Overview

Firebrand is an absolute powerhouse, and this build's use of Stoic Demeanor means that it remains extremely easy to play. Even as an LI build, this build is capable of outputting very high DPS.

What is LI?

LI stands for "Low-Intensity". LI builds are a class of builds that work to slow the game down drastically by using passive defense and builds that require very low input to function. These builds are designed primarily for players that have disabilities that may prevent them from playing higher intensity builds, though they are here for any player who wishes to play them.

LI builds function quite well on their own and are created to be equivalent to our General or Roaming build section. They typically do not output especially high DPS and focus on gear with passive defense
