Notes: You'll regularly build up a small damage boost.
Flux.jpg This build is negatively affected by the Flux: Like a Boss.
See the build's talk page for discussion and ramifications not noted here.  
Notes: You won't get much benefit out of being the boss, and camping a boss becomes much harder due to his faster skill activation.
Flux.jpg This build is positively affected by the Flux: Minion Apocalypse.
See the build's talk page for discussion and ramifications not noted here.  
Notes: Since minions do not use skills, Wastrel's Demise and Wastrel's Worry will not end early when used on a spawned minion, so those skills will be especially effective when used on a minion that is adjacent to an opposing player (e.g., while target minion is attacking an opposing player).

Use Domination Magic to nuke gates and quickly kill the Kurzick NPCs in Fort Aspenwood.
