Equipment

Usage

Weapon sets:

  • Use your sword for attacking.
  • Use your staff when you need to cast a non-attack energy skill but don't have the energy for it and to cast smiting prayer spells.
  • Switch to your shield set when you can't reach a foe to still gain adrenaline, when you're about to die or when you're idle.

Skills:

  • Apply Strength of Honor on self and cover it with Balthazar's Spirit.
  • Maintain Drunken Master.
  • Activate Hundred Blades when you start hitting foes to increase your damage output. Do not use it at the start of the combat for no particular reason while not in range of foes.
    • The damage is dealt to targets adjacent to you, not the attacked foe. Therefore you should always try to position yourself between foes.
  • Use Whirlwind Attack when multiple foes are standing adjacent to you.
  • Use Sun and Moon Slash for dealing additional damage.
    • Under the effect of both "For Great Justice!" and Dark Fury you can use this attack skill non-stop.
  • Fuel attack skills with "To the Limit!" for sooner and more frequent attack skill usage.

Counters

  • General anti physical.
    • Note that some usual counter skills won't be used against you because of your primary profession.
  • General anti melee.
  • Frequent or deep enchantment removal.
  • Stance removal.

Notes

As you provide smiting prayers support yourself you can adjust your support hero. For example, the hero can provide protection prayers.
