Specializations

  • Higher damage can be achieved with Thermal Release Valve, though the reliance on regular dodging makes it more complicated and could leave you without important defence.

Relic
  • Relic of Akeem is also a strong option if you use Air Blast each time you enter Flamethrower. Its AoE nature makes it superior if there are targets other than the boss around.


Non-SotO Gear

For players that don't own Secrets of the Obscure, Relic of the Aristocracy is the best core option. As this adds a lot of condi duration, you should run the following gear instead:

Very difficult to play, but strong. The main issue is easier builds that deal similar damage.

One of the strongest condition damage classes at the moment. Provides heavy vulnerability, good CC, and a large number of unique conditions for Deadeyes in addition to strong personal DPS.
