General Info




This build has very very potent healing, especially on our back bar. Leeching strikes activates our siphoning passive for added healingm powered 1h adds more as well, and so does our draugr heritage 2 piece. With the 8% from heavy armor, and 5% from orc passives, and the 2%from troll king, you are getting massive heals.


We are using the dark cloak morph of shadow cloak, which is a very underrated skill in pvp at the moment.  When stacking high health this skill becomes very strong, hence the reason for the infused health glyph on our shield, making us sit at around 27k hp. After all factors are taken into account, on our back bar dark cloak becomes a 6k (not counting possible crits) over 3 seconds HoT, which is pretty nice. Our healing rotation is simple, heavy attack, vigor, bar swap, dark cloak. We also sit around 900~ up recov, giving us some extra heals.  Half the time, troll king will do the work of healing for us anyway.  We also have blood craze ticking on our enemies, which gives us a heal on par with forward momentum HoT, but if multiple targets are affected, you gain healing from all of them.

You may ask why dual weild instead of 2h?  There are a few reasons why:

1. Crit, extra crit from daggers helps a lot

2. Stacking heals with blood craze on multiple targets

3. Ruffian passive 

4. Quick cloak

5. Procing see her more reliably.  Fully charged heavy into blood craze into bash gives us 5 opportunities to proc our ravager, makingbwasier to maintain uptime. 

It is possible to use this setup with 2h, just by changing a few skills. Drop quick cloak, flying blade, blood craze, and mist form, and pick up double take, carve, trap beast, and forward momentum .  Both setups are good, but I prefer the dual weild.

We are running relentless focus on our back bar 2 reasons as well.

1. Our main stun is on our back bar, so hitting with a reverb then merciless in quick succession is easier this way

2. I wanted to have room for vigor on my front bar, out of preference.  I find it more effective to a heal on each bar.


Sustaining is pretty easy on this build as well, we are in heavy, pumping tenacity, as well as using leeching strikes, as well as stamina siphoning enchant and poison. My philosophy is HEAVY CANCLE EVERYTHING .  It gives us great resource return, as well as healing because of leeching strikes, around 2k every heavy.


I play this build very defensively.  Constantly heavy attack canceling every thing waiting for a ravager proc, once it does you choose a target, hit em with a few surprise attacks, and then either dawnbreaker surprise attacks, or reverb relentless. Best way to get that ravager proc is by doing a heavy attack, Bloodcraze, bash combo.
