    Introduction

    Condition Firebrand is a powerful, self-sufficient DPS build with flexible built-in utilities via Tome Skills.

    Build Fundamentals

    Damage foes with Axe/Torch and Pistol/Pistol before entering Tome of Justice for more damage.

    Use the flexibility of Tome Skills to adapt to the situation and provide damage, support, or utility as needed.

    Build Specifics

    Mantra skills are cast in a cone in front of you, so position yourself appropriately to deal damage or apply boons to allies. Mantra charges cast instantly and do not interrupt other skills, so use them while casting other skills to maximize efficiency.

    Radiant Fire creates an extra charge of Zealot's Fire upon critical strikes. To use this optimally, pre-cast Zealot's Flame, auto-attack until Radiant Fire adds an extra charge of Zealot's Flame, then use both charges consecutively.

    You can open Tome of Justice and Stow Tome while casting other skills without interrupting them. Use this to maximize DPS.
