Upgrade Item Details

Sigils:

 

Great sword - energy over battle; air over battle; rage over battle; leeching over battle: intelligence over battle

 

Staff - leeching over doom; generosity over doom; hydromancy over doom, air over doom; strength over doom

 

Runes:

 

Hoelbrak - provides the - condi duration that is so important to fight CCs, and random condition pressure on a build with little cleanse.

 

Pack - AoE fury and swiftness are great support for your team and boosts to your damage if they aren't already filled and your team produces adequate might already.

 

Strength - for teams with high enough condition cleanse these runes deal 4% more damage and have higher might duration

 

Vampirism - These runes are very useful in this flux meta with all the burst people are throwing around. Against condition heavy comps these runes are absolutely useless though.

This is virtually impossible and should only be used on extremely rare occasions where it is absolutely necessary to try hard shatter a tanky enemy to death. It is much better to use the first half causing an most enemies death in most scenarios. The mantra cast in the middle of the combo is a site glitch, just use the 2nd mantra charge. The CCs are ALL intended to interrupt in a perfect execution, of yet I not seen every interrupt proc because the combo is not optimal for most scenarios. It does have its purpose though.
