Active Mitigation and Cooldowns

You have one active mitigation ability that you need to use to keep yourself alive, which is Demon Spikes Icon Demon Spikes. This should be used frequently, even simply against auto-attacks. Always keep at least one of its charges rolling.

Aside from this, you also have a couple of other abilities you can use to help keep you alive.

Fiery Brand Icon Fiery Brand should be placed on the target when you think that they will deal high damage to you or when you simply want to reduce the damage you take.

In addition to that, you have access to a major survivability cooldown in Metamorphosis Icon Metamorphosis. This works both proactively (to increase your health in preparation for damage) and reactively as an emergency cooldown to heal you up when you drop low on health. Additionally, an additional Lesser Soul Fragment and an extra 20 Fury is generated when Fracture Icon Fracture or Shear Icon Shear is used.

While playing with Demonic Icon Demonic, Fel Devastation Icon Fel Devastation will trigger Metamorphosis Icon Metamorphosis for 8 seconds. In almost all situations, Metamorphosis Icon Metamorphosis is enough to survive, and this opportunity allows for Demon Spikes Icon Demon Spikes to recharge.
