Power Support Chronomancer-Overview

Difficulty to learn

The is a very strong and versatile build.
It can distribute the boons and permanently to 5 people. Moreover, he can provide to 10 players. However, it is more common that it it only provides while is provided by different classes like or . He can use &BvwnAAA= to extend existing boons. Passively, he can also use this signet to distribute to 5 players.

Besides the actual role of distributing boons, the should also play special boss mechanics. This allows the DPS players to focus on their damage.
For this reason, this role has a relatively high learning curve and requires advanced knowledge of the mechanics of each boss.

  • This build generates for 10 players. However, the needs to be in his own subgroup to do so.

    Thanks to &BvwnAAA= all the boons are extended, thus you sources need less boon duration.

    This build brings a lot of damage due to the effect of &AgHjYAAA and &AgE/YAAA. Therefore, it is ideal for fight in which a lot of damage is required.

  • This build trivializes tanking a lot, thus it should only be used by newbies to tanking or on encounters where there is a lot of damage going around, such as challenge mode.

    Instead of &AgG1HwEA you can also use &AgFEKQEA, &AgEZYQAA or &AgHLSAEA depending on your personal preference.

    Since this build is using you will cap boon duration at 100%if you have on yourself.

Skills

  • This build is the ideal build if you are running the 0% or 10% builds with either Greatsword or Focus.

  • This is the go-to build for both the 100% 10man builds as well as the 50% boon durationĀ build. You want to run this build when there are no boons on the boss, if you are also running a Greatsword or if you need the boon removal from &B7UCAAA=.

  • These traits are a variation of the Traits. should only be used if the Boss has boons during the fight, if you are not playing Greatsword and if you do not need the boon removal that brings.

  • These traits are a variation of the Traits. should be played if you want to use &BoZ0AAA= more frequently. In general, this is always useful if you don’t have the possibility to generate for your group before a burn phase.

  • These Traits should only be played if you are running the Tank Build.

Rotation

  • In general, there is no rotation that you have to follow. However, there are some things you should keep in mind.

  • Basic Idea

    The boon skills

    • &BrN3AAA=
    • &BkcoAAA=
    • &BqB0AAA=
    • &BvwnAAA=
    • &Bl54AAA=

    should preferably be used in your &BoZ0AAA=. It’s okay to wait a few seconds for these skills to come off cooldown before going back to your &BoZ0AAA=.

    After the opener, try to keep the boon skills on hold, with the exception of &BkcoAAA=. For certain bosses, however, it may be useful to delay the &BvwnAAA= for a group block. If &BoZ0AAA= is ready again, the opener should be executed again.

    As a filler, you should always keep &Br0nAAA= on cooldown to get an extra clone. Depending on which weapon you are playing with, you should also keep your phantasms, such as &BiooAAA= on cooldown. Also use &BvZUAAA= to double cast phantasms. Phantasms in general increase your DPS. But be aware of the side effects of phantasms.

    If you play with the trait &B+YHAAA=, phantasms will also indirectly . After the end of a phantasm you will get a clone which you can shatter for group’s and personal .
    You should always shatter 3 clones and use &BmLeAAA= or &BineAAA= if possible.

    Possible Opener
    1. &Br0nAAA= (In fight)
    2. &BoZ0AAA= during &BrN3AAA=
    3. &BkcoAAA=
    4. &BqB0AAA=
    5. &BvwnAAA=
    6. &Bl54AAA= (if equipped)
    7. &Bht4AAA=
    8. &BrN3AAA=
    9. &BqB0AAA=
    10. &Bl54AAA=
    11. &BvwnAAA=

    This opener requires a very fast execution, but can be created with one clone. In general, however, all following splits should be done with 2 clones.

    Rotation Video
    Tips

    You should always put your wells on the team and on yourself so that both sides get the boons. When in doubt, however, the team is more important than yourself.
    Your DPS is third rate! First try to perform mechanics and boons in an optimal way. DPS comes afterwards.

    If you know the attacks and mechanics of a boss, you should block/distort them if possible. For this purpose use above all:

    • &Bl4oAAA=
    • &BigoAAA=
    • &BjF4AAA= or &BtFzAAA=

    Alternatively, you can use &BvZUAAA= or &BvwnAAA= as they will give you distortion due to the &B/ACAAA= trait. If you get distortion, use &BzwHAAA= to distribute to your group. Ideally, use this to block attacks for your group.

    If there is a support in your squad, it will distribute for 10 players. Thus your &BqB0AAA= is unnecessary. Instead, you can take &BopzAAA= with you to use &BvwnAAA= twice. Note, however, that &BopzAAA= is not recharged by &BoZ0AAA=.
