Usage

  • Use Empathy to discourage/punish physical attackers.
  • Use Psychic Distraction to shut down key skills. Once your team gets a kill, prioritize Resurrection Signets.
  • Use Diversion to disable predicted skills for an even longer duration than PD.
  • Wastrel's Demise should primarily be used to force skill use so you can PD/Divert them. Use for damage as the opportunity arises though (pets will die quickly to WD, which disables the skills of its ranger for a short while).
  • Drain Enchantment for energy.
  • Use Resurrection Signet when you have a valid target for it.

Counters

  • Caster-hate will also apply to you.
  • You are not a major damage dealer, you need some damage in your team too.
