General tactics (All fights):
Ideally you are wanting the Second Wind
talent, along with Avatar
, as it has the highest overall damage boost. (There are some fights where Bloodbath
is better - But it will be stated further into this post on the "Fight-Specific Tactics" part).
You should also be making sure to, of course, have Mass Spell Reflection
(As the other two Tier 5 talents can't affect you), and at least two Potion of Brawler's Might
Pre-potting with Potion of Brawler's Might
is the best idea (Hence owning two per fight) and then using the next one as soon as it's ready, alongside all of your DPS cooldowns.
Most other benefits are negligible until higher up fights or your gear is lower than average (I'm working with full 463 or better gear - As that's what I had until reaching Rank 7).
Fight-Specific Tactics (Blat):
You want to avoid, at all costs, movement-speed reducing effects (Glyph of Hindering Strikes
, and Piercing Howl
) - As they will just cause you to have to be closer to the adds the boss will spawn to remain dealing your full damage output.
When you use all of your DPS Cooldowns with the second Potion of Brawler's Might
, also use Die by the Sword
, so you don't have to worry about running around to stay alive - But keep an eye on when it runs out and put some distance between you and his adds when it's got around 2 seconds remaining.
