DESCRIPTION

A simple yet effective Dungeon DPS build revolving around a focus attack during Elemental Force.

SITUATIONAL ABILITIES

Spiral of death or Surging Blade

Mobility, keeps you from dying or gets you back into action after running out of filth explosions a little bit faster. Replace Steel Echo or sling Blade.

Bamboo Cutter

AoE builder, when multiple targets need to be mowed down use this. Replace Steel Echo or sling Blade.

HOW IT WORKS

DPS builds in general focus on boosting their consumers as much as possible.

This specific Elemental Force build super-charges Dancing Blade in order to achieve great numbers.

The rotation is fairly simple,

Auxiliary weapon attack/Sling Blade
Grass cutter x5
Tear ’em Up x1
Dancing Blade (Elemental Force)

    I think you might mean Reckless instead of Berserk.

    As for rotation, Sling Blade (and Timber, if you are using it) should probably be done at the very start of the rotation. If queued up while channelling Dancing Blade, they will benefit from Tear ‘Em Up (previous rotation cycle).

    Hey cucco thanks for noticing and yeah, timber/sling blade should be after DB. fixing ;)

    I generally use 31111132 into 1111131231111132 now that Seal the Deal isnt an issue. Doubles the uptime on tear em up, and gives me a totally open utility slot. Extra helpful when tanking the raid and I actually NEED my utility slots.

    so i’m trying to work a variation of this with blade/chaos (from the tokyo build).

    any thought/opinions on how this will stack up?
