Overview

The condition DPS Renegade build for fractals. This build has a difficult rotation which requires lots of practice to perform well with. In exchange for the difficulty it brings very high sustained damage, very good CC, high Vulnerability Vulnerability, and multiple supportive auras including Assassin's Presence.png Assassin's Presence, 24px Breakrazor's Bastion, and 24px Soulcleave's Summit.
Renegade has a long ramp up time which makes it better suited for long fights without phases. It excels against large stationary bosses where it can hit with every missile of 24px Citadel Bombardment.
This guide is focused on fractals. For the raid version see Renegade - Condi DPS.

Genaral

  • Swap legends before you swap weapons. This allows you to proc
    every 9 seconds without having to put one on your Mace.
  • While in Mace/Axe, always try to let your Auto Attack chain finish, as the last hits are very strong.
  • On most fights, there are going to be moments when you can't hit the boss, but you'll still gain energy. During these phases, use Heroic Command.png Heroic Command and Orders from Above.png Orders from Above to help keep boons up.
  • Try to avoid canceling 24px Bloodbane Path during its cast.

DPS Renegade doesn't perform well in fractals due to its ramp-up time, but the abundance of large hitbox bosses in CMs means that a well played Renegade can still hold its own in non-speedrun groups. It also provides a good amount of utility and survivability to the team through Kalla spirits.

Not that bad not that good in fractals. Can easy support team by might or alacrity. Condi burst isn't that strong like firebrand/mirage

Troupe gave this build 5 stars January 2018

Strong potential DPS, but rarely has the chance to fully ramp it up due to the short, bursty nature of most fractal encounters. Provides decent vulnerability uptime and a strong stat aura that will buff the power damage of other players in your party.
