This build provides high DPS, good CC, generates a high amount of Vulnerability, and has insane survivability due to Dance of Death. You also have the ability to buff for your party via Assassin's Presence and 2 Renegades with Righteous Rebel can provide Alacrity for your group.

Build fundamentals

When learning the rotation, be weary of weapon swapping after stance swapping instead of doing it together to proc Sigils effects more often as Stance swapping counts as weapon swap.

Use Shattershot in-between casts of your other Shortbow skills while you have Embrace the Darkness active to make sure you don’t waste the empowered pulse of Embrace the Darkness. At the end of Mallyx part of the loop, use Sevenshot and Spiritcrush without Shattershot in-between.

CC (Crowd Control)

Alternatives

Traits

Swap Lasting Legacy for Righteous Rebel if your group needs Alacrity. As you will not be able to provide 100% uptime only by yourself, you will need another Renegade with Righteous Rebel or another class that can provide the rest of Alacrity.

If you use Righteous Rebel, you will have to adjust your rotation by only using Icerazor's Ire once during the Kalla part of the rotation or disabling Embrace the Darkness early – after you get empowered pulse from Spiritcrush.

You can swap Assassin's Presence for Thrill of Combat, if you already have another Renegade in your party running Assassin's Presence.
