Equipment Edit

  • Armor - Full set of any armor with Radiant Insignias. Runes of Attunement on empty slots of armor.
  • Weapons - Daggers of Enchanting (Energy +5)

Usage Edit

  • Upkeep all enchantments as recharge/energy allows.
  • Spam Exhausting Assault. This results in 156 DPS with Heart of Fury on, and 104 with it off. Note that this damage is practically un-stoppable; as of now Shield of Absorption Shield of Absorption is the only thing that can completely mitigate the DPS from this build.Angelic Protection Angelic Protection and Shielding Hands Shielding Hands both reduce it to a semi-manageable amount.

Counters Edit

  • Shield of Absorption, Angelic Protection, and Shielding Hands.
    • Shield of Absorption, after the 1st second of attacking during which your DPS is 81, will bring your DPS to zero.
    • Angelic Protection needs to be used by a Paragon with 16 Leadership to bring the DPS to 80.
    • Shielding Hands brings the DPS to 66.
  • On-attack hexes like Empathy are devastating; you attack 6 times per second with HoF active.
  • Removal of Sand Shards or WotEP.

Notes Edit

  • This build has been long nerfed, but its original power is too great to ignore.
  • This is insanely difficult to kill if you receive Vigorous Spirit from a team mate with a decent level in Healing.
