The Power Reaper build, while not one of the strongest in terms of DPS, is a versatile build that can modify itself to suit a variety of scenarios without many issues.
With two main trait variants (Blood Magic for higher group sustain/CC and revival power; and Soul Reaping for a more powerful rotation and higher Vulnerability application) and multiple offensive skill options ( Pull, boon corruptions, Blind, Immobile, etc.) Power Reaper can modify itself to fit many given situations in fractals.
This build's weakness is its inability to be healed whilst in shroud, which can also affect your ability to maintain shroud for the rotation of the Soul Reaping variant, this can be offset by anticipating large attacks from bosses and sneaking in usage of 's skill or Greatsword's .
However, large amounts of self-produced Vulnerability, Quickness and Might will allow this build to perform well as a "solo carry" build that suffers less from underperforming teammates and heavily rewards a skilled user.

Your rotation falls into three main parts:
This is to be used essentially whenever you're not in
Pre 50% HP
Post 50% HP
Use this as part of your rotation, but the best time is to be using this as you are about to break a defiance bar (in tandem with the portion of your rotation)
Your aim is to use this when you have all of your persistent AoE abilities active (, , and )
If able to immediately break the defiance bar
If the defiance bar won't be broken immediately (e.g. Ensolyss)
