    Introduction

    Condition Quickness Harbinger is a strong Offensive Support build. While this build doesn’t provide as many boons or as much utility as some other builds, its damage output is unmatched in the category.

    Unlike Death Shroud, Harbinger Shroud does not protect the Harbinger’s health pool while it is active. Harbinger profits off of self-inflicted stacks by utilizing shroud skills that consume the in exchange for more damage.

    This build uses a Jade Bot Core[s]: Tier 10 to gain extra Concentration via Twisted Medicine. You will still be able to upkeep 100% quickness without it, but the Jade Bot Core[s]: Tier 10 is recommended.

    Build Fundamentals

    Condition Quickness Harbinger plays extremely similarly to its full DPS counterpart.

    This Build provides via the passive pulsing in Harbinger Shroud thanks to Deathly Haste. Additional is generated by Elixir of Anguish and Elixir of Ambition.

    Use Harbinger Shroud, Elixir of Promise and Elixir of Anguish to stack up on yourself. You gain 2 stacks of every second while in Harbinger Shroud.

    To utilize your stacks, use Voracious Arc and Devouring Cut in Harbinger Shroud. These skills have a threshold of 5 stacks above which they will consume that to inflict extra .

    Make sure to transfer the self-inflicted conditions from Blood Is Power by using Deathly Swarm. Be quick, or else your teammates will cleanse your conditions before you can transfer them to the enemy. If necessary, move out of the group to avoid being cleansed.

    Always use Elixir of Ambition while above 10 stacks of , as this doubles the duration of the conditions it applies to enemies! Generally, Harbinger Shroud and your basic Elixirs generate enough that meeting this threshold isn’t an issue, but be careful during your opener and any phase transitions.

    Build Specifics

    The short Harbinger Shroud part at the start of the Opener is optional. Just make sure you are in combat before using Elixir of Anguish and Elixir of Ambition, or the boons will be removed by the encounter boonstrip!

    On Pistol, use Weeping Shots twice before weapon swapping or re-entering Harbinger Shroud; once at the start of the loop and once at the end.

    If you have 2 charges of Blood Is Power, use both charges before transferring the conditions to maximize DPS. You can typically fill the downtime between casts with another skill by following this sequence: Blood Is Power Vile Blast Blood Is Power Deathly Swarm.

    Elixir of Ambition gives you and your allies every boon in the game, including , , and . While it’s never worth it to delay this skill just for this, sometimes it will line up nicely with a mechanic and allow you to block or ignore an important attack.

    Alternatives

    Skills

    If you are using Epidemic or Corrosive Poison Cloud, try to use them after your Blood Is Power Deathly Swarm combo. These skills inflict you with some conditions that can interfere with transferring the and from Blood Is Power.
