Overview

A power boon support build that provides permanent Alacrity Alacrity, permanent Fury Fury and ~20 stacks of Might Might.

Unfortunately, this build is reliant on being able to hit a target to generate Alacrity Alacrity. It also relies on Virtues to do competitive damage, thus it must maintain high health and Aegis Aegis uptime on itself for Unscathed Contender. This makes Alacrity Willbender is a rather niche pick.

Weapon Variants

  • Players that own Secrets of the Obscure can run Longbow instead of Sword/Focus, this is a small DPS loss but has better ranged potential.

  • Bring Heaven's Palm if you need CC.

General Tips

  1. Cast Shield of Wrath and Ray of Judgment off cooldown.
  2. Use Binding Blade to fill in gaps where you don't have time for a full auto chain.
  3. You can adjust where you use Sword of Justice depending on whether you want to focus on DPS or Alacrity Alacrity by using it before Rushing Justice or Flowing Resolve respectively. Make sure you do not end up compromising your Alacrity Alacrity uptime though!

Very fun, pretty viable, obviously not meta but decent enough. Engaging alac generation mechanic, so it actually requires some brainpower, which makes it fun

Not useful or viable in instanced content rn. Alac is hard to maintain dps is low and it offers very little utility. Would not reccomend at all and most groups will ask you to switch
