Hi, I'm Marcus. I like PvE theorycrafting and the excessive use of spreadsheets for things one probably should not have used spreadsheets for.

Ping me in the Metabattle Discord (Marcus#5467) or PM me if you have questions!

  • Variants with 18 concentration infusions are best-in-slot, but do not cap boon duration without infusions. Variants that cap boon duration without them are provided for players without infusions (or who use
    Mighty WvW Infusion Mighty WvW Infusion
    Mighty WvW Infusion.pngMighty WvW Infusion
    +5 Power +1% Damage to Guards, Lords, and Supervisors
    ).
  • builds are generally recommended because they give 10% more duration on all boons shared by besides quickness, but they do a very, very small amount less personal damage and may be harder to obtain than .


Variants: 100% quickness duration is not necessary to upkeep permanent quickness on a tightly-stacked group. The required quickness duration is dependent on trait setup, fight length, tricks like staggering between two chronomancers, etc. These variants are shown as examples.

With a perfect rotation, this is sufficient to keep up permanent quickness using Dueling/Illusions and without relying on the other chronomancer. [insert kWZ6bU5gDFA youtube link later]

Below ~67% target boon duration, use and fill boon duration with concentration infusions and Harrier's equipment.

Healing +5 Agony Infusion
Has the highest possible healing output and survivability, but outputs slightly less boons when the concentration sigil goes out of sync due to reacting to mechanics. Be aware that having high toughness on bosses with toughness aggro can make you the tank.
