About This Build

Obviously fast damage is the focus of Shatterstorm, but it achieves this without losing a great deal of flexibility and utility. The stealth options add survivability but the loss of crowd control can be felt in large battles. That is unless you count burning someone from half health to dead in a few keystrokes.

The burst damage makes this a great compliment for a roaming duo with a rogue and small scale combat. Spvp is the perfect environment to enjoy this build but the lack of strong condition removal will be felt overall.

In small team combat you will need to focus on stacking vulnerability and stealthing your crew into the fight for first strike advantage. If you think you need portal to increase mobility and survivability drop Decoy for it.
