Overview

A bursty condition build for open world, this spec offers the highest in-combat mobility in the game, tied with thief, along with extremely high burst damage and great sustained damage. It also has the advantage of not requiring high overall condi duration since it only applies Burning Burning, which gives more freedom on the overall gear options and cheaper budget variants.
