    Introduction

    Condition Alacrity Specter is a strong offensive support that provides permanent Alacrity and some Might, Fury, and Swiftness. This Build also provides Barrier, healing, and great Crowd Control (CC) from the off-hand Pistol.

    This Build plays similarly to DPS Condition Specter.

    Build Fundamentals

    Provide Alacrity to allies by using skills in Enter Shadow Shroud. Then spend Initiative on Twilight Combo on Scepter/Dagger for damage off-cooldown and fill with Auto-attack chains. Swap to Scepter/Pistol if you need CC from Head Shot.

    Use Spider Venom and Skale Venom off-cooldown as long as there are allies nearby to scale your damage. When you are ready to Enter Shadow Shroud, make sure your initiative is as low as possible.

    Build Specifics

    Remember that you trigger Superior Sigil of Doom and Quick Pockets when entering and exiting Shadow Shroud due to it being considered a Weapon Swap.

    Remain in Shadow Shroud until you have used Grasping Shadows twice. While waiting to cast Grasping Shadows, use Eternal Night and fill with your auto-attack. Once you’ve cast Grasping Shadows twice, Exit Shadow Shroud. This will be sufficient to upkeep Alacrity.

    Alacrity is applied around your tethered ally, so you may have to change your tether target using Siphon if your tethered ally moves away to make sure you are affecting your whole team!

    While in Shroud, use Mind Shock if you need group Stability.
