Warming Hearth gave this build 4 stars • June 2022
Very easy to play, very good burst, but no sustain without significant changes to the build that would massively reduce the damage.
4 stars
Pewpewpewpapapa gave this build 4 stars • March 2022
A very fun and powerful build. DPS is definitely sufficient and I'm able to push out 23k DPS consistently without having min maxing rotations. This build however does have some problem with survivability, making rune of durability much more ideal for my game play.
