This build requires a rating. Please apply the appropriate tag based upon consensus.

This build has been designed for the following use:

A commonly run Wounding Strike Dervish utilizing the defensive capabilities of Hex Breaker, since Dervishes do not need stances it is a great aid against anti-melee or snaring hexes. This is most commonly run in teams with not as much hex removal as a balanced team, to compensate.

  • Sundering/Vampiric/Zealous Scythes of Fortitude with the "Guided By Fate" inscription.

  • Enchantment stripping.
  • Normal melee counters- blind, weakness, block etc.
  • Energy denial can cause problems.
