Last Updated: September 28th 2023

Introduction

The Chaos build heavily focuses on large Area of Effect (AoE) skills with low cooldowns to clear the content as fast as possible. This content isn't difficult and can easily be completed by spamming skills.

It is advice to have spare accessories without First Intention on them, because Esoteric Skills(Spenders) provides larger AoE to help clearing density better.

The Combat Stats are not as important as they are for PvP or Raid builds. Simply use the recommended Raid gear and Combat Stat distribution from the First Intention Wardancer Raid Guide and Esoteric Skill Enhancement Wardancer Raid Guide.

Chaos Dungeon Skill Build

  • Esoteric Skill: Call of the Wind God is a really strong pack clearing skill as it vacuums nearby mobs and does decent damage over time while channeling.
  • Roar of Courage debuffs Elites and Bosses granting higher Critical Strike chance to burst them down for the Cooldown refresh.
  • Wind's Whisper gives a lot of Attack Speed, Critical Chance and a damage buff to hasten the clearing speed.
  • Sweeping Kick is a very strong boss bursting skill that can do some linear AoE and mob clearing as well.
  • Swift Wind Kick is a filler skill that generates a decent amount of Identity Gauge, enabling spender skill usage.
  • Seismic Strike is used as filler AoE skill for clearing trash mobs pack.

  • Lightning Kick grants mobility and has a low Cooldown. This becomes very spammable thanks to the 40% Cooldown Reduction buff from breaking Rift Cores.
  • Energy Combustion is used for some passive damage overtime and generates a decent amount of Identity Gauge gain. It helps save potions thanks to its defensive buff and maxing this skill out later on will deal great damage as well.

Gameplay

Chaos Dungeon is fairly easy to complete. A simplified rotation is used:

  1. Get Energy Combustion up all the time for the passive damage ticks and Identity Gauge gain.
  2. Buff up with Wind's Whisper before channeling Esoteric Skill: Call of the Wind God and bursting with Sweeping Kick.
  3. Apply the Roar of Courage critical strike resistance debuff on Elites and Bosses for higher chance to critical strike. Kill them quickly to get a Cooldown refresh.
  4. If a Red Portal (Boss Room) appears, switch to Raid Build for better damage against the single boss then switch back to this AoE build after killing the Boss.
  5. You don't have to be conservative with Awakening skill usage, as the Cooldown refresh and Cooldown Reduction buff from Elites/Bosses and Rift Core works on Awakening skills as well.
  6. Killing Elites/Bosses will grant 40%/100% Cooldown refresh while breaking Rift Cores will grant 40% Cooldown Reduction buff.

Combat Stats

Sub-stat priority is not important, as the content is easy as long as the player is using matching Tier Gear and accessories.

Runes

Runes enhance Skills with extra bonuses. All Rune drops are account bound and have limited availability, so placement of Runes on the correct Skills is important. Below are the recommend parings. Check the Rune Guide for more details.

  • If the player has obtained Conviction and Judgment runes, slot in Conviction on Energy Combustion as it's a constant ticking damage skill that triggers it often. Use Swift Wind Kick with its many multihits to trigger Judgment to get 15% Cooldown reduction before using other skills.
  • Seismic Strike is paired with Bleed because it has a lingering ground AoE that allows you to apply it to as many mobs as possible.
  • Quick Recharge is used on Lightning Kick because of its low Cooldown. After getting the 40% Cooldown reduction buff from breaking Rift Cores this can be spammed to get the Cooldown refresh from the rune.

Summary

  • Make sure to have Energy Combustion up for its constant damage and Identity Gauge gain. This allows you to generate orbs faster and enables the use of Esoteric Skill: Call of the Wind God.
  • Buff up with Wind's Whisper before bursting the packs of mobs and elites with Sweeping Kick and Esoteric Skill: Call of the Wind God.
  • If the player has the Conviction and Judgment combo, make sure to look for Conviction buff trigger before using Swift Wind Kick to proc Judgment effect.
  • Switch to a Raid Build for better single target damage when you encounter a Red Portal (Boss Room) then switch back to this AoE build for the next portal.
  • Killing Elites/Bosses and breaking Rift Cores grant Cooldown refresh or Cooldown Reduction buff.
  • Use an Awakening skill whenever a group of Elites are close together so the Awakening skill can have its Cooldown refreshed and ready to be use for the next packs. Killing Bosses refreshes the Cooldown completely as well , so don't be too conservative with Awakening skill usage.
