Condition Quickness Firebrand is a popular build that can provide good DPS in combination with permanent Quickness, Fury, and some Might for your party.  The build has access to tomes and core guardian utility which can be utilised for on-demand Stability, condition cleanses, projectile reflects, providing Aegis and increased healing effectiveness. This flexibility when it comes to supportive capabilities makes this build a very strong pick in any type of situation.

If you are already familiar with Condition Firebrand, it should be relatively easy to adjust yourself to this variation of this specialisation.

Build Fundamentals

You should stay behind while facing your allies when using your Mantra of Solace and Mantra of Potence as those skills affect targets in a cone where you are facing.

The cooldown on your Tome of Justice can get reduced by killing enemies due to Renewed Justice, if this happens you need to adjust your rotation. Place Symbol of Vengeance or Symbol of Punishment before entering Tome of Justice again.

All your Mantra skills are instant cast so you can use them during casting of other skills.

Important Notes

Use Mantra of Solace, Mantra of Potence and "Feel My Wrath!" off cooldown to provide Quickness. Make sure to not spam your Mantra of Solace as it only gives Quickness once every 7 seconds.

Finishing your auto-attack chains is very important as Searing Slash deals very high damage compared to previous parts of the chain.

The trait Radiant Fire will proc every once in a while giving you the opportunity to use another proc of Zealot's Fire. Try to make sure you don’t waste this proc – by going into Tome of Justice as it procs as an example.

Another important tip on this matter is to try to never do the following sequence: Zealot's Fire (proc from Radiant Fire) Zealot's Flame Zealot's Fire. This skill sequence is not optimal as it will include an aftercast which will delay your rotation. To circumvent this problem, try to activate Zealot's Flame before the proc from Radiant Fire which when timed well will lead to the sequence Zealot's Fire Zealot's Fire without aftercasts. If this timing isn’t available, try to use another skill after Zealot's Fire (proc from Radiant Fire) before finishing the sequence with Zealot's Flame Zealot's Fire.

Group support

Using Epilogue:Eternal Oasis in Tome of Resolve will increase your party’s incoming healing by 33% and convert conditions to boons. Use it to counter high damage pressure, and cleanse conditions on your party members if necessary. You can follow with Chapter 2:Igniting Burst while in this time for even more condition cleansing.

Use Tome of Courage for Stability and damage reduction but be aware of using Epilogue:Unbroken Lines if tank is in other subgroup and is using low Toughness as you increase the toughness of your party. Epilogue:Unbroken Lines will grant Stability, Aegis, Protection, making it the strongest skill in this tome, but you can provide additional Stability with Chapter 1:Unflinching Charge and if needed, reflects with Chapter 3:Valiant Bulwark
