An excellent build in open world zergs with amazing cleave capabilities and powerful group support through banners. This build can also hold its own when alone, though it feels more like it's meant for group content.

Condi berserker is a alchemist build capable of transmuting ground into fire through force of sheer rage. Condi berserker has great burst thanks to the nature of burn, and the massive fire field created by longbow ensures that groups are no issue. Where CBerserker falls short is its ability to stay alive, most of the "healing" CBerserker has is preventative, because corpses cant deal damage. However, when a more powerful enemy appears, CBerserker struggles due to its lack of sustained healing. Great for most open world, struggles with some harder content, 4/5.
