Introduction to Berserker
What are Banners?

Banners are immovable objects that only the caster can interact with. Assuming perfect Alacrity, you will have four seconds of downtime with your banners.

If you pick up your banners, they will Recharge by 60 seconds. This means that once your banners are on a 60 seconds Recharge, you can pick them up and recast them instantly. Take advantage of this during downtime between phases or when bosses are Invulnerable. This will ensure permanent uptime.

Make sure you place your banners close to your stack or between two locations if you know you will move slightly.

There are five types of banners:

You are required to fill up all 30 points of adrenaline in order to enter . After that point, each primal burst skill will cost 10 points of adrenaline. Using a burst skill will use all of your adrenaline, even if the skill misses.

So which primal burst skills will you encounter in this build?

General Berserker Tips

In this encounter, is far inferior to due to the low armor of Vale Guardian and the fast phase times. Only play if your group has no other option for the Red Guardian split.

If you are in an organised group and kill Vale Guardian in the middle then you do not need to worry about your positioning so much as it is fairly easy to cleave the Seekers. Cleaving the Seekers will keep up your stacks thereby giving you more Condition Damage.

If you kill Vale Guardian on a wall then try to cleave the boss and the Seekers at the same time. You can do this by standing at his side and by aiming your through him to hit the Seekers behind.

If the timing permits, you can use to block the teleport from .

Banner Placement

Place your banners slightly towards the Red Guardian. This will make it easy for you to pick them up at the end of every phase.

You will have time to cast them during each split phase, pick them up and recast them again for the main phase.

Split Phase

As you will need to go to the Red Guardian during the split phase. If you have problems with Seeker control during the split, use to Immobilize it.

Use to help break the Red Guardian.

There is no reason to skill save during the split phase, so just continue your rotation as normal.

If you have fast split phases then you will want to hold off from using . With fast split phases you might not have back off Cooldown for when you engage Vale Guardian again.

Try to cleave the expanding orbs and mobs in order to maintain 25 stacks of . Cleaving the orbs is typically your responsibility and is easily done with good positioning.

is such an integral part of maintaining and therefore DPS, you will generally no longer be able to save the Stability granted by to avoid the knockdown from . Have faith in your support.

During the third DPS phase, or "Eggs" will spawn around Gorseval. Try to avoid Dodging out of the "Eggs" in order to upkeep DPS, because you can simply walk backwards out of them as they spawn. will root you in place, so take care not to get trapped in an egg.

Banner Placement

Your banner placement will depend slightly on the way your squad does the split phase. Organised groups will either split their squad in half or into four groups.

If you split into two groups then you should place your banners to the West of Gorseval. This is because both groups will end their split phase there.

If you are splitting four ways, your split phase will be too fast to worry about casting banners. Simply pick up your banners at the end of each main phase and cast them again at the start of the next phase.

If you are running around as a squad to kill all the Charged Souls then you can place your banners slightly behind Gorseval. This will ensure you will be in range of your banners for at least two Charged Souls.

You can pick up your banners just as the split phase ends and recast them. This will ensure a high uptime.

Split Phase

As you head back towards Gorseval, you can use as a gap closer. If you use through up you will gain a Fire Shield. The same applies when moving between Charged Souls during the split phase. Fire Shield will give mobs Burning when you are stuck and can potentially detonate due to .

If your group is struggling with the split phases, remember that you can always use to Immobilize the Charged Souls.

Breakbar Phase

Save your to help CC. You won't have up for the first Breakbar as you will need to use it to kickstart your rotation.

If your squad is really struggling with CC then you could swap out for .

Continue your rotation during the Breakbar Phase as none of your skills hit fast enough to worry about dying to Vivid Echo.

Utility Skills
Weapon Sets
General Berserker Tips

The relatively long phases at this fight and large cleave potential for stacks puts in close contest with at Sabetha. Use whatever build you feel comfortable with, but remember that brings ranged cleave DPS for greater utility at this encounter.

Keep an eye on Sabetha's health and try not to waste Cooldowns if she is about to phase. This becomes more important when Kernan, Knuckles and Karde spawn as they will spawn Invulnerable and therefore destroy any projectiles you use. Prioritize over when Sabetha is close to phasing.

You can easily cleave adds to help provide stacks. This is actually important when Karde spawns as you will need to help cleave down his turrets. Current meta DPS classes provide little ranged cleave, and turrets will put huge pressure on the group, so it is imperative to cleave these with and whenever possible.

You will probably have to deal with a set of cannons as . Remember, you can leave the cannon early as your conditions will continue to tick damage! You can use to get to and from the launch pads.

Banner Placement

Place your banners close to the center of the arena. Pick them up and replace them between the time that Sabetha goes Invulnerable and Kernan, Knuckles, and Karde spawn. When the phases are long enough that the banners will disappear before phase, recast them between phases.

Time Bombs

You lose barely anything by baiting the mechanic, as you can normally attack from range at some point in your rotation. To bait the mechanic you must be the closest person to Sabetha.

If you get a when you are on your Sword set you can use as you walk out of the stack and to get back in. If you are on your Longbow set, delay using until you are close enough that all three projectiles hit again.

General Berserker Tips

Always remember that it is your job to CC the saboteurs with so try to save it. To make your life easier, remember that you can throw beehives in front of the cage to CC the saboteurs for you when Narella spawns. This will let you keep up some DPS on her instead of trying to CC them.

Although strictly speaking you do not need , it will help to maintain Might and Fury while your subgroup is spread out.

Matthias Gabrel 25,953,840 1,374 140 2,500

Utility Skills

General Berserker Tips

During the Snowstorm phase, Matthias will create Icy Patches that can, and should, be cleaved through the boss with or , increasing your average stacks of .

Take care with as this skill can reflect Matthias when he uses - his jump attack.

Conditions continue to apply when Matthias uses his , so always continue with your rotation when he uses this attack.

Banner Placement

The aim of the Matthias encounter is to keep him as static as possible near the center of the room so this means your banners should also be near the center of the room. If you see Matthias run off to Narnia, try to pick up your banners and recast them.

You have time during to pick up your banners and recast them. You also have time when Matthias goes Invulnerable at 40%.

Dealing with Mechanics

If you do happen to get a mechanic, be it or , you can walk backwards from Matthias to continue attacking and using . When moving back to Matthias remember to use as a gap closer.

If you are targeted by and are forced to move away from Matthias, you can use if you are on your Sword set to avoid too much DPS downtime. Use to get back to Matthias once has ended but take care not to leap too early.

Breakbar Phase

Save your to help CC even though you will be self-stunned. Most of the strong DPS classes at this encounter lack CC capability without suffering a noticeable DPS loss, so it is in your best interest to bring CC.

If your squad is really struggling with CC then you could swap out for , although this should be done in a worst-case scenario. does not apply Bleeding and is on a 20 second Recharge compared to 's 15 second Recharge.

You can easily cleave adds here, therefore maintaining 25 stacks of . You can move around Xera to position yourself so you can use onto the adds as they spawn. This will not only help to maintain stacks but it will also aid in cleaving down the adds. Take care when cleaving adds that are in a shard AoE field as their Burning will get converted into Aegis.

If in the second phase you stay in one place to kill Xera, then try to stand to the side of her so you can cleave shards as well. Again, this will help to maintain stacks and also to remove shard pressure.

Remember to use to help CC when Xera has her Breakbar up. Xera gains a flat 80% damage reduction during the Breakbar, it is in your best interest to self-stun and break Xera as soon as possible.

Island Pre-event

Use Longbow for the second island as most likely you will be placed on a button. Using in is ideal. You can use to help blast Might in your field to help boost your DPS classes while they are killing the central shard.

You can actually cast banners on each island and pick them up before you leave. This is will massively help your subgroup clear the island events.

Banner Placement

Find out from the Power Boon Chronomancer if you are keeping Xera in the middle during the first phase. If you are, then you can just place your banners there. If you are moving Xera try to place your banners between the middle and the location to which you will move her.

The same applies to the second phase, after 50%. Find out where you will be moving Xera and place your banners between the two tanking positions.

During the second phase, you can pick them up as you move between tanking spots and recast them.

Banner Placement

Mursaat Overseer is practically static, so just place your banners near the center of the arena.

Claim

When it is impossible for another class to take Claim, you can do so with little DPS loss, as you will be able to cleave Jade Scouts most of the time even while tanking.

Face the boss away from the group and do a golem rotation while claiming the necessary tiles.

Always try to cleave Deimos, Saul and/or the Greeds and Prides. This will help keep your stacks high.

Banner Placement

Place your banners near the center of the Arena as Deimos barely moves.

Make sure you pick up your banners as you phase Deimos at 10% health. Recast them immediately when you get down to the last phase.

Split Phase

will solo break any of the Sauls which spawn.

There is no reason to skill save during the split phases, so just keep up your rotation as normal. The faster you phase Saul, the faster you are back at Deimos.

Remember to cleave both Saul and Deimos when possible, this will help top up your stacks.


Hall of Chains

Soulless Horror 35,391,600 1,374 160 3,000

Utility Skills
Weapon Sets
General Berserker Tips

At the beginning of the fight, you can cleave both Soulless Horror and the wurms with . This will, not only reduce damage from the wurms, but it will also greatly help with your stacking.

Use on the Tormented Dead if your druid is struggling with controlling it.

You can use if you have to move away from Soulless Horror due to bad wall spawns. Because most of your kit is entirely mobile, you should have almost no problem sticking to Soulless Horror and avoiding walls.

You can use to block most attacks by Soulless Horror. If you can, you can use to block .

Banner Placement

Place your banners near the center of the arena, for maximum coverage.

Placing them in the cener of the arena will also make it easier for you to pick them up if you need to move due to bad walls.

Breakbar Phase

Save your to help CC Soulless Horror. You will lose less DPS from the self-stun than forcing the Condition Mirages to use tools such as .

If your squad is really struggling with CC then you could swap out for . Try to avoid this as the longer 20 second Recharge on will interfere with your ability to do a golem rotation.

Dhuum 32,000,000 1,374 400

Utility Skills
Weapon Sets
General Berserker Tips

In pug groups, you will most likely be taking the first green. Always double check with your Power Boon Chronomancer to see which green you need to do! In more organized groups, that still play double Heal Druid, it is possible for both Heal Druids and the Power Boon Chronomancer to take greens. This allows you to DPS greed on Dhuum without dealing with mechanics.

You are able to use at the Dhuum encounter as you can gain full adreanline during the pre-event. This will allow you to use to provide Fury and/or to ressurect Downed allies in clutch moments.

Use in your rotation on the Enforcers as they take extra direct damage.

Keep at eye on the Reaper by the gate. If spiders start to build up, use to cleave them. This is mainly important after the first . Just aim through Dhuum onto the spiders, this will mean that you can cleave them without losing any DPS.

Greater Death Mark

Seeing as you aren't going to be in charge of boon strip, due to multiple Condition Renegades, it doesn't really matter which green you take.

Remember that is a condition cleanse, so use it to cleanse the Torment after the Soul Split or .

Dealing with Mechanics

Use for extra movement during mechanics and going to greens. This will help you maximise your DPS uptime.

You can also use when moving out to the seals during the final 10%.

Banner Placement

Ask the Power Boon Chronomancer where you will be tanking Dhuum. Try to place your banners between the two tanking spots for each phase between the .

If you are taking the first green you will need to place your banners before taking your second green as Dhuum will have already spawned. You can pick up your banners when you return and recast them again.

Before any of your greens, you can pick up you banners and recast them. This will ensure a very high, if not permanent, uptime for your banners.

You can use to block many mechanics in this encounter. However, due to its integral role in the rotation due to extending , you should lean towards walking out of the mechanics.

At Nikare you can use to block and . If you are targeted by , you can move to place it down but continue to attack by using .

At Kenut you can use to block . This attack by Kenut hits multiple times and you may still take damage from it even if you block with .

You can also block , the small AoEs that spawn which apply Torment.

You can block with . If your Heal Druid is struggling with kiting this attack you can always do it as you can still DPS from range when you need to move out.

Save your so you can CC Kenut or Nikare during . You will lose less DPS from the self-stun than the Condition Mirages will from using tools like .

Banner Placement

Place your banners immediately when you start the encounter. You can pick them up and recast them as you move platform.

Make sure you place them towards the side of the platform that you will leave from. If you do this, you can pick them up just before you glide to the next platform.

Swapping Platforms

Due to the ability for the Kenut subgroup to take advantage of to steal Quickness from the Heal Druid to proc Confusion, Kenut tends to phase faster than Nikare.

It will generally be your job to determine which platform needs help and to adjust accordingly, although it is easiest to move from the last platform early.

Qadim 19,268,760 1,374 240

is superior to here due to the short phases at Qadim and the necessity for large amounts of CC for add phases and on slower boss burn phases.

If your CC is slow at Qadim or you need more CC for the creatures you can always take instead of , although this will heavily influence your rotation and therefore, DPS.

Take care when you use as it will put you very close to your target. All the enemies at the Qadim encounter have proximity based aggro mechanics and your close proximity may cause aggro issues.

Remember that you can't do any damage to Qadim when his Breakbar is up. The faster you break him the faster you can go back to DPS. This is why is the superior build at Qadim.

Try to cleave all the three adds that spawn at the Destroyer. These deal heavy damage and their Breakbar should be broken and adds killed as soon as possible.

You will need to kite one of the Wyverns as . Most attacks can be sidestepped or avoided by moving inside the Wyvern's hitbox.

Kiting A Wyvern

Kiting a Wyvern is easy if you know their attack pattern.

2 x or Breakbar Phase .

If you are kiting the Matriarch you need to make sure that she is not facing the Patriarch when she uses . This will push the Patriarch group off the platform and will result in a wipe.

You can simply move out of the way when a Wyvern uses . The same applies for and .

You will generally need to block or Dodge the first but you can simply walk inside the hitbox of the Wyvern to avoid the second hit of . In most cases, you can walk through the Matriarch hitbox during the first swipe animation to avoid it, although this is riskier.

After the Wyvern uses to escape they may use . They will only use this skill if no one is close to them when they move, so make sure to stay close to the boss during the transition. Being hit by will almost certainly result in a Down.

Banner Placement

Cast your banners just before the Hydra spawns. You can pick them up and recast them if the Hydra teleports. You can then pick them up again as the Hydra dies.

Recast your banners as you get back to Qadim after you've dealt with the Pyres. Always pick them up again at the end of each phase. Repeat this for the following phases.

If you have fast phases, you can use your banners before you deal with the Pyres. Cast them just in front of Qadim.

Make sure to place your banners next to the Patriarch before going to Matriarch to ensure a faster burn and therefore phase transition. You will generally have time to set your banners down again during the Matriarch burn and pick them up before arriving at Qadim one last time.

Don't use your banners once you've killed the Matriarch and Patriarch. Wait until you have finished the jumping puzzle and have arrived at Qadim.

You can do ranged DPS when Qadim the P moves to destroy the Pylons at 40%, 30% and 20%. is a safe option, especially below 20%, as you will take less damage from the Retaliation that Qadim the P gets.
