  • Sundering Hammer of Fortitude with +5 Energy
  • High Energy Set Staff (Can be kept in inventory, use when you have max/close to maximum DP)
  • +5 Energy Sword of Fortitude/Heal Set Shield
  • Rune of Clarity

Usage Edit

  • Pre-set EW at the start of every match.
  • Select target, and begin gaining adrenaline
  • When charged, use Hammer Bash < Crushing Blow < Bestial Mauling to inflict a KD/DW/ and Daze.
  • Target swap when necessary.
  • Defensively-train, when necessary.
  • Resurrect Allies when necessary.

Counters Edit

  • Standard Anti-melee Counters

Role in Team Edit

Equipment Edit

Usage Edit

  • Cast Spirits (After EW has been placed)
  • Use Tainted Flesh in synergy with Rotting Flesh, to create mass amounts of Degen-pressure to the other team. Coordinate with your frontline, to spread disease to all targets, via the pet.
  • Cast Rising Bile on selected target, and make sure that it is covered by PB (Coordinate through vent to do this, or simply call it). Further instructions below.
  • Heal Party Members when necessary, through the use of MBaS and Spirit Light.
  • Resurrect Allies when necessary. Make sure to coordinate with your team, when doing so.

  • 8 shields with +30 HP; 7 with different armor mods (Fire, Lightning, Cold, Earth, Piercing, Slashing, Blunt) and extend Crip duration 33% (Sword) offhands.

Usage Edit

  • ZB acts as a energy efficient Boon-heal.
  • RoF is your main heal, use it to counter a spike, and or as a general all purpose heal.
  • Dismiss Condition to remove conditions.
  • Use SB to counter more powerful spikes.
  • SoD+DH as both a free-heal, and a powerful source of hex removal.
  • Use Return to escape from troublesome frontliners. It can also be used to snare opposing monks/midliners. Remember to coordinate the Return, through vent and to weapon swap when doing so to your 33% crip offhand.

Counters Edit

  • Standard Anti-caster Counters
  • Heal-overlap

Variants Edit

Depends on your preference really. Most prefer to run ZB in TA however.
