  • could significantly increase your burst damage, but it may be hard to pull off in 1v1s.

Superior Rune of Fireworks



  • Change some parts to Cavalier stat icon.png Cavalier's when requiring more toughness.
  • Adding a bit precision with Berserker stat icon.png Berserker's or Assassin stat icon.png Assassin's can be useful to reach 100% crit chance on Hammer.
  • over Hydromancy - better cleansing on the defensive set, lower pressure.
  • Defensive rune with additional boon duration for a higher Retaliation uptime.
  • for slightly higher boon uptime.
  • against non evading oponents.
  • for increased boon uptime.



  • This build reaches 85% without any precision where
    provides 50% while under the effects of Retaliation,
    adds 10% against burning foes and finally Fury Fury for 20%.
  • Try to have retaliation up as long as possible, not just for it's bonus to crit chance but also the might stack.

Highest burst combo (preferably executed from a safe distance):

  1. should be cast before the combo. Try not to get hit because you'll need it to explode for damage. Wait until only ~1 second remains of its duration then quickly start doing the rest of the combo. You can swap weapons while waiting.
  2. Weapon Swap
  3. - start casting it from range.
  4. to teleport to the target right before MB finishes its animation.
  5. (to gain Retaliation from
    ) should be used just before Mighty Blow lands.
  6. adds a nice bit of extra damage.
  7. isn't really part of the rotation but hopefully it procs.


  • Boon removal (as it takes away much of the build's damage)
  • Constant condition overload.

Strong duelist, but the lack of mobility really drags it down in an actual roaming scenario.

Damage is there, sustain is there. While isn't really comparable to the current stars of roaming, it can definitely put up a good fight in various situations.
