Summary

This build is intended to be very difficult build to kill, and is great to use on Khylo.

 

The assets of this build include:
- Dodges for Days. ( Energy Sigils, Adventurer Runes)
- Ample Condition Removal ( Shatter, Heal Skill, Null Field)
- Something to constantly do between dodges (In staff it is to get Chaos Armor, in scepter/sword, it is blocking and attempting to apply a little pressure to the enemy with phantasm and confusion beam).

 

This is a very simple build to play for the most part. You have a nearly endless stream of dodge rolls between your heal skill and weapon swap; and a lot of condition cleanse with null field and shatters, as well as a LOT of heals with mirror being on a 12 second cd and each of your shatters contributing towards healing.

 

A great build for treb use on Khylo. For other matches, this build works quite well to assist / +1 points and whittle enemies down.
