Key Concepts

  • Quickly rotate through Attunements to upkeep and generate Energy for your Jade Spheres. A full rotation should take about 20 seconds.
  • Generate tons of boons for , many of which can be shared to a group. Generate boons by:
    • Switching Attunements via and .
    • Deploying Jade Spheres via and .
    • Use Finishers in the Combo Fields of your Jade Spheres.
  • Maximize stacks and uptime for even more damage. Gain stacks passively every 15 seconds, using Combos via , and CCing or immobilising an enemy via .
  • Deploy Jade Spheres two at time since you cannot gain Energy while a sphere is deployed. You need 10 Energy per Jade Spheres and gain it by striking enemies.

Dealing Damage

  • Cycle between Attunements quickly, never spending more time than needed in any one. Every other Attunements, use Jade Spheres before and after the swap. A suggested flow is:

      • Auto Attack as needed to have enough Energy for Jade Spheres.
  • Before tougher encounters, fill up your Energy on easier enemies and cast all 4 of your Hammer Orbs. Then use in and wait about 10 seconds before engaging in .

  • In every Attunement use:

    • Hammer 3 and 5 to create a Hammer Orb and Combo Finisher respectively.
    • Hammer 4 in every Attunement except .
    • Hammer 2 and swap to the next Attunement, deploying Jade Spheres as appropriate.
  • Use these skills in the respective Attunement:

    • In use and Hammer 3 again for .
    • In use (if taken).
  • Use in to inflict Vulnerability or for Blind.

  • Use in , as well as off Cooldown.

    • provides Healing.
    • reduces Strike Damage.
    • reduces Condition Damage.
    • pulses Weakness.
  • Auras will help negate damage, specifically Magnetic Aura and Frost Aura.
  • Using in provides you with a personal, high-health tank. Use off Cooldown.
