Overview

A damage-focussed Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (2) Quickness provider that maintains its group boons by constantly hitting targets with Burst skills. Aside from permanent Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (3) Fury, this build provides no additional boons and minimal utility.

You can provide Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (4) Might by swapping utility skills or bringing the Tactics traitline, but this is a fairly large DPS loss.

Utility

Weapon Variants

Greatsword offers the highest damage, but it could be swapped out for more utility if desired.

  • You can run an off-hand Mace (leaving the main-hand slot of your second weapon set empty). This allows you to still have access to your main-hand Axe and maintain damage while still providing decent CC.
  • Warhorn to provide some additional boon coverage. This can be especially valuable if your subgroup doesn't have another source of Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (5) Swiftness as the buff from Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (6)Warrior's Sprint is significant.

Skill Variants

  • Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (7)Mending will give greater DPS in short, phased fights where you will have enough downtime to precast it. This is most relevant in fractals.
  • Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (8)Defiant Stance can be used to provide temporary immunity to damage allowing you to ignore certain mechanics such as the shockwaves at Sabir.
  • Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (9)"For Great Justice!" can replace Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (10)Signet of Might to provide ~9 stacks of Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (11) Might for a ~4.5% DPS loss.
  • If you don't need the CC from Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (12)Head Butt, and can start phases with full adrenaline, then Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (13)Battle Standard offers some extra boon generation and an emergency res.

Specializations

Tactics Variant

If you want to provide more Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (14) Might for your subgroup, you can bring the Tactics traitline instead of Strength

  • Taking Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (15)"For Great Justice!" should be your first choice if you want Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (16) Might. Tactics provides an extra ~16 stacks on top of this, and you can cap Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (17) Might if you also take Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (18)Empower Allies, though by this point your DPS loss is quite severe.

Usage

The rotation is identical to the Power DPS rotation, the only difference being that your Burst skills are now applying AoE Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (20) Quickness!

Rotation

The rotation aims to get as many casts of Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (21)Decapitate and Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (22)Arc Divider off as possible, maintaining Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (23)Berserk mode for as long as there is something to hit. Effectively, this means that while on Axe/Axe you cast Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (24)Decapitate followed by a combination of skills that gets you back to 10 Adrenaline to recast Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (25)Decapitate.

General Tips

Axe

  • If you have trouble memorising the Axe section, it may be helpful to think of it as a priority list to build adrenaline for your next Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (67)Decapitate:
  1. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (68)Head Butt + Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (69)Outrage
  2. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (70)Cyclone Axe + Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (71)Throw Axe
  3. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (72)Dual Strike + Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (73)Throw Axe
  4. Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (74)Whirling Axe
  • When Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (75)Blood Reckoning is almost off cooldown, use your remaining axe skills (make sure to be at full adrenaline) and Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (76) Weapon Swap instead of Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (77)Decapitate.


Berserk

  • All your Rage and Burst skills extend the duration of Berserk, which means it is important to use them as soon as they are available to avoid dropping out of Berserk.
    • This involves using Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (78)Outrage, Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (79)Head Butt and Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (80)Wild Blow to maintain damage rather than a stunbreak/CC.
  • If you drop out of Berserk, you should already be at full adrenaline when it is next available, so you use Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (81)Head Butt Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (82)Outrage after entering Berserk instead. This means your second Berserk has a longer duration and is (even) easier to maintain.
  • Generally you shouldn't be auto-attacking while Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (83)Berserk mode is active.


Outside of Berserk

  • Ideally you are always in Berserk during DPS phases.
  • Stay on Axe when you're not in Berserk, but as Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (84)Decapitate isn't available you should just use your Axe skills as they come off cooldown.
  • Try to complete your Axe auto chains when not in Berserk.
  • Do not use your rage skills whilst outside of Berserk.
  • Use Build:Berserker - Quickness Support Power DPS (85)Berserk as soon as it is available.
