Virtuoso - Condition Virtuoso
The community gave this build a rating, making it top-tier: Great
Focused on: Condition damage
Condition virtuoso is a powerful ranged condition dps build for open world where the lack of clone setup requirements and persistent blade stacks make it more friendly to general open world play.
This build inflicts enormous ammounts of bleeding damage through critical hits while generating lots of Blades to use Bladesongs essentially off-cooldown. It is quite simple, yet effective, but very dependent on having the right gear.
- None. Dagger is a must and cannot be substituted by any other weapon. We advise not to change the offhand weapons either since this build prefers phantasms that attack multiple times, making sword and focus better than the traditional condi offhands torch and pistol.
- - very large heal, especially when used with maximun stocked blades, but less damage.
- - valuable stunbreak.
- - condition cleanse.
