    is the most efficient skill to use if you want quick access to Resistance Resistance, but also the most expensive one. Spamming Embrace the Darkness is a lot cheaper and allows the caster to maintain permanent Resistance, however the cast times won't allow for casting attack skills if you intend to chain EtD - the spamming method is better used for disengaging.
  • Good rotations, Shield skills and Regeneration Regeneration will often let you delay your healing skills for more dire situations, resulting in better sustain.

Counters

  • Getting Chain CC'd while in Mallyx stance
  • Heavy boon removal combined with high condi pressure.

Decent booning, good cc, mediocre sustain and underwhelming damage. Will most likely not be able to win 1vs1 against DPS-classes. Against bulkier opponents (like core necro), the fight will probably result in an never-ending battle.

Whiskeyblack221 gave this build 3 stars January 2021

Previous versions of this build have been much stronger. Swapping out sword and axe for staff is a bad move that weakens the build. Sticking with mace/axe and sword/shield allows for more consistent phases of burst and pressure. This build is still pretty good but it could definitely be better.

Hanz gave this build 5 stars December 2020

Looks like it's on the rise once again. Both the damage and the sustain are really solid, and of course the AoE Resistance can carry fights agains the burn DHs that are running around these days.

The best build for rev. Tanky and very good damage. In teamfight performs perfectly, with mallyx u can absorb conditions from allies and giving them back to enemies. + the boon sustain with glint. Amazing
