General Information

This page outlines the basic setup of the Condi FB Build for Guild Wars 2.

The Griever variant gives consistently higher DPS than the other variants, but is currently very hard to acquire. Both the Sinister and Viper variants are very close in terms of DPS, Sinister is less RNG, but the Viper variant has the advantage of not having to use the heal mantra every 10 seconds.

Notes

  • Mantra skills have an instant cast so they can be used at any point in the rotation. The range is very short though, so try to position yourself so that you hit as many targets as possible.
  • Cast off cooldown, and save for when you think the boss is going to die in the next ~7seconds.
  • Use whenever is off cooldown.
  • If using the Griever or Sinister Variants with , then should also be used at the same time as . This is due to the 6th rune bonus applying burning to nearby foes whenever you use use a heal skill, while also sharing the same internal cooldown as .
  • Make sure you always proc  with  so that you share Ashes of the Just to your allies. You have to be careful because  can waste it by granting quickness only to yourself.
  • Precast  and  before the fight starts.
  • Try to avoid casting or  unless at the end of the fight, to prevent them from going on full cooldown.
  • Cast  whenever procs.
  • If  is on 1second cooldown or you have no symbol down, and  is off cooldown. Use  but hold it until you have placed  before throwing .
  • In the event that  comes off cooldown, but is still on 2-3seconds cooldown, it’s usually better to wait and cast  again before entering .
  • Ashes of the Just doesn’t stack, so if you enter  and  comes off cooldown before you use Epilogue: Ashes of the Just then it’s better to cast  immediately. Delay Epilogue: Ashes of the Just by a few seconds but make sure to use it before  runs out of pages.
