If you lack skill points you can:

  • Use less skill points on AT02 GrenadeAT02 Grenade, but not below level 4, as the most important part of this skill is to have the Weakness ExposureWeakness Exposure tripod for the synergy
  • if you still don't have enough skill points then you may remove some from Dexterous ShotDexterous Shot or Enforce ExecutionEnforce Execution, but this is not recommended.

How to play

  1. Cast Plasma BulletPlasma Bullet to proc your ConvictionConviction rune and deal damage.

  2. Cast AT02 GrenadeAT02 Grenade to proc your synergy that reduces the crit resistance to attack by all party members by -10%. This also gives time for your ConvictionConviction rune to proc from the previous skill.

  3. Cast EquilibriumEquilibrium to proc your JudgmentJudgment rune to grant you cooldown reduction and mana regeneration.

  4. Clay BombardmentClay Bombardment is your ultimate skill, you can use this for damage. Since this skill can be quite slow and is melee range, make sure the boss isn't going to jump away from it before casting.

  5. After your Conviction/Judgement proc, you can start to use your damage skills such as; Cruel TrackerCruel Tracker, Quick ShotQuick Shot and Meteor StreamMeteor Stream.

Continue to use your damaging skills, make sure to pair Plasma BulletPlasma Bullet with EquilibriumEquilibrium when your conviction/judgement combo is off cooldown. Otherwise, you can also use EquilibriumEquilibrium for damage alongside your other skills.

  1. Cast Dexterous ShotDexterous Shot or Enforce ExecutionEnforce Execution if you need mobility, or to deal extra damage. Make sure that you don't need them for mobility or Enforce ExecutionEnforce Execution for countering before using these skills for damage.

In summary, for utility, you can use:

  • Enforce ExecutionEnforce Execution as your counter
  • Cruel TrackerCruel Tracker and Quick ShotQuick Shot for Destruction
  • Meteor StreamMeteor Stream and Cruel TrackerCruel Tracker for stagger

EquilibriumEquilibrium, Cruel TrackerCruel Tracker and Quick ShotQuick Shot are some of your main damage skills that you can utilize their back attack on the boss. This isn't required for this build, but it is nice to note that the option for positional bonuses are there.
