It also has a constant 103 armor vs. all damage and 123 vs. physical as well as +3 health regeneration.

For AB Resurrection Signet can be exchanged for:

  • Harrier&#039;s Grasp [[Harrier's Grasp@11] for a good snare.

    • 15^50 +30 health 20/20 Sundering Scythe

Usage Edit

  • Maintain Avatar of Balthazar and all enchantments at all times, with a zealous scythe this will not be difficult.
  • Maintain Heart of Fury
  • Spam Chilling victory
  • Use Victorious Sweep whenever you aren't using Chilling Victory

Counters Edit

  • General anti melee/ranged hexes
  • Blind
  • Rapid enchant removal

Notes Edit

  • Spamming Harrier's Haste not only provides a constant IMS but also additional damage on moving targets and causes Avatar of Balthazar to trigger burning more often.
  • Make sure not to reactivate Grenth's Aura until it has expired and triggered burning. This also helps to conserve energy.
  • Do not worry if a mesmer only puts Empathy on you if you still have all of your enchantments active. Use chilling victory then Victorious Sweep on them and the life stealing from Grenth's aura and the healing from Victorious sweep will negate damage from Empathy.
