Overview

This build provides 100% Quickness Quickness uptime on a closely stacked group while having decent burst and sharing the buff with allies. It pairs well with a Renegade - Boon Support Power DPS providing alacrity.


Unfortunately this build's group DPS contribution will fall behind that of Firebrand - Quickness Support Condi DPS in practically every raid encounter.

Other Variants

The above setups can maintain permanent Quickness Quickness assuming near-perfect play. It should be sufficient if there is an Inspiration Chronomancer in the squad, but you should swap as many Berserker stat icon.png Berserker's pieces to Diviner stat icon.png Diviner as is necessary for consistent boon uptime.

This build should never be used in longer encounters until FB receives a power mod trait. It is only good for short phase encounters like fractals and dungeons where you can phase/kill a boss in <10s.

Power Firebrand is inferior DPS to Condi Firebrand. The Firebrand traitline completely lacks any power damage increases, while heavily focusing on condi damage. The only place Power might outperform Condi is Keep Construct due to low armor. Even with record-level phase times, Condi Firebrand outperforms Power Firebrand on bosses like Slothasor.

A decent alternative to Chronomancer should you need quickness and not want a Chronomancer, with a very simple rotation and your sources of quickness being easy to understand, coupled with the ability to grant an offensive buff if using Perfect Inscriptions with Bane Signet and some great panic buttons within Tome of Resolve and Tome of Justice.

Sadly, it will fall short of the condition variant of this build on the vast majority of bosses: if the phases are not extremely quick and there are no breakbars, the condition variant will pull ahead by a very large margin; while also ironically having good burst despite its condition-based nature. For casual or relaxed groups - and probably every single pug group no matter the boss, the condition variant is better. For high end groups, stacking guardians with Feel My Wrath better. It is very much a fractal build, rather than a raid build. While it does have its place, I would not recommend it when the condition variant is so much stronger.
