This build is a tagging build created exclusively for the purpose of rapidly tagging enemies in events such as The Mad King's Labyrinth, Lake Doric Leather Farm, or Specimen Chamber. It is not designed to participate in most open world events that require DPS to succeed, nor is it designed for any type of solo content. This is a niche build.


This is a renegade variant build which is designed exclusively for fast tagging in events that require it, such as Mad King's Labyrinth or the Lake Doric Leather Farm. While this build can perform well in general zergs, it may be better to take a look at Renegade - Power Bombardment or Renegade - Shortbow Renegade for more generalized open world variants.

By taking corruption, it is possible to make permanent thanks to the trait . This will slowly drain HP, however, so be sure to pair with Devastation for the passive healing.


Ascended gear and stat infusions are not required; you can use exotic gear with the same stats.

Superior Rune of Vampirism
  • Knight stat icon.png Knight's gear can be a great defensive option in tagging trains, though your damage will be extremely low.
  • Virtually any runes work with this build.


Event Farming

  • Any ascended food is superior to any other food you could use. Steak for power, flatbread for conditions.
  • - Use for general farming.
  • - Use for when you need to max out magic find.
  • - more sustain (requires crit chance)
  • Anything - Any food is better than none, but you should prioritize the food above before using any other food.
  • , , - general farming
  • - good damage option with +karma


This build is extremely simple to play. Use as often as possible while using to tag groups of mobs. Abuse tab-targetting to hit different groups; your autos will deal a small amount of area damage which is usually enough to recieve tagging credit so just one or two shots per group will be enough.

An extremely laid back tagging build which won't break your keyboard or your mouse buttons from constant spam. It can keep up with daredevil and mirage in terms of speed and has nearly as much tagging capability with more comfort.
