Condition Reaper Build
Damage
April 17, 2018

Overview

Though their two builds are similar enough to swap between easily, Condition Reaper will most likely fair better in fractals than Condition Scourge due to Reaper having the superior burst damage (though if you’re dealing with a lot of mobs like in the Molten Boss Fractal it may be worth swapping to Scourge for the superior cleave).

Offering a good mix of damage, CC and utility this build can adapt well to fit most situations you’ll come across in fractals, though it is held back a bit by the reliance on hitting ice fields for a significant part of your rotation; as well as being a condition build in a power-burst oriented part of the game; but it also comes back strong with good baseline survivability as well as amazing sustain you can trait in for emergencies (or to enable a cushier/more aggressive playstyle).

Beyond the requirement of understanding combo field attunement, Condition Reaper is a satisfying build that is a good mix of rewarding and relatively uncomplicated, in addition to not relying on allied support to stay alive in key situations as other builds, though it does have a lower damage potential compared to them as well (partly due to being a condi build of course). This build is recommended for situations where boon corruption may be needed for the team, extra forms of projectile mitigation are required, or short bursts of cleave via

Epidemic are desired (and can also allow you to solo/carry most fractals should you gain enough mastery over it).
