How to Use The Legacy of Raekor Set

The Legacy of Raekor set offers a Furious Charge Furious Charge-centric setup, which is deceptively versatile. While it locks you down into using Furious Charge Furious Charge, you can adapt the skill to either be your main source of damage (by cubing Standoff Standoff and Vile Ward Vile Ward; also, look into mixing with the Immortal King set), or using it as means of ramping the damage of another skill of your choosing. The result is always a very mobile, higher skill cap build, appealing to a particular subset of players.

  • 2-piece bonus
    • Furious Charge refunds a charge if it hits only 1 enemy.
  • 4-piece bonus
    • Furious Charge gains the effect of every rune and deals 1000% increased damage.
  • 6-piece bonus
    • Every use of Furious Charge increases the damage of your next Fury-spending attack by 5500%. This effect stacks. Every use of a Fury-spending attack consumes up to 5 stacks.

The 2-piece bonus of The Legacy of Raekor set refunds one charge of Furious Charge Furious Charge, if said skill hits only one enemy. This simple bonus is vital for the set's performance against Rift Guardians, which are usually one-on-one fights; this set bonus fills the gaps left by the rune staple for this skill, Merciless Assault Merciless Assault.

The 4-piece bonus of The Legacy of Raekor set provides both a simple damage amp for Furious Charge Furious Charge, as well as a vastly more important boon: gaining the effect of every rune. The extra damage of Battering Ram Battering Ram, the cooldown reduction of Merciless Assault Merciless Assault, the Fury generation of Stamina Stamina, the freezing effect of Cold Rush Cold Rush and the extra charge storage of Dreadnought Dreadnought work together to ensure devastation of your enemies and the set's signature supercharged speed.

The 6-piece bonus of The Legacy of Raekor set contains the dynamic of the spender-centric Raekor playstyles (i.e. the Hammer of the Ancients Hammer of the Ancients Raekor build, or the Ancient Spear Ancient Spear Raekor build), and can be skipped if you focus of Furious Charge Furious Charge damage. It provides a stacking damage buff for your Fury-spending attacks as you charge around, which is spent in 5-stack chunks and usually timed with other bonuses, such as Convention of Elements Convention of Elements cycles. This leads to the signature, high skill cap plays of the set.
