Using quick flare spam and spiking skills, this will take down targets fast. Hopefully.

Usage

  • Flares spam flare on the same target, and use Fireball on charge.
  • Meteor to catch runners and zap monks while spiking.
  • When spiking, use Shell Shock, quickly followed by Chest Thumper for Deep Wound, then Flare/Fireball the target down. Rodgort Flare uses RI for high damage in the spikes.
  • Use Mind Blast for non-BiP energy management. Use it on warriors.
  • Monks heal and protect, Paragon provides some additional healing to relieve the monks of work.
  • If fighting builds like IWAY, or something with a few melees in it, clump together, have them attack you, then Lava Font their faces off and spike with Flare. Watch as the enemy monk /ragequits as he couldn't catch a Lava Font + Flare spike.

Counters

<pvxbig>

  • [[Shield of Absorption@14] and [[Shielding Hands@14] can be annoying, but just switch target.
  • [[Backfire@14], but noone uses it.

Notes

  • If the enemy monk catches your spike, don't worry. You've got the fastest recharging spike in the game. Just spike again.
