Follow the Stamblade Meta

Presented by @RainFire

This build is your typical meta end-game build, with minimal variation. This is glass cannon style in that you have minimal survivability in order to maximize dps gain.

Primary Gear Setup

Monster sets (2x Medium or 1x  Medium, 1x Heavy)

  • 2x Selene’s (Divine Trait)
  • 2x Velidreth (Divine Trait)

Body: 5x Relequen (Divine Trait)

Jewelry: 3x Advancing Yokeda (Bloodthirsty/Infused Traits)

FrontBar: 2x Advancing Yokeda Daggers (Infused Trait)

Backbar: 1x vMA bow (Infused Trait)

Gear Notes: All body pieces should be max stam enchant, jewels should be any combination of bloodthirsty/infused (I prefer 2 bloodthirsty 1 infused) with weapon damage enchant.  And your front bar daggers should be 1x poison, 1x stamina drain while your back bar bow is weapon damage.  Also note that perfected relequen is preferred but not mandatory. imperfect relequen does just fine.

Back Bar:

  • Endless Hail
  • Razor Caltrops
  • Poison Injections
  • Rearming Trap
  • Leeching Strikes
  • Incapacitating Strikes

Front Bar:

  • Surprise Attack
  • Relentless Focus
  • Killer’s Blade
  • Rending Slashes
  • Rearming Trap
  • Flawless Dawnbreaker (Incapacitating Strike if running War Machine)

Rotation

Rotation Intro

The rotation is dynamic in the sense of maintaining all your abilities while also focusing on only casting 3 abilities on your bow bar and procing Relentless Focus.

Prefight

First buff up with Leeching Strikes then Relentless focus. Immediately lay down Rearming Trap with a barswap cancel to an Endless Hail cast. At this time you will want to pop your first Weapon Power pot.

Starting out

Start out with Endless Hail then follow this rotation:

Endless Hail > Light Attack (LA) > Caltrops > LA > Poison Injection > Barswap Cancel > LA > Rending Slashes > Barswap Cancel > LA > Incapacitating Strike > Barswap Cancel > LA > Relentless Proc > Surprises Attack LA weave x 4 > LA > Relentless Proc > LA > Barswap Cancel > Endless Hail

When Incap is not available

That is the rotation for when Incapacitating Strike is available. Below is the rotation you will use when Incapacitating Strike Is not available. Now thanks to that LA > Barswap Cancel > Endless Hail, we now have 1 count available.

Endless Hail > Light Attack (LA) > Caltrops > LA > Poison Injection > Barswap Cancel > LA > Rending Slashes > LA > Relentless Proc > LA Rearming Trap (You can also barswap cancel to Leeching Strikes if Rearming still have time on it) > Surprises Attack LA weave x 3 > LA > Relentless Proc > LA (Can also weave in Rearming Trap here) > Barswap Cancel > Endless Hail

Execute Rotation

LA > Rearming Trap > Killer’s Blade LA weave till Endless Hail runs out > LA Barswap Cancel > Endless Hail > LA > Poison Injection > LA > Incapacitating Strike/Leeching > Barswap Cancel > Relentless Proc > Killer’s Blade LA weave till Rearming Trap and Hail drop off.
