Still a strong build overall. Good defensive and high damage output. Great team support.

Xivor gave this build 5 stars April 2017

Strong and synergizes well with shout-chill necros running epidemic. Brings condition pressure to the frontline, along with strong boon stripping ability (if running Corruption). Good CC ability and group support with damage reduction, stability, and resistance. Require watchful energy management skills. Biggest con is self preservation when focused if energy levels are low.

Arete gave this build 5 stars February 2017

Incredibly strong build with excellent defensive stats and high damage output. Combos very well with condition necros epidemic. No other condition build can bring the type of team support that revenant has available.
