Overview

A condition DPS Berserker raid build focussed mainly on Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (2) Burning and Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (3) Bleeding. The rotation is fast-paced and rewards constantly attacking, weapon swapping and triggering of burst skills. Despite this and the Berserker's theming, the damage is among the slowest-ramping in the game, heavily favouring long phases.

The default build packs a good amount of CC and mobility, and its combination of high health, heavy armour and Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (4)Blood Reckoning make it very survivable. In addition, Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (5)Scorched Earth is a great cleave skill that can hit distant targets without losing DPS on the boss.

Its damage is heavily dependent on remaining inside Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (6)Berserk by frequently using Rage skills. As such, it is very reliant on having good Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (7) Alacrity uptime.

Non-SotO Relics

There are no obvious damage relics for players that don't own Secrets of the Obscure. Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (10)Relic of the Warrior is an interesting option as it allows you to reduce the time spent on Sword (though you still want to make sure you're not weapon swapping too soon for your sigils to trigger).

Breakbar

  • Your most easily accessible strong CC is Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (41)Head Butt.
    • If you know you will be using Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (42)Head Butt, you may wish to delay Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (43)Outrage so you can immediately break the self-stun.
  • Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (44)Wild Blow is used in the rotation, so you will need to balance the need for CC against the risk of dropping out of Berserk if you delay the extension.

General Tips

  • Use Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (45)Shattering Blow, Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (46)Wild Blow and Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (47)Outrage off cooldown.
    • Use Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (48)Sundering Leap off cooldown (if using), but make sure that you're in one of your fire fields in order to give yourself a Fire Aura.
    • You can save Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (49)Outrage to break stuns inflicted during the encounter if you think you may need to.
  • You may need to use Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (50)Head Butt occasionally to prevent yourself dropping out of Berserk - combo with Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (51)Outrage.
    • You can also use it for extra damage if Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (52)King of Fires triggers and you have no other Berserker skill to detonate the aura with.
  • If Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (53)Blood Reckoning is available after using Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (54)Scorched Earth, use Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (55)Blood Reckoning Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (56)Scorched Earth Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (57)Pin Down immediately after.
    • As you delay Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (58)Blood Reckoning until after a Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (59)Scorched Earth, the cooldown practically lines up with Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (60)Pin Down and it's ideal to use it in a fire field for the combo finisher. If they become desynced however, just use Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (61)Pin Down off cooldown.
    • Although this combo extends the time you spend on Longbow you still want to only use Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (62)Fan of Fire twice.
  • You can freely interrupt your Sword auto-attack chain without losing DPS.
  • Swap off from Sword as soon as your weapon swap is available.
  • Use Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (63)Flames of War off cooldown (if using).
    • If Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (64)Flames of War is nearly off cooldown when you would swap off sword, you can stay for a few more seconds and do Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (65)Flames of War Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (66)Savage Leap.
  • You can provide extra might for your group by using Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (67)Arcing Arrow inside your Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (68)Scorched Earth or another fire field.
  • Some bosses have attacks that are harmful to the group if they're reflected (Primarily Matthias Gabrel and Cairn the Indomitable), make sure to familiarize yourself with these and avoid reflecting them with Build:Berserker - Condi DPS (69)Shattering Blow.
