Condi Herald is a strikingly powerful option for open world, capable of soloing champions and extremely difficult content.
Condition Herald is a slow-paced attrition build which has a considerable amount of self-healing and DPS, even in buffer sets like Trailblazer's . The build plays a lot like a bunker build, whittling down an opponent while ensuring that you remain topped-off throughout the fight. Its rotation is very simple, though you should get used to counting your autos, as interrupting its auto attack chain can be a massive DPS loss.
This build is meant for solo or roaming play. It will not serve you well in a zerg and is not recommended for group play.
