Overview

Condition Quickness Firebrand is going to be your alternative to Support Chronomancer for both Firebrigade and Hybrid compositions. Boasting moderate damage and consistent applications of Quickness, Aegis, and Fury, Condition Quickness Firebrand can stay a competitive option for all skill levels.

This build is best paired with an Alacrigade, as you will not be able to replace a Support Chronomancer 1:1. While you will lose a Support Chronomancer's normal utility, you gain unique Firebrand utility via your Tome skills which can greatly aid a squad in high pressure situations.

There are three different variants of Condition Quickness Firebrand to choose from for various situations, a great ‘default’ build though will be the Viper's variant for high damage, safe amounts of Boon Duration, and great scaling with adds thanks to and .
