Incredibly strong at smaller scales. Brings the rare and powerful alacrity boon, has boonrip potential similar to chronomancer along with some of the best CC in the game and access to pulsing stability. Has issues in groups that don't run enough to maintain permanent alacrity due to cooldown desync, particularly with necro wells, which limits its applicability.
