ROTATION

  • We will apply our Dots
    • Skeletal Archer, Endless Hail, Barbed Trap, Poison Injection
  • Begin your spammable rotation
    • Blastbones > Acid Spray > Acid Spray — Repeat until battle is over, replacing an acid spray with whichever dot is falling off as necessary

Yeah, it’s that simple!

  • Insert Detonating Siphon anytime after the previous detonating siphon has blown up.

  • Use Resolving Vigor when necessary. We do not use Camouflaged Hunter, it is simply there for the passive it provides.

  • *For longer boss fights without adds, slot Venom Skull instead of Acid Spray. This will increase your single target damage, and help with your sustain.
