    This Celestial Booster Vindicator is great offensive build made for open-world and is beginner friendly. The equipment above is designed to be played with the Exotic gear obtained by the Level 80 Boost, with some modifications to runes, weapons, and sigils. If one does not have the level 80 booster available to them then the equipment can be obtained through crafting or purchasing directly from the trading post. This build utilizes the Vindicator elite specialization of a Revenant, which changes the dodge mechanic significantly. Instead of rolling in a cardinal direction, Vindicators dodge upward and into the mists, then smashing downward to damage enemies.

    Build Fundamentals

    This variant specializes in melee power damage, using the Greatsword abilities, Legend abilities. Don’t underestimate Death Drop damage output, it is one of the major sources and has a significant upside: it doesn’t cost energy! (but still costs endurance, which is the resource used for dodging across all classes) instead, energy can be spent on Weapon and Legend abilities.

    Build Specifics

    Impossible Odds is an upkeep skill, it will slowly drain your energy while active instead of one chunk of energy like other skills. In return, all your attacks will get enhanced and cause an additional strike. Vengeful Hammers is an upkeep skill as well and summons rotating hammers around you which deal damage continously. For ease of use, put both these upkeep skills on the same slot in the utility bar.

    • While costy, spending 30 energy for Inspiring Reinforcement which grant pulsing to you and allies, it can be more than worth it if used before being CC’d by enemies.
    • With a costly elite skill of 40 energy a piece, you can apply 50% bonus damage reduction for 5 second on up to five allies, Rite of the Great Dwarf is used in niche scenarios, and has immense power when utilized correctly.

    Alternatives

    This build is similar in playstyle to Power Vindicator, which trades survivability and tankiness for tremendous amounts of damage.
