The basic gist of this build is to use your weapon skills while dodging and then using specific shatter combinations when you have the clones to do so.
- Spam dodge and use mirrors to trigger your Ambush attacks as often as possible. Remember that Ambush has a 1s internal cooldown.
- Shatter when you have 3 clones that you can -instantly- replace. Axe 2, , can help refresh your clones. Thanks to , dodging will also generate new clones for you. If needed, you can take or to increase clone generation.
- Your shatters do not all line up. As such, we use a priority system to determine which shatters to use.
- - This is your bread-and-butter shatter. Always prioritize shattering this with 3 clones.
- - This shatter deals great damage in the Viper setup, so prioritize it second.
- - This shatter doesn't do much for us, but it does grant us some Fury. You can use this shatter with 0 clones directly after one of the shatters above.
- - This shatter grants is some nice i-frames and also grants us Regeneration, which is critical for our DPS. Prioritize this shatter last. It is perfectly fine to shatter this with 0 clones directly after one of the first two shatters.
In short: F2 > F1. After one of those, Shatter either F3 or F4 with 0 clones.
- Use your phantasms off cooldown.
- Always have three clones up at all times. This is critical for your DPS.
- Weapon swap any time you're missing a lot of energy.
- Use to cleanse conditions.
- Abuse your or for frequent dodges.
- - can provide a strong stunbreak.
- You dodge often so use that to your advantage. Your dodges are: , , , going through your , and of course your default evade skill.
- A good alternative to evade attacks is to teleport out of it by using , or .
- Interrupts: ,
- (as a last resort)
