Equipment Variants

Relic

Usage

Elite specialization mechanics

  • Quickness Quickness generated from , , is what makes this build works paired with Axe Auto and will cause massive Burn Burn. Unless the enemy is just standing still, it will be hard to do this so this where your other skills comes.
  • is a must as this will enable you to do more burns even your passive is on cooldown.


Set-up

  • Start in your mace and shield weapon set.
  • Make sure you have and charged up.


Combo

  • Once you find an opening that's when you use then use right away as its a very fast animation. If you successfully pull the enemy in, immediately follow up with and while the enemy is mid way.
  • When they are in front of you start using 2 charges of and at the same time while pressing axe auto and sending from torch skill.
  • By then the enemy will be likely be using a long blocking skills such as or a disengage, you will want to wait to use the last charge of the mantra.
  • If everything lines up. Spam only using your axe auto attack + + Searing Slash which stacks tons of Burn Burn and minor Bleeding Bleeding
  • If everything lands and don't address the burn with cleanses the enemy will be dead in about 2 seconds.
  • For against tanky builds or if you feel like it, you can use + Chapter 4 Scorched Aftermath Chapter 4 Scorched Aftermath at the end of the enemy blocks or before pulling in with the combo.


Survival

  • Once your done with the combo switch to mace as soon as possible as this will help you survive and sustain before the next combo.
  • Try to survive as much as you can as your combo cooldown lines up to about 30 seconds.
  • By Utilizing all your Aegis Aegis heals you. Skills such as , , , and Epilogue Unbroken Lines Epilogue Unbroken Lines. Just make sure to stagger them a few seconds to have as much of the heal amount.
  • Don't be afraid to use + Chapter 2 Radiant Recovery Chapter 2 Radiant Recovery for a quick 2 condition cleanse + heal as it only cost 1 page and low cooldown.
  • For ranged opponents or classes with lots of projectile, + Chapter 3 Valiant Bulwark Chapter 3 Valiant Bulwark to start is a must for survival. Due to the massive reflect bubble, this can reflect projectile damage back to the opponent. The only downside to this is it does not reflect Unblockable Unblockable
  • + Chapter 4 Stalwart Stand is another Stun Break.
  • I found that while using + Chapter 4 Scorched Aftermath Chapter 4 Scorched Aftermath for pressure relief while charging and works well as most players don't want to stand in fire.
  • If the enemy is ranged, use terrain to block your line of sight while charging and .
  • You can also use to charge up and quickly if you are in a pinch.

I will be adding more info soon.

Pretty fun build! I play a similar version with scepter/shield axe/focus. I also take absolute resolve and more pages. This way you have some more condi cleanse, and some pretty good ranged burn! Def need to use terrain with this as you're still very squishy but whenever someone gets close you should have the upper hand.

High damage but no coverage, heasily beat by build with minimal cleansing. Hard to fight against long range player. Not good for 1v1, may be Ok to play in unrank with for fun but i strongly advise to not play it in ranked. It'd be good if Anet could do something for firebrand whom's basically the worst class existing since years in PvP
