Chapter1. Introduction

This build came up from Thag (Thagster) who is playing around warlord some months now and it currently provides some sick numbers. Paragon went to the kinda "casual"
style of playing so if you want a challenge, this is it. 61 Warlord with Riftblade and Beastmaster. Plenty of dots, 15 sec buffs and 1 minute buffs.
Note: It has not tested for leveling/pvp/solo purposes. Also AOE is minimal.
Here we go..


Chapter2. The spec

61warlord/ 9 Riftblade/ 6 Beastmaster
http://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#5g8/8kGGGGGGliGg/2gJ

The 2 sub souls are used for 2 main reasons:

A) Beastmaster is mandatory and it takes advantage of Vicious blow and Brutal Strike which both hit 2 times, boosting even more then WL crystal. So they are used over empower strike and breaking blow. With the Swiftness buff, BM becomes viable in this build.
5points-> Swiftness
1 point-> Vicious blow

B) As a 3rd soul, you need a low point energy saving soul which is Champion or Riftblade. Riftblade provides better dps (for me at least) so thats what im using.
2 points -> Surging energy (you need max energy savings)
2 points -> Elemental empowerment


Chapter3. The Macros

Spam macro:
#show King of the Hill
suppressmacrofailures
cast King of the Hill
cast Decisive strike
cast Piercing Thrust cast Arterial Strike
cast Backhand
cast Vicious Blow

Finisher macro:
#show Killing Field
suppressmacrofailures
cast Killing field
cast Brutal Strike

Flamespear macro:
#show Flamespear
suppressmacrofailures
cast Arterial Strike
cast Flamespear

Own key:
Into the breach, empower strike, breaking blow, battle surge, tactical surge, Mark of Inevitability.


Chapter4. The "rotation"

Its not min maxed at all and for now its 90% priority rotation with some helpful small things. All in all you have to keep up:

1) 5 dots in order to maximize Vicious blow and Brutal strike dmg, which are:
a) 3 dots from cutting slash( stacks up to 3 times)
b) Arterial strike
c) Flamespear

2) Empower strike ( =Strength of Arms for 15 sec)

3) Breaking Blow (=Shatter for 12 sec)

4) 2 Surges, battle and tactical which both last 1 minute.
After all those are up its time to spam ur spam macro and finisher macro.

Opener:
Start with 3 attack points by switching to Paragon (Combat focus) or Tempest.

Tactical Surge
Cutting Slash > Cutting Slash > Cutting Slash > Battle Surge
Arterial Strike > Flamespear > Empower Strike > Breaking Blow

Main rotation:
Spam macro x3 > Finisher Macro

How to re apply all those buffs?
1) Use Cutting Slash whenever its about to fall off in between the spam macro
2) Arterial is alwayz up since its spammed BUT, when Flame spear is about to fall off start with 0 attack points and use
Flamespear macro x2 >empower Strike> Breaking blow

By applying Cutting slash when its about to fall off and with the small cycle above, ur 5 dots and empower/breaking blow are all up.

What about Surges?

Re apply surges as finishers by using them instead of Finisher macro. NOT breaking blow. Flamespear (+Arterial), Empower strike and Breking blow must be like a chain all together.


Important Notes:

A) We have alot of reactives, and the GCD is 1 sec, so be careful with ur finishers. If you hited a 4th builder, dont be pissed off. Hit ur finisher and keep mashing that Spam macro.

B) As i said, its not min maxed but the Flame, Empower strike and Breaking blow line up pretty good.

C) refresh Cutting Slash at 1 sec be4 falls off to be sure!


Chapter5. Numbers

Self buffed, no consumables just Fervor and Voj on CD. To be updated.


Chapter6. Upsides & Downsides

The problems that build has are plenty and thats why its questionable if its raid viable or not.
Poor Swapping target: You need to apply 3 stacks of CS and also Breaking blow to the new target, which makes swaping target pretty slow.
Poor disconnect: appart from flamespear, you have 0 ranged skills to help you when you need to get out for X amount of time. Oh w8...Icy burst..lol.
Poor AOE. appart from some WL skills. havent bothered at all, AE its minimal.
Energy starving. Without fervor or LE, starves in 30 sec or less. Needs VOJ 1000%.

On the other hand, you hit like a fkin truck. You are a true warrior. If paragon seems fast hitting and big numbers, you havent tried Warmaster. I heard like 10-12 critical strikes in a row from my headphones. The game's critical strike sound cannot compete with how fast those criticals are coming.

Some say "it is a dummy spec", "it will get nerfed", "it is not raid viable". Maybe it is, but looking at ur meter 20.5k spikes only self buffed, its fun. And thats all about, having fun with RIFT and terrorize the other callings ^^.
WARLORD - 9 RB 6 BM: 2882 Strength, 4508 AP, 2723 PC, 615 CP
WARLORD - 9 CH 6 BM: 3127 Strength, 4737 AP, 2845 PC, 615 CP
PARAGON - 10 WL 5 CH: 3371 Strength, 4163 AP, 2967 PC, 615 CP
PARAGON - 10 RB 5 Temp: 2882 Strength, 3786 AP, 2723 PC, 615 CP

Questi sono le stats di Thagster che dice di aver parserato 1k+ con le prima due spec rispetto alle due spec sotto che sono appunto delle varianti della paragon.

SEMBRA CHE PER USARE QUESTA BUILD (LA WARLORD) SIA NECESSARIO L'UTILIZZO DEL CRISTALLO. IERI L'HO PROVATA E SUL MANICHINO STAVO SUI 10K SOLO SELF-BUFFED. APPENA RIESCO LO COMPRO (TANTO LO VOLEVO GIA' PRENDERE) E VI INFORMO FINO AD ALLORA RIMANETE SULLA RIFT o PARA PER ST e CHAMP PER AoE
