Unless someone around you gives you boon and heal, marauder and Superior Rune of the Scholar are not recommended for armor.

FeelsDestroyerMan - Huge damage potential in the full burst, even on its own. Lost the Curse way of ripping but still enough for coordinated spiking. Quite squishy, but which DPS class isn't? Does need the melee skirmish for the full potential, but thanks to staff and wells, its less restricted than say Boomer Scrapper.
