  • Take if you're struggling against condition builds, but do note that it'll cost you quite a bit of damage.

  • Invoking a legend resets energy to 50 (ideally 75, more on that later), removes 1 condition, and could even trigger the sigils of your active weapon set (if they are not on CD) among other things. Swapping legends is basically the main resource management tool in the build - swap whenever you're out of CDs, low on energy, or need to cleanse.
  • Renegade comes with its 3 own specialization skills. and are the first two and will hardly ever be used. is slightly more viable, but not in combat (except for energy depleting) - instead, you should be using this between fights for the Alacrity Alacrity, to speed up the CD recovery of your team.
  • Because of you should always aim to deplete your energy before switching legends.
  • allows for permanent Swiftness Swiftness uptime. The easiest way to trigger this is to turn either (if you chose Shiro) or (if you chose Jalis) on/off every 5 seconds.
  • Much of the build's damage comes from spamming as much as you can.


  • Every skill on this legend applies AoE Protection Protection through the trait , and all the summons stay active even after swapping legends except for the elite because that's an upkeep skill.
  • Summons can be killed and CC'd - try to spread them out in a way that their effects overlap but the summons aren't on top of each other.
    • Against projectile based specs you could actually exploit this to your advantage, hiding behind the spirits to make them bodyblock projectiles. This trick could even be used to safe stomp Warriors/Revenants/Engineers.
  • is the healing skill of Kalla. It gives -50% condition damage to everyone standing inside of it while also providing significant AoE healing per second for 10 seconds. Swapping to Shiro and dodging inside its area helps you recover from low health while avoiding most of the damage. Coupled with the passive stacking trait you can build a fair amount of condition damage reduction.
  • is the stun break here, but that's just one aspect of it. The Stability Stability further mitigates incoming damage through while the CC not only shuts down enemies through interrupts, but also spams Weakness Weakness from on each hit.
    • In general, this is the first skill you should cast when in combat after swapping to Legendary Renegade Stance Legendary Renegade Stance. Do note however that using this skill offensively makes you rather easy to shut down and killed in a CC chain if the enemy has stability stacks unless legend swap is available.
  • brings AoE damage and when paired with the elite summon it gives you more damage while also giving you sustain.
  • is best used while other spirits are also active, as Razorclaw causes them to apply Bleeding.
  • is a great skill for both burst damage and self-sustain. Try to overlap as many different sources of damage (such as summons) as possible to get the maximum amount of procs out of it. The short bow autoattack procs this effect once when the projectile hits and once when the projectile explodes and applies bleeding.


  • is great for mitigating damage for both yourself and your team.
  • provides excellent defense vs CC for every ally affected, while also mitigating direct damage through the Weakness Weakness and the trait (although the trait only affects you).
    • This skill has synergy with your Kalla spirits! As the summoned spirits are interactable, enemies can CC them, but you can prevent that by granting them Stability Stability through this skill after swapping legends.
  • is yet another form of damage mitigation, and it's instant.
  • is one of the strongest skills you've got in the build, and also the only stunbreak on this legend. It's rather costly though, keep it for saving your allies or breaking out of stuns that could result in your death.
    • Being a stun break with a cast time, that means if you get interrupted while channeling it you'll lose the entire energy cost of this skill without getting anything other than a stun break out of it. Consider using it while standing on whenever possible.
  • also deserves a mention. You've guessed, another skill for mitigating damage but this is a bit more situational as it doesn't work on targets that are immune to CC. It's also just in general a great AoE CC that could either set up kills for your team, or take pressure off of them.

Update - November 2020

Currently the strongest rev build, mainly a sidenoder. However it is easily countered by soft CC and basic kiting.

Good alternative to Salvation Kalla = mostly vs a power comp. (Note -please update the incorrect traits interaction - Determined Resolution, and remove a Herald trait mention - Forceful Persistence)

Good AoE and CC output but has very little stun breaks. Would rather have/use a reaper.

Retribution Kalla is a decent build; nevertheless, just like Auramancer, which has been meta up until a short while ago, it's too reliant on having high apm. It's biggest weakness though, is that it has very limited access to cheap stunbreaks, which makes it highly vulnerable to cc heavy opponents. Although Darkrazor's Daring might be considered a cheap stunbreak compared to the very expensive Rite of the Great Dwarf the skill will often be on cooldown, since it's also an important defense tool, because it applies weakness on enemies with each intervall.

Renegade is now one of the strongest builds in the meta. The AoE spam from Kalla is obnoxious and the shortbow buffs can really be felt.

I don't know. This build has incredible sustain. If you can land your elite, you are invincible for a while. It's such a meme build, but it works. If this build can be played right, you can do a lot. You have decent mobility to get around the map, incredible bunker capability, support, and decent dps to actually win a fight. It's good for solo queueing, this build would probably be incredible till the mid plat stage (I've only truly tried it in unranked). Very fun build.
