Robust Spirit Soulfist Build Guide for PvE

Build

required skill points: 328

The Robust SpiritRobust Spirit is the more famous build that turns your Soulfist into a literal burst monster, landing the attack with the highest damage numbers in the game: World DecimationWorld Decimation. The build gets rid of your lower Hype levels 1 and 2, making you enter Hype level 3 every time you activate your identity.

On top of that, your energy recovery speed doubles and you’ll get bonus damage, making you shift toward a full out burst damage playstyle with strong burst windows. For this reason we want to focus\on our Awakening Skill World DecimationWorld Decimation, using it every time it’s up when running this build. This allows us to deal the most damage within the Enhanced Hype level 3 mode.

Since World DecimationWorld Decimation is a static skill that takes a long time to cast, you need to get a good feeling for all the mechanics to master this build. Oh and you will also need a fair amount of patience!

How to play

This build has one goal: Land your World DecimationWorld Decimation while fully buffed.

If it sounds simple, it's not! You need to practice your setup so you don't have to think about it. That frees up your brain to instantly see the opportunity when you can cast it successfully on the boss.

Here's what the setup looks like:

  1. Make sure all key self buffs are active- for example any engraving or set bonuses you might have.
  2. Activate LvL 3 Hype
  3. Optional: Request buffs from allies if you have them.
  4. Cast Energy ReleaseEnergy Release for self buff.
  5. Cast World DecimationWorld Decimation and pray it lands in time, because that's all you can do while animation locked!

As you can see there is significant setup, and you need to become fluid at recognizing opportunities and capitalizing on them, so keep practicing!

Skill Usage Priority

Although World DecimationWorld Decimation is the focus of this build, a significant portion of your damage will come from landing your abilities. After all, Awakenings have a long cooldown and you need to be using all those skills on your bar.

The most important thing to remember is that your self buffs DO NOT STACK, so use your best one, Energy ReleaseEnergy Release, before your hardest hitting skills. A typical skill rotation might look like this:

  1. Activate LvL 3 Hype if its available
  2. Energy ReleaseEnergy Release for self buff
  3. Merciless PummelMerciless Pummel behind the enemy
  4. ShadowbreakerShadowbreaker for buff and damage
  5. Force OrbForce Orb
  6. Pulverizing PalmPulverizing Palm for buff
  7. Heavenly SquashHeavenly Squash
  8. Lightning PalmLightning Palm

Remember that Flash StepFlash Step is primarily for mobility with the buff being a bonus.
