OVERVIEW

  • Race: Orc
    • I choose Orc for its raw power, though other acceptable alternatives that will perform nearly as well and you can find them on our race guide page here.
  • Mundus: Shadow
  • Attributes:
    • Magicka: 0
    • Health: 24
    • Stamina: 40
  • Consumables
    • Food: Lava Foot Soup and Saltrice
      • In some groups (no Ebon, or a no death run, or just at low CP) you may wish you had more HP, in those cases run Orzorga’s Tripe Trifle Pocket!
    • Potion: Essence of weapon power

PARSE TIME

A couple of minor changes that will maximize your parse:

  1. Use Relequen instead of New Moon Acolyte (same traits/enchants)
  2. If you want to squeeze all damage out, re-spec all 64 Attribute Points into Stamina for parse

Rotation stays the same! Everything stays the same!
