Usage

Damage

The opener for this build is where most of the damage comes from.

  1. Pull enemies close with or
  2. Weapon Swap

From there, fill empty space with auto-attacks and try to follow a similar loop to above. Avoid placing or right before entering , as this will override the chill field from and lower DPS by a large amount.

Defense

This build is amazing at trash farming due to its large amounts of Chill Chill and Blind Blind, two conditions that debilitate non-defiant foes.

In this build's current state it works well for general play in open world. The burst damage is quite high for a condition build, and the DPS is pretty good. My biggest complaint is how field priority works, but this isn't a huge issue when farming alone.
