Side Chrono

Side chrono is currently one of the simpliest and yet most powerful duelist. Using high boon uptime and conditions to slowly but surely kill your opponent. It excels against power builds but really struggles into conditions. This build relies on a very slow playstyle, rotating defensives. As a chronomancer most of your defensive also have an offensive effect. Most of your cooldowns must be used as often as possible but in the right way! On staff you will want to auto attack as much as possible and keep clones up to autoattack with you to pressure your opponent. Make sure to try to keep some distance as doing so, you do not want to directly trade damage with melee classes. Use Chaos Storm inside ofContinuum Shift to gain extra Phase Retreat. Try to be in melee range forPhase Retreat as…

Power Chrono

Power Chronomancer  is one of the highest damage and highest skill floor builds in the game. Power Chrono is unique in its ability to ‘oneshot’ multiple opponents in a row with Continuum Split. Contrary to popular belief, power Chrono isn’t a oneshot build. Instead, its best to think of it as a roamer like Herald, but with the added ability to frontload almost all its damage by using Quickness and Alacrity. Power Chronomancer is played as a high-damage Roamer, meaning your job is to +1 a duelist or to get quick kills in teamfights. Avoid taking 1v1s or staying in extended fights, once Chrono starts running out of cooldowns its lack of defensive utility and condition cleanse makes it easy to focus. Always have a priority target in mind before you engage in any fight, and be proactive about leaving…

Curses Harbinger

Curses Harbinger is a powerful teamfight build centered around boon corruption and massive conditions damage and coverage. Harbinger fills a damage role in a team and pairs well with a support guard or tempest as it can be vulnerable to getting focused. The majority of your damage comes from Dark Barrage and your auto attack Tainted Bolts  in Harbinger shroud. Always make sure you are auto attacking in shroud to get maximum value from your quickness uptime and the damage output. Having high Blight can improve your skills. Devouring Cut will cost you 5 blight for 5 Torment and extra damage. Same for Voracious Arc but for a cost of 10 Blight. Elixir of Ambition is a press to win button, it gives you every boon of the game and applies every condi to each enemy you hit. You want…

Power Reaper

Reaper is the teamfighter with the highest damage potential, relying on Chilled to always be in range to hit its abilities. The idea of this build is to use Reaper's Shroud to get kills. Therefore, you will first have to build up life force. You want to stay outside of fights until you have enough life-force. Start every fight on staff. Chillblains should be used first so hitting every other mark is either, then Reaper's Mark right before swapping to axe to make sure to hit Spinal Shivers and Ghastly Claws. Keep in mind that Dread gives you Quickness when you apply Fear. That means Spectral Ring and Reaper's Mark can be used to speed up your combos out of shroud. Tip: Spectral Walk isn’t just a stunbreak… reactivate it if you’re being chased to teleport to your original location.…
