Condition Quickness Berserker provides permanent Quickness and Fury for your sub group while dealing decent DPS. It also provides short bursts of Stability and Resistance when placing your banners. Condition Berserker in general is known for being easy to learn, but hard to master.

Build Fundamentals

One of the main things to keep in mind are using Shattering Blow and Blood Reckoning to increase the uptime of your Berserk and making use of the reduced Weapon Swap cooldown from Fast Hands.

While the pulsing boons from your banners are also valuable, your most important boon Quickness is only applied from your initial placement of the banner. So don’t place them before the boon strip that’s happening when the encounter starts.

After the initial placement, you can use Banners off-cooldown, preferably while you are on Longbow or outside of Berserk. You can delay placing them by a few seconds if you are approaching the end of Berserk and want to finish your rotation.

Try to place your Banners in a spot where your group will benefit from them the most. For example, if a boss is about to move, place them between your current position and where you’re about to move to. Keep in mind the 360 boon radius.

For learning purposes, the rotation can be broken down into a few main elements:

Upkeeping 25 stacks of Furious is hard to do but can be achieved by cleaving enemies and positioning your Scorched Earth so that it hits 3 times. Doing this correctly will noticeably improve your DPS.

Once you are comfortable with the rotation you can start to implement Savage Leap into it every time you swap to Sword/Torch. Using this in your fire fields will create a  Fire Aura on you due to Leap Finisher which you can then detonate using any Berserker skill for extra DPS, thanks to King of Fires.
