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. 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.

Equipment

  • This is the default build and should be used if you have a in the squad that covers for the entire squad and you only need to worry about the in your own subgroup (5 players). This build must be played with &B+YHAAA=.

    The &AgGptgAA can be exchanged with a &AgGqtgAA. You should play with &B64CAAA= when you play with &AgGqtgAA. If you need more boonduration, you can play with &AgGTGgEA.

  • The choice of the boon duration depends on the personal experience and the boss. If you are not sure, you should always use 100% boon duration. If you notice that your boons lasts much longer than necessary, you can play with less boon duration to increase your personal damage.
    If you do not need to give because it is covered by other classes, you can greatly reduce your boonduration because &B+YHAAA= can generate a lot of .
    You can find more information about the boon duration for the different bosses in the Boss Guides.

    For more personal DPS you can replace the focus or shield with &AgG2tgAA.
    At the same time, &B+8CAAA= should be replaced with &B+QCAAA=.

  • If you play with &AgHjYAAA, the duration of will increase and thus your CC. Especially if you use &BtwnAAA= with &BtwnAAA=, this is a very strong CC build. In return, however, you will lose 15% boon uptime from &AgF+YAAA and regular boons. So make sure that you can cover with other sources.

    The choice of boon duration for this build depends heavily on the boss and personal experience. However, at 50%, you should have no problem maintaining your boons. If you do not need to give because it is covered by other classes, you can greatly reduce your boonduration because &B+YHAAA= can generate a lot of . For more information on when you can go down with the boon duration, please see the class guides.

    For more personal DPS, you can replace the focus with &AgG2tgAA.
    At the same time, &B+8CAAA= should be replaced with &B+QCAAA=.

Skills

  • This build can be played if the does not need to give to its group.

    This build massively increases the ‘s personal damage. However, you loose &B/ACAAA=, so you can no longer extend the boons of the entire squad.

    However, if you need to give and extend the boons of the other subgroup, you will be forced to play with .

  • The choice between and depends on two factors. First, the boss and second, your own build must be considered.

    If you don’t need to give , you can replace &BopzAAA= and &BqB0AAA= with &BhsoAAA= and &BuMnAAA=. If you need more clones you can play with &BtonAAA= instead of &BuMnAAA=.

    Dependence on the Boss
    You should always play Dominance when the boss has no boons for most of the fight. For bosses without boons, Dominance and &B6kCAAA= will cause more DPS than Dueling.
    If the boss creates boons at regular intervals, the &B6kCAAA= damage increase is less severe. In this case, you should play Dueling for higher DPS. An example of a boss that creates boons is without stability. For more details see the Boss Guides.

    Build dependency
    Dominance offers minimally more DPS than Dueling. Note, however, that Dueling has reduced sword cooldowns due to &B8QCAAA=, which means more clones are produced. &B+YHAAA= will produce a minimum of more clones with Dueling . Dueling is also suitable for personal through the trait &B8MCAAA=.

  • You should play with if you want to use &BoZ0AAA= often combined with &BkcoAAA=. In general, this is always useful if you don’t have the possibility to get for your group before a burn phase.

    For example, the reduced cooldown of &BoZ0AAA= by &B9sCAAA= allows you to use &BkcoAAA= for in each burn phase. Since is covered for the burn phase, you can also play with less boon duration overall.

    If you don’t need to give , you can replace &BopzAAA= and &BqB0AAA= with &BhsoAAA= and &BuMnAAA=. If you need more clones you can play with &BtonAAA= instead of &BuMnAAA=.

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=.
