Equipment

Armor

Weapons

Use

Weapon set usage:

  • Use your vampiric scythe as your main combat weapon and your zealous scythe whenever you need the energy.
  • Switch to your staff when you need to cast an energy skill but have run out of energy.
  • Switch to your shield set when you're under heavy attack or idle.

Skill usage:

  • Use Avatar of Balthazar before combat and renew it if it runs out mid-combat.
  • Keep your flash enchantments up and apply conditions on foes by disenchanting yourself with Twin Moon Sweep, Wearying Strike and Pious Fury.
    • Against foes that are weak to holy damage, make sure you do not maintain Staggering Force or Dust Cloak for any length of time so you can instead use Avatar of Balthazar's damage conversion on your attacks. Use these two flash enchantments immediately before teardowns.
  • Always move near a target which has been hexed with Fevered Dreams.
  • Use Reap Impurities to deal AoE damage and remove conditions from foes, triggering Fragility and allowing Fevered Dreams to apply daze again with new condition applications.
    • Do not chain Reap Impurities right after Wearying Strike to avoid removing Deep Wound.


Counters

  • General anti melee.
  • General anti physical.
  • Interrupted avatar.
  • Foes immune to both burning and bleeding.
