An very underestimated build. Good damage, amazing cc and incredible Support-Options. A must-have for every unorganized or less-experienced group. Even an good Beginner-option to start into raiding/strike missions. With the "new" trait "Dance of Death", it got access to an decent burst aswell.

This build sadly is only somewhat decent in bad pugs...You lack burst, and basically fill in the gaps with your boons which almost any other class can do. For the purpose of boon support, I'd rather run a heal herald since your spread out DPS is of little use if your squad is dropping like flies.

Very good build. Definitely easy to top the dps charts once you get the hang of it. One thing that bothers me about this guide is that it says it provides access to unless I'm blind, I dont see that being the case at all.

This build deals solid DPS with an easy rotation, and has fast access to CC. In disorganized groups that don't have a Chrono or Druid, it can also hard carry with the boons from Glint while still dealing very respectable personal DPS.

I would actually give this build a silver/gold rating, as the build is solid, but will never be meta in the current climate.


- Solid DPS (33,460)

- Simple rotation

- Provides Assassin's Presence

- Access to very powerful CC


- The build has little to no burst, negating the benefits of a power build

- The energy system makes it very hard to use extra skills

- The build is VERY reliant on quickness due to its reliance on Auto-attacking

- Swapping to Staff/using Jade Winds for CC is VERY large DPS loss

- Reliant on boons for DPS

In relation to the other Power DPS in this DPS tier: Holosmith, Dragonhunter, and Soulbeast, you'll have a much harder time being taken seriously and thus getting into groups. In terms of Revenant DPS, there isn't really a point in gearing this up as Condi Renegade is simply better.

TL;DR This build is solid, but when compared to other builds, it's subpar.

Deals acceptable DPS with a simple rotation while also bringing team support in the form of Assassin's presence with no DPS tradeoff (unlike condi renegade). Can also output strong CC in a pinch with staff skills and Jade Wind + Forced Engagement.

All in all a great build that has re-emerged from years of mediocrity thanks to a gradual buffs finally pushing it over the threshold of playability.
