Template code

Optional Optional: (use 9+1 attributes for a weapon spell, otherwise put those points in Dagger Mastery)

  • Weapon of Aggression Weapon of Aggression : can replace Drunken Master, higher energy cost and lower duration. Will be weaker than Drunken Master if you have alcohol. Can supplement a non-boosted Drunken Master if you really want 33% IAS but are trying to stay on the wagon.
  • Vital Weapon Vital Weapon : cheap and long-lasting weapon spell to trigger Spirit's Strength.
  • Lotus Strike Lotus Strike : energy management but ONLY if you're getting a weapon spell from another source in the group. Without an active weapon spell Spirit's Strength does nothing.

Do not take a weapon spell if your party has one of these weapon spells:

  • Splinter Weapon Splinter Weapon : should be carried by heroes (preferably at least 2 copies), not on this player bar.
  • Great Dwarf Weapon Great Dwarf Weapon : must be carried by another player due to its "other ally" stipulation.
  • Weapon of Fury Weapon of Fury : will help your energy management tremendously, but usually can't compete for a spot on the team over other elites.


  • Sight Beyond Sight Sight Beyond Sight : can replace Asuran Scan in areas where the major/only source of anti-melee is Blind, or if you want to free up a PvE slot/haven't unlocked Asuran Scan yet.


  • Zealous Daggers of Fortitude with Strength of Honor inscription.
  • Radiant Insignia. Runes of Attunement. Highest Vigor you can afford.
  • Alcohol is recommended to max out Drunken Master's effects.


  • Precast Spirit's Strength Spirit's Strength , your weapon spell (if you brought one yourself) and Drunken Master Drunken Master
  • Spam Jagged Strike Jagged Strike , Fox Fangs Fox Fangs then Death Blossom Death Blossom Repeatedly on your keyboard.
  • Use Asuran Scan Asuran Scan If you encounter anti-melee.
  • Use "I Am Unstoppable!" "I Am Unstoppable!" If you encounter knockdowns.
