Overview

The Condi Weaver is an unique build that can be played very effectively in Sunqua Peak, and will almost always outperform Power Weaver (if you find yourself in a slow group, this build can also be an attractive choice for ''slower'' encounters like Ensolyss and Arkk).

Condi Weaver can deal very high amounts of damage, and even rival META builds like Condi Soulbeast and Condi Firebrand when played properly.

This build is naturally tanky due to its rotation, having easy access to skills that provide evasion frames with Earthen Vortex, barrier with Lava Skin, condition cleansing with Magnetic Wave and even Obsidian Flesh, a powerful skill that grants Invulnerability against most attacks. It can also bring some group utility in the form of projectile destruction with Swirling Winds.

The main downside of Condi Weaver apart from the complexity of its rotation is the lack of unique party buffs and overall boon generation, apart from some Might granted by placing fire fields and randomly blasting them.

Equipment

Note that the build does not rely on precision as much as the Power Weaver variant and you can build your Agony Resistance around the 150 breakpoint. You should however aim for a fully +9 stated infusion gear setup for maximum Infinite Mist Omnipotion stat conversion value. The stats shown are with 162 Agony Resistance. This build requires 16x Malign +9 Agony Infusion and 2x Spiteful +9 Agony Infusion.

Situational Skills
If you do want to switch any of your utilites in favor of one of the skills listed above, you should prioritise dropping Glyph of Elemental Power before Primordial Stance and Signet of Fire.
Heal
An additional Might source from blasting fire fields. Overall provides less healing than Signet of Restoration.
A stronger alternative healing skill when you need to restore a large amount of health very quickly.
Another alternative healing skill affecting allies close to the target you strike.
Offensive
A rather unreliable alternative to Glyph of Elemental Power due to the nature of the pet's AI. Use with caution.
Defensive
A stun break with the addition of 3 blocks.
Another stun break that provides extra Protection and Stability.
A strong skill providing a lot of barrier and extra Stability.
Yet another stun break with the addition of evade frames.
Utility
A 900 units teleport for easy repositioning.
You can sacrifice some DPS for a powerful insta rez, can be very useful during "Dancing with Demons" runs.
Rotation / Skill usage
Disclaimer

Golem rotations out of the raid builds are generally suboptimal in fractals due to Exposed and phases being much shorter compared to raids. The raid rotations are optimized for sustained DPS while in fractals a player needs the ability to adapt a rotation to the amount of time a group needs to finish a phase.

Precasting
Weaver Precast
  • Start on Fire Attunement/Earth Attunement and precast Glyph of Elemental Power, Arcane Power.
  • Attune to Earth Attunement/Fire Attunement and precast Weave Self.
  • Take the Mistlock Singularity and attune to Air Attunement/Earth Attunement.

It is recommended to use separate precast builds to get additional buffs like Elemental Surge.

Precasting build template:

  • Arcane
  • Air
  • Weaver
Extra Precast for Sunqua Peak

If you have an extra set of weapons (or legendary sigils), you can also precast the effects of Superior Sigil of Doom and Superior Sigil of Leeching. To do that:

  • Switch to the sigils, fall below the stairs before the boss' arena to get in combat and switch to any attunement.
  • Once you are out of combat, you can switch the sigils back to Superior Sigil of Earth and Superior Sigil of Geomancy.

Important Notes
  • Signet of Fire is one of your most important DPS skills. Use it off cooldown!
  • Make sure to always use Glyph of Elemental Power in Fire Attunement. If the boss is about to phase or die, your next best option is to use it in Earth Attunement. If you find yourself is any other element, you should use it regardless, as it grants increased strike damage on your next few attacks.

  • Primordial Stance should be used during for maximum damage output. However, if the boss' breakbar is about to be broken or about to phase, you can also use it during or .
  • Although it is important to finish auto attack chains, during Weave Self, you should prioritize using your skills and entering Tailored Victory, even if it means skipping some auto attacks. Maintaining the buff of Weave Self is most important.

  • In the video, a 2nd Weave Self rotation is shown, which is different from the 1st. However, due to the faster nature of fractal bosses, you will either phase the boss before you reach the 2nd rotation or there will be enough downtime to reset to the written rotation when Weave Self is on cooldown.
