  • Avatar Amulet Avatar Amulet

Usage

General

  • General usage is to keep upkeep skills on and use short bow autoattack while dodging enemy skills. When on Legendary Renegade Stance Legendary Renegade Stance cast summons in the middle of the fight for AoE daze, weakness and damage while protecting and giving life stealing for you and your allies.
  • Cast summons on top of downed enemy or ally players to cleave or secure stomp/rez.
  • Use short bow skill
    to apply AoE slow and damage and
    to CC enemies.
  • Mender's Amulet Mender's Amulet
    Mender's Amulet.pngMender's Amulet
    +1050 Power +560 Precision +560 Vitality +1050 Healing power
    is preferred because of how well some Renegade skills scale with healing power while still doing decent damage.
  • 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.
  • is taken for its synergy with the elite skill of
    (Kalla).
    has no internal cooldown, meaning if the ravens from the rune start attacking 3 enemies at once, you'll be stealing ~2k health per second - more if you're also doing damage and have an active Renegade summon doing the same. This rune is a great boost for both your damage and sustain.
  • 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
    on/off every 5 seconds. Superspeed Superspeed isn't better than Swiftness outside combat therefore maintaining IO would be pointless.


Sustain

  • Most of the sustain comes from Legendary Assassin Stance Legendary Assassin Stance (Shiro) and Staff combined with Renegade AoE fields and life steal.
  • Avoiding damage through chaining evades and blocks is very important.
    is quite possibly the best defensive skill in the build, refilling 25 endurance (half a dodge roll's worth) whilst also evading and removing every hard-CC / snare from the player. In addition to that Staff has a short CD block/evasion in form of
    and
    .
    • Assuming you have 50 endurance after switching to Shiro and triggering
      , it's possible to chain
      and dodges for 10 seconds straight.
  • turns
    into a defensive skill with respectable healing on it which can be used in any situation, even while CC'd.
  • Most of your traits are defensive by nature.


Kalla

  • 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.
  • is the healing skill of Kalla. It gives -50% condition damage to everyone standing inside of it while also giving (depending on the amulet 690-1100) 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.
  • for the most part is irrelevant and won't be used, except for niche situations like having some energy to spare just before you're about to swap legends and there's nothing else to use, or if you're under pressure and need the Protection Protection from it. While using sage amulet or having a high condition team you can use it to add a bit more pressure.
  • has been mentioned earlier, this is your elite. A great skill for both burst damage and self-sustain. Try to overlap as many different sources of damage 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.


Shiro

  • Many of these skills had been covered in detail already, here we're just listing noteworthy things that were left out.
  • is a skill with life steal, which means the damage it deals bypasses any damage mitigation like Protection Protection or even
    . That being said it still can't go through evasion or invulnerabilities such as
    .
  • Use
    and
    for mobility both in and out of combat.
  • won't be used much because it blows pretty much your entire energy pool, leaving you defenseless and with barely anything to capitalize on the CC. This should only be used to set up kills for your teammates, or to interrupt very important channels like a rez or a stomp.

Definately sustainable against power damage. The aoe weakness and protection definately give it viable support option against power damage. Because rev still is still a rev condi management is still lacking even with breakrazors bastion traited. This puts his support capabilities even wit mad rune+soulcleave summit and the dps buffs from bleeds overal even lower then tempest. Also the damage is simply low. The fact that its still relatiely. Hmm not weak but mediocore against condis makes it like an conditonal side noder, it has very little counter pressure damage overall.

Dont get me wrong this definately the most succesfull renegade build ive witnessed and its at its final steps into his evolution to be on par with the rest of the classes.

Since this build stil has a good detterent against power damage and can sidenode. Id too rate this as a second class build.

Its good enough for solo que. Id give it a pass.

As the moderator doesn't allow to submit the rating that states my constructive feedback, I will be very generic in my description - This Build will work with some trait/rune changes. At the moment, it lacks sustain and damage, so it's an in-between kind of build that isn't able to +1 or hold a node on itself.

The elite + rune allow for some unexpected DPS with the SB auto. One issue I found was particularly when I dueling a Mirage—the evasive mirror trait pretty much shut down the auto, forcing you to use staff auto more often. Warriors and the shield reflect are annoying as well. So, reflects are a no-no. I wish the elite also generated unblockable effect for allies, as that would be a game changer. Or if that proves to be too OP maybe make a trait that gives 5 seconds of unblockable upon activating an elite (20 sec CD, Renegade). Anyway, it has excellent sustain with the passive healing, dodges, blocks, and CCs. I used the Celestial variant for maximum tankiness.

A good and adaptive build. If the player masters the energy management (Charged Mists), it will have great sustain and high mobility as reward. It offers a good AoE boost, heal over time and CC support in team fights, but your allies need a main understanding of kallas spirits to succeed. All summons can be destroyed and are affected by CC. In some cases you can benefit by their nature e.g. to activate Dragon Hunter's traps safely or to use them as distraction.

Especially great in fights against Scourges and bunker builds. Currently a great help to deal with the Scrapper invasion.

A defensive playstyle is necessary.

Not the best build but it can do some damage but not enough healing like herald does. So if you gonna use this build be careful with it
