This build is simply incredible, provides a lot of damage, great control of the area and being a guardian, provides a huge help to your groupmates, making it a great way.
In the beginning of the guide there is a mention ''On fights where you are confident in maintaining Aegis for Unscathed Contender, consider running Virtues instead of Zeal.'', but in the middle of the article there is a phrase ''Bring Virtues instead of Radiance if you are confident Aegis can be maintained for Unscathed Contender''. So, what tree should i drop for the purposes of aegis build?
Also, there is no any tip of capping 100% crit chance in fractals, which is probably can be done with decent ammount of AR without Radiance tree at all. Any suggestions about that?
Extremely strong DPS with high burst, solid sustained damage, and excellent utility, both in-built and optional, as well as solid CC, an extremely large positive in a post 11/12-patch world. You really can't go wrong with Power Dragonhunter on the vast majority of fights that favour burst.
High burst DPS and strong sustained DPS across all size hitboxes. Also capable of providing defensive support at little to no DPS loss
An excellent, beginner friendly, burst DPS class for dungeons and fractals. It brings a lot of utility to cover common weaknesses in pug groups, and also performs well in raids.
The changes to Big Game Hunter last patch increased 10% damage from your burst phases, actually a bit more because of the increased time on tether duration. A very strong pick if you want something durable and effective...as long as you have fingers.
Sadly the DH isn't what it was, the dps can reach 32k,34k with all boons and perfect rotation... Nothing compared with the good old days.
I would suggest to use the cond FB instead but the problem is there aren't much cond-dps groups out there to max your own performance. In LFG the majority of People expect the zerk-dps builds... So they will doubt about you. Use FB only with condition formed groups or friends groups.
Use the DH build to fit with random people in LFG tool to complete the dailies fast... but if you looking for a real DPS-zerk build in a serious way... try other profession
With the alacrity nerf of the February balance patch, this build is no longer viable or justifiable as a DPS slot. Its damage has fallen down to a pitiful 30k dps and its utility pales in comparison to the higher DPS Holosmith in any variant. For groups learning raids it might be justifiable however its simple rotation will prevent any actual learning.
This build's greatest strength lies in the utility and versatility that it brings to a raid composition; it can be made capable of reflecting, blocking, pulling, dealing ranged damage, or performing a myriad of other useful functions. On top of all that, it deals less, but still comparable DPS compared with other DPS builds. I would recommend this build for any DPS player that wants to support their team in other ways as well.
