The Condi Firebrand provides permanent

to the party while dealing high consistent DPS. In organized teams this build is inferior to Power Firebrand because it takes too much time to ramp up the damage. For slower groups however you can achieve very competitive results making DPS players sweat. Your tomes are by far your most important skills, they enable you to do great DPS as well as support and heal your allies. Thanks to those, the build is able to adapt to various situations with
,
, reflects and pulls.

This build has tremendous amounts of self-sustain and is therfore also a great build for soloing content:

  • Permanent
    .
  • Permanent 25x Might if you swap to
    .
  • for heals.
  • for
    ,
    , reflects and damage reduction.
  • Optionally:
    for a 6s long high HP regeneration.

One main downside of Condi Firebrand is that you lack CC (Crowd Control), and missing the unique party wide +216

buff provided by
.

Overall this build is one of the best picks for newer players, for PuGs as

provider or for people that want to be more independant of their groups.
