The Boon- is a very special build that is only playable on a few bosses, but can be very strong on those bosses! Using the &BvfWAAA= skill the Boon- can distribute all boons (except ) to the entire group. With a little practice they can do this permanently!
The difference between the Boon- and the Boon- is that the Boon- can only maintain boons like and for a certain amount of time. This means that if you can’t pre-steal (i.e. you start the boss and already have 2 loads of on your F2) and generally don’t have high group dps you should rather play Boon-.
The skill is obtained by your F1 skill &BvfWAAA=.
This skill allows you to distribute every boon in the game (except ) to your group for a certain amount of time!
These boons scale with boon duration! This allows you to keep boons on your group permanently.
However, not every boss gives you this skill, so this build is only playable on bosses that give you .
The following bosses will give you :
This sounds like a lot, but a Boon- is rather useless for some of these bosses.
The Boon- counts, besides the stolen skill , on an important trait:
Without this trait, the build as presented here would not work!
&B48EAAA= doubles the number of stolen skills per steal This means you can use twice instead of just once! Furthermore, this trait also resets a random skill! This can often be very useful.
If you’re on a very quick boss such as and you need to use the &B4UEAAA= and &B4YEAAA= traits to maintain , you can play
Take into consideration that you get a lot of critical strike chance through “Critical Strikes”. You will need to adjust your equipment to get the most out of it.
The Boon- is almost exactly played like the staff , so in order to get the most damage possible you should control the rotation of the staff . Therefore I ask you to read the staff--Guide to get a complete overview.
You can play with two different staffs and always switch back and forth so that you can use on the staff with &AgGTGgEA and then do more damage with the other staff.
Try to use only 3x at the beginning and save 1x until just before you can use &BvfWAAA= again. This way you can always use 3x which will keep your at 25 stacks and not just 20.
