General Daredevil Tips

Use your only while Conjured Amalgamate's main body is vulnerable. Using it on Arms is a waste.

Your DPS on the Arms doesn't matter since you won't one phase it and it will definitely die in the second burn as people use their Swords.

Stealing from Conjured Shields gives you Throw Magnetic Bomb. This is why Power Daredevil surpasses Power Deadeye here so make sure to do it and save it for when Conjured Amalgamate is vulnerable. The Conjured Greatswords provide you with Unstable Artifact as a Stolen Skill which is fairly useless for this encounter.

Start your burst on Arm before it goes up and don't do it a second time. Save it for after, when Conjured Amalgamate's main body is vulnerable.

Once Conjured Amalgamate is vulnerable don't activate your burst yet. Use the standard rotation of:

Once the orb collection has finished and Swords have been used then you can begin your burst rotation. Wait until Conjured Amalgamate has at least five stacks before you begin.

During the second burn remember that it phases at 25% so adapt your burst timing. You will most likely have to start it during your teammates Sword casts so pay attention to it.

For the last burn phase remember that you can hit both Conjured Amalgamate and the second Arm if you’re close enough.

rotation with Throw Magnetic Bomb:
