The Condi Firebrand

Only switch to your scepter set when your &BkytAAA= is ready or almost ready. The rest of the time you spend on axe.

The trait &BzcCAAA= will always give you a &BoEjAAA=. Ideally, you should activate this skill manually so that you get two charges of &BpAjAAA= with the passive proc. You can then throw these &BoEjAAA= at your opponent twice in a row. This makes the rotation much easier.

Be sure to use both &BoEjAAA= before opening your &BkytAAA= or have them long enough on cooldown so &BzcCAAA=does not to trigger while you are in the tome.

Support your subgroup with Quickness

Besides the Condi- you can also support your subgroup as DPS with .

There is the possibility that several can split the distribution of for their subgroup. Especially in encounters with multiple adds, the &BkytAAA= is reset by &BzsCAAA=, so that you can cope with the loss of &BsIjAAA= as you are able to distribute through &Bg11AAA=. In addition, &BzUIAAA= or &BtOfAAA= can create additional . The ideal distribution of these skills and traits depends, among other things, on the length of the individual boss phases as well as the composition of the other subgroup [support-? ? several ? For details on the builds for the different bosses, please see the corresponding team comps and class guides.

    The first 2 phases should be pretty short if your group has enough DPS. Therefore it’s not really worth it to use &BsIjAAA= because you lose DPS due to the cast time. For this reason it makes sense, if you don’t play with a Power- teamcomp but instead with a -teamcomp, to play 2 Condi-DPS- with &BzUIAAA= and &Bg11AAA= instead of a pure Condi-Quickness-.
