Utility

For the optional slot:

  • - ranged teleport and stun break, useful for disengaging or chasing down targets.
  • - better condition management, instantly gets rid of conditions that'd get in the way of doing damage like Blind Blind or Weakness Weakness and could even act as a low-CD ranged snare.
  • - low CD stun break with extra damage and Weakness Weakness application to shut down burst attempts.
  • - great CC that makes it hard for enemies to reach you or escape your damage.
  • - creates a safe zone against ranged enemies, could help against some popular specs like Deadeyes or Soulbeasts and the Weakness Weakness shuts down power-based builds in melee too. Furthermore the healing reduction from Poison Poison could help you wear down tanky Cele builds.
  • - ranged CC which stops enemies from escaping, and even helps with LF management.

Stats

There's some room for customization when it comes to gearing:

  • For more focus on boon duration replace the Amulet and 1 Accessory with Diviner Diviner ones. With Ascended gear this will give you exactly 30% boon duration, enough to hit breakpoints on some traits granting Protection Protection and Quickness Quickness.
  • You may choose to sacrifice some crit chance for more tankiness by replacing the Amulet and 1 Ring with Cavalier Cavalier ones.

I'm very impressed so far. Both Curses and Death magic act as defensive lines in the build more or less but that doesn't show on the damage because the burst is still great. At the same time Carapace stacks, high Protection uptime and Weakness spam make this build quite tanky even with Marauder stats. Curses supplies us with good boon corruption too which helps us bring down Cele builds and further adds to both the damage and sustain (if we can corrupt Might into Weakness for instance). Curses also bumps up our crit chance considerably while Death Magic increases Power. Condition cleansing is above average as well. Mobility's okay, Pack runes + Agility sigil give it good Swiftness uptime and then there's Death's Charge too, or even Flesh Wurm if you're willing to drop Suffer. It's a 5/5 from me.
