Fan of Fire:Use them whenever you can.Good condi damage.
Arcing Arrow:Use it for free might.It is combo finisher so use it in combo fields.Great damage.

V. Basic Gameplay

Start combat with Axe since you will build up adrenaline fairly quickly.Use warhorn skills if necessary.After building up full meter,switch to bow and use your bow burst skill.I recommend save your Pin Down because a lot of people will see it coming.You can fake it though.if you manage to get a Pin Down on enemy , switch to axe quickly.Then strike hard.After your axe burst , your meter should be rising quickly , due to using your shouts .So use it to your advantage.If you see heavy condis coming use Berserker Stance.Time your skills and you should be all right.

I also recommend a sigil of energy over the sigil of smoldering.
