Usage

Damage

Basics

This is an oversimplification. For a detailed guide on how to properly deal damage with Power Weaver, see The Raid Build

  • Rotate between and , making sure to double-attune to each when possible.
  • Use blast finishers in Fire Fields to generate Might Might
  • Use in to apply Vulnerability Vulnerability
  • Use long-cooldown skills, such as and , to proc
  • This build centers itself around maintaining several buffs in order to skyrocket its damage. These are , , , , , and . In order to accomplish this, you want to maximize uptime on Swiftness Swiftness, Weakness Weakness, and Burning Burning as well as typical offensive buffs (Vulnerability Vulnerability, Might Might, Fury Fury), using long-cooldown skills such as and to proc , and juggling double-attunements when possible. This can be a lot to take it at once, so go slow learning this build. It's very simple once you get the rhythm for it, but can be overwhelming at first.

Opener

Start in / . Use in . Fill any gaps with auto-attacks.

This opener is a somewhat simplified version of the standard Weave Self opener.

  1. (Make sure you're in combat first)
  2. - for
  3. Optional: to group enemies.
  4. (F/A)
  5. (F/F)
  6. - for
  7. (E/F)
  8. (F/E)
  9. (A/F)
  10. (A/A)
  11. (W/A - This completes )
  12. (F/W)
  13. - for
  14. (F/F)
  15. (A/F)

From here, use the loops below to determine a loose priority for skills.

If not using and 24px Weave Self, instead simply open on Dual-Air and follow the priorities below.

Priority Loops

After your opener, refer to the loose priority loops below. Use off cooldown, other than .

:

  1. - for

:

  1. - / Vulnerability Vulnerability
  2. Try not to interrupt auto-attack chains.

Double-attune to each element off cooldown, but never camp one attunement. Other strong skills you can use include:

Weave Self

There are two ways to use . To learn the full loop, review the raid build listed above for detailed information on the rotation, though note you may need to remove some auto-attacks from it if you lack Alacrity Alacrity due to the altered recharge.

For a simplified method of using , simply use the skill and then ensure you double-attune to both Fire Attunement Fire Attunement and Air Attunement Air Attunement as soon as possible. This doesn't grant you the full duration, but it does give you much higher damage for a period of time.

Alternatively, use instead. This is a small DPS loss but provides a huggable friend.

Defense

Crowd Control

  • - very good for grouping trash into your .
