Condition Scourge is a relatively easy build to learn but can be tricky to master due to a heavy requirement of management and placement. The key to mastery is understanding the prioritization of your skills and why they are ordered as such.

This build will underperform in situations where skills like or supportive effects like Barrier and condition cleanse cannot be utilized but shines in situations where ranged damage is needed. This is very clear when playing as a kiter at Sabetha.

The Breakbar damage that Condition Scourge offers is 400, most coming from Fear, but can be increased to 600 in a pinch by taking a Warhorn.

Condition Scourge is a beginner friendly build but can only reach its true potential at a few encounters. Learning the order of skill priority is very important to mastering this class.

  • Weapon Swap off cooldown.
  • Complete your Scepter auto attack chain, this mainly applies to the final chain attack - .
  • Use a punishment skill and place if you need to.

"Rotation" Explanation

There are three key parts of your arsenal that you need to keep in mind whilst in a fight:

  1. uptime.
  2. Punishment skills - .
  3. The skill combination.

If you continue to maintain these, you can use the rest of your abilities off cooldown with the above skill prioritization in mind. Furthermore, without a formal rotation you are "punished" less for retaining skills that are needed for a given situation, like saving for CC.
