About This Build

This condition build is designed for a slow burn while you roll in and out of combat applying all manner of horrible crap. This is not a fast kill but the toughness it provides will keep you in a fight long after a glass cannon is dead. Watch the video for rotations and skill specifics. This build is by Madnek and his videos are all a good watch and very entertaining.
