Overview

Once a meta-defining DPS-support, Bannerslave has returned as a Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (1) Quickness provider. Banners provide a large amount of Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (2) Quickness up front and then pulse supplementary boons for a while afterwards. This makes warrior excellent for handling mechanics as it can spend long times off stack, and can provide its boons up to 960 units away. As banners cannot be moved once placed, it does struggle to maintain uptime on encounters with lots of movement.

This build provides permanent uptimes of Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (3) Quickness and Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (4) Fury, along with around 80% Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (5) Resistance.

Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (6)Banner of Tactics is essential for Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (7) Quickness uptime, but shattering blow can be swapped out if needed (though it is a significant DPS loss to replace it with anything but another rage skill):

  • Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (8)"For Great Justice!" if your group requires some extra Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (9) Might.
  • Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (10)Wild Blow for more CC.
  • Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (11)Banner of Discipline can be swapped out for Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (12)Banner of Defense to gain access to Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (13) Aegis and Barrier.
  • Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (14)Battle Standard can be used if CC is unimportant, and the Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (15) fury or res power will be beneficial.

  • Getting use out of the Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (16) Stability or Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (17) Aegis from Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (18)Banner of Tactics or Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (19)Banner of Defense, respectively, can be difficult as you need to use these skills nearly off cooldown to maintain Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (20) Quickness. If you want to be able to use them more reactively, then swapping in Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (21) Ritualist stats gear is an efficient way to gain a lot more boon duration.

Equipment Variants

Sigils

  • A Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (22)Sigil of Superior Sigil of Bursting can replace the Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (23)Sigil of Superior Sigil of Earth for more consistent DPS, that should be slightly higher. The difference will be small though.
  • The exact arrangement of sigils is not vital, but the on-crit sigils are chosen to be on longbow as Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (24)Fan of Fire has a ~98% chance of critting at least once, making it more likely that you will get a second proc of Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (25)Sigil of Superior Sigil of Torment or a third proc of Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (26)Sigil of Superior Sigil of Earth.

Usage

Banner Usage

In general you want to use your banners off cooldown, though you can afford to delay them by a second or so if it means not delaying your berserk rotation. If you land your banners in one of your many fire fields, you can also provide some incidental Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (27) Might. If you anticipate needing to delay your banners to deal with mechanics, or just find that you need higher boon duration to maintain Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (28) Quickness, then swapping in Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (29) Ritualist stats gear is very efficient.

Rotation

Condi Berserker does not have a perfect loop as Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (30)Berserk length and cooldown align differently with key skills. This means skill ordering can vary depending on how much time you have left in Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (31)Berserk.

Opening Berserk Section

  1. Cast both banners on the group (after the boon strip, if there is one)
  2. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (32)Flames of War
  3. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (33) Weapon swap
  4. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (34)Fan of Fire
  5. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (35)Pin Down
  6. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (36)Head Butt
  7. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (37)Berserk as soon as the self-stun wears off
  8. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (38)Scorched Earth
  9. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (39)Blood Reckoning
  10. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (40)Scorched Earth
  11. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (41)Shattering Blow
  12. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (42)Fan of Fire
  13. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (43) Weapon swap

After the opener, you will switch between sword and longbow sections until Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (44)Berserk runs out

  3. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (47)Final Thrust (only when target is below 50% health)
  4. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (48)Flaming Flurry - use this as the second skill if Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (49)Berserk is about to end
  5. Auto until Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (50) Weapon swap is off cooldown - don't worry about finishing the auto chain

  8. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (61) Weapon swap
  9. Return to start of sword section

Outside berserk section

Assuming you're fast enough, berserk should run out shortly after step 4 in the third sword section

  1. Auto until Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (62)Berserk has ~4s remaining on cooldown - finish the auto chain this time
  2. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (63)Final Thrust (only when target is below 50% health)
  3. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (64)Savage Leap (optional)
  4. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (65) Weapon swap
  5. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (66)Fan of Fire

General Tips

  • While in Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (75)Berserk, you want to weapon swap off sword as soon as you can.
  • While in Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (76)Berserk, always start longbow sections with Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (77)Fan of FireBuild:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (78)Scorched Earth and always end them with Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (79)Scorched EarthBuild:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (80)Fan of Fire.
  • Use Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (81)Flames of War and Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (82)Shattering Blow whenever they are off cooldown.
    • Try to fit in Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (83)Flames of War before Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (84)Flaming Flurry so that it is not delayed too much.
    • Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (85)Shattering Blow extends the duration of Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (86)Berserk if used while in Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (87)Berserk, so make sure you use it as soon as it's available to prevent Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (88)Berserk ending early. Try not to use it during steps 1-3 on longbow though, as this will delay your entire rotation.
      • Continue using Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (89)Shattering Blow outside of Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (90)Berserk, but you can delay it a couple of seconds if berserk is about to become available.
  • Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (91)Flaming Flurry is your lowest DPS skill aside from auto attacks. This means you can easily delay it to fit in other key skills, or even weapon swap in the middle of the cast to prevent slowing down your rotation.
  • Follow the rotation as much as possible but stay on longbow if you can't make use of your sword skills in melee range.
  • You can provide extra might for your group by using Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (92)Arcing Arrow inside your Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (93)Scorched Earth or another fire field.
  • Try to drop your banners when you would otherwise just be autoattacking on longbow.
  • 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 - Quickness Support Condi DPS (94)Shattering Blow.

Advanced Tips

  • If you get a fire aura from source other than yourself, then you should delay Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (95)Savage Leap.
  • You can stow-cancel the aftercast of Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (96)Flaming Flurry, as well as the aftercast of the auto-attack that comes before the Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (97)Scorched Earth in step 5 of the longbow section.
  • Getting the very last Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (98)Flaming Flurry requires being very fast with the rotation. If you are not quite fast enough to consistently fit it in, you can use it as the first skill of the final sword section in Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (99)Berserk.
  • For most of the rotation, the order of Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (100)Blaze Breaker, Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (101)Savage Leap and Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (102)Final Thrust is unimportant as you will use each of them only once per loop, and the loop is longer than their cooldowns. The order used is to make the rotation easier to remember, but informed by the following:
    • On the second sword section after the opener, Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (103)Flames of War is not quite off cooldown when you swap to sword, but using Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (104)Savage Leap first would delay it slightly (Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (105)Flames of War is a very high-damage skill). Thus Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (106)Blaze Breaker is used first.
    • During the sword section where Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (107)Berserk ends, there is time to use Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (108)Final Thrust twice without delaying the rotation, but only if it is used before Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (109)Flaming Flurry.

Breakbar

  • Your most easily accessible strong CC is Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (110)Head Butt.
  • If your team needs strong CC, on Mathias Gabrel for example, you can switch Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (111)Shattering Blow for Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Condi DPS (112)Wild Blow, your strongest CC option.
