  • Full Survivor's Insignias, you won't need the extra energy.
  • Vampiric Daggers help you survive and add pressure.


  • 1) Maintain Zealous Vow as much as possible.
  • 2) Use Whirling Charge as both a speed buff to help against kiting enemies and an IAS.
  • 3) Cast Augury of Death on the target.
  • 4) Start your chain [1 -> 2 -> 3]
  • 5) Spam Repeating Strike while renewing ZV and WC as they become available.
  • 6) Use Shadow Refuge if you come under pressure, you should always get the self heal as you should almost always be attacking.


  • Common anti-melee counters such as blind or Necro/Mesmer hexes.


  • You may switch out Golden Fox Strike and/or Fox Fangs for any other lead + offhand.


  • This is a PRESSURE build. It is not meant to spike an enemy.
