This build uses the Ranger elite skill Infuriating Heat to super-buff adrenaline gain, and thus, damage, from your physicals. This results in big damage from your Warriors, Paragons, and any other class using adrenaline attacks. Other adrenaline-based skills will also be buffed. This allows for more frequent use of adrenaline-heavy skills like "Save Yourselves!" and Stunning Strike.

- For more AoE damage, take Whirling Defense to help with larger enemy groups.

- For player, Drunken Master with a decent Deldrimor rank will be a better than Lightning Reflexes. It will also make Drunkard Title a bit less monotonous.
- Serpent's Quickness and Dwarven Stability can be used to reduce the recharge of Volley to 1 second in order to spam it as much as you would Barrage.
- Summon Spirits for mobility of spirits. This minimizes casting time and maximizes mob killing.
