Designed for: Raids

This build was last updated on July 30, 2022 and is up to date for the August 23, 2022 game patch.

Overview

Condi variant of Daredevil - Boon Daredevil. This raid build provides 100% uptime on Might Might, Quickness Quickness, Fury Fury, Protection Protection, Regeneration Regeneration, Vigor Vigor, Resolution Resolution and very high uptimes on Stability Stability, Aegis Aegis and Resistance Resistance.

Boon Daredevil only functions on bosses that provide Detonate Plasma Detonate Plasma. Compared to power, this build provides more DPS, but due to its high ramp-up time it's best used on raid bosses with no phases.

Thus, it is likely you will only run it at Matthias Gabrel or Mursaat Overseer.

Equipment Variants

  • can be swapped for a for more reliable boon uptimes. You could also use as a budget option for a minor DPS loss.
  • Pistol is only taken to provide additional CC at Matthias.
  • Celestial stats Celestial stats can be taken instead of Ritualist stats Ritualist stats for a small loss of efficiency if you have greater access to it, as ritualist trinkets especially can be difficult to come by without legendaries. Note: Celestial gear will increase your toughness, but as this build is mostly viable at bosses without toughness tanking, it is largely a non-issue.

Stronger than the power version at Matthias, where the wide-area boon application and stability are valuable. But unless you really want detonate plasma, it will fall behind firebrand or chrono in dps and doesn't offer any particular utility.
