This build is META in Sunqua Peak. Outside Sunqua Peak in faster groups this build will fall massively behind Power Soulbeast - the power damage counterpart.

Condi Soulbeast is a DPS build with high sustained damage and reasonable burst that also provides strong party buffs with

and
, and crowd control (CC) skills. This build is mostly used for 100CM, for most other fractals you will be better off playing the power variant found here.

This build is rather self sufficient due to:

  • Boon extension by
    ,
  • Good CC with
    and
  • High mobility via
    and

Overall this is a very well rounded build that is rewarding to play in both PuGs and organized teams alike.

Swap Weapons
  • An Axe/Dagger set to replace Shortbow for fights where range is not needed.
  • A weapon set to precast and before getting into fight.

This build is probably only worth running in a static group. It's damage depends on the amount of Soulbeast in the party. The build deals similar DPS with 2 condi Soulbeasts, and outperforms the Krait build if you have 3 Soulbeasts in the party. If you are going to be on your own run the Krait rune setup!

Warthog - Best CDPS pet that also brings CC, also this is the pet you use in

Bristleback - Used to precast some extra Bleeding. Is also the best CDPS pet for when there are multiple targets.

Take this instead of
if boon uptime in your party is bad and you want some extra generation.
Take this instead of
if the boss you will be fighting doesn't change position often.
Shortbow vs Axe/Dagger

Although Axe/Dagger benches higher, typically this build is only run in 100CM where Shortbow shines due to the amount of moving Ai does. This allows you to keep attacking while at range. If you are running this build elsewhere you will probably find that Axe/Dagger will do more DPS. If you are swapping shortbow for Axe/Dagger you will want to run the following sigils:

  • Viper Axe

    Bursting

  • Viper Dagger

    Earth

Rotation / Skill usage
Information

Soulbeast Golem rotations from raid builds are generally suboptimal in fractals due to bosses moving around much more this makes

much more attractive than
which is used in raids. The rotations are fairly easy to adapt though, all you do is skip the second cast of a skill that has been Quickdrawn and dodge as much as you can to upkeep
.
rotations can still work providing the boss doesn't move too much but if there is any doubt take
.

With both condi rotations you want to use

and
off cool-down, and your
skills and
when you don't have anything else to do but auto attack.
