  • The combo should down unaware enemies or enemies that didn't pay enough attention. However, there will be situations where the combo won't burst certain classes like a warrior, so you may want to dodge until you get your skills back.
  • Always have Aegis Aegis when you want to do the burst combo. It's really important because of the
    trait which increases your damage if you have Aegis Aegis. If you don't have it, then use
    to gain it.
  • If you use
    activate
    right after
    to maximize your damage. Additionally,
    can be used to pull enemies back into your symbol
  • Try to use
    when you have a condition , because the damage of that skill gets higher when a condition is cured
  • is used when your burst fails, when you are low HP, when your virtues are on cooldown or when you need to get out of a sticky situation ( 10 people ganking you ).
  • Use
    to break out of stun or when you have many conditions on you.
  • can be really good with hammer's
    and scepter's
    , immobilizing a target giving stacks of vulnerability.
  • Only use
    to break out of a stun or if you need Aegis Aegis for your burst
  • gives you 3 stacks of Might Might which helps with the burst and the overall dps.
  • Use
    when your hp is really low or when you need to cure conditions.

Counters

  • Heavy CC ( Crowd Control ).
  • Heavy condition damage.
  • D/D Elementalists
