Fire Attunement
Attunement. Attune to fire, gaining heavy damage and burning abilities.

Drake's Breath
Spray a cone of fire at foes while on the move.
Damage (4x): 672x4Burning: 2.5 s (3936 damage)Range: 400

Drakes breath is INSANE and deals more damage than burning speed ever will on this spec having the same base damage and applying tremendous amounts of burning damage now that burning stacks. Your conditions damage is 750 + 611 if you are at this build full potential might stacks and you have + 40% condition duration, This means that dragons breath will deal damage equivalent to if you had OVER 1904 condition damage (it really ends up being about 1960). Your conditions will hit like a spvp condition builds conditions will, and this is not a condition oriented spec, too bad anet nerfed might and battle sigils D:

If you are getting focused hard its time to back off and heal up. Use the skills that apply to the situation, this is a full retreat rotation I demonstrate but if it is not necessary just continue to sustain pressure and healing. return to counter pressure as quickly as possible because the best way to survive is to have a dead enemy, unless you are outmatched and must disengage.

I found the gear listed here to not have enough survivability for the 2 to 5v1s I typically encounter in WvW.

So, does the Battle Sigil work when you swap attunements since you cannot swap weapons?

What's your reasoning for choosing Hoelbrak runes over Strength runes?
