta due to Chronomancer's dominance. If mantra targeting is ever fixed, and Chronomancer ever gets nerfed, this might see play

Amazing build, really great uptime on DPS and quickness! I find this build also really works well in fractals and takes a lot of the workload off of chrono's while providing the team with lots of quickness and condi dmg. There are better foods though that work with this build like sautee (100 concentration 70 toughness) and has better synergy with passive traits.
