Player builds

Both players should have "Save Yourselves!". Ideally one player brings Ebon Battle Standard of Honor to improve the damage output against targets with more health points or too loosely standing to be cut down with Splinter Weapon.

Usage

  • Each player is supposed to bring one of the mesmers, one of the ritualists and one of the healers. This allows for easy splinter weapon micro management and helps to spread the mesmer shutdown, aswell as helps to provide both players with healing despite individual overextending.
  • Focus on translating Splinter Weapon into damage; dealing AoE damage and giving the keystone heroes the opportunity to trigger keystone signet effectively is more important than picking out usual priority targets.
  • Split your damage against Spirit Bond or other protection prayers.

Counters

  • Balling against Ineptitude and Clumsiness.
  • Protection prayers such as Spirit Bond and Aegis.
  • Heroes out of "Save Yourselves!" range.
