The Condi Firebrand
is a self-sufficient DPS build, which is not entirely relying on support from the party. This is achieved by bringing slightly more than 50% Quickness
to the party. Further, this build brings Stability
for the team. Don't be fooled though; the DPS sacrifice is neglectable so that the Condi Firebrand
maintains consistent very high DPS. In addition to that, a free utility slot allows the Condi Firebrand
to adapt to almost any situation and fill the parties' needs ideally.
The beginner version should not be played in the slot of a Quickness
-provider. Instead, it is a fully fledged DPS class! The added Quickness
will help to cover potential gaps in Quickness
application and alleviate some of stress the Quickness
-provider might face.
This is a great build to get started in fractals as you provide a base amount of supportive utility. As you progress through fractals and discover new depths of the immersive gameplay of Guild Wars 2, you can tweak this build more and more. Before reading the advanced version of this page, we recommend acquiring an in-depth understanding of your CC skills and when to use them efficiently. You also should be able to hit more than 45% Quickness
uptime (measure this with the
boon table arc-dps
). And finally, you should be able to execute the basic step-by-step rotation provided below without spending too much thought on it. addon
