Playstyle

Role: DPS

Stay Unleashed to gain more damage modifiers. Only Unleash your pet during a short time when all your skills are on cooldown and you can quickly use all of the Pet’s Unleashed Abilities and your Ambush skill. Use your heaviest hitting/low cooldown weapon skills like Hammer 4/2 and Sword 2/3, then fill in the gaps with Frost Trap, Storm Spirit, and toggling Unleash to your pet so it can use its abilities and then you can return to Unleashing yourself to use your ambush. By then your low cooldown weapon skills will have returned and you can swap weapon.

Remember to CTRL + Right Click your Pet’s non-unleashed damaging abilities so that they auto cast them, but do not enable this for CC skills so you can have them when you need them.

Always begin by using all of your pet’s unleashed F1-3 abilities and then swapping back to use your ambush skill. This combination of skills does the most damage, but since it is so clunky to swap between unleashes only do this later on when your weapon skills and weapon swap are on cooldown.

Alternatives

  • Untamed: when you want to provide Quickness to your allies. Use your weapon swap and Ambush skills (1) to trigger this. You’ll need a lot of boon duration to achieve full uptime, so this isn’t suggested as a dedicated quickness provider.
