Usage

  • Call spikes very frequently. Every 5-8 seconds is a good pace, depending on how frequently the midline or frontline partner calls.
  • Use teardown enchantments appropriately. Removing Rending Aura for Cracked Armor on spikes with either Pious Fury or Wounding Strike should be done whenever possible. Removing Grenth's Fingers with Wounding Strike will clean Blind before the Wounding Strike lands, while Pious Fury can be used to remove Cripple.
  • Use Eremite's Zeal to maintain energy.

Counters

  • hex snares
