  • Barrier Barrier will be applied to nearby allies when using 24px Sand Cascade, 24px Desert Shroud, and Sand Flare.png Sand Flare. If 24px Desert Empowerment is traited, then all additional shade skills also apply Barrier. Use it on melee pushes to absorb damage and defensively when being bombed for group survival, as it will mitigate damage and provides some condition clear through Abrasive Grit.
  • If allies go down, ensure you are out of the enemy DPS area and use 24px Garish Pillar to activate the Transfusion.png Transfusion trait for down-state control. Once activated, it will teleport any down players to the Scourge, and it will pulse-heal players in a 600 AOE around the player.


  • Use Ghastly Breach.png Ghastly Breach when engaging the enemy for pulsing Cripple Cripple on the enemy group, in addition to boon corruption and some power and condi damage.
  • Use Trail of Anguish.png Trail of Anguish when engaging the enemy for friendly group Stability Stability, for Cripple Cripple on the enemy group, and enemy boon corruption.


  • Use Ghastly Claws.png Ghastly Claws as a high single target damage skill and to generate life force.
  • Use Unholy Feast.png Unholy Feast frequently, as it is one of the most powerful skills and should be used on cooldown for AoE boon corruption.
  • Use Locust Swarm.png Locust Swarm on a push to CC the enemy group and give AoE swiftness to your party as you engage. This skill is also an excellent life force generator.


  • Staff auto attacks are low impact and its abilities have relatively long cooldowns, so the best use of the weapon is to use its cooldown skills and then swap out as soon as possible.
  • Use Mark of Blood.png Mark of Blood and Chilblains.png Chilblains to build area condi stacks.
  • Use Putrid Mark.png Putrid Mark to transfer conditions to an enemy player.
  • Use Reaper's Mark.png Reaper's Mark to interrupt key skills on enemy players.
