Rotation

Power DPS Soulbeast offers very strong burst damage making it a good pick for fights with short phases. It also offers group support with Leader of the Pack Spotter and Frost Spirit

The Longbow variant offers higher Burst Damage where Power Soulbeast shines, while the Greatsword variant pulls ahead in longer phases as it offers higher sustained DPS.

Build fundamentals

Always stay merged with your Pet Beastmode and flank enemies to benefit from Hunter's Tactics.

Remember to use "We Heal As One!" whenever you face downtime in DPS as it extends all your boons and activates Essence of Speed if you have Quickness.

To help with pulling mobs in some fights you can use Path of Scars. Be careful though as it can for example also pull Seekers on Vale Guardian or the allied Slubling on Slothasor.

CC (Crowd Control)

Pets

If you need extra CC swap out Red Moa for Rock Gazelle. Use Charge for CC and Kick off cooldown without delaying your priority skills in your Burst Rotation.

Skills

Replace Frost Trap with Frost Spirit if your squad doesn’t have it.

If your group needs condition cleanse swap out "We Heal As One!" for either Bear Stance or Healing Spring.

You can replace Frost Trap with the following skills assuming your squad already has Frost Spirit:

  • Dolyak Stance to grant Stability and extra damage reduction to your group.
  • Moa Stance to massively increase Boon Duration of your group for a short time. This skill also provides Fury, Protection, Regeneration, and Swiftness.

Traits

Replace Trapper's Expertise with Sharpened Edges if you aren’t using any Traps.

You can replace Essence of Speed with Predator's Cunning for a minor DPS increase and some extra sustain if you already have perfect boon uptime without Essence of Speed.
