- Add [[Spear of Lightning@13] for good attack skill for general use.
- Add [[Swift Javelin@13] if running in team with orders/aegis chains etc.
- Add [["Go for the Eyes!"@9] for greater energy management. (The additional damage is insignificant against high-level foes)
- Add [[Anthem of Flame@12] or [[Anthem of Weariness@9] to keep up AR outside of battle instead of relying on [["There's Nothing To Fear!"], as well as provide additional damage or defense.
- For an alternative shout to AR, consider [["They're on Fire!"@12], since it doesn't require you to stop moving (though the extra damage reduction is often unnecessary).
- Add [["We Shall Return!"@9] and [[Blazing Spear@13] (replace Blazing Spear for [[Merciless Spear@13] 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.
- Optional: Have a +1+3 Leadership headpiece on for casting AR.
- 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@12] 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], [[Roaring Winds], and [[Well of Silence].
- Anti-adrenaline hexes such as [[Soothing Images] .
- Blind/Missing, Blocking, and Hexes that trigger on attacks.
- Replace [[Aggressive Refrain@12] with [[Flurry] for more intensive play, but higher IAS. (Not recommended for beginner imbagons)
- Add [[Wild Throw@13] instead of one of the attack skills to get through blocking stances.
- Add [[Hexbreaker Aria@12] to combat hexes in caster parties. Maintaining [["Save Yourselves!"] should be prioritized over Hex Removal, but you can still manage both.
- Add [["Fall Back!"@9] to decrease time spent during the run between mobs with an expense of losing some DPS. Not recommended when running with balanced team.
- Invest 8 pts in Tactics (or 9 if you want a Tactics shield) instead of Command and add [["To the Limit!"@8] 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). It is also a very good skill to maintain [[Aggressive Refrain@12].
- For optimal results, your team should have a character providing [[Dark Fury] and [[Order of Pain] (such as an Ether Renewal Orders Elementalist or Arcane Orders Dervish).
- A Sunspear Rank of at least 8 is preferable. If using [[Spear of Fury], your Kurzick/Luxon rank should be at least 3.
