  • The key to this build is the synergy of Hamstring and Fire Storm. Strike with a Hamstring attack to cripple your fleeing opponent, then rain fire down upon them as he slowly limps away. This ensures inevitable death upon your unfortunate foes.
  • Use "I Will Avenge You!" to profit from your fallen allies by healing your self and making you attack quicker, possibly the most powerful skill in the game.
  • Use Galrath Slash to bring more pain upon your enemy, dealing massive damage that will most likely kill.
  • When under enemy attack, use Defensive Stance to block attacks; this skill will make you invincible for a long period of time.
  • Use Chain Lightning to call in thunder from the heavens, which will strike down on your target and those near it.
  • Use Ice Spikes to shower a rain of frozen fury. This water hex will also slow down those adjacent to your target.
  • Finally finish off adjacent foes with Inferno, a powerful point blank area-of-effect skill which can kill multiple foes with Balthazar's flaming anger.


  • Not much can counter this powerful build. It is recommended that foes going against a warrior with this build quit Guild Wars immediately.
