  • Upon entering combat, carefully select a target and begin auto-attacking to build up adrenaline (Use a Furious Spear/Bow or a Wand to gain adrenaline when you can't get too close).

  • Body Blow can also function as a second Deep Wound attack skill if your target is affected by Cracked Armor.
  • Use Frenzy to spike faster and/or increase the amount of pressure you're putting out.
  • Use Rush to chase kiting foes, cancel Frenzy, or as a simple movement speed buff.
  • Use Disrupting Chop at opportune moments to interrupt and disable skills (for example, use it as a Monk recovers from a knockdown).
  • Swap to appropriate weapon sets as necessary (Ebon when attacking another Warrior, etc.)
  • Resurrect allies when necessary.


  • Body Blow can be replaced by Executioner's Strike, or alternatively Dismember to have more sources of Deep Wound (use with Agonizing Chop and Prot Strike variants).
  • You can switch out Disrupting Chop for Agonizing Chop.
  • Death Pact can be taken over the Res in GvG/HA for a hard res.
