Overview

Condition Firebrand provides decent burst DPS in the form of Burning.

This build provides extremely high power burst, in addition to Condition Damage. This makes it an extremely versatile build that can be used on both condition and power oriented encounters.

This class is a good base for new players and also provides the possibility to swap easily to a power DPS class through Power Dragonhunter. The rotation is easy enough to be picked up quickly by new players or simply by people who are new to this class.
