Rotation Concept

  • Cycle through Attunements: while using most Hammer skills.
  • Cast Jade Spheres (F5) on allies to upkeep Quickness and all your complementary boons. Try to cleave enemies while you're at it.
  • The rotation maintains by completing Combos and Disabling or Immobilizing enemies to gain bonus attributes.

Jade Sphere Usage

  • Jade Spheres are instant-cast and require Energy, a resource gained by hitting enemies. Make sure to constantly attack as often as allowed, and try to cleave where possible.
  • Energy cannot be generated while a Jade Sphere is active. During the loop, pair the Spheres to minimise this timeframe, and recharge in between.

Attunements can be swapped while casting skills. Use this to save time and perform the loop faster.

Notes

Hammer Orbs will disappear if you mount up or Swap Weapons.

Use in a Combo Field before a phase starts for stacks.

  • for decent passive Healing.
  • for a high ticking Heal and Condition Cleanse.

Replace with for more Defiance Break.
