A ranged dps build that works well in dungeons and the New York raid.


Final Fuse

For short fights, using this instead of Highly strung will be beneficial to the group.

Immortal Spirit & Coney Island band

This build works best once you acquire a Coney Island band, Immortal spirit will allow you to activate it and will offset any health lost without a healer keeping you alive.

Highly strung

If you’re very used to the build and no longer make any mistakes with the rotation you can use this passive instead of Closer.


DPS builds in general focus on boosting their consumers as much as possible.

This specific build requires less resources and spends more time casting consumers then on builders. You will be tapping into your own health for more power as well.

Do or Die roots the player in place while it’s activated (10 seconds), re-activating DoD will remove both the damage component and the root allowing you to move again.

The rotation is displayed above and Exsanguinate will be casted at 0 resources during Elemental Force as such you will require healing every now and then to stay alive.

In the New York raid you will have to manually place fire manifestation on the metal grating in order to hit the Lurker. If you’re having trouble doing this you can change the rotation to applying fire manifestation after exsanguinate, this allows you to place the manifestation during exsanguinates channel, and cast it right after without losing time not casting abilities.
