Comments:
This is a Main Tank monster set that can be used in basically every trial. You need to use a Health costing ability such as Balance or Blood Altar to creates a self-synergy which you can create every 10 seconds and use every 20 seconds. When you use the synergy, it applies a debuff to all enemies 360 degrees of the blood ball that it spawns causing AoE Major Maim. The self-synergy feature allows you to improve your Alkosh uptime if you are using that set which can be helpful if your group has a lack of synergies and often in Stamina groups this can be a problem. The Major Maim can be stacked with Minor Maim to debuff an enemies damage by a total of 15%.

This set is still good now for debuffing hard add pulls but since Tank’s don’t use Alkosh anymore and we have access to Major Maim with a 100% uptime via Frost Clench, this has really diminished it’s value.
