Achieving masterydifficult
This build is strong in Sunqua Peak CM. In power groups and other bosses this build will fall behind Power Soulbeast - the power damage counterpart.
Hybrid Soulbeast is a DPS build with very high sustained damage but not much utility. This build is intended to be used for 99CM. For most other fractals, especially if your group is playing power builds, you will be better off playing the power variant found here.
This build has a relatively unforgiving rotation and can be awkward to play in pugs due to a lack of CC. However, Hybrid Soulbeast is one of the highest damage builds on 99CM when played correctly.
Equipment
This build uses the Jade Bot Core: Tier 10 in combination with 9

Pets
Bristleback - Preferred pet for 100CM. F2 can be precast at mistlock. It is the best CDPS pet for when there are multiple targets.

Rotation / Skill usage
The main idea behind the rotation is to use your high damage skills under the effects of

On 99CM, make sure to use
in the center of the arena where possible to get extra procs from the invisible hitbox, or when there are multiple fears around Ai.
Where possible, do not intterupt your auto attack chain. This is because the later attacks in the chain apply stacks of Bleeding and Poisoned.

to when the boss charges to the first wall. NOTE: this will cause any pets to immediately aggro to the boss. Should only be used if portalling from mistlock to the boss.
The elite stance
is removed upon entering combat on 99CM. Using an elite that summons friendly pets is your best precast in this slot.
,
, and
are options that can synergize well if you have a Thief who can precast venoms onto the pets.
