Notes

Off Tank Gear

Adds Gear

For adds you run a full debuff setup with Yolnahkriin, Thurvokun and whatever set is needed from Alkosh, Livewire and Frozen Watcher. The reason you use Yolnahkriin is because you usually taunt ranged adds and the Main Tank taunts melee adds to they use Dragon’s Defilement.

Typically you shouldn’t need 2x Alkosh but you could. Livewire will increase DPS in add phases as you’ll causes AoE concussion and Off Balance very reliably, make sure you use a Lightning Staff with Livewire. If your group needs AoE Minor Brittle then you could use Frozen Watcher with an Ice Staff to proc Chilled, Minor Brittle and Minor Maim.

Thurvokun could be used alongside the Main Tank using Lady Thorn so you can AoE Major and Minor Maim the adds, if you are using Frozen Watcher then you won’t need Thurvokun as they do the same thing.

Boss 1 Gear

Boss 2 Gear
