4. Role in the Current Meta

This build is ranked as a Top Tier solo pushing build for its class in the current Season.

This build is oriented mostly at solo Rifting (Greater and Normal). Due to its mediocre mobility on long distances, it is not recommended for Bounties. It is also not recommended for group Greater Rifts past the point where every party member can handle the content on their own.
