Equipment Changes



Sigil of Absorption is taken because of the spammable nature of . There are other on-interrupt sigils that are also viable options:

  • - better Might stacking benefits both types of damage in the build.
  • - the armor ignoring life steal can boost both your damage and sustain.

Elite specialization basics

  • Dodge rolling is replaced by Mirage Cloak, which is more or less the same thing but allows you to cast skills and grants access to ambush attacks over its duration: for Axe and for Sword. Ambush skills replace the autoattack of the weapons for 1.5 seconds.
  • You can dodge while casting skills or CC'd, but only have one dodge bar.


  • Try to send your Phantasms on CD before using as your healing skill partially recharges them.
  • Aim to either have no endurance, or low endurance right before swapping weapons. Both sets have a which refills your entire endurance bar, so let's not waste it.


  • Conditions shouldn't pose a threat to this build:
    • Weapon swapping removes 3 conditions via .
    • Dodge rolling removes 2 conditions thanks to .
    • is your mass cleanse, removing a total of 5 conditions with .
    • Due to Phantasms take 1 condition from you when summoned.
    • removes another one when you use your healing skill.
    • Last but not least, is another source of cleansing.
  • Every signet grants , and Distortion reflects projectiles. is the best defensive skill in the build by far, being an instant source of stealth, stun break, condition removal and even distortion.
  • is an excellent panic button and mobility tool that instantly yeets you across the battlefield whilst breaking stuns.
  • Your strongest option against damage in general is , granting you immunity to any form of pressure including CC and conditions that are already on you.


  • Use whenever you need to disengage of close the gap, it's an excellent mobility skill and not just an interrupt.


  • Axe/Pistol is the primary offensive set while Sword/Torch is a bit more defensive.
  • is the strongest shatter skill here when it comes to damage, followed by .
  • Don't be afraid to use if you need to keep the pressure up but you're all out of shatters. This signet also lets you be a bit more wasteful of your shatters, knowing that you can recharge them anytime.
