Usage

Set up

The build requires a lot of button pressing to reach its true potential. In short, you are going to to use CC skills, and to use damage skills. You want to use the damage skills while you are unleashed to do more damage thanks to , and you unleash the pet to do CC because hammer only does CC when the pet is unleashed.

To quickly and at a glance know who is unleashed, look at your pet UI. If the pet skills are visible, like , you are unleashed, do extra damage, and can command the pet to use its skills. If the untamed pet skills are visible, like , your pet is unleashed, you take less damage, and can command the pet to use its untamed skills. Your pet doesn't actually gain any benefit from unleash, it only changes the skills you can command it to do.

To simplify, unleash your pet to do CC with your hammer, and unleash yourself to do damage.

Hammer

Hammer is your main weapon, you can technically play 100% of the time in this weapon set. Its skills are clearly divided:

  • Skills 2 and 4 are damage skills and should be used when you are unleashed.
  • Skills 3 and 5 are CC skills and should be used when your pet is unleashed and your damage skills are on cooldown.
Axe offhand

In the axe offhand weapon set, always stay unleashed. Skill 4 is a CC skill and all other axe skills are damage skills. Use in melee range for maximum damage.

Other sources of CC
  • will knock down enemies hit by all spores, so only those in the very middle. This makes it harder to CC small enemies with this skill, but it should be trivial on big enemies.
  • Your pet skills also CC, but this CC does not count towards . With Smokescale Smokescale, Takedown (F1). And with Rock Gazelle Rock Gazelle, (F2) and Charge(F3).

Quickness

  • Because of , doing CC while unleashed grants you quickness. Unfortunately, your hammer only does CC when your pet is unleashed. This leaves and as your sources of quickness, always cast them while unleashed.
    • As you master this build, know that you can start the cast of or and then very quickly Unleash youself. This way, the Crowd Control will occur while you are unleashed, and will give you Quickness Quickness from .
  • For a build more focused on quickness, use and .

Damage

Use the damage skills detailed above, then use your CC skills detailed above to reduce your cooldowns. Thanks to and your berserker gear you will have very high crit chance, or 99% when attacking from behind due to .

Defense

  • - you can't die during this, and then it heals you for 50% of your missing health. By proccing so often, this skill will have a very low cooldown.
  • - reduces damage taken by 50% by 10 seconds, and its cooldown is reduced by 1 second each time you strike during that time. Combine if with or to significantly reduce its cooldown. And with on top, you will have good uptime of this massive damage reduction.

Sustain

  • Your Unleashed Ambush skills or heal you a little bit, and more for each target hit.

Great build with amazing CC and AoE damage potential. Capable of locking down anything with small or no defiance bars. Shines most against groups due to the 3 second cool down for CC triggers on enemies with defiance. It also is very susceptible to conditions, having basically no way of dealing with then outside of switching to mutate or running the timer at 1hp with your heal.

I really like this build and excellent explanation of unleashing skills with both pet and ranger. Thank you! I’m wondering if the sigils of Force and Impact conflict? ie: both Enhancement and percentages based. Sometimes sigils pairing are confusing to me.

A very fun build that actually makes use the unleash mechanic. Spamming both CC and damage. If you like button smashing you will like this build. But be warned that it requires some learning to do, and can be confusing at first, especially keeping track of the unleashed status or when your unleashed ambush is ready.
