Skill Priorities

Prioritize Orders from Above. Be sure to save energy for it.

Save energy for your CC skills if a breakbar is coming up.

Use Icerazor's Ire two times in Legendary Renegade Stance, for example:

  1. Icerazor's Ire
  2. Situational fill skills:
  3. Icerazor's Ire to bring you under 10 energy
  4. swap Legendary Stances

Use Impossible Odds for as long as possible in Legendary Assassin Stance. Typically this means using Impossible Odds, Citadel Bombardment, and either Orders from Above or some combination of your sword skills.

Heroic Command can be used to supplement your party’s might, or to quickly drain your energy before swapping Legendary Stances.

This build offers permanent Alacrity, some Might, some Protection and some Vulnerability. It also provides huge amounts of Crowd Control as well as group support through Assassin's Presence.

This is the power foil to Condition Alacrity Renegade.

While Condition Alacrity Renegade is generally more popular, Power build excels at encounters that benefit from CC: SlothasorKeep ConstructSamarogQadim.

Additionally, Power Alacrity Renegade can make easy swaps to provide Stability  with Inspiring Reinforcement or projectile blocks with Protective Solace, making it an extremely common pick for a few encounters: Conjured AmalgamateCardinal SabirCardinal Adina.

Build fundamentals

This build provides Alacrity through Orders from Above combined with Righteous Rebel. Upkeeping Alacrity is as easy as pressing Orders from Above off-cooldown. Additionally, you can supplement your party’s Might by using Heroic Command.

With roughly 80% boon duration on this build, you shouldn’t have much problem with upkeeping 100% Alacrity. If your uptime is low, you can swap your Assassin’s Helmet for a Diviner one to further increase your boon duration. However, this will make you drop below crit-cap, harming your DPS and usually, it’s not a problem with boon duration, but rather with positioning or not timing your Orders from Above well (when the group is spread or will spread in a moment for example).

The difficulty in this build is in resource management. Orders from Above costs 20 energy to cast, and does not align with your rotation. Therefore you must adjust your rotation to have sufficient energy to cast Orders from Above off of cooldown. You will either have to skip some of your sword or utility skills.

In Legendary Renegade Stance you want to prioritize Icerazor's Ire as it does big damage.

In Legendary Assassin Stance you want to land as many hits as you can under Impossible Odds as it’s a huge damage buff.

If you have excess energy use your sword skills Chilling Isolation, Shackling Wave, and Deathstrike. Additionally Citadel Bombardment can be combined with Impossible Odds or Razorclaw's Rage for large damage.

Typically swapping Legendary Stances will bring you to 50 energy. Charged Mists increases this to 75 energy if you are at less than 10 energy before swapping. Be sure to drain your energy before swapping as this extra 25 energy is a large resource boost.
