1. Strengths

  • Very strong single target DPS for the duration of fiery greatsword
  • Fast condi ramp-up time

2. Weaknesses

  • Struggles in encounters with multiple hostile entities, causing 2 of the primary DPS skills and two traits to potentially be wasted on insignificant targets
  • Has access to gale for CC, but only when not using FGS and at very precise times
  • Very low cleave DPS and lack of AoE/range capabilities
  • Highly alacrity dependent
  • Hopeless against high mobility enemies
  • Slightly harder than Condi Tempest and more punishing if played incorrectly

3. Current Viability

Condition Weaver is currently a much stronger build than Condition Tempest under all circumstances.
The trait  allows the Weaver to skip the and run the much higher damage .
Also the addition of allows for a bit higher DPS due to more burning compared to .
Another benefit is the addition of the trait , this increases your crit chance to 100% on bosses with Weakness making it more likely for  and  to proc, even though it only has a miniscule effect on your actual DPS.
