- Swap Aggressive Refrain for Flurry for increased IAS and armor. (Not recommended for beginner imbagons)
- Add Spear of Lightning for good attack skill for general use.
- Add Swift Javelin if running in team with orders/aegis chains etc.
- Add "Go For The Eyes!" for greater energy management. (The additional damage is insignificant against high-level foes.)
- Add Anthem of Flame or Anthem of Weariness to keep up AR outside of battle as well as provide additional damage or defense. When bringing Anthem of Flame, "They're on Fire!" can be considered for optional #2 (though the extra damage reduction is often unnecessary).
- Add "We Shall Return!" and Blazing Spear (Replace Blazing Spear for Merciless Spear if fighting Destroyers or Fire Elementals)
- Swap Ebon Battle Standard of Honor for Spear of Fury for adrenaline instead of damage buffing.
- Against Demons in Nightfall, take Lightbringer Signet for instantly charged "SY!" and energy management.
- Centurion's or Survivor's Insignia on all pieces.
- Rune of Superior Vigor.
- Rune of Clarity.
- Vampiric/Zealous/Sundering 15^50 Spear of Fortitude and a -20% Blind Command Shield of Fortitude.
- +15/-1energy Staff in case you are low on energy.
- If you can afford a Req.7, 15AL command shield, drop command to 6+1, and put an extra point into spear mastery.
- Alternate Focused Anger and "For Great Justice!"
- Keep "Save Yourselves!" and "There's Nothing to Fear!" up as much as possible.
- Use your attack skills for damage.
- Place Ebon Battle Standard of Honor strategically to increase you and your allies' damage.
- Anti-shout skills such as Vocal Minority
- Anti-adrenaline hexes such as Soothing Images
- Blind/Missing, Blocking, and Hexes that trigger on attacks
- Replace Aggressive Refrain with Flurry for more intensive play, but higher IAS. Only use this when taking GftE due minor energy problems.
- Add Wild Throw instead of one of the attack skills to get through blocking stances.
- Add Hexbreaker Aria to combat hexes in caster parties. Maintaining "Save Yourselves!" should be prioritized over Hex Removal, but you can still manage both.
- Add "Fall Back!" to decrease time spent during the run between mobs with an expense of losing some DPS. Not recommended when running with balanced team.
- Invest in Tactics instead of Command and add "To the Limit!" to get "Save Yourselves!" charged instantaneously should your party encounter foes in greater numbers than 3. It is also useful if your attacking is disabled (blind, blurred vision etc).
- Replace Ebon Battle Standard of Honor with "Go For The Eyes!" to maintain Aggressive Refrain and also makes skills that are dependent on critical hits more effective.
