Overview

This build is a hybrid condi power build that maximizes both burning and power damage from the three trait lines that it uses. It does very well with AoE damage. If you like teleporting into a group of mobs and aoeing them down, this is a good build for you.

Pros

  • Because this is a 3 stat gear set, the condi and power damage are very high.
  • Additionally, power is high which will feed into even more condi damage via .
  • The 3 stat set from Carrion helps this build maximize power and condi damage than a competing 4 stat set.
  • Power damage can get high boosts with the Virtue lines by having Aegis via and also for a short duration after activating a virtue with .
  • It has a 7% damage multiplier from and another 7% from .
  • This build does very respectable power damage alone, in addition to it's max condition damage that does not have to be sacrificed thanks to easy access to max burn duration from Can't find such trait "Radiant fire"! Please refer to our trait index, , and .
  • Last but not least, the high amount of vitality puts you at about 20K health which allows for a lot more survivability in the open world.


Cons

The main weaknesses of this build are lower condi cleanse and no stun breaks. The vitality from the Carrion gear does give you a much better buffer for dealing with high spikes of damage in pve, and also helps with the buffer for when you are stunned, which you will have to eat since this build has no stun breaks. You may forgo condition damage sigils for or swap several traits or utility skills for more ability to counteract conditions.

Healing Skills Ultimately this is up to you. I have played around with and found it to be more effective in general against conditions and being able to be used when kiting for a bigger heal. I tend to use this heal in conjunction with so I have more sustained healing and the ability to heal on the elite and keep the passive condi-cleanse from the healing signet working.

Utility skills

  • if you dont need condi cleanse and would prefer a block. Because this build has high power, also works very well.
  • can be good for open world if you need the additional full heal.

Traits



Variants

  • for CD reduction and group/event buffing, especially if using 4 signets (Resolve, Bane, Wrath,& Courage). If going this route, it may be worth swapping Sigil of Bursting for Sigil of Force since you lose out on the 15% burn damage modifier and play to the power side of the build.


  • can be useful for added Condi Cleanse.
