Specializations

  • Thrill of Combat / Dance of Death - lower dps in exchange for sustain, might be worth on very few fights with extreme pressure like Boneskinner.

Utility


Usage

Quickness

You apply Quickness Quickness through the trait Elevated Compassion. This pulses healing and Quickness Quickness whenever you are using upkeep energy of six or above. Fortunately, all of your non-Legendary Dragon Stance legends have a skill that uses exactly six. Thus while in these legends you want to maintain the skill in question for almost the entire time. Glint is a little trickier as all the skills use upkeep. Which is why Legendary Assassin Stance and Legendary Dwarf Stance is used


Legends

  • Legendary Assassin Stance provides the highest personal DPS through Impossible Odds.
  • Legendary Dwarf Stance You can provide Stability Stability through Inspiring Reinforcement, CC through Forced Engagement.
  • Legendary Centaur Stance is an extremely niche option. It is a massive DPS loss that should only be taken if your group desperately needs projectile block through Protective Solace.


Usage

Opener

  • Start on Shiro with Impossible Odds
  1. Chilling Isolation
  2. Shackling Wave
  3. when energy gets low swap to Legendary Dwarf Stance
  4. Vengeful Hammers


Rotation concept

Use Chilling Isolation and Shackling Wave off cooldown. Try to stay in Legendary Assassin Stance until your energy gets low then swap to Legendary Dwarf Stance, Remember to ativate the upkeep skill when you swap. When you are in Legendary Dwarf Stance try to swap back to Legendary Assassin Stance as soon as possible for better dps uptime.

I don’t understand the reason for this LI build. Running Glint, you just activate Facet of Chaos (eilite) and then Facet of Darkness (provides fury). That gives you 6 pips for Quickness generation. This also gives you an on call stun break by consuming (clicking the skill again) Facet of Darkness. You can then use Facet of Nature to generate the 2 pips needed that Facet of Darkness was providing. You will give your party full Fury and Protection up time. You also can use and consume both Facets of Elements and Facet of Strength (Strength gives +10% damage and can be consumed twice in between legend swaps if alac and fast) for damage. Use sword 4 and 5 once per legend swap and Sword 2 off cool down. With that you’re already close to full rotation in the regular build. If there is a niche where someone needs only to press 1 button for quick on both legend swaps then this will be perfectly viable. I would just recommend running Glint and Dwarf Legends as your first build.
