Power DPS Reaper-Overview

Difficulty to learn

Under ideal buff cover, the Reaper does little damage compared to other classes and is therefore not currently played by speedrun groups.

But that shoudln’t hide the fact that a well played Reaper does good damage especially in groups with bad buff coverage, low healing or inexperienced players.

Furthermore, a Reaper can bring a lot of – damage (especially ), , boon removal or resurrection for little DPS loss and thus be a massive support for the team in many places.

Equipment

  • The gear for the Reaper is quite unusual because it does not have a 100% crit chance and the two weapon sets have very different crit chances. This is due to &B30DAAA=. Because of the trait, a balance must be struck between crit chance for normal attacks and damage in the shroud. In this case the average damage on greatsword is sacrificed for the benefit of the shroud.

Skills

  • The standard build for the Reaper.

    Some skills can be customized according to the situation.

  • Utility Skills

    Optional Utility Skills

    If your team needs a lot of pull or breakbar-damage for example for Slothasor or Samarog, this ability can be used.

    This helper should be used especially for bosses with short damage phases, e.g. Qadim or Keep Construct. As a side effect it removes boons which is useful for Qadim ( and ).

    The Lich form can also be used during short damage phases for &BowpAAA= before the boss becomes vulnerable.

    This healing skill can quickly revive your stricken allies.

    This Ability will heal you passivley like the &BjMpAAA= but unlike it it is only active outside of the shroud. In exchnage it is independent of the survival of your minion.

    Tips

    &BjIpAAA=, &Bm8pAAA=, &Bix0AAA= and &Bp90AAA= all have the same cooldown and determine the loop of your rotation. When watching the video you will understand why you do specific numbers of autoattacks in the shroud, to line up the cooldowns.
    Please note that the aftercast of &Bix0AAA= must be aborted. This can either be done as described in the opener by &Bp90AAA=, and &Bkh4AAA=. The written rotation states the usual order of skills for every case.

    If the opponent falls <50% of his life, steps 1-3 and 16-18 are replaced by ~6/7 of &BtN1AAA=. Also below 50% you can conserve lifeforce by ending your shroud after only 5 autoattack chanins and making up the time difference with more &BtN1AAA=. With a little practice you can abbreviate the aftercast of &BtN1AAA= with “Weapon Stow” and use only between ~1100 and ~1250ms instead of the usual ~1330ms.

    It is important that you always make at least 5 (most of the time 6/7, 5 below 50%) whole autoattack-chains (occasionally 6 see video) in the &Bkh4AAA=, as these will reduce the cooldown of &Bih3AAA= to below 10 seconds, so you will have it ready the next time you enter the shroud.
