General Usage

  • Always use Sharpening Stone.png Sharpening Stone immediately when it comes off cooldown.
  • Cast Poison Volley.png Poison Volley, Crippling Shot.png Crippling Shot, Flame Trap.png Flame Trap, and Viper's Nest.png Viper's Nest when they come off cooldown. In downtime between these skills use your autoattack Crossfire.png Crossfire while trying to flank the boss as much as possible.
  • You don't need to waste dodges to activate the bonus effect of Light on your Feet.png Light on your Feet, you should save your dodges to avoid damage.
  • Do not swap pets unless they are in danger of dying. You don't want them to lose all their boons (especially quickness if they received it).
  • Swap to your Electric Wyvern for crowd control. Concussion Shot.png Concussion Shot should be used as well.

This build deals decent sustained damage but isn't really worth running. You would only ever play this build if you plan to get Path of Fire and play Condi Soulbeast in the near future.
