Equipment

Ascended gear and stat infusions are not required; you can use exotic gear with the same stats.

Optimal Equipment

The Optimal Variant is the best possible gear for this build. It's overkill in most cases, and you should only get it if you have spare gold or you don’t care about fractals and raids.

A solid Revenant build for players who haven't unlocked elite specs. Deals good AoE damage and has great lifesteal.

This is better with Renegade spec instead of Retribution. Faster might stacks, access to COs, 33% crit and extra 250 ferocity is overall more damage. Viscous reprisal has a longer ramp-up time and is much more situational than lasting legacy. Although for new Rev players who haven't earned an elite spec yet, this is definitely the best build.
