Greatsword
Dagger/Axe
Utility


Hammer Variant

You can swap out Greatsword in favour of Hammer for a huge boost to CC. Note that you need to run different gear with Hammer (see below).


Skill Variants

Healing

  • If you are able to start the boss with full adrenaline (e.g. if there is a pre-event), you can use Mending to gain some initial burst from triggering Peak Performance.


Utility

Only Banner of Tactics is vital, you can freely choose the other two banners you bring based on what you need:

  • Banner of Strength is the smallest DPS loss to cast, provides Might Might and some CC. Ideally you want to keep this skill as it also provides a stack of Attacker's Insight.
  • Banner of Discipline is the second smallest DPS loss to cast, and provides permanent Fury Fury.
  • Banner of Defense provides permanent Regeneration Regeneration as well as Aegis Aegis and some Barrier.

General Tips

  • In reality you can use your banners whenever convenient, as long as you don't drop Quickness Quickness.
    • Try not to delay your burst skills though, as they bookend each section and delaying them would slow the whole rotation down.
